Ingredients:

Spring Water, Dead Sea Water, Magnesium Chloride, Chamomila Recutita (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Olea Europa (Olive) Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Calendula (Calendula Officinalis) Flower, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Juice, Ipomoera Batatas (Sweet Potato) Extract, Cucumis Melo (Melon) Fruit Extract, Dimethicone, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Honey (Mel) Extract, Fragrance (Parfum).

My Experience:


I've used this conditioner twice to detangle dry, kinked up hair that was air dried loose (as opposed to in twists or braids).

Fragrance:
The fragrance, while not offensive, leaves much to be desired. When hubby smelled it all he could think of was 'just let yo soouullll glow!' I suppose it reminded him of jerhi curl activator... or some other old school product. I feel him. I'm a fan of floral or sweet smelling conditioners, but this one just has a simple clean fragrance.

Detangling and Consistency:
What this product lacks in the fragrance department, it totally makes up for in it's moisturizing and detangling capabilities! After applying generously to my wet hair, the tangles began to melt away... very reminiscent of the detangling powers of Herbal Essence's Totally Twisted. The slip factor was magnificent and light consistency made for easy application. I noticed the slightest sud-sing... it was kind of cool because a quarter sized amount seemed to double once you began massaging it in. This means I ended up using much less (than the TT) for the same results.

Moisture:
Upon rinsing, it left my hair soft, moisturized, and clean feeling. I've used many conditioners that made my hair feel soft and smooth while it was in, but upon rinsing left my hair dry and stripped. This conditioner made my hair soft while it was in, and equally soft and moisturized after the rinse. I'm in love!

Price:
Although it's a bit pricey, you don't need very much, and I feel that it's worth it! Unfortunately, it does contain one cone (dimethicone) that must be washed out with shampoo, so if you're strictly CG, you may want to skip this one. If you're not, join the club... I'm definitely saying YES TO CARROTS!

Bottom Line:

Definitely worth a try! I'll be adding this one to my rotation.


Have you tried it? What did you think?

The yes to cucumbers conditioner is just as good if your strictly cg. Great review as always!

I love this conditioner. Its extremely moisturizing and it makes it so much easier for me to detangle my hair. I have to admit that this is the only product I can detangle with, easily. It is pricey and I've been stretching one bottle out since last summer and I want to try the mask really bad!

I want to try it now.

lala said...

I just bought 3 bottles of the "yes to cucumbers conditioner"...can't wait to try it :)

Awesome review!! <3333

I started using this conditioner 2 weeks ago twice a week, I also love how soft it leaves my hair. I think I prefer it over my Giovanni Deep Moist. For me, the end results is worth the use of a little dimethicone.

Uche said...

OMGoodness, I literally bought this a few hours before you wrote this post, lol=o) I just used it tonight, and I absolutely *LOVE IT!* My hair was so soft and moisturized after I used it; I'm in love=oD I'm going to be saying "yes" to Yes to Carrots from now on.

I used this condish on yesterday and loved it as well. It made my hair really soft, but since I'm strictly CG, it's going back since it has cones. I'll pick up the Yes to Cucumbers instead. I agree about the smell as well. I kept sniffing trying to pinpoint the scent and got nothing but that's okay because, as you wrote, it's great for everything else. Great product!

Jessica said...

I've used this conditioner for a while and it's great for a short deep conditioning treatment too! It's pricey, but I feel like I get my money's worth out of it.

Notthecoolmom said...

I love it, it's one of my staple products, but I shampoo every time I wash my hair. It makes my hair feel great.It smells like baby powder to me. I don't like products that smell too strong so I like the light scent.

I bought some samples of the yes to carrots from Target last week.. I will try them soon

I bought the yes to tomatoes shampoo and conditioner from Ross for like 4 bucks each. I only tried the shampoo and I liked it.

I saw this at Target and Walgreens and have been wanting to try all their products, thanks for the review.

This has been my staple conditioner brand for awhile (at least 1 year). I have been using YTCucumbers as a cowash and leave in and my hair is loving me for it.

i use the yes to carrots "mud" mask.. i put mud in quotes cause its no where near a muddy consistency more like a heavy cream. but my hair really love this stuff and it takes it all soft n detangles my 4c hair with ease!

Vera said...

Oh yeah...it's going on my shopping list for sure now! I've been eying this and other "Yes to" products at Walgreens online for some time.

Sharon said...

I love the c for cucumbers conditioner too!I got lucky and found it at Ross for 3 bucks. Not much of a smell but I like it as detagling condish day to day. Great as a leave-in for post wash sprucing.

Lucita said...

I just started using Yes to Carrots about two weeks ago and I absolutely LOVE it! This is the best moisturizer I have found for my natural hair so far (I BC'd on March 15th 2010)!

I haven't used Yes to carrots yet....but I did find another product line that has me hooked. It's called Renpure, and you can find it at Walgreens or CVS. It is a new organic paraben free line of shampoos and conditioners. I love them. But I do really want to try the yes to carrots/cucumbers line, because I am hearing great things here. :)

Can someone tell me what cg is?

I use yes to carrots conditioner and I love the way it makes my hair feels. I use it as a cowash.

octobercurls said...

OK, I saw the hair mask at Ross (IDK why) for $3.99. I am going to snatch 2 jars up tomorrow

mangomadness said...

I love Yes to Carrots! I've been using it for abut two years. I used it to cowash when I had a TWA. I don't cowash anymore so I use it as a leave in. It's very moisturizing.

Beware--It has zero slip. I have tightly coiled hair and when I tried it to detangle my hair yelled at me. I still feel bad about it...

Anonymous said...

They must have changed the recipe for this. I have a bottle of this right in front of me and it doesnt have dimethicone in it....and the ingredients list that you posted is very different than from what is on the bottle.

SouthernBelle said...

I just tried this shampoo and conditioner last night and I love it! The shampoo left my hair feeling clean but not stripped, and the conditioner felt like a newborn baby's mane! I've tried other things in the Yes to Carrots and Yes to Baby Carrots line, so I was hoping this was just as good. I went to Wally World just to buy this, and it does not dissapoint!
