Ponytail poofing

All my life I've always wanted my curly hair flatter...the flatter the better! Due to the new Trend though Id like to try proofing it on days when I want to wear a quick pony tail or bun but have a cute poof to make it look a little dressier. However anytime I try proofing, I end up with a crazy frizzy mess or it disappears. I'm obviously doing something wrong. I've tried wet and dry but results always end up bad. Anyone have any pointers for a new poofer?

    Why do you want to poof it? That's like teasing your hair. Let it be because curly hair is usually thicker

    Frizz loves me
    I hate frizz
    It sticks to me
    like a kid
    with some creams
    and some gel
    and then nothing does the trick
    Please help me

    My ponytails are flat too. I get good volume by putting the lower half in a ponytail first, then adding the top in with a second elastic around the whole ponytail. Then I can leave the top looser and fuller without sacrificing the hold. Someone on here used that trick, I'm sorry that I can't remember who!
