There are a few threads on rag curls, pin curls or using rollers to set damp hair and drying it overnight.

Hi Elichan :)

There is an article in the Hair styling section on how to get deep waves without damaging your hair. http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=82

Soft rollers like these (https://www.gigibeauty.com/images/ANNIE/A1203.jpg) do not damage the hair either. Especially if you dab a bit of leave-in conditoner on the ends as you start rolling each section.

When it's wet, roll it up and leave t until ti dries, and possibly even longer. For me that usually takes 3 days, but it's so worth it.

I would reccomend getting soft rollers though as you may have to sleep on it.

Hi there! I oftentimes set my hair when almost dry with curlers meant to sleep in. This results in gorgeous curls for the next few days until I'm ready to wash again. It sounds like we have similar hair types too and I love how sleek my hair looks when rolled. Good luck!

RAG CURLS!!!!! They are comfortable on the hair, and you can get tight waves, or ringlets with them depending on how you take them out, oh yeah and did I mention they are really comfortable??? :bounce:
Oh yeah, and best part... NO DAMAGE TO YOUR HAIR!!!! Plus if you have to go out somewhere you can put a kerchief on your head and you look super cute :D

Rag curls, paper bag curls, and pin curls all work.
If you can figure out how to rope braid (I still can't), those can leave some lovely curls as well.

I was going to link to the deep wave tutorial, but Isa-belle beat me to it :) I'm a big fan of rag curls as well.

Basically, it's curls you make with rags :D

This video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxgwbWc5Yiw) was super helpful to me when getting my rag curling technique right. For me, putting the ends of the hair inside the fabric before rolling has been absolutely key. Have fun with the curls!

woow... thanks!!:cheese: i think putting the end inside the fabric is going to help me a lot because my hair is so long and it's so hard to handle :o

I have curly hair, but back when I used to straighten and I wanted a nice wave I used to comb it straight when wet, let it dry almost all the way put in a little hair cream, moose or gel type stuff, and put it back in a low scrunchi. I'd put in in a ponytail and pull the tail almost all the way through then let it dry like that. When I took it out it had nice soft waves in it.

You might try making 5 sections damp with setting lotion, twisting the length of each and pinning up into small mini-buns. After 4-6 hours, loosen, shake et voila!
