If your hair doesn’t hold a curl, slips out of buns, and refuses to tousle, the problem may be that it needs some more damage. Many of the current hair trends—natural texture, low-sudsing shampoos, temporary color—have little to no impact on your strands. The result is shiny, healthy, and very stubborn hair, referred to by professionals as “resistant.” Until recently, most people were coloring, perming and heat styling their strands, and these services roughed up the cuticle, making for hair that absorbed product and held texture better. Of course, plenty of people went too far and ended up with dull, damaged locks, but for those who hit the sweet spot a bit of processing improved volume, movement and hold.
