Meet The Tribe Of Africans, Where The Men Plait Their Hairs
When you think you have heard it all, something new pops into the newsfeed!
An ethnic group of Africa, the Afar located somewhere in the Horn of Africa, mainly in Eritrea, Djibouti and the Afar Region in Ethiopia, Africa.
The people are normally referred to as the toughest people in the world, and the region is reportedly one of the hottest in the whole universe.
Currently living in a place known as the Magma chamber which is constantly witnessing volcanic eruptions, the Afar people are believed to have existed since the 13th century.

One of the things that differentiate them from the other tribes in Africa is their unique traditional hairstyles - the dayta hairstyle.

The hairdo is styled and maintained by butter application.
They use loads of cow fat and butter to style their hair. These curls are obtained with sticks ( something like a mini flex rod set) and the butter keeps it in shape for days and protected from the heat of the sun.

And guess who sport the hairdo? The men!! While their women simply braid their hair all back, the men go all out to style and set the hair with their traditional rollers.
