I've also had some success applying AVG mixed with a few drops of jojoba oil in my hands before going to bed. I smooth it lightly over the top, flip my hair over, and scrunch well. Then I sleep with my hair swept up as above. I get really well defined curls with almost no crunch left to scrunch out the next morning. Usually just pulling my hair back as if I were going to make a ponytail leaves my hair very soft.
