Review: Yes To Carrots Hair & Scalp Moisturising Mud Mask

As my hair gets longer, I notice the return of an old enemy: split ends. We all know that no haircare product can heal split ends (yet), but regularly deep conditioning can help keep them at bay, so a well-priced, high-performing mask that I can use once or twice a week is definitely good news.

I've found exactly that in Yes To Carrots' hair and scalp mask. It's a tub of sherbet orange coloured opaque creamy goo that contains just about everything bar the kitchen sink in terms of natural ingredients: Dead Sea water and silt, olive oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba, macadamia, sweet potato, pumpkin, carrot (of course), orange juice, spirulina and algae, chamomile... the ingredients list reads more like a salad recipe than a cosmetic product.

It has a sweet but subtle scent that I've never smelt anywhere before - probably a result of the unique mix of ingredients. It comes in a screw-top tub, allowing you to dip in your hand and pick up a satisfyingly hefty pawful to spread on your head and hair. The directions recommend leaving it on towel-dried hair for 12-15 minutes - good news if, like us, you enjoy lingering in the bathtub with a book.

The results: noticeably more shiny, bouncy hair that feels smooth to the touch and not at all weighed down. I haven't noticed any real difference to my scalp, but it was pretty OK to start with.

It costs £8.20 for 250ml - a snip compared to some of the more high-end salon products we've tried. And given the amount of natural ingredients it packs, and that it's formulated without parabens (though I did spot Dimethicone on the ingredient list), it should be a winner with those who like their products natural as well as effective.
