Top Hair-Washing Hacks!

Try These Top Hair-Washing Hacks!
How often have you just slapped shampoo on your head, scrubbed, rinsed, and toweled off? You may think you’re a pro, but that’s not how you score an enviably clean mane. Over time, not washing your hair properly will result in a dull film that leads to lackluster locks and an overall flat appearance. Not a good look.
But you don’t need a master’s degree to master your shower routine. These clever hair-washing hacks will make a genuine difference in your hair’s health, as well as its bounce, gloss, and silky luster.
  • Hair should be thoroughly wet before adding shampoo. Warm water will open the cuticle, which is good for removing any dirt or product trapped in the hair.
  • Condition first… sometimes: If you have long hair, condition it first. If your hair falls beneath your shoulders, protect its fragile ends from drying out and incurring more damage by running a small amount of conditioner like Volumizing Revitalize Conditioner through them and lightly rinsing before applying any shampoo. This will keep ends healthy and fill any breaks in the cuticle with moisture, making hair smooth and lustrous.
Using_Renew_Shampoo
  • Avoid using too much shampoo in the first place. Look at how much you’re using. Then cut that in half, to about the size of a quarter. That’s all you need! A shampoo like Renew Shampoo removes all the dirt and oil from your hair while holding onto the essential oils and lipids you need to prevent dryness and breakage.
  • Don’t scrub too hard. Vigorously massaging shampoo roughs up the cuticle, causing frizz, flyaways, and miniscule tangles. Ouch! Also, don’t use circular motions, which can tangle your hair.
  • Lather from roots to ends. The hair closest to the scalp is the youngest and will be the oiliest, while the end of the hair is the oldest and usually driest, most fragile part of the hair follicle. First, rub shampoo between your hands with a little water to emulsify it. Then, gently massage your roots with your fingertips and run the lather that’s left through the length of your hair. This is the first wash, known as external cleansing.
shampoo_monat_balck
  • There’s a reason to shampoo your hair twice. The first wash removes excess dirt and grime. The second gets your hair squeaky clean. The second wash is also when you get shampoo into the roots and create a proper lather. The suds will run down the rest of your hair, getting the mid-length to ends clean.
  • Get the shampoo completely out of your hair. That way your conditioner can work its magic. A full two minutes of rinsing is what’s recommended. Once that’s done, gently squeeze the excess water out of your hair. Now you’re “conditioner ready!”
  • How often you wash your hair depends on your hair type. If you have oily or fine hair, you may need to shampoo daily. Normal hair can probably be washed three times a week, and dry to very dry hair can go 4–5 days and even up to a week without washing.
A word of warning: Skip the sulfates! Sulfates are detergents that give shampoo its foamy lather. But they strip skin of oil and dry out your hair. Sulfates can also strip hair of colour. Shampoos without sulfates keep the cuticle tighter, which prevents colour fading. Ignore them all together and use a shampoo without any harsh ingredients like Renew Shampoo.
Try these hair-washing hacks, so you can be on your way to a fabulously healthy head of hair.

Hydrating vs. Moisturizing: What’s the Difference?

Both oil and water are essential to supple, healthy-looking skin.
Hydrators and moisturizers both work to combat dryness and dehydration, but they’re not the same!
Watch to learn how each works and why your skin needs both.

4 Easy Steps to Deep-Cleaning Pores

Proper care for radiant skin can be simple, soothing and indulgent.
Cleansed pores are the best pores, and removing impurities from the skin can be an extremely soothing experience—especially when you’re doing it at home on the couch with your favourite products. Not only will your freshly cleansed complexion look radiant every day; you’ll also feel flawless in your own skin. Let’s get started!
Makeup_Vanishing_Balm™_Blog_August_2021
Step 1: Remove your makeup.
We’re all guilty of falling asleep without washing off our makeup. We forgive you, but your pores may not if it becomes a habit, because they’ll become congested, which can lead to breakouts. Even if your makeup appears “wiped away” in the morning, it’s too late: That makeup has already made its way deep into your pores.
Enter Makeup Vanishing Balm™. In mere seconds, this remarkably smooth, gentle balm melts into your skin, dissolving stubborn makeup while leaving your skin feeling soft, soothed, nourished and non-greasy. This vital step creates the ideal canvas for deep cleansing with your MONAT Skincare Routine.
BE_PURIFIED™_Clarifying_Cleanser_Blog_August_2021
Step 2: Wash your face.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but throughout the day, your face unavoidably collects grime and impurities. A good facial cleanser is a must-have product at the centre of every skincare routine.
If you have oily skin, keep your face free of buildup with BE PURIFIED™ Clarifying Cleanser. Infused with botanical extracts green tea, rosemary, and aloe vera leaf, plus powerful glycolic and lactic AHAs to nourish, refresh, and purify the skin, this oil-free cleanser gently reduces excess oil and unclogs pores without drying while reducing shine for up to eight hours.
Berry_Refined_Scrub™_Blog_August_2021
Step 3: Exfoliate.
Exfoliation is one of the most powerful steps in your skincare routine—and most effective when performed regularly and properly. Circular motions help your scrub absorb fully for deep pore cleansing. Remember, regardless of your skin tone or type, skin layers are delicate, so be firm yet gentle during this indulgent step in your routine, ideally done once to twice weekly.
Of course, a proven, award-winning exfoliant helps, too! Winner of the 2020 NewBeauty Award for Best Face Scrub, Berry Refined Scrub™ is formulated with our proprietary REJUVENIQE S™ hydrating and nourishing blend, natural fruit acids, naturally exfoliating granulated sugar extracts, and cranberry and bayberry wax to polish skin and reveal a smooth, healthy-looking complexion.
BE_PURIFIED™_Cold_Charcoal_Mask_Blog_August_2021
Step #4: Apply charcoal mask.
A charcoal face mask not only helps refine and deep-cleanse pores; it also creates a cooling, refreshing sensation that feels fabulous. Formulated specifically for oily skin types, oil-free BE PURIFIED™ Cold Charcoal Mask gently absorbs excess oil, unclogs pores, and creates an instant matte effect, reducing shine for up to eight hours. It’s the perfect pampering touch to a warm bubble bath at the end of your day: Apply, lean back, and enjoy a well-deserved dose of self-care.

It’s National Clean Beauty Day!

Would you sacrifice your health for the sake of beauty? Thanks to the rise in safer ingredient standards, you don’t have to. Today is National Clean Beauty Day and the perfect day to learn what it means, and how you can make the switch to “cleaner” products.
If you follow beauty brands on social media, chances are good you’ve heard the term “clean beauty” at least once. But what exactly does it mean? Clean beauty products are made without ingredients shown to harm human health.
Make the switch from “dirty” to “clean.”
Clean beauty is about awareness. It means making a conscious effort to use ingredients that are deemed safe for public consumption. It’s up to you – the consumer – to be well versed in what you’re layering on your skin or applying to your hair.
Did you know formaldehyde, used in cosmetics as a preservative, is a known carcinogen, and is often found in creams and haircare treatments? Formaldehyde can also trigger allergies and weaken the immune system. Instead of sabotaging your health for frizz-free locks, consider a healthier hair care regimen to tame your mane. MONAT STUDIO ONE™ Frizz-Fix Smoothing Hair Primer is a great pre-styling treatment that helps control frizz, and defends against humidity, for long-lasting definition, shine, and smoothness.
When it comes to skincare, not all cleansers are created equal. MONAT Be Gentle™ Creamy Cleanser, Be Balanced™ Foamy Cleanser, and BE PURIFIED™ Clarifying Cleanser are designed to clean and hydrate skin without toxic ingredients. They are made with the finest naturally based ingredients for a renewed, healthy-looking, youthful complexion. If you’re looking for a safer alternative to retinol, Botanic Bakuchiol Vegan Retinol Alternative Lotion contains plant-derived ingredients that have been clinically proven to prevent fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, and is safe for daily use.
If you’re keen on going clean, switching to a safer sunscreen is also a good idea—especially one rich in mineral-based zinc oxide. Reach for Sun Veil™ Daily Mineral Protection SPF 30. The vegan formula offers serious daily physical sun protection and nourishment. Zinc oxide gives you broad spectrum protection from UVB and UVA rays, meaning your skin is getting the best sun protection possible.
If you agree clean beauty is better beauty, share this blog post with your friends!

Protect Your Skin: Expert Summer Skincare Tips

Dr. Amy S. Ross offers her advice for healthy summer skin
The sun is shining and you’re ready to head outside for some relaxation under the warm rays. But before you go, your summer skincare routine remains a top priority.
IMG_Dr._Amy_S
We asked Dr. Amy S. Ross, MD, FAAD, FACMS, board-certified dermatologist, and member of the MONAT Scientific Advisory Board for her best advice to help keep skin protected and healthy-looking all summer long.
“A solid skincare routine should apply to all seasons and all climates,” says Dr. Ross. “With that said, there are a couple of changes one might consider when transitioning from winter to summer.”
BE-PURIFIED™-Oil-Free-Moisturizer_Blog_July_2021
Moisturize Daily
“Despite the weather being hot and humid, you still need to moisturize,” says Dr. Ross. “Even if your skin feels oily, moisturizing is a must.” BE PURIFIED™ Oil-Free Moisturizer is a lightweight formula to help keep skin’s outer layer nourished without feeling heavy. Dr. Ross also recommends using Sun Veil™ Daily Mineral Protection SPF 30 after moisturizing.
C.-Radiance™-Illuminating-Serum_Blog_July_2021_v2
Apply Vitamin C Serum
“Vitamin C is great year-round, but all the more important in the summer,” says Dr. Ross. C. Radiance™ Illuminating Serum is a supercharged 15% vitamin C serum featuring powerful antioxidants to help brighten and enhance your complexion. C. Radiance™ glides on and absorbs easily, working rapidly to create a healthy, youthful-looking glow.
Exfoliate
Exfoliate
Summertime is the season to slough away dead skin via exfoliating. Dr. Ross suggests incorporating exfoliation into your daily routine. Berry Refined Scrub™ is a 2-in-1 exfoliator mask that gently buffs and removes dead skin cells to reveal more even-toned, glowing skin.
Stay-in-the-Shade
Stay in the Shade
Skincare experts recommend wearing sun-protective clothing, wide-brim hats, and sunglasses in the sun. Reduce your entire body’s exposure to direct sunlight by sitting under an umbrella, and avoid midday sun to avoid overexposure and sunburn.
Stay-Hydrated
Stay Hydrated
“Hydration is always important for our skin, but even more so in the summer,” says Dr. Ross. Drinking eight glasses of water a day provides great results and can help the skin recover from sunburn.
Sun-Veil™-Daily-Mineral-Protection-SPF-30_Blog_July_2021
SPF, SPF, SPF
“Sunscreen needs to be reapplied every couple of hours, so make sure to pack extra for long summer days outdoors,” says Dr. Ross. She recommends a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher on all exposed skin—and don’t forget to apply it to your hands, feet, ears, and lips.
Sun Veil™ Daily Mineral Protection SPF 30 is made with mineral-rich zinc oxide, hyaluronic acid, botanicals, and antioxidants. Its hydrating formula provides the skin an extra veil of sun protection. Pro Tip: Set an alarm on your phone to remind you to reapply.

Take Care & Enjoy Winning Summer Hair!

5 tips to protect your hair and look your best all summer
Sun worshippers rejoice!
Summer is around the corner and it’s time for some of our favourite things: beach and pool days, barbecues, hikes, and endless outdoor adventure! But remember that fun in the sun can do a not-so-fun number on your hair. We’ve got you covered with 5 tips to help you protect your hair and look your best this summer!
Use-The-Right-Conditioner
Use The Right Conditioner
Switching your haircare products is essential to keeping your hair looking its best—especially during the summer. Hair tends to dry out and frizz more from ocean water, chlorine, and hours in the sun. We recommend using a smoothing conditioner to fight frizz and keep your locks looking lovely as you lounge poolside.
Get-a-Fresh-Haircut
Get a Fresh Haircut
Trimming your hair for the summer isn’t just about having a trendy new look for the season. A haircut helps ensure you rid your hair of split ends. Plus, a new do makes your hair more manageable as you head outdoors.
Wear-Your-Favorite-Hat
Wear Your Favourite Hat
Hats aren’t just a fun, fashionable way to shade your eyes and skin from the sun. They also provide your hair and scalp an extra layer of protection from damaging UV rays. While your favourite baseball cap or wide brim straw hat won’t offer total protection, they are trendy, easy ways to support your overall hair health. P.S. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
Rinse-Before-Swimming
Rinse Before Swimming
Chlorinated water is powerful and can strip away the natural oil that coats and protects the shiny layer of your hair. Avoid the damage and dry, dull, locks by rinsing your hair with cool water before taking a dip.
Avoid-Hair-Dehydration
Avoid Hair Dehydration
There’s no better way to flood your hair with essential moisture than by using a hair mask. Hair masks offer the moisture and hydration you need to keep your locks soft and shiny.
Follow these tips and make the most of what could be your best summer yet!
