    The Polynesians' hair is of high quality. It is thick, shiny, healthy and easy to style. The hair is a mixture of straight and curly hair which results in this foam aspect even pearled. It is traditionally long even very long ! And this of course implies to take care of it every day. This an ancestral beauty product made in each family: The MonoÏ ! It comes from the maceration of Tiare flowers in Coconut oil.
    The coconut oil is one the few oils capable of entering into the cortex of the hair. This is due to its lauric acid content. This fat substance acts outside the hair wrapping it with a protective sheath and inside filling its cracks. That way, the Monoï oil gives strength and shine and perfume your hair with an exotic fragrance with tiare flower accent. Now you just need to wear a flower - or a crown - during the day respecting a precise code: left side, the heart is taken, right side, sign of single situation, flower on the left but visible stem, you might be able to… talk !

    The Tahitians women are not the only ones to use it. Some men called raerae love it too ! Between men and women, they like to have feminine attractive features. A silky hair, manicured nails ! In the old days, in each family, the eldest son was raised like a girl. That way, he would grow up with girl manners in a man's body often imposing.
