You’ve heard that carrots are good for eye sight, right? They contain beta-carotene, a substance that the body converts to vitamin A, an important nutrient for eye health. But did you also know that carrots can be good for your hair?
Here at Mane ‘n Tail, we did know that! That’s why we’ve created Carrot Oil Crème, a leave-in treatment that locks in moisture to help stop damage at the roots, leaving your hair longer, stronger and healthier.
Dr. George Obikoya, with the Vitamins and Nutrients Center, tells us that the certain vitamins and minerals can play a key role in keeping your hair healthy. Without certain nutrients, hair growth process will slow or stop altogether. “There is a rather adequate research basis to justify product effectiveness claims for a vitamin, mineral and amino acid complex designed to supply the nutrients needed by healthy growing hair,” he says. “Think about it. How many sick people do you know with a full head of healthy hair?”
But how does the carrot’s benefits make it from the garden to your hair? Well, there’s more to the carrot than just the oblong orange vegetable we eat. The flower of the carrot plant also has many beneficial characteristics. In this flower, we find the seed of the carrot plant. Carrot seed oil is extracted from this seed. “Carrot oil has many nutrients good for hair, including vitamins A and E,” explains Allison Davis. “It promotes hair growth and can prevent split ends, which helps to retain the growth. If you use carrot oil regularly, it can strengthen and protect your hair and often makes your hair shinier.”
The Original Mane ‘n Tail Carrot Oil Crème will rejuvenate your hairs’ natural elasticity. It will help prevent breakage and split ends by strengthening your hair. This leave-in, natural balancing treatment, also helps with frizziness, a side effect of dry hair. It is safe and gentle for all hair types, specifically designed for relaxed and/or chemically treated hair.
Don’t believe me? Just listen to what Brown Skin2 from Atlanta says in a review of Carrot Oil Crème on The Long Hair Care Forum – The Ultimate Hair Care & Beauty Source for Women of Color: “I have used the carrot oil crème, always followed with the Mane n’ Tail’s leave-in spray, Hair Strengthener, and it makes my hair very shiny and black.”
“It smelled like Carrot Spice, I really liked the soft scent,” writes another reviewer on the website K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple Sista. “I have been using it to moisturize my ends and I am loving it. It didn’t revert my flat ironed hair or wear it down.”
Mane ‘n Tail Carrot Oil Crème proves that the benefits of carrots are more than what meets the eye!
