Here’s Three Ways To Make A CBD Hair Mask

25th June 2019

Using a hair mask can leave your hair feeling hydrated, shiny looking, and stronger. And the best thing? You can whip up your very own with the ingredients you have at home in your cupboard.. and of course some CBD.

Using a hair mask doesn’t have to take up hours of your time either  – most can be rinsed off in around 20 minutes or, and you could always set aside one evening a week to pamper yourself. Apply your mask, pour yourself a glass of wine and get ready for healthier hair.

How can CBD help your hair?

When most people think of CBD, hair treatment is probably the last thing that springs to mind. But, it turns out that the cannabis-derived ingredient has numerous properties that can aid growth in healthy hair, and some evidence also suggests it can help with hair loss.

CBD is rich in a number of amino acids, antioxidants, and fatty acids which are all known to naturally strengthen our locks. Included amino acids are the primary building blocks of protein which means they work to moisturise each strand and protect hair from drying out.

CBD oil in particular also contains fatty acids; omega-3, omega-6, omega-9, gamma linolenic acid (GLA). These have been shown to further prevent hair damage and promote growth, in fact if you take a look on the back of most upmarket hair products you’ll find at least one of these ingredients.

When it comes to hair loss, it’s CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties that make it a possible solution to hair loss. The chemical compound works by calming down inflamed cells, (which can restrict growth) as well as working as a moisturising agent, and controlling sebum production.
