Hi ladies! I was wondering if you could help me out with some hair trouble I've been having for almost two years now. When I was younger (read: teenager through early 20s) my hair was thick, shiny, and smooth. Suddenly, it changed texture from smooth strands to kind of a crinkly texture. I used to be able to run a single strand between my finger tips and it would be perfectly smooth, but now, the majority of my hair is this odd crinkly texture. It doesn't really affect the overall waviness of my hair, though I think it's a bit frizzier, but it feels odd when I run my hands through it. I've done everything I could think of to try and change it back to the smooth texture it used to be. At first I thought it was drying out, so I switched to a heavy duty conditioner. It gave my hair more of a wave, but did nothing else. Then I thought, maybe it's a product buildup problem (I used to be a swimmer), but it didn't feel like they typical greasy feeling of chlorine buildup. I tried a clarifying shampoo and an apple cider vinegar rinse, neither of which helped. The ACV probably made it worse, actually, though it did make my hair shiny. I'm kinda at a loss. I asked my hairdresser, and he mentioned vitamins, but I already take a multi-vitamin (and have done so since I was a teenager). I don't blow dry my hair, I don't straighten it or curl it either, so it can't be a heat damage problem. I've never dyed it, so that's not it either... Any ideas?
