This is probably the most peculiar story I have read this year, thieves have stolen a man’s dreadlocks at a nightclub in Johannesburg….say what? His friends found him passed out……with his head shaven, nothing stolen except his locks. According to the report by News24, human hair extensions are in full demand and very popular at the moment.

Now I don’t know exactly about that, aren’t dreadlocks very filthy and all that? I’ve never had dreads but what I hear – it is such a hassle to keep it clean and intact. Apparently they can go for anything from R200 to R2500….for men and women. Is this now a new type of crime syndicate that will begin? “Give me a dreadlock or I will cut it off by force, don’t make me untangle them???!!!!” That doesn’t sound right does it, but for some it may be a hair raising experience.
