#1: Curly Hair and Thyroid Medication
Earlier this week, someone else had mentioned that over time their curly hair has become straighter. In some cases, that may be product related. In my case, I'm wondering if my "kinky-to-wavy" transition may actually be related to my hypothyroidism and/or the medication that I take for it (levothyroxine). My hair is not as coarse and curly as it used to be. It's quickly becoming wavy and not coarse. I've experimented with products, humectants and proteins and have found that it's not a product issue. Has anyone else with hypothyroidism experienced this change in their hair? Could it be the result of hormonal changes as well? Or does everyone experience this? My hair used to be very thick and kinky like a mixed-race person's hair, but now it's just loose and wavy.
