Hey FairFaxFans,

Hope everyone is enjoying the rains with a hot cup of tea in one hand & an engaging book in the other! If not, fret not, for some of us are working in the office with one hand holding the phone & the other clicking away on the computer mouse.

Tuesday is here & we are here too with our weekly series: Tuesday Tips. As you know, every week on Tuesday, FairFax post a hair care tip to help you keep your hair game strong. Today’s tip is regarding backcombing or teasing.

What are you to do when you have very thin hair? Some people backcomb or tease their hair to add more volume to hair, but do you know doing this regularly can make your hair frizzy, prone to breakage & cause hair loss?

Backcombing is combing your hair from tip to root instead of root to tip. Styling at times is necessary but make sure it doesn’t damage your hair. Teasing is an old trick stylists use to give your hair more volume. Extreme teasing may be very bad for your hair. When you lift up your hair, they don’t regain their original structure. Instead, they become increasingly loose & eventually break off. Avoid teasing or back-combing as far as possible.

If you have any Tuesday Tips of your own or a favorite tip/trick for adding volume to your hair, feel free to share with us in comments below.
