Find in Store-

This lightweight miracle serum, whose strengthening power comes from Monoi Oil - a sacred Tahitian blend of Tiare Gardenia Flower and Coprah Coconut Oil. It reverses and prevents damage to even the most distressed hair caused by chemical straightening, color-treating, heat-styling and sun exposure. This silicone-free restorative serum rebuilds your hair's structure from the inside out for true repair that doesn't wash away or weigh hair down, like silicones do. It's also blended with Mirabelle Plum Seed Oil to restore softness and Kukui and Rose Hip Seed Oils to reduce frizz and boost your hair's natural shine. Take your hair to its maximum strength and length - no matter what you do to it.
  • Monoi oil strengthens hair
  • Mirabelle plum seed oil restores softness
  • Rose hip & kukui seed oils tame frizz & add shine
  • Plus, no silicones, parabens, petroleum, mineral oil or alcohol
Use 1-2 pumps on towel-dried hair and style as you normally would. If you desire more frizz control, apply another pump to your dried hair.

    Comments about Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum:

    I can't tell you how much I love love love this product. I was looking for a dry oil, my hair is asian, black and it's highlighted platinum. The Ulta lady suggested I use this oil because it not only makes you hair soft, it makes it stronger! Exactly what i needed. My hair is down to my waist so I use 6-8 pumps and put it all over my hair. At first i thought it would look greasy but within the hour my hair soaked it up and my hair was shiny and soft, without it looking greasy!!! I woke up the next morning and my hair is super silky and soft!! OMG I can't wait until 1 month or so of using this product.

      Comments about Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum:

      I purchased Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening serum about 2 months ago and it has been a very delightful addition to my trio already being used. While the Monoi Repairing sulfate-free shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask that I have been using about 6 months are all doing it's thing with breakage and growth, the serum joins the party with softness and shine! In addition to that I get complimented on how great my hair smells. I'm a happy camper all around! Thank you.

        I love this oil, its my go to product when my hair starts to feel dry/damaged from extreme hot or cold weather conditions. I like to use it in my LOC method for natural hair care and to seal my hair after washing before blow drying. It works great for finishing off freshly ironed styled hair too. Very lightweight and I get compliments on the smell, its not too powering. Great buy!

          I bought Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening serum about 1 month ago. My ends needed to be clipped each time I went to the salon. After 2 weeks, my ends were smooth and haven't needed to be clipped at all. I get so many compliments on how nice my hair looks!! Thanks Carol's Daughter!! Please keep this product & all your products forever!

          A Happy Customer!

          Astonishing Results

          Comments about Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum:

          I have used Carol's Daughter product over 7 years and have been pleased with everything until products went mainstream or discontinued. L'Oreal have managed to keep the best quality products available to textured hair buyers, like this Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum. This is a premium product that really is most effective on naturals that have very curly or kinky hair. This product bring out the best in textured hair if used consistently, over a period of time. HURRY GIRLS! I don't think this product will be available too much longer; Hit: price drop on Cre'me De La Cre'me product. The original Monoi line is truly exclusivity to Textured Kinky-Curly hair.

          I have kept my hair in braids and twists for several years. Unfortunately, this caused major breakage to my edges. I applied to monoi oil sacred strengthening serum. Within 4 weeks, my edges were completely filled in and strong once again. Don't ever discontinue this product
