heya shandroid...you are ridiculous! to each his own! rastafarianism is a beautiful religion, do some research.

The Rastafarians wear locks as an expression of inner spirituality and to emphasize their identity. Their religion states that they must remain "whole". Following Haile Selassie, cutting dreads is highly prohibited in the Rasta culture. Due to this, dreads knot naturally because their hair is not to be tampered with.

@passin thru: Yeah, highly educated individual here with great reading ability. Did you know that Rasta was "created" as an F you to Christian missionaries who were trying to "force" Christianity down Jamaicans throats? Did you also know that this ridiculousness is based on worshipping some royal guy picked out of the ether by some other regular Jamaican guy and called a messiah? It's just a bunch of total bunk! They pick and choose stuff from the Bible to believe in. They WANT to get high off of mary jane, something Jamaicans have done for years, so lets decide to make it a "holy herb" so it can be a religious thing to do. Get real!

There is nothing "beautiful" about Rastafarianism. It's all based on a bunch of bunk and yet another cult to lump into the rest of the cults.

Chill people it's all good. Actually dread locks do not smell. I've had them for years and I wash mine every day and oil them and I'm always complemented on how good they smell. They're also not heavy depending on your hair texture as most people of African descent have kinky hair which is very light (if you've ever touched an afro you would see we can have a lot of hair and it weighs next to nothing).
I never get mad though when people think they smell or think they're heavy. Most people in the world, even West Indian people do not have dreadlocks or don't know anyone with dreadlocks so they have no idea what they feel like or smell like.
It's a common misconception that dreads smell bad, I don't think anyone was trying to be mean by expressing that opinion. And there are those sad few who do not care for their dreads well and end up with a smelly mess, of course you ALWAYS notice when there's a smelly person next to you. Those people could never achieve the length and uniformity that Damian's dreads have achieved. But remember there are people with straight hair or relaxed hair or "white" hair (whatever that means) or Asian hair who just don't take care of their hygiene and they have matted or oily or falling out (B. Spears anybody?) hair. Those are just an unfortunate few though. The same goes for dreads, it's just hair and its beauty comes from how you take care of it.
