Carol's Daughter Monoi Hair Care Review

This Might Be the Best-Smelling Shampoo You'll Find in 2011

If you don't want to spend any money right now, then stay away from Carol's Daughter Monoi hair care ($18–$29). Because here's the thing: after you smell the shampoo, conditioner, or mask, you will pretty much be powerless against its sway. It smells that good, like a perfect tropical blend of suntan lotion and a salty breeze. (This makes sense, considering its star ingredient is Tahitian monoi oil, a blend of coconut oil and tiare flower.)

The products promise to dramatically reduce breakage, but I haven't been using the collection long enough to tell whether that's the case. However, the formulas are incredibly moisturizing — seriously, you could easily confuse the rich shampoo for conditioner — and they've left my hair smooth and shiny without weighing it down. Still, considering how amazing this stuff smells, it could turn my hair green with purple polka dots and I'd still rush out to buy another bottle. Obsessed.

Evie, Burkina, I have a lot of fine hair. No problems so far. You might want to check Sephora to see if they have a trial size. I know Beauty Insiders were getting the same small trial size I have, so they might be sold near the checkout (know how they do that sometimes?). Worth a look. Mzcks, yes, this is definitely appropriate for natural hair — CD mentions it. I initially wondered if it would be best only for thick/coarse/curly hair, since CD has so many treatments for that hair texture, so I was surprised that it worked well for me. Oh, and it smells good. (In case I didn't mention that.)

I was wondering that too. Are your strands fine or thick/coarse? I am so tempted to buy!

@Annie: I have a question about your hair texture. You say this doesn't weigh your hair down, but do you have fine hair, or thick? I love the sound of this, but my hair is so fine I'm worried it will be too heavy.

I know I sound like some crazy Carol's Daughter acolyte, but the scent really is fantastic. I washed/conditioned last night, and my beau came over. Hugged me hello, then said, "Your hair smells really good." COINCIDENCE?
