The real determinant of whether your hair does what you want it to do at any one moment is physics. And a new paper in the journal Physical Review Letters —which is not typically in the habit of offering haircare tips—explains why.

I've always thought of my friend Caitlin as having the cutest just-came-back-from-the-beach tousled curls.

As frustrating as it can be to style curly hair, having straight locks amidst the curl makes styling even more of an uphill battle. Not only are curly hair follicles affected by the weather, but they can also change from hormonal imbalances, such as during puberty and pregnancy. There are various ways to fix this anomaly, some temporary while others are longer-lasting. Observe how curly the rest of your hair is in relation to the wavy or straight locks to determine the degree to which these parts of your hair should curl.
