WTF CARROT SHAMPOO? | YES TO CARROTS SHAMPOO REVIEW & MY HAIRCARE ROUTINE


I think every girl hates washing her hair. I am that girl. I wash my hair as little as possible trying to keep it to once a week. I mentioned in a few posts about my paranoia regarding hair loss and how I switched to sulphate free shampoos as a solution. The clogged hair in the drain post-shower causes a sinking feeling in my stomach, but simply brushing my hair through with a wide tooth comb pre-shower and using a sulphate-free shampoo remedies this nicely. In fact, I just washed my long hair and there wasn't a single hair left in the bath or the plug hole. I have been using the Yes To Carrots Shampoo (£5) for a few months now, and here is how I have been finding it. 


A carrot shampoo might sound off-putting initially, but I watched a Farah Dhukai DIY insta-tutorial (you know how much I love an insta-tutorial) where she kindly explained all the amazing benefits of carrots for hair. Carrots are supposed to be fantastic for repairing hair breakage and strengthening damaged hair. My hair isn't  particularly damaged or broken but I do feel it is thinning gradually over time. You can see that post below.


1 INGREDIENT TO: -STOP HAIR BREAKAGE, THICKEN HAIR -GET RID OF DRY SKIN, DARK SPOTS, ACNE AND GET THE BEST SKIN EVER👏🏾 💇🏽💇🏾‍♂️Does your hair break so much that youre considering cutting it all off? Is your skin so dry and flakey and/or do you have dark spots/acne/aging skin🐫 THEN this 1 ingredient is for YOU and its SUPER EASY TO GET AND ITS SO CHEAP!!! ❄️Once the season starts changing my skin gets super dry and the cold, dry air makes my hair weaker and break easily, SO every year around this time THISSSS is my FAV! I have been using this in the winter for 4+ years now and believe me when i tell you this - its dope. ALL YOU NEED: ✅100% carrot juice - make your own or buy it (make sure its 100% pure) - COST = $5. I get 3 uses out of my bottle (so $1.60 per use) ✅cotton sheet mask - pack of 50 from amazon - COST = $5 (10 cents per mask) TOTAL COST FOR HAIR AND SKIN = $1.70 - WIN. yay for math🤓 Fill a spray bottle with the carrot juice apply it all over your hair and scalp 🐰soak the cotton sheet mask in the juice apply to your face ⏰Leave on for 20 min Do this 1-2 times per week *if you have lighter hair that is very porous do a test patch first to make sure the carrot doesnt stain your hair, same thing goes if you have very fair skin. always do a test patch no matter what! 🐰WHY RABBITS LIKE CARROT SO MUCH AND WHY YOU SHOULD TOO: -JAM PACKED with vitamins A,K,C and B VITAMINS- INCREDIBLE for hair thickness, hair STRENGTH and SHINE and hair LIFE! makes your hair smooth and healthy- great for damaged hair -Vitamins A and K are great for aging skin and Vitamin C brightens dark spots, dark circles, uneven skin+pigmentation. -Anti-inflammitory so it soothes/prevents/gets rid of acne! -If you really want your hair and skin to be the best its ever looked - i challenge you to drink 1 glass of carrot juice PER day and after 1 month, youll notice a HUGE difference. If you do this challenge, youll also have the strongest nails on the block 👇🏽Tag a friend who could use this and 👍🏾like this video for more cheap and easy ways to take care of your hair and skin! ❤️ILUFAM Disclaimer: always do a test patch 1st

Because I wait so long between washes my scalp can get dry and itchy at times. The carrot shampoo does not smell very strongly of carrots at all. It is quite a natural, inoffensive scent. The lack of sulphate means that the shampoo doesn't get all sudsy, Herbal Essence orgasm-inducing bubbles, if you know what I mean. It still lathers but only gently and it feels both soothing and nourishing on the scalp. I am halfway through the bottle and have used it over a dozen times. I enjoy the scent and the sensation and find it works well paired with almost any conditioner


After conditioning my hair, I wash the rest of my body allowing my hair to dry as much as possible in the shower. Then, I use an oversized T-shirt to "towel" dry as it is softer an causes less frizz and breakage. Once I am happy with the state of my damp hair, I usually apply a pump of the L'Oreal Elvive Hair Serum, which smells divine and leave my hair to air dry. Unfortunately, the shampoo isn't bright orange which would be really cool. It's clear and I apply a generous amount directly to my scalp as that's where it works its magic. I take care to massage it into my scalp like the hairdresser does mostly because it feels so good and allegedly does something to the hair follicles encouraging growth. My hair has always been long and I never see that changing to be honest. 


Overall, I think this is one of my favourite haircare products of all time. I don't know if it is the placebo effect or not but my hair feels really healthy and clean after using it for a prolonged period of time. All I want is to wash my hair as little as possible. I don't use dry shampoo very much as I dislike product build up and most dry shampoos leave a white residue in my hair, although Batiste do a really good one which comes out brown instead of white. Consequently, my shampoo has to do most of the work and this is the only shampoo I have used that keeps my hair presentable for seven days. Thank you so much for reading, please leave a comment with your favourite haircare products and shampoos down below. It would mean a lot to me. Hope you're having a great week. Take care.

What is your go-to shampoo?

Love 
Kiran

  1. Glad you are loving this shampoo, it sounds great. I am the opposite of you, I love to wash my hair but I only do 2-3 times a week since I don't want to wash all natural oils from my scalp, but I use lots of dry shampoo.

  4. Wow this sounds promising! I've been suffering from dry hair due to dyeing. And do you think it will help with the clogged pores? I heard most shampoos are a culprit of forehead clogged pores. :)

  21. I love washing my hair but these days I have cut it down to washing every alternate days as oppose to everyday in the past. I am planning to switch to sulfate free haircare after this too, I think it's the best for my hair and scalp.
