Girls in the Borana tribe have to grow their hair only before marriage. Before getting married, they have to shave their hair in order to get a good groom. As per Borana tribe belief, if a woman shaves her head then she will get a good husband. Another thing that will surprise you about this tribe is that they don’t consider it good to be photographed.
