Everyone knows the importance of carrot for good health. But did you knew, that carrots can also help you to stop hair fall and get shiny and thick hair? Will that carrot increase your hair growth? Well, it does. So, you may either store carrots for future use or prepare carrot oil out of it to get back your hair growth.
- What I did was, I took some carrots and grated it using a grater.
- After grating, I filled these carrots in a mason jar along with an oil i.e. Castor, olive or coconut oil. Then, I kept this jar of the mixture in the dark room for a week.
- Once the oil had turned into an orange, I removed the carrots and used as fertiliser in my garden and extracted the oil into a clean container.
- Now, you just have to apply this oil, once a week before you go for shampooing. You just have to keep oil for half an hour. This will increase your hair growth and reduce the hair breakage.
I hope I was able to help you. Well let me tell you a secret, I found carrot oil most effective and it increased my growth and got shiny hair.
