I'm thinking the same thing. I have a massive matted mess in the back of my head and have actually combed out a couple of the dreads. I too started with backcombing and a little of TnR. I'm going away this weekend and am really thinking of combing them out when I get back.
I've seen on here to soak them in olive oil and or really strong conditioner. I've been able to comb out about 7 of my dreads just by pulling them apart and playing with them, however, mine are only a month old.
I wish I had gone natural from the beginning..... and found this site BEFORE I started.
