profile and gauge for felting needles

Hello!

My name is Tom, I'm 20 and English with shoulder length brown dreads...

I am looking to invest in some felting needles, yet am unsure about which profile and gauge is most appropriate for maintaining thickish (1 inch diameter) locks in fine European style hair. Yes, I have scoured the memories and found no specific details.

The following site offers boxes of min. 10 needles at reasonable prices

http://www.winghamwoolwork.co.uk/felting_needles.htm 

they offer the advice
"36 Gauge triangle; for general work, the most popular needle used for many jobs. If you are not certain what to purchase start off with these.  36 Gauge triangle; for general work, the most popular needle used for many jobs. If you are not certain what to purchase start off with these. "

...although I'm aware that this applies to wool, not human hair.

Any help would be appreciated!
I will post a proper introduction with pics when I get some felting done!
Thanks XXX
