Let me tell you, have I used some harsh harsh shampoos on my colored hair to experience the quickest color fade ever! How I hate that!! I have to pay at least 75$ to $95 to color my super thick hair and I don’t even go to the greatest salons in town everyone talks about. And then I screw up using a terrible shampoo and wash my color out! Threw away 75$ for NOTHING! Feels great right?!
So I wanted to share that after using Monat for over a year now, I just now realized how SAFE Monat shampoos really are for color treated hair.
I usually use semi-permanent color which promises to stay up to 3 months. With Monat my color stays those three months even longer.
How do I know this? Well I never noticed a change in my hair color until I used something other than Monat.
I recently ran out of my Monat shampoo, and ended up having to use Pantene Repair and Protect shampoo that I had laying around at home. I just dyed my hair probably two weeks before that, so I washed my hair with Pantene to find my hair an ugly brass color just after one wash. Seriously?!!I was SHOCKED! I just colored my hair to a beautiful dark brown color and now my hair is the color of brass!!!
So..what chemical strips color from your hair? & this doesn’t just go for color treated hair but even your natural hair color WILL GET STRIPPED WITH THIS ELEMENT.
SULFATE!!! Sulfate is what strips you of your color. Avoid this element! Avoid it in your shampoos, in your conditioners, oils, serums, mouses, hair sprays..! I think you got the point but by all means avoid Sulfate in your hair at all times. Here’s why:
Just take some baking soda and scrub something that you were never able to get clean before with just water or regular soap. For instance around your sink whole in the bathroom or bathtub or the grout between your tile floors or just a cup you drank tea from and left tea’line marks on the cups. & see what happens! (using baking soda)
Baking soda is a salt/sulfate and it will clean all that greatly and easily. But how? It strips or scrubs off the top layer of whatever you are cleaning! Why do you think baking soda is added to your daily toothpaste? Because it is powerful to clean rough surfaces! But does your soft gentle hair need something this powerful to wash your hair?
Your hair does not need sulfate, while it may be a powerful ingredient in your dental products. Instead of using harsh salt and sulfate shampoos look for something that does not contain it. For instant Monat Shampoos, you have 3 that you can chose from. The Revive, Renew or the Men’s shampoo.
You will find that using more natural shampoos, or shampoos like Monat that do NOT contain sulfate may be harder to wash out of your hair, but remember again why that is. Because it does not contain sulfate that acts to (harshly and easily) strip your hair of what they say is “build up” of other products, but truly it strips your hair of the natural oils & color molecules that you DO need; leaving your hair SQUEEKY CLEAN (clean meaning free of the natural essential oils you did need in your hair to stay soft and nourished and keep its color) Trust me on this.
This is also why sulfate free shampoos advise you to wash your hair twice. First to get rid of build up and second to actually cleanse and nourish your hair, while cheap shampoos or sulfate shampoos claim to condition and cleanse your hair all in one wash. And guess what THEY REALLY DO but that is NOT what you want. They wash your hair out completely with one wash with that power of sulfate!! That is just any easy way for brands to sell themselves and make even more money off you once you finally realize how harshly you have been treating your hair with their products, seeking more safer and more expensive products in the end. Same goes with the harsh fragrances the put into your shampoos leaving your hair smell amazing when it all together is damaging your hair.
Cheap and quick may be the easiest way out, but you may be calling your hair dead and dry even quicker!
I have shared this in a few of my other posts but I can not get over how great Monat has been for my hair. This is what Monat does NOT contain! & you should probably invest into something like it!
