Turns out that there is some serious truth to the fact the Egyptians were Black Africans .I often wondered why Hollywood refused to accurately display movies that have Egyptians with Dark skin tones. That always boggled my mind. The natural hair of this mummy proves what history has been saying all along.
2000 Year Old Mummy Still Has Natural Hair.
I tell you one thing though, after 2000 years her natural hair is still intact, i have GOT to know which protein treatment she was using cuz damn. 2000 years! Some of us can’t stop our hair from falling out after a month, but 2000 years?!
The ancient Egyptians styled their hair an analysis of mummies has found.
Natalie McCreesh, an archaeological scientist from the KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology at the University of Manchester, UK, and her colleagues studied hair samples taken from 18 mummies.
The oldest is around 3,500 years old, but most were excavated from a cemetery in the Dakhleh Oasis in the Egypt Desert, and date from Greco-Roman times, around 2,300 years ago.
