Hair Damage Before and After: Victoria's Story

Diagnose your Hair Damage

Whether colour and chemical treatments, hot styling tools or environmental aggressors are the culprit, damaged hair can manifest in a number of ways. Damaged hair results in cracks forming in the outer layer of the hair shaft called the cuticle, causing it to lift and hair to appear dull and frizzy, or even resulting in further deterioration, breakage and hair loss.

It is essential to identify the signs and science behind your damage as an essential part of your healthy-hair repair journey.

MONPURE’s Foundations of Hair Repair

MONPURE’s results-driven range features a range of pioneering ingredients and solutions that are scientifically proven to not only shield and protect against multiple forms of damage, but also repair affected hair follicles and rebuild the structural integrity and condition of the hair by focusing on the condition and health of the scalp.

MONPURE’s Vegan Keratin is an essential ingredient to reinforce damaged hair’s structural integrity. Keratin is the protein naturally found in hair, forming the building-blocks of its structure. Vegan keratin is a moisturising humectant that conditions and hydrates the scalp, while also holding anti-irritant benefits. This vegan alternative also protects, strengthens and repairs fragile strands, as well as boosting shine, smoothness and elasticity.

MONPURE’s pioneering ingredient, Vegan Silk Peptides, are revolutionary in their ability to protect and repair damaged hair.

As a vegan alternative to silk peptides, vegan silk peptides fortify hair from the root. It delivers a physical and breathable barrier to the hair and scalp, protecting against external aggressors such as pollution, sea or chlorinated water, irritants and bacterial adhesion. Vegan silk peptides improve carbon particle removal up to 26%, improve hair colour protection by 35%, and repair thermal damage by 72%. The application of vegan silk peptides yields scientifically-proven results, and fosters a stronger, healthier and more resilient scalp and hair environment, while improving the hair’s smoothness and shine, leaving it silky to the touch.

Indulge in the benefits of Vegan Silk Peptides with the Strengthening Silk Protein Shampoo, Strengthening Essence-Conditioner and Nourish and Stimulate Scalp Mask, all of which are formulated with a high percentage of the groundbreaking ingredient. 

The Strengthening Silk Protein Shampoo works to fortify the structure of fragile hair strands, prevent breakage and rebuild damaged follicles. The Strengthening Essence-Conditioner boosts elasticity, repairs weathered follicles and increases smoothness and shine without weighing down fine hair. 

The Nourish and Stimulate Scalp Mask cultivates healthy hair retention by improving the dermatological condition of the scalp. It feeds fragile hair follicles and skin cells with a potent dose of essential vitamins and nutrients and stimulates new growth while relieving scalp discomfort. 

As MONPURE’s foundations of hair repair, they are a perfect trio of products to cultivate hair repair, safeguard against external aggressors and foster the ideal dermatological condition of the scalp to promote healthy hair growth.



Victoria’s Hair Repair Journey

After bleaching her hair for years, Victoria began experiencing severe hair breakage. Years of colour damage resulted in her hair breaking and snapping off at an unprecedented rate, leading to patches of baldness and thinning. Since using MONPURE, Victoria is finally seeing the density and health of her hair restored, and her hair is growing in thicker than ever.

Hair Damage Before and After: Victoria’s Story

My name is Victoria and I am here to talk about my experience with using MONPURE products on my extremely bleach damaged hair. 

I have been having my hair bleached for years, and have never really thought twice about it. My hair was, on the whole, fairly low maintenance. Then about 8 months ago, I did the unthinkable: I bleached it myself, left the chemicals on for over an hour; and I did this RIGHT after having had it done professionally in a salon.

The colour was exactly what I wanted, but as soon as I started drying it I noticed it was breaking and literally snapping off at an uncontrollable rate. I started to panic. I had heard about this happening before, but no one ever thinks it's going to happen to them. 

I immediately started frantically googling how to fix it. In the space of a few hours I had drenched my hair in coconut oil, olive oil, yoghurt, I tried EVERYTHING that night. But to no avail, as the damage was already done. If you push your hair past its breaking point there is literally no going back. Once the hair is broken, it is broken. 

I started using MONPURE products about 3 months after this had happened. My hair was in a state and I was willing to try anything and everything in the hopes that it would make a difference,  I knew I had to start focusing on the new hair growing in; and while you can’t repair the broken hair, you can to a certain extent, control the breaking. I did this by having it cut every 4-6 weeks. I now have some really funky layers in my hair. I also have fairly severe patches of thin hair on my scalp and patches of baldness. 

MONPURE focuses on scalp health – which I have discovered through their products is key. As soon as I started using the luxurious shampoo and conditioner I noticed how much stronger my roots felt. The strength of my hair at my roots compared to my ends was like night and day. It is also important to note that I have always had thin hair, and after using these products for a few months, my hair started to grow in thicker than it ever had before. I ensure I lather the conditioner all over my scalp as well as my ends; this really helps the product sink in. 

In addition to the shampoo and conditioner, about once a week I use the scalp mask and scalp scrub. The scrub helps to cleanse and exfoliate the scalp, and is especially useful if, like me, you have a build-up of products on the scalp from an array of treatments. The mask leaves your scalp and the roots of your hair feeling hydrated and fresh; the formula is so light it doesn’t feel like a heavy weight on your head like some masks can.  

However, the star of the show really is the Follicle Boost Hair Density Serum. I use it religiously every night before bed. The hair that has since grown back since starting using it is so full, thick and healthy. It feels so luxurious to put on and it sinks into the scalp without leaving it greasy. And as a plus, it smells gorgeous.  

After three months, my hair is in a much better state. It still has miles to go, but I already feel more confident and I am going to continue using MONPURE products for a long time. 

MONPURE’s focus on scalp health and rebuilding hair’s strength from the root has helped many women with similar stories to Victoria. Dealing with excessive breakage, shedding and dull hair as a result of chemical bleaching, Victoria turned to the Clarifying Scalp Scrub, Strengthening Silk Protein Shampoo, Strengthening Essence-Conditioner and Follicle Boost Hair Density Serum to combat her concerns. After three months of consistent use, her hair is feeling fuller, thicker and healthier than ever.
