What's That Ingredient? Monoi Oil

Monoi Oil for Natural Hair
The Tiara Flower from which Monoi Oil is derived

What is Monoi Oil?
 
 Monoi Oil has been known to be one of those great oils similar to coconut oil that can be used on the hair and body. This oil which is rich in methyl salicylate is from the Tahitian islands. The way this oil is created is quite different from other oils. It is an infused oil which is the result of submerging the Tiara flower into coconut oil. The result: monoi oil.
 
What does it do for our hair?
  • Softens hair
  • Helps fight against frizz
  • Strengthen hair
  • Prevents antioxidant damage
