March 31, 2023 · Cosmetics

Hemp seeds are the seeds of the cannabis sativa plant, which has many benefits for humans. For example, hemp seed oil has many benefits for your hair. Hemp seeds contain a variety of essential vitamins as well as many minerals like iron, zinc, and magnesium that can help protect your hair.

If you frequently dye and use straightening or curling irons or hair dryers, you can damage your hair, making it more porous and vulnerable to water’s wear. Too much water in your hair shaft can encourage breakage and overall damage. Including hemp seed oil in your hair routine can lubricate and protect the hair shafts, giving them a healthier and smoother look.

What are the properties of hemp oil for hair?

As mentioned before, there are many benefits of hemp seed oil for your hair, as they are full of nutrients, vitamins and minerals that can have immensely positive effects on the appearance and overall health of your hair. This hair-care product is a natural alternative to other oils in the market today. While many of these have artificially manufactured substances, you can obtain even better results by using hemp seed oil. 

Hemp seed oil is filled with polyunsaturated fatty acids involved in the absorption of essential vitamins. These healthy fats can also have incredible results on our hair, making it look luscious when applied regularly. But let’s review hemp seed oil’s properties and what their benefits are for hair. 

Moisturises hair

One of the main properties of hemp seed oil is fatty acids, specifically omega-3 and omega-6, which have a hydrophilic end, meaning they are attracted to water. Applying it to your hair helps with moisture retention. If you have curly and coarse hair, using a small amount on your strands can also help strengthen it. If you have straight hair, you can benefit from applying it as a treatment before washing.

Stimulates hair growth

As well as a moisturizing effect, the omega-3 and omega-6 present in hemp seed oil can help to manage hair loss by stimulating growth. Applying oil on your scalp increases blood circulation and nourishes your hair follicles. Studies also suggest that these fatty acids also help with thickness, making your hair look fuller and stronger. The amino acids present in hemp seeds can help balance your skin’s PH levels, regulating the production of sebum and stimulating growth. 

Strengthens hair

Vitamin E in hemp seed oil also helps to protect your hair against damaging environmental agents and hard chemicals present in many hair products. It helps your hair to obtain greater elasticity, and avoid breakage while making it look shiny. Plus, the fats, proteins and GLA acids also help with hair strengthening as well as with density, especially to prevent splitting ends. 

How should I apply hemp oil to my hair?

There are different ways of using hemp seed oil on your hair. For example, you can use pure hemp seed oil directly by applying and massaging a few drops on your scalp and hair. You can leave it overnight and wash it the next morning with a sulfate-free shampoo for best results. This will leave your hair silky and velvety.

You can also make hemp oil spray and use it as a detangler. To prepare the solution, grab a spray bottle and mix one cup of water, eight drops of hemp seed oil and one or two drops of your preferred essential oil to give it a nice aroma. Shake the bottle well and apply it to your hair. This will leave your hair feeling refreshed and healthy. Try it yourself and experience the benefits of hemp seed oil for your hair!
