Benefits of Carrot Oil to Hair


Derived from the seeds of carrot plants, carrot seed oil has an earthy aroma. This gentle oil is reputed to have antibacterial and healing properties, according to “Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals,” and can help infuse your dry skin, scalp and hair with needed moisture. Whether you choose to use it on its own, in a blend with other essential oils or as part of a hair rinse, carrot oil helps keep your hair healthy and shiny.

It is well known for its ability to revival dull hair follicles.

You can stimulate the growth of new cells in your hair by applying carrot oil to you hair and scalp because carrot oil is also a natural source of vitamins A, E and beta-carotene, and offers much needed moisture to dry scalps. Natural oils encourage your dry scalp to create more sebum, which moisturizes your hair and scalp and promotes overall hair health and shine. It is ideal to massage it into your scalp two or more times per week.

How to Make a Carrot Oil Rinse

Make your own healthy hair rinse by combining three to five drops of carrot oil for every 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and 2 cups of water.

Mix the ingredients, and use it as your final rinse, after washing your hair and rinsing the shampoo out. For maximum benefits, let the rinse sit on your hair for a few minutes before rinsing it with cool water.

Carrot oil is good for the following:
luscious hair growth,

repairing split ends,

balancing and healing the scalp, skin detoxifying and rejuvenation, strengthening the hair,

healing of skin irritations etc.



Some one asked me this question so I saw the need for this post, homemade products are necessary especially that time when you are not buoyant and can’t afford the store bought ones.

1, Peel the outer layer of skin from the carrots.

2, Grate the carrots or blend in a blender

3, Put in a pot and pour enough oil (either coconut or almond oil) over the tops of the pieces to cover.

4, Cover the pot and cook on the lowest setting until the carrot pieces have softened and the oil has become dark orange.

5,Pour the contents of the pot through a mesh strainer and into a glass jar.

6,Cover the jar and store in the refrigerator until needed.

Hope this helps
Try it and let’s know your result.
