FEEL LIKE NEW WITH A NEW HAIR DO


Have you ever left a beauty salon feeling wonderful and confident, or frustrated and uncomfortable? Studies have shown that our hair can have a great impact on how we see and feel about ourselves, and even on how we behave in social environments. A hair style can even alter the perception that other people have of us. But that’s ok, diversity is a beautiful thing! And hair can be so versatile and fun, that by changing your style you can easily reinvent yourself over and over again.


We see a lot of this among Hollywood stars. They have good and bad hair days, just like us, but they’re constantly setting the pace for new trends in fashion, hair and makeup, and many times they are the ones who inspire fashion designers. Good thing awards show season is just getting started and we can get a few ideas from what’s ‘in’ now!


At the Golden Globes for example, we saw a few really pretty cool hairdos, some of which are not hard to put together at home, like Eva Longoria’s old-fashioned low chignon, Rachel McAdams’ high pouf, and Taraji P. Henson’s messy side coif. We loved these for their elegant simplicity and full of body-ness!


And you know what can definitely help you add more body and volume to your locks? You got it: MONAT! Each one of the MONAT products and Systems are specially formulated to nourish your hair and scalp and help you have visible longer, fuller, stronger, youthful-looking hair.


So if you’re looking to feel like new this New Year, why not go for a different hairdo?

Wave That Ponytail Hello
Who says all ponytails are created equal? It’s time to shake things up, whether you have straight of curly hair.
  • After washing your hair with your favorite MONAT shampoo and conditioner, spray Reshape Root Lifter directly to roots and apply Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy throughout ends.
  • Whip your hair to the front and blow dry downwards.
  • Divide your hair in medium-sized sections and use a curling iron to shape each one from roots to ends (be careful not to get the iron too close to your scalp).
  • Separate the curls with a flat, thin-bristle brush and hold your hair in a ponytail at desired height, without flattening the top to keep the waves all over.

 

 

No More Braids, Thank You
Time to give your hair and your scalp a breather. Gently remove the tight braids and use MONAT daily to nourish every strand, give your mane a healthy shine, and avoid freeze.
  • Apply a generous amount of Replenish Masque on all your hair and scalp and leave in for 20 minutes.

The Hipster In Me
Be daring. Be bold. Be [the real] you. Besides looking cool, a good short avant-garde trim will remove split ends and help your hair gain strength and bounce.
  • After washing your hair with your favorite MONAT shampoo andconditioner, spray Reshape Root Lifter directly to roots and apply Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy throughout ends.
  • Use a medium-sized round brush to blow-dry your hair upwards. Do not flat-iron.

  • Finish by spraying Refinish Control Hairspray all over.

 


New Year, New [Self-Loving] You!

January is Self-Love Month, right before the nationally celebrated month of getting struck by Cupid’s arrow and loving others… Coincidence? We think not : -). We’ve all heard that, to be able to love others, we need to first learn to love ourselves. What a great mindset to start off the New Year! But what is “self-love”, really? We asked colleagues and friends what “loving thyself” meant to them and we got pretty cool responses. Here are a few of our faves:

WAYS TO LOVE THYSELF


When you truly love yourself you don’t get the urge to feel superior to others. Instead, you see other people’s experiences as an opportunity to learn about life… And in the end, you’re less judgmental and more compassionate not only towards them, but also towards yourself.
Ironically, I used to “love” myself by not caring about my appearance, because to me, this was a way of “accepting” myself, but I was very shy and insecure and I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror. That all changed once I committed to taking care of my body -from the inside out and from head to toe!
Pamper yourself, exercise, smile to stranger, read a book, open the door for someone, take a break, educate yourself, eat chocolate without guilt, don’t say no to everything or yes to anything… To me, it’s the simplest things that make us feel good about ourselves!
Some people are so proud and think so highly of themselves that they never accept when they’re wrong. I think that when you have self-love, you are confident and brave enough to be humble and say “I’m sorry”.

It’s not about ignoring your flaws, it’s about embracing them… Don’t love yourself despite your imperfections, love yourself with your imperfections!

New Year, new you… new hair!

QUICK FACTS ABOUT HAIR LOSS

Did you know…?

  • According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), Female Pattern Hair Loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, affects about 50 million men and 30 million women in the US.
  • Up to 40% of women in America experience hair loss.
  • It’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs each day.

Besides hereditary thinning or baldness, other possible causes of hair loss include:

  • Stress experienced due to traumatic events, such as the loss of a loved one
  • Nutritional deficiencies caused by low intakes of protein, iron, vitamin D, and calcium
  • Hormonal changes like those experienced during menopause
  • Illnesses or medical conditions such as thyroid disease, diabetes, lupus or anemia
  • Excessively pulling your hair throughout the years with tight ponytails, buns, and braids
  • Excessive use and application of chemicals such hair relaxers, perms, bleaches, and dyes

How MONAT Can Help

Excessive sebum in the scalp, often accompanying thinning hair, is attributed to general inflammatory conditions in the body. MONAT’s seven Treatment Systems have been specially formulated with key ingredient Capixyl™, which aids in hair regrowth and maintains a well-hydrated scalp. With Red Clover Extract, Capixyl can boost stronger, thicker and healthier tresses.
