To really fortify fine, fragile, or chemically-treated hair requires major nourishment found in the Monoi Repairing Hair Mask.

Research results:- 96% less breakage after only 1 use- 13 times longer hair life after only 1 use- 85% better conditioning and detangling after only 1 useIndependent studies were conducted on instrumental results versus control when used with Monoi Repairing Shampoo and Hair Mask for 30 minutes.

Yes, definitely use this! I am caucasian as well with very dry, damaged, thick, color treated hair. It's done wonders for me. My hair used to just break off at the ends because of the damage. I've used this for 6 months and have noticed a HUGE difference. Longer, stronger, shiner hair for sure.

I am Caucasian and highly recommend this product to people who have a similar hair type to mine. There is a noticeable difference in the feel of my hair after using this product and the mask has thoroughly helped in strengthening my hair so I could grow it out.

It does not make my hair oily. I apply all over but I mostly focus on my ends, so there is product near my scalp but not nearly as much as my ends. Also, I have had no problems with this mask causing adverse effects on my scalp

I have thick white girl hair that is currently bleached and haven't had any problems with it weighing my hair down or making it greasy. It works nicely for dry hair. If you are concerned about it, just don't put it on your scalp. Be careful sleeping with it on if you scalp is at all sensitive. I had some burning after about 8 hours.

hmm...your hair is dry and thick? and your looking for a better way to keep you hair moist? well, i guess if i were you i would try it. whats the harm in using it? im sure there's nothing in this product that will cause major damage if any to you hair.and i would say that this product is geared more towards black people, but thats only because most black people have thick/coarse hair, but really if you do have thick hair, then maybe it will work! :) if you find that your hair gets too greasy from using this product then i would just wash it out.and if you find that you don't like this product, and still need something to keep you hair not dry, just buy some natural oils! :) get some coconut oil, olive oil, or carrot oil! something like that should help! :)

I don't think Sephora would sell it if white people couldn't use it. All of the CD products I've tried in the past have been rather greasy, but it hasn't stopped some of them from being effective. Your best bet is to ask for a sample in-store to see if it works for you.

answer 2
Judging by the directions on the sticker on the bottom of the package, I would say you can put it all over or just the ends. I put it all over my hair but focus most of the product on the ends to prevent breakage since that is the intent of the mask. It also might depend on your hair quality. Do you have a really oily scalp? Then you may not want to apply the mask from root to tip and just end up applying it to the tips.

There are directions on the package. There is a sticker on the bottom and you have to peel it to reveal the directions.

"Massage gently into your clean, wet hair, giving a little extra love to your frazzled ends. Leave the treatment mask on for 5 to 7 minutes and then rinse well. Or, for an even deeper treatment, put on a plastic cap and sit under a dryer for 10-15 minutes.

Caution: Keep out of eyes. Not intended for internal use."

I wouldn't use it everyday because it's an intense conditioner, which usually makes your hair fall out. I have thin hair and I use this once a week. If you have thick hair, it might be alright to use it every 2 or 3 times a week.

Also, I use this with a shower cap while I'm showering with hot water. The cap traps heat that opens hair follicles. This way you could use less product and your hair could benefit the most from the conditioner.

-Apply to wet hair.
-Massage gently into your hair, especially the ends.
-Leave in hair for three to five minutes and then rinse well.
-You can also use a plastic cap, and sit with hair under a dryer for five to seven minutes for a more deep penetrating treatment.
-Best results when used weekly.

answer 1
Is it safe for color treated hair? Yes. HOWEVER, know that ALL masks will wash out some color. Masked, by nature are meant to deeply penetrate the hair and deposit their lovely qualities. When you wash your hair, and you wash out the mask, you will pull out some color along with it. Rinse your hair in ice cold water and you will minimize that.
That being said, this is perfect for dry and chemically treated hair.

While I don't know if this product is safe for color treated hair, I would imagine that it's no different than any other deep conditioner with oil in it. With oil, there is always the chance that it will strip the color from your hair. A lot of people experienced this with Morrocan Oil products. In my entirely unprofessional opinion, I think this happens over time, but I would ask the person who colors your hair if they think that a product with oil or Monoi oil specifically will strip your color. Also, you might be able to find more information or ask a question on Carol's Daughter's website.

Good for over processed blonde hair?
Hi everyone. I have heard alot of good things about this brand and want to give it a try. My hair dilemna is that I'm a natural brunette, but I dye my hair CONSTANTLY usually bouncing between red head and blonde. I am currently blonde and although I been getting trims, my hair ends are shameful. Would this be good for that kind of damage? Or anything else in this line? My hair is naturally straight, but really damaged from overcoloring. Thanks!

From what I learned health wise you should only dye your hair within four shades of its natural color. It can cause some serious damage when you dye your hair to far away from its natural state. But I chemically treat my hair and it seemed to help me. I suggest you buy the small monoi repairing pack, which comes with the mask, conditioner, and shampoo. See how it works on your hair.

It makes bleached hair softer and I could actually get a comb through my hair afterward! The girls in the store who recommended it had very bleached out hair and they loved it. In time it should repair your hair asong as you are doing what you can to prevent further damage (hello heat styling!). For the money you might prefer one of the phyto combination sets ($25) or argon hair mask at a discount beauty supply.

I straighten my naturally curly hair, color it and use a flat iron so my ends are pretty trashed too. My hairdresser makes me deep condition once a week by sleeping overnight with condition in my hair. Not sure Monoi is helping more than any other conditioner but deep conditioning weekly does help.

Absolutely! The biggest issue of most products using after any type of straightening treatment is that they have too high of a pH - that comes from all the chemicals most brands put in them. Natural-based products like this can't possibly have a high pH so you're safe. Also, I think the shampoo they have with this is Sulfate-Free which is also extra gently and safe after chemical straightening.
