Are sulphate shampoos causing your hair loss? Why I’m saying Yes To Carrots!

11 Feb

I’m constantly searching for hair products that do not contain sulfates or silicon. My reasons are as follows:

Sulfates, which are very common in shampoo and skin care products, strip your hair (or skin) of natural oils causing it to dry out. In fact, they even aggravate the problem of hair loss. And silicone shampoos or conditioners can weigh your hair down and make it look flat and greasy, especially if you’ve naturally curly hair.

Sometimes with natural shampoos and conditioners you only get a day or so out of your hair before you need to wash it again, however when I used Yes To Carrots Nourishing Carrot Shampoo I found I got up to four days (I know, I’m scummy, but believe me with hair as long as mine you don’t want wash it every other day.) I apply the shampoo, massage my scalp and leave it there for a couple of more minutes almost like a mask for my scalp.

I also use the conditioner from this line which I adore, though it might be a little light for my very thick hair, or perhaps I should leave it on for longer.

Overall I’ve been so impressed with this line that I’ve repurchased their body wash twice and image I will purchase it again. The smell is absolutely gorgeous, one of the nicest, cleanest scents I’ve ever come across.

Yes to Carrots Eye and Makeup Remover is next on my ‘wish list’!

To buy try amazon or click here for Irish retailers

    Lots of chemists and Debenhams are also stocking this, or at least in Cork anyhow. Anyhow try their other products? Would be interested in hearing feedback. Wish there were more organic products like this on the market!

    Hi Julie, Debenhams in Cork are no longer stock this I’m afraid – I’ve been buying it from – a fantastic Irish cosmetic website – very helpful to deal with and some great offers on this product in the 500ml size. If you spend over 60euros it’s free shipping!
