The biggest challenge to figuring out how to volumize your mane is to identify what kind of locks you've got. Lots of thick hair? Tease away. Slightly thinner strands? Calero recommends back-combing. Instead of working your brush up and down, stick to one direction — down toward the root. Regardless of which way you work your brush, Calero reminds us to be kind to our hair: If you're too rough, your tresses will thank you by breaking off. And, no one wants that.
Calero even dishes on exactly what tools you need (try a boar-bristle brush), how to prep (second-day hair is best), and then how to actually go about teasing so you don't wind up with a fistful of errant hairs. Hey, if learning to tease means we can skip a shampoo every now and then, we're definitely on board. (Beautylish)
