    Sleek back.

    He didn't have side or middle partitioned hair. His hair was sleeked back. He had combed his hair backwards.Please check.

    He didn't have a side parting or a middle parting.
    His hair was slicked back.
    He had combed his hair back from his forehead.

    ("He had combed his hair backwards" is incorrect.)

    Can we also say "You need to comb hair behind your head"? I mean that person has combed hair that are on the upper part but he hasn't combed the hair on rear part of his head.

    No.

    You need to comb the back of your hair too!

    Re: Sleek back.

    The hair behind your head would not need to be attached to it.
