Summer is a tough time if you have high-maintenance hair or a sensitive scalp. The sun and extreme heat can leave skin burnt and irritated, and the humidity or a sudden rain shower can ruin a hair style. Fortunately, there are home remedies that use CBD’s natural anti-inflammatory properties for hair and scalp care. Skin and hair care companies have picked up on this trend, and many major companies are advertising their own CBD-infused shampoos and conditioners. Unfortunately, most of them don’t share the dosage of CBD in the product. The amount could be so small that it is a CBD product in name only. The good news is, homemade CBD hair and skin products are not difficult to make, and recipes are prevalent. Many recipes are also customizable and can use favorite essential oils, like peppermint, lavender, or tea tree. Also, if you already have a favorite shampoo or conditioner, you can add CBD oil and see what amount you prefer for your hair type. The biggest upside to homemade shampoo or conditioner is knowing exactly what is – and isn’t – included in the formula. It is easier to include organic ingredients, like Arete Hemp’s 250mg Organic CBD oil, and leave out sulfates and parabens, which are unfortunately still too common in hair products. It can also minimize the carbon footprint, since most hair care products have plastic, non-biodegradable packaging, and Arete Hemp’s CBD products are made using sustainable organic farming practices. Readers, we want to hear from you! Have you made your own homemade CBD shampoo or conditioner? What is your preferred dosage, and have you tried adding essential oils to the formula?
