Monoi oil is an extraordinary product. First of all, it combines the strength of two high-quality substances derived from nature, namely coconut oil and Tahitian gardenia flowers, with beautiful aroma and exceptional properties. According to Polynesians, monoi oil is a substance worthy of the kings, so it is also called tiare (tiara, crown).

Macerated flowers of Tahitian gardenia in coconut oil are irreplaceable in hair care. If you want to know how monoi oil will work on your hair – think about shiny, full of vitality, thick and strong hair of Polynesian women.
This scented oil works best on low porosity hair – it is made of small particles typical for saturated fatty acids. It is perfect for thick, heavy hair that lacks resilience, volume and is difficult to style.
Monoi Oil – what does it contain?

Monoi Oil – effects on hair?
To sum up: Tahitian gardenia oil contains a number of vitamins, minerals and saturated fatty acids. Such ingredients are necessary for healthy hair growth. Vitamins help to regenerate cells and nourish hair bulbs and scalp. Minerals play a direct role in the formation of keratin and other proteins, inhibit hair loss, strengthen the sulfidic bonds within the strands.
