This sounds odd...but do any of you have changes in your hair?

My hair prior to taking it was wavy with a bit of curl and looked quite thick.
Now it's gone straight and has a kind of slick feel to it. Very strange.

I started Mepron in March, 2017 and in end of July or August I noticed that my hair was straight - at the top and the bottom (old growth) was only wavy.

I continued taking Mepron and then Malarone for about 8-9 months. Then I took a break for a couple of months and am now back on it again.

Girlie, is the slick feeling kinda like a waxy feeling and does your hair shafts closer to the base of your scalp feel different ?

yah, kind of waxy. It seems to be right at the roots coming out that way.

I though at first it might be the curling wand I'm using...that has permanently taken my natural wave...but I don't use it at the very top of my head.
coincidentally, I bought the curling wand a couple of months after starting the Mepron...


Any ideas?
