What are the Benefits of Hemp Oil on Hair?

What's the best way to achieve soft, bouncy, and thick hair? Most women turn to specialty hair products to achieve those beautiful locks. But you can get beautiful hair with one simple ingredient: hemp oil.

Hemp oil has many benefits and these ingredients make your hair luxurious.

For example, hemp oil contains proteins, fatty acids, and nutrients. All of these ingredients result in healthy hair. Your scalp will also be healthier and less prone to irritation and itchiness.

Whether you use hemp shampoo or add hemp oil to your hair products, soak up the benefits of hemp oil. Here are a few reasons why you should use hemp oil on hair.

Moisturizes Your Hair and Scalp

Your hair needs moisture to maintain healthiness. If you're the type who washes your hair frequently, you need a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Dry climates and constant processing and color treatment will dry your hair out even more.

Hemp oil is extremely moisturizing.

It does this by absorbing hydration that sticks to your scalp and hair follicles. This moisture sticks to your hair so you have long-term hydration. There will be no residue and hemp oil doesn't weigh down hair.

If your hair is distressed and needs moisture, hemp oil on hair does the trick.

Stimulates Hair Growth

When you put hemp oil on hair, it helps your hair grow faster, thicker, and longer. Hemp oil contains fatty acids including Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9. These fatty acids help to stimulate hair growth.

The proteins in hemp also stimulate hair growth. Hair is made of keratin, which is 90% protein. The natural proteins in hemp will provide extra nutrition for your hair and will activate the keratin.

Vitamin E is also present in hemp oil. Vitamin E makes your hair softer and further increases hydration.

Hemp oil also stimulates hair growth because of blood circulation. It increases blood circulation in the scalp. This nourishes your hair follicles, stimulating growth.

Prevents Breakage

Breakage is awful. This is when hair becomes too dry. You develop split ends and other hair issues. Breakage looks embarrassing but it's also hard to treat.

But when you put hemp oil on your hair, managing breakage becomes easier. Hemp oil strengthens your hair. It does this by activating your hair's natural defense barrier.

The fatty acids, proteins, and gamma linoleic acid (GLA) help strengthen your hair. Your scalp and hair will become healthier and stronger, able to prevent breakage.

The moisturizing properties of hemp also help cure breakage symptoms, such as drying.

Lipids Help Your Hair

Hemp oil contains lipids. These help to add moisture and shine to your hair. But lipids also help strengthen hair follicles, especially weak and brittle strands. This strengthening helps give your hair more body.

When you continuously put hemp oil on hair, these lipids will continue to absorb. This will prevent long-term problems, such as hair loss and baldness.

Reduces Scalp Problems

Do you suffer from scalp problems?

A dry and itchy scalp is always uncomfortable. Dandruff looks unappealing but is also difficult to treat. Fortunately, putting hemp oil on hair helps treat a variety of scalp issues.

Hemp oil deters dandruff from forming. It also prevents itchiness and moisturizes your dry scalp.

If you're prone to scalp infections, hemp oil improves blood circulation and reduces inflammation. This helps protect your scalp from any infections.

How to Use Hemp Oil on Hair

There are a variety of ways to incorporate hemp oil into your hair routine. Specialty products are made with hemp oil, but you can also add drops of hemp oil to any hair product.

Hemp Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

The easiest way to incorporate hemp oil into your hair routine is by using a daily hemp shampoo and conditioner.

Hemp shampoo contains hemp and the powerful ingredients that will maintain healthy hair. Linoleic acid cleanses hair and treats the scalp, leaving hair silky and moisturized.

Hemp conditioner is packed with the natural vitamins, fatty acids, and lipids from hemp. This will leave you with softer hair. Some even contain extra ingredients such as shea butter and coconut oil.

Before you buy a certain product, make sure you read the packaging. Some brands promote their products with hemp, but it may have a small percentage of hemp and the rest of the ingredients are fillers.

Make sure hemp seed oil (some may say Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil) is one of the first on the ingredient list.

Create Hemp Oil Hair Products

You can also create homemade hemp oil hair products.

One of the best ways to moisturize your hair is with a hemp oil hair mask.

Combine hemp oil with ingredients such as bananas, avocado, green tea, egg, honey, olive oil, strawberry, lemon juice, aloe vera, papaya, or any essential oil of your choice.

Just combine the ingredients (some may require a blender) and smooth it over hair. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse.

Are you dyeing your hair? Add hemp oil to hair dye. Hemp oil makes a great dye base and is also moisturizing -- which you need after a good dye session. Hemp oil also makes color more vibrant.

Just mix hemp oil in a bowl with the dye. Mix it with a brush and apply the dye with the brush. Let it sit for an hour and rinse.

You can easily create your own hemp oil serum or spray. You can use hemp oil serum to detangle and give shine.

Just combine hemp oil, with tap water, rosewater or an essential oil of your choice. Mix in a bottle or spray bottle. Use as much as necessary.

Hemp Oil Alone

You can also use hemp oil alone.

You can do this in a variety of ways. To achieve the scalp benefits, massage a few drops of hemp oil and massage it into your hair (make sure hair is dry). It's recommended you do this at night and leave in the hemp oil overnight.

You can also eat hemp oil. The fatty acids, vitamins, and proteins will benefit your body as a whole. You'll see a change in your hair but also with your overall health.

Just take a tablespoon of hemp oil each day. You can also use it as a salad dressing or use it in different meals.
