Most of you who have followed me for awhile know I try to use natural products as much as humanly possible. I’m also having a problem with my hair being unruly, frizzy and down right dry. It never looks healthy as I age. Over the last few years I have tried many shampoo/conditioner combos, coconut oil, argan oil, hair masks, washing every other day, etc. Nothing worked. Looking at your nutrition is important to heal from the inside out, so always investigate that as well. We have recently gone Paleo as a way to do an elimination diet and figure out what my body reacts to. Hopefully with that I find what my body needs so I can heal my hair from the inside out.
I asked them to send me full size shampoo and conditioner so I could do a longer term review. Honestly, I am amazed. Virtue Labs are free of Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Colors & Dye. My hair lays smooth with no flyaways, its soft and not brittle, and honestly I am actually loving my hair! I always struggle with chopping it off because it drives me insane with how its been looking. After I use this for a few more weeks and research the ingredients more, I will post an update at the bottom of the article. I am still on the search for a natural product, but thought I would try Virtue Labs for my readers.
From reading on their site the shampoo refines and de-frizzes strand by strand, sealing in moisture and shine. It is Color-safe and ideal for medium-to-thick, harder to manage hair.
Alpha Keratin 60ku™ is the key to Virtue Labs products. It is a is a pure, whole, human protein. Alpha Keratin is identical to the keratin in your hair, skin, and nails so it heals and repairs. The ingredients contain a blend of flower, fruit, herbs, soothing lavender, sweet pear, and fresh mint essential oils. According to Virtue Labs, Six years ago, a group of bio-scientists had found a new way to collect Keratin in its pure form. It is the protein that makes up 90% of our hair, skin and nails. They had discovered Alpha Keratin 60ku™. The creator met Lt. Col. Dr. Luke Burnett. At his lab, his team works to advance regenerative medicine and help those who have sustained traumatic injuries on the battlefield. (AMAZING for our soldiers). Six years ago, they developed a way of harvesting keratin in its purest, most powerful form – directly from human hair. For the first time, they were able to keep the protein whole, and test results showed profound healing effects. The creator of Virtue labs was inspired by the findings, so she created Virtue.
What I love about this shampoo is you only need a quarter-sized amount of shampoo! Rub it into a lather between palms and apply to wet hair and massage into scalp. In researching Alpha Keratin 60ku, I ran across an article on follicle thought.com that talks about the Winston/Salem clinic by Col. Dr. Luke Brunett.
