Excited to learn how to get the most incredible hemp oil benefits for hair? Then dive in and discover three easy ways to use them.
3 ingredient hair mask
One way to ensure healthy hair is to use several effective products at the same time.
This simple two-step recipe contains three hydrating ingredients:
- A tablespoon of hemp seed oil
- A tablespoon of neem oil
- Three tablespoons of aloe vera
- Pour the aloe vera into a medium sized plastic bowl with the neem and hemp seed oil.
- Stir until combined.
Soak your strands and scalp in the mixture and leave on for 20-30 minutes. Rinse and dry as usual. Replace your conditioner with this blend or use in addition to your current hair care routine.
Every ingredient in this easy recipe will improve your mane’s health. Aloe Vera is a deep conditioner that prevents itching and helps reduce dandruff. The versatile properties of neem oil moisturize and stimulate the scalp.
Users often turn to hemp for hair growth. Its moisturizing properties ensure healthy hair and improve blood flow to the follicles.
Kitchen Ingredients Hemp-Infused Hair Mask
Homemade hair products don’t have to be expensive. Some recipes only require you to add a few pantry items to your hemp seed oil.
This hydrating mask option allows you to substitute ingredients based on availability. Whipping takes ten minutes and is enough for one application on medium-length hair. Longer curls may require a second batch.
Gather the following components:
- A medium sized egg
- Half a teaspoon of hemp seed oil
- A teaspoon of coconut oil
- Half an avocado
Swap out coconut oil for olive oil, or use a banana instead of avocado if you’re missing something. The hair mask remains effective provided the amounts remain the same.
- Separate the egg and beat the yolk until fluffy.
- Mash the avocado with a fork. It should have a smooth consistency with no lumps.
- Combine the egg yolks and avocado in a food processor or whisk until combined.
- Add the coconut and hemp seed oil and stir.
For best results, apply the mixture to sectioned hair. Rinse after 25-35 minutes and style as desired.
It might seem strange to use household items in a hair mask, but each ingredient offers different benefits to your strands. The hemp oil stimulates the scalp, while the egg yolk and avocado moisturize and add shine. Coconut oil reduces moisture loss from your curls.
Some users like to add a few drops of honey or lavender to the mix for a soothing scent and antiseptic properties.

For best results, apply the hair mask to damp hair and leave on for 30-45 minutes. Wash off the mixture with lukewarm water, then rinse with apple cider vinegar to boost the shine.
