I have the same prob- the under layer of hair is much curlier than the top. After putting in all my products upside down, I collect most of my canopy & middle hair and kind of hold it up, then finger comb my bottom hairs down toward the floor and rescrunch. Then I drop the rest of my hair and scrunch it all again standing up.
