Things you will need to make carrot oil at home

* One carrot
* Olive oil
* A mason jar


* First you will need to grate the carrot and put it in the mason jar. Choose a jar that is made of glass so you can see and measure the contents inside.
* Next, pour some olive oil into the jar, and when it reaches the brim, close the lid.
* Store this jar in a cool, dark place for at least a week.
* When you notice that the oil has turned orange (the colour of the grated carrot), strain it and then transfer it into a clean container.
* Massage this oil onto your scalp for 30 minutes before you wash your hair with a mild shampoo.
