cbd oil for hair care

Once it’s all massaged in, I sat under a heater for 20 minutes to ensure the mix penetrated to maximum effect. I was presented with a freshly brewed pot of Spirit of Hemp tea to enjoy whilst it developed. The Hemp Flower tea was brimming with CBDA and Flavonoids which I was told helps to reduce inflammation and offer protection from chronic and age-related diseases.

CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is one of 104 chemical compounds found in the marijuana plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive substance found in cannabis but unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.

While the distinctly weedy smell of the CBD means it wouldn’t be my massage oil of choice, the excellent double massage more than made up for it.

While one therapist spent an intensely relaxing ten minutes massaging all that oily goodness into my scalp, neck and temples, another treated me to a wonderful hand massage (there’s a choice between optional hand and foot massage at this point), again using CBD oil.

Hari, Founder of Hari’s hairdressers, is convinced of its benefits for hair. “CBD increases blood circulation therefore when used in our in-salon, Hari’s CBD Life Force Hair Treatment, it promotes hair growth and healthy hair production,” he says. “In addition, the CBD Oil balances sebum production so it’s great for both oily and dry or problem scalps helping to address a variety of hair and scalp complaints.”

Holland and Barrett were the first UK retailer to stock a CBD oil back in January of this year, and since then, several low concentration versions of cannabis oil (and products containing cannabis oil) have hit the shelves of British pharmacies.

It’s also understood to contain good levels of linoleic and gamma linoleic acid (GLA) – essential fatty acids which promote the maintenance of normal hair growth.

Hari’s have partnered with a specialist CBD oil brand called Spirit of Hemp to create a unique treatment. Spirit of Hemp’s products are unusual in that they contain a combination of pure, raw CBD oil combined with CBDA oil, which is essentially CBD before it’s heated and treated. CBDA is a more potent compound, so the logic is that you need less of it to feel the therapeutic effects.

So what happens in the treatment at Hari’s?
