Using products that keep your hair looking fresh and healthy is critical to managing this balancing act. Check out the four essentials we love to support your hair health, so that you can style without daily shampooing!
MONAT-STUDIO-ONE-The-Champ™-Conditioning-Dry-Shampoo_blog-march-2020_v2
A great dry shampoo is your best friend to avoid daily shampooing. Infused with REJUVENIQE™, The Champ™ leaves your hair feeling fresh and clean while knocking oil out of your hair. Expect The Champ™ to be part of your daily styling routine in between wash days.
Clarifying Shampoo_blog march 2020
You’ll need a deep cleansing shampoo if you want healthy-looking and manageable hair without daily shampooing. Our Clarifying Shampoo is one of fave go-to options! Clarifying Shampoo is formulated to lift surface impurities and rebalance hair oils while offering a deep sense of clean. Best of all, it also washes out any excess product buildup from the daily use of dry shampoos. Use it once per week for the best results.
Charcoal-Gelée-Hair-Masque_blog-march-2020
Hair masks are essential to maintaining your hair health and styling—especially if you’re avoiding daily shampooing! Our Charcoal Gelée Hair Masque also lifts impurities away while gently conditioning for optimal hair health and beauty.

The crown jewel of the MONAT haircare line should also be one of your essentials. REJUVENIQE™ is an amazing pre-shampoo treatment, so we recommend using it before your weekly Clarifying Shampoo wash. Apply a generous amount to your hair before washing and wrap a warm towel around your head for 15 minutes. REJUVENIQE™ nourishes by delivering essential oils to your hair, and the warmth of the towel aids this process.
The key to achieving great styles is a healthy hair routine that suits your needs. Your hair needs a healthy and clean environment to look its best, and this doesn’t require daily washing if you use the proper products.

Tame Your Mane, Man

4 Essential Haircare Tips for Men!
The healthy hair revolution isn’t just for the ladies. Guys, we know most of you don’t spend as much time worrying about haircare and styling as the women in your lives, but keeping hair clean, conditioned and healthy is essential for everyone. That’s why we’ve put together this rundown of 4 Essential Haircare Tips for Men!

Don’t-Shampoo-Everyday

Don’t Shampoo Everyday
If you’re like most men, you probably wash your hair every day. However, this common practice can be a one-way street to drying your hair out. This is especially true if you’re someone with naturally dry hair. So take a cue from the ladies in your life and rock some “second day hair” on occasion!

Black-Shampoo-and-Conditioner_blog_feb_13_2020

Use Conditioner
Many men choose to shampoo regularly in lieu of using conditioner. Or, in many cases, don’t even consider purchasing conditioner at all, which is hard for us to even think about! The right conditioner leaves your hair moisturized and looking shinier. If buying and toting multiple haircare products around is not your thing, a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner may be the best option for you. Consider MONAT BLACK Shampoo + Conditioner to treat your hair in one easy step.

MONAT-Black-Groom-Styling-Clay_blog_feb_2020

Invest in a Good Styling Product
Now that you’re properly washed and conditioned, you should also consider investing in a good styling product. The right styling product keeps your hair in place and helps your clean, lustrous hair pop even more! MONAT BLACK Groom Styling Clay is a good choice if you want to create a variety of modern looks without weighing your hair down.

Find-a-Good-Barber

Find a Good Barber
A great haircut is to a man what a new dress and pumps are to a woman. But you’ll never truly experience the full effects of a great haircut without a great barber! A great barber can help you create a hairstyle that best suits you and your chiseled silhouette. And once you’ve found the right barber, you should schedule a visit every two to three weeks to maintain your look.

The best hairstyles make a statement. If you’re a curly girl, braided heart is a unique way to express just how much you love February!

Half-Up-Bun

French roll updos are another elegant hairstyle choice. This is another style that lasts all day with the use of a good texturizing spray.

Reset Your Hair This New Year

Give your locks a fresh start in 2020!
You’ve made it into 2020 looking and feeling incredible! With the holidays locked-in as a complete whirlwind of family, friends, parties and maybe even some mistletoe moments, it’s time to recharge and reset your day-to-day routines to ensure a prosperous and healthy new year.
A great way to start is from the top by getting your hair in its best shape ever! Here are some great ways to reset your hair for the new year.

Say-Goodbye-to-Damage_2

Say Goodbye to Damage
Damaged hair is sooooo last year! Now is the time to repair, strengthen and rebuild your locks. To do this, choose products that offer restructuring action to help re-build strength from within. We love the Restructuring Hair Care Collection because all four of its products work together as an advanced, high performance program that result in a softer, smoother, shinier, healthier-looking finish.

Unmask-Healthy-Hair

Unmask Healthy Hair
A good mask is great for removing impurities in your hair. We love the Charcoal Gelée Hair Masque, designed with an activated charcoal, which works as a magnet to help remove impurities without stripping or drying the hair.

No-Heat-Zone

No Heat Zone
We know it’s still winter, but keep the heat to the cozy confides of your living room! Giving your hair a break from the heat of styling tools (think blow dryers, flat irons, curling wands) helps your hair breathe and allows damage to lessen. Heat free doesn’t mean you have to miss out on style! Try an Air Dry Cream before styling naturally and let those locks breathe! We love MONAT STUDIO ONE™ Air Dry Cream.

Half Up Holiday Hair
Half up hair styles are a cute way to mix things up for the holidays…plus it’s a SUPER versatile style. Whether you’re headed to dinner or an office party, this look just works! Best of all, this style is easy to create yourself, and all you need is a good flexible-hold hairspray to keep it in place!
Side-Swept-Curls
Side Swept Curls
We love curly styles and side swept curls is one of our FAVOURITE ‘dos! Make this style yours by combing a deep side part into your hair to add fullness and depth to your look. The cooling winter weather can be tough on curls, so you may want to try the new MONAT Super Nourish™ Oil Crème Duo to infuse locks with additional moisture and make this style POP!
Fishtail-Braids
Fishtail Braids
The great thing about braids is they’re always fashionable. But you don’t just want to be fashionable at your next holiday party—you want to standout! A nice fishtail braid is a great way to do that. It’s as cute as it is elegant, and that’s just what we want to be this holiday season.

With Halloween creeping up fast, we’ve got just the thing for you. Check out these four Halloween hairstyles sure to complete your costume. No tricks, just treats!

Zombie Cheerleader
While “sexier” costumes have increasingly grown in popularity, we still think there’s a place for scarier looks…while still keeping things cute! This zombie cheerleader look is a perfect example of that. It’s scary, creative, and requires the right TLC on your locks to create pin curls for that perfect “undead” look!
The-Marilyn_blog
The Marilyn
Halloween is an opportunity to pay homage to icons of pop culture! Few women are more iconic than Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn captured eyes and hearts with her confidence, vigor and always-perfect hair. The Marilyn Monroe is timeless, so you could probably wear it any time of year. But it’s sure to make you pop this Halloween! Plus, all you need for this look is rollers (applied to wet hair) to get the wavy look and a comb to part your hair. Hold your style in place with a flexible hairspray. We love MONAT STUDIO ONE™ Strong Flexi-Hold Hairspray with REJUVENIQE™ to keep things in place with long-lasting hold.
Harley-Quinn_blog
Harley Quinn
Harley Quinn has enjoyed a surge in popularity (especially around Halloween) due to the recent films in which the character has been featured. Spunky and sarcastic with a heavy sprinkle of dangerous, Harley Quinn is the perfect choice for those seeking edgier costumes. Pigtails and a good dry shampoo like MONAT STUDIO ONE™ THE CHAMP™ Conditioning Dry Shampoo are all you need to achieve the ideal second-day hair to properly rep the Harley Quinn.
Greek-Goddess_blog
Greek Goddess
Ancient Greece is known for many things, their intricate braided hairstyles and pantheon of gods among them. How about bringing both of those together this Halloween? Choosing the right braid and dress combination is an easy way to create an eye-popping costume. Plus, with so many Greek goddesses like Artemis to Aphrodite, there are plenty of options from which to choose when people ask who you’re dressed as!
