Deep conditioning with Carrot Oil


Since moving to America I have been unable to purchase this product. Sally’s use  to stock it apparently. Typical that they should stop when I move here and there is one down the road from me. Next time I go to the UK I will bring back at least ten bottles! I will be purchasing it from Amazon though while I’m here. In the UK it is so cheap to purchase (usually under £2 at Paks ) but it’s price is not a true reflection of how beneficial it is for your hair.  It can also be used on your skin! I find most natural products can be used for both your hair and skin.  I use it to condition my hair after shampooing. It can be heated up in a cup of hot water or you can apply it to your hair cold and sit under a heated cap. I prefer using a heated cap. I section my hair into four and apply it evenly, making sure that the ends are coated well.  You can mix it with your usual conditioner or use it by itself.  Once my hair is saturated in it I cover my head with a plastic cap and sit under my heated cap for 25-30 minutes.  Then I simply rinse my hair.

Some people may prefer to use it before washing as a ‘pre-poo’ conditioning process. This depends on your preference as some may find that it makes their hair too greasy. My hair soaks up moisture like a sponge so I prefer a simple rinse to keep most of it in my hair. If your hair is feeling dry you could just apply it as a moisturiser as well. The benefits I have noticed from using this are: less shedding, reduced number of split ends, it adds shine and moisturises my hair and scalp really well! So I would highly recommend this product. I haven’t tried any other brands but I guess if it’s 100% natural, carrot oil is pretty much the same anywhere. Does anyone else use this or is there another oil you use? Perhaps you use olive oil or coconut oil. If you try this let us know how it worked for you and if you know any stores that sell it in the States please let me know! It’s a shame Walmart doesn’t sell it.
