Why CBD?

The wonders of CBD are a lot to be desired. Calming the nerves, helping you sleep and better yet… improve your hair, skin, and nails! Research shows that CBD reduces sebum production in the scalp by interacting with receptors called TRPV1 receptors. These receptors are located on the hair follicles and regulate sebum production. When these receptors are activated by CBD, they decrease sebum production in the scalp.

In addition to decreasing sebum production, there are also antimicrobial properties within CBD that fight against infections in the scalp. These infections cause dandruff and may also lead to other problems such as hair loss if left untreated!

Why CBD is good for the hair

CBD can help to soothe scalp inflammation and help to treat conditions such as folliculitis or psoriasis. CBD also reduces dandruff and dry scalp problems by influencing the scalp’s natural sebum and oil levels. Its antimicrobial properties reduce the risk of scalp infections. Roots Professional CBD shampoo and conditioner is ideal for clients who suffer with their scalp. With the addition of  Blast scalp & hair treatment for a once a week deep cleanse.

Case Study by Krysia West

Krysia West’s case study on a client

“I wanted to test Blast on a client of mine who has suffered with seborrheic dermatitis (adult cradle cap) for years, and nothing has worked. He doesn’t wash his hair very often—once a week if that—so I was shocked when he came to me for support.

I recommended Blast for its anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal ingredients, and advised him to wash twice a week. When he came back for his follow-up appointment, I was in shock: he had used it in total 8 washes (2x a week x 4 weeks).

It didn’t just help sooth it and help to start to clear it up… it FULLY cleared it up! His scalp looked so healthy!

I love this product and highly recommend it to anyone with any form of scalp condition to use alongside CBD shampoo and conditioner.”
