MAX CAVALERA Says Goodbye To His Dreadlocks

Soulfly singer bids farewell to his trademark dreadlocks.

SOULFLY/CAVALERA CONSPIRACY frontman Max Cavalera is sporting a new look after apparently cutting off his trademark mono-dreadlock earlier this week.

On Monday (October 19), Max’s wife Gloria Cavalera, took to her Instagram to share a photo of her and Max with the caption: “It must be snowing in hell today!”

Max discussed his hair in a 2011 interview with MyTicket. Asked what the secret was to having “the most famous dreadlocks in the history of metal,” Cavalera said: “Just leave it there, and it grows, and leave it alone. I wash it. It’s clean. I did find food one time. I opened one of them up and found some macaroni or cheese or rice. I think my wife was going through the dreads and [she said], ‘There’s some food in here, right?’ A stash from tour.

“But, yeah, I just let it grow,” he explained. “I’ve been growing it since 1997. That’s when I started. I never stopped. There’s been rumors that I cut it off. Sometimes fans come to me and say, ‘Hey, man, let me see your dreads. Oh, they’re still there. I heard that you cut it off.'”

Max started growing his famed dreadlocks a year after SEPULTURA’s classic lineup fell apart.
