Hey, guys. I just joined within the past two minutes after spending a lot of last night scoping through everyone's entries. (:

I'm 16 and I've tried at dreadlocks about.. I think 4 times. Or maybe it was 5, I dont know. But I got a lot of advice from a lot of people, yet none of the advice worked for me! That, and I really just had no idea how to do it, and thus ended up torturing my hair to the point where it was falling out. I had to buzz my head twice (not that I minded, I liked that). Well, now my hair is just an inch or so past shoulder-length and its extremely healthy again, but...
I want to destroy it with dreadlocks the right way this time. I'm sure my hair is really upset with me, but I'm determined! I know that they wont look how I want them to look for at least (insert really long time here), but I'm willing to deal with that.

Does anyone have any suggestions on just how to start? Maintenance? Products (if any)? Not to mention, it'd be the best thing in the world if I could find someone anywhere in Tennessee who could dread them up for me so that I could take care of them without worrying that I'd done it wrong again.

And now for some
... really crappy pictures!

Does anyone know how bangs would fit into this equation? Would I just have to leave them undreaded until they drew out a little more, or.. What? I have no idea. Thanks for your time!
