Which Conditioner is Right for You?

Monat has several pre-packaged systems designed for different hair or scalp needs. But many of us have found we get the best results when we mix products together to better fine-tune our “treatment” so to speak. If you would like to get advanced treatment it is best to discuss your hair and scalp type with a Monat Market Partner. Below I will spell out what each conditioner can do for you, and here you can find the information on all of our shampoos.

We have 5 incredible conditioners. How do you know what is the right one for you?

That’s a great question and the good news is you don’t have to figure it out on your own. I’m here to help you get what is perfect based on your needs and hair goals.

5 Conditioners: Restore Leave-In, Revitalize Conditioner, Intense Repair Conditioner (think scalp repair), Replenish Masque (treatment), & the Newly Released Deep Smoothing Conditioner.

Restore Leave-In is a daily use conditioner that is as versatile as it is effective. This conditioner works great as a rinse out as well. It has great humidity fighters built in to help you fight the frizz in even the thickest humid air or frigid temps. It packs powerful moisture to rehydrate sun dried and wind whipped hair. I love to have clients use this as a pre-pool swim treatment, too. Wet your hair, apply a generous amount of Restore, and swim without the concerns of chlorine uptake. Restore has hydrolyzed wheat protein in it, which is gluten free, to strengthen and repair the cuticle and improve the appearance of split ends. One little known tis-bit is Hydrolyzed wheat protein offers some protection from heat styling as proven in a 1990’s study on heat damage. The Crodasorb in it also helps protect from UV damage.

Revitalize Conditioner is a daily use rinse out, and is my favorite. It adds shine, bounce, vitality, and plumps your hair making it look and feel fuller. This is one that makes clients and Mom’s cry tears of joy. Clients love the instant boost in volume, Moms love the ease that brushing has after using this conditioner on long haired little ones who hate the brush out after the bath. Revitalize contains water and shampoo soluble film formers, that break down easily and do not build up, to plump up the hair from the very first use. This is a weightless, non greasy volumizing formulation that encourages hair growth, increases scalp health, and improves hairs appearance and manageability. A quarter sized dollop is all that is needed for even the coarsest of hair types.

Intense Repair Conditioner is a maximum strength hair grower. This moisturizing conditioner has 3 times the capixyl than our other conditioners, making it a scalp miracle worker. Intense Repair does pertain to scalp health in this instance. Capixyl quickly reduces inflammation in the scalp which helps clean DHT from the follicle and makes way for better stronger hair growth. I like this conditioner as a step up. When I have a client that is getting results, but wants to see more, faster, I’ll switch them over to the IR line. The good news is, all of our conditioners have all the right ingredients to create better hair growth, IR conditioner is formulated with more of the good stuff.

Replenish Masque is our deep hair rebuilder. There are many reasons to use a Masque, playing with color & chemicals can damage the structure of hair, wind, sun, environmental pollution can deplete moisture & make hair strands fragile or weak, prone to breakage. Replenish is packed with hydration and peptides. Peptides help rebuild the hair by reinforcing protein. A word of caution, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Protein does wonders, too much protein makes hair hard and brittle. For this reason I recommend only using the masque every 4th or 5th wash. I think it is important to always follow up your masque with a daily conditioner. The Masque focuses on the inside of the strand, and a daily focuses on the cuticle ,making it softer, smoother, shinier, and gives easier comb ability.

Deep Smoothing Conditioner is the new kid on the block. Want sleek, shiny hair with no frizz or fly aways? Get this on those tresses! It is perfectly formulated to give you that soft smooth hair that lays down and glistens with brightness. Use this with round or Denman brushes for a soft flowing finish, or flat iron for perfect pin straight styles. It’s formulated to fight the effects of humidity on smooth styles. If you’ve given up on sleek hair in the summer, this is one that will definitely help Stella get her groove back.

All of our conditioners create a ph balance that helps the cuticle lat flat, reduce comb friction, and increase reflection and shine.

We also have a wonderful Junior line that includes a gentle conditioner and detangler, perfect for those with curls or long locks. The conditioner gives children’s hair shine, manageability and helps combat frizz. It rinses out more quickly and easily than other conditioners. The detangler gives slip to the hair and helps parents win the battle with tangles. It’s also great for adults with fine hair that knots easily. The Junior Line is tear, sulfate and paraben-free, safe and gentle for all ages, and dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested.

Now that you have determined exactly which conditioner you should be using, be sure you have the right shampoo!
