Her hair is behaving as though each strand has exactly the same properties and is not affected by their neighbors. I.e., real hair will bind and stick due to surface contamination (oils, dirt, etc.), variance in thickness, and static (from rubbing against each other).

At least Lara never has to worry about having a bad hair day....

Already shaved off Smile
I wonder if you can observe it growing back as the game goes on (I would not think the devs gave her the equipment to maintain it), lol
