Vegan Hair Growth Products – Do They Really Work?

This is not a sponsored post. I am writing this post based on my own experiences. I only post about products I actually use and would recommend them to friends and family! Read on for my honest review.

Hair loss and hair thinning have been hot topics lately, haven’t they? Or maybe I’m just getting older and now at the life stage where it’s commonly discussed between girlfriends. If you don’t know, I experienced postpartum hair loss firsthand and have always had dry, brittle, fine hair that “just wouldn’t grow”. So I not only see how it hurts other women’s confidence, but I felt that myself. Of course, there are more reasons other than postpartum to use hair growth products. If you suffer from hormone imbalances, alopecia, thyroid diseases, autoimmune disorders, PCOS, or other health-related problems you could be seeing thinning areas. Even just from aging! Did you know that according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), female pattern hair loss affects about 50 million men and 30 million women in the U.S.? Or if you’re young, you might just have naturally thin, fine hair (like me!), hair loss from wearing extensions. You simply want thicker, fuller hair!


My Experience with Vegan & “Professional” Products

I grew up in my family-owned Salon & Spa, so I was raised on professional haircare products. Products that were supposed to deliver results because they were “professional”. Yet for 20+ years, I had dry, brittle hair that wouldn’t grow past my collarbone. Therefore I wore extensions for most of my young adult life. 

The professional products I used did absolutely nothing – or I guess I should say they didn’t do enough. It wasn’t until I saw countless women post before and afters that I realized I could have good hair. It wasn’t my hair that was the problem, it was the products I was using. 

So I gave the products they were using a shot. I mean, at this point what did I have to lose? I just wanted long, healthy hair and the professional products I used my entire life weren’t doing the job. Enter Monat.

Monat is a vegan and cruelty-free company. They are a global leader in naturally based, anti-aging haircare, skincare, and wellness. They have a huge array of products that I highly recommend for lash, brow & hair growth. These products are clinically proven to work, and I have had my own personal success from using the products.

Intense Repair Clinical Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner


This vegan hair thickening shampoo and conditioner uses plant-based ingredients: rosemary oil, red clover, and of course, Monat’s staple ingredient Rejuvenique. Studies have shown that when used topically, rosemary oil can stimulate hair growth and possibly reduces the effects of DHT. DHT is the main cause of hair loss. Red clover is another ingredient that can lower DHT while also helping to soothe the scalp as an anti-inflammatory. Rejuvenique is a blend of 13+ natural plant and essential oils rich in omega fatty acids, antioxidants, and nutrients known for anti-aging properties. But what really makes this ingredient amazing is that its molecules are small enough to penetrate through all 3 layers of the hair strand and follicle to deliver results. 

The IR Clinical Thickening Shampoo is an uplifting cleansing experience for thicker, fuller-looking hair. But when used with the IR Clinical Thickening Conditioner, both of these products fortify weakened hair to defend against hair fall and create stronger hair. Its clinically developed formula thickens hair upon repeated use. It also detangles and moisturizes for radiant, fuller hair.

Intense Repair Clinical Thinning Defense Serum


What is the point of working on thicker hair if your hair is thinning, right? The IR Clinical Thinning Defense Serum contains a blend of melatonin, caffeine, and bioactive D-biotin. Studies have found that when used topically, caffeine and melatonin can stimulate hair growth and reduce the effects of DHT. D-biotin is also known as vitamin B7, which is necessary for healthy hair growth. 

This serum is used as a daily scalp treatment. I typically do it as a part of my nighttime routine. I simply run the doppler along my scalp and massage it in. In the clinical study, 92% of people saw less hair fallout and a majority of people noticed thicker, fuller-looking hair in just 60 days.

So do these Products Really Work? 

These products are clinically proven to work. But in my own experience – YES! These products increase the speed at which hair grows, and the hair that comes in is stronger and is actually thicker hair. You may notice that after just one wash your hair is softer and more manageable, but peak results will show in 60 days.

Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum

Are you tired of paying for lash extensions and ruining your natural lashes too? Don’t worry, I have a naturally-based vegan solution for that too. With Monat’s Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum, you can enhance the appearance of brows and lashes daily! This serum is clinically proven to strengthen lashes and brows while conditioning. It’s dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested to improve lash length by up to 8% and lash volume by 20% in as little as 28 days.

Does it work? 

YES! Not only is it clinically proven to work, but its worked for me. I noticed that the length of my lashes were longer, but also the spots that were damaged from years of wearing extensions came back quicker than normal and made my eyelashes look fuller! Other lash growth products (like R&F) irritated my eyes to the point where I wanted to claw my eyes out and had to stop using them. I’m happy to say that this serum doesn’t irritate my eyes! 

switching to vegan hair care products made my hair thicker, stronger & longer

If you’ve seen my Instagram profile, you’ve seen my before & after firsthand. I’ve only been on this line 9 months, but started to notice the undeniable changes in my hair after just 60 days. Because of my own success with these products, I wanted to share them with all of my friends and family. If you’re like I was and thought your dry, brittle, thin hair could never improve – try Monat for 30 days risk-free. I promise you won’t regret it <3
