Little did I know that having kids, plus aging, meant saying bye to my hair. When my thyroid system crashed in 2008, after the birth of my second son, my hair not only began falling out but also stopped growing and started breaking off.
My once full long head of dirty blonde locks was gone. In its place was thin, brittle hair that not only wouldn’t grow, but would fall out and break off in chunks. Especially around my hair line. As my hair would fall out I would be left with bald spots on my temples. As the hair would grow back, I would have short unruly hairs, that would only grow and then fall out again. So frustrating!
When my hair would finally grow long enough to reach my shoulders it would start breaking off. My hair stylist, Stefanie, diagnosed me with “self eating hair.” At one of my visits with her, she showed me what literally looked like a shark bite out of the back of my hair. She had to cut it all off and I left the salon in tears.
I have tried everything to fix this hair loss problem. New straightening irons, new blow dryers, new brushes. I’ve tried supplements like Biotin and Prenatal vitamins. I’ve tried new silk pillow cases and I even wore a silk bonnet to bed! My husband hated it by the way. Nothing worked!
I first found Monat treatment systems on Facebook when my cousin, who is also a hair stylist, started posting pictures of people with real results of growing their hair back. I was skeptical, but I trust my cousin, so I decided to ask her about it. Sure enough. Monat has a system of Shampoo and Spray that not only stimulates hair growth but makes the hair healthier as well.
I ordered it right away and began using the Monat Let It Grow system on January 30, 2017. The results have been life changing! Not only did my hair start to grow, but it became thicker, shinier, and stopped breaking.
Check out these before and afters, and see for yourself:
