Is Hemp oil good for my hair?
Yes! Hemp seed oil is a remarkable oil that is nearly identical to our own lipids. It can penetrate cells and nourish dry skin. This is a powerhouse plant that contains 80% essential fatty acids, vitamin D, and anti-inflammatory properties. Hemp seed oil is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and has skin regenerative properties. Hemp seed oil strengthens the hair’s structure, conditions, and improves hair’s elasticity while softening each strand.
Hemp seed oil internally
Taking hemp seed oil internally is a great way to help your hair and can be done so by taking supplements. It lessens hair shedding and stimulates hair growth. You can find supplements or you can create your own by buying empty gel capsules and filling them with the oil before ingesting (always consult your doctor before adding supplements to your regimen). You can also add the seeds or a few drops of oil to your smoothie.
Hemp seed oil externally
Whether using a few drops with your favorite conditioner for a moisturizing and softening cocktail or blended into a hair recipe, hemp seed oil is an asset to any hair care concoction. It is also excellent for eczema or dryness. The market is seeing a surge in products adding hemp seed oil to their formulas but many opt for DIY recipes to harness the benefits of hemp seed oil.
