Hair Growth: Healing Scriptures for Hair Loss in the Bible

Asking God for more hair? You aren’t the first and won’t be the last person to do so.

God is about to answer your prayer for hair growth, all you need to do from here on is to read, receive, meditate, and believe in these powerful scriptures for hair growth that God has given you as His promise.

These bible verses for hair are what I will call healing scriptures for hair loss mainly because they reiterate that God wants you to be full of health, flourishing, and prospering in every area of your life 

But just before I delve into these scriptures about hair and what the Bible says about hair, hair loss, and hair growth; let’s first look at a few interesting scientific facts about hair.

Billions of Dollars Spent But Still No Solution

People spend over $8.5 billion on hair loss treatments each year all over the world. 

This is a remarkable figure that demonstrates how deeply individuals are affected by the situation and how desperate they are to find a solution.

But the truth is that there is now no cure for hair loss, nor is there a medication that causes hair to regrow.

But, according to science journalist Stephen Buranyi, the true cure, which is always “just around the corner,” has become the most perpetually delayed medical breakthrough.

However, according to Buranyi, some treatments are now promising.

But, before diving into them in-depth, it’s a good idea to first consider why baldness is such a difficult condition to fix.

Few Facts About Hair Science

The hair itself is simple: it is made up of dead cells that have been packed with a protein. But the follicles that produce hair are extremely complicated. Here are a few more facts

  • They are technically an organ, much like your heart or kidneys.
  • They’re highly specialized structures that emerge early in your life and can’t be replaced.
  • A fetus has already formed the five million hair follicles it will have for the rest of its life by week 22 (a little more than halfway through the gestation period).
  • The hair produced by these follicles might alter throughout time, for example, becoming thicker and darker during puberty. However, you will never be able to grow new follicles.
  • Treatments for baldness were promised even when we didn’t know much about how hair worked in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.
  • The majority of them are completely absurd.
  • Injections of testosterone and steroid were given and rubbed into the scalp. Electric shocks or vacuuming the region where you wished your hair to grow could also be used.
  • One Japanese pharmaceutical business even sold a music CD that was claimed to help people grow their hair.
  • Because there were so many fake “cure” products, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) explicitly banned any drug that purported to treat hair loss in the mid-1980s.

I am not a medical practitioner. And the information I’ve shared is basic biological information that anyone can read in the public domain. But choose to share that information with you to come to the conclusion that man and science will never have all the answers, and even if they do manage to find some solutions, it’s no guarantee that it will work.

God knows how the human body works, He created it, and as such, has the remedy for any deficiency in the human body. What that remedy is? His Word, God’s Word. Of which I will now share with you a few reassuring healing scriptures for hair loss for those suffering from this condition and who need help from on high.

Healing Scriptures for Hair Loss and Growth

The Word of God is amazing and a present helper in times of need. Just imagine that something (our hair) that would seem so insignificant is important to God and it has scriptures that speak about hair in the bible. How wonderful is that?

Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

What Does the Bible Say About Hair?

For a woman, hair, especially long is a sign or symbol of joy, glory, and beauty. On the contrary, if a woman cuts her hair, or has no hair, biblically, it’s a sign of rebellion. Read it here:

1 Corinthians 11:15 says, “But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering.”

See it says that the Woman’s hair is her glory? This means that God’s will is for daughters to have long, healthy, and radiant hair. If for any reason whatsoever you are struggling to grow long healthy hair, then use these healing scriptures in prayer to remind God what His Word says about His will for your hair.
