brushing out dreads?

does anyone have any tips on getting dreads out? i have had mine for about 9 months or so and i think it is possible although it will take a long time. i do love my dreads but i guess i am going through this period where i notice my dreads affecting my career/job oppurtunities and also the boy that i really like (who lives over 3000 miles away) wants to be able to lay next to me and play with my straight hair... and i know i shouldnt listen to him but.. i know he is right. i miss my straight hair.. and its not like i cant dred my hair again someday right?

i guess i am torn between brushing them out and leaving them.... please help!!!!!

just a question - does anyone have really curly hair and dreaded? to straighten mine out i re-backcomb (a lot) and i loose a lot of hair by doing so, so i was just looking for some other options.

can someone explain, in full detail, the rip & twist method? i've read about it here but i still dont get it. thanks so much!

exactly what is sewing dreads and how do you do it and what are the benefits and disadvantages to it? i've had my dreads since feb. 22 and they are finally started to grow the unbackcombed layer of dread. should i throw some wax in that part or leave it without wax?


i want to dye my roots black like the rest of my hair- but everything i've ever used has made my hair slick and shiny which is kinda counterproductive when you are still trying to get your dreads in that tight and strong kind of idea.

does anyone have any suggestions on what kind of dye to use?
