I've tried tones of products, read loads of books and experimented with relaxers, flat irons rollers and curling irons but I've found the answer! It's all about the way you hold the curling iron. Start out by sleeping on freshly washed hair, I would suggest using a moistuizing conditioner. Then when you wake up heat up a two inch barrel curling iron I use pro tools. Start by clamping the hair and rolling under then roll up, do this with each and every section of hair. When finished you will have straightened hair with a flip to get the wave scrunch with mousse and volia gorgeous waves. O I use aussie wave enhancing mousse. Hope you have as good of luck as I did!!!
