Hi! I’m Babie!
Whether you’re here for a deeper insight as to what it is I do, or you want to know a little bit more about me, or you just need product recommendations, I’ve got you covered!
My story. .
“Every phase of your life will require a different you”
If you’ve browsed my page at all you may have picked up on a few things about me, but for those of you that are new here, welcome! My name is Babie, I am 26 years old, I live in Fresno, CA, I am a mama of 2 minions, and I work from home! Athena is 7, Idris is 1, and my partner through all of this is Mykal! Mykal and I have been together since high school, and we graduated together in 2011. After graduation we moved out of our hometown and a year later we got pregnant. Surprise!
Now, I consider that the short version of how our story began, but really our life didn’t BEGINBEGIN until we had Athena at the end of 2012. I had just turned 19 and life was tough. I had to figure out how to grow up, be a parent, continue my education, fight for my relationship, ANDDD work to support my family all at the same time. In the midst of it all, I struggled with anxiety and postpartum depression. One of the most difficult things about that time in my life was that I didn’t know that was actually happening to me. There were a lot of days I thought I wouldn’t make it, some days were good and some days were just bad. It took me a while, but those bad days helped me realize that change doesn’t just happen because we want it to, we have to do the changing and the rest will follow. So, I kept my head down, I worked hard, and I tried to have more good days than bad. See, hard work is always easier said than done, but after years of doing the necessary work on myself, I finally feel like I did it! I shifted my perspective. I focused on the things that were in MY control. I started living more for myself. I stayed open-minded and positive. I just CHANGED.
My hardships in life have helped guide me to transform into this woman I am today, and for that I’ll always be grateful. Today, I am a stay-home mama, I have 2 beautiful children, and an amazing life-partner, and together we have worked to become independent. Nothing brings us more joy than knowing that everything we do has a higher purpose. As much as I love being home though, supporting my family financially has always been something that I‘ll always feel responsible for. But, mom life + a 9 to 5 is a tough game to play. As much as I’d love to have a job with a payroll AND be at home, I just don’t have the luxury to even have a second option. I felt stuck and the thought of knowing that this would be my life for years until the kids got older didn’t help. But, one day my friend shared an opportunity that she took on called Monat. Now, there are very few people I trust with my life, but she gets the pass to everything, so I knew if she was sharing this opportunity that allowed her to work from wherever, whenever, it was legit. Weeks passed and I continued to watch her sell these hair care products from Monat, and not only did I watch her business grow but I watched her hair grow too. A year later I finally decided to give it a try and I became one of her customers! She talked me through enrolling, I told her my hair was thinning, dry, and needed a lot of help, so she recommended which products to buy and I went for it! My first bottle of shampoo and conditioner lasted me 6 months! The proof is really in the pudding and if you haven’t seen my transformations, don’t worry because they’ll be on the next page! 3 months had passed, I fell in love with the products, and Monat was having a huge deal for people looking to join the business. Now, in no way have I ever been interested in business nor did I know anything about running a business, I still decided to join.
Now, one of the first things I’ve learned about running your own business is focusing on connecting to others by speaking of your “Why”, your reason behind doing what you do. December of 2018, I joined Monat solely for the discount, but having that opportunity to sell and make an income from home whenever I wanted to was something I kept in the back of my mind. Back then, I wasn’t ready to make any commitment to selling and becoming a team member. However, in the last year, I’ve learned that Monat is so much more than shampoo.
For those of you that are new here, you’re probably wondering what is Monat. Monat is a direct sales company that makes a naturally based anti-aging skin and hair care line, safe for women, men and children. The products speak for themselves and the hundreds of thousands of transformations never get old, but the foundation of the company itself is truly built on gratitude, making Monat a one of a kind, well-rounded company. I’ve gotten to connect with some of the most incredible and inspiring women, and joining the business side of Monat has shown me that the best things happen outside of your comfort zone. Monat is filled with opportunity and gives back in so many ways, and it’s something that I’ve found myself more drawn as my first year came to an end. If you were to ask me what my “Why” is now the answer would be completely different. I choose to stay with Monat because I want to help others get that confidence within themselves to thrive, just like I did. I want to show others that opportunities are there, we just have to take it, and if you’re a SAHM like I am looking for another source of income or just a team filled with inspiring women to help motivate you to become the best version of yourself, I’m here for it, and we are all here for you! The unknown is scary, but when you join Monat, you’re not alone! So, if you’ve been looking for a sign in your life, stop looking and just go for it! Go for the thing that’s been on your mind, go for the job that you feel unqualified for, just go for it all because the best things come from trying! 🤍
Before & Afters just like I promised —
Monat is for everyone —
Whether you have short, long, or chemically treated hair, Monat is safe and clinically proven to help strengthen, heal, and improve your overall hair density. Before I started using Monat I had a long list of hair problems, but after I gave birth in 2018, I got to add post-partum hair loss and recovering trichotillomania onto that list. I thought my hair was done for, so for me there really was no ‘worse case scenario’ in trying Monat. But, in just a few months I noticed my hair growing back faster and even better than before! If I could change go back and change one thing, I would’ve became a customer a lot sooner.
My Top Picks
My fav products and recommendations for you!
#1. Rejuveniqe Oil
This is the holy grail of Monat! Rejuveniqe Oil is made up of a blend of 13+ Natural Plant and Essential Oils rich in omega fatty acids, antioxidants and nutrients highly compatible with your skin and hair. Whether you have oily or dry hair, Rejuveniqe Oil helps to balance the pH of your scalp, strengthen the follicles further reducing hair thinning, and it’s the only oil that can penetrate all 3 layers of the hair down to the cortex! In sum, it’s able to heal your hair from the inside out RATHER than coat and suffocate your hair like other oils do. This oil has 101+ uses and I could go on forever talking about it, but basically you want this in your hair care line up!
AKA THE SPLIT END MENDER!
Rejuvabeads is a must for repairing your hair!
Use 2-3 pumps on the lower half of your hair after you shower! The beads will automatically migrate to the damaged areas and mend it back to its original place, pulling the legs of the split together or filling in the open damage on the strand! Damaged hair also loses moisture quickly and disintegrates as it dehydrates! When that happens, the beads break down, releasing the rejuveniqe oil into the damage and hydrates it throughout the day!
But H O W ? !
Healthy hair has a neutral charge, but once it is damaged, the charge is negative. The Rejuvabeads has encapsulation technology that is positive in charge. So like any magnet, the + charge of the beads is attracted to the - charge of split ends and micro damage!
#3. THE CHAMP: Dry Shampoo
Never have I ever thought that I would use or need a product like this! Growing up I had the most basic routine, shampoo + conditioner + hair straightener. So, if you’re like me and don’t know what dry shampoo is or does, let’s talk about it!
I went from washing my hair every single day to every 3rd day. It was a hard habit to break, but over washing can strip our natural oils and cause even more problems than we think! So, in order to help my hair transform into a healthier state than ever, it was a necessary that I broke that habit! Dry shampoo comes in by conditioning our hair without actually washing it! So, you can go even longer without washing your hair, and I don’t advocate for it, but sometimes it just happens, and dry shampoo will become your best friend in those moments! If you typically have an abundance of oil that causes your hair to feel greasy, or you workout a lot and that sweat can build up, the CHAMP works by absorbing those oils, freshening your hair, and locking in shine with just a few sprays!
It’s as simple as shake, apply to roots, and let it soak in. You will feel and see the difference in your hair in just a few minutes! The champ has no butane, so it’s safe for the environment and safe for your hair! Even if your not ready to switch your shampoo and conditioner, please switch out your spray products, especially the ones that contain butane and talc! It’s 2020, and we shouldn’t keep putting flammable ingredients in our hair!￼
