One of main causes of PCOS is increased levels of androgens aka male hormone testosterone.
Testosterone is broken down to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) within the hair follicle’s oil glands. DHT binds to receptor sites in the hair follicle (kind of like a lock and key mechanism) and shrinks the hair follicle, stopping them from producing new hairs and leading to noticeable hair loss.
Besides that excessive amount of testosterone and other androgens, such as DHEA-S and androstenedione, also causes inflammation. This inflammation leads to oxidative stress. Our hair follicles are sensitive little creatures, especially to something called oxidative stress and you start experiencing PCOS hair loss.
