Hair Issue

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

I am a kaur, I have been amritari since I was a child.

Just a few years ago, I was clinically depressed, and at some point last year, I couldn't bring myself to showerv every day, or anything.

I didn't comb my hair for about a year due to depression, and now my hair is matted and impossible to comb. I still wear a dastaar but my hair is so rough and big, It's bundled up

I want my old hair back, when it was long, silky, and beautiful.

I do NOT want to cut it, obviously. But I am looking for advice. I don't know how to get my old hair back. I wish to never cut it. I know I've made a terrible mistake and I do ardaas, but please help me.

What do you think I should do?

Massage with oil. The way the elders do, getting into the roots and massaging the scalp with a natural oil. When you wash your hair, comb it beforehand, it will be easier to wash and comb after. When washing, don't use a lot of shampoo, just enough to clean it and lukewarm water, not too hot, maybe with a final rinse of cool that is bearable. When drying with towel, don't tug at it or rub it. Just pat dry by sections in between the towel.

Try to dry naturally, but if you need to use hairdryer use less as u can and cool setting after drys.

The only way to remove dreads without removing your Kesh is to really comb your hair, (like it should hurt), something else I would recommend if your not going to cut your Kesh is to wash your hair more constantly than it you currently do like every day, (because dreads are caused from dryness). Also do everything Simran345 said.

Here's a video on how to remove dreadlocks without cutting, but this video shows cutting at the end, you can skip that process, and the hair straightener bit:

There are other methods too on YouTube.

You can comb some at a time. Comb from the bottom up. Before washing, use your hands to remove the tangles and remove tangles when washing. Then comb them before they completely dry. You should be fine. It might take several turns,

Some posted about a similar issue on a different forum, hopefully it helps you

First do an ardass to guru sahib that you wish to comb the nots out.
Use a good quality shampoo and conditioner and develop ideal hair care practice. Towel dry hair by placing all of the kesh together in towel and squeeze towel to soak up the water try to get the hair to a damp state then use your hands like a comb and GENTLY get any big tangles out. Also you could try spray that you can get which helps to untangle hair.
When your kesh is clear of any heavy tangles just GENTLY run kanga through a few times to loosen up more. When kesh is ready for oil massage use quality hair oil such as mustard oil mixed with coconut oil and work into scalp and hair right through to full length of kesh. Better if your mother can apply the oil to your kesh regardless of how much they value kesh!
Finally comb your kesh carefully again to get all hair smooth, straight and tangle free. Tie dastaar. You could also massage oil into scalp/kesh say night before washing your hair as this also can help.
