I have been reading through some of the posts and I thought I would share my exp....as a little girl I had very curly hair. In the end of elementary school through middle school my hair went straight. I got my period my sophomore year and my hair got curly again and stay curly through college. Then I went on the pill and my hair went straight again!
I have been off the pill for a couple weeks now and haven't noticed any change yet, but my fingers are crossed - I want my curls back

I never made the connection until this year when I stopped taking them. I went off the pill in mid-January and 3 weeks later my curls reappeared with a vengeance.
I truly believe the pill caused my curls to diminish greatly...my old curls are back and I'm so happy!

I've been going crazy trying to figure out what happened to my hair though and I think I finally figured it out! I want my curls back! I hope it won't take 3 years to curl up again! Oy..
