New concerns over Monat hair products

As consumer complaints about hair loss and scalp sores were piling up across the country, the FDA sent inspectors to the Florida facility where Monat products are made, and a federal report shows inspectors found “insanitary conditions.” Darcy Spears reporting.

    My hair has never looked better & ive been using Monat for almost a year now. No complaints, yes it’s a little pricey but they’re the only products that work for me & my family! 😌

    Why would you use it on your 3 year old? Dear god🤦‍♀️

    I don’t know why that have something to do with monat, you can be allergic to anything you buy to the store too, they don’t even wanna listen, that why you have to take the hair and skin test before you buy anything from monat please stop talking bad about the company.

    Y’all have me STRESSED. I’ve been using Monat for 4-5 months and around the same time of starting it, I also got a new job working with animals but I’ve been getting hives nearly every single day. I- I don’t know if it’s from my new job or Monat lol. My hair is actually in great condition since using the brand but I just don’t know anymore after reading these comments 😂

    I used a sample that someone gave me about two times only and I noticed itchiness and flakiness on my scalp so I decided not to use it again. So glad I noticed it right away.

    Oh wow this video was great help! Someone on Instagram wanted me to partner up to sell this product! I will not be writing her back! I worked too hard for these curls and i don’t want to promote a scam!

  13. LiveAventura on October 8, 2020 at 7:36 pm

    Two years later and people still swear this product actually works and that it isn’t a pyramid scheme 😂😂 fucking clowns

  14. Darlene Faraone on October 8, 2020 at 7:37 pm

    I’ve been trying to communicate with this company for months to cancel my account due to very poor communications and terrible hair loss. They make it impossible to communicate with them since they are in China.

  15. Samantha Simmons on October 8, 2020 at 7:38 pm

    people wonder how this has happened to some and not others and don’t realize how EVERY ONE IS DIFFERENT!!!?????

    just like how one person can eat peanuts and the other person can’t.

  16. Eugenia Aguilera on October 8, 2020 at 7:39 pm

    Antes no existia monat,y todos se contagiaban de soriasis,y tiña,y el pelo se le caia a volcanes,y nadie dijo pantene,ni head&shoulder..

    Its a Sham!

  18. Ariana Katsigiannis on October 8, 2020 at 7:41 pm

    Losing my hair we think it’s because of hair shampoo

  19. Susan on October 8, 2020 at 7:43 pm

    There will always be nay sayers for anything good. I will never believe anything on Fox News . Don’t believe this garbage

  20. Warfare Octopus on October 8, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    Pyramid scheme shampoo

  21. The Young Widow Life on October 8, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    Now they’re in trouble with the Florida Attorney General. They had to sign a voluntary agreement with them and now,effective 9/14/2020, they can literally make NO medical claims at all, other than their shampoo washes your hair and they have to refund anyone who asks for one.. All the documents are on the Florida Attorney General website. Google and read them, it’s 33 pages long of things they can no longer do.. Also, if you see any of them making any claims at all, report them to the AG because they’re going to be watching them very closely. And whatever you do, don’t use their products unless you want to lose your hair.

  22. Angie Erickson on October 8, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    I love it

  23. Kristin Noti on October 8, 2020 at 7:50 pm

    Only someone who has respect will stop pumping MLM products thru everyone they can will stop because they are destructive and actually care. Kudos to the people, especially her who went on the news, who stand up and say people are more important than $$

  24. Jane Doe Deville on October 8, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    What’s the update for 2020😝 anyone?

  25. kelly darling on October 8, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    My hair has been falling out too! And my mother’s! My mother also has scabs. on her scalp. I’m so pissed that a family member would be selling this to us..how do they not know???
    On a lighter note I will be using this product instead of a bikini wax!!!
    No real lighter note..I now know how chemo patients feel about hair loss. I never knew how devastating it is!

  26. Jason Simoneau on October 8, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    I use Monat and my hair is better than ever?

  27. Terri Dudley on October 8, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    I have been using the product for a few months, went in for a hair cut (hair dresser has been cutting my hair for over 15 years), and she noticed that my hair was more "dense". I have VERY thin hair, and not much of it, so I am loving this product!!!!

  28. Avery Muir on October 8, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    I knew this was a scam before it was a scam. Jeez.

  29. Jane Smith on October 8, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    MY next door neighbor is selling this unreal ,thank god i didn’t purchase this, its very expensive and they try to sucker you in.

  30. Asiel Cuello on October 8, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    Your hair falls beacause you put to much

  31. Claire Cathleen on October 8, 2020 at 7:53 pm

    I used monat for 8 months straight and it made my hair fall out I’m still struggling to grow it back a year later

  32. ShotgunSixBarrel on October 8, 2020 at 7:55 pm

    Hmmm, I used it, Monat Black, i think it took about 6 months to finish the bottle, my hair was fine, actually looked/felt better. I was gonna buy more, but now I don’t know.

  33. Rosio Flores on October 8, 2020 at 7:55 pm

    Monar seller: “ Now you need to use this product worth $150 for hair fall” 😌

  34. Donald Ferguson on October 8, 2020 at 7:56 pm

    Ok so I have 1 question. I have been using this product for years. And I have never seen or heard of Monet hair regrowth shampoo and or conditioner. Except hear on this particular Google web search engine. Which is tied to Amazon. Also suppliers if this product are not allowed to sell or advertise their Monet hair care products on Amazon or Google web sites. I find it hard to believe a FORTUNE 500 company with yrly earnings.. of 4.8 million dollars annual gross sales. Slandering and false testimony is called defimation of character. Whether it be a person or a product. People do not fooled by miss leading statements. I am willing to bet half of these comments are made by cyber bots.. Not actual people. I am willing to bet. Google or Amazon has no clue whom the 2 original founders of Monet even are. Remember defamation of a character is not protected under the freedom of press or speech. I am not affiliated in any shape or form to Monet. Nor do I have anything to gain by my claims and or comments. Thank you and goodnight.

  35. Elena Vaičiulytė on October 8, 2020 at 8:01 pm

    Seriously? Some of them has a bunch of Monat products in the background 😀

    I can not understand why these products still there if they are so bad 😀

  36. Tania Marie on October 8, 2020 at 8:02 pm

    I get hit up all the time for this crap..even my own stylist. No way I would use this expensive bs

    So sad 🙁

  40. Janie Jones on October 8, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    First I would like to say, I applaud  you and I thank you for your expertise and efforts in displaying your work for these companies as you so diligently submit demontrations, classes and tutorials of their products to help the consumer   in making their choices in purchasing from these companies.

    We as consumers trust in the Youtube platform and products that are advertised through your channel from these companies who reach out for your help in selling their products to the public. However,  the hair that the company send to you to review, will not come to the consumer the same way, nor will it come as adverised when they pay their hard earned money to buy it.

    For months I searched and observed wig companies hoping to find good quality hair for my clients and came across Afsisterwigs. The reviews for this company  were astronomical until I considered the facts. i didnt look into buying from them right away because i wanted to see other reviews from others and their outcome who actually bought  and installed the wig. 
    The demonstrations i saw on some of the top channels on YouTube influenced me greatly. I wont give out their names beause my message is not a positive one and I highly respect them, their work skill and quality expertise.

    I am not a celebrity, nor do i have a Youtube channel. I am a regular working lady looking to make a living from my trade as a certified licensed hair stylist. Although I pay the same money for the wig i ordered from Afsisterwigs as a celebrity or someone with their own  Youtube channel would, I end up not getting the same quality hair. Now why do you think that is? 

    The Afsisterwig that I purchased was the yaki full lace skin melt, small size 12in 150 density $219. The picture advertised on their website with the same stats is longer and beautiful, however I knew i would get a shorter version for the price that i paid.

    When I received my order I tore into that package like a cat on a hot tin roof scratching a hole to escape the heat. That’s just how eager i was to get that wig out of the package to get it customized and ready for my customer.

    When I took it out of the plastic, my bottom lip dropped to my knees in horror. I took a deep breath, sat down to collect myself and wrote to the company the very same day I received the wig asking, " Is this a joke? Am I being punked?? I explained to the company what the wig looked like and sent them  pictures.

    The hair was lifeless. it was layered throughout the hair with no gloss or shine.

    About 4 inches of the hair on the wig was pin needle straight. When I ask if I could return it for another with the same value, they told me that it would be too cost affected. Now mind you, the lace was still in tact, no plucking or bleaching, nor were there any products used on it.  It was ready to be sent straight back to the company. The wig was so awful l asked for a refund since they didn’t want to replace it. When I sent the pictures showing the jacked up peice of wig they sent to me, all that I got from Afsisterwigs at that time was an apology. They apologized that I wasn’t happy with my purchase and offered me 15% of the $219 I spent on the wig.
    I was so angry my eye balls smoked from the boiling steam in my eye sockets.
    I reached out to the company on multiple ocassions to request help with an exchange or my refund. Why they couldnt see the proof in the pictures was beyond me. My goodness even Mr. Magoo could see that the wig they sent  was a jacked up peice of junk!

    Later they offered me $45 and a15% discount on my next purchase. I was not satisfied but agreed to getting something back from my hard earned money

    Afsisterwigs is not the only company taking advantage of consumers. if you are not a celebrity or have your own channel  on Youtube, then look to get the the peice of junk meant for their gabage dump.

    Contrary to their effort to settle I feel that I got screwed. The Afsisterwig company offered me and advertised in their ad bouncy hair, yaki straight, skin melt full lace, 150 density, soft hair that they also advertise in all of their marketing material.  I on the other hand did not received the hair quality hair they advertised.

    In my opinion, Afsisterwigs
    falsely advertised the presentation and quality of their product that I paid ($219) for. 
    I would rather have had a refund or to receive a wig  that would be comparable to what they advertised. But to no avail.

    Afsisterwigs falsly adertised and misrepresented the product that they supply. They provide hair to celebrities  and the people they work with who own their channels  on YouTube and it appears that they are sending these individuals a superior quality of wigs  than they send to, me, we, you, the consumers.

    I still have the pictures of the wig the same day I took it out the box.

  41. Marcelle on October 8, 2020 at 8:05 pm

    People who sell this , oil and LuLaRoe are the most idiotic and annoying people on earth.
    That saved me from Monat ( hairloss ) hideous clothes and smelling like a sack of potpourri.

  42. Nicole Bal on October 8, 2020 at 8:08 pm

    My hair started falling out (worse than the normal with my thyroid & vitamin D issues) started monat several months ago. Was told it wouldn’t cause my hair to fall out. Increased my vitamin D and had labs done. Fast forward to today. Used the shampoo twice as recommended & like I’ve been doing. My hair literally came out in clumps! 3 huge handfuls!!! And now my scalp is burning. I’m DONE!!!!

  43. ll l on October 8, 2020 at 8:10 pm

    What sucks is that I see so many women getting sucked into them without a clue

  44. britt on October 8, 2020 at 8:11 pm

    *What kind of dumb bitch puts this shit in her child’s hair without a professional opinion?*

  45. Frances Caraballo on October 8, 2020 at 8:12 pm

    Thid is all BS. They’re paying these people to say crap about Monat to make it look bad so people will buy from another company. They do that to compete..

  46. Lonnie 1Love on October 8, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    That’s a damn shame , these people need to be damn in prison

  47. Michelle Cherival on October 8, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    I don’t believe nothing come from the mainstream media mouth.
    And all these white women complaining are just haters…
    My hair and my daughter hair is doing wonderful. Grew back and I love monat products. They natural vegan and organic…. let the haters talk🤗🏃🏿‍♀️

  48. Ana Lu on October 8, 2020 at 8:14 pm

    It’s Pyramid.

  49. Sarayy Martinez on October 8, 2020 at 8:15 pm

    lost my hair even more with these products. it was my mistake to not search up reviews of these products.

  50. Veronica Lee on October 8, 2020 at 8:15 pm

    Do not use Monat! I have been using the Black Shampoo+Conditioner for less than 2 months and have lost chunks of hair.
