Default My not-so curly hair ..

I really need any tips on how to make my hair more volumous and curly. I have 2 a/b hair and the top 2-3 inches is straight because I normally put my hair in a high ponytail . I want it to be curly from the top too! My hair is 2 inches or so under my shoulders. I'm thinking of cutting it 2 inches.. I'm also trying scrunching it while in the shower, and plopping after the shower for about 20 minutes. I also get a lot of frizz after I plop..Any help??? I really need it!!!

Alright I have the exact same problem! My hair is down past my mid back area and the end of it is pretty and curly but then the middle of it is all straight and just weird! So what I'm going to start doing from now on is putting my hair in a pineapple at night (if not aware of what that is you're putting your hair in a really high loose ponytail to protect it from being flat in the A.M.) I'm not SURE that It'll work but you could always try it If you find a better way to make it more curly in the middle let me know!

Well, your hair properties would be good to know ie porosity and texture. But some techniques that can help are clipping and diffusing your hair with you head flipped upside down. Also, what are you using to flop because different fabrics could cause frizz. Also, knowing what products you are using would be helpful. I have found that scrunching in gel, plopping or difffusing, followed by clipping gives me great volume. clipping at the roots relieves the hair of its weight so it can curl better. HTH

I've tried clipping but it just won't work. How do you clip your hair?

I pinch a section the crosses my part. Picture a perpendicular cross. then I take a clip and clip that little section crossing over the part. Before I tried clipping on the sides of the part and my clips never held. but this seems to work for me. After I have gone the length of my hair, I clip any random sections, I have found that pinching the hair and liftitng it slightly really makes the clipping work for me.
