They were Cushitic in appearance, and came from North East Africa. The Greeks recorded that the Egyptian civilizations were built by descendants of Ethiopians migrating North. Ancient Egypt had a strong correspondence with the land of Punt (Somalia and Djibouti), and recognised that they were the same people. Today the Oromo, Beja, Afar, Amahara and other tribes uphold traditional cultural fashions that resemble that of the Ancient Egyptians. An example is the use of animal fat by Egyptian men to obtain smooth tight curls in the hair.
