Agree your hair might be heat damaged, and as it gets healthier the top might be less flat.

I have a flat top too...bane of my existence, lol. I tried probably every method of drying out there, what I found works best for me is

- Microfiber towel straight out of the shower (the turban twist kind for hair)

- Leave on while getting dressed, etc.

- By the time I take it down about 15 - 30 mins later my hair is damp, not soaking. The curls are intact, no frizz. Also, since my hair is piled on my head under the towel I feel like it helps with root volume a little.

- I can then use the diffuser for MUCH less time than when I was using it on very wet hair.
