Snooki doesn’t wear poofs anymore, so not only is yours out-of-date, it’s also damaging to your hair. Backcombing can help your hair reach the heights, but it’s also an evil habit.
The outer layer of your strands, called the cuticle, points down. When you comb in the opposite direction, you’re pushing the cuticle back, creating tiny little ruffles. The next time you brush, you’ll slough those scales right off, exposing your strand’s inner layers.
Ultimately, this behavior will lead to split ends, so turn down your hair volume a notch!
