First off I'll tell you how I do my hair, I put in a spray that protects my hair from heat damage, then I straighten it so that its pin straight, then I put a little bit of hair wax by the roots to prevent frizz. Then I spray all my hair with hairspray and put my first layer into sections, I spray the first section with hairspray and start backcombing it til it stands straight up and then I spray it again, I repeat this for the entire first layer. For the second layer, I spray it all and put it into sections and start teasing it, but so that it stands just under the first layer, and then I re-spray it again. I do the same thing for the third layer. Then I use my hands to push down my hair and form it the way I want it to be, after wards I take a comb and brush in any stray pieces.
