Beauty ritual: the girl is allowed only two braids, after puberty a large number will adorn her hair. Every day she smears an ointment made of animal fat and haematite (red stone) powder from head to toe, thus protecting herself from the sun and insects. Her large necklace will be removed on the day she becomes a mother.
