Carrots not only improve your eyesight, but also your hair growth. We don’t say that, experts say. Before you rush to the kitchen inventing your own carrot hair mask, let’s take some time and first understand the properties of carrots and how it works on our hair.

The carrot packs a Powerful punch of vitamins A, K and C, which together form an antioxidant that repairs damaged hair follicles and promotes regeneration of new hair follicles.

It also has a high proportion of vitamin B complex, ranging from vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6. Together, these vitamins help lock moisture into the hair, remove frizz, and add flexibility and shine to the hair.

In addition, it is rich in beta-carotene and vitamin C, which stimulate blood flow, strengthen hair roots, seal cuticles and prevent them from breaking.

Added to this, carrots have a good chunk of vitamin E, potassium and phosphorus that form a protective barrier against harmful free radicals, increasing the supply of oxygen, which in turn helps the hair strands to better absorb nutrients. Now that it’s been proven beyond a syllable of doubt, let’s start exploring how to wear carrots in your hair.
