Unless you have been living under a literal boulder in Boulder, Co you know all about the gluten-free “movement” by now. It seems to have become a joke outside of the “Boulder bubble” coupled with comments about our hippie population and yuppy mentality, but in reality celiac disease is a serious issue that 1 in 100 people suffer with today. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that can cause significant damage to the lower intestine if gluten (a combination of proteins often found in wheat, rye, barley, and triticale) is ingested. In addition to this thousands of others suffer with some type of gluten intolerance.
When it comes to the beauty industry gluten is known for its ability to hold and maintain elasticity, so it has long been used in hair products to capitalize on those exact qualities.
Although it is most important to celiac sufferers to avoid gluten in foods, gluten free hair products can at least offer some peace of mind, and have been proven to alleviate other symptoms such as dry scalp or even eczema!
Being the number one hair salon in Boulder, Voodoo is always at the forefront of trends and issues that are faced in the hair industry! That is why we carry salon products that align with everything we believe in, and providing that peace of mind for our clientele is one of those beliefs. Our Unite hair care products are mostly gluten free with only a couple of products excepted, and we do have a comprehensive list of our Kevin Murphy products that also boast a gluten free formula. Outside of that our staff is always interested in providing the perfect services (including products), so our gluten sensitive clients can always feel comfortable calling in with questions or chatting with a stylist about concerns.
If you feel that you might be facing some type of gluten intolerance it is always best to be properly diagnosed by a healthcare professional, but when it comes to your hair Voodoo Hair Lounge is a one stop shop for your gluten free needs!
