RE-GAIN YOUR MANE: Can CBD Help with Hair Thinning and Hair Loss?

For many people, our hair can make or break who we are. Thick, healthy tresses can enhance our confidence in what is an aesthetically competitive world and can add to our personal identity in everything we do. But not everyone is blessed with an abundance of hair, and even those who do, through such events as personal trauma, can suddenly lose their hair and with it their confidence. There are two notable types of hair loss and finding out which one is the underlying cause for you personally, can help you decide which route is the best for you to follow in seeking the right treatment.

Alopecia Androgenetic:

Irrelevant of your age, hair loss can affect both men and women, and can subsequently have a devastating effect on both your physical and mental wellbeing. Hair loss may be gradual, such as generic baldness which commonly runs through families, (Alopecia Androgenetic) generally known as male or female pattern hair loss, although hereditary it can sometimes be managed with medication or surgical intervention. In men it generally starts with a receding hairline, and baldness on the top of the head, and in women, it tends to be a general thinning of the hair across the whole of the head. If your parents or grandparents, (Paternal or Maternal) were bald, then odds on, you could probably expect to go bald too.

Alopecia Areata:

Hair loss can also come on suddenly, with clumps of hair coming out by the handful (Alopecia Areata). Although the exact cause is not fully known, this drastic form of hair loss may be triggered by a sudden illness, trauma, or stress and is thought to be an autoimmune disorder, in which the hair follicles, can become damaged, causing the immune system to attack healthy hair follicles, resulting in visible small round bald patches occurring on the scalp. The hair usually grows back, without any intervention, within several months, but in certain circumstances it may last for many years.

The first step to take is to visit your doctor and find out if there are any underlying causes for your sudden hair loss.

  • It could be that it’s hereditary, in which case, although there is no magic cure, there may be certain things you could do to stem the onset of your hair thinning and the progression of hair loss (baldness).

  • It may be that you have an underactive thyroid, which apart from being responsible for regulating your metabolic rate and other crucial functions, it also plays an essential role in the development and growth of your hair follicles. (Hypothyroidism), triggered by an underactive thyroid, means you’re not producing enough of the hormones T3 and T4, which can cause symptoms such as a dry scaly scalp and brittle hair, and inadvertently stunting your hair growth, leading to noticeable hair loss.

  • Alternatively, your thyroid could be producing too much of the T3 and T4 hormones (Hyperthyroidism) This can cause many symptoms such as anxiety, nervousness and stress which can cause the hair to become soft and thin and accelerate the hair to fall out in patches.

  • Sebaceous glands can also have an affect on your hairs condition and growth. Their main purpose is to maintain the moisture in your skin, and a high concentration of these glands are found on the scalp. Research suggests that these glands could also be an antioxidant in fighting microorganisms, and in doing so, aids in keeping your scalp healthy.

Can CBD Help:

CBD for Stress: It’s a well-known fact that modern day to day living can have a huge impact on your mental health, including lack of concentration, insomnia, and mood swings. This can inadvertently have a detrimental impact on your physical wellbeing too, with signs of lethargy, dull skin, hair thinning and even hair loss. Research shows that CBD has many health benefits including helping reduce your stress and anxiety levels, and therefore helping overall in improvement of your physical wellbeing too. Prevention is better than cure and to repress stress and anxiety, I’d definitely consider trying CBD.

CBD oil for a Healthy Scalp: CBD oil, obtained from the cannabis plant, is full of nutrient rich properties that can permeate into your scalp and could be the secret component in supporting healthy skin and hair. This on its own can help alleviate the initiation of many issues with your hair, such as brittle ends, dull lack-luster tresses, hair thinning and hair loss, by acting as an anti-inflammatory, and containing vitamins A, C & E it’s also acts as a great antioxidant. By adding CBD oil to your normal hair routine, you could see a great improvement overall in your battle to retain that mane.

CBD oil for dry hair: A CBD infused shampoo can help to prevent dry straw looking hair by building up the protein and amino acids in the hair shaft, rendering it softer and more pliable, therefore strengthening your hair and preventing unnecessary fall out.

CBD oil for oily hair: This is caused by the sebaceous glands secreting excessive tallow, which heightens the production of an oily scalp, leading to oily hair. Studies have shown that using CBD oil can reduce and inhibit the secretion of tallow from the sebaceous glands and in doing so, inhibits the rapid reproduction of sebum-producing epithelial cells, which make up the sebaceous glands.


Research concludes that components found in CBD can primarily help in the prevention of certain stress related health issues, including ‘Mane Bane’ (Hair Misery) It helps to soothe your hair shaft by locking in the moisture and sealing the cuticle. It can reduce inflammation, decrease hair loss, and stimulate the growth of the hair follicles, increasing blood circulation and resulting in overall healthier looking and thicker feeling hair. CBD oil can be applied topically to specific areas needing attention, and there’s a growing market out there to give you all the help and advice you need to Re-gain Your Mane.
