Benefits of CBD for Healthy Hair
Everyone loves having a good hair day. But with dry, damaged hair, it can feel unattainable. Factors like stress, dry weather, diet, scalp conditions, heat damage, or chemical exposure can wreak havoc on hair. Don’t despair – CBD can bring back the good hair days!
Packed with vitamin E and fatty amino acids, CBD has the power to revive stressed out strands. All-natural healing by strengthening follicles, hydrating, enhancing collagen and elastin in the hair, and balancing scalp health.
In Skyline Isolations CBD oil, you get the combined healing powers of CBD and avocado oil. Avocados also have rich moisturizing properties for hair with vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as biotin, potassium, lutein, oleic acid, and omega-3 fatty acids. (1)
No more parched hair! The fatty acids (2) in the CBD and avocado oil help to retain moisture loss and keep hair well hydrated. Both oils actually penetrate the hair shaft and are quickly absorbed so hair isn’t left coated and wet.
Split ends are just the start. Brittle hair breaks easily and continues to weaken. Extremely damaged hair will develop cracks in the outer cuticle layer then breakage happens. Hair may become dull or frizzy.
To avoid damage, coating the hair with a thin layer of oil can make it more flexible. The proteins in CBD strengthen scalp tissue and follicles on a cellular level as it is absorbed. Scalp health is directly linked to hair quality (3).
Protection and Damage Repair
CBD oil has gamma linolenic acid (GLA) (4) and other proteins that help strengthen hair, producing a protective layer to prevent further damage and repair.
CBD is also high in antioxidants including vitamins A, C, and E. These antioxidants protect against cell damage including environmental damage like dryness or frizz (5).
Avocado oil contains vitamin E as well, which can heal damage done by the sun’s rays. Vitamin E has an important protective effect on the skin (6). It helps with general hair repair and protection.
CBD delivers powerful healing to skin, nourishing and hydrating. It’s regenerative for the skin, so it helps the scalp maintain balance with blood circulation and sloughing dandruff or irritated hair follicles.
Using CBD oil topically can aid scalp conditions such as eczema, seborrhoeic dermatitis, or psoriasis. It offers therapeutic value for psoriasis by slowing the overgrowth of certain skin cells (7).
CBD is extremely effective in soothing these skin conditions because of strong anti-inflammatory properties. Our topical salve offers the same relief in a smooth body moisturizer.
Stimulate Hair Growth
Trying to grow out a haircut? Dreaming of longer locks? CBD can help you grow hair faster.
The omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, and vitamin E found naturally in CBD all help to stimulate hair growth. The vitamin D present in avocado oil also stimulates hair follicles.
Hair is made of the protein keratin. When you massage CBD oil directly onto your scalp, it fills hair follicles with all these beneficial nutrients (including proteins) which help to build more keratin.
As stated before, CBD promotes good blood circulation in the scalp which also contributes to healthy hair growth.
How to Use CBD Oil on Hair
Give yourself a scalp massage and apply in circular motions, working to the ends of your hair. This will give you the full benefits instead of just applying to strands.
Twist your ends with a small amount to prevent split ends.
Make your own hair mask by combining CBD oil with coconut oil. Massage into scalp and throughout hair then let it sit for 15-20 minutes (under heat, if you wish) before rinsing off.
Eating CBD for Hair Health
Wellness comes from within! Everything you eat and drink affects your hair and overall health. Consume CBD orally or on your favorite food to reap the benefits internally. Your body will still process the proteins and other nutrients and have a positive influence on your hair health.
