Heavy Locks (Question)

I've had my dreads for about a year. I've had problems with hair weight issues even before I had my dreads (I have super-thick hair), so I thinned half of it out before I began, but I knew eventually I'd come to where I am now, and the strain on my neck is killing me. I love my new dreads, they are really starting to go in the direction I want them. Does anyone have any advice on thinning out dreads? I like my length (about half-way down my back). Would it be a problem cutting off a few dreads? Is there a way to thin dreads without losing length? I've done a lot of searching online and through the memories but really haven't found any solutions.
