Those who rub with sand they woud then wash it off by standind and shakin dem heads unders waterfalls. Otherwise waterfalls were known for de purpose of washin locked hair.

Were those comes from Incient time?
I thought we never had anything to straighten our hair in Incient of days.

Give thanks for the Intribution because I always wonder how some could get thick locks if their hair did grow naturally into locks instead of those big locks which are more likely to grow if one's hair is untouched.

They were from over 6000 years ago, predynastic kemet. Seen?

We have always had the tools..... who mentioned anything about straightening though? I imagine most of the above would be used as pick-combs for braid twist lock cornrows plaits kind of style. We see all kinds of hairstyle on the ancients as we do today.......

The idea of the ancients living primitive with not even the basic of tools is a racist European lie

To answer the question, it originate on yo head. plain and simple.

More complicated, people started liking this locks but can not wait long enough for it to grow so they make artifitial dreadlocks hairstyles and so it became a fashion.

One should not forget that Dread-Locks originated from God the first Dread
