Stress and hair loss are connected by the action of the adrenal hormones. Hormone imbalances induced by environmental toxins, especially the xeno-estrogens, may be the cause of hair loss in many individuals and ironically also cause excessive facial hair in women. Because progesterone is a powerful estrogen antagonist declining progesterone levels can contribute to hair loss.

In the 5 to 10 years prior to menopause, a woman's body responds by producing alternative adrenal hormones which have some male like effects. The two most obvious results of this are male pattern baldness and facial hair.

If women maintain adequate levels of progesterone facial hair drops off within weeks, but hair on the head will take up to 6 months to re-grow.
