Scattered across my bathroom are likely hundreds of haircare products with the hope of making my manes longer, stronger, and smoother, all claiming that they are the *secret* to taming my tresses. Enter the last 18 months where I’ve lost nearly a third of my hair, likely in part due to stress, life, and a general aging as I eclipse into my 30s—there is no shortage of items you’ve been told to test on your hair. If you’re looking for a one-stop-solution for skincare for your scalp, enter Monpure.
Delivered to my door in beautifully-packaged box, Monpure is a British brand built in an effort to erase the shame and silence surrounding female hair loss; I was desperate to start regrowing my hair, and started Googling options after understanding that the condition of my scalp is inherent in impacting the natural growth and retention of my hair. Within 30 days of using Monpure, my scalp was finally free of flakes, reported no bumps or rashes, and I noticeably had 50% less hair ‘shedding’ in the shower.

I Lost A Third Of My Hair At Age 30: Here’s How Monpure Made It Grow Back
- It’s A Common Problem: Fewer than 45% of women go through life with a full head of hair, with more than half (57%) of women feeling less attractive as a result of this; Monpure’s site shared resources and stories of how female hair loss is common and made me feel a little less alone!
- Starting At The Scalp: On the back of a sweaty summer with oil and debris naturally built on my scalp, Monpure reported that this unwanted oiliness and build-up can clog the hair follicles, leading to irritation or the inhibition of hair growth entirely—and so I started using the Clarifying Scalp Scrub once per week to lift off of debris, dry skin and oil, while giving proper nourishment throughout root to tip.
- Wash—But Not Too Much: I was surprised to hear that I may be washing my hair too often, as washing too frequently can strip your scalp of oils, could cause drying, and could even lead to infection—I have curlier, coarser hair, and I found that with a clean scalp, washing with Monpure’s Strengthening Silk Protein Shampoo twice a week left my hair feeling cleaner followed by their Strengthening Essence-Conditioner
- It’s Time For Rehydration: I swear by this weekly Nourish and Stimulate Scalp Mask as the ultimate SOS treatment—a cloud-like formula smells light, fresh, and felt like a light tingle throughout my scalp—the aloe vera and vitamin-rich camellia tea oil left my tresses feeling silky soft and left my scalp feeling again—clean, but not too clean.
