    There's some tutorials on youtube. However, none worked for me but they may for you :)

    Curlformer set, straighten the curls by unwrapping/twisting them, then wrap your hair with a brush. Scarf on for the night. Your hair may be a little wavy but not much. At least thats how my hair is. Also, use oil or serum when wrapping/brushing. This may nott work for you if you have a tighter texture than me (3c) what is your hair type?
