How Hemp Seed Oil Can Help Strengthen Your Hair and Scalp

What is Hemp Seed Oil?

Hemp seed oil, characterised by its mostly clear appearance with a subtle green tint, is derived from hemp seeds. Unlike cannabis sativa, the variety associated with psychoactive effects due to its THC content, hemp is a distinct cannabis plant. Our hemp seed oils at Hemp Shack are devoid of CBD, another compound present in cannabis sativa, and are safe for consumption across all age groups.

Rich in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), hemp seed oil has demonstrated efficacy in reducing inflammation. Additionally, it contains all nine essential amino acids, serving as fundamental building blocks for protein synthesis in the body.

What are the health benefits of using Australian Hemp Seed Oil?

In recent times, hemp seed oil has surged in popularity as a remedy for various conditions, spanning from skin ailments to stress management. While ongoing research continues to unveil its potential benefits, hemp seed oil shows promise in potentially mitigating the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular conditions, alongside its known anti-inflammatory properties and capacity to address skin concerns.

Why use Hemp Seed Oil for your hair & scalp?

Hemp seed oil has demonstrated efficacy in alleviating symptoms and providing relief for various scalp and hair disorders. Rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are present in an optimal ratio, hemp seed oil has been linked to improvements in conditions such as dry skin and itchiness associated with eczema, as well as acne treatment according to research. This beneficial effect on hair and scalp health can be attributed to the diverse array of nourishing components in hemp seed oil, including GLA, vitamin D, vitamin E, carotene, calcium, and magnesium, among others.

Application of hemp seed oil on the hair and scalp may:

  • Stimulate hair growth
  • Manage dandruff or flaky skin
  • Alleviate itchiness or irritation
  • Hydrate the hair
  • Enhance hair thickness
  • Prevent moisture loss
  • Restore damaged hair
  • Enhance body and shine


How do I incorporate Hemp Seed Oil into my daily hair care routine? 

Hemp seed oil serves as a daily supplement to nurture both your hair and scalp, boasting a blend of additional ingredients that contribute to overall well-being. We recommend a daily dosage of 10mls.

Our oils are versatile and can be ingested orally or integrated into your culinary repertoire. Hemp seed oil, known for its rich and nutty flavor, enhances dishes such as hummus, salad dressings, marinades, and sauces.

Furthermore, hemp seed oil can be directly applied to the hair and scalp. A small amount gently distributed throughout the hair can aid in fortifying and hydrating damaged strands. To address dryness or excess oil on the scalp, hemp seed oil can be applied directly overnight and rinsed out the following morning.
