I have naturally straight hair, but I love to curl it and create wavy, textured locks! Other than the occasional mist of hairspray, I'm hesitant to put other products in my hair - mainly because I don't want to load it up with harsh chemicals and partially because I don't need any more oil in my hair than I already seem to accumulate.
MONAT reached out to me to see if I'd be interested in trying some of their hair products - I was really interested in the fact that the ingredients in the products are naturally-based and sustainable. What's extremely helpful is that all of the items in their online storefront have the ingredients listed, so you know exactly what's in the product you're purchasing. I was also interested in finding out whether I could discover a new product that wouldn't add shine and oil to my hair, so I happily agreed and received the Replenish Masque and the Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy.
I used both of these products for three weeks - the Replenish Masque replaced my usual conditioner and the Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy replaced my hairspray. I am in love with the smell of these products! The best part is, there are no harsh fragrances, harmful colors, parabens, sulfates or other nasty chemicals that can slowly destroy your hair and effect your health.
I also love the way my hair feels. I've been happily running my hands through my hair, noticing that it's got more of a bounce and lightweight feeling, and most importantly, no added oiliness. The Replenish Masque revitalizes my post-shampoo tangled hair and makes it feel so smooth and nourished, while the Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy does an amazing job of adding texture to my hair and keeping my curls from losing their bounce in the Florida humidity.
Overall, I'm extremely pleased and impressed with the MONAT products I've tried so far. At $50 and $34 price points, the Replenish Masque and Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy are at a higher end than your usual drugstore hair brands, but considering the all-natural, botanical ingredients and how they've made my hair feel and look in just under a month, I truly believe that they are well worth it.
