Before I started using any of MONAT'S Hair Care Products, I should have done my homework! There is a Hair Quiz one can take and it's FREE on the MONAT's Site. If I had taken the quiz before purchasing any products, I would have known that the best shampoo for me was the Intense Repair Shampoo along with the Intense Repair Treatment Spray. Now, of course, I have been keeping up with the S3 Vitamin Supplements and I wouldn't trade them for anything!
The Intense Repair Shampoo requires that you wash your hair twice, leaving it on your scalp for two to three minutes each time. After towel-drying your hair, then it's time to spray on the Intense Repair Treatment and you don't have to rinse it out. Of course, you start with one section at a time making sure it's massage into your scalp.
After using both of these products, I saw more change than I would have expected. It's not like I didn't see any change in using the Black Shampoo, but this particular treatment shampoo made my hair feel more fuller. What's interesting is that it doesn't say on the bottle that it's adding fullness and body to your hair. It's performing its miracle change to one's scalp and perhaps that's why my hair is fuller. This shampoo really cleans one's scalp, especially for an older woman like myself. So, I have to say I'm pleased and look forward to using it again!!!
Here's my MONAT website if you want to take the FREE Hair Quiz to find what which hair care products work best for you!!!
An Amazing Miracle Supplement (Part Two)
As mentioned in part one, OptiMSM found in S3 MONAT’s Supplement Support System for Natural Hair Growth, not only helps to regrow hair, but it also treats osteoarthritis and joint pain. Surprisingly, this amazing miracle supplement also treats digestive problems, skin problems, lowers muscle pain, spasms, and helps the body adapt to stress.
When it comes to improving digestive problems, MSM can help rebuild the lining of the digestive tract and lower inflammation/allergic reactions to certain foods. It’s also useful for healing leaky gut syndrome since it can help stop particles from leaching out the gut through small junction openings, where they can enter the bloodstream and ignite an inflammatory response. This is due in part to the sulfur in an MSM supplement, which is important for digestion. But, in MONAT’s S3 Supplement Support System, the MSM is at optimum strength. That’s why it’s listed as OptiMSM.
Besides improving one’s digestion, MSM helps to repair skin health. Recent studies have indicated that MSM helps people to hold on to a youthful appearance, since it seems to help prevent wrinkles scar formation, dark spots and sun damage. Now, how is this possible? MSM is necessary for collagen production, and collagen is what helps keep skin from becoming saggy, wrinkled, cracked, and dry.
Using an MSM supplement helps us hold on to precious collagen and keratin because sulfur is required for the production of these “youthful” compounds. We lose collagen and healthy tissue as we get older, which I exactly why our skin tone and elasticity suffer.
Not only does MSM help to repair skin health, it does help to restore hair growth. For one struggling with thinning hair or balding, whether it’s from aging or premature aging, MSM has been shown to help boost both collagen and keratin levels, two nutrients we absolutely need to form new hair strands (and also rebuild strong nails and skin cells.)
It is obvious that MSM is a miracle supplement since it known for helping with so many health-related issues. This also includes helping one’s body adapt to stress. In today’s society, everyone deals with stress-related issues. It’s hard to take time to enjoy the simple things in life, such as enjoying a cup of coffee, smelling a flower, or taking in the beauty of a sparkling blue sky, and why is that? Well, life! Many of us are too busy with an active lifestyle. Sometimes, it can be so consuming that we really don’t have enough time for ourselves. Taking MSM can help to control how are body deals with stress. MSM helps boost our ability to heal and bounce back from exercise, stressful events, injuries, and even surgeries. Taking MSM before exercising, such as running, seems to reduce muscle damage and other markers of stress. It can also reduce fatigue felt after stressful events and about an upbeat mood, energy levels, and normal digestion.
Now, what if one doesn’t want to take an MSM supplement? Is MSM found in one’s diet? I will share information about MSM and food sources in part three.

OptMSM or commonly called, “Miracle Supplements,” is known for lower inflammation, fight the effects of stress and pain, raise immunity and increase energy levels. OptMSM found in MONAT’s S3 Supplement Support System for natural hair growth, not only helps to regrow one’s hair, give it body and a healthy luster, but it also treats literally dozens of illnesses, painful symptoms, and diseases.
OptMSM or Optimum Methyl Sulonyl Methane is an organic sulfur-containing compound that’s used to improve immune function, lower inflammation, and help restore healthy bodily tissue. MSM is also a well-known joint health supplement. It also naturally occurs in some green vegetables and other food products. Yet, I’ve been consuming a healthy diet of green vegetables for over a year and the health-benefits along with healthy hair, I didn’t really see, until I started taking MONAT’s S3 Supplement. I know that this supplement has helped me to get my curl back. https://www.facebook.com/kelley.oberne/videos/vb.511846917/10156213018836918/
The reason so many benefits are attributed to this MSM supplement is because MSM provides biologically active sulfur, which is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body and needed for many different critical bodily functions in a single day.
MSM is also used in conjunction with other anti-inflammatory supplements. MONAT GLOBAL has created a proprietary blend with MSM as one of its ingredients. That’s “why” the S3 by MONAT is so successful in helping individuals to regain hair loss.
I’m thrilled I began taking MONAT’s S3 Supplement Support System, since it contains OptMSM, a part of their proprietary blend for treating osteoarthritis and joint pain. Before my retirement from teaching, I had experienced a great deal of joint pain, and had difficulty in keeping up with my students. I went to see my PCM. He diagnosed me as having “osteoarthritis” in the both knees. Furthermore, he let me know my condition would only worsen with age. Oh, he was so wrong!
I attended physical therapy sessions for several months. I learned how to strengthened other parts of my leg to protect my knee. It was only a band aid treatment. Not one time did anyone mention to me about taking MSM.
MSM supplements are beneficial for helping the body form new joint and muscle tissue while lowering inflammatory responses that contribute to swelling and stiffness. An MSM supplement is a natural and effective anti-inflammatory because of how sulfur impacts the immune system and facilitates normal cellular activity. Sulfur needs to be present for our cells to release many byproducts and excess fluids that can accumulate and cause swelling/tenderness.
According to research, it can take 12 weeks or longer when taking MSM supplements to notice more improvement in pain, swelling, and joint mobility. This time line compares to when individuals began taking S3 MONAT Supplement Support System began to notice hair regrowth, a healthier head of hair. In other words, nothing happens overnight. But, when one knows what supplements can do for one’s health, is just requires a little patience and consistency to see those expected results.

Just because hair loss is not life-threatening does not mean it shouldn't be taken seriously. When one gets new hair growth, then one is not only giving his/her body what it needs, he/she is also receiving an overall effect in slowing down the aging process...
This oil is expensive, but you only need a little bit for it to do it's job...

I discovered that my hair needs the intensive treatment shampoo...hey...no joke there! My favorite MONAT product is the S3 supplements...so it was no wonder that this also came up. Find out about your hair...take the hair quiz
I wish I had known about our hair cycle; especially before I turned 40. As a 60-year-old, I missed 20 years and I can’t get that time back. Time, in which, I could have prevented the hair I’ve lost. Well, here’s what I discovered about our hair cycle. There are two major phases our hair goes through; the anagen and the telogen. During the anagen phase, the hair is actively growing. As our hair matures, it enters into a resting stage, the telogen phase. Then the hair bulb migrates outward and eventually is sloughed off. It is during this migratory phase that the stage is set for new hair to come in after the original hair is lost. Age, various diseases, and a wide variety of nutritional and hormonal factors influence the duration of our hair cycle.
Unfortunately, hair loss is a normal part of the aging process which usually begins by age 40. The rate of hair growth begins to slow down and new hairs are not replaced as quickly as old ones are lost. There is a hair pull test one can do to determine if one’s hair is more into the telogen phase than the anagen phase. This test is very simple for all one needs to do it take a few strands between the thumb and forefinger and pull gently. Hairs in the anagen phase remained rooted in place, while hairs in the telogen phase come out easily.
It’s important to know approximately how many hairs were pulled and the number that came out can indicate the percentage of hair follicles in a telogen state. For example, if 20 hairs were pulled and 2 came out, then the frequency of telogen hair follicles is 10 percent. As a rough guide, a 10 percent telogen frequency is excellent, up to 25 percent is typical, and over 35 percent is problematic.
Several months ago before I started using MONAT’s hair care products, especially its nutritional supplement for natural hair care growth, strands of my hair were easy to pull out. But, not now. After completing this hair pull test, not one strand fell out. My hair strands are stronger and have a different texture.
Hey, I'm getting my hair back...I'm using the Intensive Hair Shampoo with the SI Supplements from MONAT...since MONAT is offering a change to get shares into their company and a bonus... I decided to switch from being a VIP Customer to becoming a Market Partner...
Kelley went LIVE last night with Emiliee, concerning a new opportunity with MONAT. MONAT is offering shares with their company that pay quarterly dividends. Can you believe it! Well, I've just decided to go from VIP Customer to Market Partner. It's not much to pay for the beginner's kit and that's all one needs to get started. Besides, since I'm using their products, anyway, why not go for a higher discount for my own purchases. Well, of course, being a Market Partner will bring in an additional income and well for this retired teacher, I'm willing to give it a shot. Also, I want to learn more about their extensive product line, so I can give advice to others. That's the teacher in me!
I did three videos as an update to what is going on about my hair. I decided to wear a pink towel so viewers would know that this was a new set of videos. I'm truly grateful for sharing my findings regarding my hair. I'm glad that an older viewer shared her information about Monat and what is working well for her.
