It's a safe bet that if you follow me on Instagram, then you know I've been giving the Monat hair care system a try. My friend and fellow blogger Jenny Sanzo started using Monat about six months ago. Her results were amazing, and it made me curious. Jenny is also a rep for Monat, so when she approached me a few weeks ago, asking if I was interested in reviewing the product, I couldn't say no. I had watched Jenny over Facebook and Instagram show off this fabulous hair that she claimed was close to effortless. Could it be as easy as a shampoo and conditioner? I had to find out for myself.
First, when you use the Monat hair care system, your personal representative will ask you a lot of hair questions. Is your hair thick or thin, colored or not, wavy or straight? Do you have a lot of volume and body? Is your hair limp and damaged? All of these questions play into how your personal rep will decide on a system that is right for you. I was honest and told Jenny that for the most part my hair was limp and very thin since having kids. I've lost what seems like an entire head of hair, it's sad. Jenny told me that the best system would be the one for volume, and sent me shampoo, conditioner, and a root lifter.
Here is the key to the Monat system: when you wash your hair for the first time using it, you have to leave your shampoo on for approximately three minutes, and you have to leave your conditioner on for ten. I'll be honest, I just estimated it. I left the shampoo on while I exfoliated and the conditioner on while I shaved my legs. Even with my estimation my hair turned out amazing. I also didn't even use the root lifter the first time. Per Jenny's instructions, I used zero product at all. Did you hear that? ZERO PRODUCT! I also just used a hair dryer and a flat brush. I didn't flat iron my hair or anything. The results were startling to me, my hair looked and felt like I had walked out of a salon. It was soft, full, shiny, and had this amazing body. The true test, however, was going to be how long that body and shine was going to last in the one hundred plus temps in Fresno that day. What better way than to take selfies all day on Instagram.
So sure, I used it one day, but what happens when I go ahead an use it for a week? This is what happens...
It's time you had some magic hair too!
