Can CBD Oil Help With Hair Loss?

    If you are losing your hair then surely you have tried a number of cures already. Most of the so called cures don’t actually work, unfortunately. There are plenty of ways to stop your hair loss, but finding the right one can be tricky.


    Now that CBD oil is legal, it makes sense to take a look at it to see if it can be used to help stop your hair loss and possibly regrow it.


    CBD oil is being used to treat a number of different conditions from anxiety to insomnia. It can also help with different skin conditions. Because of this, people are trying it out as a treatment for hair loss.


    Will it work for you? Read on to see how CBD can help with hair loss. Then, you can learn more about which one is best. 


    Skin conditions


    Many people end up losing hair due to a skin condition. In these cases, treatment is possible to be able to stop the loss and then regrow the hair.


    Alopecia is a condition that results in hair loss and may be treated with CBD oil. CBD is a brilliant anti-inflammatory that can calm an outbreak that results in hair loss.


    By treating the skin and reducing the effects of alopecia, the CBD can be very effective at allowing your hair to regrow.


    There is also eczema and psoriasis that can end up leading to hair loss. These are also an autoimmune response like alopecia, so the CBD can’t treat the actual condition. Rather, what it does is to treat some of the symptoms like dry and irritable skin. Once the affected area is treated and the dry skin more supple, then the hair in that area can start to grow again.


    Sebum production


    Another possible cause of the hair loss could be from your sebum production. This is the waste from your blood that is secreted out in your pores in the form of natural oils. These oils, or sebum, are needed to hydrate and nourish the hair, but too much can cause pores to get blocked and even infected. A normal amount of sebum will nourish your hair and still allow the pores to remain open and clean. When the pores are clogged with sebum, bacteria is often accumulated which can impact your hair growth.




    When we are stressed, our body reacts in a negative way. Often, we see some of the results as hair loss. One of the reasons for this is that our circulation is impacted from the stress which means our hair follicles are not getting enough nourishment. 


    Reducing stress can end up helping our hair loss as our body is able to recover and produce less cortisol. You’ll notice less of your hair falling out when you are calmer and more focused. 


    We also repair cells when we sleep and CBD is wonderful at helping to get a good night’s sleep. When our body has time to repair, it can help keep your hair from falling out.
