Can CBD Shampoo Help with Hair Loss?

Can CBD Shampoo Help with Hair Loss?

Could CBD be a miracle solution to the problem of baldness and thin hair? Without going that far, it would seem, however, that its components play an active role in the treatment of hair loss. Let's see how CBD shampoo can come to the rescue from hair loss and thinning. 

The components of CBD that stimulate hair growth: 

Hemp seed oil has a particularly high level of fatty acids. Among them, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids as well as linoleic and gamma linoleic acids. It is also quite rich with amino acids and antioxidants. All of these nutrients are essential for healthy hair.

  1. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids

These  fatty acids (omega-3, omega-9, omega-6 and gamma linolenic acid GLA) are well known to people, because they are used in the composition of many nutritional supplements dedicated to hair growth. In addition, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), one of the main omega-6 fatty acids, seems to facilitate hair growth and density, thanks to its ability to enhance blood circulation in the scalp. However, our body does not produce these fatty acids. As a result, we need to find an external source of supply. Cannabis oil is therefore a good source of fatty acids beneficial for hair growth.

  1. CBD Amino acids

Our hair is mostly made up of keratin, a protein made of 18 different amino acids. However, the amino acids contained in CBD oil are extremely rich in protein. These are known for their effectiveness in providing good resistance to the hair follicles. Amino acids are also involved in the production of red blood cells which provide oxygen and nutrients to hair follicles. These acids thus play a protective role for the hair. They can be used in the treatment of hair loss, but also in prevention.

  1. CBD Antioxidants

CBD oil (Cannabidiol oil) is also rich in antioxidants, including vitamin A, vitamin E, calcium and magnesium. These antioxidants are particularly effective against the damage caused by free radicals, responsible for hair loss. By neutralizing the attacks of free radicals, they protect the scalp, the hair and play a role in regrowth. It would seem that they also participate in maintaining the shine of the hair.

CBD and baldness: what if we relieve stress!

Stress can cause many dysfunctions in our body. Among these inconveniences, hair loss. Indeed, stress promotes the active production of free radicals. These radicals in turn affect the scalp and lead to more or less rapid hair loss. Stress control through the intake of CBD could then also be a way to mitigate hair loss as a symptom of stress.  

Using a CBD hair Shampoo

Using a CBD shampoo can have a mild effect in slowing down hair loss and maintaining a healthy head of hair. 

  • In the shower, you should massage your scalp gently while you have the shampoo on your head to activate blood circulation.

  • So you can apply the CBD oil directly on your hair and on your scalp and then shampoo with a CBD shampoo

  •  You can mix CBD oil with your shampoo by adding a few drops into it. 

Regarding the dosage, not all people react in the same way to an external application of CBD. Start with one drop 3 times a day and then increase the dose gradually. You will need to test and observe improvements over time.

Bottom Line: 

There are some studies that suggest that CBD can be helpful, not to regain dream hair if you already have a bald head, but rather to stop hair loss and maintain healthy hair. It is a precious help in prevention, for those who fight against hair loss whether genetic or stress-related. However, more studies are needed to determine the extent in which CBD can actually help in hair growth.
