To dream of dreadlocks represents a mindset that is laid back or never thinks something is a problem. Negatively, dreadlocks may reflect laziness or some area of your life where you are noticing yourself being a slob. It may also be a sign that you aren’t as concerned about something as someone else is.
Example: A young man dreamed touching his dreadlocks. In waking life he had just broken up with his girlfriend with a friendly mutual understanding.
