    the Rastas didn't invent dreadlocks, dreadlocks have been arround forever. Probibally before civilization everyone had dreadlocks!

    Found a little about their origin on the net......


    Dreadlocks have been a part of the history of every spiritual system. From Christianity to Hinduism, locked hair has been been a symbol of a highly spiritual person who is trying to come closer to God(s). If one is to research the spiritual history and meaning of locks, they will be mentioned in all holy books (the biblical Sampson wore his hair in dreadlocks, and his unsurpassed strength was lost when Delilah cut off his seven locks of hair) and cultures. Dreadlock├Ľs roots are commonly traced back to Hinduism and the God Shiva, but stops there. Meanwhile, most people recognize that dreadlocks have their origin in Africa, but nobody seems to know where, how or why! As with everything else, the true origins of dreadlocks can be found in Kemet (Africa).

    Dreadlocks must go back farther than that... What did people do with their hair before combs and brushes were invented?

    I'm sure cavemen didn't have smooth, straight, slick, hair. I'm sure they had dreads, cuz they couldn't comb...

    Haha...this sounds familiar. I had been wanting dreads for a while. There was a girl in one of my classes who had AMAZING dreads. I complimented her on them...but at the same time, I was like "Damn it...now when I do mine, she's going to think I copied her..." lol. I felt a little weird, but I did it anyway. I wore a bandana for the first few days but then I was like...fuck it. It's funny, 'cause a few weeks later, she cut hers off. It was a shame, 'cause they had been so beautiful...but, she was still very pretty...:)
     
  16. i had a similar situation. there was this girl (a friend of a friend) who i had only met once who at the time had braids, but had mentioned she was getting dreads at some point, when i brought it up.. i didnt think much of it, but the next time i saw her i had found out she had gotten her dreads exactly 10 days before i put mine in, but everyone said i was copying her, even though I brought up that i was getting dreads when we met. She even knew the girl i had come over to help me start the suckers growing. but she and our friends got over it, and it pretty much became 'my hair is mine and yours is yours and i dont give a shit what you do to it'

    if you want dreads go for it. who cares what others have or think?

    Bah... who cares if people think you are copying? A dread is a dread is a dread.

    Hah. In middle school, there was this one girl who everyone thought of as 'the hippy'. This being middle school- it meant that she wore peasant shirts that she got at Limited Too. One day I was talking my best friend's ear off about beatnik and hippie culture and he accused me of copying the one girl. Jokingly, of course. But I think it was partly because of the girl's existence that kept me in the hippiness closet until high school.

    I came out of the "Hippiness Closet" a few months ago :sunglasse
    At the moment I have brown curly layered hair with green tips - it looks wicked when it's just been dyed but it fades so easily! It's really annoying though, as soon as I got green tips about 20 people at college did something similar and it wasn't meant to look like everyone else's :mad: ahaha! But none of them wear bandanas or head scarves.

    My friend Mike's just got dreads, it looks super-cool.
