What is your hair problem?

Now a days because of the toxins and chemicals our hair endures, I want to say 4 out of 5 people will complain of not liking the overall health of their hair. Just from the people you know, who do you know that does not have thinning hair or balding, or some other issue with their hair? What about hair breaking off or hair that just feels dull and dry?

Whatever your hair issue, Monat has the right shampoo for you.


Intense Repair Treatment Shampoo:

This Monat Shampoo is designed to intensely clean your hair and scalp. It breaks down any product build up. Acting as a heat protectant and providing protection from being exposed to the sun and heat,  it also helps the natural regrowth of hair. Because it penetrates and nurtures the scalp, it improves hair follicle strength, thus, reducing hair thinning.

Intense Repair Shampoo provides maximum strength for extreme hair thinning and/or balding.

Natural Hair ProductsThis Monat Shampoo is for anyone that has noticeably thinning hair or worse, balding. It is formulated with invigorating mint and rosemary, both active ingredients for hair growth. What really makes this shampoo special is that it has 2 times the amount of Red Clover Extract which promotes fast hair growth, over the other Monat Shampoo’s; Renew & Revive. IR Shampoo provides maximum strength, growth & density, quickly reducing scalp inflammation and DHT build up in the scalp. This allows rapid repair of what is limiting & reducing hair growth. I call this guy a “brothers best man” because it’s been known to help many males suffering with balding. But not just men; those of you who are women suffering from post-partum hair loss or hair loss due to illnesses, stress or other environmental damage, this is your man!

More on IRT Shampoo Ingredients:

It also contains ingredients such as Procataline, which helps maintain healthy levels of antioxidants in follicles to combat premature thinning while protecting color and shine. Capixyl prevents and reduces scalp inflammation, strengthens and thickens hair while stimulating natural growth. This shampoo as well as all other Monat Shampoo is infused with Rejuveniqe oil. It is Monat’s own proprietary blend of unique oils containing essential powerfully active botanical ingredients. And last but not least, Crodasorb, which is a UV absorber that helps protect hair from sun damage.

All three of the Monat shampoo can be used by men. I know my husband loves my Renew Shampoo. I actually had to tell him it’s off limits for him because I need it more than him. Good thing Monat has a shampoo for men, otherwise I’d need to hide it from him!

Hi Mary, I’m sorry to hear about your discomfort.

Rejuveniqe has been proven to help dry itchy skin as well as Eczema. I will send you samples if you could please send me your address to my email

I am wanting to order a system. However…. it’s hard to choose which system is best for me. The quiz seams to not be working right now. I believe I would really like the Intense Repair Shampoo. What are your opinions on this one? If you have samples of this… they would be greatly appreciated. At this point- I believe any system would work-

Hi Mendy. Yes the Intense Repair shampoo is very good if you’re hair really needs intense therapy. I started with this after many years of wearing extensions and ruining my hair. I would highly recommend it. I dont have samples at this moment, I actually just sent in my last one today, but I did order some and they will come next week. If you dont want to wait till next week (it’ll actually be longer cuz i’ll have to send them your way so you’ll be waiting a bit over a week…) you can order the system today and you have 30 days to try it and if you dont love it, you can send it back and get all your money back. I will also email you just so we can communicate further. (Yes I apologize, the quiz link isn’t working right now. They’re working on it. But I did include the colorful cheat-sheet at the bottom of my post so you can use that to see which one you’d prefer).

Hi, my hair has been falling out like crazy. I dont have thick hairvto begin with. I just want to keep what I have. I’ve been looking at the reviews. This line seems to have helped a lot of people but I have also seen negative reviews about hair falling out more which is a bit concerning for me. I don’t want to pay all of that money and it not work for me.. I’d love a free sample to see it is what I’m looking for.

Sure I can send you a sample. Ive been using this product a long time now and I actually didn’t notice in “increase” of hair shedding. It actually was the opposite for me, I had less fall out and my overall hair health was improving drastically. (It’s normal to have some fallout; usually hair falls out when the hair follicles are enlarging for new hairs to begin to grow, when the scalp gets rid of old cells and dormant hair 🙂 ) Our products target hair thinning and help hair grow fast as well as help new hair to start growing. I will email you so that you can give me your address. I actually just ran out of samples but ordered some last night so I’ll get them soon and will send you some!

My hair is dry and my scalp is itchy. I have very thick, natural wavey hair and usually let it air dry, but sometimes blow dry and flat iron. Is this something you would use every time you wash your hair or once in a while. I wash my hair about every 2-3 days.

My hair is naturally curly and starting to gray. It looks and feels dry, it’s mostly frizzy and very dull. I do not use a hair dryer. I wash it twice a week with shampoo; but do condition it most everyday. My main concerns are the dry, frizzy and dull look along with the globs of fallen hair after every wash.

Hi Anna, since your hair needs hydration I would recommend a hydrating conditioner such as the Smoothing Deep Conditioner; it works on all hair types to nourish, control frizz and add brilliant shine. It is light enough for daily use and does not weigh hair down. It restores softness and shine, and protects hair from humidity.It seems like you need really intense therapy for your hair and because you have lot off fall out I would recommend our Intense Repair Treatment System. It includes a shampoo and Intense Repair Spray. Both product are highly concentrated with Red Clover extract so that will help with hair growth and regrowth. All of our products also help with volume so that your hair won’t look dull and have umpth. I would love to send you some samples. I’ll email you so that you can give me your address to send you some samples so that you can get a taste of what are products feel like. -D

Hi, I’m not sure which products would be best for me. I have extremely thin hair to start with and it’s been thinning even more as the years pass. I dye it blonde so I do have a ton of breakage and damaged ends, but I have an oily scalp. I would love some samples. Which products do you think would be best to help with the thinning and breakage but not make my scalp even more oily? Thanks!

Hi Kristy, I would recommend or Intense Repair shampoo, it helps with oil scalp and also has the highest concentration of Red Clover Extract which helps hair growth. Revitalize conditioner is also what I recommend to anyone with an oily scalp; (although I never recommend putting any conditioner on roots. I would recommend using any conditioner on stands and ends especially if you have a problem with an oily scalp). Revitalize is a sort of a hydrating and deep conditioner that will also help hair breakage. Because your hair is chemically treated and is breaking off I would also recommend the Replenish Mask 🙂 I’ll also email you just so I can help you further if you have any more questions.

Hi Frankie, I would recommend Revive shampoo, Replenish Mask, the Revitalize conditioner or the Restore-Leave-In (or both conditioners since one hydrates and the leave in protect from damage). The mask is very hydrating and is really good if your hair is breaking like you said. The Revive shampoo is our most hydrating and moisturizing shampoo which will also help you from breakage. It’s infused with red clover extract and rejuvanique oil: the oils in our line help with hydrating, and the clover is what makes your hair grow fast and thicker. Please email me your address and I’d be happy to send you samples.

Yes that is exactly what I would recommend. We also have a spray that you spray onto your scalp, massage it and let it sit. You use it 2-3 times a day and see new hair growth. It’s part of the Let it Grow system. But I’d start for you with the IRT shampoo 🙂 I’ll email you so that you can send your address.

You seem to know a lot about Monat so I need some help. I have thin, semi-curly short hair. I would like to order some styling products but not sure if I need moxie magnifying mousse, thickening spray, tousled texturing mist or a mixture of these three. Would love some advice. Thanks so much.

Dina Semikinareply
January 11 at 03:01 AM
– In reply to: mitzi drennan

Hi Mitzi, so the Moxie Mousse is infused with REJUVENIQE, which helps to condition the hair while providing a touchable soft hold. It Supports weightless body and volume without any stiffness (like after regular mousse), or crunchiness. With it you can get an all-over fuller look and feel for thin and flat hair. It contains ingredients such as Crodasorb which helps protect the hair against harmful UV rays which can lead to dryness. This product is appropriate for all hair types and textures, including chemically and/or colour treated hair. Since it is infused with Rejuvaniqe oil, I would use it more on the surface and strands/ends; what I mean by that is I wouldn’t put it too close to roots because it has oil which moisturized but if you have thin, fine hair, it may make it a bit oily.

The Thickening Spray will give you extra body, bounce and volume to hair shaft . Provides flexible hold. I think this would be perfect for shorter, curly and thin hair.

The Tousled Texturizing Mist is awesome for creating multiple styles with a variety of textures effortlessly. So beach waves or bombshell curls….I used this every day at the beach in Miami and my hair looked like a mermaids-amazing. It’s got a non-sticky formula which is awesome cuz you dont’ feel like your hair is weighted down with product. I also love that it helps to define layers especially if you have thin hair, it’ll Add volume without weighing hair down. I also love that it’s long-lasting, second day hair is easy to fix with a touch of more mist.

My favorite though for styling my thinner hair is the Reshape Root Lifter. I spray a little onto my roots, it won’t make them oily and the volume is amazing especially if I blowdry closer to the roots of the hair.

To answer your question I think the mist and the thickening spray are the two you’d love most. I’ll email you so that you have my email incase you have more questions. Hope that helps?

January 03 at 05:01 AM

I would recommend the Renew Shampoo for you, Revitalize conditioner. Renew shampoo helps with oily scalp. The Revitalize conditioner will help you with hydration and moisturizing your scalp… Our dry shampoo is probably the best product out there; it saves me overtime. I’d recommend that just for meanwhile you’re working to restore your hair. I”ll send you a mask too, for extra hydration.

These two are infused with the most amount of Red Clover Extract to help hair growth. My hair grows so fast! Also they both work great to minimize hair fall out and thinning. All of our shampoos stimulate new hair growth 🙂 I’ll email you for your address to send you what I have so far.

Hi! I have thick, naturally curly hair which is color treated (to cover up some gray hair) that I blow dry straight three times a week. I’m currently using the Renew Shampoo and Smoothing Deep Conditioner. My hair feels dry after blow drying and it is very frizzy. I don’t remember it being this frizzy after blow drying before using Monat, but really enjoy that Monat is a more natural product, so don’t want to give up on it yet! I did try the Blow Out Cream and it did help with the frizzy part, but not the dry part. Can you help?

Dina Semikinareply

– In reply to: Renee

Hm…. Since the Renew shampoo seems to not be working for you, I’d say it’s safe to move on to the IRT Shampoo. The IRT Shampoo is my go to when I have an issue I can’t solve and it seems to help. I would also recommend using our mask at least twice a week so that your hair is moisturized and hydrated… We do have a new product, rejuvabeads mist.. after blow drying, I’d spray that over your hair to smooth any frizz out. I’m not sure it’s out on the market yet. I’ll have to check…if not try the rejuvabeands and or the rejuvanique oil.I dont recommend using the oil on your scalp but putting some on your strands when they’re wet, wrapping hair in a hot wet towel and keeping it on your head tightly, will give your hair like a spa treatment and will help with the dryness.

Hi Melissa. I would recommend the Intense Repair treatment shampoo. I recommend this shampoo to anyone who needs extreme help. Sounds like your perm went bad and most likely fried your hair? I’m really sorry to hear that. The IRT Shampoo will work to restore your hair back to health. I would also recommend the soothing conditioner as it will bring moisture and hydration to your hair. I would also recommend our Replenish mask for you; I would use this mask at least 2-3 times a week; really letting it sit in your hair for at least 10-20 minutes to really hydrate your hair and give it softness. From frizziness, I’d recommend rejuvabeads; rub some on your palms and rub through hair focusing on ends. This will help mend any split ends causing frizziness and any breakaways. I will email you for your address so that I can send you samples!
