Im sure this is already posted somewhere, but I am terrible at navigating the internet, so stay with me on this one....So, my husband backcombed my hair this past friday night. I havent washed it, but it is slowly but surely falling out. I backcombed it all again and it's really tight now, so I put rubber bands on the ends to make sure it doesnt fall out again. Can anyone tell me if I should take them out, leave them in, and if so how long? Thanks a ton!
