Good product but needs a different pump
I decided to try the Monoi line of products just a few weeks ago. My hair is thick, coarse, wavy, natural, and my main problem with keeping it healthy is needing to color frequently. So far the Monoi conditioning mask is a dream, and I can use it as a leave-in for a full day, but by the end of the day my hair is a frizz-ball, which is not the fault of Monoi, but just that my hair does not like leave-ins. The best thing about the mask is that each time I use it someone asks me what perfume I'm wearing, and I also get a lot of attention from my husband - the smell is like an aphrodisiac. The Monoi split-end sealer is also a favorite because it loosens my waves, so I use my flat-iron very rarely now. The downside to the split-end sealer is that it dries out my hair with repeated use, so I'd have to shampoo everyday (and I don't). The new Monoi Leave-In-Conditioner both turned my hair into a frizz-ball and dried it out immediately - I won't try it again. But the good news after all the trial and error with this line, is that my hair is about 90% stronger, maybe more. I no longer have strands of hair to clean from my comb, no sheet of hairs in the sink after styling, and when I shampoo I now lose 1 clump of maybe 25 hairs rather than 4 or 5 clumps as before. This review is about the Monoi Sacred Serum, and I like it and will keep using it. My frustration with the serum is that the pump is ergonomically inefficient. The spout does not extend far enough to deposit the serum into my hand; it just kinda squirts some out onto the side of my hand, and I have to scramble to quickly get it onto my hair. If I hold the bottle at an angle to try pumping the contents into the middle of my palm, then the pump does not work at all. So,I hope Carol's Daughter will work on that pump - it's a cute pump, but not doing its job. I love this line and happy I tried it. My CD standards are the Healthy Hair Butter and regular strength Hair Milk.

Good Stuff
I have been using this for about two weeks now and I use it to seal after I moisturize when I wash my hair. It leaves my hair shiny and more importantly super manageable. I will continue to use this product and see what it does for my breakage. But I love this so much I just might have to repurchase:)

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!
I am natural (4c) and I just got some two strand twists as a protective style and they are tight (maybe a little too tight) and where I was tying my scarf at the area was really sore, I had my boyfriend take a pic for me to see what the area looked like, of course it was red with a few bumps from my hair being pulled tightly so I went through all of my products (I have quite a few as I am still trying to figure out what works best for my natural hair) and I found the sample of the monoi oil that I received on a previous carols daughter order. I read what it does and decided to put it on the tender area in the back of my head and I instantly felt relief! I also put some on my edges. I have to buy this product. That is what I am doing right now.

nice and light moisturizer!
I am African american and I have long hair but its really dry. As soon as I put the oil on and applied heat via flatiron or blow dryer it added a great shine and made my hair very smooth! This will definitely be apart of my daily hair care regimen.

The Best hands down!
This is what you want to use on your hair. It's great! It leaves your hair soft and smooth, not greasy. Just wish it came in a larger size.

It Works!
I've been natural for 6-7 years. My hair never acclimated to the curly look. I've tried Everything!!! I used the monoi mask but the shampoo stripped and dried my hair. So last month I finally decided to give up the fight and get my hsir flat ironed. My hair was/is in horrible condition. My beautician cut some ends, but truthfully 1/2 of my hair is ruined. So I bought the monoi shampoo, mixed in coconut oil and some Wen. Now I can use it. I use 4 pumps of the monoi oil every morning. In less than a month, I have finally noticed almost zero shedding. My hair still has split ends and I'm refusing to chop again But... I do believe that a daily monoi regimen and a weekly monoi washing/conditioning is slowly healing my hair. I will use this product forever.

AWESOME SERUM!!!!!
Initially, I purchased the Carol's Daughter Moni shampoo and conditioner because I noticed my hair was breaking because I use a lot of hot tools. After my first use I noticed a significant improvement with the texture of my hair and there was less breakage. I decided to go back to the store to check out what other Moni products are available. I decided to buy this serum. This was one of the best product I have ever used. I use four pumps on my long curly hair before I blow dry my hair straight. And then I use it as a finishing product (two pumps) after I'm done. No greasy or heavy weights on my hair. Love it!!!! My hair feels soft and silky. Thanks Carol's Daughter.

Another amazing product from CD! This stuff is sacred!
The smell is great. My hair is not weighed down and in fact it feels bouncier, thicker, and fuller. I was using doo gro thickening and stimulating oils in my hair. I did enjoy using their product but it never stopped the shedding or breakage. I have now fallen in love CD and I am sold on this. I wear it once a day and my hair really likes it. It is on the pricey end, but become a member and buy the set that best fits your hair needs. I am going to re-order soon so I won't run out. CD is really the best hair product I have ever tried. My hair was shedding and now it is not. If my hair could talk I KNOW IT WOULD TELL ME HOW MUCH IT APPRECIATES CD! Try it and you will love it.

Happy with customer
I was introduced to the product while visiting my daughters in Atlanta, Ga. I have been a fan of the body products, but had never tried the hair products. The sales person and I began talking about hair (my hair) and how it was thinning on the edges. She said to me "try this and I promise you will see the difference". This was approximately four months ago and I must say she was absolutely right. I now order the products alone with my other favorites. I am a Carol's Daughter fan forever. The girls don't even bother asking what I want for my birthday or holidays, they already know "Carol's Daughter".

LOVE,LOVE, LOVE!!!
I never want to be without this stuff and I mean never, ever! I was a faithful argan oil user and my hair was ok with it. However, Monoi Oil has changed the game for me in a major way. I was having issues with single strand knots and split ends, as well as breakage in my crown. I have been using this oil for 3 weeks now and I can already see a difference. My single strand knots are drastically decreasing along with the split ends. And the breakage has come to a complete halt! My hair looks full, healthy and shiny. It has tons of body and never feels greasy or weighed down. My last twist out still looked great 8 days later thanks in part to this oil. I want to try the rest of this line now, but I can't imagine it doing any more for my hair than this miracle in a bottle already has. Try it and see for yourself!

WONDERFUL!!
I normally do not write reviews but I had to take a minute to let you know this serum is amazing!! I have 3A curl that is fine with some frizz and not a lot of it. I'm 57 years old and I've never really liked my curly hair. For most of my adult life I have straightened it, either chemically or blow drying it straight. I just recently started trying to embrace my curls and have been on the hunt for something that would lessen the frizz and smooth out the texture. This is it! I bought it after reading the reviews and used it yesterday. My curls are smooth with no frizz. I had bought another oil that felt heavy on my hair so I was scared to try this. This serum is so light and does not weigh down my hair. I'm also experiencing some breakage, probably due to menopause, so I'm looking forward to the hair strengthening aspect of this serum. This is definitely a keeper!!

Strongest hair I've ever had!
My hair loves loves loves carols daughter! I take hairfinity and have been using carols daughter all for the past year and my hair before all of this was damaged and brittle. My hair would only reach my shoulder when stretched. Now when I stretch my hair it is breast length. My hair used to be fine and now its healthy and full.

Immediate results
I have dreds and live part time in the desert so I am constantly battling dryness and breakage. In the winter it is so bad I usually have to put olive oil in my hair 3-4 times a day just to keep it from getting crunchy. I tried this product and immediately noticed a difference! My dry and frizzy ends smoothed out and I only have to apply this product once a day with no dryness at all! Love it!

Straightening serum
When I first bought this, I thought it was tiny... (and I have a LOT of hair). But I bought it because I read some reviewers saying that they've used it as a heat serum and liked the outcome. and I have tried everything. Even the Macademia line they have here at CD (not that didnt work but it didnt serve the purpose I wanted). Normally, when I straighten my hair, a LOT of hair falls out.. I mean, my toilet floor and sink would be covered with hair. When I first used the monoi oil, Im not going to lie and say no hair fell out... but it was a drastic difference! I had very little hair falling out and this could be due to the excess heat I use on my hair. I was even more so surprised when my hair lasted a long while needing little to no retouch. I loved that. And my hair felt so soft and touchable. There is one thing that i will make me buy CD Monoi oil again and that is its AMAZING smell! O my Gosh! This stuff smells amazing. And it makes my hair feel sooooo good! Definitely buying again! Worth the price!

Amazing
Great product. I wanted to try the oil. I recieve a free sample from Macys. I notice the difference the very first time I used it. I have been natural for about 5 years. My hair just breaks and sheds alot. Notice less breakage first time I used it. Smell real good. A little too pricey.

Can't use often
This product smells wonderful, but it is much too oily. I know it's (OIL) but I expected it to be lighter on my hair. I'm going to try the anti-breakage spray - on sale and not shipping - and see how that feels on my hair.

Monoi to the Rescue!
So I recently relaxed my hair after 5 years of being natural (and hating the experience). I got an adorable short pixie cut, which I love. But about a month into my relaxed hair journey, my hair began shedding and a LOT. I would comb it and literally cry out because I was losing so much hair. It was very frustrating! I was using a popular protein treatment line, and discovered my hair actually HATES protein, is highly porous AND protein sensitive (the NERVE!) So I went crying and grumbling to my hair dresser and she gave me a castor oil hot oil treatment (straight from Jamaica) and deep conditioning and told me to moisturize regularly to reverse the damage of the protein over-processing. I promise, I grabbed my Monoi oil and started using it, and my hair has not shed a single strand since. I am NOT even kidding you -- the shedding is gone. The dryness and sensitive scalp resulting from the protein sensitivity were reversed. My hair feels and looks moisturized, is retaining moisture, and is hardly shedding. Can't wait to get some more of this stuff. So awesome, thank y'all!

no more frizz or dry hair
I have been using the hair balm and the lisa's hair elixir for about 3 years and I love it. I just received my new order of Hair balm and I also received a sample of monoi oil. I must say I love it already. My hair is natural and has been for about 20 years. I have always had problems dry hair and frizz. After using the hair balm my hair was no longer dry. But today after I received the monoi oil, I used it same day. I went outside in this humid weather and I just knew when I came in my hair would be frizzed all over. Was I totally surprised when I looked in the mirror, no frizz. I will be ordering this as soon as possible, No frizz, so thankful to Carols daughter.

Amazing Monoi Products
When I first heard about the Monoi line of products, I was very skeptical. I did not believe the claims that were made on any of the products. So... I decided I was going to try the Monoi shampoo, conditioner, mask, coconut water spray, the repairing oil, and sealer, I bought all of the products along with my usual (reg hair milk, vanilla leave in conditioner etc). Well, I was so amazed at how well my hair responded to the monoi products!!!! After the FIRST application of all the products I saw No breakage, no shedding, just beautiful, beautiful natural hair!!!! Lisa Price is a genius!!!! I will use these products until they no longer exist on the planet. Bravo Carol's Daughter! Allison L.

Miracle in a Bottle!
I have relaxed 4b/c hair. I have been using this product for about four months now. This is the best hair serum that I've ever used! I've gone through a few of them, Argan Oil, Chi Silk n fusion to name a couple. This was worth every penny! It's a multipurpose product for me. I use it after washing my hair, to blow dry my hair, before flat ironing my hair, and as a sealant when I moisturize my hair. I still have a little bit over half a bottle left after four months of using it...a little definitely goes a long way. My only complaint, is that the bottle the oil is in is glass. With me being in the military, it's not travel friendly. It's still a good product so I won't mark it down just for that.

The Best Braid Out Ever!!!
Just got the Monoi Oil Serum. I have long thick hair that I either flat Iron or Braid Out. Loved It !!!! I used the Hair Milk Co-Wash and Original Hair Milk conditioner. Then I applied the Hair Milk Pudding along with the Monoi Oil Serum to my hair and braided it up as usual. I let my hair air dry(if I am working I use a hooded dryer to speed up the time) since it takes a couple of days to completely dry. But when I took out the braids, OH My!!! I never thought in a Million years MY hair could look so good!!! Yes it is pricey. But like most of CD products you don't need much. I am guesstimating I might have to buy it 4 times a year which breaks down to $9.00 a month for natural, long and in excellent shape (no split ends, no breakage) just healthy hair..........it's totally worth it!!!

Magic in a bottle
Being natural I find myself on a long exciting journey trying to find the right product for my hair and trust it isn't easy. I love the Monoi Oil, I really feel like my hair is getting the nourishment that it needs in becoming stronger and healthier. The results are amazing when my hair is straight or in its natural state. I also notice less shedding and breakage in my hair. Thanks CD = )

Love it!
Lately we've been having issues with my daughter's hair shedding whenever I flat-iron it. Tonight I used the Monoi shampoo and conditioner, then the hair mask w/a plastic cap and sat her under the dryer for twenty minutes. We then used the serum. When I say there were MAYBE three hairs on the counter - when normally there is almost a handful - I am not lying! It's nice and light, doesn't weigh the hair down at all! Definitely part of our regime from now on. If you're on the fence, get off, and try this!

I wished I had gotten it sooner
I came out of wearing a weave. A weave I've worn for far to many years. Being older, when it gets hot, you still want to think your hair is in good shape to wear a ponytail or bun. To my surprise it was in bad condition ( medication, stress, age). I was losing hair like I was an early stage critically ill person. I got the serum and split ends product and in 3 weeks my hair has improved and is not breaking at all! My family has complimented me and I thank you. I seriously doubt I would have any hair if it wasnt for Carol's Daughter!

Works for me!
I could tell difference in my hair after I used it for the first time. My hair does feel stronger after the Monoi oil is applied. I have experienced less shedding and breakage as well. I am transitioning, and was not interested in doing the big chop. I still need to use a hairdress, like Maguerite's Magic for additional conditioning. Very happy with this product!

The Real Deal!
I just tried the Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum and the results are awesome! I used it as a leave-in conditioner on my natural hair and it exceeded my expectations. After blow-drying, I noticed that there was hardly any hair in my brush...Yeah! I then used the flat iron and immediately noticed the amazing shine and bounce, not to mention the velvety smooth texture of my hair. It didn't take serum which is great for people like me with fine to medium hair. This product is the best I've tried since transitioning. It is a bit pricey, but I can't deny the results. I will be using this again. Thanks CD!

Review of Monoi Oil
I have relaxed hair and come from African American, Native American, and Caucasian decent. I recently used the Monoi oil Sacred Strengthening serum on my relaxed hair, I washed and conditioned my hair with the Monoi Oil shampoo and conditioner. I was disappointed by the performance of the Monoi Oil Sacred strengthening serum. I haven't noticed a difference in my relaxed hair with the Monoi Oil shampoo/conditioner or the Monoi Sacred Strengthening Serum. I figured if I spend thirty dollars on something it would have been worth the money. I'm convinced that these products are not for relaxed hair even though there is an entire collection for relaxed hair. These products may work only on natural or transitioning hair. I have a very good relaxer that I received from the salon, the moisturizers and shampoo and conditioner I purchased from my local supply store works wonderful on my hair. These products from the beauty supply helped with the shedding,breakage, and gave my hair awesome shine.

Customer Service
I read the great reviews about the Monoi Oil. Had to make the trip along with my granddaughter to Carolyn's Daughter Harlem location to purchase it. I also read the poor reviews regarding the customer service. I experienced such wonderful customer service. As soon as my granddaughter and I entered we we're greeted so warmly. I just went to purchase the Monoi Oil. The sales assistant was so nice, I purchased a gift set for my daughter for Mother's Day and a gift set for myself too.

good oil
One of my favorite things from CD. I use it to seal my ends for my wash n' goes. I let my hair dry about 85to 90% then gently scrunch the Monoi oil into my ends and put a light coat over all of my hair. It's light so it doesn't weigh my hair down, just leaves it nice and shinny. Won't ever be without it!

Good Product
The more active a lady's life, the more she needs good hair care. Running from the gym, to work, to school, with kids and in ever changing weather, my hair often needs a little oomph. This is a great product that has helped my hair retain moisture and bounce. Good texture, nice soft scent and works very well! I plan to purchase again.

This Stuff Really Works.
Great product and it does what Lisa says it will. I use it on wet hair after I wash it with sulfate free product. It makes my hair look great. My issue is the bottle is too small and the pricey is very high. I have to use it sparingly because it is so little an amount and so pricey. This stuff is great, but come on...if this was a man's product it would cost half as much. Men get everything handed to them......but I love this oil. I would give it 10 stars if the price would come down.

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I have refrained from relaxing my hair for over a year. I have soft hair and would only get a touch up twice a year. Recently I started experiencing hair breakage especially when washing my hair or after styling. A friend suggested that I try the Monoi collection from Carol's Daughter. The results were nothing less then AMAZING... I took these products to my beautician to use on my hair, and she couldn't believe the results. Not only was my hair softer, the shine was out of this world.. In time my beautician also noticed hair growth where the breakage had occurred. These products are a little expensive, however, I brought the entire collection. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this collection...

Amazing!!!!!
I'm new to CD products and all I have to say is.... WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG. This monoi oil is amazing. I have used the whole bottle and my hair feels great. The best way I can describe is it feels so light and natural. I have thick ,colored, and permed hair. I don't get into the hair type thing. My hair feels like its never been permed. My hair swings and it doesn't feel processed at all. I have used other products before and even after washing my hair felt stiff and processed.This is best stuff on earth. This is definitely a product I can't live without. CD has a customer for life!!!! I even tired it on my daughter hair. Her is thick and curly. It gets very tangled. So I called myself experimenting and tired it on her hair and it makes it so easier to comb.THANK YOU!!!! I wish I have tired CD products when I did try to transition.I believe had I tired it I would not have permed my hair. It makes it feel so much better.Thanks again

Great Product
I recently purchased the entire line of Monoi products. I am pleasantly pleased with the results. After the first use, my shedding hair was reduced tremendously. My husband also loves the product because my hair is no longer all over the bathroom floor. I am completely sold and I no longer allow my beautician to use anything else on my hair.

LOVELY!
Absolutely my new go to serum/hair oil. So many pros! A little goes a long way which is always nice. I have mostly 4a some 4b hair that is prone to frizz and lacks shine. Since using this product not any more! I used right after co-washing on wet hair and the styling was so much easier, had much softer hair, my spirals stood out and "popped>" with out the frizz and craziness that comes with it. And my hair has such a lovely shine now! Also noticed my co-washes following the product use (have been using about a month ad a half) detangling is not an issue anymore and my hair is just soft and lovely all the time with very little shedding and beautiful ends. Cant ask for anything better! Thank you!!

Monoi Serum....FABULOUS!!!!!
I purchased this product because I was experiencing minor breakage, shedding, and frizzy curls. I used this product along with the monoi shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask...after following my regular regime ( wash, detangle, condition, & deep condition) I sectioned my hair into four parts and applied the serum...massaged it into my hair...paying attention the ends...and MY GOD...my hair is so freaky soft! I just recently dyed my hair and I have not felt my hair this soft since....who knows!!! My suggestion: BUY IT!!!!!! It may be expensive, but a little goes a long way and it is great for color treated hair,shedding, and frizzy curls!!! My hair no longer sheds like a canine and no breakage...and this was after one use. I will continue to purchase this product...for now :)

Immediate Results
I purchased the Monoi Serum and Split End Sealer 4 days ago and I immediately saw results. The serum and the split end sealer do work. My hair has fused together and is soft, shiny, smooth and manageable. I did it myself over the weekend and it looks better than if I went to the salon. My hair is about 14 inches long, I dont have a perm, and I wear a wash, set , and wrap style. I thought the investment was high but I saved because I can do it myself.

HAPPY HAPPY HAIR!!!
Simply said; This stuff is a miracle. I have tried Monoi Oil from other manufactuers, but it didn't have the same effect on my hair as this Monoi Serum. The other Monoi oils were too oily and weighted my hair down. This serum doesn't weight the hair down at all. I love the delivery system. I am African American with natural hair below my shoulder hair length, that is bleached My hair is curly/wavy and looks like I have a relaxer when it is flat ironed. With that said, the serum has immediately stopped all breakage and flat ironing my hair is no big deal. I am not a big fan of the Monoi conditioner or shampoo, but the Monoi serum definitely has turned me into a Carol's Daughter fan. Try the serum, you will not be disappointed!!

Amazing
I have long thick straight hair, its always been prone to oilyness and Ive always had problems with shedding,This is the most amazing line of products I have ever used!! I am using the shampoo, conditioner, and oil I noticed a difference the first use but after the 3rd use I noticed when I dried and used my hot iron there was no hair in my sink!! Amazing that has never ever happened before, and my hair never feels or looks oily, it smells wonderful. There are tons of products that make claims like this but I have yet to find one that comes through until now. Try it, its well worth the money....which by the way isnt much as hair care products go and you need very little of this oil it will last a very long time.

Amazing
I just ordered some CD shampoo from a shopping network where this oil came included free. I absolutely love it already after just one use. It is light, yet you can tell it is working and it smells divine. Will definitely incorporate into my daily regime.

Five STAR RESULTS. Three star price
Just started to use this product, and I saw and felt improvement the next day. I had this happen with another product that starts with an F. I support this company, but the price for this little size is not acceptable. It should be 8 oz at a minimum for black hair care, but for long thick hair this will not last a month. I am so mad......give me more product. I see my complaint is restated in many of the reviews. I hope someone is reading this, and puts more product in the bottle with out making short cuts. You have something great on your hands, and many different hair types can benefit from so don't change the formula, just add more!!!!!!

Love the smell
I really like this product. It tames the frizzies and smells awesome! My only complaint is the glass bottle. I accidentally knocked it over on the counter and it broke. Lost half of the contents. The glass bottle is pretty but maybe a plastic bottle would be more practical (and probably cheaper).

THANK YOU CD, THANK YOU!
I was at my wits end with my hair! I wear it in a short natural. I take a lot of medications that affect my hair plus I color it with a soy-based demi-permanent product. Ni began to have a lot of breakage even tho I regularly use CD products. I made an appointment with my dermatologist because I was, quite frankly, scared to death! Each time I combed my hair it came out in great proportions. I got the email about the new Monoi Sacred Strengthening Serum and decided to try -- what did I have to lose, right? I received it last week and I promise you NO MORE BREAKAGE -- INSTANTLY!!! My hair has a healthy gloss and I pair it with Lite Hair Milk for styling. Thank you, thank you CD, you saved what little hair I have. It is truly sacred, amazing, fabulous, etc. I am recommending it to everyone I know.

The product is costly but it's worth it thus far
I have tried many of CD products and have used them for a few months now, although I have had to use other products in between because of lack of funds but for the past two months have been consistently trying to use CD products consistently. I just received the Monoi oil in the mail two days ago and I tried it right away and wow instant difference. I wanted to wash my hair and try it then but I figured why not try it right now and wow I am impressed how silky my hair looks and feels-shiny and moist. The product is light. I am trying to lean toward the Monoi products due to my hair is always breaking in certain areas and when I use the Monoi products I see an instant difference even if I just use one of the products. I have been going natural for about 5 years and I feel my hair just does not grow like it should. Well it grows than breaks which is why I wanted to try to go natural after having relaxers for many years. This is one reason why I am attempting to use one product and stick to it to see if it truly makes a difference. I will wash my hair soon and can't wait to use this product again. Although I do like some of the other products, I just love this one so far.

Even Smoother with the Serum!!!
I've been using the Monoi shampoo, conditioner and hair mask for about a year and a half and I've noticed the drastic change from the first time I used it. I recently added the strengthening serum to my hair regimen and my hair remains smoother longer and I feel more comfortable blow drying my hair knowing that this product protects my hair from heat damage. Thank you Lisa for making an amazing product and allowing me to fall back in love with my natural hair again....

Just Started
I just got the whole Monoi line and I like how it feels in my hair, so far so good my only complaint is the price, a stay at home mom of two, it is hard to justify paying this kind of money for hair products, even with the membership discount...but it is on all my gift lists and when I get a special treat for my self it is something from here. Don't get me wrong, I do understand why it cost what it does, the quality is impeccable and I love that it is natural, that is soooooo important to me.

BonafideTruth Serum!!
Honestly somewhere in the name of the product Carol's Daughter Should add "truth" serum! I purchased during pre-order, used it for the first time a couple of weeks later. My relaxed tresses have been silky ever since! My hair is now smooth. This product is a must have if you wear your hair in a wrap style. My hair doesn't feel weighted or oily but ohhh the shine! My hair feels strengthened! I feel like I can sail right through these last few weeks of NJ winter with ease. No breaking on coat or sweater collars, not as much shedding period. I can't wait to try it on my pre-tween's should length natural hair!

Great for Sealing in Moisture - Relaxed Hair
Since having my hair relaxed 5 months ago, I've continued to care for it as many natural women do -- minimal cones, no sulfate cleansing, low manipulation styling and no direct heat. These methods and the entire Monoi line has helped keep my long relaxed hair well cared for and free from dryness and breakage. I also use the Macadmaia Hold and Control on my edges and the Macadamia setting foam for a beautiful, soft bouncy air dried braid out. My only problem was that after moisturizing my ends nightly, my hair hated every oil, lotion or cream I used for sealing. I went from fluffy bounce to stiff and weighed down. This Monoi Oil Serum is the first thing I've ever used that seals, doesn't ruin the light, product-free feeling in my hair and has no cones! When I read the product description I couldn't order it fast enough. Finally my regimen is complete. And a little goes a looong way. Definitely a holy grail product!

Love the Monoi Line
I've been using all of the other products in this line for about 7 months. Ran out last month and was using obviously a harsher shampoo. My hari returned to it's old dry shedding self. I received this after pre-ordering and after a few days my hair looks much better. Of course it will take a while to go back to where it was, but this product works after only a few days.

I love this stuff!
I too, bought this at the Pre-sale. I love the Monoi line and I was excited to try the latest product. It smells great, feels light on the hair and keeps my hair frizz free with lots of shine. I use it before roller setting, wrapping or blow drying my hair. My hair is relaxed, shoulder length and frizzes easily, especially in high humidity. I am trying to grow it longer and I hope this and the other products help me on my path to longer, stronger healthy hair.

Great, light addition to the Monoi line
I purchased this during the pre-sale (and it was on sale AND I got it through Ebates.com to get some money back). I love the Monoi line. Like most of the reviewers, I have the entire Monoi line (shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, hair mask and split end sealer). I love, love, love the smell of the Monoi line. The smell is there in the serum but not as heavy as in the other products in this line. The oil is light and gives my hair great shine. I didn't give it 5 stars because when I got the product in the mail, the bottle had leaked around the cap. Overall, a great, great product. I can't wait to keep using it to see how my hair responds over time.

Love in a Bottle
Let me start by saying that I have & love the entire Monoi line! This product smells amazing & it's very light, so it doesn't weigh my hair down. It also seems to bring out the natural shine & luster in my hair. I was hoping that the product provided more frizz control, but as long as it makes my hair stronger, I would purchase it again.

Great serum!!
I've used it to seal my relaxed hair while air drying. I put it on washed, towel-dried hair and it is very penetrating and light. I also use it once my hair has completely air dried. This is a super product and can be used a variety of ways. I've been using the Monoi line since the beginning and this is an addition that I now cannot do without----a must have superior product!!

Monoi, my joy!
This is a great product! I have thick, course hair - I was expecting that a few "drops" would not be enough to cover my hair, but I was wrong! Not only did it penetrate my thick strands, it gave me a beauitful shine. My hair looked healthier and stronger after just one application! This is a definite hair styling must!

smart move
I brought the product on the pre-sale because I use the entire Monoi Line(shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, and split end sealer). My relaxed hair slicked back this morning into a bun without one strand of hair out of place. The product is light and leaves a very nice sheen without the weighted down oily look.

I immediately snatched this up during the early pre-sale period. I am caucasian with naturally straight hair that tends to frizz. I was already a user of the monoi shampoo and conditioner - LOVE!!! - so when I saw this it was a no brainer for me. And let me tell you, the frizz is gone. My hair is sleek, strong and smells amazing. 2 pumps is all i need (my hair is long - about to my bra-strap). I recommend, no question.
