Journey Toward Healthy Hair: The Healing Seed

Not too long ago I discovered The Healing Seed, a new company that offers virgin organic hempseed oil body care products.

It’s bad reputation aside, hemp is actually a nutritional powerhouse. It is jam packed with Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty oils, is high in fiber, is a good source of protein, contains all essential amino acids, and is rich in vitamins and minerals. Hempseed oil is one of the healthiest oils—healthier than flaxseed oil—because it contains a better balance of linoleic and linolenic fatty acids, according to our August 2009 story Make Way for Hemp ProductsLinoleic and linolenic fatty acids are very low hazards according to the Environmental Working Group’s Cosmetic Database.




The company promises that these unique and eco-friendly ingredients will create manageable hair and a healthy shine. Their color-safe shampoo and conditioner products stand out with infusions of sweet orange essential oils. Echinacea, licorice root, ylang ylang, jasmine blossom and ginseng extract also give hair a natural boost.

Personally, I’m not a fan of having my hair smell like fruit. But if this idea sounds appetizing to you, then you must give The Healing Seed’s hair collection a try—their products are free of parabens, artificial fragrances and artificial colors. Lather up in the shower with a dime to nickel size dollop of shampoo and conditioner for a healthy wash.

 Other spanking new products from The Healing Seed include a spring lavender hand cream, a fresh jasmine body wash and an English daisy face cleanser.

What do you think of using hemp seed oil in your daily beauty routine? Do you use it and have you noticed any change in your health? What about The Healing Seed? Are you a fan? Drop me a comment and discuss this product!
