What do you use to "spot curl" your hair?

So, lets say you do your hair, put in your products, and then you notice one or two areas that are flat or the curl is not great. Do you have a favorite product for this? or do you just add more of the same as what you used? When I have this problem, I know that if I mess with it too much it will go from flat to frizz...
I will use a small curling iron to fix the flat parts.
I take a small amount of my most slippery gel and a little bit of water, smooth it on, finger coil it, and scrunch if I need to. This usually does the trick. If not i do 1-2 pin curl type things and leave it for about 20 min or so.

I usually hold the end of the section, run dampened fingertips down the length, then cup the section in my palm and scrunch. It feels different if there's not enough gel remaining, so I might do it a second time, with a dab of gel on my fingertips if it doesn't respond well. Most of the time, though, it's just one of my odd, itty bitty sections which doesn't have as much curl as the hair surrounding it, and it doesn't need gel so much as a second chance.
Peace,

I used to use biosilk rock hard gelee but havent tried it in a while. It had a really strong hold. Otherwise I like LA looks gel.

Scrunching with gel, and holding it for a few seconds.
I use duckbill clips and pin the curls up for a bit while they dry, and I use bobby pins to lift them, too. I also refresh the areas by smoothing them over with a fine tooth comb or my fingers (provided the hair is still damp) and then I use the "skip curl" technique from CHS.

I remoisten the section, add more product if needed and do a "skip curl". Sometimes I wind the twisted hair around my finger instead of "skipping" it, I've also "rolled" it around an eyeliner pencil, hold for a few seconds and unwind by pulling the pencil downwards while holding the curl gently in place. I sometimes have to rearrange my front curls this way on 2nd and 3rd day.

If my crown is flat I use butterfly clips to create "waves" and lift, also metal clips.

Some sections of my hair turn almost straight on second day hair-a small barreled curling iron is my solution, too!
