How to -Curly and Voluminous Hair

Michelle's Style File asked for a tutorial on my hair in this post and some others(like Kristina Lennon-fashion's answer to miss marple!) complimented it and commented on it as well(i thank all who did).So here it goes:
1.after washing my hair I let the hair dry out partially so it isn't dripping wet.
2.I divide my hair in two parts(the same way you would for a half up half down hairdo).
3.twist the the upper portion.Then hold it firmly and push it slightly forward to create a pouf.
4.hold it in position and wrap the twisted portion around itself. the same for the lower portion and secure them with bobby pins.
I know it looks very weird.I love going around the house like this

I left this overnight and before opening it I sprayed some hairspray about 15-20mins ahead of opening.

That is all I did.
Other methods-
Blow drying the hair upside down after shower creates a lot of width in my hair.
I also sometimes use the l'oreal studio line volumizing mousse. It is an awesome product.

I don't like teasing my hair it totally ruins it and I already have thin hair; I don't want to damage it further. And it's also a lot of work;not long-lasting either. I have found out most of these by searching for the easiest methods in less than 10 minutes on google and youtube when I had nothing else to do. These are for all people who are lazy like me or just are in a time crunch. 
Some days I don't even brush my hair and bunch it up in a top bun and leave because i am too sleepy to do anything.

 Have Been Listening to one of my All Time Favourites.Enjoy
