My top layer of hair is very heavy and doesn't curl as well because of it. It use to really well though. I just got my hair cut shorter, a little below my shoulders, and had some layers put into it to help reduce the heaviness. I also clip up the top layer while it's drying to help create more volume for the top part of my hair. It just seems to be flatter at the top with some awkward wave that use to be spirally curl, and super curly at the bottom. The hair cut seems to be helping a bit. Any other suggestions please and thank you ?
