Is Your Hair Positively or Negatively Charged? 

Here’s a fun fact, your hair naturally has a negative charge. It’s “like static electricity but… insulated by our hair’s protective lipid layer.” [1] 

Your hair strands are made up of layers that protect your hair. Perfectly healthy hair looks shiny and smooth. But, as damage happens over time, your hair cuticle starts to crack. 

What Does Healthy Hair Look Like? 

Imagine looking at your hair under a microscope. 

First, you will see the outer layer called the cuticle. It looks like scales overlapping similar to the shingles on your roof.

The purpose of the cuticle layer is to prevent damage from entering into the inner layers. [2] 

In the center of the hair strand is the cortex layer. Here is where pigment is stored, giving your hair its natural color. [2] 

In healthy hair, the cuticle is covered by lipid layers on the outside that keep your hair smooth and shiny. “Healthy hair has a smooth, flat cuticle that is translucent and reflects light … a result of lipid layers on the outer cuticle that make each hair strand water repellent and feel smooth.” [3] 

Over time, as damage to the hair cuticle increases, the less lipid layers are left to protect the cortex. 

What Causes Hair Damage? 

These are some factors that can cause damage to your hair cuticle: [3]

  • UV rays 
  • Oxidation from air and water 
  • Overuse of heat styling 
  • Over brushing 
  • Chemical treatments such as coloring, permanent straightening or curling 

What Does Hair Damage Look Like? 

Think about those bad frizzy hair days. 

“Damaged hair has higher negative charge, and the hairs literally try to separate from each other, creating frizz.” [1] 

You may be causing damage to your hair unintentionally by excessively blow drying or over brushing your hair. 


These daily actions cause the outside layer of your hair to weaken, leaving the inner layer exposed to damage.

The problem is your body can’t “repair hair after it has grown out of the root.” [1] 

Opposites Attract. 

Think back to your high school science class. Do you remember using magnets to learn about positive and negative electrical charges? Objects with the same charge, like a negative and a negative will repel. But, objects with opposite charges attract, like a positive and a negative together. 

This is the idea behind the new magnetic hair care technology to improve the health of your hair. 

Hair damage like frizz or “static is the result of an imbalance of too many positive or negative charges in or on an object. [4] 

To solve this dilemma, hair industry scientists have developed hair products that are positively charged.

“These can neutralize each other to create harmony for your hair.”[4] 

Scientists infuse positively charged products to create an attraction between the product and your negatively charged hair as a way of “reducing negative charges and helping the hair lay down better.” [1] By using, “positively charged detergents and silicon molecules in shampoos, conditioners and detanglers.” [1] 

As a result, hair products like conditioners can be created to “restore the hair’s normal charge, thus making it less frizzy and easier to manage.” [5] 

Unique Magnetic Hair Care Technology 

Monat’s Damage Repair products have a unique technology called Monasomes. According to Monat’s chief scientific officer, Alan J. Meyers, “Monasomes are carriers that penetrate the hair and release active material over time.In the Monasones there are 10 different amino acids that focus on bond repair and bond building.” [6]

Meyers explains how Monasomes work. Monat’s Damage Repair products also have magnetic conditioners that have a partial positive charge. Like a magnet, the positive charge in the conditioners are attracted to the negative charge in your hair and continuously condition the outside of your hair. Monasomes have two naturally-based moisturizers: 

  • Sodium PCA -part of the natural moisturizer factor of your skin. 
  • Desert Date Oil- an oil that delivers moisture, increases shine, and manageability to your hair.
