Hair is limp and boring

Hello ladies. I have 2c curls. I have not been using the CG method, but my hair is generally healthy, not dry or frizzy. My problem is that my hair has no volume at all, especially after I go outside. It's limp and flat. Here's a photo.

I would really like big volume. Any suggestions?

I've tried using the duck clips at the roots, but they just seem to pull my hair down rather than prop it up. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, or maybe my hair is just too fine?

    Some general tips...

    - Layers, to get some weight off the hair.
    - Do everything upside down, like blowdrying if you blowdry.
    - Flip your head over and shake your hair with your hands.
    - Wear your hair in a HIGH ponytail in the mornings and while you commute. This gives me lots of volume on top!
    - You might wanna try CG. A lot of people get curlier hair with CG, and more curly = generally more volume.
