I'm not sure if this idea will help anyone else but I have also been having trouble not getting product to my roots, so I will be trying tomorrow dividing my hair Ito smaller sections and scrunching each section a few times, so hopefully it'll be easier for the product to get to my root; my other idea if that doesn't work is to still section the hair but maybe try scrunching from about halfway down the shaft to the roots and then scrunching the bottom. I'm not sure if anyone else suggested these ideas since my iPod touch has been acting up, but I hopefully will be trying this out tomorrow and updating my post to give results.
