— The Demoman spreading peace
The Reggaelator is a community-created cosmetic item for the Demoman. It is a cornrow wig wrapped in an intricate black and yellow headband, adorned with Xs and a beige and tan Team Fortress 2 logo.
This item has four styles, named "Original", "Burst", "Bones", and "Designer". The "Burst" style gives the headband a floral pattern which also turns the headband's base color a lighter beige, the "Bones" style gives it a skull and crossbones pattern, and the "Designer" gives it a diamond pattern. Each style also subtly changes the color of the hair.
The Reggaelator was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

- The Reggaelator was added to the game.
- The item's description is a reference to the lyrics of the Bob Marley and the Wailers' reggae song "Three Little Birds".
- Reggae is a music genre developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s. When reggae music gained popularity and mainstream acceptance in the 1970s, the locks, often called "dreadlocks," became a notable fashion statement.
- The "Burst" style's pattern uses the same icon as the Disconnect button that appears on the main menu while connected to a server.
