Thanks for the replies!

I tried the clipping at the roots thing a few days ago and it didn't make any difference--what is the best way to do it?

Itsjustmeghan, when I try the scalp massage trick, it just seems to create frizz up there. Any suggestions?

ETA if you look at my hair album, you can see a big difference between the first pic (lots of effortless curl at the roots) and my recent pics. I'm not sure what caused that change
