How do i unmatt hair that is matted from dandruff and tangles?

I have severe depression and a really bad scalp, and not showering or brushing my hair for a month(can't brush hair dry cause its really curly and long). It got like this but worse in the beginning of the year, it took 13 hours and my mother. I need to do it on my own because she wont do it again and put the effort into it like last time. I am 18 and know i need better hygiene. I am thinking about just buzzing it all off and restarting and slowly get into a routine again as my hair grows back, but i am on the heavier side and dont think it would look good and l i have beautiful hair and would hate to see it go. It is all matted around my scalp and about an inch thick but thw rest of my hair is free.

    Start untangling your hair with a wide tooth comb.  Section your hair and work on one section at a time.  Using the comb start at the ends of your hair and detangle. 

    With the ends untangled you should be able to start working away at the mats near the scalp.
