As fashion dictates, so much in our present culture can influence the products we use. Even products we use on our hair. But whether you wear hair or not, we should all be concerned with the various chemicals, compounds, and formulas that can be found in our shampoos, hair dyes, and conditioners.
Have you read about CBD Shampoos?
According to this recent Huffing Post article, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that there are shampoos being sold these days infused with the seeming wonder compound, CBD. But will these products do as they claim; improve hair moisture and hair growth, reduce inflammation, aid in scalp dryness, maybe even help in hair loss?
CBD or cannabidiol is a chemical found in the cannabis plant. However, it doesn’t contain THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana that gets one ‘high.’ As we all know by now, many products sold today are infused with CBD. These products, from water infused with CBD to CBD ‘gummies,’ salves and teas, and so much more, make claims of countless restorative properties.
Specifically, when it comes to shampoos and the like, CBD interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors found on the scalp and in hair. Since it has been proven that CBD can reduce inflammation, it’s believed that through its interaction with these hair receptors, CBD could theoretically battle dandruff, eczema, and other scalp problems.
CBD has also been known to increase circulation. This is especially interesting to people with thinning hair as a key in both hair growth, and properly nourished hair is indeed increasing scalp circulation.
But further reports indicate that it might be all the other good stuff mixed into these shampoos (healthy hair vitamins, oils, etc.) that as much add to increased hair health as CBD. Or these ingredients in conjunction with the CBD create the benefits.
Whether you wear a Guci Image male CTR unit, or one of our extensions or wigs (or come to us for so many other hair restoration solutions), or you are lucky to still have your natural long locks, you should always be careful to read the labels on your shampoos, conditioners, and dyes. CBD or not, what you use on your hair and what penetrates your scalp matters.
