It’s no secret that Will and I are hemp advocates and believe in its ability to transform the health of the body from the inside out. This is exactly why we decided to infuse each of our products with hemp oil so that healing can operate at every step of the hair and body care journey.
Just to provide a little context about what hemp oil is and where it comes from, hemp oil is cold pressed and obtained from the hemp seed. Hemp is known to be a species of one of the Cannabis sativa plants. It is often confused with marijuana as both are scientifically classified as cannabis. Contrary to popular belief, hemp does not carry tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is the psychoactive property found in marijuana, which makes hemp a safe natural product which actually has been used for thousands of years.
Hemp oil is naturally loaded with healthy unsaturated fatty acids similar to those in food items such as avocados, soybeans, and olives. Additionally, hemp oil is rich in Vitamin E antioxidants, minerals, microelements, protein, and linoleic acid. Research shows that hemp is of high nutritional value because of the ratios of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids which actually match the chemistry balance of the human body. In addition to these fatty acids, this oil consists of multiple vitamins, proteins and nutrients essential for healthy hair.
I’m sure you’re wondering, “this is all great scientific data, but in what ways does Hemp oil actually promote healthy hair?” Well let’s go down the list.
1. Hemp Oil Prevents Hair Breakage
The most common complaint we hear from folks who are looking to repair hair damage, is “my hair is weak and breaks off very easily.” When hair is excessively dry or exposed to harsh elements, it breaks.
Hemp oil is the best healing asset for breakage prevention due to its strengthening properties. It can help maintain hair’s natural texture and makes the scalp livelier to better support the hair. Try our Naturel Daily Moisturizing Spray after steamy showers to keep the hair strong and prevent breakage.
2. Hemp Oil Moisturizes the Hair & Scalp
This is a major key alert that many folks miss! A lively, healthy scalp is what truly supports healthy hair. Additionally, hair requires a sufficient amount of moisture to maintain its health and luster.
Hemp oil has amazing moisturizing properties as it prevents water loss and injects moisture into the hair and scalp. The DāO Vitalise Scalp and Skin Balm is infused with Hemp and other amazing ingredients such as Chamomile and Mango seed butter to strengthen the base for healthy, moisturized hair.
3. Hemp Oil Stimulates Hair Growth
Being one of the world’s fastest growing plants, you would hope it drives superb hair growth right? Well, hemp is easily absorbed into the hair's cuticles which leaves your hair with lightweight moisture that does not feel heavy, sticky or greasy.
Hemp oil also helps to enhance the growth of hair on the scalp in a number of ways. Among these is through the Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids, which are necessary in stimulating growth. Hair is made of keratin, up to 90% of which is a protein. Hemp oil can provide this protein during growth as a basic element of the hair, especially when included in a diet.
The oil also improves blood circulation on the scalp, which ensures that the hair follicles are nourished enough to support hair growth.
With all these great insights, I’m sure you understand why we love Hemp oil so much and include it in all of our products. Now, have a look at a our full Divine 7 product line to check it out for yourself!
