Dreadlocks with MOJO

Showing up in a variety of cultures through early human history, dreadlocks have continued to hold their own against more contemporary hairstyles of the day, transcending time, culture and social status. It was practised in the African and Indian culture. Indian saints consider the locks to be sacred and grow them as a religious practice. The Rastafarians, who coined the word 'Dreadlocks' in the 1950's, used it to connote a person growing these locks is living in dread of God, and hence the name stayed. Marley, himself, identified as a Rastafarian and it was his dreadlocked style that brought the dreads into the mainstream where it has expanded into many other subcultures.
