It's just hair, but...

It's just hair, but...

For years now, I've been on a mission to keep as many toxic chemicals out of our home as possible. The more I read about the links between commonly use products and many chronic and serious diseases, the more motivated I've been to limit my family's exposure to those things. We've gradually switched our toothpaste and shampoo, soap and household cleaners, health remedies and food storage containers—all on the quest to live live healthier lives. (A couple great resources for quickly figuring out how safe your stuff is: the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Database, and the Think Dirty app!) Most of the time, I've been just as happy (or more so) with the alternatives I've found as I was before.

But even long before going natural, I never loved my hair products, and sadly that didn't change with the switch. And it wasn't for lack of trying. I think I've probably purchased several hundred different shampoos and conditioners in my lifetime. But I've had frizz and flyaways, oiliness and dryness, sticky residue and dullness, and more often than not my fine hair has ended up twisted into a bun, often with a headband or wrap for extra coverage from the eyes of the world. 

So when my friend Angie started talking about some new products she was using, and how much she absolutely loved them, I was a little skeptical that they'd really be so different from anything else I've ever tried, but I paid attention. She started posting some before and after photos of her hair that amazed me, and I figured why not just try it.
Well, has MONAT greatly exceeded my expectations. I've only been using it for about a month now, and already I'm so much happier with my hair. And the biggest change over a longer period of time, as past damage really starts to repair—I really can't wait to see how healthy and changed my hair is a few months from now! 

Yes, it's just hair, but wouldn't it be nice if it would just look good and do what we want it to do? I feel like that's actually in my grasp now thanks to these products! 

Now this is something that really surprised me: I had basically decided that network marketing was not for me and that was that. I was more than cool with buying from friends and supporting their businesses if it was something I needed/wanted, but I just felt that selling though any direct sales company wasn't for me.
But the MONAT business opportunity kept nagging at the back of mind. I was seeing the genuine, non-annoying way Angie shared about her business on social media, including what an incredible financial blessing it had been for her family in just a few months of doing it. For whatever reason, I just couldn't shake it. Over about a month, my husband and I would have conversations about it and I could come up with fewer and fewer reasons not to try it. With our fourth little one on the way in a few months, and me needing to take maternity leave and then less work for a while even after that, another stream of income—even a small one—would take so much pressure and stress off. So we went for it, and less than two weeks ago I became a MONAT Market Partner. 

So if you wash your hair, I've got something for you! ;)

MONAT products can be ordered from me right here: http://hannahmayo.mymonat.com
There's a pretty big lineup there, so if you want to chat about would work best for your unique hair, email me at itsjusthairhannah@gmail.com. 

I also have a group on Facebook, where I'll share the progress of my hair, information about how to use the products, giveaways and monthly promos, etc. Just search for "It's Just Hair with Hannah Mayo" and request to join, or click here!
There's a flash sale happening this weekend (until Monday the 22nd) and I also have a giveaway for dry shampoo going on until the end of the month!

So there it is—the official intro of my new little venture! I was slightly nervous to share this at first because of all the stigmas and negative ideas that tend to surround network marketing. But just know, I'm determined to be different—authentic and non-pushy. I'm not going to randomly message you about it, or add anyone to the group who isn't specifically interested, or post incessantly about this. I'm just going to be here, increasingly loving my hair and helping with whatever you might need!
