Changing colour while maintaining shading?

Hi! I'm having difficulty changing the colours on this picture: Screenshot 2019-04-29 at 21.14.11.png

I want to change the colours to something more like this:

What I can't seem to figure out is how to keep the shading (to make it look more like a real cord) while changing the colours...any ideas on how to change it? Any help is very much appreciated! :)

Something like this? There are several ways to do this. In this case i turned the original layer to black & white. I thn used the blend mode hard light on the second layer (with the colours). Fine tuned it with blend if and adjusted the brightness with curves adj layer.
