It's not painful unless you're trying to take it out.

Backcombing (for dreads) is when you take the lock of hair you want to make into a dreadlock, hold it out and run the comb upwards instead of downwards. You catch and push some of the hairs in each stroke, turning that nice silky lock into a long mat.


Just looking for a few good hair slaves - is that too much to ask?
