For as much as I love to share my favorite products, I really really love it when readers recommend their favorites to me. That's why I'm starting a new feature on The Pretty Intellectual, where I'll share the products (and a shout out) that I try and love as a result of your comments and advice. First up? Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing shampoo, conditioner and hair mask.
One of my longtime readers, Kristin C, chimed in on a Facebook post that I put up asking which products help with bone-dry hair. With my hair as long as it's been in at least a decade, it's super dry all the time and looks a little lackluster. Kristin told me she purchased the Monoi Repairing 3-piece starter kit at Ulta, and that she promptly fell in love with them. I took her advice, headed to Ulta to pick up my own sample pack, and promptly fell right in love myself.
The first time out, I washed my hair and applied the repairing mask. I thought I needed to jump-start the repairing process with the ultra intensive treatment. Afterward, I started using the shampoo with the everyday conditioner. Once a week, I'll use the mask. I'm so happy with the results!
What's so great?
- After one use, my hair felt smoother, silkier and more voluminous
- The low-toxic ingredients
- The scent! Heaven help me, I want that fresh, light coconutty scent everywhere all the time (Note, if you don't like tropical scents, this might not be for you)
