Try a roller set! It will take a little investment if you don't already have any rollers. I use plain old plastic ones that I secure with bobby pins and blow dry on a low setting and there isn't any damage to the hair from that. If you buy an electric roller set, you are risking some damage from the heat. If I'm lazy I use sponge rollers and sleep on them, but the result isn't as good. With roller sets I don't bother being cg.

A roller set gives you glamorous waves if it's properly done and lasts up to a week. In winter I do roller sets almost exclusively; when the dewpoint is up I switch to curls and try to be as cg as possible with occasional low poos. I love both looks for different reasons. Check out youtube for ideas on roller sets.
