#CocoBeauty: Do things differently this Veganuary

So, you’ve decided that Veganuary is where you are going to change things in your life, and you are trying really hard to give up meat, yet can’t seem to do it 100%, so what should you do?

Why not make some small changes to get you ready for the leap into becoming a vegan, especially if you’re not quite a vegetarian yet? It’s the small steps that lead into the great achievements. Start with Meat Free Monday and then you’re heading in the right direction.

How about starting with changing the outside of your body before working on the inside? I know, we are always saying that it’s what’s inside that matters most, but on this occasion why don’t you start with the outside and work your way in? In fact, start from the top and work your way to the bottom!

Let’s talk haircare……..


Look at your haircare products and make a few initial changes with these products. From your shampoo and conditioner to styling and finishing there’s loads of vegan products on the market to try, and #TeamCoco are loving the full collection by luxury vegan haircare company Monat – every product is suitable for all hair types.

Our faves include:

Monat Rejuveniqe® Oil Intensive
This is the crown jewel of true opulence within Monat’s luxury vegan haircare collection. Bringing a plethora of beautifying benefits to hair and complexion, this indulgent formula comprises a potent combination of 14 highly prized natural oils, rich in omega-3 fatty acids and with biomimetic properties for high compatibility with hair and skin. This highly charged modern multitasker prevents oxidative stress and imparts lustre and glow to hair and skin with powerful natural ingredients.

As a multi-use hero, Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive provides numerous benefits without the build-up of silicone. Suitable for all hair types, including colour and chemically treated locks.

Can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment, intensive hydrating treatment, leave-in finishing treatment, anti-frizz treatment, or even as a facial serum.

Monat Rejuvabeads®
Keep unkempt ends from spoiling your hairstyle by using Monat Rejuvabeads®. This new turbo-charged temporary fix with staying power will let you temporarily split up with split ends, even if you’ve left it too long between trims. The game-changing formulation fabulises frayed strands and fortifies stressed and damaged sections of hair. Frizziness is subdued, friction decreased, and breakage banished.

An exclusive and proprietary micro-encapsulation of Rejuveniqe® Oil Intensive gives this styling staple serious science kapow. This unique blend of 13 natural plant and essential oils, highly compatible with hair and skin and rich in omega fatty acids, antioxidants and nutrients, is encased in billions of micro-encapsulated beads, each possessing a natural charge. When applied to negatively charged, damaged hair, these beads search out split ends and areas in need of repair, where they click into place and create a 3D mending matrix.

Priced at £45 for 70ml, from MonatGlobal online

Monat Reshape Root Lifter
An alcohol-free, root amplifying spray, which creates long-lasting, high-impact volume. Provides protection against heat styling induced damage, and a mirror shine finish. Nourishes and fortifies the follicle to help boost future growth and reduce thinning. Non-sticky formula delivers touchably soft and visibly fuller hair whilst extending the life of colour.

Priced at £30 for 134ml, from MonatGlobal online.
