The summer season is here, and that means our strands are exposed to more elements than normal. From the sun to maybe the chlorine and salt water, chances are you are spending a whole lot more time outside, and if you’re anything like me, your hair may show the (unfortunate) side effects–damage.
One ingredient that could help your hair regain some of its health and vitality is keratin. Keratin naturally occurs in the hair, but with repeated heat styling and exposure to other environmental aggressors, your hair’s natural stores of keratin can be broken down over time.
Treating your hair with keratin from procedures or products has been one solution to this. And although some hair experts have argued that too much keratin can eventually damage the hair, there is a sweet spot.
You’ve got to get just enough keratin in your hair to repair it–not too much, and not too little–and Virtue Labs appears to have hit that mark.
All of Virtue Labs’ products are formulated with their signature Alpha Keratin 60ku, which is a human hair-derived keratin. And also what makes it different from other lines out there.
The Recovery line in particular is great for people like me whose hair is dry and/or damaged from regular exposure to heat styling, pool or ocean water, or any other element that can degrade the health of the hair.
I don’t personally have fine or thin hair, so I can’t say how it would perform on someone with that hair type. But I can say that, no matter your hair type, if you’re looking for something to add into your routine even once weekly that can help to repair the damage, this would be it.
Unlike other lines whose benefits have taken a week or more to see, I have to say that with Virtue Labs’ Recovery line, I saw immediate results.
Do you typically switch out your hair care products for the summer months? If so, would you try Virtue Labs Recovery line? Let me know in Comments below!
