A while ago I purchased the Yes to carrots Nourishing shampoo and Pampering conditioner to try out. Yes to Carrots is one of my favorite drugstore brands since their products are composed of mostly natural ingredients (free of parabens, silicones, petroleum products, phthalates and Sodium lauryl sulfate) and still have an affordable price tag! .This shampoo and conditioner duo is meant to provide “rich moisture and nourishment” for dry, coarse hair and have an impressive list of ingredients which is the main reason I picked them up. Just FYI, I have naturally wavy, thick hair that usually feels dry and frizzy after washing.
The website claims : It cleanses, nourishes and moisturizes your hair and scalp with Dead Sea Minerals, revitalizing and protecting it and leaving you with luminous, luscious locks.
Key ingredients : Carrot Juice, Carrot Seed Oil, Chamomilla Recutita Flower Oil, Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Pumpkin Extract, Melon Extract, Wheat Germ Oil, Orange Fruit Extract, Honey Extract.
After using it for a few times, I can say that this is a good shampoo which lathers up nicely and has a light pleasant smell. It cleanses well and rinses out easily without leaving my hair coarse to touch that makes me feel as if all the moisture has been stripped from my hair. So although it doesn’t dry out my strands, I would have really loved this shampoo if it was more smoothing and replenishing for my dry hair.
The website claims : Yes To Carrots Nourishing Conditioner nourishes, conditions, softens, smoothes and tames even the wildest of tresses.
Key ingredients : Carrot Juice, Carrot Seed Oil, Matricaria Flower Oil, Olive Fruit Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Pumpkin Extract, Sweet Potato Extract, Melon Extract, Jojoba Seed Oil, Orange Extract, Wheat Germ Oil, Honey Extract, Pomegranate Extract.
The conditioner has a thick, creamy consistency and feels very hydrating when applied to wet hair so I had high hopes from this one. After rinsing and drying (I let my hair air dry), I could tell my hair felt a little heavy but not as smooth and moisturized. Since I am prone to poofy hair, I like that the conditioner helped a little to keep the volume down. However, I will not be repurchasing it because I don’t find it hydrating enough for my thick, dry tresses that always need an extra dose of moisture to keep them really soft and touchable.
Hopefully this review would be useful to those thinking about trying out these hair-care products by Yes to Carrots. Let me know what you think.
