Random information on the term “Dreads”:

Box braids are a type of hair-braiding style that is predominantly popular amongst the African diaspora. This type of hairstyle is best described as “protective style”[clarification needed] and is “boxy”, consisting of square-shaped hair divisions. Box braids are generally done by using synthetic hair to help add thickness as well as helping the real hair in the braid also. Because they are not attached to the scalp like other similar styles such as cornrows, box braids can be styled in a number of different ways. The installation process of box braids can be lengthy, but once installed they can last for 6–8 weeks. They are known for being easy to maintain.

Hair-braiding styles were used to help differentiate tribes, locations, and also possibly a symbol of wealth and power due to the amount of effort that went into styling braids. Box braids were not given a specific name until the 1990s when popularized by a R&B musician Janet Jackson, but have been used for years. This style of braiding comes from the Eembuvi braids of Namibia or the chin-length bob braids of the women of the Nile Valley from over 3,000 years ago. The mothers in the tribes would teach their young daughters how to braid each other’s hair, and this became a social activity for the tribes. In Africa, braid styles and patterns are a way of distinguishing the different tribes, marital status, age, wealth, religion and social ranking. In some countries of Africa, the braids were a form of communication. In some Caribbean islands, braids were used as a way to escape slavery by forming intricate braid patterns that signified a map.[citation needed] To achieve the braids, the tribes would typically use thick layers of finely chopped tree bark and oils to base and uphold the hairstyle. Human hair was at one point wefted into fiber wig caps made of durable materials like wool and felt for reuse in traditional clothing as well as different rituals. Cowry shells, jewels, beads and other material items adorned box braids of older women alluding to their readiness to have daughters, emulation of wealth, high priesthood and any other classifications.
