I'd try a twist and curl with something with a good hold. (I'm no expert. Just tossing it out there.) Basically you 2 strand twist then put your hair in rollers. Either blowdry or air dry if you have the time. Then you take it down, separate the curls and fluff.
I don't know how it'll work, but it's worth a shot.
