Starting dreads from extensions of old dreads?

Ok, so I cut my dreads off in a moment of craziness this summer. I saved them all and I also have a bag of my friends old mature dreads. Right now I have hair that's about 2-6 inches long all over the place, and I'm considering just starting over but with using the old dreadies as extensions to start the set. I want to wait a couple months and let my hair grow out a little bit more before I start trying to attach them.  Does anyone have any experience with this? I went through the memories, but didn't find much.

starting dreads and chemical damage

Hi everyone, this is my first post, and I've been doing a lot of research into dreads/starting and the process for the past week.  I plan to start mine after Christmas, but as of right now my hair is pretty badly damaged from being overdyed.  I've looked through the memories and didn't really find anything specific to what my question is(sorry if this has been answered!).  But basically I want to know how will this affect my dreads when I start them?  Will it have a negative impact? 
Thanks for any help :)
