Before I discovered that I had a fair amount of natural curl to work with, I used to spray my hair with John Frieda Beach Waves spray and roll it in pin curls until dry. It did look really good, and resulted in bigger spirals than I get naturally. You could also try the salt spray and braiding or bunning?
