Why White Girls love Wearing Dreadlocks

White girls love to wear dreadlocks.  Some of these women who wear dreads are hippies, punk or just regular everyday people who want to express themselves through their hairstyle.  You may ask why would someone who had long, straight or curly soft hair want their hair to get matted into dreadlocks?  Well, I can’t answer for the white ladies because I am an African-American, however, my humble opinion on white girls wearing dreadlocks are neutral.  I say this because people wear their hair in many different styles for many different reasons.  It’s not just a Black thing or a Caribbean thing or a Jamaican thing or even Rastafarian thing.   It goes a lot deeper than most people know.  Some people wear their hair locked for religious reason, while others look at dreadlocks as simply a fashion statement.

Regardless of your reason for wearing dreadlocks, here is a brief history of the hairsyles origin:

Dreadlocks have been worn by nearly every culture at some point in time or another. Roman accounts stated that the Celts wore their hair ‘like snakes’. The Germanic tribes and Vikings were also known to wear their hair in dreadlocks. Dreadlocks have been worn by the monks of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, the Nazarite of Judaism, Qalandri’s Sufi’s, the Sadhu’s of Hinduism, and the Dervishes of Islam, and many more! There are even strong suggestions that many early Christians wore dreadlocks; most notably Sampson who was said to have seven locks of hair which gave him his inhuman strength!
