Is it true that if hair is left uncombed and unbrushed in black males that the hair will begin to naturally form dreadlocks? if so what do you think of this method?

Yes. Its called organic locs or freeform locs. Any hair that is not combed on a regular basis will mat and tangle. And since afro hair is typically more coily, it should mat faster than someone with straight here.

I respect those with freeform locs. I think it takes a lot of confidence to do so. Rastas typically have freeform locs. I am loced my self, but I palmroll for maintainance. I would love to freeform, but in this day and age, people are not as accepting of such styles, let alone natural hair. So I twist my roots for a "neat" look.
