futuresflowerchild added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsGluten In Hair Productshi my name is michelle and this is my very first post.
I'm 24 and a hairstylist.
before being diagnosed my skin was always itchy, i never broke out in a rash but i would constantly be scratching it.
shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac's and cut gluten out of my diet i started breaking out in a rash on my leg's and stomach.(small kind of pimpleish blister like bumps that turned into a scab after scratching to much).
i did some research and found out that gluten is hiding in my health and beauty products. and sure enough i was using body lotion that contained gluten. i switched to a non-gluten lotion and the rashes went away! Also my skin wasn't itchy and im not always scratching!!!
so now the real problem. i went back to work last week, as i mentioned im a hairstylist.
well ever since i went back i come home every night with a migraine that i didn't have when i left home. ( i have gotten migraines that started when i was in hair school. my dad always said that the smells of all the products, dyes and sprays were causing my migraines, i didnt want to believe him).
as well my hands, wrists and lower arms are crazy itchy. so i started looking at what is in the products and sure enough there is gluten in some of the haircolor, the shampoos and conditioners, the lightener, the products including most of the hairsprays in the salon as well as in the gloves we use.
i get the gloves are an easy fix. but the rest of it? the salon i work at is just a small family owned buisness and alot of the products we buy are on sale at a local wholesaler. so we dont always get the same thing.
what should i do? im lost as it is this whole thing is very new to me and my whole life seems to be changing because of it.
i dont know if its fair to my body to keep poisoning it?
is it fair to my well being to come home every night feel horrible?
any insight would be grat thanks a bunch!
