you have ruined your headset bearing races. you probably had a loose headset when you hit the curb, which pitted the race and now the bearings get tight when they fall into those pits. or, you warped your head tube and it binds. i'd guess it's the first.
or, it's an old headset with a center notch to aid in keeping the wheel straight while not in use, and you just never noticed it until now. but i'd assume it's not an old headset.
either way, new headset and face/ream the headtube.
