Random Changes in Hair?

Hello all!! I’m 20 years old and always had soft, healthy curls. I’ve only straightened my hair once in my entire life, never diffuse, completely sulfate/ silicone/ etc. free. I never towel dry my hair, and always sleep on a satin pillow case. I follow all the “rules” and for some reason my hair lately has gotten poofy, frizzy, really undefined, and lost some of its curl. It’s still soft but VERY puffy. And I’ve never had that problem before. I just recently moved out of state and was wondering if maybe the hard water or weather changes could cause this? I haven’t changed my routine. I have a water filter and it helped a bit but it’s still super puffy. Anybody possibly have any tips to try to get my curls back? 

If it helps I don’t have a lot of hair, it’s pretty fine, gets weighed down easily, some parts are more wavy but definitely have some curls in there. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this!!

    It could be the water or climate. It could also be build up if you don't regularly clarify with sulfate shampoo.

    If you search the Science-y Hair Blog, you can find a post on hard water and how it affects your hair. Maybe that would be useful to you?

    Thank you both so much for responding to my post!! I'll definitely look into hard water more though, I hadn't put too much thought into the water after I got the filter but maybe its just not doing enough.
