I also do what Curly Carmen Curly does. I ruffle the roots when my hair is dry sometimes and that gives me good root volume. I have to be very careful not to ruffle too much though because I'm on the opposite side of the spectrum. I fear too much volume. Especially the kind that makes me look like I've stuck my fingers in an electrical socket.
