Product Review: Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Mask

Hello Chíc-istas!! As you know, I recently took out my two month protective style and because my hair was out of its normal routine for almost two months, I knew I had to give it special amounts of TLC. I have been hearing great things about Carol's a Daughter Invincible Hair Set and the promises to drastically reduce shedding and breakage after one use. I thought, there was no better time to test out their claim than after taking out my twist since I typically experience lots of shedding after removing a two month protective style. So I decided to try CD's Monoi Repairing Mask, keep on reading to see if this product lives up to the hype...
What the company says:
This deeply repairing treatment nourishes your hair from the root to ends to undo unwanted damage and prevent it in the future.
Strengthening your hair is the only way to lengthen it so you can do whatever you want with it. To really fortify fine, fragile or chemically treated hair requires major nourishment found in the Monoi Repairing Hair Mask. Added to the rejuvenating Monoi Oil – a repairing Tahitian blend of the Tiare Gardenia Flower and Coprah Coconut Oil, Bamboo Water, and protective Hydrolyzed Silk. The Monoi Oil gently conditions your hair, Bamboo Water, the strongest plant on our planet, helps reinforce your hair's structure and the Hydrolyzed Silk helps fortify your hair against future damage.

I was so excited to see if these claims were true so I started by pre-pooing my hair with Shea Butter, Shea Moistures Restorative Conditioner, and Castor oil to detangle and soften my hair. After pre-pooing for almost an hour, I washed my hair with a shampoo that I always use, Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo. After shampooing my hair, I applied CD's Monoi Repairing Mask and was instantly impressed by the smell! It smells so therapeutic!! The product went on smooth and had a great amount of slip making the detangling process a lot easier. I followed the directions, coating the product on sections of my hair, paying special attention to the ends. I placed a plastic shower cap on my head and left the conditioner in for about 15 minutes

During the detangling process and application, this is all the hair that shed...

I am truly amazed!! This is incredible! This product does what it promises!! My hair was softer, it felt completely moisturized, and the lack of shedding was out of this world!! After washing the conditioner out, I was able to detangle and style my hair with even less shedding. Wow, I think I found my staple deep conditioner!!!

Here is a picture of my hair after Styling...

My Grade: A

Pros: This product does what it says!!  My hair feels repaired and renewed! I'm almost amazed by how well it works!! The smell is great, it is very therapeutic and not at all as overpowering as other products with the strong Monoi Fragrance. I really love this stuff! 

Cons: This product is expensive. It's about $32.00 for 7 ounces of product. Luckily for me, I was gifted with this so I didn't have to shell out 30 dollars for conditioner but I love it so much I'm sitting her trying to budget my finances to get it again... Ya'll know how cheap I can be! Lol! Even though it is expensive, I get why the price tag is a hefty one. There are some amazing products in here and because it does what it says, I think, the price is worth it! Did I just write that!!! Yes I did! Wow, I never thought I would justify spending that amount of money on one product but this stuff is the BUSINESS!!!! 

Well, let me know what you think. Have you ever tried this product before? Do you think the money spent is worth? 

Sound off Below and as always, 
Hugs and Love,
