To be honest, my hair never touched something like a straightener or curling iron. The most complicated thing I do to my hair is going to the salon to get a hair cut, even it was like five years ago. Other than that I will do all things by my self. I never use iron for my hair just because I’m afraid it will damage my hair. So when I wanna have straight hair I will do it old way without the iron and if I want it to curl I will do as old ways too. In this post, I will show you one of curling the method I used to do, so then I no need a curling iron anymore, the key of this method is we do it overnight. So when we wake up, the hair is ready to go. So here is how to have beach wave without a curling iron. Let’s get started!

Hair ties


You will need two hair ties because I make the traditional braid which is just the right and the left one. But if you wanna use another kind of braid it has no problem. I just find this braid is easy and fast to do. I use the small hair ties for this. I bought it in Dollar Tree if you curious (LOL) 

Work on Damp Hair

Work on Damp Hair

I always do the braid with a damp hair, if you just shampoo your hair wait until it becomes damp, not too wet. When the hair is too wet, it will lead your hair to be weak and fragile later on, at least for fine hair like mine. If you work when the hair dry, the wave won’t be that visible. So damp hair is the best way to achieve beach wave style.

divide the hair into two section

Divide the Hair Into Two Section

As I mentioned earlier I’m gonna do the traditional braid, so we need to section our hair into two, left and right. We don’t need to be so neat, just use our finger to get the line. But if you wanna have the straight line and so neat you can always use a comb.

Braid to Get The Beach Wave

I like to braid it tightly so when I sleep it won’t get messy and knot. Some of my hair will be free from the braid because I have layer hair cut. There’s no need to be tidy here. We’re gonna sleep tho. As long as the braid is tight, we’re good to go.

And now you can sleep happily till morning.

Beach Wave is Ready


After you open the braid don’t comb or brush it unless you want it like a lion hair. I just finger-comb it lightly. If you want it to last whole day just spray some hairspray as needed, but for my hair, this beach wave stays on for a whole day without additional product.

And that’s How to Have Beach Wave Without a Curling Iron, it’s simple and easy to do, the hardest things you need to have are the hair ties and motivation to do this (LOL). How about you guys? Do you like this method or you rather use the curling iron? Let me know down below. xoxo

Everybody knows that coconut is super beneficial to our life. Every part of it can be so useful for anything. One of my favorites is the oil. Coconut oil is good for moisturizing our skin and scalp too. It can help the hair grow thicker and longer. I personally like to use a natural product for skin care rather than a commercial one, just because it has no harmful chemical in it and I know what I put on my body. And here are some benefits of coconut oil. 

it is a natural hair moisturizer

Coconut oil hair mask is the most common way to treat the dry hair. It can moisturize our scalp and hair and it makes the hair softer and because the scalp also gets moisturize by the coconut oil, you will not get such a dry scalp which can lead to dandruff. So when you feel your hair dry use coconut oil hair mask, natural way to treat your dry hair, and leave it for at least 1 hour and rinse it. 

it is a cheap leave in conditioner

Well, some other people they have super curly hair which will be puffed through the day, the way to prevent it to happen is by using coconut oil as the leave-in conditioner. When the hair gets some weight a.k.a the conditioner the curly hair won’t be puffed back into their flying free mode.

it is a helper from mother earth to make our scalp healthy

So what else this super thing can do? 

Here is my video on how to apply coconut oil as a hair mask.

I like cat. Cat just part of my life, I always have cat in home, whether they come to home as stray cat or I have them since they born. Literary cat is just never stop being around me, Until the nightmare came to my hair and I had no idea if the cause of it is my cats. So sad.

Back then, I had some cats who still kitten but can already play running here and there. I used to sleep with them and that night I sleep with them as usual yet became unusual. That night I slept so deep till I couldn’t feel something wrong was happening on my hair. One of the kitten was peeing on my hair while I was sleeping and the worse thing is I didn’t wash it directly so the pee was soaked up into my hair overnight. Yap nightmare!

In the morning I wake up and still didn’t feel anything wrong on my hair because of my energy is not there yet. In Indonesia school start generally at 7 am so I have no time to recognize what was happening last night, what I knew I have to take shower and go to school. Don’t get me wrong I washed my hair in the morning. In the school I didn’t feel any wrong still, until evening when all of the family sat down watching tv. I finger-comb my hair and how shocked I was when I saw hair fall like I pull it off too hard. It was full on my hand. I keep comb it because I was scared what was happening to me. Then I talk to my parent and they had no idea what the heck is happening to me. I back to my bed and cry. When I cry and sleep laying down I smell something horrible on my pillow and bed sheet. And that was the pee and it must be the cat pee. I was directly think of my hair and relate all of the tragedy. I think I knew what was happening to me. Then I was going to bathroom to wash my hair again and it just making it worst. The hair fall on the floor make even more mess.

My hair was bald and I don’t know what to do. The next day my mom bought me fresh aloe vera leaves. I grab it and cut the edges and the skin off to get all the gel out.

I apply the gel on my scalp down to the tip of my hair. Sometimes my mom help me to apply it. I applied it every single day nonstop in the evening 1 hour before I took shower. What a surprise in a month I got my hair regrow perfectly.

Here how to use it:

  1. Cut the sharp edges of the aloe vera leaf. BE CAREFUL
  2. Cut the aloe vera leaf to small part, so it’s easy to hold. I used to cut it around 2 inches.
  3. Slice one of the skin off so you will be exposed the gooey transparent gel.
  4. Slice the transparent gel (like a #) so you will have even more slimy gel coming out.
  5. Directly rub onto your scalp. Please be gentle.
  6. Leave it for about 1 hour and cover it with thin towel. I don’t recommend using shower cap because it has no air flow and causing the hair warm up.
  7. Rinse with COLD water or wash with shampoo and rinse with COLD water.
  8. Air dry.

How much aloe vera gel should be used is depend on your problem area. You might need more than 1 leaves to cover all over your scalp. The time to see the result might be different.

Aloe vera is a great thing that always help me take care of my body problem. I didn’t believe it can worked. The key is routine to use it and we will see the result without we realize it.

I recommend you guys to try aloe vera to treat your bald hair. But don’t be afraid to ask doctor that might help you with more accuracy. Thank you for visiting my blog, hope you enjoy and get inspired.
