Could the secret to thick, flowing tresses be as simple as adding cannabis to your hair care routine? Many believe it's true, and have the hair to prove it.

Here's how cannabis could help your hair grow healthier.

CANNABIS OIL FEEDS AND STRENGTHENS YOUR HAIR

Apply cannabis oil directly to your hair as a topical and your follicles will soak up an all-natural formula filled with beneficial proteins, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids including omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9. In addition to feeding and moisturising your hair, you'll stimulate hair growth as you massage the cannabis oil into your scalp. As you work your scalp with your fingertips, blood flow to the scalp increases.

Together, the nutrients and the massaging action boosts new hair growth, strengthens existing follicles, and prevents damaged strands from breaking.

MOISTURISES AND THICKENS WITHOUT GREASY RESIDUE

Cannabis oil quickly penetrates the hair shaft to lock in nutrients and moisture, but it doesn't leave behind a lot of heavy residue that can make your hair look greasy. The moisture inside the strand combined with a light coating of fatty acids on the outside plump up the strands for added volume and thickness.

CANNABIS OIL IMPROVES SCALP HEALTH TOO

It's impossible to have healthy hair without a healthy scalp. Cannabis oil can help here too. As you massage it into your scalp, it can help calm inflammation[1] and irritation, stimulate blood flow, and moisturise the skin to help with a multitude of problems including dryness, itchy skin, acne, fungal infections, and dandruff. It may even help improve psoriasis and dermatitis in some cases.

CANNABIS SPEEDS UP THE METABOLISM FOR FASTER HAIR GROWTH

Even if you don't apply cannabis oil directly to your hair, you may see faster hair growth if you smoke, vape, or ingest cannabis several times a week. That's because cannabis speeds up the metabolism. A faster metabolism digests food faster, burns calories faster, and grows hair faster. Just don't take this to the extreme; a metabolism that's excessively fast can make you age faster too.

LESS STRESS LEADS TO HEALTHIER HAIR

Stress isn't good for your health, period. And it can also wreak havoc on your hair. Frayed nerves not only make you feel like pulling your hair out, it can cause actual hair loss as well. Cannabis is a well-known stress-reliever, and can help many people experience a more restful night’s sleep.

WHAT KINDS OF CANNABIS HAIR PRODUCTS CAN I USE?

Cannabis has become so popular that you can find hair products at pharmacies that include the herb in their list of ingredients, usually in the form of legal hemp. Some even proudly display the ubiquitous multi-bladed leaf prominently on their label. However, these products usually only contain a small amount of active ingredients.

For a stronger formula, purchase cannabis-infused hair care products from a dispensary or speciality store, or make your own. Most basic cannabis oils can be massaged directly into your hair and scalp as long as they were made with a hair-friendly carrier oil. Cannabis oils made with hemp seed oil, argan oil, or olive oil are preferable to those made with butter or coconut oil.

SUMMARY

Cannabis oil supports hair health and promotes growth when used topically by supplying nutrients, moisturising and strengthening the hair shaft, and stimulating blood flow. By reducing inflammation and irritation, it also improves scalp health. Even if you simply enjoy cannabis recreationally, this can improve hair health by boosting the metabolism and reducing stress. If you would like to add cannabis to your beauty regimen, you can purchase commercial products that include the herb as an ingredient, or you can make your own.
