It wasn’t that long ago that CBD was still considered taboo in many circles. But now, more people are catching on to what a few of us have known all along: CBD is a modern health marvel. More research is being done on CBD than ever before, and even though its benefits are still being explored, its effects on hair health are already well known.
That’s why we’re proud to introduce EQOL™ — the world’s first lifestyle brand of organic pomade and edge control for hair that’s infused with CBD isolate. We believe that quality hair care products should be within everyone’s reach, and we’re on a mission to change how you think about the products you put in your hair.
Here’s what went into the making of our EQOL™ pomade for men and women and why the CBD element matters more than you think.
What is CBD Isolate?
We formulated EQOL™ pomade using 99.7% pure CBD extract from hemp. Unlike a full spectrum CBD, CBD isolate does not contain any THC (the psychoactive compound in cannabis). The difference between an isolate and other CBD products is that most other CBD products will contain a small percentage of THC.
To create the isolate, the cannabis plant undergoes an extraction method to pull all of the compounds from the plant, including THC. What’s left is CBD isolate, which looks like crystals. These crystals are ground into a fine powder, which can then be used to make CBD products like our EQOL™ organic pomade and edge control.
The result is all the benefits of CBD — nothing more or less.
CBD’s Impact on Hair Health
CBD hair products aren’t hard to come by these days, but the benefits go well beyond marketing. Through our journey in making EQOL™, we’ve also noticed that using a CBD-infused hair pomade means not having to use one that’s filled with unnatural chemicals. We love that CBD is a gift from nature and offers a safer way to style your hair.
When you’re not using a natural hair product, you’re saying no to tough chemicals that do more harm than good. Some hair products can strip your hair and scalp of oils it needs to stay nourished, which leads to unhealthy hair.
Unlike most pomades and hair products you find in your local stores, our organic CBD pomade actually does something for your hair beyond styling.
For starters, CBD is rich in Vitamins A, C, and E (which are also antioxidants), and Omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9. Vitamin E is a must for hair care because it nourishes and moisturizes your hair and scalp. Itchy scalps create flaking, which makes your hair look messy and dirty. It also makes your hair stronger and promotes new hair growth, which is good news for anyone that’s ever gotten a bad haircut (it happens to the best of us).
Antioxidants can also protect your hair from harsh free radicals in the environment. Think of it as a barrier that keeps your hair and scalp healthy while delivering nutrients right to the source.
Omega oils will also improve your scalp and hair quality. Stronger hair is easier to style, looks better, and is so much easier to take care of.
What’s in Our EQOL™ Organic Pomade
We’ve poured countless hours into developing our organic pomade formula because we know that perfection is the only acceptable standard. We know the struggles of hair styling (we have hair too, ya know), so we tried and tested a multitude of organic oils until we found the perfect balance:
100 mg CBD Isolate
The crowning jewel of EQOL™, our CBD isolate puts all the nutrients and benefits of CBD into every style. But unlike most products that are turning to CBD because it’s hip and trending, we know the science behind why CBD is so impactful for hair care.
Another all-natural wonder, coconut oil stimulates hair growth and naturally moisturizes hair. It adds luster to your hair, protects it from breakage, and tames the frizz so you can get those perfect edges.
Like CBD, bergamot oil is rich in antioxidants to protect your hair. It shields the scalp from oxidative stress and free radicals, which can make your hair look and feel healthier. It’s also powerful in removing the dirt and oils that cause your hair to dry out.
We use a citrus bergamot oil because citrus contains vitamins your hair needs to grow and thrive. It reduces oil buildup and keeps your scalp free of flakes.
Healthy hair begins at the roots, which is why we’ve included sandalwood in our formula. Sandalwood has been shown in numerous studies to target hair health at the follicle to prolong your hair’s life and support healthy growth.
Aside from its moisturizing properties, beeswax is a favorite ingredient for hair because it doesn’t clog hair follicles like most hair chemicals or products. It smooths and straightens the hair, helps your hair hold its style, and seals each strand to reduce breakage and split ends. It’s also been found to be less irritating to the scalp than other products, so it’s a safer choice, too.
