    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.

      4C Hair Type - Bad Experience

      Best Uses

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

        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. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

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

            I used this product for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I was very skeptical about the claim of immediate repairing and significant notice of hair breakage. I must honestly say, this product lived up to its claim. I noticed a significant difference in hair breakage with the first use during the blow drying process. And the tropical smell to my hair is AWESOME!!! I actually look forward to washing my hair now! Although it is a little pricey, it is worth the expense.

              I have been searching for the right product for my daughters hair for over a year (she is 3 years old). When I use regular conditioner, I have to use so much product to get the tangles out. With Carol's daughter, I was able to use less product and I got the wet brush through her hair with no problems!! It makes her curls look great and it smells amazing! I really recommend this for anyone with super curly hair! I am one happy mommy and I am pretty sure my back thanks me too! Even though it is a little expensive, it is worth every penny!

                I love this collection. I have fine, delicate natural ethnic hair with multiple textures (corkscrew curls and waves.) I alternate between wearing my hair totally natural and blow drying it straight, and I notice significantly less hair on the floor after blow drying when using this combination of products. I use the shampoo and conditioner primarily when I plan to use heat styling on my hair. I use the mask once a week. My hair seems fuller and healthier whether wearing it curly or straight. Combined with a good overall healthy hair regiment (nutritious diet , minimizing heat styling, and careful treatment of the hair) my hair has been growing faster than it used to.

                  This is very highly scented, especially the hair mask. I am undecided about sulfate free products, I know they are better for your hair, but I am just not sure I like them. I think similar products are available at a lower price. You'd better like gardenia if you are buying this!

                        Monoi is perfect for a transitioner! As you begin to see new natural hair growth, it needs strengthening TLC. When shampoo and hair mask are used, you'll experience 96% less breakage, 13x longer hair life - and just after one use. Also try the Monoi Sacred Strengthening Serum for everyday strengthening and shine - one pump a day keeps the breakage away!
