Oh and to stop the messy look, just do it in neat sections and I usually just leave a thin layer of top hair not back-combed and smooth it over the top of the back-combed sections to hide any messiness.

I love big hair and do this all the time. Really difficult to do with clean hair.

I use a Bump It, it's soo much easier and stays for longer and looks amazing ;3 you can get them for around $10 @ Claire's, Sally's Beauty, or online ;3

Backcombing if done properly isn't harmful. I wouldn't suggest using any old comb, there are combs made just for backcombing. Also if you get it tight enough you can make a good backcomb last for at lest 2 days. I did a very simmilar how-to on my page.

Backcombing makes my hair look messy, not big! :'( I think I just botched the hair part when God puzzled me together before birth or something like this. x)

It looks cool, but I wouldn't advise doing it often and keep your hair well conditioned since back brushing / combing is terrible for your hair. Does give an awesome effect though :3 I do this sometimes too.

That's cool, but isn't back combing unhealthy for your hair?
