Meaning of quahtepuztli



It is a name for a layer of mud that was put on the hair by the native Mexicans to eliminate lice. I don't know if I can help with the etymology: although qua or cua is understood as "head", tepuztli would be "metal" and unless there is some association with the "helmet" it doesn't make much sense.
