I should first point out that hemp seed oil shouldn’t be confused with hemp oil. Hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the hemp plant and is cultivated for non-drug use
An all-rounder skin oil that is ideal for most skin types, hemp seed oil doesn’t block pores and has a rating of zero on the comedogenic ratings chart, which means that that for those who are worried about the potential of an oil blocking your pores, you don’t have to worry about this one at all.
With an absorption rate of 3, hemp seed oil leaves a nice satiny, glowing finish on the skin, hydrates the skin well, reduces inflammation and can even help to balance out oily skin.
Research shows that as well as using it on the skin, dietary hemp seed oil…in other words ingesting it as part of your diet, can help to improve eczema symptoms.
When applied topically, hemp seed oil can help to improve eczema, acne, psoriasis and dry skin. A 2014 study even found that hemp oil can contribute to stronger skin that is more resistant to viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
As an oil that is naturally high in fatty acids and omega acids, hemp seed oil is a skin soothing oil which also has humectant benefits, meaning that it attracts moisture from the air, to the skin.
In fact, hemp seed oil is so great that to date, it has no known side effects!
Personally I love to use it on my face, hair and body!
Is ‘thick and hard to manage’ a part of that dialogue?
If so…please allow this blog to encourage, empower and inspire you.
I believe that not only is the crown on your head beautiful! It is also “waiting” to be worn in its full beauty! Even though it is thick, it is manageable! Even though it is “hard to manage”, it is manageable! Even if your life history has delivered a message of mistruth…your hair can be worn well……it is manageable!!!!!!
Part of the key to “managing” your natural hair is in your own self truth, your hair maintenance and an understanding of how to “listen” to what your hair is “saying”
– Your hair is beautiful no matter it’s length, texture or density! – You are beautiful! – You can learn how to develop and maintain your hair – You can empower yourself with knowledge about nourishing ingredients and also in the benefit of reading product labels before you bu.
– Our (yes I am including myself) hair needs moisture! – Our scalp needs to be healthy in order to promote hair growth! – Our hair strands need to be nourished! AND – The ends of our hair need to be protected in order to prevent breakage and have length retention! (aka: long hair)
How can this be accomplished? ️
– By developing a daily/weekly/monthly haircare routine that will help our hair become manageable – By having a healthy scalp which will promote hair growth – By understanding that the routine doesn’t have to be complicated, it just needs a commitment to learning as well as the space to implement
Where to start
– Moisture: 100% Water is the first stop. Aloe Vera Juice (AV Juice) is great. You can mix 50% AV juice with 50% water. You can also use 100% AV Juice. I have been exploring floral water (Hydrosols) and I have to say my hair is responding nicely! It stays moisturized longer and is even softer than by just using AV Juice
Does your hair need a lot of liquids to stay hydrated or not so much?
– Some Oils & Butters such as Jojoba, Olive, Sweet Almond, Flaxseed, Shea, Cocoa, Mango will penetrate and the hair shafts as well as coat the strands to help lock in moisture
– Washing hair weekly will help keep a healthy scalp. If you live in a hard water area a chelating agent will be part of your monthly wash
– Deep Conditioning will help with softness and detangling
– Read and understand the ingredients on the product labels before you buy
– Do your own research
When I started my own natural hair journey, I used the words ‘thick’ and ‘hard’ to manage as descriptors for my hair
