No waves it top of head even though...

I scrunch when wet and very gently scrunch whilst diffusing.

My gel doesn't contain the PVP or PVP/VA recommended in the CG book - could this be an issue?

I use a light-hold leave in conditioner organic styling gel, with an extra hold gel... could I maybe use some Boots curling creme with it or would it weigh 2a waves down?

I'm trying to acheive more wave, but having little success.

Hope someone can help!

    Each head of hair has its own personality and wave/curl potential. Wavy hair just doesn't curl much, or curl up to the roots. If you are trying CG methods, your hair will be able to reach its highest wave/curl potential, but wavy hair usually won't turn into really curly hair. So we need to make the most of our own unique hair personality. HTH.
    2C wavy with some spirals. CG since April 07. Medium texture and porosity.

    I, too, am flat topped. I "cheat"; I clip the front for lift and I put in 3-6 big pin curls and clip it upright so when it's unclipped, it sits fluffy, not flat.
    I gotta really defuse for volume curls.
    Getting curlier the longer I CG :-)

    Me too, I'm always looking lift up stairs. The only way I can achieve this is through less length, the longer my hair, the less volume on top, the shorter my hair = more volume. It is the nature of the beast, oh, hmmm curl.
