Now that you’re on your MONAT journey to fabulous hair, are you paying closer attention to your mane? Are you noticing a few hairs on your pillowcase? What about in the shower? Are you worried you might be shedding too much hair? Are you certain it’s shedding and not actually breakage? No need to fret! We’re here to explain the difference between hair shedding and hair breakage.
The Skinny on Hair Shedding
- Given birth.
- Lots of stress (Caring for a loved one who is sick, going through a divorce, losing a job).
- High fever.
- Undergone an operation.
- Recovering from an illness.
- Stopped taking birth-control pills
- Mother moved in… (just kidding… ok maybe not!)
Most people notice the excessive hair shedding a few months after a stressful event. As your body readjusts, the excessive shedding stops. Within a few months, the hair should regain its normal fullness. And with the help of MONAT’s naturally based, hair treatment systems, you can rest assured knowing you’re doing everything you can to prevent hair loss.
Now About Hair Breakage
- Use Replenish Masque a few times per week (2-3 times is ideal).
- Stretch your blowout as long as you can, as the natural oils from your scalp are healthy for your hair. If you must wash your hair daily, be sure to treat it with Rejuveniqe to keep the hair follicles coated with hydrating ingredients.
- When hair is wet, use a naturally based leave-in conditioner like Restore and comb hair gently to avoid breakage.
- Try to keep chemical salon services limited to one at a time. Multiple chemical services (like coloring and relaxing) is more likely to cause stress on the hair shaft.
- Over processed hair is brittle. So if you must color process your hair, make sure to add moisture with a regular deep-conditioning regimen.
- Take a hair supplement like S3, Supplement Support System, to nourish hair from the inside out. Each of the clinically proven ingredients in S3 work together to replenish the body of possible nutrient deficiencies that could be contributing to hair loss and shedding.
- Avoid heat styling as much as possible.
- Eat a diet rich in protein. Protein can repair weak spots in the hair shaft, warding off breakage. But be forewarned: Too much protein can make the hair brittle, and too much moisture makes strands too flexible. It’s important to find the right balance of moisture and protein.

In November of 2015 our daughter Amanda said “dad you must use this Monat treatment system.” I have been balding for the past 5 years with a 3-4 inch bald spot on the top of my head that was only getting bigger. The first time I used it I was sold. My hair felt incredible but never expected the coming results. I was so pleased and proud of my success, that I shared it with all of my friends on my personal email contact list. This was my Christmas present to them as most are younger than I and can benefit even more.
At my first hair cut in February, 2016, only 3 months later, I was told by the barber that my balding had “stopped dead in its tracks” and that I had “an enormous amount of new growth with dark roots.” I had noticed that my hair seemed darker and now I was understanding why. I was still on my first bottle of Monat Men’s 2+1 as very little is needed and I don’t always shampoo with each shower. Not only is my scalp no longer itchy or irritated, but I am left with a full manageable head of hair. I can now go on average 4-5 days between shampoos where before the build-up from previous products required more frequent washing.
Our youngest daughter Amber said “Dad you are a sensation on Facebook with your hair!” I jokingly said that I was a self-appointed “HEAD” spokesman for Monat. My wife and I are both very shy with Facebook, as our friends can attest to, as we both like our privacy. I do, however, see the benefits of sharing a good story or product.
The good Lord said that it is better to give than to receive and all I am doing is giving my story and advice on a great product without trying to sound like Bob Barker from The Price is Right. Like I told Amanda after giving her thanks, was that this product will sell itself, all she and her growing team will have to do is find someone to try it. I want to thank Monat as not only are I and my wife enjoying the products, but I am told that it is also safe enough for our young grandchildren.
Health Canada is recommending Canadians check the labels of their skin and hair care products and cosmetics for potentially irritating ingredients: methylisothiazolinone and methylchloroisothiazolinone.
These two ingredients, when both present in a “leave-on” product, can cause rashes, itching, burning or blisters in some people, according to a press release from Health Canada. The risk is specifically when both ingredients are present, says the department, and when they’re in a product like a lotion, deodorant, sunscreen or makeup that is left on the skin as opposed to something that is washed off – like a shampoo.
Symptoms can occur each time someone uses a product with both of these ingredients, and can get worse with repeated uses.
If you notice any sensitivity or allergic reaction, you should discontinue use of the product and avoid other products that contain these two ingredients, said Health Canada.
Methylisothiazolinone and methylchloroisothiazolinone are used as preservatives.
Both are still found in some rinse-off drugstore products, such as Pantene Pro-V daily moisture renewal hydrating shampoo and conditioner, and Olay Ultra Moisture vanilla indulgence body wash. “Based on current information, there are no identified risks with the use of MI/MCI in rinse-off products when concentrations are at or below levels currently permitted in cosmetics,” wrote the department.
All leave-on products containing both ingredients that are intended for use by children under the age of three should be off store shelves by June 14, 2016, said Health Canada. All other leave-on products that contain both methylisothiazolinone and methylchloroisothiazolinone should be gone from Canada after December 31.
In the meantime, Health Canada says consumers should keep checking for the ingredients. You can also report adverse reactions to cosmetics, non-prescription and natural health products to the department.

It’s the news anyone suffering from male or female pattern baldness and alopecia have been waiting for – and that wig manufacturers have been dreading. A cure for baldness could finally be on the way.
Scientists have finally unlocked the secrets of growing complex skin cells, complete with hair, and implanting them in skin. Scientists have already transplanted the skin successfully into living mice. Dr Takashi Tsuji of the Riken Centre for Developmental Biology said, ‘With this new technique, we have successfully grown skin that replicates the function of normal tissue.
‘Our study contributes to the development of bioengineering technologies that will enable future regenerative therapies for patients with burns, scars, and alopecia [baldness].’
‘We are coming ever closer to the dream of being able to recreate actual organs in the lab for transplantation, and also believe that tissue grown through this method could be used as an alternative to animal testing of chemicals.’
You can’t open a newspaper or magazine without seeing advertisements for hair loss solutions for men, but very few options are offered to women who are losing their hair. Over two-thirds of women suffer hair loss, and hair loss can be quite extreme—from thinning to bald patches. Thankfully, few women go totally bald like men do, but there is nothing more distressing than watching your lovely locks fall out in abundance. Topical solutions for women rarely reverse hair loss. And the drugs that are available have been predominantly researched in men and do not address the underlying reasons for hair loss in women.
The three main reasons for hair loss in women are: low iron, low thyroid and not enough minerals in the diet.
Low Iron and Hair Loss in Women
One of the least known causes of hair loss is low iron. You do not have to be anemic to lose your hair. Your doctor may advise you that your iron levels are normal, but we know that low normal levels of iron will cause huge hair loss. We see this in women after childbirth and in women during the perimenopausal years when heavy periods may occur. Simply being a woman of childbearing age automatically puts you at risk of low iron. Up to 60 percent of women have low iron and it is often undiagnosed. Due to higher iron requirements as a result of menstruation, women need 20 milligrams of elemental iron daily yet most of us are only getting 8 mg per day from our diet. Now that we are not eating as much red meat, even postmenopausal women and seniors are suffering from low iron.
Other common symptoms of low iron:
- No energy/fatigue
- Pale skin
- Breathlessness upon even minor exertion
- Dark under-eye circles
- Thin, brittle or peeling nails
- Restless legs
- Cold hands and feet
Don’t Believe a Normal Iron Test
If your doctor tells you your iron is normal, ask for the test results. There are two iron blood tests: hemoglobin and ferritin. For hemoglobin, the test range suggested as normal by your doctor is 117–160 g/L for women. Yet we know that a hemoglobin below 140 g/L will cause significant hair loss. Ferritin, which is your iron storage, has a suggested test range of 15–160 ug/L; but to prevent hair loss and ensure thick hair, your reading should be above 40 ug/L.
Hair follicles contain ferritin. When ferritin stores decline in the hair follicle, it affects the ability of the hair to grow causing non-pigmented fine hairs to develop. These hairs are often mistaken for androgenic alopecia. Low ferritin also causes the hair to change structure become dry, not hold the curl or color well and break easily. Hair loss can be gradual, a general thinning out over the years, or it can be sudden and startling.
Iron supplements represent another challenge because you will want an iron that does not constipate or cause digestive distress but is effective and fast acting. When choosing iron, you will want a liquid iron. And, better yet, choose one in a liposomal technology. A liposomal iron is one where the iron is trapped in a protective bubble that guides it through the acidic digestive tract to the intestine, where it is absorbed effectively and swiftly. Tests conducted on liposomal iron have found that, two hours after ingestion, its absorption is five times greater than ferrous fumarate, the standard doctor-prescribed iron in tablets. And after 12 hours, the total absorption of liposomal iron was double that of all other forms of iron tested. You will need 1–3 teaspoons of liquid liposomal iron (10–30 mg of elemental iron) for fast results. Most women notice hair regrowth in as little as six weeks with this type of iron.
Low Thyroid Affects Up to 23 Percent of Women
Like low iron, hypothyroid or low thyroid hormone is an undiagnosed epidemic in Canada. Twenty-three percent of women are currently taking thyroid medication and up to 30 percent of women may also have subclinical or mild hypothyroidism whereby their thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is within the “normal” range of 0.5–5.5 IU/mL yet they still experience symptoms. Thinning hair, hair loss and loss of eyebrow hair are common symptoms of low thyroid. A deficiency in these hormones may also result in some of the following symptoms:
- Dry skin
- Weight gain or difficulty losing weight
- Sensitivity to cold
- Menstrual problems/heavy periods
- Fatigue or lethargy
It is important that you ask your doctor what your TSH test result number is because although it may be “normal,” research has shown that if it is greater than 2.0 IU/mL, chances are it is low thyroid that is contributing to your hair loss. There are many things you can do to support your thyroid. Read my free online book, An A-Z Woman’s Guide to Vibrant Health under the Low Thyroid section at www.hormonehelp.com. In addition, for those who are either on thyroid medication or who have low thyroid but are not on thyroid hormone, there are key nutrients that can help support thyroid function. These include potassium iodide, tyrosine, ashwagandha, gugguls and pantothenic acid. Look for a combination formula and take two capsules with breakfast. If you are on thyroid medication, take your medication first thing on an empty stomach and then take this supplement at breakfast. Once the underlying low thyroid is resolved and the TSH drops below 2, hair starts to grow back in six to eight weeks.
Mind Your Minerals
It is a rare person who eats the recommended seven to 10 half-cup servings of fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. Most of us eat only two to three servings a day and, on top of this, the modern lifestyle is rampant with “nutrient robbers”— e.g. stress, medications, the birth control pill, smoking, alcohol— that further deplete our nutritional stores. As a result, deficiencies in the key nutrients required for healthy hair are rampant. Zinc, silicon and selenium, for example, are critical to hair growth yet most people do not get enough.
Everybody should be on a multivitamin with minerals to prevent the nutritional deficiencies associated with not only hair loss but also chronic disease. A good quality multivitamin with minerals is a nutritional insurance policy and should contain 15 mg each of zinc and silicon and 100 mcg of plant-based selenomethionine. For women who are exhausted at the thought of yet another capsule, look for a multivitamin with minerals in powdered packets. Mix it into your morning protein smoothie, or shake well with water or juice at mealtime.
Start today with liquid iron, a thyroid-support formula and a great multivitamin with minerals and your hair will start to regain its youthful bounty. It is not normal to look down at the bottom of the tub and see nothing but hair swirling around the drain. Investigate these three common causes and your plumber will be as thrilled as you are with your thicker, fuller hair.
