Post-Gym Pick-me-up
Toss a can in your gym bag and keep it there. After a workout, dry shampoo can serve as a style refresher and provide some needed fragrance to your hair. Get rid of that sweaty “I just worked out” smell pronto! A great dry shampoo to try is THE CHAMP™ Conditioning Dry Shampoo, which is formulated with agrana rice starch and doesn’t leave any residue behind.
Give Me Hair Volume!
Because of the texture of dry shampoo’s ingredients, it can actually be used as a volumizer on clean hair! Yessire! Hold up different swatches of your dry hair around your head, concentrating on your roots. Then mist your roots with dry shampoo, give a pass with your blow dryer, tousle with your fingers and voila! Suddenly it looks like you’ve got more hair!

The Perfect Styling Aid
Dry shampoo with provide texture and “grip” to your freshly washed hair, which can sometimes be too soft to effectively create different hair styles. Try using some mists of dry shampoo on your clean hair before braiding or styling an updo and see how the hair stays in place better.

Spike It Out!
Yes, if you have short hair, dry shampoo can do wonders! Apply it throughout your hair, muss it up a bit and you’ve created that to-die-for impish, perfectly disheveled look in no time flat.
Stop Those Slippery Bobby Pins
If your bobby pins are always sliding out of your hair, you can stop that Johnny-on-the spot by spritzing your hair first with some dry shampoo and then putting the bobby pins in. They’ll stay put and you can stop adjusting them all day long!

Eyebrows Too Flat?
Yes, dry shampoo can help your brows too. Spray a bit on your finger, gently rub on your brows and then brush them up. If you use colored dry shampoo, putting it on your brows will also give more definition. Cara Delevigne, here we come!
MONAT, the breakout hair care brand, is launching a new premium collection of hair styling products called MONAT STUDIO ONE™ that enhance performance, respect the environment and celebrate individuality.

Introducing MONAT STUDIO ONE™— A Premium Styling Collection Inspired By Your Life Luxuriously Fashionable

Blowout boutiques, brow bars, mani-pedi salons, spa retreats. Beauty and hair care have moved beyond just products to becoming full-on lifestyles and a social culture where your products and your looks reflect every facet of your life and style.
MONAT, the breakout hair care brand that embraces modern nature, has captured the moment beautifully in a new premium collection of hair styling products that enhance performance with innovative, groundbreaking technology, respect the environment by saying “no” to toxic ingredients and animal testing — and celebrate individuality and personal expression.

MONAT-STUDIO-ONE_logo_blog

“Developed specifically to inspire women around the globe to celebrate their individuality, their unique hair character and their personal style. MONAT STUDIO ONE™ gives women exciting new products that help address their specific hair needs and create the latest looks quickly and easily — so they can get on with their lives,” says Deborah Hicks, VP of Global Product Management & Strategy, MONAT.

MONAT-STUDIO-ONE-collection_blog

To bring the new MONAT STUDIO ONE™ collection to life, MONAT is opening the MONAT STUDIO ONE™ experience — a signature salon onsite in MONAT corporate HQ. The new state-of-the-art studio will be part styling salon, part creative lab where MONAT STUDIO ONE™ products will be showcased in action creating new looks for MONAT fans and family. Stay tuned for details!
MONAT STUDIO ONE™ is introducing two revolutionary styling products that capture the essence of this premium collection by addressing two of the most common and critical needs women have with their hair — frizz and protection when using high-heat styling tools.

woman-using-Frizz-Fix-Smoothing-Primer_blog

The collection’s first product, MONAT STUDIO ONE™ FRIZZ-FIX SMOOTHING PRIMER, formerly an Only For You (previously called Anti-Frizz Smoothing primer) bonus, is a leave-in treatment designed to use after shampooing and conditioning to help control frizz, defend against humidity, guard against pollutants and protect the hair surface from damage while styling. It delivers 12 hours of smooth sleek looks and powerful perfection. Frizz has met its match. MONAT STUDIO ONE™ FRIZZ-FIX SMOOTHING PRIMER is perfect for all hair types: straight, wavy, curly, coily.

woman-using-Thermal-Protect-Styling-Shield_blog

Next in the line is MONAT STUDIO ONE™ THERMAL PROTECT STYLING SHIELD. This professional-quality styling prep product is formulated to create a powerful level of protection for hair when using high-heat styling tools including curling irons, hot rollers and flat irons that can reach up to 450F/232C in temperature. Protects all hair types and textures when straightening, curling and styling with high heat. It can do this because it has an advanced heat defender technology that absorbs and dissipates heat onto the hair when styling. A blend of plant-based actives provide a high performance, yet gentle matrix that shields the hair fiber against moisture loss and damage caused by thermal treatments and high temperature styling tools, while providing a smooth, silky feel and improved shine.

Refinish-Control-Hairspray-and-The-CHAMP-Conditioning-Dry-Shampoo-MONAT-STUDIO-ONE_blog

Also, two former MONAT products will now be included in the MONAT STUDIO ONE™ collection—MONAT STUDIO ONE™ REFINISH CONTROL HAIRSPRAY, known for defining layers and adding volume without weighing hair down, and MONAT STUDIO ONE™ THE CHAMP™ CONDITIONING DRY SHAMPOO, which knocks out greasiness and lets locks shine. Why? Because they are premium styling products that truly reflect the MONAT STUDIO ONE™ premium experience.

A Hair And Skin Supplement Can Really Help!

A Hair And Skin Supplement Can Really Help!

MONAT has raised the bar in hair nutrition with the supreme proprietary blend of S3. Each of the clinically proven ingredients work together synergistically to replenish the system of possible nutrient deficiencies that could be contributing to hair loss.

Dr.-Brent-Agin

Dr. Brent Agin, MONAT Scientific Board Member, reiterates this information, saying, “These days, with soil depletion and water depletion, you can no longer rely on getting all of your nutrients from food.” Dr. Agin recommends S3 Supplement Support System as a great supplement that promotes healthy hair as well as skin and nails.

S3-Supplement-Support-System_blog_nov15

S3 is a precisely formulated daily nutritional. This exclusive proprietary daily nutritional includes clinically proven ingredients, including:
  • OptiMSM®
    A rich source of sulfur and a key component of collagen and keratin that supports the structural integrity of the hair and skin.
  • ACTIVAloe®
    Improves the elasticity of both the hair and skin. Helps to improve the appearance of aging skin and hair.
  • EVNolTM
    May promote hair growth and increase the amount of hair in individuals experiencing hair loss.
  • VITAMIN A
    (as beta-carotene) – Counteracts Vitamin A deficiency which is common in people who are experiencing hair loss.
  • BIOTIN
    Provides structural support to the hair shaft and follicle.
  • ZINC
    Contains anti-aging properties which are beneficial to hair health.
“When it comes to supplements, the biggest difference is attention to safe natural ingredients,” Dr. Agin continues. “There are so many products for hair and nails that it is very hard for consumers to figure out which ones are reputable with safe ingredients. Without any governing body that weeds out the bad companies and products it is up to the consumers to figure this out. MONAT removes the guesswork for the consumer.”

Hit Refresh And Shift Your Haircare Routine From Summer To Fall When The Air Cools

Hit Refresh And Shift Your Haircare Routine From Summer To Fall When The Air Cools

Summer is a blast but it can be brutal on your beautiful hair with its intense heat, the sun’s harmful rays, pool chemicals, saltwater, sweat and going a little heavy on the highlights! All this leads to end-of-the-season tresses looking totally washed out, lacking body, bounce and brilliance.
Like transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall – packing away the strappy, light and airy pieces and pulling out rich knits and luxurious layers – your haircare should follow suit, changing with the season and flowing seamlessly into autumn’s cooler temps. Here are some tips to ensure your hair is in sync with the chillier season.

Deep-clean-with-a-clarifying-wash

1. Deep clean with a clarifying wash.
One of the most important tips for transitioning hair to fall weather is to start with a clean slate. Summer can be a particularly hard time on hair so try Clarifying Shampoo to do a deep clean to remove environmental toxins and stubborn build-up, revealing a clean, happy scalp.
2. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!
Hydration is critical to reversing summer damage and getting hair lustrous and healthy-looking for fall. The Advanced Hydrating Hair Care Collection cleanses, conditions, deeply treats and locks in essential moisture that lasts up to 72 hours! Each unique, intensely hydrating product formula is infused with two of the most technologically advanced ingredients designed to defend against and revive even the most seriously thirsty hair—REJUVENIQE S™.

HEAVENLY-HYDRATING-MASQUE-blog-for-Oct-18

3. Do a hair treatment masque.
Fix summer damage and move into fall with lustrous healthy-looking hair. A masque brings immediate penetrating nutrition and moisture back to dull, lifeless hair depleted by summer extremes. Try Heavenly Hydrating Masque with Rejuveniqe S™. It’s like a cloud of hydration that supplies a surge of moisture from root to tip, delivering soft, silky hair full of bounce, body and shine.
4. Play with color!
Fall is a great time to experiment with a new hair color. Rock a rich red in tones from copper to auburn to burgundy. Or go soft and chic in brown with caramel highlights. Or rock on bold with shocking pink, ultra violet or cobalt blue. Then surround yourself in full-on fall color, take some selfies and set your Instagram feed on fire!

Get-a-trim

5. Get a trim.
Parting with even just a couple inches of your precious hair can be tough but getting a good trim and freshening up the ends can do wonders. Fall is the perfect time to cut away the damage and split ends of summer-ravaged hair. A trim gives shape, adds a bit of bounce and basically just cleans up your hairstyle. Or if you’re feeling like really switching it up for fall, go for a dramatic new cut and step into fall with a totally new look.

Want An Eyelash Serum That Really Works? Find Out Here!

It seems that every woman wants fuller, stronger, lush eyelashes. Don’t you? But there are so many products on the shelves today, it’s hard to pick the truly right one.
Most over-the-counter eyelash serums contain biotin (a B vitamin), peptides, or lipids. But, according to Debra Jaliman, M.D., a dermatologist based in New York City, for some people, these formulas may cause sensitivity or an adverse reaction – itchiness along the eyelash line is one common side effect.1
What to do? Pick one widely known for its amazing results…Eye Wonder Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum! This amazing formula will help lashes and brows appear fuller, longer, healthier and rich with shine.

woman-using-Eye-Wonder-Lash

EYE WONDER is a high-performance serum with proprietary and proven ingredients, including Capixyl™. This clinically proven active helps to increase the length and density of lashes and brows.

Both lashes and brows look great!
