A "dirty hippie" is more than likely a "neo hippie." They usually have dirty dreads, IF THEY ARE NOT A POSER..They probably dig on the Grateful Dead, Phish, and other cool jam bands. Some are artists. Some are strictly drug users. Some are homeless. Some have Jobs...BUT MOSTLY THEY HAVE SHIRTS THAT CAN STAND UP BY THEMSELVES AFTER PHISH TOUR..Patchouli sadly doesnt cover everything up
Me At one time..and some good phriends of mine...Ya gotta love em'!!!

Back in the days of the first hippies, uptights (Straights, drones) added "Dirty" in front of "hippie" to try further degredate Free Thinkers. Very simply, the straights started calling Free Thinkers "hippies" and it dinna bother them. So they started calling them "Dirty hippies" to try to get a raise out of them.
