Hello everybody! Today we would like to address a FAQ that is on the minds of all our customers when they first discover one of the key ingredients in our newest hair care product: CBD!
At first, they chuckle and crack all the jokes that even you (and most of us) had in mind, especially if they also noticed the puns on the product names. But then they ask, 'What exactly does CBD do in your formulations? That seems rather unusual, doesn't it?
Without further delay, let's delve in and explore the reasons and advantages of this amazing ingredient.
CBD for hair is like Plant Medicine
Each strand of hair is composed of protein, and as CBD contains 21 amino acids, its use in hair care can enhance the well-being of both hair and scalp.
- Hair benefits:
• keep the hair strong and moisturized by preventing water loss
• to its thickness, shine, and reviving of damaged hair
• avoids hair breakage by enhancing lubrication of the shafts, and by reducing the combing force of wet hair
- Scalp benefits:
• stimulates the formation of new cells on the scalp
• helps to eliminate bacteria and relieving the symptoms of dryness and itchiness in atopic dermatitis
• locks in moisture and reduces dryness.
But it's a rinse-off product, right?
While it is true that our customers who are familiar with CBD may typically associate it with oils, lotions, or sleep aids, and may be concerned that its benefits will be diminished when rinsed off, we use it in our rinse-off product for a two reasons:
- A considerable number of our customers seek hypoallergenic, pure, and environmentally friendly products that can contribute to a healthy scalp, alleviate itching, and prevent allergic reactions commonly associated with harsh synthetic products,
- To allow the conditioner to work its magic, it is necessary to leave it in the hair for at least 10 minutes, as this will produce optimal conditioning results. During this period, your hair and scalp will consistently reap the advantages of the product. While it's difficult to determine how long it will take for the CBD to produce visible effects on the body or if it will reach deeper than the first layers of the epidermis, we are confident that this time frame is sufficient for positive outcomes.
How do you use it?
Using our shampoo + conditioner bars is easy peasy:
• Wet your hair
• Stroke the shampoo bar over your hair a few times to lather it up, or rub the bar between your hands to create lather
• Gently massage it into the scalp and hair, as you would with a liquid shampoo
• Leave in the hair middle and ends of 10 minutes for better conditioning results
• Rinse out
Does it foam?
To put it simply, YES! This product creates a rich foam that is gentle on both your hair and scalp. It's also an excellent option for individuals who have not had success with our traditional shampoo bars and for those with dyed hair. This shampoo + conditioner bar doesn't require an acid rinse and doesn't have a transition phase.
What is going on with these funky names?
We had a blast brainstorming these names! Don't you think they're hilarious? Our goal was to create something that would catch people's attention, evoke thoughts of cannabinoids, and bring a smile to their faces, so they would remember our product through happy associations.
- We were thinking about the alternative rock band Supergrass, formed in Oxford in 1993,
- Whenever I say the prefix "super," I can't help but think of superheroes. The truth is, we are all superheroes, and this shampoo is suitable for all hair types.
- The tongue-in-cheek reference to ''grass'' is pretty obvious, and we're aware of it ;)
''Forest on High'', or "High forest" refers to a type of forest where the trees are tall and grown closely together, creating a closed canopy that blocks sunlight from reaching the ground. This type of forest is typically found in regions with high rainfall and moderate temperatures.
Haze strains are sativa-dominant and provide an energetic and upbeat high. Our shampoo for oily-prone hair has a refreshing fragrance that includes tea tree, peppermint, and may chang, making it an uplifting and energizing experience that leaves you feeling revitalized for the day ahead. We found this to be a fitting comparison.
We hope you had fun and learnt something new today. If you have tried our product and would like to leave us a review, we would greatly appreciate it. You can do so at the end of the product page. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us .
