NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #295 ~ 01-08-22]

The word dreadlocks is a good example. Until the end of the 1950s most Rastas were “beardmen,” but they still cut their hair. Some took to growing uncombed locks, like the Indian saddhus or the Ethiopian guerrillas who took an oath not to cut their hair until Ethiopia was freed from the Italians in the 1930s. Howell himself, his son says, did grow his hair for a short period of time, but did not encourage his adepts to make themselves too conspicuous and subject to victimization. He had only three fierce-looking locksmen guarding Pinnacle; people called them “mountain lions,” like the Ethiopian warriors. It wasn’t until the 1960s that locks became a more common style. 

— Helene Lee, The First Rasta.
