I think a pic might be helpful so people can see the length and thickness of your hair.

Installing via blanket braid reduces the length of your hair significantly, but if your hair is really really long then this might not be the best method.

Yeah I would suggest blanket braiding. It does shorten hair so it might be worth trying one on your hair without any dreads so you know the length of dreads you would need for your hair. I also found this from the forum about blanket braid for long hair.
MissAnthropik wrote:Oh, and for those with long hair, rather than braid down, and then back up again, there is another way to shorten the length of the braid, which I found easier and neater to do.

When you do the strand of your own hair which kind of wraps around the dread, you can wrap it round twice, and put the second wrap on top of the first one, if you do this with every pass of your own hair then your braid will be twice as short but just as secure.

Maybe others already do this IDK, but to me it was far easier than trying to braid up again which just confused my hands!
