Do you know why hair particles get strange when animating?

Here is the thing: I have a character with a hair particles system for hair. My character is animated through an armature. So I move my character, make him following a path, through his armature: and as soon as I move this way, my hair get crazy.

I precise that armature modifier is just above my particle system.

  • $\begingroup$ I built my particles system directly through my character object. I defined my particles thanks to a vertex group on the head to fill the density field. $\endgroup$

Make sure your subsurface modifier is on. Also, you will have different results if the view-port and render subsurf levels are not the same.
