Question "Yes to ...." products

Are the Yes to Carrots, Cucumbers, and Tomatoes hair products any good?

I never heard of them before today.

I've used the Yes to Carrots conditioner before and I really liked it. Haven't tried anything else, though.

i don't think YTC's is FULL of cones. It does have the D-cone middle to bottom of the ingredient list. I love YTC's. If it builds up on your hair you simply loo poo it out. It give great clumps and I love the smell

ETA-- actually the cone is pretty far down the list. Just used it

I agree - I love YTCarrots and YTCukes. YTCarrots does have amodimethicone but YTCukes doesn't. I've found they both soak in my hair really well and provide good detangling. Wavy, I'm glad you said you still use YTCarrots, b/c I've been debating how "safe" it is to use products that have a cone in them but farther down the list of ingredients. It's good to know that you've been able to use it without build-up.

ETA-- it's the D-cone, not A. I put A in my last post.
I don't use YTC all the time but every once in a while. It's actually almost gone and i started in March.... so there you go

I have used the Yes To Carrots conditioner before. I liked it, but I like other things better that don't have any cones in them.
FYI, it isn't full of cones, it only has one, dimethicone, and it is pretty far down on the list. I could go about two months, maybe more, without having to do a low poo.

Thumbs up

I just used the Yes to Cucumbers Conditioner today for the first time, and I really liked it!! It seemed very moisturizing, and my hair feels softer. I also liked the smell - it seemed very fresh and clean.

BTW, the Cucumber conditioner has no cones in it.
