Hey curl hey!
Are you the type of person to wear exclusively black braids? As in, whenever you braid you always pick colour number 1b or number 2. If it’s a stretch you probably go for a dark brown huh? We think you should branch out and try new colours! Granted that some colours are not suitable for your work or lifestyle…But if you are able to try new colours, these are the ones we suggest:
Black braids with dipped ends are a great way to try colour without going too far out of your comfort zone. Ashley Chao created beautiful passion twists using Darling Abuja braids, colour 1/Dark Green. These are black with dark green ends. We at Black Hair Hub approve! Watch her video here. I’ll personally try these out and let you know how it went!
The reason why we advocate for purple braids is that Justine Skye makes them look so darn good! Go for a vibrant purple with Abuja long or short for an elevated look. Whether cornrows, twists, box braids or classic braids, you will look like a superstar in this colour! Plus they’re super light so you won’t feel weighed down. Watch this tutorial of purple ‘’bandika’’ braids and thank us later.

On Instagram has us in awe. We really love how she was able to blend the 2 colours! This is fun but sophisticated at the same time. Check out the Darling website here to explore the various available colours.
This alluring deep hue is a delicious combination of purple, blue and black. How amazing would this look on your hair? No need to imagine. Get it. It’s Darling Abuja in colour Number 9. Xpression also comes in this colour. Check.
Forget the dark brown and blondes. We want to challenge you to try this black dipped in grey/silver! This colour is life! It gives you the chance to try silver hair without doing full-on. Yay Darling! Watch this tutorial to see how @vivy_mutheu created the most gorgeous 1/Grey braids you will see today…Or any other day.
