      Comments about Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing 3-Piece Starter Kit:

      These products come as close to meeting their own hype as any i've ever found. It has actually reduced the breakage I see by somewhere between 50% and 75%. Not the 98% that's advertised, but it genuinely makes a substantial difference. It also leaves my hair feeling softer and fuller. And personally, i LOVE the smell, but I know that's an individual taste.

      If you have African American 4B type hair, my recommendation is that you not try this product. After using it, my hair was striped to the point of feeling like a Brillo pad after my wash. I was horrified about how my hair tangled up after using it. I am Extremely disappointed that the product gave me this result. My hair has been shedding a lot since I used the shampoo, conditioner and mask. I spent over two hours trying to detangle my hair. No product has ever done this to my hair. My usual go to hair products is Ashley Lauren. I should have stuck to what was working. I have very kinky, curly hair. I think these products work best for European type hair. I am loosing so much hair now! I wish I had never tried it on my hair type.

          Comments about Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing 3-Piece Starter Kit:

          I am very impressed with this kit. I usually use high-end products and am a frequent hair-mask user, so I wasn't sure if I would really see any improvements from this set over my usual care routine. My hair felt a little dried out after shampooing & conditioning so I was pretty skeptical. I left the mask in for about 6 minutes (I'm sure that longer would be even better). After drying my hair, it feels and look amazing. I think the mask is the real star of this set! I'm not sure that I will buy the full size of all three products, but the mask for sure!! I'm hoping that this will help me achieve more hair length. My hair is currently bra-strap length and I've never been able to grow it any longer than that. I will continue using this product regardless, it makes my hair look very healthy!

              This product is exactly as advertised. With the first use I noticed a significant difference in the hair left in the comb after washing and conditioning. Mt hair was shiny, manageable, and smelled great (coconut).

                Comments about Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing 3-Piece Starter Kit:

                I've used the Monoi conditioner last winter to co-wash my 3C curls with and I loved it. After this summer I decided to give the line a try and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. After I used the shampoo I was able to detangle, which never happens by the way. It took me about 5 minutes to detangle my curls, which is normally a 15-20 min process with my bra length hair. From their I followed up with the conditioner for a few minutes (you can skip this step, personal preference) and from there I used the repairing hair mask conditioned with a plastic cap under my hooded dryer for about 15 mins. My hair is not damaged, I could just tell that it was a bit limp from the southern heat from the summer. My hair felt like butter afterwards, this product is amazing! Plus the bonus gift of a 4 oz of sample of the Marula Softening Hair Mask (haven't tried yet) was a nice gift! I love making purchases with Ulta.

                  If you have 4B/4C high porosity hair, my recommendation is that you not try this product. After using a peas size amount of the shampoo, my hair was striped to the point of feeling like hard wire after my wash. I was horrified about how my hair felt and very disappointed that the product gave me this result. I used the entire bottle of conditioner and the mask in hopes of getting back some of my softness and hydration, but I was disappointed again. My hair is a hot mess now. The conditioner and the mask had very little slip, so de-tangling my hair was also a difficult task. My hair is hard, crunchy and difficult to comb. I spent over an hour working with a leave-in conditioner to get some manageability back so I could get my fingers through my hair. No product has ever done this to my hair. I would also like to say that my hair was not damaged in any way before trying this product. My usual go to products are SheaMoisture, so I guess I should have stuck to what was working. I do not think this is a bad product, it is just not for my hair type. I have very kinky, coily, cottony hair and I have been natural for 18 months. My hair is course but was soft to the touch with good hydration. I have never posted a review for a product, but I did not want anyone with my hair type to have this happen to them. It is going to take a lot of deep conditioning and shea-butter to get my hair back to where it was prior using this product.

                    I had high hopes for these products but for some reason the Monoi line didn't work for me and left my hair very dry and brittle.

                    Pros
                    Smells nice

                    Cons
                    Packaging (hard to differentiate which one is shampoo and which one is conditioner when you're in the shower) Also, the cap to open the bottle is strange.

                    Overpriced

                    Shampoo is harsh (Feels like your scrubbing your hair with soap and alcohol)

                    Conditioner doesn't soften or detangle (Really doesn't do much)

                    Leaves hair matted

                      I recently ordered a Monoi kit. I have mixed and matched products for several years with average results. I am caucasian, soon to be 71 years of age and color my hair. I used this product once and was thrilled. I have the body in my hair that I had in my 30's & 40's, and it has a "healthy natural shine". I didn't have to continually try to style and tweek with a curling iron. I always have to clean hair off my dressing table from drying and curling, TRUTH, Ladies, I cleaned only 6 to 8 hairs today.This product has a very soft scent and will not fight with your perfume.

                      • Q:

                        I really haven't ever used this product but after Jada expressed using this product and the results are fabulous I need direction about where to start. I used Jamacian castor oil, coconut oil, ovation products ,biotin, hairfinity. and all these products have really helped but I am looking for my hair to become longer and stronger. I am also in my early 50's which is an entire new challenge in hair management.

                          This set is a great place to start! It includes a shampoo, conditioner, and intensely nourishing mask, all clinically proven to repair and protect hair from breakage. In an independent study, these products were proven to prevent breakage by 96% and extend hair's life by 13x!

                          Another great product to round out your regimen is Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum (Item #: 2255462), a leave-in treatment that works to deeply repair, nourish, and strengthen hair against breakage:
