How do I deal with a straighter, drier, frizzier hair canopy?

I have 2c hair with 3a curls underneath.  It is also low porosity and high density.  I have been transitioning for about a month now and am still having trouble figuring out what works for my curl type.  Gel seems to make it greasy and creams don't give me enough hold.  The under side of my hair looks healthy and ringlets form easily, the top canopy is so much drier (due to straightening and blow drying, I'm sure), frizzier and straighter that it is like I have two different types of hair. How do I get it to behave and act more like the underside?
