Does Monat really work? I too asked this question, once upon a time. Now? I’m a MM/Founder with Monat. But first I was a customer. The results I’ve personally experienced have been impressive…and surprising.
As an aesthetician (and just the simple fact of being a woman) there are two things in this world I’ve definitely used my fair share of – skincare and haircare products. One could quite literally go on a shopping spree in my bathroom closet. So aggravating when I think of the money I’ve dumped on expensive salon products only to then not live up to their claims. Hair treatments? Don’t even want to think about it. – Now there was a lot of $$ wasted for sure!
Now let’s talk Monat…
Monat haircare line launched October 1st. 2014. Monat is a naturally- botanically based line, with Monat Global’s FDA approved facility located in Miami Fl.
The Monat line offers something for both men, women and is even safe to use on children. – In fact, this line has done wonders for my 6 year old daughter’s corse, curly hair.
Third party, clinically tested and proven to deliver said results. Prior to becoming a Monat Partner I was unaware that all professional lines on the market are NOT clinically tested. I found this to be quite interesting and surprising…I suppose I just always assumed.
There are many great haircare lines on the market – Aveda, Kerastase, Pureology…just to name a few. However, none of these lines performs as Monat.
Each Monat product is infused with natural botanicals working in unison feeding the 3 inner layers of the hair shaft; rebuilding dormant bulbs and follicles. – from deep inside all the way to the ends. No other line on the market today does this and Monat is clinically proven to do so. The result is longer, stronger, healthier, youthful hair.
So what do I think of Monat? Let me put it this way…The first time having used only a couple of the products I was pleasantly shocked! I immediately called my mother and two of my friends (quite serious). I had never experienced such immediate visual results from a haircare product in my home, or in a salon for that matter.
One thing I should note is that I’m not easily impressed when it comes to any form of products. However, Monat is far beyond your average haircare. It reconstructs, smooths, protects, stimulates growth, prevents loss, strengthens, adds brilliance, shine and then some.
Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive is Monat’s signature product and is the foundation of the line. This is what truly sets Monat apart from all others.
Rejunveniqe Oil Intensive is a patent pending formula, made from 11 essential oils found all across the world in their highest quality form. This amazing blend is infused throughout each and every product within the line. Due to it’s unique, small molecular structure it has the ability to penetrate deep within the dermis/scalp. – also acting as a carrier for other ingredients.
Not only for the hair, but for the skin as well. This power blend includes some of the rarest oils on earth, closely mimicking our own bodies natural oil makeup. Overtime our body’s ability to produce the amount of oils needed for youthful looking skin and hair diminishes, causing us to lose that desired youthful appearance. Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive makes up for that loss. This oil is jammed packed with all the minerals, vitamins and the anti-oxidants that our hair and skin thirsts for, converting one’s tresses and skin back to a more balanced, healthy, youthful state.
Curly/wavy heads? That’d be me too. After years of flat ironing and performing other damaging rituals, my hair had become so damaged I no longer was able to wear curly. The little amount of curl I was able to achieve was dry, frizzy and felt like straw. Horrible! My once trademark curls seemed to be just one more thing to add to the list of “Things lost to my youth”. That is until… 🙂
After only two washes with Monat shampoo, Rejuvenqe oil and Restore leave-in my curls came back. I was absolutely impressed! Over time my curls became even that much more alive.
Hair loss/Regrowth – Prior to Monat I was experiencing quite a bit of fallout – it was actually starting to freak me out a bit!…I mean how much hair could I really spare to lose anyway? Following Monat , fallout subsided, hair became thicker, and I experienced regrowth around my hairline, an area during pregnancy that had become considerably thin. Although one can find several lines on the market targeting balding, thinning, etc., unlike Monat these lines include a high number of harmful chemicals with very unpleasant (sometimes severe) possible side effects.
Oh yes, and my hair now grows like a weed! I’ve since chopped my hair again for reasons of convenience, but being that my hair now grows so quickly…If I ever do decide on long locks again, no problem. 😉
From the start, one aspect that strongly stood out to me was the number of issues and needs that only one bottle of Monat shampoo is able to address and tackle.- this is not something I had or since seen in other lines.
With other professional lines one will find a wide selection of various shampoos offered. Several to chose from, each targeting a specific issue. Thereby forcing the consumer to forgo addressing many other needs and concerns. With Monat this no longer is an issue.
One bottle of Monat shampoo will restore on the cellular level, add strength, color stay, shine, fullness, desired texture, increase manageability, lesson dry time, prevent hair loss, stimulate growth, protect, enhance color and again, so much more!
– And that’s just in discussing Monat’s shampoos! When was the last time your root lifter also brought the benefits above, all along being alcohol free! As an esthetician I’ve been shopping the professional supply houses for years. Many times I recall going in and becoming so frustrated when looking for styling products formulated for dry or curly hair, to smooth texture/combat frizz, or achieve volume. All contained drying alcohols and agents. Ironic isn’t it? The very thing that will assist also creates the very issue trying to remedy. – it’s a cycle. – Monat contains no drying alcohols. Why this is so difficult to find in the world of haircare, I have no idea.
The masque? Hands down the BEST I have ever used…and believe me, I have used many, especially those given much hype. I also use the masque frequently on my daughter’s hair and the results have been outstanding. Using just a bit as a leave -in gives my hair even more fullness, and desired texture. For my daughter it also does wonders as a detangler! In the mornings I add a touch with water and run through her hair. You have no idea the nightmare I use to face each morning preparing her for school, and the time that USE to be involved. – Happy Mom!
I could go on and on with specifics on each of the product uses, and the benefits I have experienced, but simply put…There is really is NOTHING else like Monat on the market today.
So whether you’re looking to tackle a specific issue or protect your healthy locks, Monat is definitely a line worth trying out. I’m fully confident you will be just as impressed as I have been.
Best of all, with a 30 day, 100% money back guarantee there is absolutely no risk. Monat can only be purchased through a Monat Partner, found in Partnered salons or through Monat’s corporate website.
A little 411 on the Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive;
Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive – Nicknamed Liquid Gold, and with 101 uses this nickname is very well suited.
This proprietary, patent-pending formula is the heart of the Monat line and is infused throughout each and every product.
A blend of 11+ unique molecular ingredients –including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids – that mimic the body’s natural oils! The proprietary formula reduces hair thinning, prevents oxidative stress and adds incredible volume, repairing the hair with instantly visible, long-lasting shine without the damaging effects of silicone.
Due to Rejuveniqe’s unique molecular structure it has the ability to penetrate deeper within the scalp/hair shaft and dermis, working at the cellular level. This also allows to act as a carrier for other ingredients, enabling them to penetrate deeper as well. (check out my Rejuveniqe review on Skin Chatter for anti-aging befits).
Not only great for hair, but equally beneficial for skin. I add a couple drops to my day/night cream prior to applying, and the results have been awesome. I also apply directly to the eye area, and lashes. Lashes? You will notice longer, healthier lashes in no time., and less fallout.
Update: So, it’s been quite a while since I first wrote this review, therefore I figured an update may be a good idea. Am I still happy with my Monat products? Absolutely. I’m especially in love with two of the newest products. Moxie Magnifying Mousse and Intense Repair Treatment Shampoo.
Moxie Magnifying Mousse – Okay, some of you are “really” going to get why I’m so in LOVE with this mousse. As mentioned above, I have dry, over processed and more fine hair. Mousse has always been a welcomed product given its benefits. However, finding one that doesn’t dry out my hair, turning me into a hot mess an hour after applying, is nearly impossible. Well, well…This mousse does NOT dry out my hair in the least. I seldom where my curls these days, but the fullness and smooth blowout received from this mousse is awesome. I’ve now placed this one in my top 3 faves. Tip: Careful not to overuse. If too much is applied, your hair will have a coated feel once dry. – it’s very concentrated, so may take a couple uses before having correct amount down. You also may be a bit surprised when first dispense. This mousse is not as foamy as others, but rest assured, this in not a defect, just the way it is.
IRT shampoo – I’ve been using this latest shampoo on a regular basis. IMO, in terms of hydration, feel and texture of hair once styled, it lies somewhere between Monat’s Revive shampoo and Renew. The shampoo has a rosemary-mint scent and the same potent combination of naturally based ingredients to support the regrowth of hair as BLACK Shampoo + Conditioner: REJUVENIQE™, CAPIXYL™, PROCATLINE™ and CRODASORB™.
Rejuveniqe Oil Tip – Several months ago I started applying a bit to my eyebrows. My goal was to stimulate growth and rid my brows of those pesky gray hairs that had shown up. I’m delighted to say..it worked! 🙂
