Over the last 8 years of my life, I have been my last priority. Being a mom is my finest accomplishment in life but man has it made me sort of forget that I am important too. My focus has been on my kids for so long that I realized one day that my identity was wrapped around them…which is ok while they’re still young but I seriously need to make sure I take care of me in the meantime so that when they’re grown I am not lost.

This year for me is going to be about self care. About taking the time each day to take care of me-even if it’s just making time for meditation and prayer alone, doing my makeup or taking a shower. Taking a shower is a big one for me, as it is for many moms. I LOVE taking a shower. I love feeling clean and the minutes alone with no interruptions (anymore) and I had been pretty content with the products I was using  but about 2 weeks ago I really upped my game.

A friend reached out to me about Monat hair products and told me that they would blow my mind. I’m a bit of a skeptic on products that people claim to be amazing but I love to try new things and support my friends so what did I have to lose?

Monat is short for Modern Natural, and they have perfected quality, naturally based hair care products that have changed lives.

I’ve had a few people mention Monat to me lately. It seems it’s taking the hair world by storm right now and the opinions all seem to be insanely positive. One friend told me that after one use I would understand. ONE USE!

My friend Lauren asked me a few questions about my hair and decided to send me Monat’s Volume System, which includes the Revive Shampoo, Revitalize Conditioner and the Reshape Root Lifter. She explained how to use it and then set me loose!

The Volume System from Monat

The first use blew my mind. I’m not exaggerating at all. Christmas morning my sister in law and I used my Monat products as we were taking family pictures that afternoon and we were both so impressed with the immediate results. I was worried when I was washing with the shampoo that maybe it wasn’t going to be as amazing as I had been told but the second I used the conditioner I knew that I was hooked. I have fairly thin hair that responds badly to most conditioners because it ends up looking greasy but I’m telling you I could slather this conditioner all over and not worry once that my hair would look oily or greasy. The root lifter gives me just the right amount of volume and my hair immediately felt lighter and smoother.

For two weeks I have been using Monat products. I tested my mom-timing and didn’t wash my hair for 4 days in there and while normally by day 3 my hair is only acceptable looking in a bun, on day 4 I could wear it down and styled and it still looks amazing! Another thing I have noticed in this small amount of time is that my hair holds curl much longer and I have little to no need for hair spray or additional product!

Here’s my 2 week progress:MONAT 2 Week Progress

Now, obviously my hair is styled in the second picture but beyond that, look at how straw-like my hair is in the first picture! I thought my hair was just fine before but yowza! My hair went from straw to shiny and healthy overnight with these products and I am never turning back.

Monat offers a wide variety of products for every hair type, man or woman. It’s been credited for hair regrowth (Hello post partum!) Monat hair regrowthand even has product that repairs split ends!

Some of the recommended favorites?
The Rejuvenique Oil: A combination of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids that works as a multi-tasking hair oil that will blow your mind. It has a multitude of uses other than hair, it’s great for your skin and has even helped cradle cap!
Rejuvabeads: This “1 minute miracle” selectively target and heal split ends and other damaged or stressed areas along the hair shaft, eliminating breakage and frizz, decreasing friction, increasing shine and help improve color.
The Hydration System: It is formulated with the highest concentration of the Rejuvenique oil and it restores hair to a more youthful appearance and is perfectly safe for color treated hair.
Black Shampoo/Conditioner: This 2 in 1 is perfect for busy, on the go, short hair. The best cleansing & conditioning in a single bottle saves time and steps!

I highly recommend trying Monat, I have been so impressed with the quality of the products and the results I’ve seen so far.
