Are you looking to add a little more color to your Minecraft world? Do you want to increase the attractiveness and beauty of your world using all the dyes you can? Then this article is for you.

Brown tints are pretty uncommon in Minecraft. Although it’s not the prettiest color you can get, it’s still very useful as you can use it for a variety of things like dyeing leather armor, rugs, or for use in home decor. The brown color dye is notoriously difficult to make due to the need for cocoa beans. While it’s a rarer material, there are a few ways to get this crafting ingredient, from knowing which biome to find it to trading with villagers.

This article will explain how to make brown hair dye in a variety of ways and how to use it. This is a step-by-step guide to solving the brown hair dye dilemma.

To create brown dye in Minecraft, only one material is required – cocoa beans. Cocoa beans are only found growing on jungle trees in jungle biomes. However, anyone familiar with Minecraft knows that jungle biomes are one of the rarest areas you can find. If you are lucky enough to find a jungle biome, you will need to harvest the cocoa beans found growing on the trees.

Once you have found Cocoa Beans, the crafting recipe is simple. Simply turn a cocoa bean directly into brown dye at a crafting table or in your 2×2 crafting grid in person.

The good thing about cocoa beans is that they are very easy to grow in your base after you have encountered a jungle biome for the first time. Just be sure to gather cocoa beans and logs from the jungle (or a sapling) to take home. Plant a Cocoa Bean next to a Jungle Log, and you’ll have infinitely renewable Cocoa Beans from now on!

Like we just said, you might be able to trade with villagers for brown dye or cocoa beans.

You might find a wandering merchant wandering around your Minecraft world randomly, and you have a chance to change any color tint to an emerald in the Java edition. In Bedrock Edition, you can sell Cocoa Beans for one Emerald.

Since wandering merchants are quite rare, you’re better off trading with a normal villager. In both editions, an expert level herder has a chance to change the brown tint to an emerald.
