  • This carrot oil is specifically for hair growth so you can use it primarily as a scalp massage oil but feel free to seal with it or use it as a leave-in oil conditioner. 
  • You can also add 1 – 2 teaspoons to your styling cream or butter. Do not use on skin. This is not a recipe for the skin. I will upload another recipe later on for the skin.
  • Do not overuse carrot oil. Too much will cause build up and make your hair and scalp greasy.
