Using a rat-tail comb, gently pick at the bottom of the dreadlock. Continue adding water and conditioner as you pick the dreadlock loose. Expect hair loss.

After the dreadlock unravels, spray it with the conditioner and water mixture. Use a standard comb to remove any excess hair. Repeat the entire process for each dreadlock.
