The braids were called ribbons or woolen ribbons decorated with gingerbread, and for wealthier girls, cowrie shells, thimbles, coins... which were tangled in a braid with a lock of hair and as such were a very common decoration of girls 'and brides' heads.

While the women wore a pair of braids because they braided their hair into two braids, the girls wore one braid entangled in a braid that ran down their backs. In addition, their number depended on the very area in which it was worn. We can distinguish two parts of each interfer.
