Today, we’re talking hair.
The kind that may or may not grow from your head, that needs constant love and attention or else it could ruin your whole day.
Yes, that hair.
We all have our list of hair problems, and while mine might not be the same as yours, I want to talk about them. This is my first post on NSS about shampoo/conditioner and I’m pretty pumped to share this brand with you.
OBVIOUSLY I’m not just here to promote out every brand that just looks cool or pays me. Cuz lets be real, I’ve never been paid to post, FYI. I try to be super selective and only give you the bests. From my opinion, anyway.
Okay, on to Monat.
These. Products. Are. Bomb-digity. Like, let me just tell you, friends. If you have lost hope in your hair, a new beginning has arrived, and it is called hope. Aka: Monat.
First, let’s discuss my personal hair probs.
Numero Uno: OIL. My hair gets oily in about 24hrs, so that whole deal about not washing your hair for three days is almost non-existant for me. I rely on dry shampoo every day. EVERY DAY.
Two: TANGLES. You know, those ones on the back of your neck that show up after you sweat… I get those even when I’m not sweating. It’s miserable.
Three: GROWTH. It took me almost ten years to get my hair to the length it is now. I tried hair growth pills, vitamins, shampoos, etc. Nothing was working for me, except for some It Works hair growing pills that I tried for a couple of months, which I’ll post on in the future.
I have other general issues with my hair, like fly aways and maintaining straightness/curls, but I’m not sweating the small problems for this post. (lol, get it?)
SO, I’ve been using Monat for a month now, but after the first use I already noticed a difference. I use the Magnify Treatment System, which is meant to add volume. The first thing I noticed was how manageable my hair was. It was like all the little pieces had a group meeting to start being more aligned and orderly. My hair felt softer, smoother and thicker. I’m talking feather soft, people. I was rubbing it on my boyfriend’s face for the first three days, I was so proud.
What’s cool to me, is that all the ingredients in Monat’s products are botanical-based and won’t strip your hair of any of the good stuff. There’s no parabens, sulfates or harsh chemicals like most products. The harshness of hair products is what made it hard for me to grow my hair long. So, I spent years finding the right products that worked well for me and were top quality at decent prices.
I want to take a hot sec to talk about the blow out cream, because it’s been my fav out of the five products I have. Not only does it help straighten your hair while you blow dry it, but, bonus, it’s also a heat protectant. Which means you’re using less products to do all the hair things. It’s a super creamy consistency but doesn’t make my hair greasy or chunky.
As for the growth, I haven’t had the product long enough to notice anything. But from what I’ve heard, it’s supposed to work really well. I’m offering these products out to my friends with thin hair or that may be losing a ton of hair for no apparent reason. They basically nourish your hair back to health.
