Turn heads with gorgeous lashes and brows!

The eyes are the window to the soul.
Make an Unforgettable First Impression
Your eyes play a huge role in first impressions because they are generally the first feature people notice when meeting you.
Long Lashes Mean Major Eye Appeal
Long lashes are a universal symbol of beauty. Full, lush lashes exude sex appeal and youthfulness. Many feel that long lashes increase their self-esteem. Why? Because when we look good, our confidence is boosted and we feel better about ourselves! Want to turn heads each time you step out the door? Emphasize your eyebrows and eyelashes!
Boast Those Brows
Eyebrows have been in the spotlight more than ever recently and there’s a reason why. Thick, full, well-groomed eyebrows frame the eyes and highlight your best features. The right eyebrow shape can brighten your appearance and make you look more youthful, as well as draw more attention to your eyes…and to you. In fact, strong brows will turn heads faster than you can blink an eye!

Not everyone is born with full, luscious eyebrows or long, luxurious eyelashes. But you can take steps to help your brows fill in and help your eyelashes grow longer by using a serum.
We love Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum by MONAT™. This easy to use serum contains clinically proven Capixyl™, which helps to increase the strength and condition of brows and lashes. It also contains Fision KeraVeg18, a vegetable-based alternative to animal keratin which helps strengthen and improve the luster of lashes and brows.

Spring Is Officially Here! Are You Ready?

March 20th was the vernal equinox, what we call spring. Flowers are peeking their buds out, birds’ chirps are wafting through the air and there’s a feeling of newness around the corner. Are you ready? Is your closet ready?

Each season fashion trends change, even slightly, and this spring we’re going to see a lot of stripes, waist-cinchers, khaki clothing and sleeve slits. If you take part in the slit sleeve trend, our advice is to up your bangle and bracelet game to add flair to your already cool ensemble. The khaki trench coat will be a staple to some. Slouchy fabrics, oversized buckles and extended silhouettes will take center stage.

In addition, lashes and brows are bigger than ever on the runway… and in real life! Who wouldn’t want long, full, luscious lashes that show off your eyes? And strong brows really frame your eyes and can literally change the look of your entire face.

What? You don’t have full lashes and brows? Well, now you can get them…with the new Eye Wonder Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum by MONAT.

Hair Shedding VS Hair Breakage

Now that you’re on your MONAT journey to fabulous hair, are you paying closer attention to your mane? Are you noticing a few hairs on your pillowcase? What about in the shower? Are you worried you might be shedding too much hair? Are you certain it’s shedding and not actually breakage? No need to fret! We’re here to explain the difference between hair shedding and hair breakage.

The Skinny on Hair Shedding
In case you didn’t know, it’s normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day. As stated on the American Academy of Dermatology’s (AAD) website, excessive hair shedding is common in people who have experienced one of the following stressors:
  • Lost 20 pounds or more.
  • Given birth.
  • Lots of stress (Caring for a loved one who is sick, going through a divorce, losing a job).
  • High fever.
  • Undergone an operation.
  • Recovering from an illness.
  • Stopped taking birth-control pills
Most people notice the excessive hair shedding a few months after a stressful event. As your body readjusts, the excessive shedding stops. Within a few months, the hair should regain its normal fullness. And with the help of MONAT’s naturally based, hair treatment systems, you can rest assured knowing you’re doing everything you can to prevent hair loss.

Now About Hair Breakage
When you style your hair, do you notice a lot of short, broken hair strands in the sink or on the floor? If the answer is “yes,” you’re probably experiencing hair breakage. Hair breakage is a result of too much heat styling or chemical damage. Here are a few tips to treat hair breakage:
  • Use Replenish Masque a few times per week (2-3 times is ideal).
  • Stretch your blowout as long as you can, as the natural oils from your scalp are healthy for your hair. If you must wash your hair daily, be sure to treat it with Rejuveniqe® to keep the hair follicles coated with hydrating ingredients.
  • When hair is wet, use a naturally based leave-in conditioner like Restore and comb hair gently to avoid breakage.
  • Try to keep chemical salon services limited to one at a time. Multiple chemical services (like coloring and relaxing) is more likely to cause stress on the hair shaft.
  • Over processed hair is brittle. So if you must color process your hair, make sure to add moisture with a regular deep-conditioning regimen.
  • Avoid heat styling as much as possible.
  • Eat a diet rich in protein. Protein can repair weak spots in the hair shaft, warding off breakage. But be forewarned: Too much protein can make the hair brittle, and too much moisture makes strands too flexible. It’s important to find the right balance of moisture and protein.
