Created by the Tahitians, Monoi is an infused perfume-oil made from soaking the petals of Tiaré flowers in coconut oil. Since Monoi oil consists of coconut oil, it helps prevent protein loss and hair breakage. The coconut oil also helps significantly reduce frizz and nourish the hair. Fatty esters present in monoi enable it to penetrate directly to roots, boosting hair’s strength and preventing it from becoming dry and dull. Monoi oil penetrates the hair shaft, helping the cuticles lay flat and stay smooth, while adding brilliance and shine to the hair.
