Hemp Oil For Good Hair: What You Need To Know

Scientific research has confirmed several health benefits of hemp oil and its ability to promote hair growth. People have started applying it to their scalp and salons add hemp oil hair treatment to their list of services. It is also considered a recommended hair care product in some states where CBD oil is legalized.

What Is Hemp Oil?

Hemp oil is an extract from the plant that is packed with anti-inflammatory properties and the abilities to prevent wrinkles, alleviate dementia and heal psoriasis among others. According to Medical News Today, the production of hemp oil involves only the seeds from the Cannabis sativa plant that has a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids and bioactive compounds.

Scalp Benefits

As per mindbodygreen, it has also been used as hair treatment in some salons. This is due to the cannabidiol content that is good for the scalp and promotes hair health. There is a lack of research that confirms its health benefits to the scalp, but there are studies that have shown how it alleviates psoriasis and eczema. A review published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine noted that hemp oil strengthens the skin and protects it from infections. These functions were linked to its ability to improve scalp health.

Hair Growth

There is also a lack of evidence to support its reported ability to promote hair growth. Health specialists, however, continue to recommend it to those who suffer from hair loss. Its high omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid content is said to help prevent hair loss especially if taken in high doses. Previous research had shown that oral omega supplements taken within six months improved hair diameter and density of patients and this is said to be a possible effect of hemp oil to the hair.

Hemp Oil Hair Products

 The Lord Jones Royal Oil is made with high CBD hemp extract and pure grapeseed oil. Dilute it in coconut oil and massage it on your scalp. Leave it as a hair mask before rinsing off.

Another recommended product is the CBD Shampoo that also contains high CBD hemp oil for optimum hair care.
