CBD oil is a new rage, and you wouldn’t believe some of the benefits that can be achieved for hair health by adding just a small amount of this all-natural supplement to your normal shampoo. Those who choose to take the extra leap and learn how to make CBD oil hair wash for themselves can have the most power over the results, as you can add whatever products work for you, without the added chemicals and preservatives that you will find in store-bought versions.

CBD oil benefits for hair

CBD can help to reach deep into the inner parts of the hair follicles to moisturize each strand from the inside out. It is fast-acting, long-lasting and the carrier oils that are most often used for this process will also provide a hearty boost of essential oils and nutrients that your hair craves.

The best ingredient to make CBD oil

Learning how to make CBD oil is not a difficult task, but finding the right products to start the process, might be. Most cannabis strains produce high quantities of THC, but not much CBD. So instead of marijuana plant materials, the ideal base ingredient to use is hemp flowers or a specially bred high CBD strain.

Where to buy CBD oil

When it comes to choosing where to buy CBD oil, there are plenty of options out there. Luckily, since these oils are normally mass manufactured by companies using hemp, it is a legal product in most regions. Some of the best retailers will be your local dispensary and online stores that carry regulated and tested products that are not made using caustic solvents.

How to make CBD oil shampoo

Once you have decided where to buy CBD oil, or how to make some for yourself, then you can move on to the final step that is making all your own CBD oil-infused products. Some of the most popular options are salves, lotions, sprays and edibles, but this shampoo offers benefits that you can see instantly. Though technically, you can use any kind friendly CBD oil, it’s a good idea to start with coconut or hemp oil, as both are chock full of proteins and vitamins that can help to nourish dry and brittle hair.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of aloe vera (gel)
  • 1 cup of cannabis oil (cocoanut is preferred)
  • ¼ cup of warm water
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 teaspoons of jojoba oil
  • 1 teaspoon of orange essential oil
  • 1 teaspoon of lavender essential oil
  • ¼ cup of castile soap

Tools

  • Heat resistant bowl
  • Mixing spoon
  • Storage container
  • Funnel

Instructions

  1. Though this coconut CBD oil shampoo calls for warm water, it still needs to be heated in a microwave. This helps to ensure that the coconut oil does not solidify which can make mixing the ingredients evenly possible. To do so, place the water inside of the bowl, and heat it on high for 1-2 minutes, or until it begins to steam.

  2. Now, you can add all the remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix them together with a large mixing spoon until they reach a smooth and lump-free consistency.

  3. Place the funnel into the opening of the storage bottle you have ready to hold the CBD oil shampoo, and slowly pour the mixture in. If you find that it is too thick, you can reheat it using the microwave to help make it easier to pour.

  4. Use this CBD oil shampoo in place of your normal shampoo to enjoy the benefits of cannabinoids all day every day.
