Thanks so much for your support and advice guy's it's much appreciated. I will look into Henna and hopefully there will be someone close by that sells it here.
I am going to start a time line and post some pics up so you can see how my hair looks now, Im in my second day of not brushing my hair and I must say it is quite liberating, I have also had 1 wash with dread shampoo instead of conventional shampoo.
My immediate concern is that my hair is quickly knotting up on the lower half at the back and Im worried that this is going to matt into one large dread or section so to speak. Do I need to be separating this now or do I just leave it and wait as it has only been 2 days? The top half of my hair is basically in a normal state.
Here is a side on picture that was taken today and you can see the tangled area in question. In fact I'm worried that I'm going to have to break hairs as it has tangled that quickly.
