11. Ghana Braids with a Pop of Caramel
For when blonde is a little too much, how about caramel? It’s a lighter shade but without being too obvious, perfect for the women out there who are looking for something different but not too bright.
The caramel hues have cleverly been braided into the Ghana braids hairstyle, barely noticeable but still noticeable at the same time. It’s cute and we like it.
12. Ghana Braids with a Zig-Zag Parting
Zig-zag Ghana braids hairstyles like these were once reserved for slaves and to be more precise, a peaceful protest amongst slaves. The zig-zag nature was considered an act of defiance, and once upon a time, would have resulted in the hair being shaved off entirely.
Luckily things have come a very long way since that day and we are all free to express ourselves however we see fit. Perhaps it’s time to pay homage with some zig-zag Ghana braids of your very own?
13. Braids on Fleek!
Another great benefit of Ghana braids, and just another reason why you should take a closer look at this iconic style, is that you need to do virtually nothing to take care of them. There is no combing involved, no worrying, no muss and no fuss.
Once they’re in, they’re in, and as long as you condition them and make sure you’re not putting them under any undue stress, you’ll find they’ll be perfectly happy left to their own devices.
14. Colorful Ghana Braids Style
Did you see the unicorn hair trend? Well, you can even rock those stunning pastel shades when you’re rocking Ghana braids too! This look is so pretty and colourful, we couldn’t help but fall in love with it.
Why not ask your stylist for something a little different this time? Who wants normal Ghana braids anyway?
15. Ghana Braids Updo
You may wish to amend the easy regime a little to get even more wear out of your new braids.
Fashion, hair and beauty bloggers often recommend applying a root stimulator to your scalp.
16. Colored Ghana Braids
When your accessories are blinging with gold, it makes sense that your hair should too. The caramel and honey coloured tones, when braided together, almost look like streaks of gold and we won’t lie, we think the look is pretty fabulous!
Why not adorn your Ghana braids hairstyles with gold accessories if you’re not brave enough to try gold braids… Although we definitely think you should.
17. Pop of Red & Braid Cuffs
Or for those days when just gold isn’t enough, opt for gold and red, incorporating a third additional shade for added measure.
When it comes to colour, the more the merrier, we say. How about you? Ready to rise to the challenge?
You don’t need to wash your Ghana braids but if you want them to stay in tip-top condition, you may wish to consider using dry shampoo like many others have advised.
Washing the braids isn’t necessary but that doesn’t mean they won’t get dirty or smell a little funky from time to time. It helps to know how to keep them fresher for longer.
19. Long Ghana Braids
When you look a little closely at these braids, you’ll see that they are very similar to regular cornrow styles but done on a bigger scale.
The hair close to the scalp is braided, usually all the way down, before the bottoms of the braids are left long and loose. It’s certainly an eye-catching look.
20. Side-Swept Ghana Braids
Although straight-back is the more traditional to wear these Ghana braids hairstyles, we can’t help but fall a little in love with these side-swept ones…
Okay, may not a little. Maybe a lot.
