A growing number of people are taking CBD for various purposes due to recent studies on the substance and growing knowledge about this ingredient. One of the most common uses of CBD is in cosmetics, in the form of CBD creams or CBD oils.
This article will tell you everything you need to know about CBD Oil for hair. We are going to start by learning more about CBD, and we will also analyze the benefits of CBD on hair and how to use CBD oils.
What is CBD?
CBD is one of the components of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant. Cannabis contains a number of substances that influence the human body, including the nervous and immunological systems.
Among the cannabinoids found in cannabis, the two most studied components are CBD and THC. However, THC has psychotropic effects and can lead to addiction, making it illegal to use except under medical supervision; in contrast, CBD does not have these effects or can lead to addiction.
For the time being, CBD has been found to have therapeutic properties in reducing stress, improving concentration and sleep, treating certain pains (including chronic pain), and reducing inflammation, among other properties.
In recent years, some studies on its efficacy for hair care have been conducted, though in a lesser amount than other studies that focus on different applications.
Benefits of CBD on hair
CBD contains a healthy combination of fatty and amino acids, such as Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9. These promote hair growth and also double as a moisturizer. CBD acts on the hair follicles and improves the scalp for healthy scalp growth, preventing brittle hair.
CBD is also rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are important to prevent damage to the hair and the rest of the body.
In addition, CBD can help stop skin build-up on the scalp and prevent flaking associated with conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis. And it helps smooth our hair no matter the type. It doesn’t matter if it’s curly, straight, wavy, fine, brittle, or damaged.
It also provides some beneficial nutrients that help moisturize the skin of the scalp. Many people shampoo their hair daily but avoid using conditioner because it can leave their hair greasy. However, this can cause the scalp to become drier. In all these cases, using CBD oil or other CBD hair products helps keep hair clean and moisturized.
Finally, another benefit observed with CBD in the hair is that it increases blood flow. When the blood flow in the hair follicles increases, our hair will have more oxygen and nutrients to help it grow and stay healthy.
How to use CBD oil to enjoy its benefits?
One of the products that can be used especially for hair care is CBD seed oils, which have some special properties.
It should be noted that, unlike some other products that are obtained from the distillation of the hemp flower, CBD oil is obtained by pressing the hemp seeds, just as it is done with other types of oils extracted from seeds, such as sunflower oil.
CBD oil has a high percentage of polyunsaturated fats and other nutritious active ingredients such as Omega 3 and 6. When we apply CBD oil to our scalp or skin, it helps to keep it healthy, hydrated, and nourished.
Although there are still some studies to be done and things to learn about the positive effects of CBD on our hair (and beneficial effects may continue to be known in the future), we have been able to verify all of the benefits that CBD products, particularly CBD oil, have for hair growth, health, and hydration.
