Backcomb Without Damage Backcombing or Teasing is great for building volume, but let's call it what it is, you're intentionally knotting and tangling your hair. It's easy to cause more damage than necessary.
Here are some things to consider:
* Begin at the End Make it one of the last steps in styling. If you curl or switch your part after teasing, you'll end up teasing the same area two or three times. Tease it, spray it and leave it alone.
* Proper Tools Using a teasing brush or fine tooth comb allows you to specifically target the area where you want lift. They also make teasing as smooth as possible. Teasing the root of your hair with a regular brush is more general knotting and less backcombing.
* How It's Done Take small sections at a time and start close to the root. Work slowly. Gradually backcomb 1 cm of hair down once or twice then expand to backcomb down 2 then 3 cm, pending your desired volume. At the end of the night, slowly brush your hair out from tips to roots.
* Bonus Tip Looking for all over big hair volume? After curling and styling, take large sections of hair and using a regular brush, backcomb the tips with one or two light sweeps of the brush.
