Yes to carrots!

My hair seems to love this as a secondary rinse out after my cheap cleansing conditoner(tresseme natural) and as a leave in! It really helped define my curles, reduce frizz, and add gloss.

I haven't found that Alba leave in locally but am still keeping my eye out for it.

Also ordered some whole flax seeds and am going to attempt to make gel when it gets in. Can a bit of apple cider vinegar be used in gel to help acidify it? I was thinking of putting like a half teaspoon into the water as it boils.

Thanks!
