If you backcomb your hair too often, you destroy the hair structure. As far as the assumption. It is true that the cuticle of the hair can break open and then become detached if it is subjected to too much stress. Should we, therefore, leave the teasing alone? Not necessarily. As so often, the same applies here: It depends on the way. Because if you tease your hair properly, you won't damage it either.

To get rid of teased hair, you can simply comb it out. Incidentally, you should only do this to close the roughened cuticle layer of your hair again. Otherwise, it can quickly happen that your hair breaks off over time.

Start with the brush at the ends and slowly work your way into the teased area at the roots. Be gentle as the roughened cuticle combined with the hairspray makes the hair dry and sensitive. Even if the hair is a bit stubborn to comb, you should proceed with patience. Don't forget that styling products such as hairspray put a lot of strain on the mane, which is why it is best to clean your hair afterward with a mild shampoo and a rich, moisturizing conditioner.

How many times can you backcomb your hair before it becomes harmful?

Here it depends very much on your hair structure. If you have naturally strong, healthy hair, you can backcomb it without any problems, for example at the weekend to go out, for a date or on similar occasions.

On the other hand, if you have stressed, damaged hair, for example from too much dyeing, then you should be careful with backcombing and really only do it rarely. Otherwise, your hair structure may become really brittle due to the constant roughening. A regular styling break is good for your mane.

As you can see, backcombing your hair is a great way to add fullness to your hair, at least visually. However, it also has definite downsides when it comes to the health of your hair. But as long as you don't do it every day, your hair should be able to take the backcombing just fine.
