We’ve gotten quite a few inquiries from people asking us whether or not we had tried Yes To Carrots products. I get the interest. It’s readily available at most Target stores, and the price isn’t bad either. But I was skeptical. I know that in the grand scheme of things, this shampoo isn’t the best for you, but overall, it’s a much safer option. I’m a die hard John Master’s fan, but, it’s expensive and I have to go out of my way to get it, usually leaving me running out of shampoo and conditioner. Plus, I have two small children, who I swear have secret debit cards to my checking account, because it’s frequently running on E. I’ve tried countless other kinds of shampoo and conditioner on my ornery hair, most with crappy results. So truthfully, I didn’t hold out much hope for Yes To Carrots, either.
I base my liking of hair products based on the comb test. Does it get the knots out easily? Is my head sore from getting said knots out? I think we have a winner here. Both the shampoo and conditioner smell good, it washes and conditions well, and my hair doesn’t look like it was stuck in a light socket. For about $7.99 per bottle, I can’t really ask more of a shampoo at that price. Better yet, there’s more in the bottle than other shampoos that I’ve tried for the same price. The bottles last me FOREVER, which I love. I have to cut corners somewhere. I refuse to buy processed crap foods with loads of preservatives, so I suppose that this is my cutting corners. But you know? I don’t really feel cheated.
I’ve also tried Yes to Tomatoes!, as well as Yes to Cucumbers! Both work just as well and I have to say, I love the scent of each of them, and they both work equally as well.
Older versions of the shampoo have propylene glycol as well as dimethicone, however, from what I can tell, they’ve eliminated those ingredients from the product. The conditioner however, still contains dimethicone. Overall, not the worst ingredient ever, but one that isn’t a favorite on our list, and one we try to avoid if we can.
Get it: You can pick up Yes to Carrots at most Target stores, as well as some other bigger chain drug stores.
