PCOS-related Hair Loss


​​Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition known for its complex symptoms, one of which is androgenetic alopecia, or hair thinning. This type of hair loss is particularly challenging because it directly impacts a person's self-image and emotional well-being. Many women with PCOS, like Amy, begin to notice these changes in their hair as early as their late teens.




“I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19, and one of the side effects I experienced was androgenetic hair loss. By the time I turned 20, I was already grappling with thinning hair. For about 15 years, I tried everything from new haircuts and comb-overs to using hair fibers to mask the thinning areas. But as time went on, these methods became less and less effective.


A couple of years ago, it reached a point where I couldn't hide it anymore. I decided to do some research and that's when I discovered hair toppers. Initially, I experimented with synthetic toppers, but they just didn't look right and they lacked the natural appearance I craved. That’s when I discovered Follea human hair toppers by Daniel Alain.”



Human Hair Toppers for Hair Thinning


For anyone dealing with hair thinning due to conditions like PCOS or androgenetic alopecia, finding the right solution can feel impossible. When changing your hairstyle, essential oils, hair serums, or hair fibers don't produce the promised results, hair toppers can be an instant and natural-looking alternative. These versatile pieces enhance volume and coverage and provide a seamless, natural look that integrates effortlessly with your existing hair.




Unlike wigs, which cover the entire head, hair toppers are designed to cover the top of your scalp where hair thinning is most noticeable, such as the crown or the part line. Toppers blend in with your existing hair and enhance your look without the need for a full wig.


“The thought of wearing a full wig was overwhelming at that stage—I wasn’t ready for such a big leap. My consultant understood my hesitation and introduced me to some lighter, less drastic options. The moment she placed the first topper on my head, it was like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Here was something I could wear without feeling like I was overdoing it.”



Wearing a hair topper restores my confidence


Regaining confidence in your appearance while dealing with hair loss or hair thinning might feel challenging, but it is entirely possible. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your visible hair loss, never quite feeling put-together because of it, or worrying about how you appear in photos, a hair topper may be the transformation you’re looking for. 


When your hair looks full, natural, and healthy, it affects how you carry yourself, how you interact with others, and how you feel day to day.


“As a teacher, my appearance matters in ways that go beyond how I look. Standing in front of my class, I need to feel confident and undistracted. Now, I wear my hair topper every day during the school year, without exception. It's become an integral part of my daily routine.”




A hair topper can bring you confidence in how you look, and more importantly, it can give you confidence in how you feel. For Amy, her hair topper allows her to participate in the fun adventures of life without the shadow of hair loss hanging over her.


“The freedom my topper gives me has been amazing. Before, my hair was a constant source of anxiety. I was always conscious of it, always trying to adjust it to hide the thinning. Now, when I'm out living my life—whether I'm at a restaurant or enjoying a day out at Disneyland—I don't think about my hair and I know my topper will stay in place.


Feeling complete and having perpetual good hair days is a big deal for someone who's faced years of hair loss. The best part? I’m no longer held back by the fear of what my hair looks like. I can enjoy the activities I love. Hair loss is overwhelming, but finding the right solution like a hair topper has given me back control and confidence.”
