My two cents worth - I had dead straight hair as a child that turned wavy/curly as a teenager. Hormones! If you look at photos of Gladys and Berniece they both have wavy hair too. Even Della Hogan (Marilyn's grandmother) had wavy hair. Seems a strong genetic link in the family.

I think all of us have seen children with curled hair who grow a straight hair as adults or are blond in their childhood and brunettes as adults. Could it be that she had a naturally straight hair as a child and a naturally curled hair as an adult?? Any expert here? That could give us a clue.

I would go along with this, in my early student days becoming an hairdresser we had to learn all about hair follicles and how they grew, what i do know is people with curly hair have a flatter follicle and people with straight hair have a rounded one, some scientists say its a combination of genetics, hormones and body chemistry mostly hereditary from your own parents, i believe everyone's hair changes every 5 years. Young children up to about 4 years often they had very fine hair, as they age and go through puberty, their hair changes from being very fine to thick or from curly to straight. As you get into your sixties it can also change from being thick and course to fine and thinner.

There are some pictures of Gladys with very curly hair when she was younger, and when she was elderly she had gone completely grey, and her hair looked quite straight?

Yes, hair definitely changes for a lot of people.
Myself for example. I was born with straight hair... which became wavy/curly... then extremely unruly in my teen years (to the point of tears)
And now I'm 28 and my hair seems to grow in pretty straight and towards ear length becomes wavy.

Also, I've bleaches/dyed my hair so many times that I really think it has gotten to the point where it's alter the follicles... so with Marilyn bleaching her hair every week, I would think she wouldn't have had to relax her hair (to straighten it). I think the bleach probably helped straighten her hair out... also thinning it out.

Typed note dated November 20, 1959, from "Lilly Dach� Boutique and Beauty Salon" at "78 East 56 Street/New York 22, New York" which gives the simple instructions: "Dear Miss Monroe:/ Use undiluted, as is unless a weaker shade is desired. /Thank you/May." An attached note stapled to the upper left-hand corner is addressed to "Miss Agne (sic) Flanagan" MM's longtime hairdresser, and reads in full "Dear Miss Flanagan/Please use 1 oz/of this rinse to 8/oz of very hot water/on roots & cond/through ends � on/Miss Monroe's hair - /the cream is to use/on shaft of/hair after applying/bleach � thank you/Miss Rosemary" � a true insight into how the most famous blonde in Hollywood had to work hard to maintain her hair color.

I just read this older post. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbup1.gif)
Very interesting indeed. Here's a bit better quality of note.
