SpiderRa, if you want more volume at the roots, you can always carefully put your fingers along your scalp and jiggle them a bit. It looses the hold and gives a bit of lift.

Of you want your curls to be puffier, you can just scrunch the dry hair with a bit product and sort of be whispy about it, it looses them up a bit for more body.

It takes time to figure out how your hair reacts to your touching it, so work with it. You might find a way to have your healthy curls with a bit more of the body that you are looking for.

Diffusing gives me bigger hair with tighter curls, if that is an avenue you want to pursue.

Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity

Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)
