No longer use Monat!

I had beautiful gray hair when I started using Monat. After 8 months my hair was an awful rusty, blond gray and it was beginning to look fried.

I talked to the woman I bought it from and she suggested I try the intense repair system. I did and it only got worse! Several times both of us tried to get answers from customer service but nothing was forthcoming. I might add that getting through to customer service was painful.

I finally quit using Monat and am using a “purple” shampoo to try to get the color back. It is coming slowly. I really wanted Monat to know what happened with my hair so I waited on hold for 90 minutes before I actually talked to someone. Needless to say I am so done.

    If I want to pay money for a fancy hair product that works, I go to LUSH. Not only do they know about their products, but if you hate it, you get to return it.

    • It basically comes down to product preferences right? Some people buy more expensive products and like the results. Some people buy dollar store shampoos and are satisfied with the results.

      All shampoos basicially have the same base ingredients. These ingredients ‘coat’ hair which gives the results people are looking for.

      But to make outlandish claims or using shampoo to Detox? Its bull. I’ve heard stylists use the term ‘ clarify hair’. But that just means to remove hair product from each hair shaft, back to a normal state.

      Exactly. And not to mention the hundreds of DIY treatments out there. For instance,if ive been using to many products,and my shampoo doesnt seem to get the residules, i soak and rinse my hair with white vinegar. Then shampoo and condition. Works AMAZING!

      Ok now..the gift boxes are a bit different.
      You can bring back the gift box. I think its exchange only.
      You cannot return the individual items from the box as they are sample sizes.

  8. A schoolmate of mine told me she was a ‘business owner’. That was when the Gogi juice fad was in. She was trying to sell me her Gogi juice, for a ridiculous price, making ridiculous claims. If you flipped the back of the container, ingredients are listed greatest to smallest amount. Gogi juice was at the very bottom. It contained a few ml of actual juice.

    Its all hype…. a fad. Its whether people choose to believe it or not.

  10. I found the purple shampoo dried my hair out.My favorite line of product is Kerastase. My hair was falling out from being over possessed. It is a bit pricey at a salon but you can order it from their online website and save 50%!!! Do yourself a favor and try it. 🙂

  17. Just so everyone is aware why we get so many Monat posts: A post asking for reviews on Monat from over a YEAR ago, is still getting 200+ views per day from people finding the post through Google. It has been viewed 67,000 times, lol.

    This is the post in question, from Nov. 2016: http://soyeg.club/looking-for-honest-and-unbiased-opinions-on-monat/

    If you type in “Monat reviews” into Google, Shoutout Edmonton actuallh comes up first, which is pretty wild. 😛
