Benefits of CBD for Hair

CBD is the darling of the beauty industry at the moment. If you’re like us you’re intrigued by the hemp plant-derived cannabidiol. We know that CBD can benefit those with anxiety. There are also claims that CBD can smooth wrinkles, hydrate, and even get rid of acne. The scientific jury is still out on substantiating those claims, but what we do know is that CBD has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. So how can those properties benefit hair? To get more information on how CBD might be able to benefit our hair and help with hair loss, we talked with Michelle Henry, MD, a board-certified dermatologist, Harvard-trained Mohs surgeon, and Cantu Partner.

Hair Type Considerations

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of using CBD for hair loss. We want to share the differences between CBD and hemp seed oil. These are two variations of Cannabis sativa that are both hitting the skin and hair care market. They each have anti-inflammatory properties, but they are created differently. On the one hand, CBD oil is derived from the stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant which means there are higher concentrations of CBD in its makeup. On the other hand, hemp seed oil is made from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant.

CBD was a popular trend in 2019, with it being added to all sorts of products. With the stress 2020 is causing so far, interest in CBD has only increased. That leads to a lot of questions about CBD and hair loss.

Can You Put CBD Oil on Your Scalp?

Hair loss has many causes so even without studies, it’s unlikely that CBD would cure all forms of hair loss. Because of its calming effects, CBD seems most likely to help stress-related hair loss. It might even help hair loss due to nutrient deficiency, so long as it’s a nutrient CBD contains.
