Hair loss can be distressing at times. Although the usual loss includes 100 strands per day, the higher amount can be alarming. So, if you want thicker and healthier strands of hair, you are not alone. According to studies, by the age of 50, 85 percent of American men can have a significant degree of hair loss. With women above the age of 20, this number stands as high as 32 percent. The evidence also confirms that persistent hair loss can cause psychological damages and increase emotional suffering. It can affect the personal and social image of a person to the extent of obstructing daily routine.

Penetration of advanced hair treatment options like Platelet Rich Plasma therapy and increased focus on various active ingredients for providing hair loss solutions is defining the steady growth of this market. And that is why the current craze involves using the most versatile therapeutic compound for hair treatment- the CBD.

The skyrocketed popularity is purely based on its efficacy for treating a multitude of medical problems. It is an active ingredient present in hemp, that when interacts with the Endocannabinoid System of the body, imparts homeostasis. Therefore, it can combat various somatic and psychological problems, like inflammation and related pain, anxiety, stress, insomnia, and other chronic ailments. The best part is unlike its counterpart THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and does not produce an intoxication effect after usage. 

CBD For Hair- Research Overview

Cannabinoid (CB) receptors are an integral part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). These receptors regulate and induce certain biological functions for smooth body functioning, including the skin. Thus, the cannabinoids in cutaneous ECS can proliferate and differentiate skin cells and modulate the cytokines.
 
The connection of CBD with the ECS may improve the body’s repair functions and generate healthy cells. Findings suggest that using CBD may soothe various severe skin disorders like eczema and dermatitis that can cause hair loss. As per research, CB1 receptor antagonists can counteract hair loss. As CBD is a negative allosteric modulator of CB1, it plays as an antagonist and may have the potential to inhibit the same. 

So, Does CBD Promote Hair Growth?

Although there is scarce information regarding CBD’s direct involvement in promoting healthy hairs, it supports all the conditions that can generate new strands. Here are a few points that show its efficacy in boosting your tresses.

1. CBD- massages Improve Blood Circulation

The benefits of increased blood circulation involve better blood and oxygen flow in different parts of the body, including the scalp. Improved blood flow increases hair growth and helps prevent damage. As CBD- massages increase cerebral blood flow, it may deliver more nutrients to the hair follicle and reduce toxins to promote healthy hairs. 

2. It Reduces Inflammation

Studies show that inflammatory conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or frontal fibrosing can cause hair thinning and damage. CBD is well-known for its anti-inflammatory qualities. Just like other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, it restricts the various signaling pathways and molecules that trigger inflammation. Therefore, it can be useful in treating scalp conditions like folliculitis.

3. CBD Can Relieve Stress And Promote Sleep

Nothing can be best than ingesting CBD to relieve stress and to get a good sleep. Stress can adversely impact the hair follicle by sending it to the resting phase that may eventually fall. Sleeplessness can also affect stem cell activity and negatively affect the hair follicle, diminishing hair growth. High cortisol levels are also responsible for hair loss. If anxiolytic properties of CBD relieve stress, decrease cortisol levels, and induce sleep, it may indirectly promote hair health. 

4. It May Strengthen The Hair

Proteins not only build your body but hair as well. CBD is a good source of all 21 amino acids that form the building block of proteins. Besides, it contains Vitamin- B complex, Vitamin C, E, flavonoids, calcium, and iron, all nutrients that are vital for hair growth. Moreover, the antioxidant properties of CBD help protect your hair from external environmental damages and balance sebum production, providing a healthier environment for hair to grow on the scalp. 

5. CBD May Promote Hair Growth

CBD contains the perfect ratio of Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids. These fat molecules improve hair density and diameter by the proliferation of Dermal Papilla Cells that plays pivotal roles in hair formation and growth. Further, the presence of GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid) can alleviate inflammation and hair follicle damage.

Conclusion

CBD for hair health is an emerging field of study. There is continuous evidence from the users who find this compound a solution for their hair problems. The presence of a range of beneficial minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients make this ingredient potent enough to address hair loss. Many research is also backing the potential of cannabidiol for stimulating hair growth. As the medical opportunity related to CBD is endless, very soon, it may prove to be the most sought-after product in trichology.
