Because your hair shouldn’t be just good when it could be GREAT.
Being a hairstylist for almost 7 years, I am constantly asked what are the “best” styling products out there to use on a regular basis. I attended an amazing cosmetology school and learned from some of the best educators and took pride in the culture behind the company. It wasn’t until I got out of the salon and began working for myself that I started playing with other brands and products. I very quickly had a wide spread amount of products but they all came from different companies. I couldn’t commit to 1 line because there was always something that worked better from a different company. All of that craziness ended the day I found Monat, or I guess the day Monat found me.
So why do I keep talking about Monat?
One day, scrolling on Facebook, my friend Ali posted about how she just started a new business with a hair care line. Ali is a dental hygienist, not a hairstylist, without major experience in hair care, so naturally I didn’t give it a second thought and kept scrolling. But she continued to post results and give a little insight into how much money she was making. And not just any results, I witnessed
- her hair transform from dull to vibrant,
- her brother-in-law’s receding hair line grow back in, and
- her daughters’ unruly, tangled hair smooth out to angelic, tangle-free locks.
I said, “Take my money.” Fast forward 3 months and I’m where she was at, doing what I said I would do and continually blowing myself away. My absolute favorite part about this decision is helping people bring their confidence back. It’s like I can keep being a hair stylist without being behind the chair!
A little backstory
Before becoming a part of the company, I was constantly battling myself about wanting to stop working and focus more energy and time into my family. About a year ago, my father was diagnosed with a very rare form of stage 3 prostate cancer, one that only affects 2% of prostate cancer patients. It has been a crazy rollercoaster of a year with highs and lows but it has opened my eyes to how precious and short life is. Do I want to be able to help support my family so we can live the life of our dreams? Of course. But I don’t want to spend many hours of each day on my feet with increased pain in my hands, feet, and lower back (hairstylists, you know what I mean). Thankfully, my husband has been extremely supportive of my decision and insanely proud of my success so far. I am so thankful for all of his help- helping me set up spreadsheets and a contact list that I would have had a hard time doing myself. With each paycheck I make, we take half and put it towards our silly 20-somethings debt that’s been part of our family since we got married. Once we pay it off, I would love to start putting that income towards our children’s future and our dream vacations! Writing this out is bringing tears of joy! I can’t express enough how thankful I am for joining this company.
Enough about me, who is Monat?
Monat stands for Modern-Nature. Monat is an anti-aging, botanically based hair care company that DOES NOT LIE! It does what it says it’s going to do which is huge. It’s very hard to find a hair product that actually does what it’s supposed to do, and continues to do so while giving you the best crown of hair you’ve ever worn.
The main selling point is hair regrowth and reduction of hair loss. I’m constantly finding new baby hairs growing in and getting longer and stronger. Sarah even said her hairdresser asked if her hair was thicker, and that was only after a couple of weeks of use! Aside from hair growth, we pride ourselves in our “no’s”. In all of our products, you won’t find any phthalates, PEG, DEA/MEA, sulfates, parabens, harsh salt systems, harmful colors, or harmful fragrances. Um hello heaven! My color will forever be protected and my damage restored! I’ve hit the jackpot!
