There's nothing borrowed from the Edo or Europeans in authentic traditional wears like this:



The only thing that could be borrowed are the raw materials (fabric, metals, coral).

^^^ ok oh.

Is the hair woven in or just wig? Did Nigerian women used to have hair that long back in the days? Or was it just a modernized part of the culture?

Women used to have hair long (maybe not that long) and the combs are still the same as they were hundreds of years ago. These women probably have their hair woven in.

^^^ there's no long hair in the pix.

Anywaz, if black women used to have that kind of long hair, goes to show how westernized products have affected our hair growth undecided

This is an older already married lady, but as you can see her hair is long, and it seems like she's halved her hair and then plaited the two sections together to make it stand. That's long. These are the only pictures of women I have found from Old Calabar.
