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.

hairstyle consisting of chunks of hair locked together, thus DREAD LOCKS (wow now wasn't that fun?). mainly worn by people of the rastafari culture and skanky surf punks in california.
That rasta's dreads are totally awesome, especially cuz it symbolizes his african roots and not his lame attempt to be something he's not.

While shopping in the Quiki-Mart yesterday, I dreaded turning down the aisle for fear of coming face-to-face with "Ozzy Osbourne".
