ohheyitsshanaj asked: Dreadlocks (or similar styles) have also been traced back to Vikings, Greeks, and Nordic people, long before the African slave trade. Dreads do not belong to African cultures.
I’m not saying that they belong to African cultures. I’m saying that dread locks (thus named by enslaved African cultures) have a cultural significance to cultures of Africans that were formerly enslaved. For example, henna is from the henna plant and the plant itself doesn’t belong to any culture, but how it is used (an aspect of the plant), and the cultural significance it has is what makes that aspect of henna belong to a particular culture.
Do you even know where the term dreadlocks comes from?
My point: anyone can have matted hair, but an aspect of matted hair has cultural significance to a particular culture and that aspect is called “dreadlocks”.
Call another aspect of matted hair something else.
This needs more notes.
