MONAT Anti-Aging Haircare Review & Giveaway RV $99

MONAT Anti-Aging Haircare

All my life I’ve had fine, limp hair and I’ve used every thickening or volumizing hair product I could get my hands on. Although I’ve gone through products galore, I never really worried about my hair until I noticed how much my mom’s hair is thinning, and then I had an episode a couple years ago where I lost a lot of hair (sometimes it came out in clumps!) during a particularly stressful time of my life.

When I heard about MONAT’s anti-aging hair care products I did a bunch of research on what is different about them. Here’s a little bit about the science behind MONAT from their website.

REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive is MONAT’s invigorating proprietary blend of 11+ unique molecular ingredients, which includes vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene, omega-6 fatty acids, nutrients and amino acids, suitable for all skin and hair types. These ingredients have been proven to mimic the body’s own natural oils to reduce hair thinning, prevent oxidative stress, and add volume and shine. REJUVENIQE’s special properties energize and rehabilitate the scalp to visibly repair hair with instant and long-term Age Prevention benefits.

Capixyl™, powered with Red Clover Extract, a gentle emollient that reduces scalp inflammation, strengthens and thickens hair, and hydrates the scalp to stimulate natural, noticeable hair growth.

While skeptical, I still figured I had to give it a try so even though it’s a little on the expensive side, it’s $99 for the line of 3 products in the Volume System of Balance System lines, I bought some for myself. I was actually pleasantly surprised the first time that I used MONAT. In the past every single one of the volume shampoos that I’ve used has worked by roughing up the cuticle of my hair which leaves it feeling dry and a little rough. That’s how you get the illusion of volume so I was amazed that a rich, creamy shampoo with oil as one of the main ingredients would give my hair any body at all.

MONAT Volume System

I’ve used shampoos for shiny hair and some with argan oil before and they would leave my hair shinier, but very limp, and I was thrilled that the MONAT left my hair shiny and smooth while at the same time adding more lift and volume. My hair actually felt thicker the first time I used the MONAT Volume System, but the real benefit has come after using it for awhile. The before photos above are of me the day my MONAT came in the mail and after almost a month of using the products. The top pictures are right after blow drying my hair in the morning and the bottom ones are after I curl my hair to get ready for work. I’m super pleased with how much more body my hair has and how much fuller it looks and I can’t wait to see how it looks after continued use.

If you want to try the products yourself you can check them out at MONAT and you can even get a 15% discount and free shipping if you join the VIP Program. There is also a distributorship program available if you’re interested in getting even bigger discounts while earning some money.

I’m super excited to be able to giveaway a MONAT hair care system to one lucky reader! To enter to win just do any or all of the things listed in the Rafflecopter widget below. This giveaway will end at midnight on Sunday, May 31st.

I have very fine limp hair and I spend a lot of time and energy trying to plump it up so I was super excited to be trying out the new Herbal Essences Naked Volume collection. I’ve been using the products for a couple of weeks now and I’ve been very pleased with them. Usually I have to switch my shampoo and conditioner out every few days just to keep my hair from getting weighed down but I haven’t had to do that at all with these. The Naked Volume shampoo and conditionar have no additives like parabens that tend to make my hair limp after just a few days.

The volumizing souffle has a wonderful citrusy scent and has done a great job of plumping up my fine hair. I really like it and look forward to applying it to my wet hair before I blow it dry in the mornings.

I was a little bummed about the smaller size of the dry shampoo, but only because I like it so much that I want it to last awhile. It has the same great scent as the souffle and has been terrific for extending my do another day when I don’t have time to wash and style. Usually I would never consider doing that because my fine hair has even less body the next day, but this Herbal Essences Naked Volume dry shampoo has been working great for me so I don’t have to put my hair up in a ponytail on those emergency hair days.
