Over the last week, I have been researching the benefits of CBD oil and how this golden oil can benefit your hair. After a lot of research, I was surprised to find that there is not a lot of products on the market that involve hair care.
There is a lot of product with hemp oil but hemp oil is different from CBD oil. Hemp oil is the seeds of the cannabis plant and the oil is extracted by crushing the seeds.
CBD is extracted differently. CBD is one of many cannabinoids and is extracted from the leaves and stalks of the cannabis plant but in its natural state, it has high levels THC this is the stuff that makes you as high as a kite.
Now CBD in its natural state is not legal so the THC has to be extracted useing a technique where CO2 is used to get rid of the THC leaving CBD oil which then is mixed with different oils such as coconut oil (MCT oil ) this Is then safe to bottle and comes in different strengths.
I have been working with a company called Puregenics where they have naturally mastered the procedure and is farmed in Spain where the conditions are much better than the UK.
Puregenics is new to the market but can offer premium oils and better strengths than your local drugstore.
Now, what has this got to do with hair?
Well here come the benefits of CBD oil...
Now CBD oil is taken internally and dropped under the tongue where it is absorbed into your body giving you a calmer state of mind and can help with anxiety depression and much more CBD oil is still in the early days of research and there are lots more scientific studies going on behind the scene so you can expect to see CBD oil in a lot of products in the future.
Now the benefits for hair are amazing and as I could not get hold of a product with CBD oil I decided to make my own using my starter bottle of oil from Puregenics and making it into a hair balm we can come back to that later.
CBD oil is High in vitamin E and fatty acids, CBD Oil nourishes the scalp and strengthens hair so this is good for you over bleachers. CBD oil also encourages hair growth and is full of omega-3, omega-6 and the omega-9 acids, which scientific research has said it can help improve the quality of the scalp tissue.
Stronger scalp tissue means the hair follicles are able to expand meaning only one thing longer healthier hair. (AMAZING)
Now as I said earlier I was not able to find a product on the market that I could test and be happy with the results so I used my own using natural ingredients and 100mg of CBD oil provided by Puregenics. I will leave a link below for more information. Now let me put out there I am not a chemist or a scientist I just love testing and researching products and if you have read my blog you know I like to mess around in the kitchen.
To make my balm I used 100% natural ingredients from livemore as you can buy cosmetic grade produce. So I used avocado butter, pressed coconut oil, 100mg of CBD oil which is 1ml out of a 1000mg of strength from a 10ml starter bottle and to add an extra calming and relaxing element some natural lavender oil. I mixed this all together in a glass bowl after measuring out what I needed and gently heated and I was left with a golden oil once cooled to room temperature it becomes a balm very similar to a lip balm. I then used this product for a week and my hair did feel different.
I thought my hair would feel greasy but it went on beautifully as when it touches your fingers it melts leaving it easy to apply sinking into my hair effortlessly and my hair has been through the mills recently soon as lockdown boredom made me do all sort of naughty things to my hair.
I did find my hair was stronger and shiney my scalp I feel is heathy for the experience and seems weirdly softer then usual which can only be a good thing.
To sum it up I am excited for the future of CBD oil and I will continue to use pure genics amazing CBD oil internally and externally in the future.
