Q&A with Virtue: Hair Loss and Thinning with Virtue® Pro Danielle Freund
Women, in particular, experience hair thinning and loss for a number of reasons—stress, hormones, metabolism, and the environment are just a few culprits. Here stylist, hair growth expert, and salon owner of Full Bloom Studio in Baltimore, Maryland, Danielle Freund, answers your questions about hair loss in women and what can be done about it.
Yes, men can use Flourish. If using the Minoxidil 5%, however, men should apply it twice a day (vs. the once daily application for women). The Density Booster should be used once per day for both men and women.
Shedding is a normal part of the hair loss cycle and we lose on average 100 hairs per day. If you're losing more than 100 hairs per day or seeing anything out of the norm for you including bald spots, patchiness, and clumps falling out, scheduling an appointment with your doctor or dermatologist to try to figure out the source or type of loss is recommended.
Yes! The Density Booster is a potent, drug-free nutrient infusion for the scalp. It fuels fatigued hair follicles and nurtures the hairs so they thicken and thrive

Flourish Shampoo, Conditioner, and Density Booster, and Volumizing Styler should be safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding, but we always suggest reviewing the ingredient lists with your doctor. It's not recommend to use Minoxidil 5% while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Yes. The Shampoo, Conditioner, and Density Booster regimen is best here. You should wait until your treatments have ended before starting use. And as always consult with your doctor before adding any new products to your routine.
