Ronon Dex dreadlocks
The hairstyle worn by Jason’s character, Ronon Dex is a very thick set of dreadlocks. While this style looks good on him, the weight of it became a problem. At over 6. 5 pounds, his hair was causing him to suffer severe headaches and in at least one instance, caused him to suffer whiplash while filming a martial arts scene for the program. He decided to have them cut off during the off season between season’s 4 and 5 of the program.

Dreadlocks are obtained by growing the hair long and then making several small to medium sized braids that each hang independently. This is a very popular style among men from Jamaica and other Caribbean islands. They work extremely well if one has thick hair, especially if it has some natural curl already.
