Just as the CBD skin-care market started to feel a little bit easier to navigate, the brands found another beauty category in which to infuse the phytocannabinoid: hair care. Confused once again, we spoke to a few experts and founders to find out what, if anything, CBD can do for your hair and scalp that your existing CBD-free hair products can't.
Over the past couple of years, everyone from beauty labels like Herbivore and Josie Maran to cannabis companies like Lord Jones and Prima have all begun touting the benefits of CBD in skin-care products, spiking face oils and serums with the now-ubiquitous ingredient. CBD skin care has become so prominent that earlier this year, Sephora issued its own official CBD standards.
So far, CBD has found its way into shampoo, conditioner and more targeted treatment products for both hair and scalp. This year brought the launch of Steam, a Los Angeles-based brand that comprises both CBD-only and CBD- and THC-infused hair, face and body-care products. Its hair products include shampoo, conditioner and a hair-and-scalp oil. This year also saw prominent beauty brand R+Co's first foray into CBD with the launch of a "calming" new shampoo and conditioner. And last fall, Canadian beauty brand Raincry launched a Repair line featuring CBD in shampoo, conditioner and a bond repair treatment. Briogeo also came out with a CBD-infused scalp oil (currently the only CBD hair product sold at Sephora).
For those with color-treated hair, the brand hasn’t forgotten you. Color-treated hair needs its own added element of protection, and the lemongrass in this nourishing shampoo has you covered. Plus, for those who subscribe to the curly-girl method, all of the ingredients are approved.
Antioxidants became a health-industry buzzword long before the introduction of CBD. However, just like CBD, there’s plenty of truth behind the fanfare. Antioxidants naturally occur in many plants and vegetables. They function by fighting free radicals in the body.

This formula also adds a touch of jojoba oil, which is known to retain moisture and promote healthy hair growth. One of the things we love about this shampoo is that you can try out the two-ounce travel size before committing to a full-size bottle.
