Pretty in pink: First impressions of Monday haircare

I love a good aesthetic brand.

I always say I’m a sucker for packaging. When it comes to choosing a book or even a bottle of wine, if it catches my eye, then you better believe it’s a selling feature for me.

As a lover for pink and aesthetic packaging, as soon as I saw Monday Haircare, I was instantly sold.  You may have seen their bottles all over your Instagram feed, and if you know what I’m talking about, you probably get the hype.

Monday Haircare is from New Zealand and in Canada you can find it Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart Canada.  Because of that it’s relatively affordable, which is part of the brand’s whole image.  They want to deliver luxury haircare but at reasonable and attainable prices. In addition to that, their formulas are free of SLS and parabens, and are cruelty-free and vegan. Their bottles, which look stunning displayed in your shower, are also 100 per cent recyclable.

Monday Haircare Smooth line

The brand has four different lines, Volume (for thin or fine hair), Smooth (curly, coily, or frizzy hair), Moisture (dry and coarse hair), and Gentle (for hair/scalp that needs some extra loving). The brand recently sent me their PR box which contained their Moisture line, as well as some fun little goodies, to try out.

Their bottles come in large 354 ml (C$7.47) and 796 ml (C$14.97) sizes, so these will definitely last you a while. They also have a pump top so you don’t have to mess around with the lids (this is a major pet peeve of mine on shampoo and conditioner since I find I always drop the lid in the shower in the rush of putting it back on and making sure the product doesn’t spill out of my hands).

Monday Haircare Smooth Shampoo Monday Haircare Smooth Conditioner

The Moisture line contains coconut oil in them, which is nourishing for both hair and scalp, as well as hydrolyzed rice protein, which is known to promote collagen within the scalp and reinforce hair strands to add strength.

First impressions were good on this one but I wouldn’t say my hair was any more soft than the other haircare lines I use. I also prefer using a purple or blonde shampoo/conditioner as well, but these are good to have handy in my shower as well.  Plus, I’m not gonna lie, I think I’ll keep them in there solely based on the fact that they just look so darn good in there.

Have you tried Monday Haircare?

Please note, products sent by PR. All opinions are my honest own.
