How to Tease Your Hair in a few easy steps!

Teasing your hair, or back combing, is very easy to do. However, if you don’t know the proper steps you won’t get the results you want! Learning how to tease your hair is really helpful for not just adding volume when you want to leave your hair down, but for adding volume to hairstyles.

You need just a few products to successfully tease your hair.

To start, you need just a few products.

Hairspray – I use and love Redken 23. It holds well without making your hair sticky or crunchy.

Root Lifting Powder – I have tried a cheaper root lifting powder but I recently started using Big Hair Don’t Care lifting powder and love it! It isn’t the cheapest root lifting powder out there, but you only need a tiny bit – just one little shake for each section of hair.

Teasing Brush – I’ve read so many good reviews about this teasing brush that I decided to give it a try. It works great and is affordable!

Comb – You need a comb to section off your hair.

If you want to pull your teased hair back when you are done, you will need some bobby pins and a flexi clip from Lilla Rose.

Now that you have your products gathered, let’s figure out how to tease your hair! If you need to know how to make spiral wave curls, I have a tutorial here.

How to tease your hair, step one!

Step 1.

Divide a ¼ to ½ inch section a few inches forward of the crown of your head.

Step two in teasing your hair, add some root lifting powder!

Step 2.

If desired, apply a root lifting powder to each section. I used Big Hair Don’t Care, from Milani Hair. Sprinkle a little of the root powder on the section…

Step three of teasing your hair, use your fingers to rub the root powder in.

 Then use your fingers to scrunch/rub the powder into the hair.

Step 3.

Hold the hair toward the forehead at a 90º angle. Using a back combing comb/brush, back comb a few strokes.

Use hairspray to hold the teased hair in place.

Step 4.

Spritz each section with hairspray after you have back combed it.

Step 5.

Repeat with small sections to the crown of the head.

Smooth the teased hair back.

Step 6.

Using the comb or a brush, smooth the hair back gently, and spritz with hair spray.

It is easy to tease your hair, you just need the proper tools!  Find out how in this quick, easy tutorial!

You did it!

If you want to pull it back using bobby pins or a flexi clip, here is how to do that!

Section off your hair to pull it back

Step 1.

After back combing the crown section, divide the front just above the ears on either side.

Pull your teased hair back into bobby pins

Step 2.

With bobby pins, secure the crown section to keep from being pulled down.

Step 3.

With the tail end of a rat comb, adjust the hair where it may have fallen or been pulled down.

Step 4.

Using an extra-small Flexi Clip, smooth the two front sections back and secure the Flexi Clip, if necessary twisting the two sections of hair to hide the pins.

This makes such an easy, elegant hairstyle!

I’d love to hear how this works if you try it! 

How To Get Spiral Wave Curls In Seven Easy Steps!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I really like using my overnight hair rollers, but they don’t give the look of spiral wave curls. Here is how to get spiral wave curls in seven easy steps! The first time you try this it might be difficult, but it does get easier. Depending on your hair texture these curls will add wave for 2-3 days, and you can do different hair styles each day until you wash your hair again!

Ready to try? Here is how!

Brush your hair well before  you start curling your hair.

Step 1.

Brush hair thoroughly, using a boar bristle brush. Boar bristles help to distribute natural oil throughout the hair, which is beneficial for keeping long hair healthy. The wooden handle helps to reduce static electricity, which is especially nice in the winter months!

Spray on a heat protectant before curling.

Step 2.

Spray evenly with a heat protectant. I used 44 Iron Guard from Chi. Concentrate the spray on the ends where most thermal damage happens.

Section off your hair to curl the bottom layer.

Step 3.

Divide hair into sections. First section, top of the ears. I used three sections because my hair is thick with a few layers, but if you have thinner hair you can use two or even none. I twisted it up and secured the section with a flexi clip.

Brush each section out before curling it.

Step 4

Taking 1 inch sections, brush the section to remove any tangles. If you have stubborn-to-curl hair, taking a section smaller than an inch maybe beneficial.

Wrap hair around the outside of the curling iron.

Step 5

Open the clip of the curling iron and wrap the section of hair over the clip once….

Wind the hair all the way around the curling iron.

…then wrap the rest of the way inside the clip, making sure not to overlap.

Close the clip on the curling iron and hold for 10 seconds.

Close the clip to secure the ends. Hold for up to 10 seconds and then release the clip, allowing the ends to slide out gently.

Spiral Wave Curls!

Ta-da! Spiral wave curls!

Winding the hair around the iron twists the hair slightly with each wrap, providing a relaxed, soft wave, instead of a tight ringlet.

Continue until the section is finished. I use a Hot Tools curling iron and like it, but almost any curling iron should work.

Spray hairspray on the section of spiral curls.

Step 6

Spray lightly with hairspray. I used Redken Forceful 23 because it gives a strong hold without being sticky or stiff. I’ve tried some other hairsprays but this is my favorite one. I don’t use a lot of hair spray so one bottle lasts me a long time.

Step 7

Divide another section. I sectioned about my eyebrows, straight back. Twist the top section out of the way, curl and spray. Repeat with the top section. Avoid brushing or combing the finished curls. If necessary, finger comb lightly through the ends to smooth, and spray evenly.

All done! Finished Spiral Curl Waves

All done!

Depending on your hair, the waves will last up to three waves. You can style it different ways and on the third day put it up in a loose bun or twist it up in a flexi clip.
