Basic questions from a newbie

Hello, everyone.

I just joined this group today because I am contemplating growing dreadlocks. I've been reading through a lot of posts and I have been getting a lot of useful information.

Question 1: What do I need to do first? I have no idea where to start or what I need in preparation.

Question 2: How difficult are the dreads to maintain? And what exactly is involved in maintenence?

Question 3: Is the only way to 'take them out' to cut them out?

(Informational note - I'm black and my hair is about three inches in length as I am just growing it out after wearing a natural for three years. It's currently lightly relaxed. I didn't know if this made a difference or not.)

I know those questions are pretty basic (and probably silly) and I apologize for bringing them up to you all. This seems to be a friendly community, so I was hoping that I could get some help.

Thanks a lot!
