The Mini-Bun Technique
This technique by far produces the best curls. Like born-with-curly-hair curls.

What you'll need:
-regular bobby pins
-Start off with clean, 80-90% dry hair, brushed out.
-Start off at the front of your head, with about a 1" section of hair. Twist the piece continuously until it forms a bun, secure with two bobby pins in an "x" formation. Depending on the thickness of your hair, you may need more bobby pins. I did.
-Note: While doing the front most pieces, around your face, contemplate what direction you'd like your hair to curl, the best way is probably away from your face. Twist accordingly.
-Continue to do this until you've twisted your whole head of hair into little buns. It should look like this:

Like I said, it wasn't comfortable to sleep on, but I think the payoff is worth it, what do you think?
