Why is my beard itchy? I’m afraid it’s due to little bits of dead skin on the hairs as they grow through
Why is my beard itchy? I’m afraid it’s all down to the little bits of dead skin that stick to the beard hairs as they grow through which irritates your skin. We think hemp oil is the answer to remedy the beard itch you suffer from. With all of the controversy surrounding it I imagine that you will have heard a thing or two about hemp. Hemp is one of the fastest growing plants in today’s industry but the use of it started hundreds of years ago. It was one of the first plants to be spun and turned into fibre which was used for sails, canvases and clothing. Today, hemp is still utilised in a number of different ways such as paper, clothing and in skincare.
Let’s just be honest here, your negative feelings towards hemp probably come from big mean overpaid men in a suits, who claim cannabis should be outlawed completely. I’m not here to talk about why a cheeky joint every now and again isn’t harmful, or why it’s less destructive than alcohol. Instead I’m going to talk about why hemp seed oil has many beard care and skin care benefits and should not be avoided, just because it comes from the cannabis plant.
Why is my beard itchy? Your beard may lack Omega 3 and Omega 6
When your hair loses its moisture, it becomes very dry and brittle, this also makes your hair more sensitive to breakage. The oil helps to maintain the natural texture of hair, preventing water loss and adds moisture to the hair and skin. Not only does it help to moisturise your hair and keep it healthy, hemp seed oil is rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9. These fatty acids are necessary in the production of new growth and supply proper nourishment to the follicle. It can also improve blood circulation in the skin, which in turn can stimulate new hair growth. So for those suffering from a patchy beard, you may want to start stocking up.
Why is my beard itchy? Your beard hair needs protein
Hemp seed oil will strengthen your beard hair. Your hair is made up of 90% protein, and hemp seed oil contains 25% protein and will contribute to keratin formation during the initial growth cycle of the strand. This extra boost of protein ensures that hair grows healthier, thicker and more vibrant. There is also an added benefit that due to your hair being healthier it’ll be less subjective to thinning or falling out.
Due to hemp’s antioxidant properties, it reduces free radicals in your body and will slow down the aging process, regular use of the hemp seed oil based products can also help to reduce the appearance of already existing fine lines and wrinkles. And I’m sure you wouldn’t be too disappointed with smooth, fresh, young and healthy looking skin.
