Hi Skin Sister readers! Brooke here, and I would like to shout from the rooftops my absolutely favorite new Shampoo & Conditioner duo from 2017! Between the two of us we have tried all sorts of hair products that could stretch from here to…somewhere really far away! We were so thrilled when we received some promo products from Virtue to review for you. From the first shampoo, I knew these products were special. I had the opportunity to try the Recovery line of Shampoo and Conditioner, as well as the 6-in-1 styling gel and hairspray. It’s all amazing.
All Virtue products contain Keratin 60ku, which is a pure form a keratin that your body is able to recognize as its own. What does this actually mean? Well, Keratin is a protein that is responsible for making up the bulk of your skin, nails and hair. There are many different keratin products and types available; however, Virtue has managed to create a keratin product (the Keratin 60ku) which is extracted from real human hair so that when used on real human hair, it is registered by your body as “its own”. This allows the products to work more efficiently and effectively.
The Recovery shampoo is a thick, golden delight. Its more of a creamy shampoo versus a gel and it smells amazing. You need so little of this product to make an insanely rich lather that, when rinsed, leaves your hair absolutely clean and lush feeling without any hint of dryness. Bonus points for this slight sparkle in the product, which in no way results in any type of shimmer or glitter on your strands. The conditioner is equally as soothing.
The Recovery line is meant to be used by any hair that is treated, dry or just in need of a little extra love. Other ingredients in Recovery products including Hydrolyzed Quinoa (right?!) which helps retain moisture in the hair, Baobab Oil which is a storied ingredient from the African Tree of Life which has been used as an emollient for hair and skin, and Grapefruit Extract to enhance shine and vibrance to the hair. Virtue products never contain Parabens, Phthalates, Dyes or added Colors or Sulfates, so their products are also appropriate for sensitive individuals or those with allergy.
I can’t say enough good things about these hair products – I even purchased more to try during their amazing Black Friday sale!
My turn! It’s Lauren now… I was lucky enough to try the Full Shampoo and Conditioner and The Perfect Ending Split End Serum. Since having my second child nearly 3 years ago, my hair just hasn’t been as thick as I’m used to. There are legit medical options to consider when you notice your hair is thinning, but I’ve been looking for that quick fix “make my hair look thick today” option. I opened the products thinking, might as well try – but not even considering that I’d like them enough to change my routine.
Spoiler alert – I loved them! The Full Shampoo and Conditioner smell awesome and do a great job cleaning and moisturizing my hair, without stripping away any color. Stay tuned for styling product review later this winter!
The mission of the company is inspiring – marrying health and chemical-conscious haircare with actual real results. I’d say that with the products Brooke and I tried, they are managing to do just that.
