Most Helpful Positive Review *double hair flip*
so i had the pleasure of trying out the monoi intense repair inner strength system which i received in a voxbox and i HIGHLY recommend. i have naturally curly hair that i tend to straighten quite often and as you might assume it takes quite the toll on my hair. the monoi products target extremely damaged and brittle hair and i definitely saw a difference after the first use. the system consists of a shampoo, a rinse out treatment, and a conditioner. in my opinion the products smelled a bit like sunscreen but in a good wayreminded me of the beach! the shampoo was sulfate free which i love and it left my hair feeling clean but not stripped. the rinse out treatment and conditioner replenished my hair and really seemed to define my curl pattern. now my problem with some shampoos and conditioners is that when it comes time for my blowout my hair feels stripped, weak and tends to break off. but i didnt have that problem after using these products; my hair didnt dry out, my brush was able to glide through gracefully, and i didnt feel any breakage. my hair was silky smooth and smelled amazing which is quite the shock considering that hair products with weaker scents leave my hair smelling burnt after a blowout! when it comes down to it, the products are a little pricey but for the quality definitely worth the splurge. you really do get what you pay for and i encourage you guys to give a try for yourself.

I received this system from #influenster. The directions from the product website says to apply a mask after washing for best results. I did not receive the mask as a part of this system. I received the sulfate-free shampoo, a conditioner, then a second conditioner that I thought was a leave-in, but turns out it is an additional rinse out conditioner.
Lets start with the shampoo. I appreciate sulfate-Free shampoo for my 3C hair, but I have never used a sulfate-free shampoo that left my hair feeling completely stripped, Im talking squeaky clean stripped as if I washed my hair with dishwashing liquid. The suds did feel good while I was washing, though.
Next, the first conditioner. I left it in a little longer than the instructions said because I was concerned about my hair drying out. It deranged well, so there was a fair amount of slip to it, but when I rinsed it out, my hair did not feel moisturized or soft. It kind of felt like it was coated with very fine wax. Other than that, it rinsed out well.
The rinse out treatment or second conditioner. Its a bit thinner than the the first, but still has a bit of slip. Again I kept it in my hair a couple minutes longer, hoping this would be a moisturizer. No, its not. My hair did not feel soft at all.
I gave it a fair trial. I used the system for a month before I wrote this review. I wash my hair once or twice a week. This system promises to strengthen your hair, not soften or moisturize it. Do I feel like its stronger? Meh, it doesnt feel weaker, which is strange because it feels dry. I would have liked to see what the hair mask in this system was like or been given a leave-in conditioner to try. Would I buy this system? Probably not, but I dont think its a bad product, just not meant for my hair. I was disappointed because Carols Daughter was originally designed for ethnic curly hair like mine. The first photo is my hair soaking wet before I used the system, and the second is after my last wash. Not much difference in definition. In fact, I think my hair looks wilder now.

I received the Monoi shampoo, and am very excited that I get to use it. The packaging is gorgeous. The set has a great smell but not overpowering like most shampoos and conditioners which is great cause you can tell theyre focused on the results of the product and not the scent. Overall I think the shampoo and conditioner works wonders and my hair feels soft!

I really enjoyed this product, i used it for about 3 weeks and i definitely noticed less breakage in my hair and that was always a problem with my hair because i have naturally curly hair so finding products that work for me is hard sometimes. But i would 100% buy this product! Oh and it smells sooooooo good
love this product
kaitlyns3dd1 from undisclosed
So I have really curly, long hair and i loved this product!! It didnt make my hair feel oily at all. The only issue is the conditioner is hard to get out of the container cause it had a little spout. So it takes some oomph to get it out. I got this as a review product but would definitely purchase it myself!

This product added hydration to my hair and its a good price for a hair treatment. The smell was a little strange and I feel like you need to use to with the shampoo and conditioner for better results

This product helped my curls come back to life. It is a lot more effective compared to others strengthening my hair a lot. It lives up to my expectations and to what its purpose is. It has a thick consistency and my hair loves it. Im looking forward to trying more products similar to this.

In comparison with other hair treatments, I think this one is on par. I didnt notice any difference in my hair afterward, but I still enjoyed using it and it has a very nice smell. I still plan to continue using it though and pay attention to results.
great Stuff !!

I received this in my vox box and I highly recommend Ive bought it twice since getting it in the box and I love it! it smells great it makes my hair really silky and soft and it also helps define my curls and normally are just everywhere!!
no noticeable difference
sammyb from undisclosed
I love a great hair mask but I just didnt find this one to be as moisturizing as others I have used. I have naturally curly hair that soaks up product well. I color and use heat on my hair so a repairing product was very appealing to me. That said I dont think this particular treatment made a noticeable difference to my hair.

The smell is not wonderful. While it did help with frizz, it left my hair even more dry and brittle than before, which is what it was supposed to correct. Also, I lost a lot of hair in the shower and when brushing after using it.
heatherk85 from undisclosed
This product is amazing. I love that is is dispensed from a hole in the cap. I wish the hole was a bit bigger. This left my hair smelling great and felt soft. I received full sizes products for free to accomplish my review.

Loved it because it smells so good and really left my hair super soft. Would totally recommend to family and friends, such a good product! Scent was everything
I adored these products!
megggggie from undisclosed
After using these products, my hair was left feeling soft and smelling lovely! They have a nice vanilla-like scent and the products are unique compared to any product I have used before. My only complaint is that the packaging is slightly inconvenient at times, but it is worth it for the product!
briannam69 from undisclosed
I absolutely loved the product! It was my favorite by far, and when used my hair looks great and healthy as if I just recently got a hair cut. Its probably the best product Ive used on my hair when its curly and the curls come out phenomenal!
yailinr from undisclosed
I loved this! It really works and leaves your hair feeling super smooth. I received this complimentary, and I would definitely purchase again. It did what it was supposed to do, I was definitely impressed!
jasminep3fc1 from undisclosed
I like this product because I could feel the transformation in my hair. It made my curls pop every time I applied it. I only gave it four stars because of the smell, but I would def recommend to a friend if they have damaged hair. I would also purchase in the future if I feel like my hair is breaking off too much.
BEST PRODUCT EVER!

Best product ever! Left by curls so shiny and very hydrated! I had a great hair week with very little frizz!
I love my curls again!
stagekatz from undisclosed
I've been very critical of my curls over the years, usually electing to straighten them and ignore them rather than actually embrace them. This product did WONDERS for my curl confidence. After literally one use they were shiny, soft, even, and defined. I was shocked, honestly.
The smell? Pleasant and warm, I'm a big fan.
The packaging? I'd prefer a squeeze bottle/spout, it can be a little tricky getting the product out and lids on and off.
The 3 part system - shampoo, conditioner, and repair treatment, all works well *together*. I would not at all recommend the shampoo on its own - it strips my hair of EVERYTHING, leaving it feeling impossibly matted and harsh before applying the other two products. I would imagine in conjunction with this, the other two products would leave unstripped hair oily and weighed down. I haven't tried any product separately yet because they work so well together, so this is all an assumption based on how it seems to work as a set!
Love but adds time to hair care routine
taylynng from undisclosed
I really liked this product and line of products. My hair has felt so soft and looked super shiny since starting to use these. i can also use this on the top of my hair without it getting greasy. The ONLY con is that it adds time to my hair care routine and I have to plan more time for this. would recommend for someone who is willing to put in a little extra time for their hair!
easy to brush!
melaniev from undisclosed
This stuff is like conditioner on steroids. It says to leave in for a minimum of 1 minute so if I have time I get out of the shower and leave it on and brush my teeth. And do my face routine and then get back in a rinse off. This stuff has TRANSFORMED MY HAIR. I dont have color in my hair so take that in mind but I will be buying again for sure!

At first I didnt like how the second day that I used it, it made my hair be thick. But after several days of using it, I noticed a change in my hair. My hair was repaired and less damaged as before I used this product. Also I noticed that my hair grew a bit longer. Definitely will be trying this out next time and will definitely buy it. I recommend this to anyone who has damaged hair.
amazing product and fantastic smell!!!
chastitynoelmiller from undisclosed
This product was amazing!!! The smell is fantastic!! Im in love! First, thing I noticed was how soft my hair was after the first use. The second thing I noticed was that after two days the hair loss was much less. The bottle was very cool the top@just twists so you dont have to take it on and off so you can use it with one hand. My only issue was wanting to take more showers so I could smell@it over and over!! Love this product!!

When I received this I was all kinds of excited but as I used the system I noticed a few things. First, the smell. I took the wrapping off and that's the first thing that I do, is find out what it smells like. The gardenia is all I could smell. I'm not a big fan of gardenia but I gave it a try. I took to the shower and well the steam just took it over the edge. I continued because I wanted to give it all I had. The system just didn't work for my hair. I don't know what it was or if I was doing it wrong. I work in a Warehouse so I have to wash my hair every single day due to sweat. It wasn't making my hair progress with results like I thought it would. I would stand in front of the fan at work and that's all people would smell. So I discontinued use. Well I noticed my hair was falling out more and more. I'm not sure if it was due to the shampoo conditioner and the rinse but it's definitely not something I was expecting. I still have a decent amount left, I usually give something a second try but with all of the clumps of hair I lost I think I am just gonna pass on this. I am truly thankful for being selected it just didn't work for me.
