Since I started growing my hair out the weight of my hair has taken my hair from a 3a curl pattern to more of a 2c pattern and even though the curls start at the root the weight makes them stick super close to my head. I was thinking of buying some root-lifter, like Catwalk's root boost or something of that nature to give my hair a little lift away from the scalp.

Has anyone one tried this with any success?

    I think SheaMoisture yucca&baobab thickening moisture mist is really good for more volume at the roots. But I think that your style method will give you more results than just a product. Try the clipping method, plopping or diffusing upside down (on low heat setting!) ;)

    You could also just accept you have less volume at te roots. I have the same 'problem' but I just don't really mind about it anymore, because I think it looks just fine the way it is. I also have less shrinkage because of this, what I consider to be a good thing.
    highlighted 3a hair. Fine strands, medium to high density. Probably high porosity. Growing uit bad layering and aiming for waist lenght!

    Pre-poo: coconut oil
    wash: CJ Daily fix or SheaMoisture Coconut&Hibiscus
    RO + LI: different every time
    Styler: CJ Pattern Pusha, CJ CIAB

    dislikes: glycerin in low dews, scissor happy stylists, magnesium sulfate

    Agreed with etos about the clipping method and styling upside down! Both of those techniques really help me get more volume at the roots. I rinse some of my conditioner out in the shower and apply my styling product all while I am upside down, then plop with a t-shirt. When I take the t-shirt off I usually flip my hair forward and back a few times and that's usually when I'm done.

    However, on days where I really want the maximum volume at the roots I'll clip OR I'll use the Deva diffuser (dryer on low of course!) just at the roots whilst upside down. I don't do it until it's completely dry, just for a few minutes. I imagine I will need to do this more frequently as my hair gets longer... I'm aiming for bra strap length!

    I've used this and it's worked well for me. Good luck!
