What is carrot honey and what is it for?

It is nothing more than a carrot jam. Made from the mixture of pieces of vegetable with sugar that are kept in a jar for a certain period until you get a paste with a consistency similar to that of honey. It serves to take advantage of the antioxidant vitamins and minerals of the carrot to care for the skin and hair.

Rafael Soares: “Because of the wetting property of sugar and some substances released by the carrot, it maintains the ability of water to enter the hair and provides deep hydration.”

2. Natural product against hair loss

Rafael Soares: “Due to the anti-inflammatory properties, coming from vitamin E and other minerals from the carrot, which are present in honey, it can be used as a natural product in preventing hair loss.”

Rafael Soares: “Due to the presence of sugar, when applying honey with light pressure on the skin, it will have an exfoliating action, which can also be done on the scalp.”

Rafael recommends letting the carrot honey act for a maximum of 20 minutes on the skin or scalp and spacing the applications. For example, in the first month, do it once a week, then increase the interval to biweekly or monthly.

Cautions and contraindications

According to the dermatologist, carrot honey cannot be used frequently, at most once a week, and should not be left on the skin or hair for a long time. Because “despite having many benefits, sugar itself is very harmful to the skin and hair, so it needs to act briefly, leading to hydration, but it must not penetrate the scalp or face.” For eventual use, leaving the honey to act for about 15 to 20 minutes, there are no contraindications.
