I love braids.

Although..I hadn’t worn them since I was 18! But when I decided to give my hair a rest from colouring and take on a 9 month protective styling challenge it seemed like everywhere I turned someone else I knew has taken the plunge and jumped on the coloured braids gang. It made so much sense, rather than bleaching and dying my own hair (and weaves are not my first choice of hair extensions) I figured why not give it a try?

There’ve been quite a few other braid rebels over the last few months including Beyonce, Maga Moura, Rita Ora, Stephanie Coker etc rocking bright pink, blue and even green braids!   Even on Instagram there are pages and pages full of not just coloured braid, but Ombre Braids! (check out our article 2 years ago here). Nowadays the options for braided hair colours are as vast as the rainbow itself. The options of styles are also increasing, you can choose from Box Braids, Senegalese Twists, Rope Braids, Yarn Braids gosh, the list is endless.

So let me know what you think? Would you give it a try, are you obsessed with colours or do you prefer the classic black box braid?
