Tell Your Frizz to Make Like Felicia

Do not adjust your screen.

Yes, it’s really me.

Writing a blog post.

And yes, that title is a lame Friday joke. Get it? Bye Felicia? Bye Frizz?

Too much of a stretch?

Gosh it’s been a while, but it feels so good to be back.

I feel like the old lady in Titantic

“It’s been 84 years…”

Anywho…

I just tried a  brand new product with ground-breaking, innovative technology and it completely rocked world, so I needed to break my silence and tell you all about it.

I get messages all the time asking me how to combat summer frizz. Well, want to know one of the main causes of frizzy hair?

Dehydration.

Dehydrated hair is dull, frizzy, and poufs when exposed to humidity. That’s why so many people struggle with frizz in the more humid summer months.

This new product duo that I tried is the first to specifically target hair hydration.

I always thought moisture and hydration were one and the same, but I was wrong!

Hydrating the hair is the process of using humectants, proteins, amino acids and critical vitamins that penetrate the hair fiber, infusing and improving the absorption of water and nutrients so that the hair holds and retains moisture.

On the other hand, moisturizing the hair is the process of using butters and oils to coat the outer surface of the hair fiber, sealing and locking down the hair shaft so moisture cannot get in or out of the fiber.

Pretty cool, huh?

These new products from Monat use hyaluronic acid-based technology and body-building Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5).  They are supercharged with the most powerful and highest concentrated assortment of active ingredients effective for restoring smoothness, elasticity and manageability while protecting the hair from further moisture loss. Clinical studies showed 195% improvement in hydration!

In short, this company has bottled voodoo magic. Behold Monat’s Heavenly Hydrating Masque and Double Action Hydrating Serum:

I tried the masque first and I was blown away. Seven years in the beauty industry trying countless products and I’ve NEVER tried anything like it. My hair sucked it up like water through a straw! It was super lightweight, and gave me bounce, body and shine.  It wasn’t heavy at all, yet I saw and immediate improvement in hydration and didn’t feel like I needed to follow with conditioner.  I blow dried with blow out cream and hit it with the curling iron for some loose waves.  This was my result:

I haven’t had a trim since January, you guys! This stuff is bananas!

Now, if you really want to kick it up a notch, this masque can be combined with Monat’s Double Action Hydrating Serum. Seriously it’s like hair boot camp. These two products together pack some serious punch.

If summer is wreaking havoc on your hair and your find your strands parched and frizzing to oblivion, here is what you need to do:

Wash your hair (Rinse and repeat preferably with Monat shampoo).

Towel dry.

Shake serum like a polaroid picture to activate.

Apply a half to full bottle of serum depending on the length and thickness of your hair.

Wait 2-3 minutes.

Apply a generous amount of the heavenly hydration masque. Typically with Monat products less is more, but in this case more is more. I needed more product than I thought I would.

Put on the glamorous shower cap included with your serum.

Wait 10 min. I recommend shaving your legs then maybe getting out of the shower and scrolling Instagram if you’re worried about “finding the time.” If you’re reading this thinking I can’t find 15 min to treat myself you’ve got bigger problems than your hair amiright?!

Rinse well (or shampoo one more time if you have super fine or oily hair).

Condition (if you feel like your hair could use a little more love).

Style as usual.

I air dried because let’s be honest it’s summer, it’s hot and I ain’t blowdrying nothing.

Boom:

                                             

It’s important to note that I air dried in Florida humidity with zero frizz. Zero. If that isn’t something to get excited about, then I don’t know what is!

Since I know you all are going to ask… other products used to get look above include:  renew shampoo, revitalize conditioner, air dry cream, curl cream, and rejuvamist. You can take this quiz to find the best product cocktail for you.

This magic just launched last week and it is a game changer. I’ve been using Monat exclusively for three and a half years so my hair was in good shape to begin with, but this double whammy of hydration takes it to the next level. I’ve never tried anything like it because nothing like it even existed until now. Modern nature and innovation – that’s what Monat is all about – all while being non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty free. I don’t think I’ve ever remained loyal to a line for this long, but I swear just when I think it can’t get any better, it does.

Dying to try? You can get your hands on some here.

Meet MONAT

A tube of shampoo has changed my life.

Yes, you read that correctly.

I tried a shampoo sample of a brand new American-made haircare line that was sent to me by a reader, and before I knew it I was starting (another!!!!????!!!!) business.

If you follow me on social, this isn’t news (I’ve been shouting it from the rooftops), so I’m not going to go into lengthy explanations here, I’m just going to let my before and after photos speak for themselves.

Here you see me with salon styled hair (left) and home blow dried hair after using MONAT Revive Volumizing Shampoo and Restore Leave-in Conditioner (right).

picstitch(5)That’s some serious volume.  Like magic volume.  I was instantly hooked.

What about second day hair, you ask?

Left: Second Day MONAT Hair – all I did was brush it                                            Right: Second Day Bumble and Bumble Hair – all I did was brush it.

Now if you know me you’ll know that second day hair is not a common phenomenon around these parts.  My hair is greasy.  My hair is all over my head and pointing every which way when I get up.  If I do pull off second day hair it is only with massive quantities of dry shampoo, push powder and about 20-30 minutes battling with a flat iron and curling iron.  After using Monat ONE TIME I woke up with salon blow out hair.  I kid you not.  If I didn’t experience it, I would never believe that a product could be so good – and believe me I’ve tried PLENTY… and I’ve spent PLENTY.  Nothing even comes close to the results I got after using MONAT ONE TIME.
