    Hi Trikki2 - that happened to me just before my second chemo after I had wet my hair in the shower.  I came out with a big mat in the back and sat there in tears trying to comb it out - in the end I had to cut some on it out - was no other way I was getting rid of it could not get a comb through it to save myself.  Good luck xoxoxox

    Yep, conditioner was always used when my hair was a mess @Trikki2
     .... it makes it slippery so the comb goes thru easier ....

    If it is REALLY REALLY matted (like Rasta Dreadlocks ...) you'd pretty well have to just  chop it off & start again, I reckon!  :(
