I have the opposite problem ... my bottom layer is straight and the tops are curly. I just was at a deva salon and they suggested using a hard hold gel, scrunching in with your head flipped over, and then scrunching out the crunch when it's dry. I've tried it a few times at home and it does help. I will say it is still not as curly as the rest but at least I get a little bit of wave to help it blend in. HTH
