You’ll be hard pressed to find any beauty product on the market that hasn’t yet been infused with CBD. Lip balm? Check. Face serums that promise to fight acne? Way ahead of you. Cannabis-infused mascara? One of the most popular beauty releases of the year. CBD infused products are the bread and butter of the beauty industry this season, with a cannabis-infused release of just about every product imaginable. So it’s no surprise that CBD hair products aren’t far behind. In our opinion, nutrient-dense CBD hair products are the unsung heroes of the CBD craze. Here’s why:

The Science Behind CBD
Cannabis, a medicinal herb, contains cannabinoids that can be divided into two categories: THC and CBD. THC is the one that carries hallucinatory properties while CBD contains the same antibacterial and antiviral properties without having an effect on the mind. Beauty brands are using CBD oil in products as a natural way to curb the production of excess sebum and reduce inflammation, all while delivering a healthy dose of vitamins.
CBD also includes all 20 known amino acids, as well as vitamins A, B, C, D, and E. Just like your skin, your scalp benefits from the production of collagen, and CBD can aid in strengthening and nourishing scalp tissue. CBD multitasks by reinforcing the integrity of your strands and improving strength and elasticity at the same time.
CBD is great for dry and brittle hair types as well as those with thinner hair and oily scalps. It aids in regulating sebum production in oily hair types and moisturizes those with thicker, coarser strands. Early studies also point to CBD aiding in hair growth, but there are no definitive statements on that yet. What’s truly unique about CBD hair products is the way they aid in scalp and hair health at the same time.
If you aren’t quite ready to take the leap into CBD-infused hair products, you can recreate the benefits at home. Start off by massaging your scalp with Nexxus Clean & Pure Scalp Scrub before washing your hair as you normally would. A scalp scrub stimulates hair growth and aids in getting rid of dead skin cells on the surface of the scalp. This helps pave the way for a healthier and more nourished scalp.
After you rinse out the scalp scrub and wash your hair, follow up with Dove Anti-Frizz Oil Therapy Hair Mask. This mask will provide a nutrient-dense dose of hair care for your strands similar to what CBD provides. While no product can completely recreate the benefits of CBD, these two will give your scalp and strands the leg-up you’re looking for.
