My hair is curly on top and for the life of me I cant get my bottom layer to hold curl! Most ppl Ive seen are posting the opposite so I was wondering if anyones hair was like mine and what you do.

    I usually have to use a triple barrel waver to get the bottom to blend in with the top that waves naturally.

    my bottom layer of hair is like this too! no matter how much product I put and how much I try to scrunch or twist it around my fingers, it's just lifeless! at least it's my bottom layer underneath everything so it's not too noticeable!

    My underneath layer is pretty much straight! I figure it gets hidden by the top layers anyway. The only time it's probably noticeable is when I do a half up/half down style.
    2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.

    My canopy is very curly but the underneath barely has any waves at all. I diffuse my hair while scrunching. When it is almost dry, I duck-bill about 8-10 loose scrunches up all over my head and leave it for anywhere from 15 minuites to up to 1 hour. I also use Biosilk RHG, which is serious business when it comes to holding curls. Growing out my top layers (which I am still doing) has --obviously -- helped give my hair a more overall uniform look (the curly top falls over the straight bottom).

    Old news, but ME! Now that my hair is super long, my top layers are a 2B and the bottom is just ... barely 2A. If I pull the top part of my hair up, I look as though I basically have straight hair.

    Me too! The top layer curls nicely but I'm lucky if I get nicely defined waves from my underneath layer.
