Hey guys, sorry if you have heard this question a million times before. I really want to get dreads, but when I asked the one guy I know who has dreads about whether or not they would work with my hair he said "no, your hair's too thin and oily."

So now I don't know if I should do it or not. I know when I first get them they'll be poofy and all, I don't mind that. The thing is that I have very weird hair; it's very thin (but there's a lot of it), it's extremely oily, long, and straight.

Really bad picture:

So my question is... if I get dreads would it be disastrous? If not is there anything in particular I should do, like get them professionally done or something? Or should I just have some friends over, spray the dreads with salt water and hope for the best?

Edit: Thanks for all the advice guys! Much appreciated. :)
