curly top

I have been straightening my hair for 5yrs and I'm ready to go back curly. I know it will take some time for the curls to come and the frizz to leave. My question is I would like a straight crown and curls below that my hair used to be curly all over. Any ways I can accomplish this?
There are techniques that promote curl formation at the crown, for example:
- applying product with your head upside down
- plopping
- diffusing with your head upside down
- clipping

So they are probably things you don't want to do.

A hard hold gel might help keeping the hair on top flat.
Hair type: 3b, normal porosity, medium texture

co-wash and rinse out: Inecto coconut conditioner
leave in: sHegron Aloe vera conditioner or Inecto coconut conditioner
styler: L'Oreal gel / mousse

Currently experimenting with home made flax seed gel (latest version with agave syrup and gelatine), home made protein treatments (latest version with gelatine and coconut oil)

Drying your roots first while letting the rest of your hair hang wet and heavy gives me nearly straight hair on top - obviously YMMV but I have to dry my hair from the ends up or the weight of the water still in my hair pulls out a lot of the curl (which goes against what a lot of people suggest - drying the roots first for volume, for me it just makes my hair super flat)..
