I absolutely love shampoo that smells good, but, if it’s not making my hair look good, it gets my Sayonara by the next time I step inside the shower. That’s why I am loving the brand-new Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Collection, which just launched over the weekend.
The three-piece set is serious about good hair, and uses time-tested Tahitian ingredients to back it up-think non-stripping coconut to cleanse, bamboo water to rebuild broken strands and hibiscus extract to soften-but it’s the star ingredient of manoi oil that makes it one of the best-smelling hair product I’ve ever tried.
The emollient monoi, an ancient Tahitian word meaning “scented oil,” has been used for thousands of years to help condition, moisturize and protect both the hair and skin. Founder Lisa Price read about the ancient ritual using handpicked Tiare gardenia flower buds soaked in the first-press oil of Haaari coconuts for 15 days, and worked with her R&D team to come up with a product line that could replicate the tradition. The benefits and story behind it are boastful, but the scent it imparts-gardenia flowers with coconut-is divine. Pure tropical paradise in a bottle.
