A little while ago, I wrote about my visit to Pure Salon. The awesome stylist wanted me to try out some of their gluten-free products, so sent me a bottle of the shampoo she used to wash my hair with, and a matching conditioner I didn’t get to try. Since they specialize in gluten-free service, there’s no surprised that Pure Salon would have great products too. I couldn’t be happier with my Neuma Renew shampoo and conditioner.
I don’t know what I love more about the products – the smell, the feeling in my hair, or the way it leaves my hair afterwards, but it’s all great. It smells like peppermint mocha – a ton of mint with a touch of chocolate. It tingles just a little – and the peppermint leaves your scalp feeling so fresh and so clean (did you just sing the line from Outkast? I did.). It is honestly an experience not to be missed.
Ever since I tried the products, I fell in love with them. But you know me, always a skeptic. So I emailed the company. I received an awesome reply -
Thanks for contacting us and for your interest in our products, it is great to hear from you. NEUMA believes beautiful hair is found in harmony with good health & well-being and created a natural, healthy, sustainable hair care collection that truly delivers exceptional professional performance.
All NEUMA products are celiac safe and completely gluten free. Even the malto in our Volume shampoo comes from Sorghum (gluten free).
Here are some details from their website that talk about why Neuma is supposed to be so awesome. I would tend to agree!

environmental pollutants, not colour, from hair. Plant extracts restore
natural health and shine while maximizing colour retention and

Like most hair care products that are sold in a salon, you can’t find them in the store. However, I have seen them on Amazon and eBay. However, you should encourage your salon to carry Neuma – and if you can, purchase it from them! It’s easy to find on the Neuma website via salon locator.
I’ve got a new favorite – so I’m rating it a 5 out of 5. I can’t wait to try the other lines within Neuma!
