Has your hair changed its texture? Did it go from curly to straight or vice versa? #CoolFact: Our genes for curly hair can turn on and off making our hair grow straight when "off "and curly when "on".
What scientists have figured out is the genes responsible for our hair texture can get turned on or off.
Genes can turn on and off for lots of different reasons mostly because of hormones. Several hormones have been implicated causing changes in hair texture. Changes in age, nutrition, temperature, sun exposure and various other factors can cause our bodies to change the amounts or types of hormones we make.
Some women report that their hair became thicker and glossier during pregnancy. This might be a result of increased levels of estrogen and progesterone in the body. Has this ever happened to you?
