Thanks so much to our sponsor for this episode: 

Virtue Labs is a new haircare brand with a vision to give everyone the best hair scientifically possible. Six years ago, a group of bio scientists working in restorative medicine discovered an incredible new protein called Alpha Keratin 60ku, which has the power to completely transform your hair. Alpha Keratin 60ku is a whole, human protein that’s identical to the Keratin in your own hair, so it can resurface and fill in cracks from damage to change your hair’s quality and appearance forever. And, right now, you can only find it in Virtue Labs’s line of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products.  Not to mention, each formula was created to address specific issues like heat damage, frizz, or thinning hair. That means more bounce, more shine, more strength, and more life for your hair. Visit Virtue Labs and use the code PANTSUIT for 10% off and free shipping.
