Review on Monat Effortless Style System-Deep Smoothing Hair Products

effortless-style-new

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)

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.

3way

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 review

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. I hope this was an enjoyable and informative read! Leave your questions and comments below!

Monat Hair products Review after 5 months of use

Monat Review My Personal Journey

There are brands and companies that launch everyday, some of which thrive and never stop growing, some never take off to a good start and just die out after a few years. When Monat just launched I wondered how this brand of a new hair line would do. I have never seen a brand grow as quickly as Monat, making 25$ million in sales just in the first year of launch when their goal was only 1$ million. Who else over achieves their goal 25s that?! Incredible I think! When you see numbers like this in the growth of a company, I think you not only see a successful growing brand but a quality brand. Monat worked really hard to produce product that so many people love.

This original post was written by me in 2014-a review of my hair after 5 months of using Monat. I decided to keep the same title but update to 4 years later now 2018, making this post longer and more informative so this can be the place where you will find all you want to know about Monat. I will not only review the products and talk about how my hair has changed in the past four years but also about the growth and business side of this company. If  you are thinking I will only say the good, you are wrong! I think we can all find ups and downs about a business or any product.

This post I imagine will be quiet long after I finish it, so below I will include bullet points of subtitles in case you don’t want to read the entire post, so find the subtitle you’d like to read about and scroll down! I would love to hear your comments so please leave a comment if there’s anything you’d like to say or I may have missed & you’d like to know  about! I’d be more than happy!

Monat Review 5 months – 4 years

Below I have written about my journey with Monat from my 5 months to all the way up to 4 years, I hope you will enjoy reading it and experience same results that I have experienced with Monat!

Pros of Monat Hair Products

  • The first thing I couldn’t believe is how many new baby hairs I started to see at my hair line after about 4 to 6 months of using Monat. Two years of using Monat and till today, my hair line has completely changed. I never realized this, but apparently my hair line was a receding hair line before Monat, where in the front it was shaped like a letter M, now its almost square shape where the curved bold parts are now grown in with new hair. The only way I noticed this difference is when I pull my hair back in a high pony tail these short new hairs would stick out. This was never expected, I was in for a great surprise. I honestly have never realized that I had a receding hair line if not for these short new growth hairs in the front.

Monat Rejuveniqe

 

  • I quit losing so much hair.  I used to SHED a lot of hair back in the day. Excuse my bold use of words but that’s how bad it got, it got so bad I’d have nightmares about waking up with bold patches on my head. I was terrified. I didn’t know what to do. I reconsidered heat styling and chemical treatment and I was never going to use bleach again, but even before all that damage was done to my hair, hair loss ran in my family it was in our genes. Both my sisters and mom had the same struggle. After about a good six months of using Monat, Monat strengthened the roots of my hair, and I truly felt that difference. I started to see less and less lose hairs at the bottom of my bath tub after showering. I quit seeing hair in my own food or collecting hair all over my shirts after combing. I know that after a good year I would see only 1-2 lose hairs at the bottom of the shower, compared to clumps of hair that I used to find. (This feels amazing because it used to be the most painful sight to see so much lose hair everywhere, and my pony tail thinning quickly.) I would say I lost about 1/3 thickness of my hair before I started using Monat. Four years later, I am requesting to get my hair thinned out when I get my short A-line hair cut.

 

  • My hair is very nice and soft, seriously I considered my hair to be horse hair because it was so rough, so dry and brittle before. This was a difference I noticed  right away, the rich nourishing products really moisturized and livened my hair. Within the first use the texture of my hair was different and amazing. That’s when I knew the products were going to work, because usually after any other shampoo my hair would be left dry and out of control frizzy with some pretty ugly waves, not something I’d want to show off.

 

  • The Rejuveniqe Oil that I would use as a mask treatment every week or so, thickened my hair with moisture and nutrients– running my fingers through my hair feels great! This Rejuveniqe Oil is the back bone product of Monat, every product in the Monat line except 2 or 3 are infused with this oil. SO using the oil straight up is super convenient, quicker and better results going by the 13+ essential oils in this liquid gold of a product.

 

 

  • The ends of my hair especially thickened. You know how your hair looks thinner at the ends from most damage? That’s what I used to have but I have been applying the Rejuveniqe Oil to the ends of my hair while damp or the Leave In conditioner and that has saved my ends from damage, thinning and split ends. Three years later and Monat comes out with Rejuvabeads, if you haven’t seen a short video of real people applying this product just to one split end hair, you’re missing out. It is amazing how it mends the two ends back together, just incredible, I am definitely an owner of this one amazing product because of the heat styling my hair goes constantly.

Monat Heavenly Hydrating Masque

  • I love my natural waves! My hair looks so healthy, I used to be self conscious about letting my natural waves be, I’d never go out with non-straightened hair, but now I can let my hair breathe in it’s natural state and still look awesome like I styled my waves purposely. Pretty amazing!

 

  • Compliments, compliments, & more compliments. The people that see me almost everyday have noticed the huge difference in my hair, they compliment on the length and health of my hair all the time! A few of my friends say “your hair looks so much better now!” its like almost offensive but thats because I didn’t want to admit to myself that my hair was pretty bad before. I felt like a person again, with an improved identity because hair is a big thing for me.

 

  • I found more hope and more confidence in feeling great about my hair once again. I do not have to chop my hair off like I once thought was my only choice was to regrow beautiful healthy long hair, instead I just brought it back to life with Monat products. Four years later, yea I ended up cutting my hair short but thats because I have three kids now, I’m 25 a wife and a stay home work from home mom, that keeps me quite busy, especially with two boys under three and a newborn baby girl I’ve been blessed with!

Monat Renew Shampoo Review

 

  • The Monat hair product line keeps growing and I just seem to love love all the products they come up with, like the Eye Wonder for thicker eye brows and longer lashes or the blow out cream and amazing all time favorite Monat hair spray!

 

  • Monat has also came up with more systems to pick from, which is awesome because it’s not just the volume, hydration and Men’s system anymore but there’s systems that were recreated for all hair issues that cover just about anything dry hair, frizzy hair, hair growth hair volume & hydration, itchy scalp, dry or oily scalp, all mixed in to create that perfect system for all hair and skin types. It can be wonderful once you find those perfect products for your hair.

 

  • Monat Cheat Sheet-When the Monat product line just launched it was the job of a market partner to consult you in their own knowledge towards the best products for you, now you can trust the scientists and biologists behind Monat to help you pick the best products for your hair type by creating a very detailed chart containing your hair desires and your hair concerns to match up to lead you to the products you need most! This is an amazing tool something you should NOT go without looking at.

Cons of Monat Hair ProductsMonat Review

  • I don’t believe I achieved super shiny hair within the first year of using Monat, but lets remember the super dead straw hair I began with. I believe I put my hopes up too high and did not achieve shine so much so soon, the health of my hair though did change in the first several months. To update this to four years of use-my hair is a bit shiny now but not super amazingly sleek and shiny as I’d want it to be. I color my hair every 3 to 4 months, Ive bleached my hair about 5 times in the past three years and other factors like heat styling my hair almost daily or teasing my hair could be whats keeping my hair from being all that shiny as I’d want it to be.

 

  • Expensive and still expensive-I do get a nice discount as a distributor of Monat, but even then I admit the products are still definitely on the expensive side for me. That’s why they say you get what you pay for. Before Monat I would never spend more than $10 on a bottle of shampoo. Call me cheap, I was young and didn’t really know putting cheap shampoo in my hair would be so damaging. On the bright side though, there are ways to save money on Monat products. The best way of course is to catch the flash sales once you’re a VIP or a Market Partner. Sometimes, very rare though-these amazing flash sales are for regular retail customers also, but its hard to catch that if you are not getting email notifications as a VIP would or not kept in contact with any market partner.

Monat Flex Ship or VIP Membership

What is the Monat flex ship or VIP membership all about. As a VIP  member or in other words if you sign up for the Monat Flex Ship that costs 20$ to sign up, you get the perks and benefits of a great 15% discount on each purchase, and FREE SHIPPING (which varies anywhere from 10-15$ depending on where you live), and that’s not all! You get to pick when you want the products shipped to you 3 times in a year and which products of your choosing. That’s still not all folks you also receive an exclusive gift free for you in every qualified flexship(84$ or more), available only for VIP members. Or if you are a Market partner with a set up flex ship you get even a bigger discount (30% off) plus all the other VIP perks. The free exclusive gifts are bran new products that are not available for purchase for any other customers and you’d be the first to try them! For example one product I got was an amazing BLOW OUT cream?! Very cool, it is now part of the product line after all VIP’s loved the styling cream.

 

MONAT Brand Shareable 3

The requirement to meet VIP standards is to make three orders of at least 84$ USD in one year, 30 to 60 days apart (or more if pushed out farther in your desire later at log in). This is the way it works. When you just sign up as a VIP you make your first purchase of 84$ or more and then you pre-order or set up the next flex ship 30 to 60 days prior to that day. You do NOT pay for this second flex ship until the 30 or 60 days pass, you will then be charged to your credit card at the selected date you pick for your next flex ship at the time of signing up. All you have to do after that is select a third shipment another 30 or 60 days apart and you’re all set. You also do not have to set up this third flex ship at the time of signing up, but anytime later you log back in,. You are able to log in to your account and push the flex ship another 30 to 60 as long as you make three shipments within one year. (Warning, if you decide to cancel your VIP membership before the three orders of 84$ are fulfilled you will be charged a cancellation fee of 50$ USD.

Join The  VIP Experience And Save!

I also recommend to spread out your three orders at least 60 days apart if not more, reason being– is if there is a great flash sale that all of a sudden comes up but you already have a flex ship scheduled that same month you are not able to make that flash sale count as one of your three required shipments, although you CAN still take advantage of that sale overall. Just if you’re like me, you don’t want to get overstocked on product but also take advantage of a greater flash sale making that count as one of your three shipments, because believe it–if you use the Monat shampoo the right way it should last you 2 to 3 months easily if you’re using it on your own.

Monat Distributor-Monat Market Partner

The VIP membership is not the only way to save money with Monat but you can also sign up as a Monat Market Partner and receive even a greater discount than the VIP member. To sign up as a market partner you have to pay at least 100$ for the starter kit or chose one of the other premium options that come with real size products/product pack also with the starter kit included (but the 100$ fee waived if chosen premium options), these would be the better choices for starting a business with Monat giving you a greater 40% discount off the products in the first month of joining Monat. As a Monat distributor your regular all time discount is 30% off, (40% only in the first month of joining).

The more you build the more you earn, and this empire is no where close to end or to fall because Monat is going world wide, launching in third world countries, in the second year launched in Canada and third  year in  the United Kingdom, and so many more countries to come!

How Monat Came About

It all started about 4 years ago with the Urdaneta family when the son Ray Urdaneta decided to launch this hair care line called Monat. His father Luis Urdaneta started in Tupperware years and years ago and quickly worked his way to the top of the company.

Later he and his wife launched a skin care company that has been going strong for 16 years in Buenos Vela. With such success in both companies and a lifetime of experience in multi level marketing, you know you can trust the family that is behind Monat, because they know what they are doing.

They have build the greatest compensation plan of all times, (and I will be sure to write a post about that later). The president Stuart MacMillan, who used to be the president of Arbon, came out of retirement to become part of this ground floor opportunity of hair care. He knew he couldn’t miss out on such great potential with this amazingly successful family and new line of products called Monat. Monat hired the most talented scientist from Scotland – Jamie Ross who formulated the creation of Monat! Monat has got a super team and a great sister company who brought such growth and success to this business.

Within the next two years Ray Urdaneta wants to pay out 1 million families all over the world in commissions who join the Monat business. That is a LOT of families, obviously Monat is going global, already in US, Canada and UK, there is just so much more potential growth. There is money to make and hair to heal all over the globe, I promise you that!

So I’m sure you all want to hear numbers. Numbers numbers & numbers! I am like way too excited to write about this part because the numbers of the growth of this company in such a small period of time it blows my mind! & I’m about to blow yours!

 

Monat Double Action Hydrating Serum

In the beginning, as I have already mentioned at top, our CEO projected a sales goal of 1$ million in the first year of launch, Monat made 25$ Million dollars in the first year of launch!! 25 times their goal! By second year..hold your breath for this one, it almost tripled to 70 million dollars in sales by second year!! By third year Monat has grown to $300 million dollars in sales, and soon projected to be a billion dollar company in the next couple years! Yes, Monat has grown quicker than our good old famous Apple CO. unbelievable right. I think this is where you make up your mind where you know the products are good and the business is also because even with these insane numbers, Monat still has only a 1% return rate on the products. People are loving Monat, and Monat is loving us because they recently came out with a crazy amazing product that no one has ever had and it will never be imitated. Monat is changing the hair revolution with this new product in 2018. It’s already out and its called Rejuveniqe S,..I will soon write a post about it, and I will call it “The Hair Product that will Blow Your Mind” because it literally blew mine! I hate to brag, just kidding i LOVe to brag about Monat, but I have never seen a hair company work so hard on the science part of the product like Monat does, and I will tell you why in my next post about this amazing product!

Monat Review Conclusion

Overall, Monat has worked SO well for me. It didn’t only bring my hair back to life, but Monat has taught me how and motivates me daily to take good care of my hair. I say this because I am the girl who would buy a 2-in-1 shampoo & conditioner,  wash my hair once and be done with, not using anything else in my hair except hair spray for styling on occasions.

I would recommend these products to anyone who struggled with hair problems like me; hair loss, breakage, heat or chemical damage,or anyone who is looking for something more natural to maintain healthy beautiful hair. For those who do have healthy hair, you may not want to spend this much $$ on hair products, if you found products you are happy with, I am happy for you! Keep using what you are using, but know the ingredients in your products, know the ingredients you want to avoid, and pay attention– do they own up to the promises they  claim to bring? Because for me, Monat actually did. Some of us look for a little more then just a good cleanser with a great scent, at least I do now after seeing cheap shampoos dry out my hair. I hope you find what you seek!

So now… if i had to pick, my favorite 4 products they would be:

1)Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive -about four times a month I apply the oil to my scalp as a mask treatment, wrapping my head with a warm towel for half an hour, and treat myself to my own mini spa day. I embrace it! My time to relax and enjoy myself with a cup of coffee or a hot bath! Daily I apply a tiny bit to the ends of my hair to protect from heat damage, styling regularly, and the awesome part is you can’t tell I have any oil in my hair because if you put the right amount (very little ) it does not give a greasy look. I achieved moisture and hair growth with this rich product.

2)Revive Shampoo and Revive Conditioner-these are two different products, but they should always stick together because it does a great job cleansing and conditioning my hair. Both products are very silky, cleanses hair leaving it very soft with natural volume. Smells great too! These products helped me stop hair loss.

3)Replenish Masque –  I use this product twice a week, which is how many times I wash my hair in a week. You might think “gross” but washing hair everyday is not good for you. I wouldn’t even recommend it with Monat, because your hair produces its own natural oils that maintain healthy hair. So don’t wash out your natural oils completely! After using Monat Shampoo I apply the masque to damp hair and leave it in for 5-to 10 minutes, and rinse, without using conditioner, I alternate between the two. This masque is what seems to repair my hair, it hydrates my moisture-starved hair with nutrients and oils. And it proves to boost hair growth as well and I have to say it did! I have so much little new growth everywhere!

4)Intense Repair Treatment I love this product because it is so powerful yet it is simple to use, it is a leave-in treatment. Just spray a tiny bit to the roots of hair at the scalp, blow dry and done!  This product was clinically proven many times for preventing hair loss and strengthened the follicles of my hair, boosting hair growth as well.
