Need some major help. anyone ever had this happen?

I am in need of some help with my baby dreads.
I started dreading my hair in October, and it was going pretty decent until I got into a bike accident. I couldn't use my left arm for six weeks so I couldn't keep up with doing my dreads every day anymore. So they got zero maintance.
And then they started doing this really odd thing one time after I had them washed, they started really tangling and bunching together so that they started sticking up from my hair. Which is also really strange because before dreads, my hair was longer than shoulder length and now its just sticking out my head looking really short.
These are the best photos I have of my most current hair, it was at a christmas party :) 
(you can see my poor sling too :( ) 

I've tried ripping them apart but some  are so bunched up together it's kind of impossible.
Does anyone have any solutions for this? I really want to keep my dreads because I've been through so much so with them and they've become such a part of me now, but I want them to look more like normal dreads, rather than sticking up awkwardly everywhere. I do love the style theyre in, but I'm afraid theyre tangling more and more every day to a point where I will have to shave them :/

Also, if anyone lives in Santa Cruz, California, and would like to help me out in person, I would be more than grateful for that.

Thanks for reading.
