A lot of natural hair-care companies have been including Monoi Oil in their product lines in order to protect and enhance the beauty of your natural tresses.
But, what exactly is Monoi Oil?
Monoi Oil is free of any sulfates, parabens, silicones and phthalates. It is a combination of Pure Coconut Oil and Tiare Flowers (Tahitian Gardenias) that is pressed from the “natural falling of coconuts from their palm tree,” then the Tiare flowers are soaked in the coconut oil for a month for optimum benefits.
How it benefits the hair
Monoi oil will help heal past damage and also help to prevent new damage from mechanical, chemical or the elements from happening. Like coconut oil, Monoi can help stop protein loss in hair which has been shown to help stop breakage. This will help the hair grow longer, stronger and become healthier. It also contains coconut oil and because of this, Monoi oil helps to significantly reduce frizz.
Tahitian Monoi oil penetrates the hair shaft, helping the cuticles lay flat and stay smooth. Monoi oil helps add brilliance and shine to the hair. It has a high concentration of vitamin E which helps hair’s elasticity plus strength and contains anti-oxidants which can help prevent free radical damage.
