I have been having some success with putting just the canopy in a loose French braid before I sleep. Big sections, so I only cross over like three times, if you can picture that, and then regular braid to the end of the strand. I'm honestly not sure if the wave I get the next day is my natural wave or kinks from the braid, but I guess it doesn't really matter--it looks pretty much the same.
Type 2c: coarse, high-density, low porosity (so it would seem)
Avoiding protein and glycerin; going for soft, non-crunchy, frizz-free waves
