Happy MONDAY, friends! It’s been a while since I’ve done a review, so let’s get back to the entire reason I started this space in the first place, starting with my MONDAY hair care review.
To begin, I like what MONDAY stands for in that they are creating inclusive beauty products at affordable prices ($6.99 at Target and Amazon) available to all. Their packaging is so chic and absolutely fits my aesthetic, but is a pretty bottle enough to make you go out and buy a bottle of shampoo and conditioner?
MONDAY Hair Care Review: Volume Shampoo + Conditioner
What first attracted me to MONDAY hair care was obviously the bottle. The baby pink is eye catching and totally my vibe. After reading about the brand, I began learning more about their ingredients and that they are sustainability-minded. And they are pretty new to the US, so that’s exciting. Let’s get to it…
The MONDAY volume shampoo is actually my least favorite products of the two that I have tried. I wanted so badly to love it, but the smell was very “swampy” and “chemical” smelling to me. I also didn’t feel like it really got my hair that clean. This could be because the products contain no SLS, parabens or sulphates. I’m used to getting that really sulphate-loaded suds with my other shampoos, so this took some getting used to. I learned that if I washed twice I would achieve the cleanse that I was after.
The MONDAY volume conditioner is my favorite of the two products. The smell is actually amazing and left my hair smelling so great. Because it’s designed to be a volumizing shampoo, I didn’t notice any residue after conditioning and I was able to achieve more of my natural wavy style after each use. The product is very creamy, but having long thick hair, I did find that I had to use quite a bit to get that softness I was after.
Tip: Use a little as an after-shower leave in conditioner for extra softness.
My daughters have been loving these in place of their kids hair care products, so I will continue to purchase them for them. Overall, I think the volume collection was probably not the best choice for my hair type. I am actually really excited to try the SMOOTH collection and since they are at Target for $6.99 each, I’ll pick some. up with my next order.
