Who doesn‘t want big, voluminous hair? Unfortunately, not everyone is born with thick waves and we have to search for alternatives to make our hair look like we just came out of a 80s movie. One of these alternatives is teasing.
Teasing may seem easy, but in reality it‘s much harder and because of that I‘m going to share with you some tips to make the experience easier and the result – better!
The first thing you need to know is that you only should tease your hair when it‘s dry. When your hair is wet, it‘s extremely weak and it can break a lot easier. So, be sure that your hair is completely dry.
If you want big, natural volume, it‘s best to skip the conditioner and the mask in the shower. These product influence on the texture of your hair and make it harder to tease. If you really want big hair, go for volumizing shampoo and spray and dry your hair with a blow dryer with your head upside down – this is the ultimate trick for voluminous hair.
So, your hair is now clean and dry. Now it‘s time for the actual teasing. It‘s really hard to tease soft hair so you use dry shampoo, for example, to make your hair more suitable for teasing. Comb your hair after that and section it. You want to start from the bottom and work your way through the top of your hair. For the bottom layers, don‘t tease too much, concentrate the volume at the top and be sure that it‘s even on both sides and at the back.
It‘s very important to comb your hair or use your fingers to smooth it out. Apply some hairspray to keep everything in place. You want to comb it because if you leave it like that, your hair will look more like a bird‘s nest rather than a finished hairstyle.
It‘s best that you tease your hair after you have done your hair – straight or curled. After you have teased it, you can add a hairband or other hair accessory to finish the look. Don‘t forget that teasing may damage your hair, more or less, so don‘t do it every day. If you tease your hair really well, it will stay like that until you wash your hair again with just some touches from time to time.
