The Monoi Repairing Conditioner has bamboo water, which is full of protein and natural silicon for strength and panthenol, or pro-vitamin B5, which is a water-soluble humectant that increases water in hair and improves elasticity. This conditioner is going penetrate, repair damage and protect your hair, and over time, will help reduce breakage by 92%, which means more length retention.
The Monoi Repairing Anti-Breakage Spray is a leave-in treatment that can be used on damp hair. It has monoi oil for conditioning, coconut water to prevent breakage, and hydrolyzed wheat protein, which penetrates the cortex and increases the hairs ability to absorb and retain moisture.
The Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum is a lightweight, silicone-free oil that helps repair and prevent damage caused by heat-styling and chemical services. The formula rebuilds hair with Mirabelle Plum Seed Oil, a fatty acid enriched with tocopherols, or vitamin E, and it has Kukui oil, a natural healing oil loaded with antioxidants, and Rose Hip Seed Oil, mostly made up of linoleic acid, a fatty acid that works to repair cuticle damage, which ultimately will reduce frizz and add natural shine. Regular use of this serum can increase the strength of your hair by 92%. It can be applied to damp hair prior to styling whether you plan to use heat or not.
Total style time was about one hour and 30 minutes.
Keep and care:
To preserve the curls overnight, you can simply gather all the hair to the crown and secure it in a loose bantu-knot bun, or take smaller sections and pin curl them and cover with a satin bonnet.
