I am contemplating dreading my hair, but i don't want to do my entire head.
just a few hidden here and there because of the new job i got. need that tiny bit of catharsis since my blue/green/aqua hair was too unprofessional.
to give an idea of my hair:

i tend to dye/bleach the crap out of my hair.
it has a natural wave/curl to it (not as much as it used to due to all of the chemical abuses)

^ this is presently what my hair looks like

^ untamed hair

^ what my hair looks like at its curliest/healthiest

annddd ive played with synthy dreads for about 5 years now so i feel like i should try to commit

this one is more the look im going for just a few peaking in through my hair:

questions! [edited with clarifications]
does my hair look like it could work with real dreads (im worried about if its too damaged and trying to dread it would be a disaster)
how hard is it to separate the dreads out of your hair when you need to wash/brush the rest of it or a possibility of the baby dreads grabbing onto the loose hair around it?(creating on giant dread mess monster thing
)I read about separating from the roots but would this be a daily thing? is there something to not encourage the collection
is it a huge concern if my normal shampoo gets into the dreads (i was told no residue shampoos are the best for dreads) Looking in the memories it explains how to wash the scalp when you have a full head but I want these on the bottom layers towards the back of my head, making it hard to section out from the rest of my hair.

sorry if this has been asked before, ive been following the posts in here for about a month and im pretty solid on the fact that i want to do it, but would like some input from experts first.
