Question Dreaded Dreads

Anyone have any ideas on how to set up a nice flow or bounce effect for poly modeled dreadlocks?
Dont want to use paintFX.

make them in to softbodys. maybe add some springs for shap.. one problem with this that would need to be worked out is them colliding with each other.
