Default Will the birth control pill change my curl pattern?

I am planning on going on the pill in a couple of weeks, and I was wondering if anyone has experienced hair loss or change in curl texture/pattern after going on it. I really am worried that my hair is totally going to change because of all of the hormones going on.

Anyone have any experience with this situation?
EXTREMELY thick, medium 3B-3C hair;
I have yet to find a hair twin ANYWHERE...website or real life

Current routine: Um, I don't feel like updating my siggie every thirty minutes. I'm experimenting right now! (loving the overnight plop!)

It might change it a little bit. I was more like a 3b before I went on the pill and now I'm a 3a. (It is a little disappointing, and would love to find some bc that will prevent pregnancy just as well, but not mess with my curl pattern!)
2c or 3a Cut most of my hair off in July '12 and am working on regrowing it.

I think my curls loosened slightly while on the pill, but returned to normal once off the pill.

I've been on the pill since November 06, and I haven't really seen any difference in my curl pattern...but maybe that's because my hair is already mostly 4a with some 3c. I think as long as you eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of water you should be okay.
Mostly 4a..crazy hair

I didn't notice a change either. It probably varies depending on which pill you take though. I just put that because it's cute
