However surprising it may sound, teasing hair is one of the trickiest and attention-requiring procedures connected with your beautiful looks. At first sight it may seem very easy, but it presents a range of know-how tips that you should be aware of to be able to make everything work correctly. Thus, if you miss out any of these points, you risk harming your hair apart from not getting the look you aimed for. So here we are going to present the basic dos and don’ts about how to tease your hair without damaging it.
First of all you need to know how to move the comb correctly. In order to build texture you have to move it in both up and down directions. In case you have thinner hair, you need to be even more attentive and careful, and in some cases even go for backcombing instead of teasing, thus getting the movements and the motions to minimum and going into one direction only. Certainly picking the right tools for doing this is also important. Thus a rat-tail comb or a teasing comb will be ideal for getting the desired voluminous effect and for doing the teasing in a gentler way. In addition you may use a brush, in case you want an ultra-smooth and soft look. It is highly recommended to tease the hair, which is not just out of the shower but was washed say a day ago. Still, if you want to tease the hair right when you blow it dry, you can prepare it for teasing with shampoos adding volume and a conditioner. Using products like root boosters may also be useful if you want a full and thoroughly successful result.
So, in order to tease you hair without damaging it you first of all need to blow it dry and create the part wherever the tease should go. Afterwards sectioning the selected part of hair is a good idea, thus creating some 4-inch sections further also splitting them in two, dealing with each separately. The teasing movements should go from the roots to the tips and the tightness of your pull will be vital for the ultimate volume. Secure the teased section with a hair spray and pass on to the other sections. Finally, just comb the surface of the teased hair for making the look natural and complete.
Thus following these easy steps you’ll be able to create the most effective and cool hairdos with teased hair ever, securing the long-lasting effect and the chic!
