CBD in hair care

Hair growth products with CBD oil

Maybe you agree with me if I say that CBD oil is one of the most exciting thing now on the beauty market. The buzz about it is not surprising. Some people welcome this change while others think it to be harmful and dangerous. Maybe it’s because of the incomplete knowledge. We can easily judge something by the cover. In this case some people think it’s toxic because it’s derived from a plant being toxic. The reason I write about it is the fact that hair care is also involved. Some hair salons have built this kind of offers into their services and companies are also trying to feed the new demand by developing new products. Hair growth products with CBD oil.

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is not equal to Cannabis, Marijuana or Hemp. Moreover these three things are not the same either. Cannabis Sativa is the family, Marijuana and Hemp derive from. These two plants have a different appearance and chemical compositions. The component to make you high is THC what is in Marijuana. CBD, what is a short name for cannabidiol comes from Hemp and will not change your state of mind. Thinking about my own pieces of information after reading about this topic in the first times, I was confused as well. Why? Because of a small but very important difference in the names of cannabidiol and cannabinoid. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids (two from more than a hundred) but only CBD is cannabidiol. I just simply mixed them and it made me feel kind of helpless before.

Are you more curious? Read the blog post “CBD and how it works in our bodies” or watch the video included…

Is CBD harmful or safe

Given I’m not an expert I cannot make unquestionable claims about it. Studies are ongoing to know more about its side-effects and benefits as well. Nevertheless in 2018 FDA approved the usage of CBD as a therapy. Unlike THC from Marijuana, CBD is not psychoactive and the (World Health Organization declared it not to cause harm. (2017) Some believe that CBD can have an effect on some receptors in the body and make a good influence on the immune system.

Hair growth products with CBD oil

Let’s get back to hair care now. Not only hair salons started to use this ingredient but there are more and more CBD infused products on the market as well. So what can this oil can do for our hair ? Why can we suppose any positive effects on hair and scalp after using this oil?

You can buy different kinds of products with CBD oil and hair care products are not exceptions either.
  • It’s said to contain a lot of Vitamin A, E and C. These antioxidants can support the health of your hair.
  • It’s rich in fatty acids, like (but not only) Omega 3 and Omega 6. They can make your hair hydrated.
  • It can be a good source of calcium, magnesium and potassium. Important nutrients to keep overall health and support hair growth.
  • The amino acids in the oil can help to prevent hair breakage and maintain a natural texture.
  • Massaging it into scalp can improve blood circulation.

If you would like to try a shampoo with this ingredient, Hempson organic shampoo could be a good choice. It’s sulphate and paraben free.

As I see hair growth products with CBD oil can create favourable conditions for hair growth. With the vitamins, fatty and amino acids it can support also your scalp and healthy scalp is the beginning of beautiful hair.

If you like using natural oils, you may be interested in a shampoo with CBD oil.

Is it legal?

In the United Kingdom CBD is not controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act and products with this oil can be sold legally. It’s true only with a maximum 0.2% THC content as described in the article of BBC News.

Natural oils in hair care 2.

Olive oil in hair care

Given I really like natural solutions I decided to write a little about another love of mine, olive oil in hair care. I was just a little girl when I decided to eat less meat and more vegetables. Those days olive oil was just a material for me to make my food healthier and I didn’t even think about using it in beauty and hair care. Maybe I was just too young for that with no wrinkles. 😉 Well, time passed and I became more and more open to using natural oils in beauty and hair care. Olive oil is one of the most effective choices having been used for such purpose for years. As a medical solution it was used already in Ancient Greece. My favourite point about natural oils is being simple and pure with no artificial additives.

Olive oil to moisturize your hair

Let’s just discover step by step

Olive oil is made by pressing whole olives. The Mediterranean region is the home of olive trees and they have been grown for thousands of years. The largest producer is Spain but Italy and Greece are also in the business. Why is it so popular among natural solutions? What are the reasons for more and more persons to use olive oil in hair care? More than 80 percent of the oil is oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid, being useful not only in beauty care but in health care, too. Another important fact is being rich in antioxidants that can help about strengthening the immune system. And anti-inflammatory agents can also be found it this oil that works similar to ibuprofen. There is quiet high amount of Vitamin D and Vitamin K in olive oil and this is a perfect environment for them because they need fat for absorption.

Use olive oil for healthy and beautiful hair.

Olive oil in hair care

Besides beauty care olive oil has been used in hair care for many years. It’s perfect for moisturizing hair because it can penetrate the hair shaft. Your hair will be softer and stronger after regular usage and shiny due to smoothing the outer cuticle of hair. To sum up the benefits of using olive oil in hair care:

  • Oil treated hair is able to keep more moisture. It’s true not only about olive oil but other oils like coconut oil or argan oil, too.
  • Vitamin E, as an antioxidant , protects your skin from damage caused by free radicals and makes your hair moisturized and healthy.
  • It can help to protect your hair from physical damage. It is really useful not only when you use a lot of styling products but also to prevent split ends.
  • If you already have split ends, olive oil (other oils also) can temporary hide them by filling the gaps between cuticle cells. (The result lasts only till the next hair wash)
  • If you have dandruff because of dry scalp an olive-oil scalp massage can help to get rid of it. Using olive oil in hair care moisturizes not only your hair but your scalp, too. In the meanwhile keep in mind that dandruff may have several reasons and not an online forum or blog is the right place to find your reasons. It is strictly something for your doctor.
  • It may be an effective treatment to certain kinds scalp infections caused by fungus. Unsaturated fatty acids slow down the growth of such infections.

Olive oil for natural hair care.

How to use olive oil in hair care?

Use virgin or extra virgin olive oil. Due to my experience making a scalp massage with olive oil or applying it as a hair mask are the most effective ways.

  • For scalp massage:

Use just a small amount. 1-2 teaspoon of olive oil is enough. Massage your scalp for a few minutes then rinse your hair and scalp. After use the shampoo you regularly use. If your scalp and hair is really dry you may want even more effective moisturizing. If so leave the oil on your hair using a shower cap for 15 minutes and rinse, shampoo after.

  • For hair mask:

If you decided to use olive oil in hair care and prefer to apply it as a hair mask, put lukewarm oil on your scalp and massage it shortly then leave it on your hair for a few hours or even for the night. Use a shower cap or a towel. Of course you can also use other ingredients, like a few drops of tea tree oil or peppermint oil. It will have special scent and an extra antimicrobial effect. My favourite hair mask is made of olive oil, avocado and honey. It’s made of one avocado, one tablespoon of olive oil and one table spoon of honey. Mix these ingredients well and put the mixture on your hair and scalp for 20 minutes. Use a shower cap. 20 minutes later rinse your hair thoroughly.

There is one more important thing about using natural oils, like olive oil, in hair care. They are beneficial for everybody because of the moisturizing effect but it’s better to consider what your hair and scalp needs are. You need to choose the right frequency or mixture for your hair type. You can use natural oils even for greasy hair and scalp but it’s better to add a few drops of essential oils with antibacterial effects mainly if greasy scalp is associated with dandruff (caused by bacteria). I would suggest once in a month usage in this case. For dry and thick hair you can use it once a week.

Use extra virgin Olive oil for health and beauty.

The decision is always yours. The product range is huge. You can decide to buy a shampoo or a conditioner with olive oil. You can choose ready to use hair masks or you can buy pure olive oil and make your own mixtures. Whatever you choose you can do a lot for the health of your hair and scalp with using olive oil in hair care. Permed or coloured hair would also be grateful for such a treatment.

UV protection for hair 4.

Sun oils for hair

Well, I was not really prepared to my latest trip to abroad. I mean I travel quiet lot and this time as well –of course- I did everything like usual but I thought to be at my destination latest at midnight. It could happen. It should happen. But 🙂 life decides. My plane was late. Not just 10-20 minutes but almost 3 hours which means to miss the last bus to the little town I wanted to go. Instead of being with my family I’m sitting in the airport and writting my new post here and now. Why not? Let’s use this time for something I love. Okay, I know it was not about hair care at all so far, not about UV protection for hair… sorry for that 🙂 I just wanted to shout it out but I get back to hair care and I’m gonna write my new post about sun oils for hair.  

Sun oils as an option for UV protection

This topic – UV protection for hair – is like a little series so if you missed the previous posts but you want to read more than just sun oils for hair you can scroll down and read about it general or you can read the post about shampoos with UV filter and UV protective hair sprays.

Today (actually tonight, at the airport 🙂 ) I write about sun oils for hair. Such products have been on the market for years all the same I have tried it only once before. I was not satisfied with the result because it made my hair look wet and I felt it to be thinner. Maybe it is because of the type of my hair. I am not that lucky to have a fine head of hair so I need to be careful about choosing the products I use. I don’t say that sun oils can be used only for really fine and thick hair because the product range today has changed a lot. So I made other tests. Just for example there are Clarins Sunscreen Sprays as a waterproof solution both for skin and hair. I like this type because of making my hair silky and because I can use this one bottle also on my skin. A practical way of providing UV protection for hair and body too.

Sun oils for hair and body

Another favourite of mine is Bumble and Bumble oil. This product is much more than „just” UV protection for hair. It can also help to prevent hair damages made by straighteners or blow driers. It protects also from heat so it is something for the whole year.

But maybe you are fed up with using too many different kinds of products all over your body and you think that sun oils for hair is just another group of the chemicals we use. From one point of view you may be right given all of them contain some artifical components. Some of us even have allergy to them. The good new is to have some natural solutions for UV protection as well. Here are some examples with the estimated UV factor. So they not just nourish your hair and scalp but can also help about UV protection for hair.

  • olive oil (SPF 7,549)
  • cocconut oil (SPF 7,119)
  • peppermint oil (SPF 6,668)
  • melissa oil (SPF 6,282)
  • castor oil (SPF 5,687)
  • levander oil (SPF 5,624)

There are some natural sun oils too.

As you can see if it’s sun oil for hair you can choose form ready to use products or you can try some natural solutions. The good side of using the ready ones is being convenient. You can take them with you and use them whenever and wherever you want to provide as long protection as possible. In case of having some questions, remarks or suggestions I am open to your feedback at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk or use Your Beauty Hair’s contact form.. And don’t forget… enjoy summer and stay protected.

Apple cider vinegar in hair care

Natural trends for healthier hair

Apple cider vinegar is well known as a salad dressing but there is much more to do with it. Now it is used in skin care and hair care too. Because of the benefits of this natural ingredient it is no more just a home-made treatment but more and more ready to use products contain it as well. Nevertheless I am gonna write about how you can use it at home for shiny and healthier hair.

Your Beauty Hair about apple cider vinegar

First let us see what are the benefits of applying it on your head of hair:

  • It can balance the natural PH of your hair
  • Perfect for clarifying your scalp
  • Make your hair shiny
  • It can help to detangle your locks
  • It can provide a lot of vitamins like Vitamin A and C, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and many more

I suppose now you would like to know how you can use it to enjoy these benefits. 🙂

Your Beauty Hair about apple cider vinegar

The simplest way is to apply 4-5 table spoons of apple cider vinegar all along your hair then rinse it thoroughly. It will make your hair silky and shiny.

If your hair is oily you can mix it with some nettle. If you have the possibility take fresh nettle (1-2 fibers) and pour one litre of boiling water on it. After 30 minutes clarify it and let the „tea” get cool. Mix 4 table spoon of apple cider vinegar with a few dropps of lavender essential oil then pour it into the cool nettle tea. Use this liquid to rinse your hair.

If your hair is dry you can mix apple cider vinegar with some elder-flower. Make 1 litre elder-flower tea just like the nettle tea above (the best is making it from 1-2 fibers of fresh elder-flower) and clarify it after 30 minutes then let it get cool. For this mixture take a few drops of orange essential oil and put it into the apple cider vinegar. After mixing them pour it into the cool elder-flower tea and use this liquid for rinsing your scalp and hair.

Your Beauty Hair about natural hair care

Hair loves apple cider vinegar. 🙂 Whether your hair is oily, dry or normal you can enjoy the good effets of this wonderful liquid from nature. If you are the type of person to make as many things by hands as possible you can even try making apple cider vinegar at home. You just need whole apples (yes, even the cores) and sugar to make it. Sugar can be replaced with honey of course but in this case you may experience the procedure of making the vinegar being longer.

Hair mask from the kitchen

Effective natural ingredients

All the world has changed so much even since I was a child and there are so many wrong effects on ourselves from the environment that it has become clear that we need to do some extra care about ourselves to maintain our health. Regarding healthy hair we always have the possibility to make a hair mask at home from the ingredients we choose. This way we can be sure about having no artificial colourings, no harmful preservatives in the ointments we use. I would like to help you about how to choose these ingredients. Let us see what are the most effective ingredients.

Hair mask from natural ingredients on Your Beauty Hair

Oils: Oils can be used alone or as a basis of a cream. If your hair is dry and breaks easily you can consider using some olive oil, argan oil, coconut oil or castor oil. You find more info about castor oil in a previous post of mine. If you mildly heat oils you can make their usage easier but remember not to heat them too much because hot oil definitely does not help about beautiful locks.

Egg: The favourite for a lot of us is egg. This is cheap, simple and effective. Though most people use only egg-yolk actually you can use whole eggs as well but in this case you must not use too warm water to rinse your hair because of the reaction of the egg-white. As far as I am concerned during cold seasons I am not longing to any cool water but summer is different. In this season when the weather is hot I am happy to have a refreshing, cool shower so I am open to make a hair mask from whole eggs. Otherwise it is better to use only egg-yolk. You can put some dropps of oil into it and after removing the mask you can use some vinegar to get rid of the strong smell of the egg.

Honey for hair mask on Your Beauty Hair

Honey: In contrast with egg it is something people are kind of affraid of because it is sticky.  If you rinse it thoroughly after usage honey will make your hair shiny, silky and aromatic too. Mixing with some lemon, egg, few dropps of oil or even some beer will result a golden hair mask.

You can choose one of these natural ingredients or you can make your own mixture from them. Whatever you choose always keep them on your hair long enough to have good results. I never remove them sooner than 15 minutes. Making a „care about myself-day” with a long bath while I listen to my favourite songs always make me feel ready for the new week’s challenges.

Nevertheless you can be a person who dislike spending time with making such ointments or you are just too busy to make them for yourself. In this case you can choose a ready to use hair mask from the market. My favourite is a deep conditioning treatment which is able to triple the strength of my hair. No more split ends just shiny and managable hair already a few minutes later of the usage. You can read more details about this hair mask by clicking here or contact me for more information. I can help you also about buying it at a more favourable price. Without being a distributor.
