Why you should choose CBD-based hair products?
In the past, doctors and local healers often prescribed cannabis to their patients for various medical issues – wound healing, relief from depression and many other uses. From the ancient civilization of Egypt to the revered era of India’s powerful physicians, this miraculous plant was used extensively and was considered not only a medicinal but also a sacred herb. In modern times, biologists, researchers and enthusiastic amateurs all over the world are trying to discover its beneficial properties and benefits.
CBD, for those who may be hearing it for the first time, basically means cannabidiol, which is a substance found in the cannabis sativa plant. It is the second most common extract of the
plant and is non-psychoactive. Aside from the benefits that CBD is best known for, such as reducing pain, inflammation and muscle soreness, it is especially beneficial for our hair and scalp.
In this article, you’ll discover the direct benefits you didn’t know CBD has for your hair.
1. Contains amino-acids that are beneficial for hair growth
CBD oil consists of all the essential amino acids needed by the human body, and in particular Omega 3 and Omega 6 – which are essential for hair growth. In addition, our ADV Cosmetics
products contain all of these beneficial ingredients!
2. Helps to improve a healthy hair scalp
The overall quality of your hair depends on the health of the hair follicle. Thus, a healthy scalp results in healthier hair. CBD helps in smooth blood circulation of the scalp and ensures that the hair follicles are well supplied with the necessary nutrients. This can lead to stronger and lusher hair.
3. Contributes drastically to the reduction of hair loss
Scientists and researchers believe that CBD may also help reduce hair loss by reducing stress – which is considered a major factor in alopecia. Thus, as a research study conducted in 2010
showed, CBD can help relieve stress, strengthen hair and help inhibit hair loss.
4. Stronger and healthier hair
Cannabidiol, contains amino acids that help infuse collagen and elastin into the body. These
are vital for hair strength and resilience. Collagen is by far the most abundant protein in the human body and is directly responsible for the care of many tissue cells, including skin and hair. It keeps hair follicles stronger and healthier.
Elastin, as its name suggests, is responsible for maintaining the shape and elasticity of hair, thus reducing hair breakage and as a result, hair loss.
5. Πιο πυκνά και γεμάτα μαλλιά
Apart from the fact that it reduces hair breakage and subsequently hair loss, the collagen contained in CBD helps to swell the hair and increase the diameter of each hair, resulting in
fuller and thicker hair.
6. Protects against strong environmental hazards
Hair is one of the most exposed parts of our body to harmful UV rays, dust and pollution. All of this exposure can cause hair to become excessively dry and weaken over time.
CBD contains high levels of antioxidants that help combat the effects of these environmental hazards, helping hair stay protected. In addition, the essential fatty acids in CBD keep hair hydrated and protect it from excessive dryness. These nutrients combined with the beneficial effects of vitamins such as A, B, C, D and E, among others, offer a plethora of positive effects for your hair.
7. Helps to maintain the color of the hair
CBD contains the amino acid tyrosine, which is known to help maintain the natural color of hair. Thus, the hair color stays vibrant for a longer period of time. Using tyrosine in combination with a simple vitamin C (supplement or topical) can have great benefits for skin and hair!
