CBD Shampoo: Smooth Locks and Less Knots

CBD seems to be popping up in products everywhere! What's next? CBD oil for hair? Well, yes, actually.

While few studies have been done on the effects of these products, current research and anecdotal evidence support the alleged anti-inflammatory properties of CBD oil and indicate that it could reduce topical irritation and inflammation 1 Cannabidiol exerts sebostatic and antiinflammatory effects on human sebocytes.

Users of CBD hair goods have described powerful benefits, including more shine, taming frizz, as well as longer and thicker hair growth from the added nutrients. According to Zoe Weiner, who started washing her hair with CBD shampoo and conditioner, her hair has never been softer.

How do I shop for CBD hair products?

Be conscious when shopping for CBD hair items. A lot of products and brands want to be marketed under the cannabis or CBD umbrella, including hemp shampoo and conditioner, which are made with oil from hemp seeds and contain little to no CBD 9 Labeling accuracy of cannabidiol extracts sold online. Bonn-Miller, M. O., Loflin, M. J., Thomas, B. F., Marcu, J. P., Hyke, T., & Vandrey, R. (2017). Labeling accuracy of cannabidiol extracts sold online. Jama, 318(17), 1708-1709. Bonn-Miller, M. O., Loflin, M. J., Thomas, B. F., Marcu, J. P., Hyke, T., & Vandrey, R. . Hemp seed oil does come with its own benefits, but it doesn’t have the same properties as CBD. So, even if you see a cannabis plant on the label, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it contains CBD.

What are the typical ingredients?

Many CBD hair products also contain hemp seed oil for an extra boost of hydration and nourishment. They also tend to contain other oils such as peppermint, argan, or avocado. You can expect to see other typical shampoo ingredients like aqua, fragrance, and proteins. FYI, “aqua” is the fancy way cosmetic companies say “water” and not the pop group from the 90s.

Can I use CBD oil directly on my head?

Yes. If you prefer to use the oil directly, rather than infused products, you can simply add CBD oil onto your scalp and massage for a few minutes. However, oil is oil, and could leave your hair looking greasy.

Ok, I’m in. How do I use CBD hair products?

Using CBD shampoo and conditioner is no different than any other hair stuff. Hop in the shower or bathtub to wet your hair, squeeze out a dime-sized amount into your hand, lather up, rinse out, and repeat with conditioner.

What are the typical ingredients?

Many CBD items for hair also contain hemp seed oil for an extra boost of hydration and nourishment. They also tend to contain other oils such as peppermint, argan, or avocado. You can expect to see other typical shampoo ingredients like aqua, fragrance, and proteins like keratin and collagen.

Although the science is still out on CBD haircare, you may find the products smell good and give your hair a nice sheen. They may even help you with any scalp ailments. And who knows, you might feel like you’re in a shampoo commercial every time you lather up.
