Hi, I'm new.

Well, I'm new here and I have a couple of questions. First off, I'm planning on getting dreads in the next year or so. My hair isn't exactly short, but it used to be and its grown to be just past my shoulders and I want it to get a bit longer because I know I'll lose length during the dreading process. My main question is this, I'm mixed racially and I have curly hair, but my hair has been chemically straightened for years. So it isn't thin/fine, still coarse, but straight. I'm wondering if that would make a difference in dreading? Also, will the texture of my dreads change once my curly roots start to grow out? Thanks.
