Hempseed Oil Can Reverse Hair Loss and Improve Damaged Hair


Hair loss. For some, it is a sensitive subject, yet at one time or another we all have experienced some type of hair loss or hair damage.

Hair loss, thinning hair, slow hair growth – these are all conditions that can be caused by many factors, including toxicity, illness, infection, chemical medical treatments, hormone imbalance, stress, and poor nutrition.

Another factor in weak, damaged, thin hair or hair loss is the absence of sufficient ceramides. Ceramides are fatty substances found in the skin and hair. Ceramides are comprised of 2 molecules – sphingosine (an amino alcohol) and a fatty acid.

Ceramides help the hair retain moisture and protein. This is especially useful for those who color or use heat on their hair.

GLA, also known as Omega 6 fatty acid, has been shown to help improve hair growth for some, as well as nourishing the hair so that it grows thicker and stronger.

Hempseed oil is an excellent source for GLA and ceramides. Hempseed oil has the perfect ratio of Omega fatty acids, and it is easily digestible.

Getting enough Omega fatty acids in the diet will help the hair, as well as using topical products that contain hempseed oil (shampoos, conditioners, hair tonics). Proper nutrition and sufficient nutrients are important for healthy hair (and skin).

Hempseed oil is an anti-inflammatory, and because some hair loss is due to inflammatory conditions, hempseed oil may be a good supplement for that reason as well.

Hempseed and hempseed oil are known to reduce blood pressure, help with circulation, and help heart disease. Medication dosage may be need to be reduced or closely monitored.

    Excellent post. Hemp oil can do wonders for skin, and it’s no surprise that it may also produce beautiful hair. Thanks for sharing!

    I have been giving myself hemp oil massages morning and night, as well as using it for oil-pulling. Within a few weeks of starting this regimen my eyebrows began to grow back. They were half gone and now they are 80% there! It’s very obvious. Also, My usually very gray hair roots have a lot more of my naturally dark hair in them. They used to be more gray than dark, and now they are nearly 50/50 in ratio. My eyes can’t lie.

    Can you recommend a good brand of Hemp Seed Oil? Very interested in trying it on my hair and skin, but not sure which is the best or purest. Thanks!

      You bet! Nutiva is an excellent brand, and Manitoba Harvest is just as good. These are the 2 main brands. I’ve used both, so with either of those you can’t go wrong :)

      B~

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a superb job with this.
    Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!
