Unique red clay hair of pokot people in Kenya

During the big events, young men and women in the Pokot tribe in Kenya will smear their hair with red clay, in order to look smart and presentable in the presence of elders and visitors.

The process of making the hair is long and tedious. It can only be done by experts in the tribe with their bare hands.

Pokot people say their tradition demands that all teenagers must look unique and different from others across the world. Styling the hair may be a good way.
