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!
