Monat Products and Hair Loss
What are Monat Products?
Monat Global began releasing hair care products in 2014. Of the many products that they offer, they have created product lines specifically targeting consumers looking to boost natural hair growth. As another selling point, they boast all natural, cruelty-free, vegan ingredients.
Found on Monat’s official website is a page dedicated to the science behind their products. The page cites trademarked ingredients like Procataline, Crodasorb, Capixyl, and Rejuveniqe. Monat claims that these ingredients perform vital functions to nourish the scalp, protect against premature hair thinning, shield hair from UV damage, and promote hair follicle health. Unfortunately, there is no in-depth discussion of how the ingredients work to support the claims.
Where Do I Get Monat?
Monat Global has established a loyal following by selling through multi-level marketing channels. They convert enthusiastic customers to sales associates who primarily sell the products through social media. Using social media to create a dedicated client-consumer feedback loop is a strategy that other companies like Beachbody and Rodan + Fields employ successfully.
Monat is available for purchase in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. Recently there has been a growing number of consumers, especially in the United States, who have experienced adverse effects from using Monat products. Some reports claim scalp scabbing, sores, and balding. In May 2018, inspectors from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) visited B & R Products, a Monat manufacturing plant near Miami. The FDA report from this visit outlines unsanitary conditions. At least 11 lawsuits have been filed against Monat.
The Good News
At Hairline Ink, our team works with people who have tried various products to help mitigate the effects of hair loss. We understand how frustrating it is to lose your hair, and we also know how good it feels when you think you’ve found the “magic pill.” While we encourage people to pursue the solutions that they think are best, we understand that hair loss is a complicated process that is rarely reversed by using a new shampoo or other product. Easy solutions are seductive but usually leave consumers disappointed. If you are interested in finding a permanent and guaranteed solution to offset the appearance of hair loss, you may be a good candidate for scalp micropigmentation.
