Dreadlocks are rope-like clumps of matted or braided hair. The hairstyle is also known as locs, or dreads, may be achieved through various methods such as backcombing, rolling, or braiding.
People wear dreadlocks for several incentives. There are religious, spiritual, political, cultural, and ethnic reasons to wear them. The emergence of reggae music in the 1970s made dreadlocks one of the most desired hairstyles in modern times. The rise of the Rastafarian movement was responsible for the hype on dreads, and musicians, actors, rappers, and athletes sported the look mostly for stylish reasons.
The fashion and hair salon industries strengthened the uproar even further by contributing hair care products specially formulated for the care and sustenance of dreadlocks. Hair stylists also came up with a variation of artificial and modified locks which include extensions and multi-colored synthetic ones.
When styling your locs, it’s important to think about your edges. As your locs get longer (and in turn heavier), this will put more tension on your hair and your delicate edges can be at risk, especially if your locs are styled too tightly.
Here are some of best Locs Hairstyles collection of 2021.
