I've created this page to share my "Hirsutism Must-haves" with you. At the moment you can find my favorite supplements, tools for hair removal and books. If you're looking to join an online support group or would like to do some further reading, I've also included links at the bottom of the page.
If you have Hirsutism, you've probably heard, that many women have found, that spearmint tea to be helpful. These Spearmint Capsules by Swanson are my favorites.
If you are ok drinking about 2 cups of tea a day, this Spearmint Tea can help with your Hirsutism symptoms.
IPL is a bit of a controversial subject in the Hirsutism Community, as many argue, that Electrolysis and Laser are the way to go. I have personally seen success with IPL. So has my mum. I got IPL done professionally (10 sessions) and now use this at-home device (PHILIPS Lumea) to get rid of the occasional hair, that comes back.
I only recently found out about this Spring Hair Removal Device from a friend. I use it to get remove peach fuzz in my face. I don't think it is as effective for dark, coarse hair.
I've been following Amy Medling's blog for a while and was happy, when she finally came out with this book. It has some useful tips and also a whole recipe section.
While there is a lot of information available for those with PCOS, Amazon doesn't list many trustworthy Hirsutism books. This book is quite scientific and pretty pricey, but if you want to get a good understanding of the condition, I can recommend it.
