When Delilah cut off his seven locks of hair Sampson lost his incredible strength. Dreadlocks are often traced back to Hinduism and the Lord God Shiva. However most people recognize that dreadlocks have their origin in Africa.. Throughout history dreadlocks were commonly worn by spiritual healers. Many Pharaohs had locked hair. King Tutankhamen's mummy still has visibly intact dreadlocks. Nowadays Dreadlocks are worn as a fashion statement, a political message, or as a way of rebelling.
