Hair Loss with PCOS

Do PCOS symptoms include hair loss?

Yes. Higher levels of androgens, specifically, DHT (dihydrotestosterone) which is a derivative of testosterone, is the enemy of hair follicles on your head. It is called male pattern hair loss or androgenic alopecia because the male hormone testosterone can make DHT, a more potent androgen that can cause hair thinning and hair loss.

DHT binds to the receptors in hair follicles in the scalp, and shrinks the follicle making it impossible for hair to survive.

The key to reversing this process is two-fold:

  1. Take the necessary steps to balance hormones;
  2. Block the 5-alpha pathway of testosterone metabolism, specifically the 5-alpha reductase enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT .

While it can be devastating to lose your hair, this condition is not permanent and can be reversed with the right food, movement, nutrients and lifestyle choices that support better hormone balance through managing insulin (blood sugar) and cortisol (stress).
