There are different dreadlocks history according to the different parts of the world associated with the dreadlocks culture.
North African is its Origin
North Africa has many tribes, ethnic groups and cultures have known to sport different dreadlocks styles. Even today, you will find the warriors of Kenya wearing long, thin, red dreadlocks. The spiritual men and women or priests are said to wear dreadlocks. Namib desert in Namibia, is home to one of the oldest ethnic group of the Himba people. The Himba women sport a unique dreadlocks style. As the people of Africa moved around the world, they carried the dreadlocks culture along with them. Soon, different cultures started adapting the dreadlocks in association with their own unique culture.
The ancient Egyptian culture is known for its different cultural flavors that was the basis of their traditionally rich society. Looks of an individual was a major issue as it helped distinguish people according to their social status. Egyptians had different hairstyles according to the age, sex and social standings. If you have a look at the bas-reliefs, statuary and related artifacts from ancient Egypt; you will notice that Egyptians wore a locked hairstyles as well as wigs. The mummified Egyptian pharaohs have been discovered wearing locked hair. It is thought, those who wore dreadlocks in Egypt had a strong social standing and were known to hold a powerful position in the society. One dreadlocks facts is that the oldest societies of the world to wear dreadlocks was the ancient Egyptian culture.
now we can see many people all over the world have dreadlock or wear one. especial in a bar with LED spotlights . i looks amazing. what about you? do you have or have wear one before?

My hair is thick and wavy so it dreads very fast. I'm starting to let it dread up again and it goes rather fast but I need some advice on what shampoo to use.

Hi all! I'm Jackie and i'm new to the site. i've been researching dreads for some time now, and always find myself gravitating toward this site. i am going to be putting in my 2nd set of dreads probably next week. my first set i combed out 10 years ago because i was afraid of what people thought. i think i'm ready to really commit to dreads this time. 'wish i could write more, but the natives(kids) are getting restless. peace and blessings!
