Do You Really Need CBD in Your Shampoo, Too?


Do You Really Need CBD in Your Shampoo, Too?

CBD haircare seems to be all the buzz this year, and it begs the question: Do You Really Need CBD in Your Shampoo, Too?

Over the past couple of years, major and minor beauty labels like Lord Jones have been marketing the extreme benefits of CBD in their skin-care products.

CBD face oils, serums, lotions and potions are front and centre everywhere you go.

In fact, even Sephora created its own CBD standards in beauty and skincare!

Then comes the hair care – and it’s everywhere from drug store shelves to high-end salons and everything in between.

So how can you navigate this new world of beauty and hair care?

How Do You Pick Hair Products That Actually Work?

When looking for high-quality CBD shampoo, specifically, you’ll want to make sure that:

  1. CBD oil is one of the main ingredients
  2. Lab-tests are easily accessible
  3. Hemp is grown sustainably
  4. There’s not a bunch of filler in the shampoo
  5. Good reviews!

Does CBD Shampoo Work?

Phytocompounds from the hemp plant, including CBD, can connect to CB1 and CB2 receptors in our body, reducing inflammatory cytokines in the scalp. 

Cytokines are molecules that signal, mediate, and regulate immunity, and inflammation.

Because of this, CBD works WITH cytokines to improve a flaky, itchy scalp, dandruff, dermatitis, and eczema.

Can CBD Oil Treat Thinning Hair?

Because of its calming and anti-inflammatory effects, CBD helps stress-related hair loss in men and women.

Another recent study strongly suggests that the cannabinoid system is a key player in cell growth control.
