Default Problems with my crown

My crown is really starting to annoy me. LOL I've got gorgeous curls forming underneath my crown, though! If I do my routine with my head flipped upside down I get huge 80's hair and the curls are more "stringy". If I do my routine with my head tilted to either side I get gorgeous spirals but my crown doesn't curl AT ALL. Any tips?

That happens to me, too. Lately, I've been using tiny claw clips, I twirl strands of hair on either side of my part and criss cross them over each other, works miracles and I get high curls on my canopy. Or I just grab a little bunch of hair and let the claw clip sit there for while.
The other thing I do when this limpness happens is I schedule a little trim...when I get the ends cut it lightens up the "load" on my curls.
Hope that helps.

The length of your hair is weighing your natural curl pattern down. If you get your hair cut shorter (and it depends on how long your hair is now) your hair with curl from the root.

I just got a hair cut and it's barely shoulder length. I don't want it any shorter!!! LOL

CurlyinCo,

Are you using the clips after you apply product or do you plop and then clip? I am having the same problem and am looking for any help. Thanks

Unfortunately shoulder length is long enough to weigh it down at the crown. I'm sure if you have at least another inch cut off (maybe have it cut at your chin) your hair will curl at the crown.

The last time I got my hair cut the stylist basically just layered the sides which made them curl nicely but she just trimmed the back causing the curls on my crown and in the back to be less defined and frizzy. I just had my hair cut by a new stylist yesterday and she put in some layers in the back and wow what a difference this has made! My hair is curling so much nicer back there.
You can always have layers added in without having to cut any more from the length.
