African tribes have always been distinguished by their authenticity. Especially those who live miles from large settlements. Often, tribal residents build very unusual hairstyles on their heads to emphasize their beauty.
The creation of such works of hairdressing takes a lot of time and energy. But as they say: "Beauty requires sacrifice."
Nature endowed Africans with thick hair, which is very difficult to style. Therefore, one of the most beloved hairstyles of the entire African people are pigtails. All of them are worn - both men and women.
In addition, for the growth and strengthening of hair, women use various vegetable oils, tree bark and decoctions of herbs. But the most interesting is yet to come. Smearing all this “beauty” on the hair, they do not wash their hair for years. Nbalantu women braid their braids and make very complex hairstyles from their hair. See for yourself.
And the representatives of the Dasanech tribe prefer to shave bald. And then decorate the skull with a wide variety of objects. It can be corn cobs, tree fruits, hairpins and even corks from beer bottles.
But most of all went the representatives of some Angolan tribes. They braid their hair in braids and then apply a composition of a mixture of pumice of volcanic origin, herbal ingredients and milk.
According to women, such a “balm” helps protect hair from the adverse effects of the environment and makes them more attractive.
For greater beauty, they hang jewelry to each braided braid. It can be skins of dead animals, straw, leaves or twigs.
