My hair at the roots is alot thicker than on the ends, what is going on with my hair?

I don't use chemicals or heat and keep my hair moistierized and I almost always have my hair in twist and retwist my hair every 3 weeks, my hair is growing out but some how has a lot more thick shorter parts. I chopped off my hair and started natural 4 years ago. I don't understand what is going on with my hair.

When you get older your hair gets thicker (not older as in 20-30 like 10-18) Are you a teenager? Your hair maybe growing thicker (wouldn't that be nice!) otherwise there are some other causes. Does your hair break easily? do you comb it roughly?
Your ends are the oldest part of your hair, so they're typically the dryest and have the least volume, plus if you experience breakage then you may have breakage at your ends. It's also normal to have multiple curl patterns on your head but for some people this is more extreme and you can see a noticeable difference in textures. Twist outs usually help to make the curls look more uniform.
