Q&A with VirtueQ&A with Virtue
How do I get salon-quality blowout at home?

To get a good salon-quality blowout at home start by applying Volumizing Primer to your roots, then apply 6-in-1 Styler from mid-lengths to ends. After that, you can essentially “wake up your roots” by rough drying your hair to about 85%. Finish by smoothing ends with a medium-large size round brush.

What’s the best product for my crazy quarantine split ends?

Without a doubt, the Split End Serum is the best product for quarantine split ends. It’s like instant gratification - it has the heavy-hitting amount of our Alpha Keratin 60ku®.

What is Alpha Keratin 60ku®, for real?

It’s keratin derived/extracted from human hair. The fancy name is the molecular strand “alpha” and its weight “60ku.”

What’s the deal on how often we should wash our hair? Is it good or bad to go for days without washing?

Washing your hair is subjective to your own scalp health and hair type and texture. Someone with oily/fine hair may have to wash more frequently than someone with dry/thick hair. If you tend to go awhile, keep our Purifying Shampoo on hand to remove excess oil and debris.

I have thin, frizzy coil curly hair. How do I style for air dry but without becoming frizzy?

Make sure your hair and hands have enough product to retain moisture while you manipulate the curl pattern, then avoid touching it until completely dry.

I’m looking for volume...What products do I need?

The Volumizing Primer and Texturizing Spray are the most universal volumizing products in the line. Volumizing Primer is used to create volume and Texturizing Spray gives the effortless tousled look that is still very touchable.

If I’m only buying 1 product to see what Virtue is all about, what do I get?

The Restorative Treatment Mask. The smell, the feel, the benefits! It’s a treatment - it works quickly… what’s not to love?!

What are the best products for flaky scalp?

I would start would products in our Refresh line, whether the Exfoliating Scalp Treatment, which gently sloughs off any dead skin patches, or the Topical Scalp Supplement, which is meant to be used as part of a nightly regimen. Both promote healthy scalp cell turnover which will indirectly help a flaky scalp.

When using the Restorative Treatment Mask, should we skip the conditioner that day? Use before or after Mask?

The mask is meant to be used in lieu of a conditioner. So go ahead skip the conditioner and take that 3 minutes that mask sits on to sing, shave, or daydream...
