Okay folks, I shared this on FB recently, but figured I should probably blog about it as well since it will be an adventure.  Part of me is a little embarrassed about it, but I’m also very excited and thankfully the excitement is winning out.

So here’s the deal…  I recently stumbled across a new(er) haircare line called MONAT.  The name is a combo of MOdern NATure, so it’s pronounced maw-nate, but you’ll hear it said a few different ways.  Anyway, I think it was a before+after photo I saw on Instagram that caught my attention, and after exploring the #monat hashtag I contacted the company to see who was already selling it in Oregon.  They sent me a name, we met up to chat in person, and I signed up on the spot, before even trying the products myself.

As you may have guessed, this is a Direct Sales company.


Before you roll your eyes at another friend selling something, let me assure you, I will NOT be asking you to host a party and I will NOT be cramming the business opportunity down your throat. We all know how direct sales works, if you want in then just let me know, and if not, that’s totally okay.  If you just want to order some product that’s great too, you can do it all through my website and never even have to talk to me if you don’t want to, but I’d love to help you find the best products to treat your hair concerns so just let me know what you’ve got going on and we can talk products.

I honestly think this shampoo is going to change my life.  I know that sounds RIDICULOUS, but the treatment system I’m most interested in is called ‘Let It Grow’ and it’s all about HAIR GROWTH!!  Not just in length, but actually healing your roots so they can start to grow healthier hair and more of it!  Treating the “root cause” of your hair problems 😉

I’ve been getting more and more self conscious about my thinning hair, but all the hair growth stuff out there seems to be made with nasty ingredients which is why I’m thrilled with this company – NO Parabens, NO Sulfates, NO DEA/MEA, NO Phthalates, NO PEG, NO Phenoxyethanol, NO Ethanol, NO Petrochemicals, NO Glutens (yes, there is hydrolyzed wheat protein in some items, but they get gluten-free certifications from the suppliers), NO Sodium Chloride, NO Harsh Salt Systems, NO Harmful Colors, NO Harmful Fragrances.

Why am I embarrassed?  Well, I’ve done a few different business like this in the past (PartyLite, Thirty-One, Ava Anderson Non-Toxic, Demarle), and after signing up I never do a darn thing with them.  Monat feels different though.  Everyone already uses shampoo, and I can see myself actually using and loving this product, so I feel like it will be easier to share about it naturally and genuinely.  I don’t have million dollar fantasies, but if I can bring in some extra money with this side business by helping others get healthier hair then that sounds great.  Who doesn’t want awesome hair, right?!

I wouldn’t be a good friend if I kept this product a secret, in fact, after I posted about it on Instagram I found out two friends were already using it and loving it, and I was like “WHY HAVEN’T YOU TOLD ME ABOUT IT?!!” 😀

Expect more info to come, but I’ll try not to be too annoying about it 😛

I do have a Monat website, and I’m on social media too so follow me on FB or IG to stay up to date:


Have you already heard about Monat?  Using it and loving it?  Skeptical and have questions?  Let me know!!

(Oh, and yes, I realize I’m almost a year overdue on an update about That PNW Shop, so stay tuned for that!)
