My hair is thinning and getting straight and I am 19. Is this normal?

I have 3B hair and it is really thick. Lately I have noticed that it is getting thinner and today my mother pointed out that there are some strands that are getting straight. I am 19 years old, why is my hair doing this? Please help! Thank you!

Hi! Hair changes textures throughout our life...especially for women because we undergo so many hormonal changes. If your hair is turning straight, this is not alarming. But if your hair is thinning, it might be an indication that your hormone levels are changing, and you may need more nutrients. A good way to cure this is to start taking supplements. You can find them at the drug store, most are just labeled hair vitamins or "biotin." Here's an article on hormones and hair...it might help you. Good luck!
