I have exactly the same thing this winter. I have fine hair and no matter what I do it always wilts away NO volume whatsoever at the top 3-4 inches just curl at the ends. I have tried clips and diffusing, plopping, claw clips you name it nothing seems to help. I even shampooed with sulfates for the first time in over a year thinking maybe I needed to clarify but it went WAY flatter again. Tried mousse last nite no volume just flat and lifeless. It has been suggested to me to try natures gate co so I may do that, maybe I need to change condish...changing products has not seemed to help tho. Sorry Im no help I just had to commiserate :^)
Lots of Fine easily weighed down 3A curls
