I use a large paddle brush if I want a lot of teasing, or just a regular brush.

Most people use little rat tail combs.

I DONT use these.

The reason is that they make very tight knots in your hair, which are VERY hard and PAINFUL to get out.

I suggest using a brush.

Go to the hair you want to tease.

Lift up a layer above it and tease under it, put the layer you lifted back over to cover the tease and make it look natural.

Here is an excellent video that shows what I just explained:

ok so I own multiple backcombing tools. In my collection I have: a plastic regular comb, a double bristle teasing comb, and a normal hair brush.

Personally I like the double bristle comb because it's really easy to comb out any un-wanted knots. But for convenience go for a regular brush.


1. Divide hair into 4 inch sections

2.from your ends comb carefully to your roots

3. for added volume backcomb the hair right before your roots a few extra times

4. spray with flexible hold hairspray

hope i helped :)
