“Exclusivity” used to be a big buzz word in beauty. But we didn’t want that. MONDAY is all about making luxury more inclusive, which is why we make our products widely available at an affordable price point. We’re also vegan, cruelty-free, and don’t use SLS or parabens – and don’t believe you should have to pay more for this!
Yes, she is! Georgia is so much more than the face (and hair muse) of MONDAY; she’s also involved in the product development and creative direction of MONDAY.
Our MONDAY Muses are our brand ambassadors, and are women you’d want to be friends with. They’re entrepreneurs, experts, artists and creatives who are far more than their Instagram followings. So far our Muses include Meena Harris, Jenna Perry, Betina Goldstein, Mandy Madden Kelley, Alana Jones-Mann, Dani Roche, Kristin Fisher, Rukaiya Daud, Samantha Harris and Beck Wadworth.
We currently offer Shampoo and Conditioner in four distinct lines – VOLUME (to invigorate thin or fine hair), SMOOTH (ideal for curly, coily or frizzy hair), MOISTURE (for dry and coarse hair) and GENTLE (for hair and scalps that need extra TLC).
In Australia, MONDAY Haircare is stocked via Coles and Kristin Fisher Eyebrows. To help you find MONDAY near you, click HERE.
We’re committed to working in ways which help reduce costs, so we can pass these savings on to customers. We use an industry-leading manufacturing facility and produce at scale, which means we can still use premium quality ingredients and ensure we’re completely free from SLS, parabens and animal testing.
SLS in your products is one of the main things to avoid when you have a keratin treatment done, and luckily MONDAY doesn’t contain SLS. We have tested MONDAY with some keratin treatments, and found them to be safe, however we do recommend consulting your haircare professional to ensure that the haircare products you’re using are suitable for the particular keratin treatment you’re receiving.
We’ve worked hard to ensure our formulas cater to all hair needs and types. For those with hair extensions, our recommendation would be to use either our SMOOTH or GENTLE ranges and keep the conditioner away from bonds, wefts and tapes. We always recommend checking with your stylist first, but both your natural and ‘extra’ hair should love MONDAY.
Unfortunately MONDAY isn’t formulated especially for sensitive skin or scalp, so we’re not able to recommend any of our lines to you. We’d recommend using products that are specially formulated for sensitive skin, if you’re not already!
While our products have been dermatologically tested and proven to be safe for adults, we haven’t tested them for children and babies, which technically means we can’t recommend it. As with anything, their skin and hair can respond differently, and their tolerance to certain ingredients is lower – so it’s always best to err on the side of caution.
Everyone’s needs during pregnancy are different, which is why we recommend checking with your healthcare professional about the cosmetic and haircare products you should be using during this (exciting) time of your life.
SLS stands for sodium lauryl sulfate, and is a surfactant (meaning it attaches to and removes oil-based dirt) that’s commonly used in shampoos, cleansers and toothpaste. It gives your product that foamy, lathery feel and gives you a super-clean feeling. However it can be quite drying, and many people find it harsh on their hair and skin. As such, we use more gentle surfactants such as the coconut-derived sodium olefin sulfonate and sodium cocoyl isethionate, which still give a lather without that same harshness.
Parabens are a type of preservative commonly used in cosmetics to help stabilise a formula and prevent things like mould and bacteria developing in the bottle – however, some people can find them to be harsh. They do have a necessary effect, so we look to alternatives such as phenoxyethanol, which is an effective and very stable antimicrobial.
Our formulas contain a fragrance based on gardenia! We’ve also snuck in an array of ingredients (including ginger root extract) which, along with having other benefits, subtly add to the smell.
If you have a known allergy to any of the ingredients listed in our products, we’d ask that you refrain from using them. If you’re unsure, contact your usual physician or health care professional for clarification. If you need a hand deciphering our ingredient list or want to double-check if our formulations include a specific ingredient, feel free to reach out to us via the Contact section of our website. The back of our bottles will always have the most accurate information printed, but you can also use the ingredients listed under each product in Our Range as a guide.
Yes, MONDAY bottles are recyclable! All our bottles are made from 100% recyclable HDPE plastic and our pumps are made from 100% recyclable plastic, which means you can add them to your regular plastic recycling bins and they shouldn’t end up in landfill. (Be sure to wash them out with you in the shower first!) Our bottles are proudly made using 20% recycled plastic, and we’re constantly working on ways to increase this percentage.
Yes, MONDAY Haircare is cruelty-free. (We love animals as much as you do, which is why we don’t test on them!) We are PETA-certified for this, and our products are also vegan.
Our products are made with best-in-class ingredients and manufacturing facilities in China, in compliance with all regulations in the countries they’re sold in (currently Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada and the UAE). Our manufacturing partner holds BRC, SEDEX and ISO4001 certifications, which are global frameworks ensuring ethical standards and integrity across product safety, quality and worker conditions, among other things.
We’ve received many requests for refill bags in order to tread more lightly on the earth and so these are now in the works – watch this space!
