Monat and Why I’m Sticking With It

I’ve been using solely Monat products on my hair for a year and four months now and I’m honestly the best thing I’ve ever used. Honestly at this point in my life I feel like I’ve used nearly all the available products out there and Monat is hands down the best I’ve come across. I’ve used products that have cost $1.99 and I’ve used hair products that cost well into the $75 (and higher) range. While Monat is more expensive than some it’s still not the most expensive and more importantly IT WORKS! Trust me, I was skeptical. I’d hear crazy stories, been asked to buy the products in the most annoying ways and even tried a sample and frankly didn’t like it at first. However after some intense color damage, postpartum hair loss and poor upkeep on my part I didn’t feel like I had anything to loose when I saw my good friend Aimee had started selling it. So I gave it a shot. After two washes and seeing immediate results ( This is what happened for me, every one is different.) I upgraded my account from being a VIP Customer to a Market Partner because if this helped me I knew it could help a lot of other people and I wanted to be a part of that.

On the right was my hair in January 2019. I would go on to color it with more vivid colors and eventually going dark brown in April 2019. The photo on the left was my hair in early March of 2020. No additional color had be done to my hair and I hadn’t had a single hair cut. That’s all Monat.

Since using Monat there have been a number of changes in my hair and I want to share with you what those are.

  • Strength
  • Shine
  • Density
  • Growth
  • Health

I also have a list of must-have, use all the time products.

  • Revive Shampoo (volume)
  • Revitalize Conditioner (volume)
  • The Champ Dry Shampoo
  • Refinish Hair Spray
  • Thermal Protect (heat protectant)
  • Dry Texture Spray
  • Restore Leave-In Conditioner
  • Rejuveniqe Oil

These eight products are the ones I’ve used in some capacity the entire time I’ve used Monat. There have been other products here there to just try out or use for very specific issues. For example I had a lot of color damage when I started using Monat. So for a period of about 4-6 months I used our Restructuring Line (shampoo and conditioner) along with Rejuvabeads (split end mender) until my hair was healthy enough to move on to less intense products.

My first 60 days using the products was definitely a period where small, subtle changes were happening that would then help the major results shine in a years time.

It’s always harder to see the results when you literally look at yourself day in and day out but they are there. Photos from just this month last year to now are INSANE. My hair is longer, thicker and overall so much better. I got my first hair cut since starting Monat in May of 2019 just a few days before quarantine was started and since then I’ve just let it be, minus the weekly bang trims I give myself because my hair grows like a week now. It’s still a bit of shock looking at my hair in July of last year when our team did our first get together to now because the difference is amazing.

The photo on the left was taken in July of 2019 at our first team bonding event while the photo on the right was taken during a family session in July of 2020. The proof is in the image folks.

If you’ve made it this far into the post you clearly know I love Monat. I do want to say though that just like any other product it’s not for everyone. Even I don’t love absolutely everything, but the things I do like I use and love. I’m always open and willing to talk about Monat with anyone that’s interested. I’ll give you my honest opinion, I’ll discuss in detail what you’re trying to achieve with your hair and be helpful in any way that I can be. Making money from this business isn’t at the top of my priorities, it’s nice, but it’s not why I do it. I do it for people like me that felt like they’d reached a dead end when it came to their hair. I do it for the friendships built between my teammates and my customers and simply because I love the products.
