Dreadlocks, also locs, dreads, or in Sanskrit, Jaṭā, are ropelike strands of hair formed by or braiding hair. Dreadlocks can also be formed through a technique called "twist and rip", as well as backcombing and rolling. While leaving hair to its own devices – forgoing brushing, combing or cutting the hair, also known as the "neglect" technique and "free forming" – will generally result in tangles and mats, the formation of evenly sized dreadlocks takes planning and maintenance.
