Monat is a naturally-based hair care line that is meant to restore your tresses. It is a PROCESS- not an event, but the more I use it- the more I want to. I still have damage I'm dealing with but the difference is undeniable. I've tried almost every product they have- and I'll round up my favorites- though it's no easy task. I find that my hair needs change the same way my skin needs do- weather, how much water I'm drinking, environmental factors too. I tend to switch my routine up pretty often- but these are staples I always come back to.
REVIVE SHAMPOO - great as a cleansing shampoo that adds volume.
RENEW SHAMPOO- restores hair with moisture
INTENSE REPAIR CONDITIONER- this is a great everyday conditioner that helps with the tangles and the knots that come along with Monat in the beginning.
REPLENISH MASQUE- far and wide my favorite deep conditioner. This should only be used every 4-5 WASHES- not days- WASHES. It will last forever!
HEAT PROTECTOR- a non-negotiable. Monat cleanses hair of build up making it more fragile when using heat- protect it and you're good to go!
REJUVENIQUE OIL- this is the holy grail. Doing weekly oil treatments- will change the condition of hair like no other- and on days when I do an oil treatment- I can go longer between washes.
A: This is when your hair adjusts to the new products Monat removes build up so your hair needs a bit of time to do that. During that time, my hair knotty when wet and sometimes didn't hold a curl. It wasn't anything major. Everyone is different, but the detox was no worse than a bad hair day.
Q: How often do you wash your hair?
A: Each time you wash your hair you wash TWICE. You can use the shampoo or use a combination of two different formulas. Over time I had to wash it less times per week, but in the beginning it was every other day. I loved it though because I knew I was helping my hair with every wash.
Q: What if I wash my hair every day?
A: Then I commend you. (but this is totally fine so far as Monat goes)
Q: Can I still dye my hair?
A: Monat helps keep your color going longer because it's so gentle. That said- it is recommended that you use Monat for one month before doing any color service. After the month mark you are good to go!
Q: You said you only use Monat, what about when you go to the salon?
A: I am THAT much of a nut that I bring my own products. Last time I washed my own hair at home and then made her just wet it down again with a spray bottle. Nothing has touched my hair other than Monat products for over a year now.
