Hair Care, Monat

Been there, tried that….

About 2 years ago, I read an article about the “no poo” method of getting healthy hair. Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you haven’t. Well, let me tell you…. don’t waste your time! Unless, you have a lot of time to waste! This “method” calls for using baking soda to cleanse and apple cider vinegar to rinse and condition. It claims to reduce overproduction of oil (after a few hellish weeks of crappy hair that looks dirty and gross… to say the least). Anyway, I think the goal is to get the pH back in balance with the alkaline-acid mix of the soda and vinegar.

What I can tell you is that it was horribly difficult to stick with because it took forever to comb through my hair afterward and inevitably, I would go back to using shampoo and conditioner just to have an easy and quick morning of getting showered and ready for the day!

After that experience,  I tried products recommended to me by a stylist. It was a set of Healing Oil and Color Care Trauma Treatment conditioner. Over the time I was using these products, there was absolutely no improvement in the health or the quality of my hair.  I was applying what now seems to be massive amounts of the oil. Every. Single. Day. And, my hair continued to be dry and frizzy.

These products weren’t cheap! I thought they’d be better than what I was using from Target but nope. I was disappointed and on a mission to find an oil that would actually penetrate, not just coat, my hair. My goal was to bring about restoration of my brittle, damaged hair. I found a blog with a detailed chart listing all these different plant-based oils. It was information overload and the thought of purchasing the oils to make my own miracle hair oil was too much for me to take on!

Not long after my mission to find a great hair oil, I came across a couple posts on Facebook about this hair care line. I requested a sample and washed my hair 2 times with the sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. I followed the wash with the Rejuveniqe oil and it was amazing! My hair dried more easily and quickly, it looked more moisturized and it felt noticeably smoother! Now, I know this sounds so corny and crazy….especially because it takes a lot for me to love something, but it was love at first wash! My hair looked the best it had in a long time and I was hooked! I have been using these products since April 15th. 3 months and yesterday, I let my hair air-dry. Check out the amazing difference between air-dried hair before Monat and after!

It’s a great transformation if you ask me…and, I know there’s even better results in store. These products are working to treat my scalp and a healthy scalp will grow healthy hair. Results like this don’t happen over night and take some dedication and commitment. For those who are willing to stick with the products, there will be great results! I now have shiny, pretty, healthy looking hair that is growing fast. Speaking of that, the baby hairs around my hairline are getting longer and those areas are fuller!

Opportunity….. it’s all what you make of it! 

A few days ago, in my live video about the Market Partner (MP) opportunity I mentioned something about showing how “easy” it can be.  I want to clarify and explain that statement a little bit. Talking and sharing about your business can be easy because it’s flexible…you can do it when it works for you, in any manner that works for you and in any place that works for you!  If I use the analogy of a weight loss journey to compare to this journey of building a new business, you understand that it doesn’t just happen. It’s not that kind of “easy”. You don’t exercise one time and wake up thin. It takes consistent effort and dedication. There are, however, many resources available which can make it easier to exercise whenever, whereever and however is best for you and your lifestyle. Think of Beachbody or P90x…..do what is shown with commitment and consistency and weight will be lost!

This MP business with Monat is similar. There’s a plethora of resources available from the corporate office and the amazing women and men involved in this company! Personalized website, Coroprate emails and blogs, Facebook groups, YouTube videos, Instagram and Pinterest posts. ..you name it! Follow the lead, use the resources and reach out when you need support.  When you use these resources, building your business becomes a whole lot easier!  Signing up as a Market partner has been an exciting, fun, challenging experience and I am inspired by the opportunity to help others find and use products they love to get amazing results as well as the potential it provides for some extra income while I’m also able to spend time raising our kids! You can make this business as much or as little as you want it to be!

  • Pay for a date night with your spouse!
  • Help offset the extra expense for summer childcare!
  • Buy yourself a new purse with no regret!
  • Save up for that family vacation you’ve always wanted!
  • Restore your social life!
  • Build relationships!
  • Experience personal growth!

Whatever you want. …find your “WHY” and make it happen! OPPORTUNITIES are ENDLESS! You do have it in you and I’m ready to help you;) Right now, through June 30th, you have the opportunity to recieve a FREE volume system ($99 value). Contact me via email at hairluscious@yahoo.com or phone 402-770-0313 for more details about how to take advantage of this offer. Now that’s easy!

Why MONAT?

I have considered a business with a newer hair care product line called MONAT for awhile now. I tried the products and LOVED them. Some of you may have already heard about MONAT. Well, I’ve been working on this (in my mind) for a couple months and I finally got the courage to go for it! One can never succeed without first trying;)

This is a bit scary for me, especially as I figure out the ways of social media. As you may or may not know, I usually don’t post much of anything. In order to spread the word about these great products, I started off with a Facebook group page. I have been posting details about all the benefits as well as my personal experience in using the MONAT products.

Coming from a background in healthcare where it’s important to have research to back up your clinical decision-making and recommendations for patients, I find it very reassuring that MONAT has put so much time into researching and developing a quality, naturally based product (unlike any other) in order to achieve proven results for those who use the products. In my opinion, everywhere we look we are bombarded with marketing whether it be true or not. I have yet to see or find a single negative comment about MONAT or the products. Believe me, I tried. I am one of the biggest skeptics, and I do not want to be fooled into anything. I have talked with satisfied customers, professionals in the hair care business and have read independent product reviews over the past couple months. My excitement is purely in sharing information about MONAT so that my friends family and those that I have come to know can be aware of this great product line!! If you have concerns with your hair that you would like to do something about, check out MONAT. It’s the real deal!!

We live in a day and age of access to so much information. We can be our own advocates and find the information that we need to help ourselves choose and live lifestyles using products that meet our individual needs. Think how much has come along with regard to organic foods and pesticides and GMOs, anti-aging facial care and all of these things that really matter for the health of our body, the future of our children and even the future of our environment. I want to encourage you to check into MONAT. Look at the ingredients, search testimonials, watch this page and take time to determine if it is right for you. It certainly might not be for everyone but there are tons and tons of people out there that are benefiting from the use of these products!

I just want to share the information with all of you and give you easy access to the products and information related to them. If you’ve made it to the end of this post, thank you for your time and for allowing me to share my thoughts for today!

You can check out products at hairluscious.mymonat.com. I also created a Facebook business page HairLuscious and a fun Pinterest page HairLuscious MONAT. Instagram is hair.luscious and now I’m starting this blog, as well.  The fun part is….I’m figuring this all out along the way!

Thanks for stopping by!
Go for it!

Excited to SHARE!

Sharewoman monatWhen I started as an Independent Market Partner, my greatest drive was EXCITEMENT about something new that I had found! I tried these products and really liked them. Naturally, I wanted to share the details and information with family and friends! For those of you who know me, I have no shortage of things to talk about:) I love talking to patients when I’m at work, I enjoy saying hi to neighbors and people I pass as I’m walking outside. I genuinely love to share about what’s going on in life or about something that I really like….
I relate this love of sharing to finding a great grocery store or restaurant, an awesome salon, a good sale or stellar deal on shoes or a new handbag…you know, something that you can’t help but tell others about so they can experience it too! I set out to be a resource, a place to find details and access to products. I do not have the desire to talk people into something if they don’t have any interest.

Instagram life is too shortHow many people do you know that have to be talked into a new Michael handbag? A BMW, Mercedes or Porsche?  A trendy new pair of shoes or an awesome pair of jeans?  Or even Under Armour workout clothes (even if they don’t plan to workout!!)? When a person wants something, they will read about it, talk about it, ask questions, etc. My goal with this group is to be a source of education and information. I want to share my knowledge, experiences and opinions so that you can be in the know about something new, something that has proven results, something that may be just what you’re looking for! If it’s a change in your hair, eyelashes or brows, I want to help you achieve what you want!

No one talked me into doing this…I would say that I kind of needed a little hand-holding and genuine follow-up to help me make a decision. Sometimes, I feel a little down about what I’m doing because I certainly don’t want to be viewed as a “used car salesman” or a “product pusher”…. If you know what I mean!?! I just have to remind myself of my “WHY” and get that excitement back. Even if no one does anything except read this or a few of my posts, I have done what I set out to do and that is to SHARE…. to provide access to and information about an opportunity and an option to do something different if you want! When I follow-up with you about samples, I am genuinely reaching out to help you. Kind of like I needed someone to follow-up and help me make a decision! Just a few thoughts that I wanted to share. Have a great day!!
For more information about MONAT, you can contact me at hairluscious@yahoo.com or visit my Facebook group page HairLuscious (JillSmith) or my Facebook business page HairLuscious.

MONAT Treatment Systems

1) Rejuveniqe Oil

Rejuveniqe oil is added to almost all the MONAT products. It includes vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids which mimic the body’s natural oils! This special oil reduces hair thinning, prevents oxidative stress and adds incredible volume. Many other products that claim to help your hair, i.e. Moroccan Oil or Argan oil, actually have silicones added. These silicones build up on the hair and actually cause it to become drier, more brittle and less able to absorb moisture. Essentially the hair becomes more damaged and BAM! you have a negative cycle of thinking you need more of the products. STOP and TRY Rejuveniqe oil today (after you cleanse and remove the build-up with MONAT shampoo, of course;)).
