I have the same issue. Periodically I have my stylist heavily layer that area so it springs up more and doesn't look so stringy. I also make a point that when I put my leave in condish in, I part my hair so I get some condish directly in that area. I also add more styling product to that area once I have run through the rest. And i try not to diffuse that spot for too long because it dries out way quicker than the rest. Its an ongoing battle. Lol!
