Combing out dreads started via different methods

Just a quick question that I've been thinking about for a while geared towards people who have combed their dreads out:

Is it much more difficult to comb out dreads that were made via the rip and twist method vs. just straight backcombing?  Is it possible to save as much hair from the rip n twist method as it is with the backcombing method when combing out locks?  

I ask because mine were formed with a combination of rip n twist and backcombing... and I'm thinking that the rip n twist has damaged my hair and therefore I'm wondering if when/if I go to comb them out, I'm going to be left with loads of damaged hair that I'll have to cut off, if I can comb them out at all!  

I'd just like to hear of some experiences from people who have combed out dreads started with each method.  

Thanks :)
