These days, it is as difficult to choose a hair care product as it is to select a college for babies not yet born. There is so much out there that is just bad, and half of it is the information. With these tips, we can agree that hemp shampoo and conditioner will be as good for us as we need.
Those who live in unusually hot or cold environments will benefit from hemp oil shampoo’s and conditioners' ability to fight the drying that comes with harsh climates. Hemp Seed Oil has Vitamin E and increases hair growth. And hemp hair care products help prevent hair loss by stimulating capillaries and thus improving blood flow. It also works well to prevent split ends and maintain the brightness of your hair color. The zinc your hair receives from hemp shampoo and conditioner can help prevent zinc deficiency – a common factor in hair loss.
Why Wash at All?
There’s a movement underway that advocates a shift away from washing hair with traditional shampoos. The premise behind it is that lather, rinse and repeat will make us look less like Maui and more like those creepy little coconut guys in “Moana.” The ancient Polynesians did not soap up with Pert, and we probably don’t need it either. However, there’s using less, and using none. Using fewer damaging hair care products helps to avoid stripping hair of its natural, protective oils. Not washing at all is just nasty. The good news is that there is a healthy middle ground.
More Good Stuff
The trick is to add the proper ingredients while avoiding the ones that suck–moisture out of hair and the scalp. Hemp shampoo has linoleic acid, which is fantastic for moisturizing and reducing inflammation. Using a natural shampoo is a little different than the mainstream products easily found at Walmart. They tend to lather a bit less, which encourages users to take a smaller amount and focus on the scalp (where most of the gross buildup of grease and dirt happens anyway). Natural oils return the moisture to the hair and discourage conditions like dry scalp.
Less Bad Stuff
Good, healthy ingredients can only do so much. To make a difference in hair, we also have to commit to avoiding some of the creepy additives that make shampoo and conditioner much worse for the body. We already know that fragrances and parabens are a mess, but even some natural ingredients like kelp are suspect. Remember the creepy girl from “The Ring” outside the well? Do you want hair like that? Well, water often contains traces of heavier metals, and kelp does too. People who wouldn’t bathe in mercury would do well to avoid watching “The Ring” and using conditioner with kelp. Fortunately, hemp conditioner is free of kelp, but has plenty of great fats to condition hair and leave it feeling silky.
Wash or not wash? The frequency is up to us to decide. With hemp conditioner and shampoo, we have the goods to make hair healthy and soft, without all the yucky stuff on the side.
Why Buy Kelp Free Haircare?
We, humans, tend to assume that just because something is natural, that must mean it is safe. Unfortunately, this is particularly the case with products we eat or put on our skin. However, just because it came straight from the ocean does not mean we should be slathering it on our skin several times a day. Kelp certainly has some health benefits, but it also poses some risks. Kelp has varying levels of iodine, a necessary nutrient. However, too much of it and the thyroid starts to wreak havoc on the endocrine system. The other problem is that Kelp comes from a source that tends to be high in heavy metals, and we are not talking about Black Sabbath or Pantera. In fact, kelp can have levels of mercury that rival some fish you already limit in your diet.
