Head cases: Dreadlock theft on the rise in South Africa
"Thieves in South Africa have taken to snipping off unsuspecting peoples' dreadlocks, lured by a rich demand and steep rewards." According to the Johannesburg Times Live, South Africans and visitors to the capital who sport dreadlocks would be wise to guard their mane, as thieves have been chopping off the dreads of unsuspecting people and selling them on the black market for as much as $300 for a long set. - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
That is so messed up. Reminds me of the bit in "Good Hair," where they talk about people having their hair stolen in India to make extensions. Not super-common, but still way creepy. - Jennifer Dittrich
Ooh, I never knew I could buy black market hair. Hmmmmmmmm - Amit Patel
Wow. - Janet from FFHound!
Once in a while the newspaper will report on a rash of thefts at beauty salons. They always steal hair extensions. - Betsy
