Key Ingredients

Vegan Silk Peptides

Delivers a breathable barrier against external aggressors. It removes carbon particles by 83% removal, improves hair colour protection by 35%, and repairs thermal damage by 72% with each wash. Vegan silk peptides foster a stronger, healthier scalp and hair environment, enhancing smoothness and shine.

Vegan Keratin

Vegan keratin is a resilient protein that works to strengthen the bonds between follicles, allowing roots to grow stronger and reinforcing their structural integrity. By filling the porous gaps of the outermost cuticle composed of overlapping cells, vegan keratin protects, strengthens and repairs fragile and fine strands.

Pro Vitamin B5

This deeply penetrating moisturising agent promotes regeneration of skin cells and works as a hydrating anti-inflammatory for irritated scalps. It also prevents hair damage, improves sheen and strengthens hair from the root.

My scalp feels clear and my hair no longer breaks. Not only has it gained more shine and life, but my hair has a noticeable bounce and health that it did not have before.


As a vegan alternative to silk peptides, this pioneering ingredient fortifies hair from the root. It delivers a 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 83% in one use, improve hair colour protection by 35%, and repair heat 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.

Keratin is the protein naturally found in the 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 boosts shine, smoothness and elasticity.

This deeply penetrating moisturising agent is perfect for dry and flaky scalps. It promotes skin cell regeneration, wound healing and works as a hydrating anti-inflammatory for irritated scalps. Its moisturising properties prevent hair damage and split ends, improve sheen and strengthen hair from the root.

addressing hair & scalp health at the root


The relationship between hair and hormones starts as we are born and continues through every stage of life. From hair-loss-causing DHT to hair-boosting oestrogen, hormones play one of the most vital roles in our hair and scalp health. The hair growth cycle and the hair follicle structure are directly affected by the hormones in our bloodstream. Fluctuations in sex hormones, stress hormones and thyroid hormones all have various effects on the hair and scalp, and are often the culprits of sudden disruptions in the health of this delicate microbiome. 


Stress compromises the health of your body in a variety of ways, the retention of your hair being one of them. Exposure to stress hormones over many weeks reduces hair growth as hair follicles remain in an extended telogen (resting) phase, a condition known as Telogen Effluvium, whereby up to 70% of growing hairs can abruptly shift into the resting phase (versus the normal 15% that elicits shedding before a new anagen phase).


Through a process called oxidative stress, environmental aggressors (such as cigarette smoke, pollutants, UV radiation or even certain products or foods) can damage various cellular structures in the hair follicle. Oxidative stress breaks down cell tissue and causes DNA damage, which can result in inflammation. Research has shown that oxidative stress also contributes to hair loss by impairing the scalp’s ability to support healthy cell renewal, and in turn, healthy hair growth.


Hair cells are the second fastest-dividing cells in the human body. Each individual has roughly 120,000 hairs on their scalp, all of which require nourishment and fuel to grow and proliferate. Nutritional deficiencies, particularly in iron, zinc, Vitamin D, biotin and Vitamin B12, can impact the hair’s structure, follicle development, immune cell functioning, and ultimately, hair growth. By supporting healthy nutrition, you can support a healthy hair growth cycle.


As we age, the body undergoes many changes and fluctuations, with our hair being no exception. Turning grey is just one of the many changes that confront our hair as we age. In fact, hair ageing affects hair colour, hair curvature, hair diameter and the structural properties of the hair fibre. Research suggests that over 52% of women will experience some form of hair loss by the age of 50, and by the age of 60, approximately 80% will undergo changes in their hair density.


Fine hair is lighter and smaller in diameter than average hair, it is easily weighed down by gravity and heavy product residue. Fine hair requires lightweight and fortifying solutions that deliver bounce and body without weighing it down. The Strengthening Essence-Conditioner supremely moisturises and fortifies fine strands without any worry of flat or heavy hair.

“It’s extremely lightweight (hence, the essence component), but it doesn’t compromise on efficacy.”

When can I expect to see results?

Giving your scalp and hair the opportunity to recuperate and deliver strength from within requires well-managed expectations, patience and consistency. The Strengthening Essence-Conditioner restores moisture back into the scalp without weighing hair down - breaking the cycle of starving the scalps and dehydrating the hair. This process can take up to 4 to 6 weeks, in which the scalp and hair are freed from the build-up of synthetic cleansing and conditioning agents, as well as being repaired, strengthened and nourished to foster healthier, stronger hair going forward.

Can I apply this product to my scalp?

Inspired by K-beauty skincare formulations, the Strengthening Essence-Conditioner has a lightweight consistency and is designed to be applied to both the scalp and lengths, unlike traditional conditioners that can leave a waxy residue. You can confidently replenish moisture and nourishment to your scalp without fear of a weighed-down or greasy aftermath.

Is this product safe for colour treated hair?

All MONPURE products are safe for colour-treated hair. In fact, the Strengthening Essence-Conditioner contains vegan silk peptides that improve colour protection by 35%.

Is this product suitable for keratin-treated hair?

All MONPURE products are effective to use after any chemical treatments, such as keratin treatments, and do not contain abrasive ingredients such as sulphates, parabens or silicones.

Can I use the conditioner while pregnant or breastfeeding?

All products are dermatologically tested, suitable to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding and cruelty free.
