Anyone else have hair that's changed texture after a certain age?

I don't know if it's hormones or what's going on but over the past year or so my hair has curl to it where I've always had stick straight, fine hair. It won't even stay straight with a flat iron most of the time. I've actually been just diffusing it lately because it's driving me nuts!

Some people's hair changes after having children (not sure if you've had any, just a thought). Mine got slightly darker and even straighter than before.

I'm 42 and it really started when I turned 40 and more so in the past year.

I have two kids, but nothing changed when I had them. I'm about to just cut it super pixie short! The extreme heat and humidity we're having this year is NOT helping.

well, i'm not a doctor or anything but from personal experience, it very well could be due to a loss of estrogen
maybe you're in perimenopause you're at the 'typical' age for it.
are you having any other symptoms?

When I was a teenager I got a slight kink in my hair, although until the age of 10-12? they were completely straight. After giving birth less than 3 years ago, my hair have gone crazy.. Flat iron won't always help either.. The hair would just curl up again no matter what.. Especially when the weather is damp or it's raining.. Very frustrating.. All my attempts to have a cool straight hairdo often don't go down well, and I think that this curly hair has always made me look slightly older.

Hair that turns gray also changes texture in my experience.

Why I have no idea, but it seems that if they turn gray they also become wirey,

Sucks. But can be fixed,

I hear that WEN is an awesome product that I will be trying very soon.
QVC I believe.

I think it makes me older and frumpy if I wear it curly.

I've used WEN here and there. It's a really great product.

I had cut three inches off of my hair and I don't think it helped anything. So the shorter, the curlier it gets.

My hair was always very curly (like ringlets) but the older I get, the straighter and coarser it gets. I am sure that coloring it doesn't help.
