A hairstyle originating in Africa, done by tightly twisting the hair until the strands lock together.

The name "Dreadlocks" originated on European slave-ships during the middle passage.

The white crews would bring the enslaved Africans up on deck to wash them off. They saw that the thick Hair of the Africans, full of vomit, blood, and shit, had matted into "dreadful locks".

It is therefore offensive and incorrect to refer to the dolltails worn by ignorant white children as Dreadlocks.
White child: "Hey man, what do you think of my Dreadlocks?"

"I think they're very useful as a visual indicator of your ignorance. I will now avoid you forever."

When Jonathan Davis from the nu-metal band KoRn (backwards R mandatory) became to bloated to wash his hair, he began letting it twist and rot naturally. As it began germinating, dreadlocks ensued. It was this natural evolution that made his locks the filthiest in all the land. After being turned down on a date by fellow frontman of Disturbed, David Dreiman, Jonathan Davis soon realized he had to do SOMETHING with that luscious head of hair. This is why he has these luscious tubes forming from his scalp. Don't be fooled kids, it's not a wig. This is the real deal.
David Dreiman: EW, LOOK @ UR HA@!RRRR!


David Dreiman: K babycakes.

a combination of toothpaste poop and peanut butter placed strategically throughout the hair to create dreadlocks
Person 1: your dreadlocks look great how did you make them
Person 2: I combined my poo with peanut butter and toothpaste of course and thought it would look great in my hair
