Help Volumizing

So I am new to the website and everything seems so scattered! I have 3a hair and I wear it curly most the time, but sometimes I straighten it out. The products I have used in the past and love are Bain de Terre shampoo/conditioner for curly hair (camelina) and the curl cream. I also use pantene's mousse for curly hair. Right now I am using Tresemme moisture rich shampoo and conditioner, flawless culrs curl hydration lotion, and pantene's fine spray gel root lifter. My hair is about 2 inches below my shoulders and is healthy, but kind of on the thinner side. I just needed some feedback on how to get more volume into my crown because the only way I can seem to do it is by backcombing and using a lot of hairspray which I don't like because my hair isn't soft and touchable that way. I have tried the clips, plunking/plopping, and diffusing upside down, which gets my hair voluminous all around EXCEPT for the very top of my hair. Please help!

    If I want to get more volume at the crown I will do my final rinse upside down and then immediately after I get out of the shower (keep your head upside down) I will put my hair in a towel and then when I'm done getting dressed I will put my product in and plop. : ) It always gives my lots of volume!

    plopping and final rinsing is a good idea, i would also scrunch your products in upside down give your scalp a good message to really lift your roots. then flip back up n see if your happy with it :)

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
