Transitioning from 1st to 2nd layer on a drum

I am trying to model a cable wrapping around a drum, I am struggling to get the proper transition from the first to second layers of wrap.  I am using a helix and swept boss for the first/second layers, but cannot seem to get the right transition between the two.  Ideally, where the cable comes in contact with the wall of the drum, I would like the cable to start to lift such that it is in contact with itself and the drum wall and then fall into the grove between the last two wraps of the first layer.  Does any one know how I would go about doing this?
