Latch the wrapped hair to the straw with either a bobby pin or an elastic rubber band made for hair. You want to make sure it is not going to damage the hair in any way.
Repeat this step with multiple straws and multiple small sections of your hair until all your hair has been wrapped.
Leave your hair alone, wrapped for two hours or slightly more.
Remove the straws starting with the one you first put in. This will produce the spiral curls you have always wanted.
