all my life I have had very curly hair but in the last 6-8 weeks

This answer was rated:

I am 66 years old and all my life I have had very curly hair but in the last 6-8 weeks my hair is significantly straight. Even my hairdresser who has done my hair for a few years noticed it. There have been no new medications or "trauma" to my hair. It is thinner now than it used to be but that is not a new development. Other than distraction to my beauty LOL could this be indicative of something medical?
