Curls right out of the top of my head

This is what I want! How can I get this? Right now, I get some good curl in my length, but on the top of my head, it's just flat. I just need some lift! I have only been CG for 2 weeks. Is that the problem? Should I try different products? Is plopping the problem...I hope not because I *love* plopping :) Any advice for a newbie would be fabulous!!

    Do a search on clipping. It can really help with root lift. Also diffusing upside down.

    Gonna try clipping with my next wash. Thanks for the tip! I also seriously scrubbed my head today and my hair looked TONS better. I wasn't really washing correctly and was getting some yucky buildup. I am still learning, but the hair is definitely getting better!
