dreadlocks (hair style) made popular by rastas. Got its name from the 'white mans' supposed aversion to them, hence DREAD locks.

dreads are hair locked together by knots which can be usually made by backcombing the hair to make them nice and tight, dread have been around for absolutely ages, seeing as it did start with prehistoric cavemen or cavewomen because they didnt have combs to comb their hair.
Man those are some cool dreads, anyone can have absolutely awesome dreads. it doesnt matter which ethnic background you come from.
