Rare Treatments to Reverse Hair Loss (Cortisone, Stem Cell, Microneedling)

Rare Treatments to Reverse Hair Loss (Cortisone, Stem Cell, Microneedling)

Reverse Hair Loss

We have covered a great number of treatments to help you reverse hair loss here on Hair Growth Pills. In this guide we’ll cover the areas as yet untouched. You probably already have a good idea of what the common treatments are. If you have been suffering with hair loss yourself, then there’s a good chance you have gone over these many times before. But there are many more treatments out there if you read the literature, take onboard the available research and prepare yourself to try something new.

It’s those treatments that we will focus on here. So, we’re taking a break from common treatments like Minoxidil, Finasteride and Hair Growth Products and we’ll cover options such as:

  • Cortisone Shots for Hair Loss
  • Microneedling for Hair Loss
  • Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Loss
  • Baking Soda for Hair Loss
  • Cedarwood Oil for Hair Loss

The question is, do these work, is the research genuine and promising, or is it just more expensively branded snake oil for an industry that already has its fair share?

Cortisone Shots for Hair Loss

Cortisone Shots Hair Loss

There are very few prescribed treatments out there to assist with hair growth, but this is one of them. If you are using cortisone shots for hair loss then they should have been prescribed by a qualified physician and they should be given by a medical professional in a controlled environment.

You can use cortisone shots for hair loss in many forms, including alopecia, which is often considered to be completely incurable. You can also use them to reverse hair loss that is temporary, as discussed on the NHS site in the UK, where it is considered a viable treatment for all kinds of hair loss, including Male Pattern Baldness.

Cortisone shots for hair loss involves the injection of steroids into the bald patches of the scalp. This is repeated over the course of several weeks and should be able to stimulate growth more or less immediately. They can be used on the scalp and they can also be used on the face to help with beard growth and other hair growth.

The purpose of cortisone shots for hair loss is to stop the immune system from attacking the hair follicle, which is the main cause of alopecia. It can also help to reverse hair loss in those who do not suffer from this condition. However, while there are few effective treatments out there for people who suffer from alopecia, there are many from those whose hair loss is triggered by something else. If you’re in the category, then you should always look to try another solution before opting for cortisone shots to control your hair loss.

Microneedling for Hair Loss

Microneedling Hair Loss

Microneedling is one of the most popular methods out there right now to reverse hair loss, and it seems that you can’t visit a clinic, a salon or indeed a hair growth website without hearing about microneedling for hair loss. The most popular method out there right now is the Dermaroller, which we have already discussed in our Dermaroller Review page.

Microneedling for hair loss has been shown to be effective in some patients, but it’s primary purpose seems to be to help with skin problems such as acne and stretch marks, and it hasn’t shown as much promise with regards to hair loss. This one is still very much open for debate, and while we generally had a negative opinion on it in the aforementioned review (experts advice caution as it can be unsafe and should not be performed unsupervised or by anyone other than licensed professional) it’s one that we are still considering ourselves.

We would advise leaving microneedling for hair loss to the professionals. Try other methods first and only come back to this if nothing else works, if you can get it done by a professional and if you’re not resorting to buying the expensive roller yourself and performing the treatment in your own home.

Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Loss

Stem Cell Therapy Hair Loss

Stem cell therapy for hair loss is one of the most effective treatments out there as far as we can tell. It is a non surgical treatment that involves the triggering of stem cells, which are forced to regrow new hairs to reverse hair loss. These cells can be found in the hair follicle and the goal of stem cell therapy for hair loss is to activate them in order for that hair to come through like it should and like it perhaps one did.

It has been hailed by many as a miracle baldness cure, with business site and magazine Forbes describing it as just that. As with all treatments to reverse hair loss, however, it’s not all positive. It doesn’t work all of the time, it’s not for everyone and it is also one of the most expensive treatment options available, if not the most expensive period.

Baking Soda for Hair Loss

Baking Soda for Hair Loss

There are people who believe that baking soda can fix anything, from cuts and bruises to stains and more. This isn’t just something you use to bake a cake and there are even suggestions that you can use baking soda for hair loss. As with any other cheap and “miraculous” cures, there are many faults with this method, but there are some benefits to it as well.

Firstly, it can help to remove harmful and toxic residue from your hair. This can come from the environment and from the things you come into contact with on a day-to-day basis. But the majority of the harmful residue comes from the products we use, whether to color, to clean or to style. By removing this you can successfully reverse hair loss and bring your hair back to a natural state.

This is especially true if you have recently spent time in a pool or hot-tub, as it can also help to remove chlorine. All of these chemicals can damage your hair and they can also stunt growth. It’s unlikely that you will experience any significant hair growth, but you can still use baking soda for hair loss. At best it will help with a little growth, at worst it will clean your hair and strengthen it.

To use it, simply mix the baking soda with water and then massage into your hair from the root to the tip. Leave it in your hair for a few minutes and then wash it off. You may begin to reverse hair loss immediately–assuming it works, that is.

Cedarwood Oil for Hair Loss

Baking Soda for Hair Loss

You can use cedarwood oil for hair loss because it is said to help stimulate the hair follicles, which in turn can help to promote growth. It does this by helping to increase circulation, which will help to supply the hair follicles with the nutrients they need.

Cedarwood oil is often used in combination with other oils, including rosemary oil and sage oil. Combined, these essential oils can be very powerful, but in all honesty, it’s unlikely that you will experience many results from them. This is definitely the case if you use cedarwood oil and the other oils by themselves.

However, as with the hair loss treatments mentioned above, while it might not help with hair growth, it can strengthen the hair and it will also smell rather unique. Other oils that are often used for hair growth, whether on their own or in combination with cedarwood oil include chamomile oil, lavender oil, lemon oil, thyme oil and peppermint.
