A Newfound Benefit of Hemp Oil: Hair Growth For Patients Undergoing Chemotherapy

As you might have guessed, at Dr. Hempster, we are obsessed with hemp and its wide range of health benefits. One of the benefits not often mentioned is hair growth for people undergoing chemotherapy.

If you are going through chemotherapy treatment, there are various side effects that you might be experiencing. One of the more common and visible effects is hair loss. Hair loss can be frustrating, embarrassing, and an outright nuisance. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help regrow lost hair.

One treatment that is becoming increasingly popular is using hemp oil. Using hemp oil regularly is said to help make hair grow back quicker and help it grow out fuller as well.

Although using hemp oil for hair growth is still relatively new, studies have shown that it works wonders on those who have experienced hair loss from chemotherapy and other medical treatments. The goal of hemp oil is to help strengthen the hair and increase its health.

Rich in omega 3, 6, and 9, hemp oil is packed with fatty acids necessary for maximizing hair growth. Scalp massage with oils such as hemp also promotes blood circulation. Your body uses blood to deliver oxygen and nutrients to your scalp and skin, which may improve hair growth.

Increasing blood flow to your scalp is easy. Gently massage a bit of Dr. Hempter's shampoo and conditioner into your scalp for a few minutes in the evening. Not only is it relaxing, but the oil will invigorate your scalp and promote hair growth.

From the Dr.'s heart to yours, if you are undergoing cancer treatment, the Dr. wishes you a speedy and healthy recovery.
