Dare to spend 300$ for your Hair?

Would you spend the Money on Hair Products if someone told you it was Worth It


Hey there,

My name is Svetlana and I tend to be a consumer, saving money on every buy.  But did I dare to spend 300$ worth of Hair Products on myself? No I did not, but my husband had me in for surprise.

It was close to our first wedding anniversary, and I have been complaining about my hair for the past year if not more. My hair was dead and ugly, and sad.

Let me explain the state of my hair: my hair was dehydrated, colored about 5 times, I had split ends, my hair was rough and brittle, and the worst of it all, I have been having some major hair loss issues after bleaching my hair several times.

I’v tried so many different shampoos and treatments, only to see no progress in health or my hair-loss. And so, I was never more thankful to my husband for the 300$ Monat product Pack he bought for me to restore my hair – as my anniversary gift.

Remember this post is from a few years ago (updated in 2018), so my husband bought me this line even before I had anywhere to look for reviews of this product. The Monat line launched October of 2014 & thats exactly when he bought them for me and secretly signed up as a market partner. So you are lucky to have reviews to go to, my husband just had hope for me with this new line!


This is my first year review of using Monat Hair products  and I can not believe the dramatic, impossible difference I saw in my hair. I thank God that I did not chop my lengthy fine hair off that took me years and years to grow–because my hair was finally alive again! I restored my healthy hair once again, I never thought possible. I am more than just content with Monat. I am stunned!

If you are/ or were in the same place I was, you know how much it sucks to have dead hair and have almost no hope to restore beautiful hair ever again. Little did I know, that switching to a shampoo that was naturally based and a bit mor costly–would change my hair so much. My hair became soft, shiny, and there are none but 1 or 2 lose hairs at the bottom of my bath tub, after cleansing my hair with Revive shampoo and conditioner.

Hair can Give Up on You ,but you can’t Give Up on Your Hair

I say, it is about time I can finally stop loosing hair! It was definitely a process and a waiting game, I didn’t just stop losing hair from first use, but with every month using Monat shampoo I would see less and less lose hair.  Monat shampoo, conditioner and the Rejuveniqe Oil, strengthened the roots of my hair, that are now growing a couple inches every month, so now I am not as terrified to trim my hair every 3 months. This is my story, and that is why today I have become a distributor with Monat; for the products I love and believe will help many others.

Here are some cool facts on Monat products & the results they bring

First off Monat Hair products were tested on humans, not on animals because that is how safe Monat is, made up of natural oils and ingredients.

Monat Hair products are made up of 13+ rare oils collected from all around the Earth, that mimic our body’s own natural oils to maintain the youthfulness and health of our hair and skin. And this is exactly what sets us apart from all other hair care. The way that this natural formula absorbs into our hair strands as if its out natural hair oils is gold, because other products just sit on top of your hair or cleanses your hair so harshly it deprives you of your natural hair oils that keep your hair alive, leaving your hair clean but dry prone to damage! This is what I fear most now, but never knew before I started using Monat. I thought other paraben and sulfate shampoos were doing a great job cleaning my hair, but truly it was damaging my hair more and more.

The Monat Product line now contains a total of 11 systems for different hair treatments, covering all hair issues you can think of. I could never stand the fact that advertisements of any product always say it works for everyone! SO not true, but with Monat you can chose a system or even build your own chosing from so many different products, all of which targets a separate issue or several in one system. Check them out here>> If you click the shop tab, on the left hand side the products will be organised by hair needs so its easy to find what you need! Monat also has a hair quiz you can take that will guide you do the best products for you after answering a few questions.

Monat Hair Quiz

It visibly replenishes and repairs hair with instant as well as long-term age preventing benefits for both hair and skin.

Did I say skin? Yup, I said skin. The Monat product Rejuveniqe oil also is great for skin. It provides nutrients, Omega-6 fatty acids and antioxidants which help premature aging. Check out my post on 101 ways to use Rejuveniqe Oil, it has some really cool ways of using this oil for dry skin, rashes, and much more.

My husband had some sort of rash on his arm, he applied a few drops of Rejuveniqe oil, and his rash was gone in a couple days. Someone said it even takes away bags underneath the eyes if you apply it over night.

Im sure you have already seen the percentage list of promises that monat claims to bring. I will not bore you with that but tell you the ones that most stood out to me and made me have faith in Monat because I have not seen other brands promise you this. Monat products increases your hair in collagen which directly increases the follicle size of your hair. This is incredible because it means the clogged pores on your scalp are being opened up giving more space for nutrients to absorb into your hair follicles promoting health and healing and stronger roots.

Monat also decreases the DHG hormone that attributes to hair loss, and with the promis above that is why Monat works. Opens your clogged pores, reduces DHT hormone and bam you already have great result along with all the other promises of hair growth, strength, less breakage, manageability and natural shine.

This may not be the first time you see this list, but I have to post this because these results promised here are backed with clinically proven results!

Monat Advice and Real people Hair Testimonies

Monat Testimonies of Real People

I believe I owe it to all of you to share more amazing testimonies of real people and their journeys with Monat to heal or nourish their hair. You may be in a place where you don’t know what products to use or you have been using a Monat system for a while but it hasn’t been bringing you the results you are looking for, then this post is for you. I will not be including these testimonies in this post but I will include a link where you will find many testimonies. It is a Facebook group created over a year ago where real people post before and after pictures and their stories with Monat on a daily basis. I advise you to join this group for your own advantage to see what the products have been doing for people and which products could be the best for you! You also may have read negative reviews on Monat and completely shut down the idea of even trying Monat, well let me tell you this a lot of these people used the wrong products for their hair type targeting other issues not meant for their hair type or they they have been doing other harmful things to their hair while using Monat in the end accusing or blaming Monat for some sort of damage. I will exploit on this issue in the next paragraph but below is the link to the Monat Testimonial Group on Facebook you should join.

Importance of Knowing Which Monat System is best for You

I also want to make a BIG loud statement on how truly important it is to know what Monat products to use and HOW to use them! Yes most and every brand says that their products are for everyone! However that is not always true! In Monat’s case, when they say that, they don’t mean that any shampoo out of the Monat line will work for any hair type. Each of Monat’s products were clinically formulated to target several separate hair issues. Therefore you need to figure out what that system is for you instead of becoming an unhappy customer who just paid a good price for high end hair products.  For instance… if you already have a super dry scalp and dry hair but you are seeking hair growth because your hair is thinning you need to be very careful choosing between the Classic Confidence System or the Let It grow system, because although they may be similar they target some different issues. In this case the Classic Confidence system is more for an oily or healthy scalp but the Let It grow system is for a dry scalp. For a dry scalp you should not take the easy route using the 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner in Classic Confidence System (because its quicker and easier), instead you want a good separate conditioner, mask or oil to go with it, so purchasing the Let it grow system with a separate conditioner will nourish your hair with moisture and vitamins plus the Intense Repair Treatment to treat the hair loss intensively.  This is important because I if you start treating your hair for growth before it locks in the moisture it needs, that WILL cause your hair to get worse and possibly fall out! Using a two in one shampoo and conditioner will not get you out of this issue. So you DO need to know which products to use and how to use them.

Get Help To Pick Best System for You

So you guys please, have your market partner consult you in which products to use, better yet if you want to be even safer, download the chart below zoom in and chose your desired outcome in the Results column and move across the chart matching up your Concerns column to get the products you NEED! Not every market partner has educated them-self enough to tell you exactly what you need so I do recommend to use this chart, I use it on a daily basis myself talking to people every day with different hair concerns. Plus you know your hair best, whether its oily or dry, long or short, frizzy or straight, volume or flat, you also know best how your hair has worked with other products or what your hair has went through. So it is best for you to do your own research as well as use this chart and to speak to a Monat market partner who is familiar with the products to be informed on how to use them correctly. If something goes wrong know that you do have 30 days to return even used products and get a refund if you’ve chosen the wrong products. Don’t let the detox stage turn you away either because before you treat your hair you hair needs to be rid of all build up from other products and atmosphere, depending on how long and thick your hair is your detox may be anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Slow process but definitely worth it. See my Hair Detox post to understand what I mean about the detox stage-an explanation on how the products work in a three month period of time.

How many Bad Hair habits are you Committing?

I also want to say that if you don’t change your bad habits on how you treat your hair, you will never get to see your hair at it’s best. I’m not saying that Monat products can’t do magic, Monat has done magic to my hair, but there are so many things that I changed in my daily habits, that it has gotten increasing better than I ever ever had! Watching people do all these crazy things to their hair and us wanting to do the same–has blinded us to how much true damage we do to our hair. One example is the biggest thing right now, having blonde or platinum hair, the process to get to that is damage plus more damage, and some people start with already badly damaged hair and completely kill their hair in the outcome. Well that’s more of the big ones, but what about the little things like straightening your hair with a 20$ straightener that fries your hair each time you straighten, or washing your hair with hot water could be damaging.

Educate Yourselves

So do we need to educate ourselves on how to treat our hair correctly or just assume we are doing fine just as we are not seeing our hair getting any worse? Well, why do they say you only notice what you lose when you lose it?! In this case you don’t want that to be your hair. So sit down, do a little research and think through what you could be doing to your hair that is wrong because even brushing your hair correctly is important or drying it with a cotton T-shirt instead of a regular towel to avoid breakage and frizz. Your diet is also very important, and the types of products you use on your hair and scalp because that all goes into your blood stream. When was the last time you really thought through your hair routine and what you should or should not change? It should be that time again.

Thankful to Monat

I am so thankful to Monat, for giving my healthy thick hair back and because of that I have come to cherish my hair, educating and changing my dailly habits taking amazing care of my hair because my hair is a big part of my beauty and it probably is of yours too! So please comment below, I would love to help consult you or hear anything you may have to say or add! Blessings & hope you enjoyed this read!

Review on Monat Effortless Style System-Deep Smoothing Hair Products


In the past year Monat has added quiet a bit of new products to the line and that has been good news all along for me because I feel that Monat has become more and more effective, targeting my biggest issues with my hair. Its hard to keep up with what products may be the best for you now so therefore here’s a review for you on the new system that has finally come together (just what I have been hoping for)-the Smoothing Deep Conditioner, Smoothing Shampoo and Blow Out Cream-my three favorites in a new system called the Effortless Styling System, (truly what it speaks because you don’t need much effort or other product to style your hair and look like you put a great amount of time into it). I’ve always hated putting any product into my clean hair so I was happy to say good by to hair mouse or anything else I have tried to make it easier to style clean hair.

As you may already know, I live in Indiana where its humid even in the Spring, I can feel the humidity coming from miles away, I honestly don’t get enough oxygen around here, coming originally from WA state. Well that humidity is a huge problem for my hair. And anyone visiting me here from WA state notices right away that their hair looks like crap very quickly after styling it. Thanks to Monat I have found the right products for my hair to last through that humidity without looking like crap unless it just gets too hot over all, my head is sweating from the amount of hair I have and I just start thinking about chopping my long hair off.

So in this post I want to review this Effortless Styling system and tell you how I use it for best results.


 Smoothing Deep Conditioner

This is my all time favorite because it targets my biggest issue here in our state- again…the humidity, just as I’ve stated above. No matter how I’d style my hair, the minute I’m outside my hair goes flat, dry and frizzy. I have a thick head of hair and let me tell you, I have to separate my hair into 5 or 6 sections to curl or straighten all of my hair. So when I spend all that time and effort styling may hair just to find it frizzy and flat all over again, I get pretty angry. My hair is also quiet heavy, so by the time I’m done with my top layer, my bottom layer is already uncurled. This conditioner is very light on my heavy hair and that plays a big big role in the end result. With this Smoothing Deep Conditioner I have found my hair to hold its body better in humidity and produce less frizz than the usual.  The Smoothing Deep Conditioner is also easy to use, as long as you keep it in for a few minutes in the shower, it will do the trick. As a mom of two boys who are banging at the door while I’m showering, its perfect, I don’t have to spend a lot of time putting all sorts of product in my hair before styling, this conditioner does most of the trick with the help of a little hair spray which I only use about twice a week on the weekends. I also can’t forget to mention the ingredients this conditioner has, our patent formula of Rejuveniqe, Crodasorb, Procataline and Capyxil. Little goes a long way, comes in a 6 ounce tube, lasts me about half a year as often as I use it.


Smoothing Shampoo

This shampoo obviously works great in combination with the Smoothing Deep conditioner. SO I will not be super repetitive because it does pair together to target and accomplish the same issues as the conditioner above, but shortly I will say that this shampoo does help with taming frizz, fly always and just smoothing out your hair while most importantly cleansing it, getting all that build up out of your hair. I also like this shampoo some what more than the others because it is a smoothing shampoo, seems of creamier texture, it is easier to apply and wash out, regardless the natural ingredients and minus the regular harsh chemicals that would be put into your shampoos to make it wash out easily and squeaky clean. This shampoo leaves the moisture in your hair leaving it soft smooth and tamed without the harsh ingredients still pretty easy to wash out.

I do however want to give a tip to people who may have thick hair like me. I know most of our bottles of shampoo say start with lathering the length of your hair and then massage your scalp, but I actually do the opposite. If I start with shampooing my long thick hair, it truly takes me a lot of product to get that great amount of lather. SO I begin with massaging my scalp. I lather a quarter size of shampoo between palms and fingers, and apply it with what I call a scissor affect into my hair, touching the scalp, top middle and back leaving an amount of shampoo at each section, and then I start to massage my scalp gently moving the skin of my head from scalp (this plays an important role opening up the pores and getting those nutrients into the follicles of your hair) you will find that this gives you a quicker and easier lather that becomes very sudsy, and you can easily pull that through the length of your hair. As long as my hair is I do add another small amount of shampoo to the bottoms of my hair. Keep it in at least two minutes rinse and repeat. It is good to repeat to help you speed up the detox process if you do go through it, that is where the first wash brings out the build up and the second time the shampoo nourishes your clean hair with all its great nutrients helping it better take in/absorb all the oils, vitamins and anti-oxidants Monat shampoos contain.


Blow Out Cream

I know in the beginning I said I’v always hated putting product into my clean hair, but with this product it is so different. After applying it to my damp clean hair, it’s as if I did not add anything into my hair. It is very light weight and it is so creamy-it dries leaving your clean natural hair still super clean, no build up, not sticky, not greasy, light weight and better yet so smooth and shiny I can’t stop bragging about this product. My hair looks gorgeous as if I just got a professional blow out. I savoir this product using it only on special occasions or weekends when I go out, I love it. You need a small amount all through your hair, blow out and your good to go. You may not even need to straighten your hair because you’ll find your natural waves looking gorgeous with this product in your hair. Another quick tip is it’s best to use your hair dryer on the cooler setting so your cuticles can lock in that moisture leaving your hair smoother and less fragile preventing any future damage that can come your way!

3 Year Monat Review

Monat Review-Would I ever use something else other than Monat

It’s been a little over three years since using Monat, and so I thought why not give you ladies and gents another good updated and a more educated review on my experience with Monat Hair Products. By three years I have convinced my entire family even the stubborn ones, including my in laws that Monat is most likely better than what they are using now. This included even my father whom always used one shampoo all his life- Head and Shoulders because it was the only shampoo that didn’t give him dandruff or an itchy scalp, let’s just say he loves Monat. As for me, I still wouldn’t switch Monat Hair products for anything else, even though my Monat review will not be a 100% positive one.

First Time I Used Monat

I still can’t forget the first time I used Monat, after my first use of the Revive Shampoo and Revitalize conditioner, I let me hair air dry, the result was incredible, it looked as if I gave my self a nice blow out and used some special styling cream. My hair looked moisturized, not dry as usual.   Normally after washing with any other shampoo, I’d have a frizzy, puffy, and wavy head of hair that needed to be straightened or tied up in a pig tale to not look like I just woke up. With my thick head of hair I was also surprised by the volume on the top layers of my hair. The year that I started using Monat, just a few months before I stupidly bleached my hair twice in the same day because I freaked out – that scary orange patchy hair I had afterwards- I wasn’t to be seen by anyone. The next day I turned around and colored my hair back to dark after giving up on bleach and toner. Where was my brain that day, I don’t know but all I knew, my already bad hair loss became severe hair loss, that was when I cried to my husband and he bought me the entire Monat line on our first anniversary as a surprise, October 2014.

Monat Replenish mask & Rejuveniqe Review

I of course fell in love with the Replenish mask and the Rejuveniqe Oil, because I can confidently say they saved the last life in my dead hair. If someone was to tell me that I would have healthy beautiful hair again in just half a year, I would have never believed them. Before Monat I had nightmares of waking up with bald patches all over my hair, that is how stressed and scared I was of the hair loss and damage I was experiencing. You know how they say your curls will look much better on the second day, that was not for me, on the second day my head of hair looked like I was wearing a dry “hay” wig, with half crooked straw instead of soft wavy curls. That is why I hated taking the time to curl my thick hair, the effort only lasted for one day, the next day I would wash my hair again. I used the Replenish mask as directed, sometimes even left it over night for a stronger effect. I used a few drops of the Rejuveniqe oil mixing it with my shampoo, with my conditioner and the mask. Adding those few drops in each product added more moisture and more shine to my hair in the long run. (All but two of Monat’s products are infused with the Rejuveniqe blend)

monat review

Rejuveniqe Oil Mask Treatment

If you have severe hair loss, I mostly recommend treating and massaging your scalp with the Rejuveniqe oil. Before I have used coconut oil, argon oil and even castor oil on my scalp, but haven’t found anything to strengthen my roots or restore hair growth like the Rejuveniqe Oil did. If you have read any about the Rejuveniqe Oil before, you may have heard that it has the power to open up and unclog your clogged follicles, restoring hair growth. This was probably the most incredible thing I noticed after about 4 months using Monat. I color my hair dark every three to four months, I never had a problem with having so many new baby hairs at my hair line before Monat.  I can’t call this a problem, this was a good sign, it may have just looked a little funny on my naturally pale skin and dark hair, so I use a little hair spray to blend those baby hairs in with the rest of my hair. I was impressed by this because our hair line at the forehead is exposed to the most damage and clogging, including make up and UV damage and other daily atmosphere that we may be in. Our hair follicles are very much line nasty black heads if they get clogged, they just close up and obviously no action happens there in terms of hair growth. Before any action happens those follicles need to be unclogged, so that was what Rejuveniqe did for me.

Review on Monat Systems

Learning more about all the Monat systems, I quickly switched to the Renew shampoo from the Hydration system of Monat. I never had a problem with volume and so that is why I switched because I needed a shampoo to help balance my PH levels. I loved this shampoo the most until I started using my husbands 2 in 1, I can’t say now which one I love more. Let’s just say on my lazy days when I don’t want to use conditioner I use the Men’s 2 in 1 and love it. Actually some recent testimonial I read on, and I have read several more similar ones is about a lady who used the Black Men’s shampoo on bleached blondes and it worked as good as the purple shampoo, taking out the brassy color out of their hair, working as a toner. I thought this was pretty cool especially since Monat shampoos are naturally based products, I am totally considering trying to go back to light or blonde hair because with Monat I know my hair can survive it.

Monat began with only 4 systems, the Balance System which is now the Hydration system, Volume System, Men’s and the Intense Repair Treatment, now there are a total of 9 systems, including one for juniors, a full Men’s system, Let it Grow system, Classic Confidence system and Power Boost System. Monat doubled if not tripled their amazing products creating more styling products as well as another powerful shampoo and wellness supplements for your hair. It is best for you to consult with someone before purchasing to help you chose the right products for your hair, because Monat wants to treat everyone right so they have products for dry scalps, oily scalps, itchy scalps, curly hair and hard hair or fine thin hair. For three years of working with this company and using Monat I can help consult you if you comment below.

Three years down the road

So, three years later, I still have no hair loss, coloring my hair every 3-4 months my hair is not thirsty for moisture, my hair is strong, I don’t have a problem with breakage or dry ends, my second day curls are realistic, and with the help of the Champ dry shampoo by Monat I was able to prolong my color a little longer. I can not say though that Monat prolonged my color time wise but it did define my color, gave it that nice vibrance with that extra shine. I actually tried going back to using a different brand shampoo to see what it would do to my color because I wasn’t super happy with Monat that I still had to colour my hair every 3-4 months, I wanted longer, but I found other decent shampoos to keep my color about the same amount of time as Monat did, but I did notice that the other shampoos dried my hair out when Monat kept it hydrated and healthy in the overall process, so I stuck with Monat. I do admit it was lame though wanting color to last longer than 3-4 months, because even at the salon you are told the hair color will fade within 28 washes which is anywhere between 9 to 11 weeks if your’e washing 2 or 3 times a week.

Monat Pricing

In my first year with Monat, cost was a big concern for me. I come from a family where we all used Head and Shoulders spending 7-14$ depending on the size of the bottle, of course I wasn’t happy with Monat’s pricing. It was only later when I became comfortable with the cost of Monat, of course taking the most advantage of the market partner discount plus setting up a flex ship saves me on shipping and a great great discount and even free product in each purchase over 69$ or if you’re a VIP orders over 84$ get you that free awesome gift from Monat which are usually super and worth anywhere from 25$ or more. (Blow out cream-my favorite!!!) So here’s the thing, there’s a lot you may now know to why Monat is on the high end of pricing. A bottle of Monat’s shampoo is not diluted with a ton of water like your cheaper brand shampoos even most salon proffesional products. I’m not saying Monat uses no water, of course water is needed in any shampoo to help it lather at all in your hair. So not only does this mean that a bottle of Monat shampoo contains more product than water, but that it can last you longer than any other shampoo, because this means you need to use about 1/3 of the amount of Monat shampoo on your hair then you would of your regular shampoo.


Why is Monat priced so highly

We also do not realize that Monat uses the safest ingredients to keep shelf life and to help lather in your hair then any other shampoos do. Let’s face it, Monat does not claim to be 100% natural (if I just opened your eyes, then great!), Monat claims to be 100% naturally based and cruelty free, theres a difference. This means Monat uses ingredients closest to its source-high quality extracts and essential oils and vitamins in pleasing and effective formulations. It’s common sense that if any products were 100% percent natural that first of all, they would NOT lather in your hair because it’s Nature-nature is not foamy, and the shampoo would not come in liquid form, at least not for long and it would need to be refrigerated or kept at a certain temperature to not go bad. And so this is where the name Monat comes in play. Mo-stands for Modern, “nat” stands for nature, meaning that the two came in harmony to work together to bring out the Monat Mission. So modern science is used to extract these natural essential oils from mother nature to come in a patent formulation to later heal and revive our hair.

Monat is “naturally based” there’s a difference

So why is Monat not 100% natural. Well there are three types of ingredients used in the products to help the products exist over all, and these are emulsifiers, surfactants and preservatives. Heck, you probably don’t even know what the first two are, I only knew that preservatives were 100% bad, but was I wrong?! After some research I learned preservatives aren’t all that bad, they are even good because you know what they do? They are used to keep our products and us safe from different types of mold, bacteria, yeast and fungus that can grow in the product, because that is mother nature for you. Even we humans will one day….you know what I mean. So to control that Monat uses under 1% in it’s total formulation, which is a ton times less than your regular super market shampoos. Also the preservatives Monat uses is a natural alternative that is safe and non toxic to human beings.

Emulsifiers, Surfactants, Preservatives

An emulsifier is what blends water and oil to become one, that is how you get that creamy effect in a shampoo. Without emulsifiers your shampoo would be seperated like a bottle of water and oil in two. Last but not least surfactants. A job of a surfactant is to help cleanse, it reduces the surface tension between to liquids or a liquid and a solid or in other words its what causes foam and bubbles. It breaks up the dirt from your scalp, or the dirt from another object. There are good surfactants and there are bad surfactants. Monat is known to not use SLS, which has recently created lots of controversy in different brands. There are some brands that use harsh surfactants in skin care and hair care, that do more damage then cleansing. Obviously the harsh surfactants are easier and quicker to use but they are also the cheapest way for a company to go, so many brands use the harsh surfactants (also called “detergents” if considered harsh) in your daily skin care and hair care, as they do in your home cleaning supplies. Pretty harsh right? This is where I want to point out how quickly and easily most our super market shampoos lather, at most compared to Monat. Monat advises to wash your hair twice for this reason, Monat uses gentle surfactants that will not foam up as easily but will also not strip your hair of it’s natural oils like the harsh surfactants will. In case you were wondering why your hair may be dry, this is why. If companies use detergents/ or harsh surfactants in your house cleaning supplies, why they heck are they used in our hair and skin care products?! I am blessed to have learned so much from doing research on different ingredients as well as reading up on Monat Global’s blog.

There isn’t much left to say for me in this Monat Review after writing a whole essay, I’ll be done here soon (hopefully just one more paragraph). My conclusion is it’s not so much about how you like the products from first use, and what they do in that first week or two. But it is in the knowledge of the product, its what’s inside and what’s not inside and its the long term effect that it has in your hair, because I don’t know about you, I’ve only seen my hair stay the same or the health go down hill with any products, but with Monat even just one bottle of shampoo showed me a dramatic difference in my hair, and that was after the detox stage that Monat took me through. That is the one thing I think I missed in this review, is that Monat shampoo doesn’t work like a regular shampoo, easily stripping off dirt with cheap detergents leaving your hair dry and squeaky clean, but Monat actually cleanses deeply, unclogging all of your follicles, while healing your cuticles and restoring moisture and balance in your hair by absorbing into the scalp and hair. I have thick hair, so my detox stage was not fun, and I warn you your’s may not be either. The first two days after washing with Monat was nice clean hair but a day later and the middle back part of my hair felt nasty and greasy, what I did not realize was that Monat was deeply detoxing my hair from all buildup I have had for years and years. Just because most shampoos lather so well and get so foamy doesn’t mean they deeply cleanse your hair, this extra foam and harsh ingredients used in the products actually add up as build up, because unlike Monat so microscopically small full of essential oils, vitamins, beta carotene, omega 3 fatty acids–other shampoos just sit on top of your hair instead of absorbing and healing your strands.

So it is what it is. Monat is good and I recommend it. There’s a lot more you can learn about Monat from other testimonies about regrowing hair, using Monat during chemo, or helping regrow hair for people suffering from balding or Alopecia, thyroid issues and hormone imbalances. Monat now carries almost twice as many systems and products all together than it did when it just launched three years ago, there’s lots of great styling products all waiting for you to try.
