Why Choose Hemp-Based Products For My Hair and Skin Care: Is It Really That Special

Hemp seed oil is one of the best oils for healthy skin and hair, who would have guessed that?

If we use this in our diet and as a topical, it would provide supreme skin and hair conditions! The essential fatty acids and amino acids are at a perfect balance for the human body, inside and out.

We have what we call essential fats, these are not created by our bodies but we need them. And we have the non-essential fats, these are created by our bodies, but we need more of them on average than what we create. Hemp seed oils contain these at a perfect balance for our internal and external use.

This oil is very a great skin and hair moisturizer and it is more absorbent than either olive or avocado oils. Also, hemp oil has natural anti-inflammatory properties, and an abundance of vitamin E, it will give your skin a more youthful look with fewer wrinkles.

This makes for a wonderful make-up remover and facial cleanser. The reasons for this are quite simple really. Hemp oil is very nourishing for your skin, and it doesn’t remove any of the natural oils you need for fighting bacteria, and we all know that bacteria is the main cause of acne. Basically, it balances the hydration of your skin so you don’t get the bacteria build up under dead skin which can cause acne.

With hemp skin and hair care products it does not matter what your ethnic background is, this product will work for you. You have to buy one that is suited for your individual needs as with any product. Each person does have their own hair and skin needs after all.

Out of all the products available, that I have tried, so far my favorite brand is Hempz. They have an assortment of products and fragrances on Amazon. I find a lot of great deals on Amazon, they have great prices, wonderful shipping, and superb customer service!

You can buy many forms of Hempz skin and hair products, I have a few here for you to check out. If you like any of them just follow the link and you can buy one or more of them.

Hempz Shampoo & Conditioner

This shampoo is made with 100% pure natural hemp seed oil and leaves your hair shiny and manageable. My hair is very course, so for a shampoo to make it feel soft is amazing to me! I don’t even have a water softener, but my hair feels like I do. This quite possibly is the best shampoo and conditioner I have ever used.

 

I prefer the Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner  for the fragrance. It is not over powering at all, just gentle and refreshing. It leaves my hair very shiny and soft, silky feeling really. My hair doesn’t feel weighted down, just all bouncy and nice!

So far after a week of use (5 washings), I have noticed that washing my hair on a daily basis did not seem to dry it out as other shampoos do and the conditioner did not weigh it down or make it feel greasy too soon. My hair has been quite manageable and in seemingly better condition after just one week!

I am going to continue using this product and let you know more on updates, and if I try other scents.

Hempz Body Wash & Body Moisturizers

Oh boy, I found the matching body wash and after bath oil to the Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Shampoo & Conditioner! This completed my set and doesn’t leave me with combating aromas at the end of my showering.

The body wash really makes you feel clean and soft too, with a very pleasant aroma! Finishing up with the matching body oil was the icing on the cake! I also have very dry skin to go along with my course hair, so finding a great body wash and after shower body moisturizer is essential for me.

If I do not use any lotions or oils, my skin will ash up and crack, and sometimes bleed, so I try to keep it moisturized, and so far this has been the best product for lasting moisturizing! I will continue to give updates on the performance of this product.

  Try this amazing trio of products! 

This is a sweet holiday deal or any time of the year deal really! You get the Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Body Wash, Body Lotion, and Lip Balm all for only one low price! That is an amazing deal! Click the link to take advantage, and notice that if you are an Amazon Prime member there are buying bonuses as well!

I am a line cook for a living, if you are not sure what that means, I will explain. I work at a restaurant, and I am the grill cook, I have what is called a flat-top, and a char-broiler, on the flat-top I cook many items from fish to thinly sliced steak and on the grill I cook burgers, chicken, and salmon. It’s easiest to say that I cook a variety of foods and I usually go home feeling pretty greasy.

So I need a body wash that works! Also, I follow up with a moisturizer that does not clog my pores. I have found exactly what I have been looking for with these products.

This Really Is A Plant For Mankind

We are getting to know our hemp products fairly well by now, and I think it is fair safe to say that, we have been getting the shaft for some time now!

This plant is not only good for the inside of the human body, but the outside as well. Studies are showing that even animals benefit from the use of this plant’s products. The environment can benefit from the use of these plants many products.

When people think about hemp oil and CBD they wonder if they are the same thing. The only thing they are similar in is genetics, they are from the same plant, just different parts. Aside from that, they are totally different. I will describe the differences and their uses.

Hemp seed oil is derived from the seeds only. Whereas the CDB oil is made from the actual flower and leaves of the plant.

The processing is different for extracting each oil, and so are the uses. They each have health benefits and come with warnings as well. Never use any supplement without researching and talking with your physician.

Hemp seed oil never contains CBD or THC as the cannabinoids do not reside in the seed, only the flower contains the cannabinoids.

The CBD oil does not contain high enough of the THC cannabinoid to cause alarm. Some companies are making it with absolutely no THC. You just have to read your labels and research the company you purchase from, if this is a concern you have.

How Hemp Seed Oil Is Made

Uncleaned Hemp Seeds

Hemp seed oil is made with cold compression. Before the seeds are ever compress they are washed extensively to remove any leaf matter, dirt, or other contaminants.

Then they do the pressing process, which is stretching the seeds and twisting like and twisting them like a cork screw action until all the oils come out.

During this process they don’t let the temperature get above 40 degrees. By the time fills into the first filter tank it has cooled more. In the end it is cooled to below 20 degrees and stored in an oxygen free environment. And that’s it, you have hemp seed oil.

This oil is rich in healthy plant fats and has a deep nutty flavor. If the press is cleaned and sterilized after each use the oil can also be considered virgin oil.

The Uses For Hemp Seed Oil

The uses for hemp seed oil are amazing! You can make some wonderful salad dressings and meal toppers with it. Body soaps, lotions, shampoos & conditioners, skin oils, and hair oils are all being made with this product. That’s not even close to be the end of the list.

Hemp seed oil can also be used to make paints, beauty products of all kinds, bio-fuel, and much more. The plant this oil derives from is just simply amazing with all that can be done with it.

The only things this oil should not be used for is frying or cooking above 160 degrees, stopping diarrhea, or raising blood pressure it will not be effective or helpful in these cases.

This oil contains a high amount of healthy plant fat that is very good for us, but we are not used to and it can give you tummy issues if you consume large amounts or on a regular basis. Everything comes with a warning label, hemp seed oil is not different.

How CDB Oil Is Made

CBD oil has a totally different type of extraction process. All the leaves and flowers are used in the making of this oil.

First they are soaked in a grain alcohol then strained a bunch, and you are left with a slurry of cannabinoids and grain alcohol. Then ethanol is used to extract the oil, I am not real sure how this process is achieved.

At the end of the extraction the CBD oil can then be combined with any other oil that you would like it in pretty much, although hemp oil, olive oil, and butter are the main ones used.

The Uses For CBD Oil

The uses for CBD are pretty much medical, although there are no scientific claims that are backing up the popular opinion as yet, they are researching every day.

Popular opinion says that some use it for arthritis pain and other chronic pain, anxiety may be able to be relieved with its use. CBD oil has been in the news as a possible treatment option for epilepsy as well. Just remember to talk to your doctor before you take any herb or supplement.

Research is being done on possible effects on Alzheimer’s disease, MS (multiple sclerosis), Parkinson’s disease, and strokes. This product has not yet been approved for cancer treatment, but researchers a working very hard on results.

Anti-acne is also on the list for researching as CBD may also reduce overall inflammation in your body which could help acne in the long run.

This oil you can cook with up to 356 degrees Fahrenheit, it can be infused with hemp seed oil, olive and vegetable oils. You can bake with it, add it to milkshakes you can add it to just about anything you don’t mind the flavor in.

There are some side effects that are listed with CBD they include: dizziness, depression, low blood pressure, hallucinations, and withdrawal symptoms such as irritability and insomnia. Some people say they don’t notice any side effects, but then there are the few that it just really does not agree with.

The Doctor

It’s Really All About What You’re Looking For

When it comes to which oil is best for you it’s really a matter of personal needs. It’s a choice for you to make after you have done your research, spoke with your physician, and came to your own educated decision.

If you are looking to flavor up some foods and have healthy skin and hair, you should shop for hemp seed oil and products that are made with it. And if you want to feel like you have helped the plant and environment you can because hemp is a green product and most items that contain it, are also organic or all natural.

Soaking Up The Days End

If you are looking for some health benefits you should try the CBD oil after you have talked with your doctor and made and informed decision. It could be the best thing you have tried since ginger root for health benefits.

Don’t just jump on the CBD band wagon because others are. At the end of the day, do what is right for you that is what counts the most.

I would love to hear your opinion on this article. Please feel free to leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank as always.
