CBD has been taking over the beauty industry. If you are not familiar with this trending beauty ingredient, CBD is a natural compound derived from the cannabis plant. We keep seeing a rise in companies producing products with CBD, ranging from skincare, to hair, make-up and wellness brands. We will be elaborating on its benefits in this blog post. Design.ME and R+Co are two such companies that offer hair care lines with the benefits of CBD.
1.Nourish sensitive skin: If you are suffering from psoriasis or eczema, CBD might be of use to you. It helps soothe sensitive and easily irritated skin. CBD infused beauty products can help nourish skin and lock in moisture for healthy, glowing skin or hair. Also, the interaction of CBD influences the natural sebum or oil levels in the scalp that reduces problems such as dandruff and dry scalp.
2.Heal acne, redness and inflammation: CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory. Those who suffer from inflammatory skin conditions, like rosacea, benefit from the soothing properties found inside CBD. This miracle ingredient also reduces redness and excessive oil produced by the skin which is a big factor for those who suffer from acne-prone skin.
3.Anti-aging and hair growth: CBD has powerful antioxidant agents which means that you can say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles! It also reduces inflammation which makes it great for skincare. As for hair care, CBD oil acts as an omega fatty acid. Massaging the scalp with the oil soothes the dryness on the scalp by absorbing the nutrients and promotes hair growth.
Need shine and hydration? Design.ME’s Gloss.ME line is just what you need. Here is an excellent description of its benefits: “Brilliant shine, softness, conditioning and hydration…the list goes on! This hydrating formula restores essential hydration and enhances hair’s resilience and strength for shining, invigorated locks. This unique formula of oils and proteins, rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins does it all.” Gloss.ME consists of a shampoo, conditioner, hair serum and a hydrating treatment mask. And all of their products in this line are colour-safe! I noticed after using this line that my hair becomes very shiny and incredibly soft as well, as if I did a hair gloss treatment to my hair. Results are visibly noticeable after the first use. The most popular product of the Gloss.ME series is their hair serum. Everyone who tries it is an instant fan. Everything from the scent to texture is a must-have for your hair care routine. I love that it dries off as a dry oil rather than most that will leave your hands oily. This one dries after applying the product onto your hand, no messy residue.
R+Co launched their first CBD shampoo and conditioner. It gently cleanses and detangles your hair without disrupting your scalp’s natural balance. “A wellness-forward way to wash. Infused with hemp-derived CBD, this shampoo + conditioner instills a sense of calm — and beautiful hair. Boasting a unique blend of hydrating and invigorating oils, it gently cleanses, without disrupting your scalp’s natural balance. This nourishing, sensorially appealing daily cleanser + conditioner is ideal for all hair types.” The main used ingredients are
Hemp-Derived CBD, contains regenerative benefits for hair and scalp. It helps to soothe + calm irritation on scalp. The formulas also contain coconut, moringa, peppermint and eucalyptus oils which also give them a subtle fragrance. If you are familiar with the R+Co fragrances, this one smells just like the Dark Waves sent which consists of: Cardamom, Pineapple, Tangerine, Lavender, Bamboo, Blonde Woods. Upon testing these 2 products, I noticed how gentle it was on my scalp. It made my hair soft and shiny once dry. My hair is usually very frizzy after blow-drying it but after using the CBD shampoo and conditioner, I noticed that it tamed my hair which I fell in love with! Most shampoos will leave my hair with tons of frizz and static but this one does not do that.
I will definitely be using more CBD products in my beauty routine after seeing all of the benefits that it has to offer, not to mention the immediate results. To try these products yourself, check them out on our website!
