*These images aren't mine. They're from african tribes.org.* (see Afro Glitz online mag titled 'sisterlocks began in Africa').Visit them to see more and read about these obscure tribes that you don't often hear about.. I couldn't help but be struck with the similarities with sisterlocks! Wow! Is that where the idea came from? I must say I know next to nothing about these african tribes.(located somewhere between Ethiopia and Sudan)Although I'm a full African - West African,there are many tribes and cultures across the continent, and many are totally alien to me and I find the customs quite strange, but fascinating. I mean some paint their bodies and hair with a mixture of red ochre butter and herbs and I find it most intriguing.Where can I find that mixture I wonder...But just look at these intricate tiny locs. The woman with the baby looks like hers might be braids.
