Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner

Hey all. So, I decided, after a few months, that for right now, I do not want dreadlocks. Perhaps some other time in my life, but right now, I just want to grow my hair out long and keep it un-dreaded.The problem is that I am lazy as all hell! The only other time I've had long hair, it started dreading, and my hair right now is in little tendrils. While they don't appear to be knotted, they are really stuck together, and I don't want to cut them off. I can separate most of them and pull them apart, but I haven't tried using conditioner yet, which will hopefully do the trick. I use to use Tea Tree Tingle from Trader Joe's. It has no sulfates, but it does have a sodium something in it. Sodium=salt, but, for instance, sodium bicarbonate in soda causes cancer, so I'm unsure if this will be O.K. for my hair, even though it is most likely way safer then, say, dove conditioner or something like that.I also would like some advice on easy ways to keep my hair not dreading? I don't usually comb as it hurts my scalp, but maybe if I comb with my fingers?Again, I don't see any knots, they don't even appear very tangles, they are just....stuck together....Maybe from oil or something? I don't know. but if I try I can separate them mostly except usually towards the end of where it meets my head almost.Thanks!

Ummm brush your hair and use conditioner? That's what you gotta do if you have long, tangly hair and want to tame it. Believe me, I know.

It's hard to explain. It just doesn't feel right to me. It feels like I have less options. Like if I have long hair, then want to dread it, then I can do that, but if I dread it and then don't want dreadlocks anymore, I have to either comb them out "Ouch!" or cut them. and, I feel like even though they can be easier to manage, they are harder to take care of, because you can't wash your hair whenever you want to, you have to be more careful what you use on your hair (Not that bad of a thing but limits your options you know?)

It just for some reason doesn't feel like something I should do, even though it did before I got these baby ones( which aren't really even dreadlocks I think) to

I've never been found of brushing my hair which is one of many reasons I dreaded it. I commited to brushing (mostly the middle and ends) once a week. I held it at the base so it didn't hurt my scalp and brushed it well enough so it didn't dread. That's it just a quick brush through once a week. If you can spend a few minutes on here then I'm sure you can manage that.

Peace and good luck
