Are you ready for your hair yet and wondered which products would be best for you? Have you wondered if it does what you’ve seen around town or on social media?
O'girl, does it ever! Lets's dive into the who, what and when of this luxury haircare brand.
First things first, let’s be clear. I do sell Monat. I want you to know that upfront. Initially, I was a skeptic, I didn't even buy my first bottle.. it was given to me! Yep, I'm that girl!
And then when I see what it did for my hair, which I will describe a little later on, I knew I was all in and share it with others. And they have loved it, too.
Let me say this! If someone has asked you about this brand and given you samples, please follow up with them about buying.
These are general guidelines, not specifically put out by the company, and should be used as such.
If you wish for me to consult about your hair type specifically, please take this quiz and then we can chat more about your hair after. I want to make sure you are starting out right and not just getting something because it was recommended by someone.
In saying that I sell it, which means I will make a small commission, at no extra cost to you, should you make a purchase using my links. You can read my disclosure policy at the bottom of this page. Thank you!
How to Buy Monat
You can get Monat directly from my website, or click here.
Again, if you have already consulted with a Monat rep, please follow up with them; these are my order links. You can also read This Or That, VIP or Market Partner to learn more about options to purchase.
Be aware that although other sites may have Monat products for sale, they are not officially licensed to sell and are improper and against Monat usage guidelines.
If you do not get it from a Monat website, you cannot be guaranteed that the product you receive is actually an un-expired Monat product.
For instance, you may get an inferior product in a Monat bottle (the person used the Monat and then filled the bottle with a cheaper shampoo), which has happened. You’ve been warned…Sorry, I just can't stand behind something that was bought from another source.
Which Monat is Best for Fine, Limp (and Thinning) Hair
Now this is something special. The recommended shampoo for this type of hair is the Revive Shampoo.
It has been shown to plump up the hair strand 3 times its normal volume, but remember, Monat doesn’t use the typical heavy buildup products that other brands do! How do they do it? Magic…?
The Revitalize Conditioner is the go-to for this type of hair, as it is very light-weight and won’t dull the hair and make it droopy.
Now, if you have thinning hair that is fine and limp, this is generally my recommendation. You could use the Intense Repair Conditioner if your hair is dry.
This is my go-to with the Black 2-N-1 as my first wash!
Monat for Curly Hair
In general, curly-haired girls generally require additional moisture for their beautiful curls. This is achieved through use of the Renew Shampoo.
If you have longer hair, one of the best conditioners is the Revitalize Conditioner.
You can also use the Restore Leave-In Conditioner as a leave-in or wash out conditioner.
If you depend on a mousse to control those locks, we do have a Moxie Magnifying Mousse.
You can get a “system” (combo) of the previously recommended Renew Shampoo, Revitalize Conditioner, and Moxie Mousse for cheaper than you would get each one individually in the Magnify System.
You could also opt for the Hydration System, which has really great hydration products, but please see the above info about the conditioners and pick which is right for you.
You can add any additional products at any time.
The one product that everyone should have is the Rejuveniqe Oil.
It is such a beautiful and lightweight oil, made to mimic your own body’s naturally produced oils, it can be used on the hair, skin, and for many other uses.
Best Monat Products for Severely Dry, Damaged Hair
If your hair is in really sad shape, chances are that any of the above recommendations, based on your hair type, will improve it greatly.
While most people experience damage in the bleaching process, no two heads of hair are alike and there are many ways we can destroy our hair! The Renew Shampoo is our first hydrating shampoo and it a fabulous one!
But if your hair is severely dry, you can use the Advanced Hydrating Hair Care Collection
If your hair is severely damaged, you can use the Restructuring Hair Care Collection. It is “designed to take a 360 approach to reverse the appearance of hair damage, correcting the entire hair fiber, inside and out.”1
Both of the above are beloved, revolutionary products.
Men's’ & Women’s Short Hair with Monat
Now, you have a few options here. You can use anything recommended above or below. But generally, short hair doesn’t require a lot of maintenance, and the people who keep short hair like to keep products to a minimum.
This is great, where the Black 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner comes in. It has cleansing and clarifying properties of shampoo, with that famous Monat Rejuveniqe Oil and conditioning that keeps hair so soft and shiny.
It does smell minty, (heavenly) if that makes a difference. Most of our products do have a slight smell. While that is generally enjoyed by customers, you should request samples (if available, as some are not) if that is a concern for you.
Colored Hair with Monat
Did you know that Monat can help you sustain your hair color longer? And make those platinum blondes less brassy, blondes sassier, and browns more…deep!
Platinum babes should use the Perfectly Platinum to keep out those brassy tones and get your hair to that true, icy color you love.
Blondes will want the Brilliant Blonde to keep that pure, deep blonde.
Brunettes love the Beautiful Brunette to get those deep, rich browns and reds that really set a brunette apart with mystery and beauty.
Since Monat (as most other brands also) recommends that you shampoo twice (get general usage directions here), you can use this for one shampoo and your favorite other Monat shampoo that supports your hair goals, and then follow up with your favorite Monat conditioner.
Monat for Thinning Hair
I have probably, over my time with Monat, gotten most interest inquires about whether Monat can grow hair back.
It has some key proprietary ingredient blends that help sustain hair growth and retention for many people.
However, I do not typically recommend the specific hair growth shampoo and conditioners unless people have very very significant hair loss.
And, let’s be honest. When you’re a woman who is losing hair and seeing thinning spots, however small, it feels very very very very very significant.
Many of our products will help your hair grow. Your rep should know which ones contain hair growth-enhancing ingredients.
It’s not always specifically for that, but it does help to have a fuller, more beautiful head of hair while still getting specific products for your hair type.
As a rep, I typically ask for pictures, what your concerns are, and other factors to determine your needs in this area.
Therefore, I am not going to specifically recommend one product for this.
Sorry to disappoint you, but because of the way these products work, I would rather be in close contact with you about your progress.
Please see our styling products here.
They can be used for the same purposes as other brands, but are also non-toxic and won’t provide buildup on your hair.
One that is different is The Champ Dry Shampoo. It uses a special ingredient that acts differently than your typical dry shampoo so that it won’t damage your hair as is grows out.
