Last year Smith and Lund Salon in Kennesaw added a gluten-free line of hair care products to their offerings from Head Organics. This year they are sticking to their their goal of making it easy to find a salon that uses gluten-free shampoo, conditioner, styling products, and color products by adding L’anza organic line of color products. This has to be the first salon in the metro Atlanta area (that this Examiner has heard of) exclusively using gluten-free hair care products and they are all organic.
Their Advanced Healing Hair Care line has always been gluten free. As of this year every product and tube of color they make will be gluten free. The last product that is quickly filtering out of the warehouse, Trauma Treatment- a rinse out or leave in treatment for over processed hair that preserves color, was the last product to get a gluten-free transformation.
There has been debate in our community for a while now on whether it is important to use gluten-free hair care products. Some believe that hair care products are ‘swallowed’ every day when we shower so we should only be using products that are gluten free. This is not a concern for most on the gluten free diet; however, a Mom pointed out that some children/adults eat their hair. The amount of gluten ingested is minimal, but for those where it is an issue, it is recommended (by professionals) to use products that do not contain gluten.
Please support their efforts!
