The oil is used in cosmetics and in cuisine worldwide. Hemp has also been used in the health community for years as a source of nutrients and minerals.

That doesn’t mean, however, that the oil is completely useless.
Let’s take a look at some of the oil’s known benefits to determine if it might be of use to hair loss sufferers.
