Rated 4.48 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Great so far!
A few months back I had my hair highlighted and for whatever reason, it really messed my hair up. I found it had broken all over the place and it started shedding more than usual. I've had the same stylist for years, know the products he uses and have had him highlight my hair many times before. As such, I have concluded my deep brunette hair will remain brunette and never be highlighted again. SO...I have been on the hunt for products that will repair my hair and help with the overshedding. I tried Aveda hair repair shampoo and conditioner, standard castor oil, and several other remedies without having much luck. When I came across this, I was skeptical. I used too much on my first try because the drops are deceptively small. It says you only need 2...I used 4 thinking I didn't have enough. Needless to say, my shoulder length hair felt weighed down and kind of sticky. The next time, I stuck with the directions and only used 2 drops. BINGO! My hair is MUCH shinier, looks healthier and dries on its own in half the time (bonus for me because I'm trying not to heat style my hair as much). I'm only giving it 4 stars because I want to see if it truly repairs my hair and not just resolve the "symptoms". This serum soaks into your hair too, unlike Argan oil which I feel just sits on top of your hair. It has a lovely light floral scent as well (much less overpowering than Argan oil). I plan on returning for the shampoo and conditioning mask to see if it helps with the overshedding as I have not noticed my hair shedding any less (though this is only my 2nd day using the serum).
Most Helpful Critical Review Love Monoi Oil HATE the glass bottle
I have been using this oil for more than six months and I absolutely love it, love the shine it gives back to my natural hair, which seemed so dull to me as i was going through the transition. I recommend Monoi Oil to everyone and even posted on Facebook how much I love it and what it does for my hair. However, I HATE that glass bottle. Slippery when your hands have oil on them or even wet. The pump comes off almost daily. I think the product could be sold for a little less it you came up with a cheaper bottle. GLASS is awful for oil!!!!! Monoi Oil 5 stars, GLASS bottle 0(zero) stars.

I had this bottle for 2 days. It slipped out of my hand and landed on my floor. The glass bottle shattered and now I have no product. Will not repurchase.
So happy to have found this item.

Wish this product came in a spray

This is a great product. Smells wonderful.
Keek from Akron ohio
I love that's its not too heavy and makes my hair so soft. The only thing is it doesn't keep my hair oiled long enough. My hair still feels a little dry but that's just might be my hair. My hair has been natural for about a 3 years now.
Trishb from Rockford, Illinois
Very good product. I put this product on after washing my hair with the Monoi shampoo and conditioner. After I blowed dry my hair and I could tell the Monoi Oil was working. My hair was not shedding.
Great product bad bottle
Melisa from Utah
Bought this and love it but when I went to grab the bottle the lid popped off and the bottle fell to my tile floor and shattered which made me lose all my product I payed for and it was a brand new bottle I only had it 2 days. So sad. Why can't you put it in a non glass bottle. Please
I love Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Serum!

No more frizzies! I applied this monoi oil after my leave in and straightened my hair with my blow dryer. No other products. Great results. Smooth, shiny hair.
Monoi oil is fantastic!
Heather James from Montclair,NJ
Phenomenal oil for hair and body, not greasy. smells great. Smells delicious!
Great for perm after-care
Dani17 from undisclosed
This product works great after I get my hair relaxed. It restores the strength and keeps my newly trimmed ends in great condition. I use it every day for 1 week after a relaxer. In between treatments I only use it about once a week before I apply heat to my hair for protection. Highly recommend before/after heat styling.
I would buy this product again and will do so.
JS from Pretty Prairie, KS
I use this product daily on my hair. It is a light oil with a great smell and helps tame the fizz.
Love- just not for blonde hair
blondie24 from Atlanta
I love this oil so much- it's silicone free and really hydrates my hair instead of just coating it like most oils/serums. My hair stopped breaking off and actually started growing. The only downside is that the oil is not clear, it's yellow, so be weary of this if you have blonde hair. Unfortunately, I can't use this anymore as it was turning my hair brassy since my hair is very porous and soaked up the oil. Getting my hair bleached is too expensive to turn around and ruin the color :( I hope one day they can make a clear oil so that I can buy again! This stuff really works!
My hair loves it
MZB ROB from Memphis, TN
This serum makes my natural hair feel hydrated and soft. The store where I normally bought it no longer carried it, so I was fortunate to find an ad for a sale. Of course, I bought 3 and am loving it. I use it as a hair oil, I use it when I twist my hair and I use it as a hot oil treatment.
Helps prevent my husband's beard from breaking off
Melarie from Kelseyville, California
My husband has a nice long beard. I noticed a bit of it was not growing very well. We started using the Monoi Sacred Strengthening Serum and his beard is looking fuller and longer. He is pleased!

Best stuff to buy worth every penny my hair is not Oily and it makes ur hair so light
Nothing compares to this oil!!!
Shells from Jamaica,NY
My hair drinks this nutrient rich oil and gives me back amazing shine. All the other oils/serums on the market may give my hair shine, but this oil does it without harmful ingredientsrewards my strands with strength. A little goes along way.
SloanD from Colorado
I'm writing this review after trying the product for two years I got sick of reading reviews where the product was reviewed after one month use. I found those not to be helpful my hair is permed and I live in a very dry state the oil is good I suggest if you use the product use the complete line the shampoo the conditioner and the hair mask you will still need to find a moisturizer and the Monoi collection does not offer one.
Great All Around!
Curlyprep from Alabama, United States
I bought this product a couple weeks ago and finally had a chance to use it. This oil has a light and pleasant fragrance while also being effective on dry or wet hair.
It's ok not great
AvaC from Kissimmee, FL
I really prefer the Lisa Eliixer over this serum because it doesn't mix easily with other products
Lake girl 59 from Wirtz, Virginia
I started using this oil about 5 years ago, I love it! It's so light and will not weight my hair down, and it smells great.
Best Oil Ever
Tamar M from Hempstead, NY
I've been using this oil for a couple of years now and it's the only one that I've found that keeps my hair shiny and not greasy to the touch. I have hand in hair syndrome and always playing with my curls. With this product I don't have to keep worrying about getting oil all over. It stays where it supposed to. IN MY HAIR.
