Volume anyone?

I have below bra strap length hair and I just cut it a little bit. I added 2 new layers(now have 4 layers total) to try and get it to fluff up a little more. I've taken to running a pick around root level when it's dry to add volume, but I'm wanting some seriously big hair. The area that I have the most trouble with is my canopy and part. I can get everything else fluffed up, but that bit just wants to lay closer to my head. Anyone have any tips to get it up where I want it without having to tease/back comb the top?

After I apply my product, I slide a duckbill clip in my part from front to back. So my part is pinched together. When my hair is dry, I slide the clip out and the lift is still there. I also use some butterfly clips randomly around my canopy. It gives my hair enough lift after it dries that I don't need much fluffing.

1. how do you have 4 layers? When you get your hair layered you have the starting point, then the end of your length, with "layers" in-between. Just saying.

2. I looooove diffusing my hair, pixie style, after plopping for 20-30 minutes. I diffuse my hair in about 6-7 sections and really pile the hair on top of my head, then finish it off by turning upside and diffusing some more. I've tried the duckbill clip thing but I would get kinks in my hair.

Haha, I cut my hair myself, so I kind of have 4 tiers of hair...sort of like a wedding cake :P It looks way better than it sounds, I cut it exactly how I wanted it, and that's never happened for me at a salon. Every time I go to have my hair done all they want to do is cut it all off :-/
