Early morning ponderings after a double shift:

Really random question: Do you think think that dreads were popular "back in the day" due to the fact that its an "easy" hair style to do (Well, its actually a lot of work, but I mean, if you leave your hair alone for a week or two, you got a set going), or do you think that its always been as "taboo" as it is?

Okay, admittedly, society is getting more accepting of the strange things we usually-under-40-set like to do to ourselves, what with pink hair, mohawks, tattoos and such, but dreads have been around for forever, and people still give dirty looks/are undereducated about cleaniliness behind them.

Now, this question clearly doesn't relate to many cultures and countries such as Jamica, but it's been something that has been on my mind for a while now, and I didnt recall coming across a question like it in the memories.
