My hair is pretty fine and to put it bluntly... FLAT. I have a hard time finding a shampoo conditioner combo to give me a good lift. I have found that most volumizing shampoo/conditioners usually leave my hair dry and sort of static-y. Neuma NeuVolume is a great line and I want to share some facts and my opinion.
Neuma is a brand that is sold exclusively at fine salons.
Sometimes I feel that the reason a lot of shampoos dry your hair out is because they are made with a bunch of unnecessary chemicals. Neuma formulates their products with no synthetic fragrance, sulfates, parabens, 1,4-dioxane, phthalates, glutens, neurotoxins, aluminum compounds, glycols, formaldehyde, donors, ureas, carcinogens and environmental pollutants.
Each of these products contain the brand's signature Phyto Color Complex and Phyto UV Shield to protect hair color, and provide nourishment. Not only does this line volumize my hair but it claims to also extend the color of treated hair. I have no way to test that because my hair is all natural in color. I do find that my hair feels thicker, fuller, and has more body. I used to only shower and such in the morning because I felt that it was the only way to get a nice bounce to my hair but with this line I have been showering in the evening and the bounce is still in my hair the next day.
The Shampoo is sulfate-free and contains lots plant extracts and essential oils plus coconut fruit extract to smooth and soften hair. It also includes sunflower seed oil to provide UV protection while adding shine and shielding hair from heat damange, and shea butter to add moisture to help prevent frizz.
The Conditioner is lightweight, detangles, and gives hair dimension plus shine. In addition to containing plant extracts an essential oils, this conditioner contains a few other things: Tapioca starch to help soften and smooth hair, vegetable protein to strengthen strands while adding shine, pomegranate extract which is a natural exfoliant, and vegetable based glycerin to balance moisture without adding weight. I think that the conditioner is excellent and giving the right amount of moisture without weighing the hair down.
In the picture above the shampoo is on the left and the conditioner is on the right. The shampoo has an orange-ish-tan color to it and is quite thin. The conditioner is thicker in texture but spreads really easily through the hair. I really enjoy that these wash out of my hair with no trace of product left over. I also want to mention that the scent of this is nice and light and sort-of herbal-y. I can barely smell a trace of the scent after I am done shampooing and conditioning. I know a lot of people are sensitive to fragrance and I feel that they would really enjoy this line.
I give Neuma NeuVolume two thumbs up. I enjoy this line so much and would recommend them to anyone. These retail for $24 each and are only available at fine salons. Here is a link to the information directly from the Neuma site.
I hope you found this review helpful. I am in love with this shampoo and conditioner combo and plan on purchasing more as soon as I run out. I found some great links on Amazon, so if you don't have a salon near you that sells this line it is available online.
