Coping with PCOS: Understanding Its impact on Hair and How Herstory Hair Extensions Can Help

Living with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome PCOS is a complex journey that many women navigate daily. Beyond its well-known impacts on reproductive heath, PCOS can significantly affect your hair, an issue that goes beyond skin deep, affecting self-esteem and emotional well-being. At Herstory Hair, we understand the struggle and offer a solution that not only enhances your beauty but uplifts your spirit. 

The Hair struggle Associated with PCOS

PCOS is a hormonal disorder affecting approximately 1 in 10 women of childbearing age, caused by a hormonal imbalance of androgens, progesterone and insulin. The elevated androgens (male sex hormone) are increased to higher than average in women. This often leads to symptoms that include hair thinning, hair loss, acne weight gain, hirsutism (unwanted hair growth). The increased androgen level causes the hair growth cycle to shorten and hair follicles to shrink, leading to visibly thinner hair across the scalp.

Many women with PCOS describe this experience as frustrating, and demoralizing as they feel a loss of control over their appearance. And as we as women know, hair is a form of self-expression and often a big part of our identity.


Guidance from a medical professional and a hair stylist can help, but first start with taking good care of your hair and scalp. Choose good shampoos with B vitamins, keratin and no sulfates. Avoid heated tools, dyes and relaxers as the hair is already weakened by PCOS. Supplements such as biotin, keratin, zinc, iron, Vitamin C and D. As always, consult with your health care provider before taking any of these. Healthy lifestyle is also beneficial when dealing with PCOS. A well balanced, nutrient rich diet, exercise and keeping stress levels low are some ways that will help. Various medical treatments such as, oral contraceptives, anti-androgens, minoxidil may be prescribed by your health care provider.
