Monat – An Honest Haircare Product Comparison

Hi everyone. I’m so excited because this post is covering one of my favorite topics – hair care products. I will share why I switched to MONAT hair products, go into the result details as well as the information that helped me with my decision. As many of my friends know, I love, love, love trying and buying new products. Yup. I’m that person that feeds into the marketing message that promises me youthful looking, silkier, shinier hair. When my hair looks and feels healthy, I’m on top of the world. I’ve tried almost every product that’s in market, from Aveda to Bumble and Bumble to Oribe to Rene Furterer, looking to achieve those promised results. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars investing into failed attempts. Today I can honestly say that I finally found the product line that will and has provided those results for me. Better – these products have gone through significant clinical trial testing – and the results are published (see below information). If you’re looking for an anti-aging (yes!), natural, gluten free, paraben free, non-toxic line of hair products that actually work better to give you the results you want, whether you have dry hair, oily hair, thinning hair, curly or kinky hair, baby fine hair… MONAT can work for you.

MONAT (pronounced “Mo-NATE” — which stands for “Modern Nature”) hair products are free of toxins found in most hair products. But that’s not all – MONAT actually works better than regular hair products. I’ve been using MONAT for a couple months now and I feel like I have the best hair I’ve ever had in my life.

Please note – this is a long blog. I wanted to cover all the points I feel you should know when it comes to making a decision regarding your products…consistency, effect, science, and price.

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO AVOID TOXIC HAIRCARE PRODUCTS

 Most haircare and beauty products are toxic. This is due to the fact that the beauty industry is not regulated like the food industry.

We know that we absorb toxins via the skin. Think about the nicotine patch — if that works by placing the patch on your skin which absorbs the chemical, why wouldn’t other products do the same thing? It turns out we do absorb these toxins through the pores of our skin, and studies show they cause all kinds of health problems from breast cancer to infertility to hormone disorders like hypothyroidism.

Ingredients like parabens, which are commonly found in beauty and hair care products, have been linked to breast cancer. Parabens have also been linked to infertility. Read more about the dangers of parabens.

Phthalates, also very commonly used in personal care products, are another cause for concern: “In the past few years, researchers have linked phthalates to asthma, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, breast cancer, obesity and type II diabetes, low IQ, neurodevelopmental issues, behavioral issues, autism spectrum disorders, altered reproductive development and male fertility issues.” (Source)

Phthalates are also one of the top endocrine disruptors. What that means is they screw up your hormones. I have so many readers and friends who are suffering from hormonal disorders. The last thing we need is to make our hormones worse by the shampoo we use!

MY BACKGROUND WITH NATURAL HAIRCARE PRODUCTS: AVEDA, MOROCCAN OIL & “NO POO”

 Due to my concerns about the health hazards of using conventional beauty products, I started using more natural hair products over a decade ago. I also pulled in friends from the healthcare industry to provide additional insights into my choices.

In this section, I explain why I chose the products I did, and why I ultimately switched to MONAT.

 MY EXPERIENCE WITH AVEDA

 I started using Aveda a little over 10 years ago. Aveda products smell great and are less toxic than conventional hair products… but they are not as pure as they claim.

There is a website run by the Environmental Working Group called Skin Deep. They score personal care products and ingredients. The lower the score, the less toxic. In full disclosure, I only learned about this website when we started our company EVVEMI. At EVVEMI, our mission is to bring transparency and quality to all things beauty. It’s now my “go to bible” for all beauty products!

Aveda Shampure shampoo is pretty good overall — it scores a 4 on Skin Deep. A score of 4 is not bad. It means Aveda shampoo is better than most shampoos. Compare, for example this shampoo made by Redken — it scores a 10 which is the worst you can score on Skin Deep.

That being said, Aveda Shaumpure still has a lot of ingredients that are toxic… for example, PEG and fragrance (parfum).

What’s wrong with PEG? “Perhaps most troubling is that PEG compounds are routinely contaminated with the carcinogen 1,4-dioxane. Surveys of cosmetic raw materials and finished products for the presence of the carcinogen 1,4-dioxane have been conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration since 1979. The carcinogen 1,4-dioxane was found in raw materials at levels up to 1,410 parts per million (ppm), and at levels up to 279 ppm in cosmetic finished products. Levels of 1,4-dioxane in excess of 85 ppm in children’s shampoos indicate that continued monitoring of raw materials and finished products is warranted, according to FDA researchers. In a 1991 study, 48 percent of the total cosmetic products investigated contained 1,4-dioxane at levels from 7.3 ppm to 85.9 ppm. Studies show that 1,4-dioxane readily penetrates human skin.” (Source)

Yikes, right? Read more about what’s wrong with PEG.OK, so what’s wrong with fragrance (parfum)? Plenty! Read why we should avoid fragrance (parfum).

Bottom line: Aveda’s not the worst and it is a big step up from most conventional hair care lines … but I knew I could do better…

MY EXPERIENCE WITH “NO POO”

 Next on my natural hair care journey, I tried the “no poo” method. Around 2007 when I started blogging about health, I was learning that shampoo is actually detergent and you shouldn’t be washing your hair with it. Detergent is not only toxic, but it dries out your hair and damages it.

“No Poo” is a “no shampoo” method in which you don’t use any shampoo or conditioner — you just use baking soda and vinegar and water. “No poo” was a disaster for me. And yes, I tried it for 3 months — I Moroccan Oilt through the “detox period” but it never “detoxed”. My hair was greasy and nasty.

I guess it’s because in Massachusetts, we have very hard water. They say “no poo” won’t work for people with hard water. But besides that, I never liked the process of putting baking soda and apple cider vinegar on my hair. It was ice cold in the shower and my hair smelled like salad. Yuck!

MY EXPERIENCE WITH MOROCCAN OIL

 I, like most of my friends, obtain information about my beauty products from hair salons. I moved to California 3 years ago and that’s when I first learned about Moroccan Oil. My hairstylist at that time said all of the women that come to his salon love their products. I decided to give it a try. I liked it a lot. Moroccan Oil Smoothing Shampoo smells fabulous, better than Aveda and most definitely better than smelling like a salad with No Poo — ha! I was told these products are considered one of the best brands for natural based, paraben free product lines. NOT SO! Although they have yet to be reviewed by EWG, their ingredients score an overall 5.

Moroccan Oil has won awards for “Best in Class” by magazine editors. Moroccan Oil has been a game changer in the hair industry by promoting the use of their miracle oil to nourish dry, damaged, frizzy hair. Their fragrance alone has set them apart from other serums and kept people loyal to the brand. But surprise surprise, this oil doesn’t actually nourish your hair. The biggest reason to steer clear from this brand is their obnoxious use of silicones. The first 4-6 ingredients are silicones, depending on which product you’re looking at. The problem here (and with so many other brands) is that silicone molecules are too large to penetrate the hair and end up layering on top of it over time. If there is a large amount of silicone formulated into a product it will prevent your dry, damaged, frizzy hair from actually getting any nourishment at all and can make those problems worse.

It’s also important to note that all of these brands contain methylisothiazolinone – an extremely common yet controversial preservative that is generally used in place of parabens. Along with being a well-established allergen, it is also suspected of causing immunotoxicity and skin toxicity.

I really loved Moroccan Oil and if I hadn’t found out about MONAT this winter, I would still be using it. Honestly, I never thought anything would make me switch from Moroccan Oil. Until I tried MONAT…

MY EXPERIENCE WITH MONAT

A friend sent me some samples of the MONAT shampoo and conditioners in the mail to try. I used the last dregs of what was left in the sample envelopes, squeezing out every last little bit. I’ve also gotten into the habit of extensive research on products and their ingredients when starting my company EVVEMI. From the research data and “craving” more of the Monat product – I knew I was hooked.

Why did I switch from Moroccan Oil to MONAT? Because not only is it even less toxic than Moroccan Oil or Aveda, it also just makes my hair look amazing. I’m getting such great results, I don’t want to use anything else.

I’ve only been using MONAT for about a month but I can already tell my hair looks better. My fiancé has told me on more than one occasion that my hair looks really good. And he never notices my hair — or maybe it just never looked good before. At least he is honest!

My hair feels thicker, softer, shinier, and I have a lot more body and volume than when I was using the other products. I also think my color (I have highlights) is less brassy. It’s also more manageable — it does what I want it to do with very little styling product.

MONAT IS ONE OF THE LEAST TOXIC HAIRCARE BRANDS IN MARKET

OK, so let’s talk about how non-toxic MONAT really is and how non-toxic the ingredients are…

Let’s start with what you WON’T find in MONAT…

 MONAT PRODUCTS DO NOT CONTAIN:

  • NO Parabens – Could be linked to chronic disorders.
  • NO Sulfates – Irritating to skin and scalp.
  • NO DEA/MEA – Can be irritating to skin and eyes and could be linked to chronic disorders.
  • NO Phthalates – Long-term exposure could be toxic.
  • NO PEG – Can be linked to chronic disorders.
  • NO Phenoxyethanol – Can be irritating to the eyes and skin.
  • NO Ethanol – Can be drying to the hair and cause frizz and damage.
  • NO Petrochemicals – Can coat the hair shaft causing moisture loss and suffocation of the shaft.
  • NO Glutens – Can cause allergic reactions to sensitive individuals.
  • NO Sodium Chloride and NO Harsh Salt System – Can build up in tissues and cause dryness and dehydration.
  • NO Harmful Colors – Can be toxic to skin and scalp and linked to chronic disorders.
  • NO Harmful Fragrances – Can be irritating and linked to chronic disease.

You can’t find MONAT on Skin Deep (it’s only been around for a couple years) but I searched all the ingredients in MONAT Renew Shampoo. Nothing in MONAT scores above a 4. I put this all into a spreadsheet. Click here to view the spreadsheet with all the links to the ingredients. In addition, I reviewed all the ingredients MONAT uses in their fragrances, and they score 3 or below.

Also, it should be noted that MONAT uses only R.O. (Reverse Osmosis) USP Pharmacopeia grade water as the base for all of the products. Sixty to eighty percent of most body care products are water (MONAT uses a lot less water — less than 40%).Using R.O. water assures that the products do not contain contaminants. These contaminants include heavy metals, fluoride, pesticides and other things found in our water today. Because MONAT uses R.O. water, they are able to use fewer preservatives to maintain the integrity of the products. R.O. water acts as a sponge. It contains empty water molecules looking for something to absorb. These molecules absorb the botanical extracts and vitamins that they add in the manufacturing process, which also provides consistency and superior texture.

WHAT MAKES MONAT SPECIAL

 OK, so it should be very clear… MONAT is less toxic than most other hair products, including natural hair care product lines like Moroccan Oil and Aveda.

But a less-toxic product is not enough of a reason to make me switch. I am not easily impressed and a less toxic product doesn’t do it for me. I have used other non-toxic hair care products in the past but didn’t stick with them because I didn’t get great results with my hair.

I could tell from the very first shampoo that MONAT made my hair look better than any other product I had ever tried. Now, a couple of months later, my hair just keeps looking better and feeling better. It feels fuller, has more volume, and feels softer and fluffier.

How do they do this? What is in MONAT that makes it different?

MONAT products contain 4 key ingredients that will make all the difference for your hair… these are the ingredients unique to MONAT and trust me, these ingredients will take your hair to the next level.

  1. REJUVENIQE™ OIL INTENSIVE

Rejuevniqe Oil Intensive – a blend of 11+ Ingredients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids, this oil is infused in all the products except the dry shampoo and the root lifting spray. This is designed to mimic the oils your body naturally produces. As you age, your body stops producing these oils, which is why your hair gets dryer and more brittle and breaks more easily (split ends) as you age. This is why they call MONAT an “anti-aging” hair care line.

Powered with Red Clover Extract, Capixyl is a gentle emollient that helps reduce scalp inflammation and strengthens the hair and same time thickens it. Capixyl also hydrates the scalp to stimulate noticeable hair growth.

MONAT REVIEWS: BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS & TESTIMONIALS

There are lots of photos online of amazing MONAT before and after testimonials. Here are just a few posted within the past year on Facebook in the MONAT Hair Testimonies group

 CURLY/KINKY HAIR

Thank you Zhonell for allowing me to service you and your precious baby girl! Product used was sponsored by MONAT Hydration System with a little bit of the Rejuveniqe oil when I was finished! She has NO RELAXER! She is all NATURAL! You guys are missing out on this wonderful product!! — Sequoya’s Artist of Faith Hair Studio

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Before Monat and After Monat… I have been using Monat for about two and a half months. The products I used in the after pic were renew shampoo, deep smoothing conditioner with 2 drops rejuveniqe, then I towel dried with a microfiber towel and it was still pretty damp. I applied 2 pumps leave in conditioner, curl cream, and mousse. Thank God Monat has tamed my frizz and thick hair. It’s so much more manageable now, and my curls are a lot more defined. Before, my curls only looked defined if my hair was still wet and then by the time it dried, it would look like this before pic!” — Emily

 

 

 

 

 

“So, from seeing other Curly Girls reviews… I was very hesitant on using Monat’s products on my curly hair. I use specific products to help with definition and taming the frizz! So I was unsure how I would have to change that when washing my hair with Monat. I used my curly hair routine and just incorporated how I normally wash my hair.

I used the Renew Shampoo, Replenish Masque with a few drops of the Rejuveniqe Oil. Then after washing, I left in the Restore Leave in Conditioner and added plenty of Cool Water and finger combed my hair. I continued on with my other hair products for styling… and finished off with the Rejuvabeads and the Rejuveniqe Oil. I wrapped my hair in a Cotton Tshirt (Plopping my curls instead of twisting them) to reduce frizz. I was soooo impressed that it had worked with my other products (sometimes the ingredients will clash and leave white lumps in my curls -they suck!).

My Second Wash photo, I only used the Replenish Masque to wash and condition my hair. Then I used my regular curly products and topped off my look with Rejuvabeads and Rejuveniqe Oil!!

You can tell my damaged ends now have curls, and all of my curls have tightened!! Looks and feels so much softer and healthier.” — Ashton

OILY HAIR

“Just brushed my 3 day hair. You heard me right!! Day 3. I haven’t done a thing to it (aside from brush it) for THREE DAYS! No additional product either. I’m BLOWN away. Just check out my before on the left.   I was a grease pit within 24 hours before Monat! I’m in lust!” — Sarah

 

HAIR LOSS / REGROWTH

“Let It Grow System – This is my progress after just 5 weeks using Monat, I still cannot believe the results. I tried Nioxin years ago, Rogaine a year ago, painful steroid injections in my scalp last year. Nothing worked there were no results at all, other than my bank account was smaller and my head hurt.” — Tammy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The other night I walked into a house party, and saw friends and acquaintances I hadn’t seen in over a month, they said: “HOLY $h*+! You have hair!” This is 30 days of using MONAT! I use the classic confidence system! Left is before, bottom right is before product, and top right is styled!” — James

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I can’t help but get choked up ya’ll… but this is only 4 1/2 months difference and 3 months of using Monat. All those doctors who told my little girl that she would most likely never have hair again….. well, they don’t know the power of Monat!” — Tara

 

 

 

 

“My personal results with Monat… I had brain surgery to remove a tumor in January, shortly after which I began losing hair at an alarming rate. I was left with a large bald spot behind my incision on the top of my head. For months I had literally no growth. It finally started growing back, but the growth was agonizingly slow. I was thankful for a successful surgery and for my life, but I was absolutely devastated about my hair. My surgeon wasn’t sure if it would ever be the same. Then I discovered Monat! I started using the Let it Grow system, Revitalize conditioner, and started taking the S3 supplement. I could not believe how much my hair grew in just two weeks! Now, a month later, what used to be a bald spot could almost pass for bangs and the rest of my hair is vibrant, smoother, and more manageable! I am so incredibly thankful for Monat!” — Samantha

GROWING LONG HAIR

 

“Okay so here’s my story…. I have been a hairstylist for over 7 years. I have struggled with my hair since high school always loved being blonde and could never trim enough to retain length or health. I have worn extensions for the past 5 years because I hated my hair and every product I used wouldn’t do as it said they honestly masked the problem not fix it.

So first pic is May 31st (I started Monat). 2nd pic July 31st. And last pic is today (October 18!!!!! I have not added blonde to my hair at all since my first pic….. the color just looks sooo healthy and honestly more blonde.

I used IRT system first. Now I use Renew shampoo and conditioner, masque occasionally, Oil and of course Rejuvabeads.

I now am confident in my hair I have not put my extensions in since JULY. I catch myself doing double takes on my hair and my clients and friends are noticing my hair transformation and have jumped on the Monat train with me!!! It’s truly changed my hair confidence.” — Brittany

 LACK OF VOLUME/THIN OR FINE HAIR

“I am seriously in love! I have never been able to get growth like this. I usually would be cutting my hair right about now after trying to grow it out all winter and it still now being long enough to put in a pony tail. Since Monat I have a pony tail, my hair holds a curl and I have volume like never before. Been using the Volume System and the thickening spray since the middle of March.” — Stacy

WHAT ABOUT THE COST OF MONAT COMPARED TO OTHER HAIRCARE PRODUCTS?

COST OF MOROCCAN OIL Smoothing Shampoo

$3.30 per ounce. I used to use about 6 pumps for my short (lob) hair (180 pumps per month washing every day) There are 160 pumps in 16 oz (around .33 per pump or $1.98 per wash)

I would go through about 180 pumps per month — which is 1-2 16-ounce bottles of Moroccan Oil Smoothing Shampoo per month.

Which works out to about $59 per month for Moroccan Oil.

COST OF AVEDA

I used to use at least a tablespoon of Aveda shampoo and a tablespoon of conditioner to wash and condition my hair. That’s about an ounce.

34 ounces of Aveda Shampure shampoo or conditioner for $44 – or $1.29 per ounce — $1.29 per wash.

Which works out to about $39 per month for Aveda.

 COST OF MONAT

 I have heard people say one bottle of MONAT shampoo and conditioner lasts them anywhere from 2-4 months; I’ve heard others say it lasts them 2-3 times longer than regular shampoo. This is because MONAT is super concentrated so you only need a tiny amount. They say to use about a dime to a quarter size for each wash (and to wash, rinse and repeat).

The shampoo is $35 retail, $30 VIP (auto-ship). One bottle lasts me 2 months…

That works out to— only $15 per month for MONAT!

 That’s a savings of 62-75%.

That said, with MONAT, I only have to wash my hair every other day. I have oily hair and normally have to wash daily… but with MONAT, I can get away with washing every other day. (Note: I think I will be able to stretch it to every 3 days when I start using the MONAT Dry Shampoo which I just ordered. I’ll update this post.)

Washing every other day works out to only $7.50 per month with MONAT!

MONAT is around 70% less expensive than using Moroccan Oil or Aveda.

WHICH MONAT SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER SYSTEM IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Ready to get started on your MONAT journey? There are a lot of different products so you need to choose which system to go with. There are 5 *basic* MONAT shampoo/conditioner systems. Pick one based on your specific needs and get started today.

1.) MONAT HYDRATION SYSTEM

This system is for people who have very dry and/or damaged hair or colored/chemically treated/processed hair that needs more moisture. Even though I have oily hair, I love this system for my hair because I have highlights and my hair needs more moisture. This system is also excellent for curly and kinky hair.

The MONAT Hydration System includes 3 products:

  1. Renew Shampoo – Renew Shampoo is formulated with the highest concentration of Rejuvenique oil Intensive, multiple gentle cleansers to remove different types of dirt & grime, and humectants & emollients to leave your strands hydrated, soft, supple, & brilliant with shine. This shampoo is salt & sulfate free, penetrates & moisturizes the scalp and boosts hair health and growth. It restores hair to a more youthful appearance and is perfectly safe for color-treated hair. ($35 retail / $30 VIP)
  2. Restore Leave-in Conditioner – I love this conditioner! It not only helps to lock in moisture but it it tames frizziness. The perfect companion for the Renew Shampoo. ($33 retail / $28 VIP)
  3. Replenish Masque – A repairing and hydrating masque ideal for damaged or parched strands, this formula infuses essential moisture and delivers vital nutrients to eliminate frizz and stop split ends in their tracks.

Products ordered separately: you pay $118 retail ($101 VIP)

You save $19 (16%) retail and $34 (29%) VIP

2.) MONAT VOLUME SYSTEM

This is what you want if you want thicker hair with more volume.

While I do have thick hair, it’s baby fine. The problem for me is because I have so much hair but they are fine strands, it gets heavy, limp, flat and weighted down the longer I grow it. Which is why I’ve usually kept my hair short even though I’ve always wanted to grow it long. With the MONAT Volume System, I feel like I can finally start to grow my hair long and not have it look flat and lifeless.

The MONAT Volume System includes 3 products:

  1. Revive Shampoo – This is what you want for bombshell volume. Revive is designed with fine limp, lifeless hair in mind and is on a mission to increase volume, bounce, vitality & brilliance. The different cleansers are layered and work in concert to leave your strands clean, hydrated, & pumped up. Revive helps increase hair health, density, and scalp health. ($35 retail / $30 VIP)
  2. Revitalize Conditioner – Is your conditioner weighing your hair down? MONAT’s Revitalize Conditioner will transform fine and limp hair into an envy-worthy coif. How, you ask? Rather than coating the surface of hair in heavy silicones and chemicals, which can make manes less-than-bouncy, the Revitalize formula penetrates deeply, nurturing the scalp and boosting natural growth. ($47 retail / $40 VIP)
  3. Reshape Root Lifter – Get a boost with Reshape Root Lifter, the perfect companion to the MONAT Revive Shampoo and Revitalize Conditioner. Whether your hair is thinning, or you just need a pick-me-up for 2nd day looks, this unique spray maximizes lift at the root. What’s more, it hydrates and thickens without the stickiness often associated with similar products. Just spritz on before your blow dry routine; Reshape plays well with heat! Best of all, it’s a UVA/UVB absorber, meaning color treated ladies can extend the time between salon visits. ($33 retail / $28 VIP)

Order the Volume System — only $99 retail ($84 VIP)

Products ordered separately: you pay $115 retail ($98 VIP)

You save $16 (14%) retail and $31 (27%) VIP

3.) MONAT MAGNIFY SYSTEM

If you don’t have any specific issues like dry hair or needing more volume, the Magnify System is good for most everyone. I really love the mousse and would recommend it for anyone.

The MONAT Magnify System includes 3 products:

  1. Renew Shampoo – Infused with REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive – our revolutionary oil treatment – this gentle, salt-and-sulfate free shampoo is gentle enough for even the weakest strands. Ultra-hydrating and moisturizing (two words very rarely associated with a shampoo), Renew ups hair’s brilliance factor, while keeping your locks strong. You’ll also notice a reduction in hair thinning due to increased follicle strength; that’s collagen at work, folks! And it’s totally safe for extensions and chemically processed hair. ($33 retail / $28 VIP)
  2. Revitalize Conditioner – Is your conditioner weighing your hair down? MONAT’s Revitalize Conditioner will transform fine and limp hair into an envy-worthy coif. How, you ask? Rather than coating the surface of hair in heavy silicones and chemicals, which can make your hair flat and lifeless, the Revitalize formula penetrates deeply, nurturing the scalp and boosting natural growth. ($47 retail / $40 VIP)
  3. Moxie Magnifying Mousse – Struggling with thin hair that won’t do what you want it to? Regular mousse adds volume, but unlike regular mousse, MONAT’s mousse will not give your hair that crunchy, stiff feeling. Infused with REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive, MONAT’s volumizing wonder also conditions your hair. Plus, Crodasorb™ protects your hair from harsh UV rays which damage your hair. ($29 retail / $25 VIP)

Order the MONAT Hydration System — only $99 retail ($84 VIP)

Products ordered separately: you pay $111 retail ($95 VIP)

You save $12 (11%) retail and $27 (24%) VIP

4.) MONAT LET IT GROW SYSTEM

This system is designed to help regrow hair faster than any of the other systems. Intense Repair Shampoo is for those who want really quick growth. All of the MONAT shampoos help to promote hair growth, but if you have thinning hair and/or bald spots, this is the product you want.

The MONAT Let It Grow System includes 2 products:

  1. Intense Repair Shampoo – This is a maximum strength growth & density product that works quickly to reduce scalp inflammation and DHT build up in the scalp, allowing for rapid repair of the factors limiting & reducing hair growth.

This is the shampoo for anyone who is balding or experiencing thinning or hair loss. Formulated with invigorating mint and growth promoting rosemary, this shampoo also has 2 times the amount of growth promoting capixyl over Renew & Revive. Capixyl is a tested and proven naturally based hair loss remedy derived from Red Clover. ($38 retail / $32 VIP)

  1. Intense Repair Treatment – Used in tandem with our Intense Repair Shampoo, this concentrated daily leave-in treatment stimulates the scalp while boosting the natural growth of fuller, thicker-looking hair.

Products ordered separately: you pay $103 retail ($87 VIP)

5.) MONAT CLASSIC CONFIDENCE SYSTEM

Similar to the Let It Grow system, this system is designed for men who are concerned about thinning hair and/or balding who want a simple routine (shampoo/conditioner in one plus the Intense Repair Treatment). This system is also great for blondes who highlight or color their hair — it is similar to a purple shampoo that reduces brassiness in blondes.

The MONAT Classic Confidence System includes 2 products:

  1. MONAT BLACK Shampoo + Conditioner – This is a maximum strength growth & density product that works quickly to reduce scalp inflammation and DHT build up in the scalp, allowing for rapid repair of the factors limiting & reducing hair growth.

Products ordered separately: you pay $103 retail ($87 VIP)

You save $4 (4%) retail and $19 (19%) VIP

6.) MONAT BLACK SYSTEM

The MONAT Black System is designed for men mainly — a complete system to help them grow and groom healthy hair. However, I personally love the BLACK shampoo and conditioner — it helps to tame the brassiness in blonde highlights. And I just ordered the shave cream to use on my legs.

  1. MONAT BLACK Shampoo + Conditioner – Black 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner is perfect for busy, on the go, short hair. The best cleansing & conditioning in a single bottle saves time and steps. I love this product for hair 4 inches or less in length, if you have longer hair, pair with a rinse out conditioner for the perfect solution of soft, supple, moisturized tresses.
