Didi – A Yoruba Braiding Style

Didi is an ancient Yoruba braiding style. There two types of didi, didi adimole and didi ologede. I recently did the didi adimole and the hairstyle I chose for is suku. Suku is a hairstyle where the hair is braided up. Suku looks like a braided bun or pineapple. So the hairstyle is basically suku didi adimole. Previously (last year) I did the other type, didi ologede popularly known as suku ologede.

The second set is that of suku ologede. It wasn’t made with my hair alone, I added extensions, I used a different colour for the base and another for the tips.

Update I have been seeing my didi pictures around, with some people claiming it as theirs. I don’t mind sharing information hence opening my blog, but I want to be credited at least. Please reference my blog when using my picture(s).
