Please search for SmartObjects. Convert them to a Smart Opject and then resize.

This happens because you are resizing the image. Once you confirm the resize, Photoshop renders the actual pixels at this resolution. So, when you scale it back up, Photoshop only has the newly rendered pixels it can enlarge.

As said by David, convert the layer to a smart object by choosing: "Convert for smart filter" in the Filter menu of Photoshop. This creates a separate image of the layer that's stored within Photoshop and will always remain the same resolution, unless you go into the smart object and resize it there.

If you ever want to add things to the original layer, just double click the smart object layer and work within that. You can even have multiple layers in that smart object or even a smart object layer within the smart object layer. Once you edited the smart object layer you will have to save it. Think of it as a Photoshop document within a Photoshop document.

This is very very powerful once you get the hang of it.
