Hi everyone! I was just wondering if anyone knows if Revlon Colorsilk hair dye is gluten free? I am new to this and there are so many ingredients, that although I went through all of them, I am still confused. Some are definitely questionable. I can NOT stop dyeing my hair. Gray at 35 is not cool. :-/

I don't know what the ingredients are but I wouldn't worry.  Dye your hair, just don't eat it.   :D

You don't have to stop dying your hair. I dye my graying hair all of the time!

Not sure that any hair dye products would be an issue since you are not ingesting them. 

I was gray at 30 (I know, not fair!) lol and started dying it then. Not gonna be white. Nope, no way! lol

Garneir will clearly label gluten ingredients. I use their shampoos and conditioners and back when I was still concerned about getting rid of gray they were the brand I used.

Thanks everyone. My doctor said that I need to watch everything I put on my skin, breathe in, etc... I am HIGHLY sensitive and in the most progressive stage of Celiac's at this point. He pretty much told me to not even look at gluten. Ha! That is why I am so concerned right now.

Thank you Ravenwoodglass! I will go take a look at their products. I already have a box of Revlon though, and I've given away enough crap already. I am also wondering if the hair dye is what is causing my hair to fall out so much. Did anyone else have this problem? I am using organic, gluten free shampoo and conditioner, so it can't be that.

I never heard of "progressive stage Celiac".  If you go gluten-free, it shouldn't be "progressing"

 

Here is some info from Celiac experts.  If you are not ingesting it, it should be fine.

 

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/is-hair-loss-associated-with-celiac-disease

Is hair loss associated with celiac disease?

Hair loss can certainly happen, especially in young adults, but more so as a result of nutrient deficiencies than through association with celiac disease.

 

 

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/what-ingredients-should-i-avoid-in-cosmetic-products

What ingredients should I avoid in cosmetic products?

Gluten is only toxic to celiac patients and patients with dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) if ingested. Because gluten cannot be absorbed through the skin, the use of cosmetic and shampoos containing gluten has not been shown to be detrimental to patients with celiac disease or DH. However, we do recommend gluten-free lip products, hand lotions and other products that may end up near the mouth. And, in the case of children, a gluten-free shampoo would be wise.

There're stages 1, 2, 3, 3a, 3b, and 3c when it comes to how far the disease has progressed...meaning how much damage it has done. I am at stage 3c. Maybe I worded it wrong. Sorry. Also, I live in Germany, so I don't see a US doctor for this. They may have a different way of "classifying" the damage that gluten has done to the body.

Thanks for the information! I am going to pick up Garnier today. Looked at it online and they have my color too, so that's great! :-)

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
