Can CBD benefit your hair?
It would appear that not only is CBD good for your mood, energy levels, pain and skin, research shows that CBD can now also benefit your hair. People are always looking for natural solutions to tame wild hair, moisturise dry hair, soothe the scalp and stimulate hair growth. CBD can help with all these issues.
Prevents hair loss and speeds up hair growth?
Millions of men and women around the world suffer from hair loss. This can result in loss of confidence and trigger mental health conditions. There are many reasons as to why people can lose their hair, but whatever the reason, it can have devastating effects. CBD oil is full of omega fatty acids such as Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9, that keep hair follicles full of moisture and nourish cuticles. This helps stimulate hair growth and creates long, luscious locks, combatting hair loss. CBD also increases blood circulation and flow around the hair follicles. This works when CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, elevating cerebral blood circulation. When this happens, nutrients reach the hair follicles and this also stimulates faster hair growth.
Moisturises a dry scalp and dry hair?
CBD oil can alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms of a dry scalp. Dandruff, eczema and psoriasis are all conditions of the skin that can occur on the scalp. The symptoms are usually itchiness, flakey, red skin and an inflamed scalp. Properties in CBD can connect to receptors in the body that decrease inflammation on the scalp. CBD oil can also help with dry hair. CBD contains 21 amino acids which are all essentially proteins. The hair on our head is made up of protein so CBD can help moisturise our manes.
Helps prevent hair damage and breakage?
There are a number of reasons as to why hair can become limp, dull and lifeless: styling products and tools, pollution and UV radiation, unhealthy lifestyle – just to name a few. As mentioned previously, the moisture that CBD can provide hair follicles is one of the best ways to restore damaged hair. It helps clean the scalp properly from chemicals that could potentially block follicles, stopping the hair from growing properly. The antioxidants present in CBD can repair and stop hair breakages.
How to use CBD for hair?
There are a few ways to use CBD when it comes to our locks. You can use a CBD-infused shampoo and/or conditioner when washing your hair. These are usually the easiest products to use if you want to incorporate CBD as a part of your hair health routine. CBD oil can also be applied directly to the scalp. Simply part the hair and place a few drops in the middle of the scalp before gently rubbing the oil into the skin and then washing as you normally would.
