Doing hair or getting hair done is more than a simple daily routine. Hair ritual helps people connect to their ancestors.

From Nigeria to Senegal these coiffures (braids, curls, cornrows) are perfected by various decorations: cowries, beads, mother-of-pearl buttons,medals, pieces of silver, amber balls, metal rings, and pins of wood, bone or ivory.
