Hemp oil is extracted from hemp seeds, which come from the cannabis plant. This clear oil is packed with nutrients that are beneficial to the hair when applied topically. According to Beauty by Nature, hemp seed oil penetrates the skin better and is far less sticky than other vegetable oils. This makes it a popular choice of oil for use in cosmetics and hair-care products.

Promotes Healthy, Thick Hair – And Then Some

Hemp oil is packed with lipids, which add moisture and shine to your hair. The oil helps to strengthen fragile strands, give your hair body and may even make your hair thicker. It can also help promote new hair growth and prevent hair loss from taking place. (See References 1, 2 and 3)

Reduces Scalp Problems

Using hemp oil topically in the hair and scalp can reduce many scalp problems. It can relieve itchiness and dryness in the scalp and deter dandruff from forming. Hemp oil improves blood circulation and reduces inflammation, which helps to keep scalp infections away. (See References 1,2 and 3)
