“There are some who like dreadlocks for cultural identity. They just feel more comfortable wearing their hair in a way that seems natural to them instead of straightening it out with hot tools or chemicals”
While this may seem like a noble cause – the desire to return to one’s roots and connect to one’s identity, most of the society still treats dreadlocks as an entertainer’s luxury or a social ill. Like yahoo-yahoo.
The Police, backed by various government directives, view dreadlocks not through judgmental eyes, but handcuffs, threats and white vans that hold up to 10 people at a time.
The natural hair trend has occured across gender lines and men with locks can find their sisters with their hair billowing in its shea-butter laden glory.
Sooner or later, someone might need to ask the police if dreadlocks ever killed anybody.
