The pill

Did you know, having the right balance of oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone plays a part in the health of your hair? Taking the contraceptive pill can impact these levels – not hugely but the increase in testosterone can slow hair growth.

Hormonal cycles

When you’re premenstrual you may find that alongside breakouts and congested skin, your hair feels a bit oilier or you’re prone to dandruff. Whatever the concern, using shampoo, conditioner or treatment to target them will help you manage it.


A stressful job, study or even an unbalanced diet can add stress to your body and make you feel run down, this could impact your hair too, causing changes in texture or thinning.
