Social service workers have this year launched a campaign to encourage close friends and family of caucasian people with dreadlocks to sit them down and gently start a dialogue about having them removed.

Concerns arose after several sightings were reported around northern NSW and in Brisbane’s West End recently, 20 years after Korn’s ‘Follow The Leader’ was released and well over 10 years after the great dreadlock plague that swept through the country on the back of John Butler Trio’s debut album.

“These people are clearly out of the loop” said Wendy Tosh, outreach officer at 3 Little Birds Redemption Centre. “We believe it’s because of the link between that rank haircut and it’s owners tendency to snub social media. We need to restore that breakdown in communication. And hygiene”.

When asked to reveal some of her concerns, Ms Tosh said that it’s more about their own health than their risk to others. “Alopecia is obviously an issue, as are nits, redbacks etc, though we’re more concerned about their social welfare and their ability to be taken seriously”.

Ms Tosh also said that she wouldn’t discourage the use of alcohol or other sedatives to assist in the forced removal of the hair-turds.
