Whether you’ve tried to create a bouffant or are just looking to salvage your limp locks, chances are that you’ve tried teasing your hair. Whilst this method is great at providing an instant dose of volume, it can lead to lot of damage if it’s done badly.
The back-and-forth motion used in this technique often cause breakage and split ends. Plus, it leads to knots and tangles. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t tease your hair! In order to protect your precious locks, all you have to do is follow these easy steps:
Never ever tease wet hair unless you really want to destroy it! Make sure your mane is 100% dry before beginning.
Although it may seem counterintuitive, use a wide tooth comb to ease out any knots. Smooth hair is always the best canvas.
Add a little grip to your locks with the help of a dry texturising spray.
Skip the comb and opt for a teasing brush with boar bristles to minimise the damage. Rather than going back-and-forth, brush your hair in a downward motion only. Work in small sections.
Once you are done teasing, smoothen the top of your hair. Finish off with a spritz of hairspray so that your hard work doesn’t go to waste.
These 5 steps are really all it takes to get voluminous hair. When you are done for the day, work in a bit of leave-in conditioner to help break up the knots. Then, wash and comb it out.
