Monoi Repairing Shampoo by Carol's Daughter. Only strong hair can grow into longer hair so you're free to wear any style. That's why the strand-strengthening Monoi Oil - an ancient recipe made from the rejuvenating Tahitian tiare gardenia flower and coprah coconut oil - is a must-have to help repair fine, delicate, or chemically-treated hair.

For over 2,000 years, Tahitians have used monoi oil for its natural reparative properties that undo and prevent damage from the sun, sea and surf. Using ingredients that only grow in Tahiti, monoi oil is made by taking 15 freshly picked tiare gardenia flower blossoms and combining them with 15 ounces of coprah coconut oil over a 15 day sacred ritual.

When used with the Monoi Repairing Hair Mask:

  • 96% less breakage after only 1 use
  • 13X longer hair life after only 1 use


Key ingredients:

  • Monoi oil gently conditions your hair all over
  • Hibiscus extract help quickly detangle any hair type, but especially delicate, damaged hair
  • Coconut-derived cleansers are gentle enough for even the most fragile, distressed hair


Formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals or phthalates.

Simply apply to wet hair and massage into the scalp until you see a good lather. You handle the rinse and, if needed, the repeat...they'll handle the repair.

            This product cleaned thoroughly, but I thought it was too harsh and removed too many oils from my hair. After shampooing, I couldn't get to my moisturizing conditioner fast enough. I will stick to the sulfate-free shampoos offered from AG. I only used this product once and can't make a determination if it does prevent shedding and breakage.

                Comments about Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Shampoo:

                I have extremely thin hair due to past chemo and ovarian failure - it takes forever to grow and breaks easily. Growth stimulants do not work for my hair/scalp. I have what I have - it will never be thick and long.
                This is the ONLY product that has helped my hair grow longer due to it not breaking off. It feels so soft too! I have tried other brands and even other Carol's Daughter products and I am immediately reminded why I keep coming back to this one. I use it in conjunction with the conditioner and have added the strengthening spray. All are weightless and non-greasy (my hair looks dark and dirty and wet if I use greasy products or leave in oils) - but I do use the spray sparingly.
                I could not be more in love with this product and the results I've had with it.
                Also, since I've seen some people asking if this is for women of color only, I wanted to share that I am a Caucasian female in her 30s with blond hair.

                      I am in love with Carol's Daughter haircare line! Not only does it moisterize my fine, curly, very highlighted, long hair, but it smells amazing! I used to have to put straight conditioner on my hair AFTER I got out of the shower too, just so my hair wouldn't feel like straw. With this line, all I need is the repair shampoo & conditioner, & my hair feels like hair again! It's soft, I can easily run my brush through it when it's wet, it gives my hair body & life, & it smells soooo good!!! I have tried almost every high end hair line & this is by far the best! I love it!!!!

                          Sorry, I just could NOT get over the smell. It smelled SO BAD that I had to get back into the shower and rewash my hair with tea tree oil to get the smell out. I looked at the ingredients AFTER the fact, and usually the parfum is the last or next to last ingredient. It's in the top half of the list for this product. It's so bad, it gave me a headache. If you are sensitive to smell AT ALL - STAY AWAY !!!

                          • Q:

                            I would like to know how to use this shampoo. Since it does not suds up at all I can not tell if it is emulsifying through my hair. Also, how much should I be using? My hair is of a fine texture and is long (to the middle of my back).

                              Although this shampoo is sulfate-free, it will still produce a lather. For your length of hair, we suggest starting with a quarter size amount. You can always use more as needed!
