If You’ve Already Blown $300 on Hair Treatments This Month, Don’t Read This — It’ll Make You Cry
Are you used to forking over $300 every two weeks to have luxurious, soft, and healthy hair? How about pocketing that money (and putting it towards that Bali vacation you’ve been planning)? Save money AND have your hair look all coiffed and spectacular by using CBD and hemp seed oil CBD products. It’s time to stop compromising on the richness and the strength of your locks by going all-natural (without spending a fortune).
Healthy hair is important.
It’s the kind of hair that makes those snooty play-date moms shower you with compliments while burning up with envy on the inside.
And let’s not forget — your flowing tresses have turned quite a few heads in the past.
So it’s vital to keep them going, right?
To paraphrase StacyK: “It doesn’t matter if your life is perfect as long as your hair is.”
Honestly, those ends look a bit frayed… but Beyonce can get away with anything, I guess.
The road to a gorgeous head of hair used to involve weekly solon visits. High gloss treatments, hair detox treatments, keratin treatments… you’ve tried it all. Even soaking your head in jojoba and coconut oil.
You can finally put all that behind you.
Today, all you need for stunning locks are two things — hemp seed oil and CBD oil.
The Difference Between Cannabidiol Oil & Hemp Seed Oil (& Why Both Are Great for Your Hair)
In the last couple of years, CBD (also known as cannabidiol or true hemp oil) has made its way into everything, from chocolate bars and pumpkin spice lattes to vapes and suppositories (don’t ask).
It’s become such a mainstream thing that even your grandma uses it for her arthritis. And a bunch of your friends have suspiciously started eating weird-looking gummy bears (that they won’t share).
When people notice me sneak-eating my CBD gummies. 🙄🙄🙄
This hemp-derived cannabinoid has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, both of which have prompted scientists to consider it as a treatment for a myriad of different symptoms. CBD’s biggest selling points are that it acts fast, promotes bodily homeostasis (so affects everything from the immune system to brain function), and doesn’t induce a high (unlike its close molecular cousin, THC).
Hemp seed oil, on the other hand, doesn’t contain CBD.
Since hemp seed oil is made from seeds (stalks and leaves are removed before processing), this leaves it with a very small percentage of cannabinoids. But, it’s also extremely rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids, as well as carotene, phospholipids, and other minerals that are essential for healthy hair.
So yes, including both CBD and hemp seed oil into your hair care routine will result in drop-dead gorgeous hair. Hair that’s vibrant, healthy, and strong. And it will help you cut down on those expensive salon treatments (half of which damage your hair anyway — looking at you, keratin).
CBD & Hemp Seed Oil for Hair Care — Here’s What Sheldon Coopers’ of the World Have to Say About It
Before I dive deep into why hemp seed oil and CBD are awesome hair care products, I want you to know one thing. I did my homework on this.
I sifted through hundreds of research papers (so you don’t have to) to confirm my gut feeling. And that’s that using CBD oil on my hair can result in awesomeness.
Researching the beneficial effects of CBD on hair like a pro!
And it will do the same for your hair.
While studies about CBD are still ongoing (lots of them), there’s enough evidence out there for me to comfortably advocate the use of CBD oil for healthy hair.
To save you some time, I’ll share a few of those studies with you. Because science rocks. (Well, not as much as your hair, but still…)
Let’s dig into it.
CBD Prevents Stress-Induced Hair Loss
Science tells us that hormones and stress both influence our hair (among other things). DHT (male sex hormone) causes make-pattern baldness. And cortisol (stress hormone) literally makes your follicles to shut down and huge strands of hair fall out.
What science also tells us is that CBD can help regulate the levels of DHT and cortisol. CBD acts like an anxiolytic, which means that it prevents excessive cortisol production. This keeps us grounded, calm, and relaxed. Without that extra cortisol rushing through your system, your hair follicles can do their thing — growing healthy strands of hair all day, every day.
CBD Keeps Your Scalp Healthy…
Dandruff, scalp flakiness, itchy head… there are so many things that can go wrong with the top of your head, it’s enough to make you pull out your hair, right? (Don’t do it!)
Scalp conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, or folliculitis affect hair growth. All of these conditions can lead to limp, dull hair. In those really ugly cases, they can even cause baldness.
But, CBD to the rescue once again…
As these scalp and skin conditions are caused by inflammation, CBDs anti-inflammatory properties are the perfect antidote for them. Scientists universally agree (which they do rarely), that CBD’s ability to treat systemic and localized inflammation is unparalleled in the world of natural remedies.
… And It Also Balances Serum Production
A lot of us are plagued by overactive sebum glands. These glands produce an oily, waxy substance that encases our skin and causes clogged pores and inflammation.
And if you have a sebum-y scalp, you’re going to have greasy hair, too.
Most of us fight this with every-God-damn-day hair-washing. Or we try to…
… but then life gets in the way, and we go out looking like we’ve dipped our head in a deep fryer.
The good news is that there’s a workaround. CBD can regulate sebum production, putting a cork in those overactive sebum glands. Every week, wash your hair with a CBD-infused shampoo once (I use Emera CBD shampoo), and it’s going to look more like actual hair and less like something you’ve used to clean the oven.
Every new ‘do looks better when not weighed down by scalp gunk.
Hemp Seed Oil — The Ultimate Hair Nourishment
Jojoba oil, coconut oil, raw goat milk… there’s no end to the $hit we’ll put on our hair to make it look all taken care of and shiny, right?
I mean, a couple of years back, I spent an hour with three egg yolks smeared all over my scalp!
But that hair needs nutrients, so what are you gonna do?
Well, for starters, you’re going to avoid egg yolk. (Seriously, the smell sticks with you.)
Instead of that (and a plethora of other oily products), you’re going to use a nutrient-rich hemp seed oil mask. (My go-to is the Wellness Premium Organic Hemp Seed Mask). Hemp seed oil is chock-full of Omega fatty acids and other vitamins and minerals that give your hair shine and volume. BUT… they don’t give you that greasy-looking build-up that you get with coconut oil.
Oodles of Elasticity, Shine & (Healthy) Moisture
For most women, water is the #1 enemy when it comes to hair.
Sounds weird, right?
But it’s true. Too much moisture makes longer hair heavier and more susceptible to breaking and splitting — and it’s a pain to comb out.
Hemp seed oil can help you protect your tresses by lubricating the shafts of hair strands. It also creates a barrier so that water wear is less likely to damage your follicles. It also makes your hair smoother and silkier, so it’s easier to run a comb through it (without staring at the business end of an awfully hairy brush once you’re done).
To give it that firmness, elasticity, and shine you’re used to getting from hair professionals, treat your hair with hemp seed oil daily. Just put a couple of drops on your fingertips, and run them over your scalp and the base of your hair. (I use Sephora Multipurpose Hempseed Oil, but most high-hemp-seed-content oils will do here).
What do you say — ready to give those greedy hair salons a wide berth? Ready to take spectacular care of your hair? Upgrade to CBD oil and hemp seed hair care products, and you can treat your hair as the superstar it is right there in your bathroom. Remember — it’s not the perfect life that matters. It’s perfect hair. And CBD can get you there.
