Hair Washing

To today I finally got around to doing my last-hairwash before winter (gotta avoid the dredsicles!)

Been meaning to do it for a while now, but today I'm not leaving the house, so its okay.

I wash with water only, and it keeps my hair clean and fresh smelling. Always amazed though at how heavy my hair is when its loaded with water... ahh well, c'est la vie.

curse you poopdog

bah, I've been reading this community for awhile, and I've wanted dreads for even longer (since, oh..hmm..grade 4) but I still can't get my hair to dread up.
My hair is very...silky, i suppose you can call it, and it NEVER knots. Ever. Never ever. And I mean, it's a good thing if you want nice smooth flat hair...but not if you want nice natural dreads. I haven't combed my hair in nearly a year, and it's completely smooth.
SO! This leads to a torrent of "newbie" questions:
How can I get started? My hair is fine and silky, and a few inches past my shoulder.
What's the best way that you found to start and take care of them?
Step-by-step instructions for the dumb kid in the corner. (re: me haha)
Best products to use (shampoo, wax, ect ect)?
Stuff not to use?
And any other help/hint/ect/whatever/slashes are cool/so on and so forth would be appreciated!
