I’ve been interested in whether human growth hormone (HGH) injections (or perhaps a topical solution) could increase hair growth ever since I read a story about a man who started having injections and reported significant hair regrowth. However, I have since come to research the possible treatment and so far the evidence seems to suggest HGH has no potential for increasing hair growth.
It could be that people are getting mixed up and confusing HGH for IGF-1. IGF-1 (Insulin0-like Growth Factor) has shown significant hair regrowth when applied to the scalp. That’s why I use a potent natural source of IGF-1 in my personal hair growth topical solution.
Is there any evidence that HGH can reverse hair loss?
I’ve seen no published studies that have concluded HGH can increase hair growth or reverse hair loss. However, there are some articles on the internet which cite studies claiming positive effects on hair growth from use of HGH. One such article from the Anti Aging and Wellness Clinic, cite the results of a study:
How to Trigger Rapid Hair Growth
A study conducted in the Medical College of Wisconsin with over 300 participants between 1994 to 1996, suggested that almost 38% of those monitored reported improvement in the texture and color of the hair with hGH.
But if “38% of participants reporting improved hair texture” is the best outcome from that two-year study, that indicates quite clearly that HGH has little to no benefit on hair growth.
