HOTD: Hair of The Day!



How about I only found out what FOTD in the beauty blog/vlog world meant a few months ago! For the longest time I thought it meant Foto Of The Day only to find out it was Face Of The Day Lol! I can’t keep up with all these social media acronyms and terms. At least I knew what HOTD in the hair blog/vlog world meant! After wearing my hair out for four weeks I got these feeding/Ghanaian/whateveryoucallthem cornrows/braids done the other day and hope to keep them until mid December making it three weeks and then get something else done. To prep for the braiding process I did a henna, eucalyptus oil and natural yoghurt treatment for strength, shampooed, used Aloe Vera Juice as a leave in, air dried some, moisturised and then blow dried on cool to stretch my new growth. My current homemade braid spray consists of Aloe Vera Juice, Sofn’free’n’Pretty Carrot oil Crème moisturiser, castor oil, avocado oil, olive oil, tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil and glycerine shaken not stirred:)
And this is the hair of the day;
 
Held them in a loose bun today; I had them done pretty long when the tails are let down they reach my waist
In other hair news I had the bright idea to do an overnight onion juice treatment; BIG MISTAKE! I don’t like sleeping with treatments of any kind on my hair and I think I have even mentioned it on the blog before so I don’t know why I keep doing these “experiments”. At first I could hardly smell the onion then I guess once my hair got heated up from all the body heat I was emitting the smell became stronger I had a good mind to get up and wash it off but my eyes refused to cooperate, thank God I am a heavy sleeper so once I fell deeply asleep it was all good until I woke up and the first thing I smelled was onions! It’s a good thing I am the only current occupant of my room right now otherwise I am sure I would have been relocated to the couch or something I kid you not it was that strong. I had on a shower cap and scarf but the onion smell still came through. Oh well I guess I learned my lesson.

  1. lol, we live we learn right?! Your cornrows looks great, I've only done braids once in my life over 10 years ago and the experience was horrible.

  2. Lol that sounds like an intense lesson Lydz! I'm only just learning about this onion treatment, but I probably wouldn't try it for that exact reason.

    Your braids look really pretty!

  5. Overnight onion juice treatment?! You're a BRAVE woman. I've done an onion treatment but I could barely keep it in for 30 minutes. My boyfriend couldn't last 5 minutes lol.

    Your braids are pretty! Do you plan to wear them down or is that too much?
