As requested - I set out to attempt to weigh my dreadlocks. Dreadlocks are kind of deceiving in that although they may look fairly short in some cases, the actual hairs inside them would otherwise be up to twice as long if left undreaded! This can lead to some serious weight, especially when they're wet as dreadlocks will soak up and hold water like a sponge. In this video I attempt to roughly weigh the body of my dreads before I then weigh one individual dreadlock for a more accurate reading. Then I repeat the measurements with wet dreadlocks to see how much difference taking a shower actually makes to the weight on my head.
