HELP! developing dreadlock, to comb or not to?

HELP! I have not been on here for a while because my hair suddenly became curlier, healthier, happier, longer (thanks to all the advice here.) I condition wash in the shower, just squeezing the condition through (I have fine, curly hair) and let it air dry. Never use a brush or a comb. But lately I developed a dreadlock! I tried to use a wide tooth comb in the shower to comb through the conditioner, and as gentle as I was, it seemed like a whole lot of hair came out in the shower, which panicked me.

What did I do wrong? How do you ensure no knots or dreads while keeping the lovely curls intact?

Thanks so much!

The thought is that the average person loses approx. 100 hairs per day. If your hair is curly, it typically won't fall out over the course of the day the same way as it would if your hair was straight and so it seems you're losing alot when you detangle.

My hair is fairly long and fine ... I can't prevent tangles unless I wet it everyday which isn't going to happen. By using conditioner to detangle, I rarely have a knot that doesn't come out fairly easily. Occasionally, I have to untie one.

When you say dreadlock, do you mean a really tight ringlet?
