      I have very long high-lightened blonde hair that is fine...but I have a lot of it. I have been trying some new sulfate-free shampoos/conditioners/hydrating products. The Monoi kit was enough to sample the products. Unfortunately, I couldn't use the products more than twice because of the OVERPOWERING smell. This product is loaded up with stinky fake gardenia perfume. Neither I, my husband, nor my work colleagues could stand the smell. I prefer to smell clean and fresh, not like Glade Gardenia Bathroom Freshener.

        Unfortunately the strong fragrance hindered me from even opening the samples sizes to use! I just could not. When I opened the box the fragrance hit me and I immediately became queasy. I wish the smell was not so strong, I was looking forward trying it. I exchanged it for the Marula line and it was good exchange.

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

          I am 56, hispanic, have professionally dyed dark, shoulder length, fine, wavy-to-curly hair. Some of Carol's Daughter's products are too heavy for my hair however, the Monoi line is perfect. It cleans and conditions my hair beautifully without weighing it down. I noticed results the first time I use it and my hair continues to improve with each use- more bounce, shine and strength. I've tried all Monoi products except for the Repair Split End Sealer, split ends are not an issue for me. I don't think that the Monoi hair oil is particularly special however, the shampoo, conditioner and mask are fantastic. I use the mask once every other week. I apply the mask to freshly washed and (very) damp hair, then cover my hair in a plastic cap and add heat with a blow dryer until my hair is warm. Once my hair is warm, I leave the mask on for about 10 minutes before rinsing it out. This mask has worked wonders for me, it's given me better results than some salon treatments I've had-the truth. I don't like fragrance in hair products however, Monoi is an exception. The clean and fresh gardenia scent is heavenly, unlike some hair products that can smell juvenile or smell like the labs that they were created in. Literally, strangers (male and female) have stopped me to ask what "perfume" I am wearing. As an aside, the Monoi body lotion is divine however, it's only available on a shopping network at this time-google to find. Nothing is for everyone however, I've recommended the Monoi hair products to 3 of my friends (African-American hair to natural blonds with pencil straight hair) ) and they are all hooked! I also recommend Cupuacu Blow Dry Cream also by Carol's Daughter, it's in her Cupuacu line. I use a pea size to style my hair and stop frizz, I cannot live without it. None of the products I've mentioned above leave a film on my hair, weight my hair down, or require me to wash my hair more frequently. Finally, the war with my hair is over...and we both won :-)

              AMAZING!! I have super curly, fine hair and it is easily damaged. I received a sample of this from Ulta and decided to try it. With one wash I had less split ends and my hair looked 100% better. I have since bought full sized shampoo, conditioner, split end sealer and anti-breakage spray. So far my hair is looking healthy and I am getting the growth results I want.

                If I have previously relaxed hair meaning I've had the relaxer for 3 months so my hair is curling up at the roots again, will it take out the relaxer and leave me with my curls? Can I straighten my hair after using this set?

                  A:

                  The products within Monoi Repairing 3-Piece Starter Kit are free of sodium chloride and free of sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, so this regimen is safe to use on chemically-treated hair. It will not remove the relaxer or alter your hair texture/curl pattern, other than to help eliminate frizz. Yes, you can straighten your hair after using these products.

                  Monoi products are not claimed to stimulate hair growth. When used as a system, these products help to prevent shedding as well as breakage so that the hair you have is able to grow longer and stronger.

                  For your particular needs and concerns, as well as your hair type, you may prefer the Marula Curl Therapy Collection:
                  http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod11231023

                  While Monoi Repairing products are best for distressed hair that is prone to breakage, Marula Curl Therapy products are ideal for textured, curly or wavy hair and help to hydrate and soften the hair so that it is more manageable. We hope this extra info helps! :-)

              • 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:
