In a recent survey by InStyle Magazine, 81 percent of women said that they feel their most confident when they’re having a good hair day. On the other hand, 71 percent of women said their hair was one of their biggest beauty concerns. If you find yourself looking in the mirror and finding your hair isn’t making you happy — you’re not alone.
There’s a wealth of information on the various ways that CBD can benefit the skin through its impact on the endocannabinoid system, but researchers believe it can help the hair in a similar way. Full-spectrum CBD oil is packed with nutrients that boost hair health, like Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils. Some studies have even shown it could help to reduce hair loss and possibly even stimulate regrowth.
So if you’re on the hunt for new products to liven up your summer hair-care routine and inject a little bounce in your bonnet, try CBD — and while you’re at it, check out these other, non-cannabinoid (but equally highly-rated) hair savers to round out the mix.
Apple Honey by Nixul CBD ($20)
PSA: You don’t always have to shell out big bucks to buy expensive hair treatments. Mix ½ cup of this CBD rich, organic honey with ¼ cup of good quality olive oil. Work the mixture into your scalp and leave it in for 2-3 hours before washing for a DIY hair mask that will keep your scalp hydrated and give your mane a silky sheen.
Argan Oil Heat Protector by HSI Professional ($14)
There’s not much point in spending lots of time and money on luxury hair treatments if you’re not preventing future daily damage too. Heated styling tools like curling and flat irons and even just the simple dryer can quite literally burn follicular ends, zap natural moisture and oils, and leave your hair dull and lifeless. This top-rated heat protection spray from HSI Professionals is a must for anyone who wants to keep using heated tools without damaging their hair.
Natural CBD Oil (Full Spectrum) by Premium Jane ($54)
Sometimes the best way to take care of your hair is from the inside out. Research suggests that a few drops of a full-spectrum CBD oil like this one, taken under the tongue, will help boost your endocannabinoid system and regulate the health of your skin and hair.
Hair Towel Waffle by Aquis ($22)
Roughly drying your hair with a towel can actually do more harm than good. It can break and rip the strands, increasing the appearance of split ends and causing frizziness. But a softer microfibre towel like the one sold by Aquis can absorb water better than most while also preventing damage to the hair.
Mary’s Elite Capsules by Mary’s Nutritionals ($90)
Another way to improve the condition of your hair from the inside out but without the — let’s face it — unpleasant CBD taste is to use a premium quality soft gel capsule. The capsules offered by Mary’s Nutrionals are vegan, gluten-free, and each contain 5mg of high quality CBD oil. Take one with your morning cup of coffee and go about your day.
Hemp Seed Oil Conditioner by Wise ($32)
This conditioner doesn’t contain CBD, but it is rich in fatty acids, essential oils and other nutrients that are found in hemp seeds. Use this as a part of your regular shower routine, or leave in overnight once a week for a super conditioning treatment.
Hair Styling Accessories Kit by Pixnor ($10)
Most of us spend so much time styling our hair into different looks that it stands to reason that the quality of the styling tools we use would have an impact on the condition of our hair. A styling kit like this one ensures that you’re using only the best quality tools everyday to maintain the condition of your hair while also creating gorgeous looks all year round.
