Extensions giving me a rash?

So, I've had extensions done for some time. I mainly have to wear them back in a pony tail or they give me a mean rash on my neck. (being down/pigtails/etc) They are also so course they can rub though my shirt and irritate my upper back..

Question is this: Is there a way to get the extensions to be more soft/not as course like my real hair is? I've had them in for 3-6 months. They are pretty locked up. I've tried washing with different soaps, and lots of playing/bending them. (they are really stiff compared to my real hair, as well. but that's not so much the issue for me)

I bought the spendy human hair from Sally's to make the dreads with. I know they treat hair to make it the color and texture (straight or curly), So that's probably the reason the hair is soooo rough. I would love to have soft hair again. but I'm starting to think that wont happen until my real-haired-dreads grow out long enough to cut off the extensions.

Has anyone else with extensions encountered this issue? Or find a way to fix it?

Thanks guys. Sorry for any spelling errors. I'm on my way out the door to work and I just woke up. z.z
