Carrot Oil Treatment Options
- Conditioning and Strengthening Treatment: Pour some carrot oil into a plastic bowl and place into a bigger bowl with boiling hot water. When carrot oil is hot enough, apply to the length of your hair focusing on the ends. Then layer on any creamy moisturizing conditioner you have on hand. When every strand is thoroughly coated, cover your head with a shower cap and leave it on overnight. The next day shampoo and condition as usual and then say hello to soft and moisturized hair. With repeated treatments, expect your hair to grow stronger and split ends will be eventually eliminated.
- Hot Oil Treatment: Repeat the step above for heating the carrot oil but instead of applying to the length of the hair, apply directly to the scalp with light strokes. Massage thoroughly then cover your hair with a shower cap for up to an hour. You can also sit under a dryer for about 15 minutes. Follow up with your shampooing and conditioning steps.
The best complementary oils for carrot oil are rosehip, evening primrose, coconut and tamanu oils. If you usually like to add essential oils to everything, neroli and ylang ylang essential oils work well with carrot oil/products.
