Why is my curl pattern changing?

I straightened my hair in October and and my curls seemed to bounce back ok, they were not too loose but not completely bouncy and coily as they were before. I noticed in photos my hair looked fine after straightening. However, now my curls have become less bouncy and I dont understand how this change occurred if my curls looked fine and bouncier months ago even after I straightened it. What could be the cause of this change over time? How could my curls become less bouncy now than it was after straightening?

    How did you straighten?  Was it a chemical process or a heat straightener?  Have you clarified recently?  You might have build up on your hair, preventing the curls from bouncing up.
