But despite some of the more risqué associations of hemp, hemp oil derived from the humble hemp seed actually holds many benefits for skin and hair.
Here’s our top 3 benefits of hemp.
“Oil have what she’s having…”
With a little help in the shape of hemp oil, your tresses can be the envy of all your female colleagues…
…ok ok, we can’t promise that, but we do know that hemp oil is high in Omega-3 and -6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (or PUFAs). Often called the ‘good fats’, these clever nutrients offer plenty of conditioning benefits for hair.
Our hair consists of mainly protein so natural hair care formulated with hemp, with its high composition of essential fatty acids and vitamin E gives you a great head start in helping your hair look and feel its best.
Its natural properties can help to prevent moisture loss from the hair and soften the scalp, making shampoos and conditioners formulated with hemp oil a very handy addition to your hair care armory.
If you’re looking to combat dry hair or to give your hair a helping hand in the strength department, it’s definitely worth a try.
Hemp skin is in!
PUFAs are also believed to help preserve the skin’s natural barrier against damaging environmental conditions. Surviving a typical winter in colder climates can be harsh on our skin and hair so if you’re looking to protect your skin against the elements, opt for skincare formulated with hemp oil brimming with these good fats.
Hemp oil is also adept at softening skin without leaving a greasy residue.
It smells great!
Ok, so you may well be on the receiving end of some strange looks if you say you love the smell of hemp but believe it or not, hemp oil actually has a very refreshing aroma.
Especially so when it’s blended with other naturally derived ingredients such as ginger or meadowfoam or with pure essential oils such as lemongrass, mandarin, and grapefruit. These are great complementary ingredients for an overall revitalizing combination…
