Feed Your Hair

Eating healthy not only contributes to weight loss, it also does wonders for your hair. A diet rich in nutrients will help you stay healthy, ageless, and all-around fabulous. So why not give yourself a beauty boost with enhancing nourishments? Below, we’ve outlined some positive nutrition practices to keep in mind for a healthier mane.

Load up on Leafy Greens

Leafy greens are filled with nutrients and a whole lot of water, which helps keep your hair hydrated. Without proper body hydration, your hair will begin to look dry, which can contribute to breakage. Leafy greens also condition and create healthy scalp oils, and they contain antioxidants that fight free radicals from pollution, helping to strengthen and thicken hair. Seriously, who knew?

For the greatest nutritional benefits, leafy greens, like broccoli, kale and spinach, should be consumed raw or lightly steamed.

Include Healthy, Protein Rich Foods

Hair is made of protein, so ensuring you have enough protein in your diet is crucial for making it strong and healthy. If you are not consuming enough protein in your diet, your hair is likely to become dry, brittle and weak. Extremely low protein diets may also result in hair loss, and nobody wants that! Add a few servings of protein to your daily diet for stronger, healthier hair.

Examples of protein include chicken, turkey, fish, dairy products and eggs, along with vegetarian sources such as legumes and nuts.

Eat More Healthy Fats

Omega-3 fatty acids nourish follicles for stronger, shinier hair. Eat fatty fish like wild-caught salmon and albacore tuna. Incorporating avocados into your meals will also help fortify hair for stronger strands. So go ahead – order that extra serving of guacamole. Your hair will thank you.

Date Night Hair Ideas

This Valentine’s day, we’re going for romantic, sexy, and classic. Here are some of the easiest hair styles you can make effortlessly at home and that never go out of style.

The Smooth Blowout
A long mane with a soft bend and incredible shine—now that’s romantic.

  • Wash hair with your favorite MONAT Shampoo and Conditioner.
  • Rub a generous amount of ReStyle Instant Sculpting Taffy between hands and apply to roots while still damp.
  • Blow-dry with a large round brush to add body all over and lend a slight curve at the ends (turn your face-framing layers toward your face).
  • Rub a few drops of REJUVENIQE™ Oil between your hands and apply to hair ends to seal the shaft, avoid frizz, and give superb shine.
  • Set hair as desired and mist on ReFinish Control Hairspray an arm’s length away.


The High Swipe
As you know, MONAT is not just for women!

  • For a soft and smooth kissable face, apply a generous amount of BLACK Cream Shave to skin and shave as desired. For an invigorating sensation, finish by applying BLACK Aftershave + Moisturizer.
  • After washing hair with Men’s 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner, rub a dime-sized amount of BLACK Groom Styling Clay between hands and apply all over hair.
  • Add height and volume by blow-drying upwards and to the side using a medium-sized round brush.
  • To add shine and softness, rub two drops of REJUVENIQE™ between hands and apply to ends as evenly as possible.

The Sleek, Sexy Ponytail
A style that can go from day to night – here’s everything you need to recreate this celebrity-obsessed signature style.

  • Wash hair with MONAT’s Renew Shampoo and Restore Leave-In Conditioner.
  • To prep hair for an updo, rub a few drops of REJUVENIQE™ between your hands and apply evenly throughout hair ends.
  • Use a nylon and boar bristle brush to smooth strands.
  • Apply ReStyle Instant Sculpting Taffy to each side and then use a thin bungee tie to gather hair near the crown of your head.
  • Once hair is in a ponytail, spritz each side with ReFinish Control Hair Spray.
  • Lastly, take a small section of hair from underneath it, apply a dime-sized amount of ReStyle Instant Sculpting Taffy and wrap it around the bungee to conceal its appearance for a chic, pulled-together look.
