How to Use Hemp Seed Oil for Natural Hair Growth | 4B & 4C Hair / Black African Hair / Afro Hair / Curly Hair
Hello, a very warm welcome back to the Jostylin blog. Today’s topic will be on using Hemp oil for natural hair growth. For those of you who have been following me on Youtube, you will know by now that Hemp oil has been my number on staple oil for the last 15 years which I consume both internally and topically, both on my hair and skin.
I randomly came across this oil back in the year 2000, (which seems like ancient times). It was introduced to me by a woman who suffered from fibroids. She mentioned to me that the oil cured her fibroids within months of consuming it. I then introduced it to a relative of mine who also had fibroids, and it worked like magic.
It was only when I started my natural hair journey back in December 2007 that I started using Hemp oil on my hair. Since then I have not abandoned this product. I now mix it in with various other oils in my leave in conditioner and natural hair growth oils.

It’s interesting that help oil is not added in many black hair growth products, because Hemp seed oil stands out for its ease of absorption and penetration both on hair and skin. This improves blood circulation and the lymphatic system which means blood can reach the scalp quicker. The creams that contain cannabis oil are very good to produce the dryness of the skin since it nourishes and provides Omega 3 and 6.
As for hair, cannabis provides hydration and shine. In addition, it rebuilds damaged hair, provides elasticity and softness thanks to the vitamin E it contains. also serves to nourish the scalp thanks to gamma linolenic acid, which is moisturizing and combats dryness and dandruff. Here are some of the benefits for cannabis skin and hair:

The addition of hair massages to hair care treatments helps stimulate the scalp, reduce hair loss, improve circulation and reduce stress. Those looking to promote hair growth should consider performing hair massages regularly.
By massaging the scalp, it will increase blood circulation to the hair follicles so this can help prevent hair loss while improving your overall hair health. Performing hair massages every day can help you get a full head of hair and maintain a healthy appearance.
When doing a hemp oil scalp massage, add some essential oils. Essential oils increase circulation and are commonly used to treat the scalp of alopecia patients. They also help in providing moisture for a dry scalp.
Begin by adding 2 or 3 drops of an essential oil such as rosemary, Nettle oil into 2 tablespoons of Hemp oil before massaging the scalp. The oil is your choice.

Hemp Oil Hot Oil Treatment for Natural Hair Growth
You can do a Hemp oil hot oil treatment using the same recipe as my olive oil treatment. To see the treatment, visit the article olive oil for natural hair growth.
1. In a bowl, pour 2 to 4 tablespoons of Hemp oil, depending on the amount of hair you have and its length, and heat it slightly in the microwave. It will be enough with about 15 or 20 seconds.
2. Moisten your hair with warm water and from scalp to tips, apply the hemp oil all over the hair.
3. Cover your hair with a towel and let the oil work for about 30 minutes. With the heat generated when carrying the towel, the nutrients of the hemp oil will penetrate deeper in the hair fibers for healthier hair from the inside.
4. After 30 minutes, rinse the hair with plenty of warm water and perform a normal wash.
5. Hemp seed oil penetrates the skin better than other vegetable oils used in lotions or creams. The oil helps to heal irritated tissue and restores the moisture content of the skin.
6. Brush the scalp after applying the hemp seed oil. Brushing stimulates hair growth by increasing blood flow to the scalp.
7. Use the heat to slide the oil from the scalp to the ends of the hair. After applying the hemp oil, you can use a hair dryer on ver low heat to lightly heat the oil and slide it to the tips to protect them from damage to the hairstyle and the drying effects of the shampoo.
8. You can carry out this treatment to grow hair with hemp oil once a week. Now, if your hair is very oily, it is best that you do it every 15 days or that you only apply the oil from medium to ends, avoiding doing it on the scalp.
