after the shower,
1)let it air dry, make sure its completely dry
2)put on some hair creme (i use sunsilk) and gel.
3)french braid your hair into sections, i do two and it doesn't have to be braided well.
4)sleep on it
5) unbraid your hair and position your curls, if you have bangs i do mine with a curling iron because i trim my bangs more often..
