Hi friends! I recently did a trial session of Monat hair products, and I’m excited to share my experience with you guys!
When my friend Lacey from back home first asked me about trying Monat, I will admit I was skeptical (as I am about a lot of similar products I’ve been offered). But then I started thinking more about it, and here’s what got me:
My friend Lacey is a very talented, knowledgable hair stylist, and she’s been a hair wizard for as long as I’ve known her. So I figured if someone who knows all there is to know about hair is recommending this product, what could it hurt to try?! She knows her stuff, so I trusted her recommendation. But I still wasn’t sure how much of a difference I’d notice within just a few weeks.
When I agreed to give Monat a shot, I did a little bit of research. (Y’all know I don’t post stuff on here that I haven’t researched and wouldn’t recommend to a bestie in real life!) The Renew Shampoo (which is what I tried along with the conditioner) is known to improve strength and vitality of your hair, and promotes new growth which helps prevent thinning. This is what got me so excited to try it, but more on that in a sec. Their products are also salt and sulfate free, and no harmful colors or fragrances. This shampoo is also safe to use with colored hair!
Now for a little history lesson on my hair and the why behind taking a leap and trying these products. If you’ve kept up with my blog or have known me for awhile, you may already know this… but back in senior year of high school/freshman year of college, I had a severe eating disorder. Long story short, one of the side effects from everything was that my hair started falling out (more so than normal shedding). Ever since then, my hair hasn’t been the same, it’s more fine and thin than it used to be. So the chance to get my hair thicker again and prevent further thinning, sounded really tempting! I’d love to get my hair back to the thickness it was once had!
SO, all that being said, here’s what I found after using Monat for 20 days:
- I was able to go 3-4 days without washing my hair, without it looking greasy, whereas before it got greasy by day 2 (and lets be honest I’d go 3 but day 3 is always a hat day lol). I also didn’t have to use any dry shampoo.
- I already have new baby hairs growing (eek)
- My hair holds curl all the way until next wash day (without having to be re-curled) and stays straight for longer as well
- I got more hair compliments than normal!
- Monat actually smells amazing
- The hair spray is super strong and holds forever (and also smells great)
Before… (and yes I need to get my roots touched up!)
After… (different lighting but you get the idea 😉 )
The only thing is that it’s a little more expensive than your average shampoo/hair products, and this is honestly the reason I was so skeptical at first. But they do say you get what you pay for, so if it truly helps your hair, then definitely worth it.
