Hemp for hair? Does it work?
Hemp is the ultimate buzzword in beauty right now. But for all its benefits, the ingredient definitely throws up a whole lot of questions? What is hemp anyway? Is it the same as marijuana? Is it even legal? Well, here’s everything you need to know
What is Hemp?
The hemp plant is a variant of the cannabis plant, which in common terms would be referred to as ‘weed’ or marijuana. However, the hemp that is used in hair care, skincare and cosmetics has no psychoactive properties as it is devoid of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The hemp used in cosmetic and wellness products is procured by cold pressing the seeds after harvest.
Problems Hemp Hair Care Solves
We have finally woken up to the wonders of Hemp. Hemp Seed Oil is a rich source of a variety of vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamins E, C, and B3. Its high fatty acid content makes it perfect for maintaining sebum production on the scalp as well.
Here are some of the ways in which hemp seed oil benefits the hair:
- Promotes hair growth
- Moisturizes the hair
- thickens the hair
- Prevents water loss to protect the hair
- Revives damaged hair
- Adds shine
Hemp seeds are rich in polyunsaturated omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, in what some experts call the perfect ratio. This may contribute to the many hair benefits that people attribute to hemp and hemp seed oil in combating dry and frizzy hair.
When we found this we got to work and launched two ultimate hair care products that contain Hemp Seed Oil as the main ingredient. Our Super Hydrate Hair Cream is a leave-in intense conditioner for dull and dry hair. Apply it right after your shower on partially damp hair and see your rough tangles transform into silky smooth locks!
Follow it up with the Hemp Hold Hair Gel, a styling agent for your hair sans the usual side effects. It provides your hair with long-lasting hold and keeps it nourished. This duo is nothing but a miracle for dry, frizzy, and lifeless hair. You will not find any lurking toxins (just like any of our other products) and it is very gentle, even on young and sensitive skin.
Make this hit pair a part of your hair regime and bid adieu to all the dryness!
