MONAT hair care products have helped me love my hair everyday. When I decided to start on the MONAT journey, I mostly wanted to support my homegirl. She's sold different make up products before, but I don't wear much make up. I just so happened to be in the market for a new hair care system. After she sent me samples, I saw growth almost immediately!
It might have been the blonde highlights, the stress or the loser ex-boyfriend, but my hair was breaking and barley growing. As a woman of color, I'm often told to try the "black" or "natural" brands, but those products are usually simply heavy in oil and moisture, so they weigh my hair down. What I was really looking for was a shampoo that would clean and strengthen my hair. I also needed moisture that would not be greasy. I also don't think I necessarily need different shampoo based on my skin color. As the world becomes more progressive, I've surely seen red heads with super frizzy, curly hair. I want beautiful, long hair - that's it!!! If we have that in common, we have enough in common. After giving MONAT a try, I've never been happier with the state of my hair!
The products are sold by systems which address your specific desires of length or volume, but the entire line is focused on giving you healthier hair. I'll post a few more blogs on the exact products I use, but here are some details on the overall company, as detailed on the MONAT website :
