In Jamaica the term dreadlocks was first recorded in the 1950s as a term for the “Young Black Faith”, an early sect of the Rastafari which began among the marginalized poor of Jamaica in the 1930s, when they ceased to copy the particular hair style of Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia and began to wear dreadlocks instead. It was said that the wearer lived a “dread” life or a life in which he feared God, which gave birth to the modern name ‘dreadlocks’ for this ancient style.
Many Rastafari attribute their dreadlocks as a dedication to Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia as well as the three Nazarite vows, in the Book of Numbers, the fourth of the books of the Pentateuch.
All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separate himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.
— Numbers 6:5, KJV
