A term describing dreadlocks that are made naturally, without the help of a salon. Knotty dreads are generally kinky in appearance and worn by rastafarians.

Bob Marley's song "Natty Dread" was originally entitled "Knotty Dread": Jamaican pronunciation, however, gives "Knotty" a sound that is almost identical to "natty", precisely the opposite of what the word actually means.
