Keeping My Hair Healthy and Looking Good: A Review of Monat Haircare Products

I have a pretty lazy approach to my hair. I get it cut about every nine months. I often wash my hair at night to avoid blow drying. In the morning, if I feel up to it, I use a flatiron. Or, I just throw my hair in a ponytail. I know my hair could look better, but I’m not willing to invest the time.

When given given the opportunity to review some Monat haircare products, I figured it was my chance to step it up! With a little attention, maybe I could get my hair looking good!

When my samples arrived, the packing got my excited. It was like opening a gift!

Monat haircare products.

Inside, was tons of loot!

This is a “Before” photo of my hair. It looks fine, right? Just not a lot of body to it.

Renew Shampoo and Conditioner by Monat

The first product I tried out was the Renew shampoo and conditioner. I was intrigued because the packaging said it would increase density, strength and manageability. I don’t know if it gave my hair a ton more volume, but it did leave it really soft and light!

Revitalize Conditioner by Monat

Next I tried the Revitalize conditioner by Monat. It promised, and delivered, volume. And I liked that I could just leave it in while doing my regular shower routine and then rinse it out, versus leaving it in for an extended period of time. The results? I was amazed. I’m not used to a conditioner doing much besides making it easier for me to get a comb through my hair. This, combined with my regular daily shampoo, gave my hair a ton more volume!

Replenish Products by Monat

I definitely stalled on trying out the products that took more time. I cannot reiterate enough how little time I am willing to invest in my hair. The Replenish products by Monat sounded good, though. Brilliance, strength and vitality. Those aren’t words I typically associate with my hair, but they sound great! The conditioning masque was slightly more time intensive, as I had to leave it in long enough to do it’s thing. Afterwards, my hair felt great. I’ve gotten conditioning treatments at salons before and this was equally as good if not better, and I did it right at home.

Rejuvenique Oil Intensive

The final product I tried was Rejuvenique oil intensive. I have no after pictures because those can’t really convey feeling of how soft it made my hair. The downside to my typically lazy hair routine is that I often have dry, split ends. Rejuvenique didn’t completely undo the damage, but pretty darn close!

The Verdict

It can be weird when I review a product on here. I want to be honest in my review and only praise products I feel are worth it.The Monat hair care systems were easy to review because I enjoyed using all of them. The Rejuvenique oil intensive was a definite winner, despite taking the longest to do and going against my low-maintenance style. I also loved the Revitalize conditioner because it worked so well with my existing shampoo. It’s changed how I think about conditioner.

If you’re interested in giving your hair a makeover, I’d recommend looking at the Monat line of products. It’s worth treating yourself, and your hair, to a little luxury!

I received samples of Monat haircare products to try and review for free. All opinions are my own.

    1. I used some samples but did not continue using. Because of some skin sensitivities, I need to use dye-free, perfume-free shampoo conditioner for my regular hair products. It’s a pain in the butt!

        1. I’ve start getting eczema on my face that seems to be tied in some way to any products touch my hair, hands, face, etc. It means I’ve dropped any products that sound remotely fun and use only dye-free, scent-free, everything-free products. It’s made shopping a real hoot.

    1. Which products do you recommend for black or biracial hair? My hair type is wavy and I have to use a flat iron to straighten it

  1. I tried this product and it did not work for my Hair! The company has given me the run around about getting a refund. Now the company is saying that I had to have an account in order to get a refund. I purchased the products from a presentation of the company at my stylist salon. The representative said it was money back guarantee and no questions asked and that is not true, but she left out the fact it was only 30 days period. I don’t recommend this products. False representation.

    1. I am a Monat rep and I want to apologize to you for what you went through! This makes me disappointed that someone misrepresented this product and company. The 30 day money back guarantee is absolutely no questions asked, you do not need an account to get your money back. Unfortunately, what happened in your case was you purchased from a presenter, not direct through the company, and if a presenter carries their own stock it is up to them to guarentee their customers 30 days, that presenter should have given you your money back. So no fault to the actual company ;-(
      I also hope that she gave you some tips on the products, and explained how using chemical free can be much different than other shampoos. Also, that maybe the line she sold you was not the one for you! It is all about finding what works for your customers 🙂
      Its okay that it did not work for your hair! But the customer service you were given is a shame!!
      Take Care <3

  2. I love Monat and what it has done for my hair and for me financially!! If you could use some extra cash and healthy hair then contact me! I would love to send you some samples and answer any questions you have about Monat and the business side of it!!

    1. I really want to try this product. My hair is so thin and fine…it’s like frog fur! My sister is using this, and said it is awesome, but I really want to try before I buy. Can you send me some samples?

    1. Sorry…correction!!!!!

      You did not purchase through a presenters website! You bought personal stock. If you go to a presenters site and order, the company takes care of the 30 day. If you buy their personal stock they need to take care of that 🙂

  5. Hey, how do u try monat to see if it works for my hair? It’s very expensive and before I make the investment I just want to make sure the product works for my hair. 🙂

  6. I would love to try Monet. I’m suffering from hair loss and dry itchy scalp and I’m only 27 years old. The oil seems like something I need in my life. Would love to get some samples before spending 100.00. To see if it works for me. Fingers crossed!

      1. Hi Nicole,
        May I also request some samples of monat!? I have dry/brittle damaged hair and I would really like to see if it truly will make a difference!? Thanks so much in advance… My email is lil_girl009@yahoo.com

      2. Hello Nicole,

        I have thinning hair from Thyroid removal. You think this product is for me? Someone said that the mens shampoo works better? Could you send me some samples? My address is Marion Sombke 70 Westfield Loop, Little Rock, AR 72210 my email is marion@sirspeedylr.com

        Thank you-Marion

        1. all products contain active ingredients to help with hair regrowth! I can’t guarantee that the products will work as I’m not a doctor and Monat does not dispense medical advice. However many people have seen amazing results with Monat products! All products do come with a 30 day money back guarantee and while most people see results within the first few weeks clinical trials are based on 90 days. A sample will not produce any noticeable hair regrowth effects as Monat is a treatment system that takes time it is not an overnight remedy. I would strongly recommend you try the classic confidence system and give the products. Chance to work their magic knowing you are covered by a 30 day money back guarantee!

  7. Hi I was wanting to get some samples of the shampoo, conditioner, masque, and rejuvenating oil please.I have thin and greasy hair.Thanks.

    1. Hi Julie!

      It sounds like you are wanting to try the balance line! That’s the line I use as well! It’s amazing! I can send you samples but please be aware that a sample is just that. A sample! While they are great to get a feel for the product they won’t solve your hair concerns overnight! Our products are designed to work as treatment systems and they take time to work 🙂 most people do notice a difference after one wash but you may or may not depending on your hair. Everyone’s hair is different! All of our products are infused with the Rejuvinique oil, which is liquid gold and has over a 100 uses but I definitely wouldn’t recommend starting out with it if your hair is currently greasy. (Sounds like your hair is over producing oil, how often do you wash it? Over washing can cause an excess in natural oils and result in your hair feeling greasy!)

      Please check out my website. http://www.yourbeautiful.mymonat.com ID 196745 ALL products come with a 30 day money back guarantee! A system should last 3-6 months! If you have any questions please contact me through the website 😊

      I look forward to helping you on your journey to healthy hair!

      Have a great day

  8. Can I get samples? I have fine wavy/curly hair that is color treated. It has also thinned over the last few years. What system do I need to try/buy?

    Thanks, Denise

    1. Hello Denise! I am currently out of samples. I would however recommend the balance line and the oil if you were able to purchase it. Monat does offer a 30 day money back guarantee if that helps any. My website is nmchavez.mymonat.com if you would like to look around and email me with any questions nchavez1116@gmail.com.
      Thanks!

    1. Hi Erminia,
      My name is Darlene Yurkowski and I am an independent distributor for Monat. My website is (www.yourbeautiful.mymonat.com ID 196745) I would be happy to send you some samples if you email me with your address. However, a sample is just that a sample. Our products are treatment systems and just like your hair wasn’t damaged with one wash, you hair concerns won’t be solved with one wash. The systems take time to work. (Most people notice a difference after one wash and results in 90 days) I always recommend people try the balance system to start as this system will actually help balance the pH of your hair and scalp as well as detox any chemical buildup from your hair.its also super moisturizing which helps with breakage! All products are infused with our patented Rejuvinique oil blend and will stimulate hair growth over time when used as a system! 😊 A full system should last 3-6 months as products are highly concentrated, they also come with a 30 day money back guarantee 😊 So you really have nothing to loose! 💗

      Please don’t hesitate to contact me for more information or to request those samples!

      Have a great day! I look forward to hearing from you.

    3. Sample isn’t going to grow your hair sadly. Most people notice results in the first month of use but it can take 3 months!! That’s what clinical studies are based on 🙂

      I would suggest ordering a system! The let it grow system has yielded amazing results for people in 30 days!! And with Monats 30 day money back guarantee (even if the bottle is empty, which it won’t be cuz you really don’t need much!) you have nothing to loose!! 💖 I would recommend adding the leave in conditioner though… I find the 2&1 can be a little drying 😊💖

    1. Hi Nancy!!

      For fine limp hair out volume system is amazing! One of my girlfriends actually had the same issue until she started using Monat. I would be happy to send you her before and afters using the volume system as well as some samples!

      Keep in mind while a sample is great to get a feel for the product. The smell/texture. A sample won’t solve your hair concerns overnight 😉 Our products are designed as treatment systems and it takes time for them to work.

      All products are infused with Rejuvinique and will help improve the health of your hair as well as stimulate new growth over time. Most people notice a difference in their hair after the first wash and new growth in the first few weeks however it can take up to 90 days before a real difference is noticed. A full system should easily last 3 months! And All products come with a 30 day money back guarantee (even if the bottle is empty!)

      Please check out my website http://www.yourbeautiful.mymonat.com ID 196745 for more information. You are also welcome to contact me directly with any questions and to request samples.

      I look forward to hearing from you and helping you on your journey to great hair!

  9. I am so happy with my hair since I have been using Monat in October of 2016. At first I was skeptical of all the benefits people were claiming but with hopes to restore my damaged hair I tried some samples from a Market Partner (who happened to be a good friend) and never looked back since. I tried the Balance Line with Renew Shampoo, restore leave in conditioner and Rejuvenique Oil.
    At first I did not get lather in the first few weeks due to all the chemicals that were in my hair from dying and using harmful product. Now after 4 months I am getting loads of lather and loving how it makes my hair feel after each wash!

    In the few months I have been using Monat, my hair has become less brittle, grown in spots where I had once had little to no hair in patches (I used the S3 Pills and the intense growth repair spray), and I have added shine and volume which came mostly from the balance system which added a ton of moisture to my dry and brittle hair. I was so happy with my results that I couldn’t help but tell everyone about it and rave about how it changed my hair! People started noticing my hair and commenting on how “healthy” it looked… this was something I had been trying to achieve for years, and to grow my hair even an inch or two was a goal of mine. Other products never changed my hair as much as Monat did, and I spent hundreds of dollars trying to find something that would bring my hair back to its youthful state.

    I am an MP with Monat and I love my job selling products that truly work 🙂 If anyone would like more information or to test the product please don’t hesitate to visit my website:
