White people with dreadlocks!

Published by at 3:00 am under Jerks

white dreadlocks

It is not going to be easy getting through this without vomiting.

I hate hippies. Everyone hates hippies. The only thing worse than a hippie is a hippie with dreadlocks. Ew, a little barf just came up. By definition dreads are disgusting. They are born from neglect and filth (on white people). HOWEVER, somehow it works on real Rasta dudes. BLACK Rasta dudes! It’s an entirely different story when Brad from Cinnabon lets his disgusting hair brush against your cinnamon roll. Sure, Brad loves Sublime and owns Bob Marley’s Greatest Hits on CD and MP3 but he’s hardly “jammin.” Now get me another cinnamon roll you smelly hippie and this time keep that shitty hair of yours out of my delicious icing! You know what Brad, forget it, I don’t even want a cinnamon roll anymore, in fact I may never eat again.

Ironically, these white dirt bags attempt to give off this “hey man whatever” vibe when in reality they are thinking, “hey man look at me, I’m cool, I’m different, do you think I’m cool, I’m in your face, me me me love me.”

If my kid ever tried to pull this shit I would ship him off to Jamaica to live in a tenement yard in Trenchtown.

    We have this problem in england too… we call them “the gathering of the great unwashed”

    one of my friends had dreadlocks and never washed his hair… in a drunken state i decided to put a dingleberry / clegnut in his hair (the tinys bits of fluff that get caught in a man butt hair) and wipe it into one of the biggest greasiest one, i had great delight in telling everyone we met that he had my shit fluffy in his locks… 3 months later he shaved them off…. SORTED :)

    if we all did this then there would not be any dreadlocks to spoil our day.. and food

    (although saying all this… the girl in the right picture is hot and i sooooo would… i feel dirty even writing this… maybe we can F*ck in the bath… at least then i would feel a little cleaner)

    I was trapped at the tag office yesterday to get my car title and there was a white guy throwing me the old hairy eyeball. Normally I’m fairly neutral to this sort of thing but this one was different. He had, and I shit you not, KNEE LENGTH DREADS! I smelled him before I even noticed him. All I could think about where his long, smelly, dirty hair tentacles touching me anywhere. By the time my number was called I was chocking back vomit. I think I just ruined my day by reliving the event. Now I need another shower.

  3. Creature of Habiton 28 Jan 2009 at 7:36 am

    Here, here! Dreads are nasty. And heavy. I hope they all have chronic neck pain.

    Hair Tentacles…..LMAO…that is a perfect description!

    Nothing says unemployed part-time bohemian liberal arts major living on daddy’s cash like dreadlocks on a honky

  5. mikeon 28 Jan 2009 at 10:53 am

    wow, dinkleberries smeared into your friend’s dread. that is so wrong. I think i would have to stab you. or at least pistol whip you with my pooplocks. Or smear my pooplocks in your bedsheets. or after i shave my locks, cut them up in a thousand pieces and sprinkle a few hairs in all of your food for a number of years and then finally tell you afterward. poor lame guy must have felt so defeated.

    but still i strongly agree dreads on white guys is so douchy. they just take for ever to grow. poor guy.

    List Man, i am surprised that white people with dreads haven’t made your list earlier. They are almost as lame as wiggers. but how bout this for douchy though, I’ve recently started seeing men in LA and Long Beach sporting hair braid extensions, i.e. Axel Rose.

  6. You Just Made My List!on 28 Jan 2009 at 10:57 am

    Mike – Braids? The world should really be blown up.

  7. mikeon 28 Jan 2009 at 11:29 am

    For real huh?! you’ve seen Axel recently haven’t you?




  8. rachelon 28 Jan 2009 at 12:53 pm

    you must have *loved* that douchie, dreaded-up, travolta look-a-like on “Idol” last season…. nothing says “fuck the establishment” more than a white kid with dreads, hamming it up on Ryan Secrest’s lap.

  9. You Just Made My List!on 28 Jan 2009 at 1:03 pm

    Rachel – that dick weed’s brother tried out for Idol this year and he’s even a BIGGER tool! He has emo, flat-ironed pink and black hair. He described himself as the more manly of the two brothers. What a family of disappointing douchebags. Their poor father.

  10. Neishon 28 Jan 2009 at 1:08 pm

    Ugh! These freaks run rampant at my university! I shall take a picture and share if I get the chance…one girl in particular with nasty smelly fugly dreads has all sort of shit in it. Beads, hemp rope, bottle caps, pop tabs, I think I even saw a metal washer too. I want a crow to land on her and rip all that crap out and then stab its beak into her eye.

  11. hodanon 28 Jan 2009 at 5:25 pm

    You are gross Kieron Moore, but effective.

  12. rachelon 28 Jan 2009 at 6:01 pm

    YJMML- i saw douche II, the second coming..my husband and i were laughing our asses off. i hate his stupid hair, his stupid singing and his stupid brother. let’s place some bets on “hollywood week”. can’t effing wait.

  13. rachelon 28 Jan 2009 at 6:03 pm

    Neish- a picture of the shit in the hair, PLEASE!

  14. SanFranon 28 Jan 2009 at 6:07 pm

    Neish: Your description reminds me of the garbage compacter in Star Wars, with that trash-snake thing swimming around.

  15. wtf.....on 30 Jan 2009 at 9:58 pm

    …..is axl rose thinking? I really only THOUGHT that he was stupid for losing GnR, but now I have seen it in real time.
    How sad

  16. jason313on 05 Feb 2009 at 6:46 pm

    first off you dumb fucking bimbo ass bitch, dreads have been around since the 30’s as part of a RELIGOUS culture. i was born in kingston, jamacia and everyone down there wears dreads. its a rastaferian way of care free life. how dare you, you dont know HORSE SHIT about dreads, there history, or obviously there maintenence. because rastas DO wash their dreads and keep them clean. and fuck you all, your are all obviously self loathing, retarded, dumb shit fucks and you dont what the fuck your talking about. Go screw yourselves til theres no orgasisms left in your fishy vaginas and 1/2 inch dicks you stupid fucks.

  17. You Just Made My List!on 05 Feb 2009 at 7:17 pm

    Jason – Wow, did you have a hard day at Hot Topic? Mellow out. Smoke some weed and chill. Put on your favorite 311 album and relax!

    BY THE WAY you fucking turd it’s spelled “Rastafarian” not “rastaferian.” It’s hard to lecture people on a culture you claim to love so much when you can’t even spell it.

    I suggest you go back and re-read what I wrote. You can read right? Oh, did you just see the pictures and get mad?

    Now, get back to “washing” your white dreads and listening to No Doubt.

  18. Patrickon 07 Feb 2009 at 2:55 am

    I’ve gotta defend the Rasta guy, List dude. You said the following: “By definition dreads are disgusting. They are born from neglect and filth. ” That’s a pretty stupid, ignorant thing to say. It’s patently false. Dreads have a very significant meaning to Rastas, it’s not because their hair got dirty. I think that’s what he was taking exception to, not just the pictures.

  19. Patrickon 07 Feb 2009 at 2:57 am

    What I’m saying, and sorry for the double post, is that you sound like you’re saying that Jamaican people are too neglectful and filthy to take care of their hair, and thus they got dreadlocks. Understand why a Jamaican might be pissed?

  20. You Just Made My List!on 07 Feb 2009 at 10:51 am

    Patrick – I wasn’t trying to imply people with dreads are disgusting (unless they are white). I was just pointing out that to grow dreads you have to let your hair get matted by not washing it. The point is this, white people with dreads look like assholes and there is no chance “Jason313″ is Jamaican or has ever been to Jamaica. He’s just one of those typical guys who will say anything to get his point across.

  21. brownielockson 13 Feb 2009 at 1:30 pm

    The thread may be dead but when did that ever stop me. First of all, I am a black woman who has had dreads for about 13 years. Second, I have had many idiots tell me that dreads are inherently nasty because they’re not washed, or washable. This despite my smelling rosily of Suave. Third, I have even been told that I am unemployable because of my choice of hairstyle (this despite a college degree and working continuously since then). I even had the brother of a so called friend wax long and eloquently about how I must be rolling them with cow dung to keep them so neat and orderly (BTW, if you are an Indian holy man, there’s nothing wrong with that.)
    Just a little science. Hair is not perfectly smooth, but is a shaft made up of segments. When the segments are allowed, (or encouraged) to interlock, the fibers felt into dreadlocks. This process is caused by anything but neglect, and is painstakingly achieved by backcombing, applying wax, dread perms (ugh), twisting, or washing. That’s right. When hair is washed in warm water, the hairshaft segments open up. The agitation causes the hair to hook together. When it cools off, the shaft closes again, and the hair becomes “locked.” WASHING helps dreads. Nasty people are just nasty, and whatever hair they had would be nasty.
    Whew. I feel lightheaded. That was a good one. Black women tend to be obsessed with hair and I just got carried away. BTW, love the blog.

  22. You Just Made My List!on 13 Feb 2009 at 3:39 pm

    Brownielocks – Thanks for the info. I guess I should have been more clear and less snarky/lazy when I wrote this post because all I really want to complain about was white people with dreads. I think black men and women with dreads look bad ass!

  23. Perryon 14 Feb 2009 at 2:20 am

    “I really want to complain about was white people with dreads. I think black men and women with dreads look bad ass!”

    Can we say the same about shaved heads? Black guys look awesome with shaved heads. White guys look like fucking douchebags.

  24. Maestroon 12 Nov 2009 at 8:14 am

    I know this thread is probably dead, but thought i’d say anyway, you guys make me sick………such unbelievable intolorance and ignorance. For the record some white people have dreadlocks because their hair is so curly that it locks naturally in the same way that black hair does. I have dreadlocks because of this reason, why on earth should you think so ill of me for a reason that I cannot change. Actually I quite like the choice of being able to have natural dreads. Unemployment was not nor never shall be an issue. I gaduated with flying colours from one of the most prestigiuos music conservatoires is the world and have since gone intoa fullfilling career as a freelance composer and conducter, travelling the world to conduct and compose. I also made sure that I did my homework about Rastafarianism, so that when I came up against ignorant biggots like your dear selves (brownielocks excluded) I would be armed with sufficient knowledge to bamboozle you all in to submition. I am not a rastafarian. In my mind I cannot be because I am not black…….this bears not relation however to the ridiculous things you’re all saying. Oh yeah and I married the love of my life and own my own house.
    basically I pity you all……you have no idea, and one day you be dealt your just deserts.

  25. You Just Made My List!on 12 Nov 2009 at 10:30 am

    Maestro – You don’t have dreads because of your naturally curly hair, you have dreads because you are a nerd. You could be the most accomplished person in the world but nobody will ever take you seriously as long as you walk around with your ridiculous, disgusting, white mop head.

    P.S. I am great at everything too.

  26. Rasta Jon 20 Nov 2009 at 6:29 pm

    I am White. I have followed the Rasta teachings my whole life I have dreads down to the middle of my back and before you try and say what a douch I am, look at the facts. you are right about one thing, we HATE white kids that wear dreads to look cool and we HATE the idiot kids that that say they are Rasta, grow dreads and have no fucking idea what Rasta is. Even if you do follow rastafari the growing of dreads is not somthing you do with chemicals because that in its self is not what we belive. we know that to be compleatly pure you cannot eat, drink, or wear anything with chemicals. it is also true that most of the jackass kids that get dreads are just stoners. In my opion you are not compleatly wrong but to say that no white person should ever get dreads that is were you are wrong.

    P.S. Dont say rastafarien it’s just Rasta or Rastafari

  27. C_Son 12 Apr 2010 at 6:22 am

    Hi, I am a white woman, with African and gypsy heritage, and a Jamaican husband. My husband and his family actually encouraged me to get dreadlocks, and I have now had them for about 10 years. I am proud of my dreadlocks, I am proud of my heritage, and I don’t really understand why having a pale skin colour should prevent me from feeling as if I am entitled to have dreadlocks. Surely that’s just a form of racism? If my Jamaican husband, his family, and my African family, are all OK with my dreadlocks, then what right does someone who doesn’t even know me have, to criticize my having them? In fact, my grandmother (black, African) cherishes my dreadlocks, because she has them too, and she sees it as a sign of unity between us. The amount of times people have shouted abuse at me for having dreadlocks is unreal, and the few people who have actually bothered to ASK me why I have dreadlocks (Jamaican husband, African heritage) have shut up pretty quickly. I know black people with dreadlocks who know nothing about rastafarian culture, who have lived their whole lives in England. And honestly, I don’t see why THEIR dreadlocks are accepted, whilst mine are not. My children are half-Jamaican and are all dreaded. Do people mean to tell me that my children are entitled to have dreadlocks, but I am not, purely because my skin is lighter than theirs? Some morons have even used the excuse ‘well it’s not natural for white hair to be in dreadlocks’… Well I’m white, and my dreadlocks grew naturally, because I inherited very curly hair from my African family. I agree, some white people who have dreadlocks are uneducated about their cultural significance, and only have them because they’re pretentious dickheads who wanna look like they’re ‘rebelling’. But don’t assume that all us white people with dreadlocks can be categorised with this bunch of idiots. I have white friends with NO black ancestry whatsoever, who love their dreadlocks, and who are educated about their cultural background. And honestly, I genuinely believe they have just as much right as my husband to have dreadlocks. In fact, my husband- born in Denham Town (Kingston) and raised in Spanish Town- would agree wholeheartedly. At the end of the day, I am white, I am proud of my skin, I am proud of my dreadlocks, I am proud of my background and heritage. And I do not for the life of me understand why this pride causes such offence to others. And just for the record, I wash my hair every two days, so I am far from filthy.

  28. You Just Made My List!on 12 Apr 2010 at 8:28 am

    C S – Sadly for you, most white kids with dreadlocks are dickheads who are not doing it for any religious or cultural reasons. They just want to play dress-up and escape the fact that they work at Best Buy. They are my target. In any case, don’t take my website too seriously, I hate me too.

  29. dahliaon 08 May 2010 at 9:01 pm

    I’m 34 and white. I have dreadlocks because I want them. I always found them aesthetically pleasing, but did have concerns about cleanliness, believing they could not be washed. In retrospect, I have no idea why I believed that, other than it seems to be the consensus among many people. However, it is a huge misconception. I never used wax in my dreadlocks, and I wash my hair regularly. In fact, my hair now is probably cleaner than it was before I allowed it to lock, as I use residue-free shampoo and no products in my hair.

    The belief that dreadlocks are inherently dirty is utterly unfounded. Are there people sporting dirty dreads (Caucasian AND African-American)? Absolutely. Are there people sporting dirty unlocked hair? Absolutely. The style in which one wears one’s hair is not related to one’s hygiene.

  30. aon 15 May 2010 at 3:48 am

    hey i got dreads im white im just embracing my culture dick
    blacks werent the first with dreads and even if they were we all came out of africa nigger sorry not so pc. suck my cock

  31. You Just Made My List!on 15 May 2010 at 9:39 am

    A – Hmmmmm, you make some interesting points and you make them intelligently. In fact, you might just be the most eloquent person to ever leave a comment on this site. I’m sure both black and white people with dreads are happy to have you speaking for them. Maybe one day you will be elected president of dreadlocks or whatever, your club is called.

  32. madion 22 May 2010 at 10:19 am

    sometimes i think dredlocks are hot on white guys !
    esp. http://www.nogg.se/upload/1/BloggPhoto_16485tom.jpg
    tom kaulitz<3
    but, i don't think there's anything wrong with a white person using a prominently african hairstyle.
    shoot, tom even has cornrows now and works them!

  33. You Just Made My List!on 23 May 2010 at 10:57 am

    madi – Who the fuck is Tom Kaulitz? He looks like a supreme douchebag!

  34. scotton 23 May 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Even the most perfunctory search would show that dreads have been around for thousands of years. Cultures, peoples, religious sects from all over the entire planet have worn locked styles of hair. I know this is satire, but some of your readers are idiots.

  35. You Just Made My List!on 23 May 2010 at 11:31 pm

    Scott – Yes, some of my readers are idiots but that does not excuse dreads on white people. It just doesn’t.

  36. Dubson 27 May 2010 at 10:52 am

    I am a black man with dreadlocks.
    I think that my problem with “most” white people with dreadlocks is the fact that they do not keep them clean or kept looking decent.
    And because of that, it makes it harder for me (a black man) with dreadlocks to get employment because so many white people with them have set up a list of stereotypes that seem to apply to all people with dreadlocks.

  37. You Just Made My List!on 27 May 2010 at 10:56 am

    Dubs – I agree.

  39. thehippie3352on 02 Jun 2010 at 11:26 pm

    This is such a racist forum lol

    I’m a white male (with locks) i have a job.

    Not sure at all why some people think were trying to be black?

    Your hair wants to lock, every time you comb it, your preventing it from locking (all they are is just matted hair) which will form on any thng with hair. Animals form locks if not groomed, or they trying to be black? lol

    Not trying to get racist but black people or the ones trying to be white. How all these black people get straight hair? lol thats not natural, probably have to use all types of products an tools.

    I don’t do anythng to my locks. All i did was backcomb them in just to speed up the process and just left them alone, all i do is wash em every 2 or 3 days.


  40. Dubson 03 Jun 2010 at 8:57 am

    The only reason that black people have their hair straight is based on cultural appropriation.
    Most African Americans were brought to the Americas unwillingly, and as you know, the white population is the majority here.
    Unfortunately, we are stuck in a system within the black community where lighter skin and straight hair is the attractive design.
    I wear my hair in locks to break that system and to allow blacks to see that straightening their hair is the only attractive thing.
    While I also understand, you’ll say, “people have had their hair in dreadlocks for millenniums and that is the natural way that hair is.”
    But you starting your “dreadlocks” by backcombing is the same as a black woman or man straightening their hair.

    Hello hypocrite!

  41. Dubson 03 Jun 2010 at 8:57 am

    Plus your name is “The Hippy.”
    Come on. Really?!

  42. thehippie3352on 03 Jun 2010 at 11:47 pm

    sorry for sounding like a hypocrite lol

    thehippie :)

  43. Lazeron 29 Jun 2010 at 10:41 pm

    Wow, There is so much to be said about what you all are writing. First, I must say that dreadlocks are way more respectable than watching american idol. Even further, writing about it on this retarded website. I can’t imagine what this guys hair looks like, I’ll take wild guess by saying Mullet or bald(ing). I hope that you never come to the town that I live in. You might have a heart attack. You’re probably a fat lazy conservative or even worse, a bitchy, self righteous, middle aged, liberal that had hippy parents that kept you up all night to Jimi Hendrix and pot smoke. Oh, and the pictures at the top of the page ARE the worst locks I have ever seen. It’s as if you went on google and typed in “worst dreadlocks ever” then used those pics to set the bar for all Locks. But, it’s not just dreads you have a problem with is it? It’s pretty much everything. I think that you should find a different planet to live on that is made up of darkness and the smell of you own ass. Maybe then you’ll be satisfied. Until then you’re screwed.
    To sum this all up as I know that I can and do ramble. I am white and have dreadlocks, I’m not a (as I like to call them) Trustafarian, I don’t have trouble getting work, and don’t believe in the rainbow (drainbow) prophecy. Some at first glance may label me as a “hippy” (whatever that is in 2010) but after five minutes of talking to me soon realize that I am far from a mooching, unmotivated smelly piece of sh*t, or wankster(assholes) or gangster. Last but not least. In the words of someone who got me through a poor child hood. IF YOU DON’T LIKE ME, BLOW ME!

  44. Lazeron 29 Jun 2010 at 10:45 pm

    Oh and the guy right center at the top?? WTF? I think I might drag him around by those silly things. LOL!

  45. You Just Made My List!on 29 Jun 2010 at 10:47 pm

    Lazer – Do I have to blow you? Are your pubes dreadlocked too?

  46. Breanneon 13 Jul 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Wow. I just accidentally stumbled upon this website…
    & I never realized that people could have such strong negative feelings for someone because of their hair.
    It’s pretty ridiculous.
    I’m a white chick.
    & no, i’m not rasta.
    Nor am I a “dirty hippie”

    But, I do have dreadlocks.
    & as a matter of fact, I did not refrain from washing my hair to get them. That’s gross! Before you lecture others about preaching what they don’t know, you should probably do a little research of your own.
    They’re actually properly done by sectioning and teasing the hair, then rolling them with special wax to keep them neat and tidy.
    A lot of work goes into having nice dreads, and I find it very offensive that because I’m white and i chose to do a certain HAIRSTYLE, that it’s considered “dirty” or “disgusting”. What ignorant statements you people are making…
    I suppose all blondes are dumb, too, right?

    You know, It’s really sad the things that people make time to hate…

  47. You Just Made My List!on 13 Jul 2010 at 7:49 pm

    I don’t care if dreadlocks or actually clean, my main point is that white people with dreadlocks look like douchebags.

    I love you.

  48. Cariziaon 21 Jul 2010 at 10:45 am

    Seriously, people? With the exclusion of the few people that don’t sound like dicks, YOU PEOPLE ARE ALL ASSHOLES. Its a freaking HAIRSTYLE. A hairstyle. Let me say that one more time for you stupid fucks. A. HAIRSTYLE. No matter what we’re talking about right now, aren’t there far more important things to worry about? Or shall I say, actually be happy about? Why is everyone FLIPPING OUT about something so stupid? Get over it, its not your business. Okay, so some people (white or black, locked or unlocked) have disgusting unwashed hair. No matter their skin color, or whether they wash their hair or not, its not your business to bash on them. Like really, you immature idiots, GET OVER IT.
    That’s all I have to say, and I don’t care whether you agree with me or not. Thanks.

  49. You Just Made My List!on 21 Jul 2010 at 12:01 pm

    Carizizizia – Who’s flipping out now? Gee whiz, you are pretty amped up for a hippie. You seem to be the person who is excessively worried about this subject. Go smoke some weed and listen to some Sublime, I hear they have a new singer.

  50. xXxon 22 Jul 2010 at 1:57 am

    @ a
    YES black people WERE the FIRST people with them. Our hair can naturally dread by itself you idiot. White people wearing braids and dreads now CAME from US. What i hate is when WE do things and ‘SOME’ white people just try to blow it off as if they started it. NO This is ours you fool and dont get it twisted.
    and NO all races did NOT come from africa they came from AFRICANS meaning when we left and moved further out we changed. YOU have no claim to africa or anything within it. I am very happy he posted this to bring it out and show how lame all of you are.
    White Rastas you guys are no different from white “gangsters” wiggers. Grow the hell up. Just so you all know just because we do not say anything does not mean we are not laughing at your stupid looking asses.

  51. You Just Made My List!on 22 Jul 2010 at 7:28 am

    xXx – Thank you for realizing how awesome and right I am. And yes, wiggers are horrible people as well.

  52. hateme?on 28 Jul 2010 at 3:48 pm

    I just Googled dreadlock shampoo and i found this really cool website. This thread and perhaps entire website is made for those who wish to harass and discriminate. I’m white. I have dreads. Like most of you, I’m not fond of hippies or wiggers either. I’m a pre-med student. I wash them every other day and get compliments where i work at Wal-Mart and the hospital. For the fans of this website – you may need a minute for this information to sink in.

    Whoever the admin is hiding behind “# You Just Made My List!” has some issues of their own to address. Maybe you should start worrying about yourself eh?

    I hope that you can find peace, maybe when your dead.

    Only God can judge me.

  53. You Just Made My List!on 28 Jul 2010 at 5:53 pm

    Hateme? – You think I don’t know I have issues? Jesus Christ, read the rest of the site, I obviously have issues!

    (My main issue is being more awesome than most people)


  54. LoLon 20 Aug 2010 at 11:38 pm

    Ha ha, typical bigot redneck statements. Im growing my hair at the moment, not because im a hippy or whatever other derogatory names you give dreadlocks, but because I like the look of them . Really does it matter what race, religion ect. you are? Just to get dreads?

    ….For a second their I thought we lived in a free society.

    Mike, with love from Australia! 😀

  55. You Just Made My List!on 21 Aug 2010 at 3:08 pm

    LoL – You see, there’s where you are wrong… Yes, it does matter what race you are if you want dreadlocks. White people look like assholes with dreads. You’re welcome.

  56. whiterastadouchebagon 25 Aug 2010 at 4:14 am

    @ xXx (closet racist)
    Almost anyone can have natural dreads. Also white people can be Rastafari too. Its not a religion but an ideology that anyone of any race can follow. Thirdly, just because we dont say anything doesnt mean the rest of the world isnt laughing their asses off at black “gangsters”. Seriously, most of them can even speak a whole language. So take your bastard english and fuck off homie.

    I’ve never read so much horseshit in all my life, locks are born not made, the making of locks as fashion is only a recent embodiement of vanity and has absolutly no cultural significance what so ever, black, white or brindle.

  58. Beauon 28 Aug 2010 at 6:54 pm

    PS, anyone who claims to have a cultural connection to dreadlocks that have gone and ‘made’ themselves dreads is deluding themselves and lying to others.

    Only black white or brindle skined persons who have true natural freeform dreads have a true root of culture as it is usually based on a vow.

    And its got nothing to do with Rasta, Rasta is based on the nazarite religion and the vow of not letting a blade touch a hair on the head and to let the hair grow as it naturally does.

    ffs no one owns a hairstyle or a religion.

    I want to thank the author of this blog for helping me decide to grow dreadlocks. Honestly, I was on the fence about it but now I realize I can annoy schmucks like him… Personally, I think dreads have a nice aesthetic. I think several of the claims being made here demonstrate how badly educated some people are. For example, White people who wear dreads are appropriating culture while the black people who wear them aren’t, even though Rastas are mostly of West African descent, from Senegal Ghana Nigeria Sierra Leone and so on while their dreads come from the Mau Mau who were revolutionaries in Kenya a mere 3000 miles away. Hey, Africa is just one big country right? The next hilarious claim is that cultural appropriation is wrong or bad. The US is a giant alter to cultural appropriation, as is a large portion of recorded human history. It’s called cultural diffusion and if I find something about a foreign culture attractive your bitching about it makes you an asshole not me. and finally, there are about a dozen other cultures that I could name, without much effort, that utilize dreads. Dreads are way older than the sub-centenarian history of Rastafarianism. So take your own advice. Buy a bong, buy some weed, sit down, smoke it. Chill out.

    hey critics! you suckkkkk. go throw up on yourselves. insecure! haha. booo you.

  62. You Just Made My List!on 01 Nov 2010 at 10:22 pm

    Hey, if I throw up on myself is that a good way to start the dreadlock process?

  63. Dubson 15 Nov 2010 at 7:46 pm

    Let me just get this out in the open.
    1. When it’s stated that, “white people have been wearing dreadlocks before black people,” that is false. Black people have been on the earth longer than all other peoples.
    2. Most white people who have dreadlocks use it as an excuse to listen to Bob Marley (there are other Reggae artists you know) and smoke weed. Not cool.
    3. Most white people that I’ve met with dreadlocks (all over this country and the world) have them just because they think that it’s cool. They say that they have pride in their hair, but just in the idea of it.
    4. It’s hair also, take care of it. Just because it’s all natural doesn’t mean that it can’t look presentable. Don’t have your hair look like you just got out of bed all of the time. You’re giving a bad name and rep to the black people who are trying to get by in this world with dreadlocks.

  64. JAM420on 29 Nov 2010 at 7:42 am

    Its sad seeing people who bitch about something they havent got the first clue about. I mean sure, I agree I don’t want some smelly guy around my cinnabun but hippies and people with dreads aren’t all smelly and disgusting. Whats disgusting is you people believing stereotypes. I am planning on getting dreads and I also plan to wash my hair and stay clean. Leaving your hair to dread naturally takes ages and is done by very few people (mainly done by people with religious views). Dreadlocks can be and are supposed to be washed just as often as any other type of hair otherwise they get very uncomfortable. If your gona complain about something at least get your facts right first.

  65. You Just Made My List!on 29 Nov 2010 at 8:39 am

    Jam420 – I get it… “jam” like shitty jam bands and “420” like pot. Cool bro.

    My facts are dead on.

    FACT: Hippies smell

    FACT: Hippies are annoying

    FACT: White people with dreadlocks are fucking attention-seeking losers who care more about their appearance than the boys on Jersey Shore.

  66. shannonon 01 Dec 2010 at 8:04 pm

    this is horrible. dreads are beautiful on anyone, they have been around since the dawn of time. im not a christian, but john the baptist himself wore them

  67. You Just Made My List!on 01 Dec 2010 at 10:36 pm

    Shannon – I agree, white people with dreads are horrible! Thanks.

  68. Dubson 02 Dec 2010 at 8:55 pm

    BTW JAM420, I have locs down to my shoulders.

  69. Bretton 11 Jan 2011 at 3:49 pm

    anyone that judges people from their hairstyle is obviously not too bright. There are plenty of wonderful white and black people with dreads

  70. You Just Made My List!on 11 Jan 2011 at 5:28 pm

    I agree, there are plenty of wonderful black people with dreads.

  71. Jackon 11 Jan 2011 at 7:55 pm

    Man, i dont’ like this. This is wrong no matter how you argue it Mr. (you just made my list). Your stereotyping and judging people. Who are you to be so bold as to think you know a person based upon their hair. It is the same as judging someone on their clothes or even their skin (even though you would say that is not their choice). Sure it isn’t but there is one extremely important thing your forgeting, diversity is the spice of life. Imagine if everyone was like you…..i don’t know you and i don’t assume to know you and i think this is appropriate. You have been through many things in your life, life guides us all in different directions you didnt find the path towards ever wearing you hair in the style of dreadlocks. But think back my friend have you ever been criticized for anything in you life and resented those people for doing it. The important thing to remember is that ALTHOUGH diversity is the best thing about this world of ours it also is the source of the most conflict. Think of every group in this world that conflicts with other groups that may be polar opposites of themselves. I’m talking about Catholics and Muslims. Black and Whites. Conservatives and Liberals. That is what its all about. And i think the only thing wrong about any of these groups is the hate they spew at each other. Similar to the hate you throw so carelessly at people you truly don’t know because you dont have a map of their lives. If you be so bold…. how about you post a picture of yourself on this website and invite our opinions of you in return. Or do you not dare to be as bold as those punks who wear their hairstyle so freely. Hey its only fair. And already before i see you my opinion of you is that you are fearfull. Not fearfull of putting a picture up, thats not what im talking about im talking about, i am talking about your fear of things that are not with-in you comfort zone. You know freedom from fear is liberating. Maybe those dread-heads are free and thats what your afraid of.

  72. You Just Made My List!on 11 Jan 2011 at 8:11 pm

    Jack – I read about 2 sentences before falling asleep. I’m going to try and read one sentence a day for the next several weeks, and then I’ll get back to you.

  73. Jackon 11 Jan 2011 at 8:53 pm

    i think thats just a way of trying to put off the main point….you putting up a picture of yourself for us to judge for ourselves. Your not even arguing with logic any more, your just throwing slurs around to everone. your view of life is a funny one.

  74. Chrison 17 Jan 2011 at 1:06 pm

    Wow, I can safely say that in my experience white people with dreadlocks are far less ignorant, judgmental and hateful than some of the people commenting here.

    A blog simply for complaining, I feel sorry for you.

  75. You Just Made My List!on 17 Jan 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Awwwww Chris, don’t get tears all over your hacky sack.

  78. Timon 19 Jan 2011 at 12:21 pm

    Prejudice baffles me. You know the expression, “When you point a finger at me there are three more pointing back at you”? Who are you to criticise how other people look? Get excited about global warming or greedy bankers or something important. Peoole’s personal styles are none of your business, my friend.

  79. You Just Made My List!on 19 Jan 2011 at 5:36 pm

  80. boredon 20 Jan 2011 at 4:54 am

    This is getting old now that he can’t even be bothered to put any effort into his replies. He’s just a nasty side effect of the internet generation and this is his escape from his real world, which evedently can’t be a very happy existance if there is so much to complain about.

  81. You Just Made My List!on 20 Jan 2011 at 7:44 am

    bored – Totally bro, right? Like, I should totally listen to some Sublime and just mellow out. Just because I’m a white guy from the suburbs, doesn’t mean I shouldn’t live the island lifestyle, right dude? I mean just because I work at Bed Bath and Beyond it doesn’t mean I can’t feel the spirit of Peter Tosh within my soul.

  82. ethanon 08 Mar 2011 at 3:46 pm

    the most misunderstood hairstyle in this generation.. first off, DREADS NEED TO BE CLEAN TO LOCK. greasy dirty dreadlocks will not lock, they slide apart. hippies and rastas aren’t the only people who lock their hair. many hairstyles such as this are inspired by music, for instance i like metal, so when i headbang and fling my 6 1/2 pound hair towards someone hopefully they will be knocked out. that was a joke. i’ve seen punks with dreadlocks. i also like punk music, the real reason i have dreadlocks is because its a fun hairstyle, and it looks natural in the context of pertaining to nature. i’m not a tree hugger, everybody has their own reason and it doesn’t need to be justified as long as its on their own head. if you criticize something on the outside of me, i will criticize your beliefs. which is a common shortcoming in society. if you believe that killing is wrong then why is putting someone down okay to you, if you say it isn’t wrong to put someone down but it is wrong to kill. then what kind of person are you?

  83. You Just Made My List!on 08 Mar 2011 at 6:09 pm

    I just fell asleep.

  84. wowon 16 Mar 2011 at 8:33 pm

    wow, so much hate on here.
    to the dingleberry guy, you are a bad person.
    seriously, idc what your friend is doing, you put shit in his hair, if you did that to me, i WOULD kill you, and slowly too.
    that’s fucked up.

    all you hate mongers deserve to live a long life full of pain and suffering, I hope you all live forever.

    on topic tho, I agree that MOST white people who get “dreads” do so for a fashion statement and that is wrong, only because they get “dreads” incorrectly, which leads to ppl like you assuming everyone who has dreads is dirty etc.. but those ARE NOT DREADS. Dreads are clean, dreads are natural, dreads require no product or procedure, only patience and acceptance of what is. (along with good hygiene, but you should have that anyway.)

    seriously tho, fuck all of you haters, dreads are what happens naturally, so if you hate dreads, you are basically saying you hate natural processes. I can’t understand how all you bible thumpers can pretend to be so religious when you are really all so near-sighted its almost deserving of pity.

    dreadlocks don’t mean you are rasta, dreads don’t mean you want to be rasta, dreads don’t mean anything besides what you make them mean. To me it means that i am comfortable enough with myself to not give a fuck how my hair looks and to not care about all the noise that the haters will inevitably say. Seriously guys, grow up. I have considered cutting my dreads many times, but honestly I keep them because they act as a filter against all the bullshit people in the world, if someone is going to judge your entire being, simply for your hair, then they do not deserve your time.

  85. You Just Made My List!on 16 Mar 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Yeah, fuck all of you! Wait, what?

  86. Sophiaon 25 Mar 2011 at 8:00 pm

    All of you guys are ignorant assholes.
    Here is a picture of beautiful dreadlocks.

    You’re welcome, bitch.

  87. You Just Made My List!on 27 Mar 2011 at 9:02 am

    Sophia – I like this photo of that girl better.

  88. ACon 28 Mar 2011 at 6:05 pm

    ew, not washing your hair is disgusting, agreed, and those who allow their dreads to form that way is pretty disgusting too. I am white, with dreads, and wash my hair as often as everyone else with different products that disinfect and clean my hair without leaving the nasty residues that shampoo and conditioner leave. My hair may actually be cleaning that all of yours.

  89. shmrdon 10 Apr 2011 at 8:21 pm

    I think that snobbish, close-minded, ignorant articles like this are disgusting . . . and oh-so predictable. When will I ever hear something more original than “dirty hippie” or “dirty dreadlocks”? The last time I heard that one, I fell off my pet dinosaur. Please, folks . . . at least come up with some original slander!

  90. You Just Made My List!on 11 Apr 2011 at 7:57 am

    Shmrd – The last time I heard someone say that they fell off their pet dinosaur, I fell off MY pet dinosaur. Hey, it’s not my fault that hippies are dirty.

  91. mrsjjon 20 Apr 2011 at 12:01 pm

    I am black and indian and pretty much just claim my black side but am proud of the indian in me. My husband is white and my 2 children are obviously biracial. I would never encourage them to dread their beautiful silky curled hair but i have recently started my dread lock journey..i honestly think dreads look disgusting on white people but they can look nasty on anyone especially if too large or not well kept..the problem is MOST white people dont keep their dreads well kept, uniformed, neat, and clean looking..some of the issue is that their hair texture wasnt meant for dreads in the first place so neglect is one of the main ways to help them form their locks oppose to the way we can form ours…for me dreads was my only options and freedom away from breakage, chemicals, damage, and slow growth..i dont think all white people with dreads are hippies but its the way they present themselves..id NEVER let my husband dread his hair not that he would anyway- he s a business man and im SURE he’d be magically jobless if he walked into his office with anything other than maintained well groomed appropriate hair

  92. MRYon 01 May 2011 at 6:15 pm

    It’s assholes like this guy that contribute to the BS stereotypes about dreads. If dreads are by definition disgusting, then so is hair, because dreads are just hair. If they’re born out of neglect then I tend to agree that they look like crap, but they aren’t always made from neglect. And yeah dreads smell if you don’t wash them. Guess what else? Undreaded hair also smells when you don’t wash it, dumb ass. You can wash dreads and anyone who has dreads and never washes them is just nasty. It’s hair. Why would you think it can’t be washed? Are you honestly stupid enough that you aren’t capable of washing hair when it’s dreaded? And if you think hippies are the only white people with dreads then this is just one more example of your complete ignorance.

    You’re whining about people with dreads being douche bags and yet you’re the one saying you hate people because of their hair style. Moron.

  93. You Just Made My List!on 01 May 2011 at 6:25 pm

    MRY – I’m sorry, I fell asleep after “It’s assholes like…” I had a long day of intense hacky sack-ing and I’m bushed. I’m assuming you were going to say something like “It’s assholes like me who think they look cool in dreadlocks.”

  94. HIPPIE.on 16 May 2011 at 11:34 pm

    The majority of you people here need to take a seat, get some mushrooms, and relax. Maybe you’ll stop being so ignorant.

  95. garretton 17 Aug 2011 at 5:51 pm

    i can’t believe the ignorance and intolerance portrayed in this post / in the comments. i don’t personally have dread locks, but any of my friends that do have them certainly don’t have them to attract attention or be different. it’s just how they like their hair. no one is saying that you have to like it, but couldn’t you at least be a little more accepting of other cultures? i mean, it’s only a hairstyle. you have to be some pretty pathetic pissant to get so huffy puffy over something so simple as a hairstyle.

  96. You Just Made My List!on 17 Aug 2011 at 5:57 pm

    Garrett – But wait, aren’t you getting “huffy puffy” over hair too?

    I’m trying to care about what you’re saying but I just can’t make it happen.

  97. Will Andersonon 21 Aug 2011 at 9:31 am

    You are beyond ignorant you stupid biatch! Your blanket condemnation of caucasian people with dreads, is mean-spirited and simplistic and totally meaningless as it does not pan out to a legit social analysis!! I got my dreads by kayaking in the wilderness for weeks at a time… not by being a “hippie” or indulging in hippie culture, I don’t smoke pot or do other drugs or alcohol either, just healthy living and paddling about 14 miles a day. You need to turn off the computer and get out more before pontificating about issues you are completely uninformed about…you ignorant slut!!

  98. You Just Made My List!on 21 Aug 2011 at 12:12 pm

    Man, you really take your dumb hair seriously. You would think an outdoorsy guy like yourself would be far less passionate about his hair. It pretty much proves my point about white people with dreads.

  99. Jackon 06 Sep 2011 at 9:38 pm

    bob marley is half white……yup im back commenting on this site again. was just living in bocas del toro, panama for 8 months where all the rastas accepted me for being white with dreads. i love those guys i feel so fucking lucky that i can escape this stupid country and live where i want. eventually i will be gone for good from here. because of people like you and ideas that have turned this country to shit. good luck everyone. i found freedom. and it aint in the “land of the free”. as a matter of fact you are less free here then in central america take my word for it. life is good. i hope you find peace like me one day boy. then there will be one less person that is making this world worse. and if i ever do have kids they wont have to grow up with people like you that torment them for being as unique as they want. peace brotha……truly

  100. You Just Made My List!on 06 Sep 2011 at 9:50 pm

    Jack – You aren’t as free and easy going as you think if you immediately head back here to complain after your rastacation in Panama. You sound more uptight and angry than me! The first thing you do after a long trip to Panama is check back into a fucking blog to see if anyone is still talking about your hair. What a narcissist!!!

    Yeah, it’s me turning the country to shit. Go smoke another joint and pretend to be “free.”

  101. Jackon 06 Sep 2011 at 10:18 pm

    haha, now theres a good argument. but still, you dont know me man. i am frustrated when i come back thats for sure. using my computer for the first time in a long time i browsed through it and and thought id look through some of the saved websites i had. out of curiousity i looked back on this site to see if you had swayed your mind at all. nope. good to see your so strong minded, this way you will go through your entire life without exploring options. so now all you need to do is look at yourself now and well thats you 40 years down the line. hey man thats exciting improvement. you should be happy at your progress. dont be so concerned about my freedom, im happy where i am. thanks for being so worried for me i sense the human in you. and as for replying well it only took a couple seconds, i do alot with the seconds in my day. you should be happy you have a follower…….shouldnt you? or do you make blogs like this for no particular reason. i mean maybe thats true because a blog is for expressing your opinions and then seeking others. but all i see is your simple repetition. ha, i mean what happens if anything changed in your precious world that your so confident in? the world would change around you, people and things would adapt and youd be the dodo bird that went extinct.

  102. You Just Made My List!on 06 Sep 2011 at 11:03 pm

    Oh my god, you like to ramble. Don’t worry about me and my happiness or ability to explore new things. I just sold everything I own and moved to Hawaii. Man, there are A LOT of whites dudes here with dreads!

  103. Jackon 06 Sep 2011 at 11:16 pm

    enjoy the surf.

  104. Dubson 07 Sep 2011 at 10:35 am

    Hmmm, after a hiatus, I stumbled upon this site again.
    What I want to get clear is in a form of personal experience. It may sound like a generalization but it is my personal truth.

    I’m black and have had locs for about 4.5 years now. All of non-black people that I have seen and known with locs have been annoyingly into Raggae, marijuana centric and believe that locs should not be washed.
    I am not saying that all non-blacks are like that, it just happened so that the people I’ve met have been like that.

    With that said, there is a stigma that has plagued this world that all people with locs are weed smoking rastafarians. This development is not cool, not cool at all.

    This stigma has caused me to be approached by people of all colors asking me to sell them weed.
    This stigma has caused me trouble in the job market. (I have a degree from one of the top schools in the country.)

    In no way am I trying to be racist. I have seen people of all creeds and colors with beautiful locs. I just don’t see the reason why people would accentuate stereotypes.

  105. Ericaon 24 Sep 2011 at 12:55 am

    Dubs, you are a wise man.

    I am a 22-year-old female with locks. I have heard all of these misconceptions, but I think that making any generalization about how black people care for their locks or how white people do it is unbelievably ignorant.
    I will not, however, jump to the conclusion that everyone who posts opinion online is ignorant. See how it works? I have black friends with locks who have put them together with glue and toothpaste. In fact, a black friend of mine does locks for other people this way. I also have black friends with perfectly lovely dreadlocks. I know white people who have created their locks through not washing their hair and I know many white people with very nice locks. How a person’s locks look is in no way related to their skin color.

    Furthermore, hairstyles do not have to have a religious or cultural meaning. I see nothing wrong with people getting a hairstyle because they think it is cool or will make them stand out. This said, there are plenty of black people who get locks just because they think they look cool, just as there are many white people who do this. There is also a third reason why people get a haircut, though: because they like it. I did not get my locks to look cool; I got my locks because I believe that, when handled properly, they are beautiful.

    I am not a hippie. I do not smoke pot and I am not lazy or, by any means, chill. Raggae is nowhere near the top of my list of favorite styles of music. I do not dress like a hippie, I shave and I have a job, home and vehicle as well as good grades. I am also not a racist, which gives me bonus points over some people who have posted on here.

    I know black stereotypical hippies with locks and white ones. I know stereotypical hippies of multiple skin colors without locks. The locks have nothing to do with it.
    My dreads are washed daily without the use of chemicals. They were not created through neglect, but through backcombing, palm-rolling and turning them in on themselves. I am employed and anyone who would not hire me or take me seriously because of my hair has bigger problems than my hair will ever pose for me.
    Also, nailing people on grammar only works if you do not have any grammatical errors. Think about it (fragment.)

    I am not trying to start a fight. I will forget all about this and rest easy with my locks. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, I just believe that bashing a whole group of people based on something you cannot possibly understand or know to be true is wrong. Thank you.

  106. You Just Made My List!on 24 Sep 2011 at 1:29 pm

    Erica – WOW! You REALLY care about your dumb hair. You just wasted 468 words trying to have a serious discussion about your hairstyle. Maybe you SHOULD smoke some pot and loosen up a bit.

  107. Dubson 27 Sep 2011 at 12:26 pm

    I have a few questions.
    Why do people make dreadlocks a counter-culture?
    It could just been seen as another hairstyle.
    Why does it have to be associated with piercings and hair beads.
    Also, since so many people say that dreadlocks have been around since before Bob Marley (I know this to be true) then why do those same people associated and spout off ideas of “one-love?”
    Be true to yourself.
    A hairstyle identifies you but it doesn’t make your identity.

  108. Danielon 24 Oct 2011 at 12:15 am

    Who ever wrote this blog has no idea how to lock, maintain, and clean dreads. Your probably white, soooo Im guessing you really haven’t done much w your hair but straighten and/or tied it up in a ponytail if its not out.
    Exactly. Thats the beauty of African hair. The possibilities are endless due to the texture of our hair. Its hard for you to understand how dreads are even possible. I get approached by people everyday asking me how I got them done.

    Lets me teach your ignorant self what dreads really mean:
    The very definition of dreadlocks is not “filth”, rather symbolized devotion by the Ethiopian Orthodox monks living hundreds of years ago. The rastafarian belief adopted this habit from us.
    I have dreadlocks, ok. And I maintain and clean them very often, just like any other type of hair style. So watch your mouth when you generalize.

  109. You Just Made My List!on 24 Oct 2011 at 3:48 am

    Hey jackass, I’m talking about WHITE people with dreads, not people with “African” hair. Learn to read before you start ranting.

  110. stanon 27 Nov 2011 at 5:27 am

    It’s clear that the person who wrote this blog has absolutely no clue about what he’s talking about. It’s actually even funny how dumb you are. Evertime someone gives you a decent arguent you just start talking about the grammar or something else that has nothing to do with the argument. First of all, if you don’t know what you’re talking about, don’t talk about it. and if you do, listen to the people who do know what they’re talking about and don’t just talk their arguments away with stupid remarks about irrelevant things

  111. You Just Made My List!on 27 Nov 2011 at 8:09 pm

    Stan – Sure, I’d be happy to point out the errors in your comment.

    • You start by referring to me as “the person” and then in the next sentence you refer to me as “you.” Your second sentence should have read “It’s actually even funny how dumb HE IS.” In fact, the use of “even” right after “really” sounds very awkward, so I would go with, “It’s actually funny how dumb he is.”

    • Your third sentence is perhaps your most tragic. It’s clumsy and contains no less than two misspelled words, “evertime” and “arguent.”

    • I take that back, sentence five is your most egregious abuse of the English language. You started the sentence with a lowercase “and.” Really? Additionally, the comma after “do” makes absolutely no sense at all and the words that follow are scattered all over the place like the aftermath of a train wreck!

    Have you seen the classic movie “Vacation” from 1993? Holy shit, it is still so good! I just watched it for the one billionth time and I still laughed just as hard as I did the first time I saw it. Chevy Chase’s performance is nothing short of brilliant and there’s no reason a comedic actor shouldn’t be nominated for an Academy Award®.

  112. stanon 05 Dec 2011 at 4:53 am

    you just make me laugh :) i know i make mistakes i am not english and you just proved that you really don’t know what you’re talking about if you would you would bring up decent arguments and not just correct my mistakes.

  113. You Just Made My List!on 05 Dec 2011 at 12:24 pm

    Dear Stan,

    I meant to write you sooner
    But I’ve just been busy
    You said your girlfriend’s pregnant now
    How far along is she?
    Look I’m really flattered
    You would call your daughter that
    And here’s an autograph for your brother
    I wrote it on your starter cap

    I’m sorry I didn’t see you at the show
    I must have missed you
    Don’t think I did that shit intentionally
    Just to diss you
    And what’s this shit you said about
    You like to cut your wrist too?
    I say that shit just clownin’ dawg
    C’mon, how fucked up is you?

    You got some issues Stan
    I think you need some counselin”
    To help your ass from bouncin’ off the walls
    When you get down some
    And what’s this shit about us
    Meant to be together?
    That type of shit’ll make me not want us
    To meet each other

    I really think you and your girlfriend
    Need each other
    Or maybe you just need to treat her better
    I hope you get to read this letter
    I just hope it reaches you in time
    Before you hurt yourself
    I think that you’ll be doin’ just fine
    If you’d relax a little

    I’m glad I inspire you
    But Stan, why are you so mad?
    Try to understand
    That I do want you as a fan
    I just don’t want you to do some crazy shit
    I seen this one shit on the news
    A couple weeks ago that made me sick

    Some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge
    And had his girlfriend in the trunk
    And she was pregnant with his kid
    And in the car they found a tape
    But it didn’t say who it was to?
    Come to think about it
    His name was, it was you! Damn!

    Some white people can pull it off well though. The 4 people I always thought pull/pulled the dreads style off well are Corey Taylor of Slipknot (during the band’s early days his real dreads were pulled out of the top of his mask), Jonathan Davis of Korn, Zoltan Bathory of Five Finger Death Punch, and of course one of the longest dreads of today, Brian Fair of Shadows Fall (his are now over 4 feet long).

  115. Trudyon 29 Dec 2011 at 1:16 pm

    Well I’m a black woman and I personally think it looks hot on white guys, but the thing with dreads is that not everyone can pull it off i don’t think it has to do with being white or black because there are a few black people even who just look horrible with dreads. So on white people it can be just as hot. http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lw3l4uDBL81r5r0sno1_500.jpg If you look at the picture he is a great example of how hot white people can be with dreads

    @You Just Made My List.

    I am a black woman, and I actually like your comments. Not because I don’t like white people with Locks, because I do. I like anyone with Locks, or any other kind of hairstyle. I like that you started this blog, and now we really get to see how secure or insecure people are with themselves. How many bigots we actually encounter daily and don’t even know it. You Just MML. I’m giving you your props. And I love everybody. You made your opinion, (you don’t like white people with dreads). I’m sure you’ve come in contact with some who have them that are neat and clean, and maybe your criticism of them is less harsh. But your opinion of them is just yours. What gets me is how angry people are getting because your philosopy is different from theirs. Which makes me think, if they truly they have their locked, your opinion wouldn’t matter. Things that make you say hhmm. I love how you bought out all the hypocrites. You know the one that had to point out they are married to a black man, and his family encouraged the dreadlocks. Or the one that made a point that she would never encourage her Golden Haired children to lock their hair, and the ” I won’t allow my husband to lock his”. If I could TELL my man what he could and couldn’t do, I don’t think that’s much of a man.
    They all have something to prove, and it’s to themselves.
    Even the post that pointed out every culture he could think of was enlightening. It was hilarious. Sounded like a skit for Saturday Night Live. YJMML, I hope I didnt bore you with this long drawn out post. But keep doing what you do. All you did was prove to the hypocrites that everyone has an opinion. Peace

    Sure thing Kenny, good luck with that.

  122. No bodyon 18 Feb 2012 at 12:29 pm

    Assuming that all white people with dreadlocks are trying to be ‘hippies’ or ‘rastafarians’ is so stupid I don’t even think there is any point trying to explain to you the hundreds of cultures that have adopted dreadlocks, the different ways you can create and maintain them, and how thick you sound.

    For the record, I am a white female, with dreadlocks. I wash them twice a week, take care of them and ensure they don’t smell. I made them with small amounts of back combing and separating each day, WHILST still washing. I am not a hippie, nor am I a rasta, nor do I think I look cool. My natural hair is far too curly for me to cope with, and my hair is now much much more manageable. If one more person assumes I am a rasta/have drugs on me, I am going to scream. Living in a world where I feel hated and belittled because of my hair… It’s disgusting. Dirty smelly elitist

  123. Morganon 24 Feb 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Sounds like racism to me. Haile Selassie I.

  124. You Just Made My List!on 24 Feb 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Sounds annoying to me. Holy salami!

  125. Morganon 24 Feb 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Dreadlocks (Jata in India) are associated most closely with the Rastafari movement, but people from many ethnic/religious groups in history BEFORE them have worn dreadlocks, including many ancient Semitic (Jewish) and Indo-Aryan (white) peoples of the Near East and Asia Minor, early Scottish clans, Sadhus of Nepal, India and the Sufi Rafaees, the Maori people of New Zealand, the Maasai of East Africa, and the Sufi malangs and fakirs of Pakistan.
    Dreads/Jatas are worn not only by Rasta (which comes from Ras Tafari later known as Haile Selassie the first true king of Ethiopia) but Buddhists, Hindu, and Islam. Also several mummies in ancient Egypt have been found with dreadlocks/jatas as they were a common practice in that time as well. Scottish Clan warriors also wore dreadlocks/jatas and if I’m not mistaken they are predominately white people.
    It is not only a religious standpoint like in Rastafari as in other cultures.
    So let’s see here holy men, healers, warriors, and royalty, all of which would take great means to keep them clean, and in most cases there were regular rituals to keep them clean and kept. Sounds to me as if dreadlocks/jatas are a commonly seen historical sign of stature. Used by those loved by all people of their lands. I see it as a sign of purity, strength, power, respect, and honor, as do most cultures ancient and current.
    If you don’t like them don’t grow them, but to disrespect so many cultures and people you have never met or will never meet is more disgusting than even the dirtiest of SHITLOCK! (which is drastically different than a dreadlock)

    Haha, your natural hair is too curly to cope with.
    Why don’t you just straighten it like most black women do.

    I understand your history because it is correct.
    What I don’t understand is your last minute semi-retort.
    It boarders on horrific.
    What are you trying to prove.

    @You Just Made My List
    You have to stay strong.
    I know that it’s tough being surrounded by so many ignorant people.
    They pretend to open their hearts, but if a black person with locs walked down the street, they would avoid them out of fear.
    Hypocrites assemble!

  128. Morganon 06 Mar 2012 at 3:52 am

    The clever last minute retort would be a result of Mr. Lists lame ass holy salami comment while I was typing my explanation, had he actually said something of substance he would have received something of substance. I know my history is correct I’m an anthropology major and am writing my dissertation had a lot of information on the subject come up, and I’m a locked white boy myself, but thanks for the reassurance. Mr. List is an idiot, I’m all for having a standpoint and defending it but ignorance is not a defense.

  129. You Just Made My List!on 06 Mar 2012 at 12:54 pm

    Morgan – “I know my history is correct I’m an anthropology major.” Classic! I remember when I was your age and thought I knew everything. Luckily when I was your age I wasn’t running around with a dirty mop on my head. Cut your hair and go play some golf.

    mindless research .I just cant stand close minded people ,but after reading over the coments I have figured you just need to voice your opinion.

  140. Jayon 22 May 2012 at 9:15 am

    so many ignorant people posting about dreadlock..
    If you havnt had them or got them then your speculating!

    There are plenty of short haired stinky people out there, in fact more so!! people with short hair think oh well its short so i dont gotta wash it. If you wanna go the stereotypes route ill tell you that 90% of people i have meat with shaved heads smell like crud! ..bam!! there it is!

    Just to aid your ignorance, to have dreadlocks you need clean hair! if it aint clean (ie greasy) it will not knot up.
    Your hair has to be squeaky clean.

    I wash mine every 2 days which is probably more then some of you haterz!

    Seriously, just coz a handful of folks with dreads smell does not mean its because of the dreads.. its just because you notice them more because they have dreads..
    Next time your in a que or on a bus take a look around and a real good sniff, do these stinkers had dreads.. no!
    They are just lazy stinkerz that need personal hygiene lessons.
    Also take time out to smell yourself guys, coz i bet half of you who are hating on dreads smell like a chedder factory!!


  141. You Just Made My List!on 22 May 2012 at 12:48 pm

    Jay – You write like an fucking idiot… BAM, there it is!

    If you ever want anyone to take you seriously in this world, you need to learn how to communicate properly. You will obviously ignore this advice but you shouldn’t.

  142. Michaelon 12 Jun 2012 at 12:04 pm

    you guys are all terrible. i don’t have dreads, nor would i ever have them. I would never talk about how much i hate someone just because of their hair though. If anybody is a stupid dick, its all of you judgmental cunts. i hope you all get cancer

  143. Michaelon 12 Jun 2012 at 12:31 pm

    come at me. go ahead and correct my grammar, or post Eminem lyrics that are completely irrelevant. the fact is that i hate obnoxious hippies too, but you are much worse than them.

  144. Michaelon 12 Jun 2012 at 12:35 pm

    and since i won’t know if you replied to me because i don’t really do this shit, i want you to know that you make yourself sound like more of an idiot everytime you try to prove somebody wrong. im sure you’ll do the same with me.

  145. You Just Made My List!on 12 Jun 2012 at 1:37 pm

    Michael – The rest of us are horrible but you wish cancer on people? Idiot. By the way, I know you are reading this. I mean, you spent a half of an hour checking back and commenting last night, so you’ll be back.

    I have to say I have never, ever, ever in my whole life seen a white person with dreadlocks that looked good. Stereotypes aside, they just look like shit to me. I just think it looks better on black people. Yeah history tells us that Celts, Vikings etc has dreads but hey it probably looked shit on them too.

  148. No.on 22 Sep 2012 at 1:59 pm

    I REJECT DREADLOCKS on ANYONE – black or white.
    I will not do business with anyone with dog turds on their head.
    I will not BUY anything from someone with rotten hot dogs on their head.
    I would never HIRE anyone with stringy hair wads on their head.
    Call me RACIST, dumb, old fashioned, UNREASONABLE, whatever you wish, I will not now or ever, change my viewpoint on those nasty things.
    They make me want to throw up!
    My grandson started growing them and I told him they were NOT ACCEPTABLE in my house, so he moved out.
    That was HIS choice, leaving a warm, comfortable home with running water, a shower and toilet….for the ‘freedom’ to grow rotten sausages on his head and live in one room with no running water!
    That’s HIS choice.
    I don’t intend to see him until he ‘wises up’ and joins the normal people again.
    Actually, I’d like to hold him down and shave them off…..
    Those of you who like them….ARE SICK! They are disgusting.

    Sigh, such judgemental people like yourselves make me sad. There are the people who choose to “naturally” get dreads by not washing their hair…that is their choose but there are the people like me who choose to shampoo and clean our dreads. I bathe…my dreads smell gasp just like your hair does!

  153. Ruion 31 Oct 2012 at 3:15 pm

    Yes because the rasta and hippies are rotting up society. Making protests aginst the vietnam war, trying to legalize weed, spreading a message of non-violence, peace and understanding.

    ALL WE NEED is more single moms living on taxes because their husband died in war, fighting for some stupid reason.

    ALL WE NEED is to make babies and hate gays.

    ALL WE NEED is to destroy nature in order to have a better cell phone that can log in to the web 3 times faster.

    ALL WE NEED is to like popular culture and do what the President tells us, because he allways knows best. Unless he is a democrat, or black, or a woman and if the president is democratic black woman, America should be bombed because it will no longer be a country.

    ALL WE NEED is to spend tax payer’s money fighting the legalization and use of a plant that had been smoked for around 5000 years before it was crime. (Btw, maybe you should revoke Jefferson’s and Washington’s presidency because they smoked it, and maybe you shouldn’t have written the constitution on a piece of Hemp Paper – Makes you look a little contadictory).

    ANYWAY, the main point is that we should obviously kill and erradicate all people who, in some way, look at life in a different way or decided to stay away from common habits – THEY’RE ALL FREAKS.

    wow i cant belive how a hairstyle can upset so many people smdh. its just a hairstyle. if someone chooses to wear it its their decision. how is it bothering you? how is what someone does with their hair harming you? now dont get me wrong some white people dont look good with locs. but some black people dont either. but is it my problem? no. do i really care? hell no! im a black women with locs (i prefersaying loc instead of dreads b/c my loc are noe dreadful) myself and i choose to start locs because its healthy for my hair. but i just feel you should judge people just on looks alone. but its your opinion and i respect that

  158. dreaddivaon 03 Feb 2013 at 7:28 pm

    i ment shouldnt judge people just on looks alone. (lol my bad )

  159. Noneon 01 Mar 2013 at 4:49 am

    This truly is Level 90 Trolling here. I would suggest that you need to be a bit more holistic in your replies though, being a white man doesn’t give you a pass for being racist towards white people.
    Also, the way you backpedal whenever a black person calls you out makes you look like a pussy who has no conviction. If you’re going to create a blog demonstrating your ugly contempt for things you don’t understand, don’t do it by halves.

    BTW I’m black, not a hippy and have never heard of Sublime. Ras Tafari, bless.

    Lmfao….holy shit it was great reading these comments. I love when they try to justify locks’ by talking about white people of ancient times as if they had a personal connection to them…You tools aren’t Vikings or Egyptian mummies…YOU LOOK STUPID..take a bath, get a haircut…and yes I am ignorant, and I will continue to joyfully mock you wannabes when I see you in public.

  162. LionHearton 07 Sep 2013 at 10:20 pm

    In MY OPINION, dreads on white people look fuckin ridiculous. They look like big logs of greasy shit hangin off your head. And I’m talkin WHITE people….. trendy and stupid looking. But hey, if white kids WANT their hair to look like the underbelly of a sick stray dog, go for it!!!

  163. Amyon 07 Apr 2014 at 11:54 am

    First of all,why are you so racist? what have white people done to you? Im mexican and I have a black boyfriend.I retwist his dreads all the time.He takes 3 showers everyday.His dreads stay clean.I see no difference between hair color or skin color. You are a sterotyper. Skin color doesnt define whether someone is clean or not. Please educate yourself by visting this on how to wash dreads (http://www.ehow.com/how_17123_wash-dreadlocks.html)

  165. jessicaon 17 Jun 2014 at 5:15 pm

    You are a fucking idiot. What an ignorant thing to say. My husband is white and has dreadlocks . For one he washes his hair, showers daily. He smells great pretty much all the time. Dreadlocks have a deeper meaning for most people like you said rastas. And if anyone else in the world regardless of skin color starts dreading their hair it’s their God given right to do so. Dreads are not a “black hairstyle” if it was then white people and the like hair would not lock naturally. I’m sure there’s tons of potheads out there (like the one you described) who give authentic dreadheads a bad image . But everyone is different and judging something you know nothing about is just straight up ignorant. Now go do your research you greasy short haired fuck.

  166. jessicaon 17 Jun 2014 at 5:23 pm

    Brushed straight hair is boring as hell anyhow. Nobody wants to be truly different since it comes with too much judgement. Perfect example this dumbass blog and the airheads that agree.

  167. You Just Made My List!on 17 Jun 2014 at 5:30 pm

    Jessica – But I LOVE to judge things without knowing anything about them! Please don’t take that away from me. Research? Really? I have to research dirty white people hair? God, that sounds so boring. Where do I even start? The library? Do libraries even exist anymore? I googled “white people with dreadlocks” and found a great article on the subject. Unfortunately half way through reading the article I realized I was on my own website, reading my own brilliant words.

    I will do my best to research this subject as soon as I’m done being productive. You see, I have a job, unlike your husband. Before you say “Fuck you, my husband has a job,” keep in mind jobs at bong factories and Tibetan pillow stores don’t count.

    Best of luck. Sounds like the deeper meaning you get from your husband’s hair doesn’t include spiritual qualities like forgiving others or being kind to thine enemy. Maybe you should try listening to the lyrics of your “Best of Bob Marley” CD sometime.

  168. You Just Made My List!on 17 Jun 2014 at 5:49 pm

    You hear that all you “brushed hair” people? You are boring as hell! So says the judgmental hippie.

    God, I hate hippies.

  169. jay84on 04 Aug 2014 at 2:24 am

    Ok so yes some people on each side are ignorant on the subject. While I do agree that white people(the majority) do look terrible with dreads. I am not against them either. I myself am a white Christian with long hair I have had dreads in the past and just didn’t like them. But as far as world wide culture goes it hasnt been until the last 200 years that the modern “clean cut” look even came to be the norm. The few people that get upset enough to rant about im not like that we’re probably not talking about you. I just moved back from Washington state and yes the majority especially in olympia are dirty nasty hippies and that is the problem. Not the clean hippies that have their own businesses and contribute to society. But in the end more than anything else people both left and right, christian and atheist, rich and poor, the majority suck.
    Ps look how old this board is people really can rant over the most trivial things
