Default 2c damaged hair! Help me get to 3a!:)

My hair is a 2c round abouts and though it is very curly at the bottom it doesn't curl up top and I also find it hard to get volume on top. I'd like to be a 3a so could anyone give me some tips or advice? 2c damaged hair! Help me get to 3a!:)-uploadfromtaptalk1367692319736.jpg

Do you air dry your hair or do you diffuse? I find that pixie diffusing while bent over gives me root lift and root curl. If I air dry, zero root curl. I also apply mousse (aquage uplifting foam, not quite CG but I've never had buildup problems with it) to my roots for some extra volume.

Loads of options .... Wash upside down, scrunch in all products from wash out conditioner onwards, clipping and/ or plopping to take the weight off the roots whilst the drying process begins, diffuser dry upside down, have some layers cut in to take the weight off the longest parts. Hydrolysed protein treatments and/ or product containing magnesium sulphate (homemade epsom salt spray or Jessicurl) BUT both these can be drying so also do deep conditions, coconut oil products are great for damaged hair.
