Default The top layer of my hair just won't get with the program!!!

The top layer of my hair just won't get with the program!!!

It's frustrating because my bottom layer is amazing, but the top is all gross, dry, flat and looks like it was dragged through a forest because of these things. It's inconsistently wavy and flips out at the ends, and you can clearly see where my bottom layer and top layer are, it isn't gradual or anything.

I'm a 2C, if that helps.

Any tips????

Perhaps IAgirl's protein treatment, or some deep treatments? (I think there's a thread about the former in the "2" forum)

The top is the canopy, and it gets the roughest treatment. Maybe sleeping with coconut oil in just that layer?

I'm grasping at straws here...

Unfortunately I can't help... I just wanted to commiserate with you - I have the same problem! My problem area is mainly the canopy in the back. Hopefully some others can share some tips!
