Trend Alert: Would you rock Di’Ja’s new Ankara braids?

Now this is truly fascinating!

Who would have thought to wrap their braids in any fabric let alone Ankara?

Afropop singer and Mavin Records artiste, Di’Ja may have just set us all on the path for this game-changing braids trend. She recently shared photos of her new hairstyle via Instagram with the caption: “I AM AFRICAN! 
I introduce to you “KY BRAIDS” done with Wax! Yes Ankara! Thanks to the wonderful @laetitiaky from Ivory Coast who created such beauty. When you need new ways to cover your hair. She wrapped my aphro!”

It is such an amazing idea and the endless possibilities of colourful styles that can be achieved with this has us most excited. Gosh!

At the moment, we simply cannot think of anything that can go wrong with this. Maybe how soggy and heavy it will be if you get drenched while wearing it? Well, not a problem. Unravel, dry out and refix! Or what do you think?

And think of how you can match it with outfits. This is about to be a movement and we’re too positive about it.

So the question to you is: Would you rock these ankara braids?
