You must use carrot oil consistently to see any benefit. Although it will make your hair healthy, it can also make it slightly greasy, so use sparingly. Carrot oil is not a cure for short hair; do not expect to see the growth immediately. Also, do not expect that your hair will grow much faster with carrot oil alone.

You can buy carrot oil at many places. Most beauty supply and drug stores sell at least one product of carrot oil.
