I used to have this sort of poufy, undefined section in the back of my hair, but I think it was due to poor distribution. I now smooth gel over the canopy (one blob), then rake it in upside down through the back and center sort of combing with my fingers (one blob), then scrunch the ends and back still upside down (one blob), then plop in a t-shirt for about 20 minutes. This seems to get the gel throughout my hair better.
