If you’re ever looking for cheap entertainment on a Friday night, Target is THE PLACE to go. I’m only half kidding, too. I stopped by last Friday around 9:30ish to satisfy a craving for Power C Vitamin Water, and the store was hoppin’!
People buy some weird sh*t in the middle of the night, LOL! Like Vitamin Waters. I spent more time people watching than actually shopping.
But I did swing by the beauty aisles; I picked up this bottle of Yes To Carrots Pampering Conditioner for Normal to Dry Hair ($8) on a whim.
Like their Yes to Cucumbers Conditioner (SO GOOD!), this one is also free of petroleum products, SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), paraben and silicones. At the same time, it’s cruelty-free and 99.8% natural, made with minerals, the company says, that were collected from the Dead Sea, as well as other cool stuff like carrot seed oil and honey. It’s a very diverse group of mostly natural ingredients.
The scent isn’t what I expected from a product named after carrots. I detect notes of baby powder and soap first, with maybe a hint of eau de carrot at the finish. I don’t think it’s as refreshing as the Yes to Cucumbers products I’ve tried, but I do think it’s pleasant.
The product feels a little thick to me, and, after rinsing and drying, my hair looks and feels heavier than before. But, since I’m prone to poofy hair, I don’t mind at all. If, however, you’re concerned about retaining volume, the lift-retaining Yes to Cucumbers version might be a better fit.
Minor quibbles aside, I’m saying Yes to Carrots Pampering Conditioner. I love the list of ingredients, and I think it’s a respectable detangling conditioner. Still, give the Yes to Cucumbers version a sniff, because you might like the scent of that one even better.
