CBD & Hair Health

What Causes Hair and Scalp Issues?

Your hair starts growing in the root of your follicle. This root is made up of cells and proteins that promote hair growth. Blood vessels supply the root with food for your scalp. As your hair is pushed through your skin, it passes an oil gland that adds oil to your hair. Because hair follicles don’t all grow hair at the same time, you will lose approximately 50-100 hairs per day. After a hair falls out, this follicle will take a break and not immediately re grow a new hair. Oiliness, dandruff, and scalp irritation are the main contributors to thinning, dry, and gray hair. This is because it hinders the productivity of your hair follicles by weakening them and clogging them up.

How can CBD help?

CBD can help keep your hair from falling out as well as promote regrowth because it makes your hair follicles healthier and stronger. Here’s how it works:

Vitamin E

CBD is known to condition your scalp and your hair. Together Vitamin-E and the fatty acids in CBD oil can work as an emollient meaning that they stop water loss while offering a softening effect on your hair. Vitamin E helps to get rid of dandruff that clogs your hair follicles especially the oily, waxy, and dry kind.

Fatty Acids

The fatty acids in CBD promote growth. This is because fatty acids are proteins much like what the roots of our follicle produce. These fatty acids help feed the follicle and allow the hair to continue growing.

Omega Vitamins

CBD has omega 3, omega 6, and omega 9 which improve scalp tissue. The stronger your scalp tissue is, the faster follicles expand and grow.

Linolenic and Gamma Linolenic acid

These acids help sustain normal hair growth. This means that instead of your hair stopping growing after a few months, CBD will help it grow for longer amounts of time.

Pigment Cells

Because CBD contains fatty acids and Linolenic acid and Gamma Linolenic acid, it helps keep cells healthy. These acids are food for your scalp cells. As you use CBD oil on your hair and scalp, cells are strengthened including pigment cells within the hair follicle preventing the destruction of pigment cells, therefore preventing greying.

Normalizes Your Scalp

Things like straightening your hair, blow drying your hair, washing, and even putting hairspray in your hair all throw the balance of oils on your scalp off. The things we do to our scalp and hair daily can wreak havoc on our hair follicles thus contributing to an increase in hair loss, dandruff and greying.

CBD has been known to add to hair growth in several different ways. The reason for better hair growth is the content of omega-9, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acid. These ingredients are very important when it comes to cleansing hair and stimulating hair growth.  They help to balance your body’s natural scalp oils and keep dandruff production down. They also help to add strength, prevent breakage and keep hair from going gray.

It doesn’t matter if you dye your hair or are always teasing it.  No matter how much heat you apply to your hair, or how many times you brush it, CBD can keep your hair extremely healthy and keep it from breaking, causing fewer split ends and frizziness.
