RiRi has done it again!

When we say that these dread extensions are lengthy, we’re not exaggerating. These dread extensions almost rival that of Erykah Badu’s floor-length micro braids! And from the picture – which was posted on the singer’s Instagram yesterday – they seem to go way beyond her hips!

This may not be the first time Rihanna has rocked faux dreadlocks (you might remember her fake locs, circa 2012), but we’re pretty sure that this is the first time her dread extensions have resembled freeform locs. We love how this Rastafarian-inspired aesthetic fits perfectly with her Bob Marley-influenced caption: ‘buffalo $oldier’. And we say, more power to ya, girl!
