3. Pick Those Roots

Many of us kinky/curly/coily-q's suffer from flat-top syndrome. We go through the motions of cleansing our hair, applying product, and scrunching our strands only to have the top dry flat. Well, nearly anyway. Remedy flat-toppedness (yep, made that up) by lifting your roots. Use a pick or wide-toothed combs to really get in there and lift those roots - do not tease. This method helps separate sections at the roots giving the appearance of an all-around fuller mane.
