What purpose do the "dreadlocks" serve?

I only watch the movies so IDK if it is addressed elsewhere. Is there a purpose/function for the dreadlock looking appendages from the Predator's head?

Are the dreadlocks the equivalent of human hair or are they actually a genetic body part?
Also, I got the impression from AvP that elder Preds have longer dreads. So that could connect them to status/age etc within the clan.
I do think they look cool though. I like how they get tossed around in slo-mo and are adorned with jewellery. A Yautja would look kinda strange without them!

Oh god that would be horrible. He would probably have a Mary Sue running around already knowing how Predator technology without even having prior knowledge of predator tech. A Predator not wanting to hunt humans but then gladly betrays his fellow predators and goes on a murder spree. Dreadlock-less Predators.
Yeah like Paul W S Anderson, JJ Abrams shouldn't allowed to touch another Big Name franchise again!

in lore (which probably wont remain relevant), its meant to be extremely painfull for the Yautja to get their dreads. cant remember what its made of but I believe it is their hair and they get it put into locks when they hit their form of puberty. they have to remain still and quiet during the whole process for if they scream out they shame themselves. cant remember the source but I do remember reading a novel which went into detail about it all.

It was second the Aliens versus Predator book I believe or the third book? Perhaps Dachande mentioned it in the first book.
The only AVP books i read was Prey (1st Book), Hunter Planet (2nd Book, and War (3rd Book)
Your right, which obviously wouldn't be out of character for the yaut'ja seeing as they did join forces with oomans (humans) on several occasions both movie, comic, and novel.
