Getting gorgeous with Monat Hair Care!

Monat Hair Care

I have always believed that great skin and great hair make for a great day. It is worth the time to look for the products that truly work for your body and your hair – YOU ARE WORTH IT!! Feeling good about yourself is empowering, and ultimately that’s what led me into blogging. The great hair I am experiencing while testing Monat Hair Care products reminds me of this – I was blessed with nice hair to begin with, but excellent products make a difference and turn my good hair into great hair which truly ups my confidence.

I have been using my Monat products for about 2 months now. I have been testing the Renew Shampoo ($35/$30), Smoothing Deep Conditioner ($47/$40), and The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo ($34/$29).

Monat Renew Shampoo

The Renew Shampoo is a very gentle shampoo that doesn’t have any salt or sulfates. It still gently foams, but it doesn’t strip color and it’s gentle enough to use on extensions. It really works on the scalp and actually promotes hair growth. Renew Shampoo makes hair stronger, thicker, and more hydrated, which means more shine and bounce. An interesting note – Monat directs you to wash twice. I always thought that this direction was included on shampoo bottles in order to encourage sales because you used more product, but with Renew Shampoo you don’t need much to begin with. The first shampoo removes any environmental buildup and the second shampoo lets your hair get the full benefits of the product. I am amazed at the difference in terms of how much hair I lose – I can tell just by how much less hair is in the shower drain!

Monat Smoothing Deep Conditioner

I follow my shampoo with the Smoothing Deep Conditioner. The Smoothing Deep Conditioner is a very thick condition that is excellent for amping up the shine and toning down the frizz. I find it works best if I get as much moisture out of my hair as possible after shampooing before applying the conditioner. Even though this conditioner is super thick, it doesn’t weigh down my fine hair at all. My hair is lovely – soft, floaty, without any split ends or static, even in the winter dry indoor heat. It also helps protect hair from sun damage. I can’t believe the body and how well my hair holds a curl.

Monat The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo

Monat The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo

Another product I really recommend is The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo. This is one of the best dry shampoos I’ve ever used and wow, I have tried so many I can’t even begin to count! I live on dry shampoo. I work out five days a week and while I shower every day (I know, give me a medal, right?) no way am I going to take the time to wash my super long hair and style it every day. So I am best buddies with dry shampoo. But dry shampoo can be too wet, or too white, or too fragrant. The Champ is accurately named though – it’s a winner. The perfect absorbing ingredient is agrana rice starch, which banishes anything oily or greasy without being too wet or too white. I get a solid five days of great hair with my Monat hair care trio – it’s incredible!

So far, so GREAT with Monat for me. I am looking forward to the next month because I know it will only be getting better. There are also some very interesting styling products that I would love to try.  Head on over to the Monat website to take a look – there are incredible before and after photos from customers, along with the full product line. What looks interesting to you?  – Lisa

  1. I have actually been very curious about these products. So thank you for the review. I have also heard that your hair actually goes through a detox when you first start using it I am interested in hearing about how that was for you and how long did it last?

  2. Great photo of you and your daughter, Lisa, and your hair looks fabulous using Monat!

  3. Your hair looks amazing! This stuff sound great – I hadn’t heard of this brand before. I am a hair product lover. 🙂 I will have to look into this.

    Your hair looks amazing in that photo! Sounds like the products worked really well for you.

  8. You hair looks gorgeous! I heard about this product line but haven’t tried it yet

  9. Sounds great, especially since it is sulfate free. I might give it a try!

  10. I have only tried their hair oil, which I really liked a lot, and these sound great as well.

  11. I haven’t tried any dry shampoos that I’ve liked much. Perhaps I should try that one.

  12. I tried Monat Rejuveniqe oil and really liked it!

  13. You know, I heard there might be a ‘detox’ period too which I figured I would have since I am a product junkie, but it just didn’t happen for me. My hair went from pretty good to pretty great very quickly. No detox here, I am happy to report!!

  14. I would love to do a consult for anyone interested. I did that for Lisa and Marcia too! Please shoot me an email and I can send you a questionnaire…it takes less than a minute. I can then recommend three products to get you started too! [email protected] (Lisa links to my website in her blog). Thanks!

  15. This looks like a great system. I’m pretty brand loyal, but I love hearing about new haircare.

  16. Great pic. Hair looks healthy & chic. Should give it a try the mentioned product I suppose

  17. Ehmkay nails says:

    Love the idea of this product! I would try!

  18. I would love hair like yours. I’ve been growing it for the first time I haven’t caved and chopped it off to a pixie. I’d love to take good care of my hair and try these wonderful hair care products. My hair would love it.

  19. I want to look into this because lately I feel like I’m losing way more hair than is expected.

  20. Yvette Price says:

    I currently use Batiste dry shampoo and I get white streaks, so I tend to use it at night and let the powder fall out overnight. I am going to look into the Champ, sounds like I won’t have to do the overnight thing with it.

  21. I haven’t heard of this brand before. But it looks like it’s doing amazing things for your hair!

  22. I have been intrigued with Monat hair care products for some time now. My hair has been thinning and I would like to see how well their products work.
