"As a girl, growing up in this world of expected perfection, I always had areas of my physical appearance that I wanted to change. I think we all have in some way. One aspect of my appearance that I liked and kept healthy was my hair. It was, for most of my life, long and healthy. It had a natural shine and was very thick and straight. Because of the texture and style that I kept, it was very low maintenance and for the most part, had not gone through much stress from styling other than the occasional 80’s moments of hair torture.
When I reached the point in my life when I got married and was trying to conceive, I became pregnant many times only to have delivered one living baby. I was determined to be a mother and was blessed with a beautiful gift. I am the mother of the most beautiful perfect little girl. After having her, I became pregnant again only to loose several more pregnancies. Being pregnant so much over the span of five years stripped my body of nutrients causing many issues with my health and physical appearance. One of those issues was the condition and texture of my hair. I tried vitamins and various treatments for the recovery of the health of my hair. Nothing seemed to return the shine, thickness and texture of my hair.
I will never forget the moment that I saw my reflection when drying my hair after just the second time I used Virtue Recovery Shampoo and Recovery Conditioner. I was so happy that I could see a resemblance of my former self. It’s amazing what a little self confidence can do for someone who has suffered so much loss, and I’m referring to more than just the loss of physical identity, but a much deeper loss or the loss of multiple pieces of yourself.
After seeing the change in my hair from Recovery, I tried the Full Shampoo, Split End Serum and the Polish Un-frizz Cream. It’s my new hair care routine, rotating between Recovery and Full! When we travel, we take the travel sizes of every product with us. I say us, because my husband and daughter use Virtue products as well!
I love using the one for all 6-in-One Styler also! My 3 year old blessing keeps me very busy and it gives me such versatility with style when I’m on the go!
If your hair is dry, limp, broken and dull, Virtue hair care products can bring your hair back to life. I’m the perfect example of that!"
