It could be the products that you are using. I would try applying the products with your hair upside down and scrunching in so that you are not applying the products to the root area.

I don't alternate because if it's not broke why fix it? However, sometimes your hair may require you to do so. Let your hair tell you if you need to or not. Some require rotation and some do not.
