HI
I've had some REAL issues dyeing my hair for the last year.
Just afraid I might have to give it up. I want to cover up the grey.
I'm not a vain person just like my hair so much better with some natural color.

I now take my shampo and my conditioner to the salon. I don't let them put any of their products...used them at the same shop for 20 years..not coloring that long. After dx didn't know about these issues.
The shampo had 4 kinds of wheat and the conditioner had 3... :ph34r:

I'm scheuled to get it done before our CA trip but want to find an alternative.
I found some at Martindale's natural foods here in Springfield PA. They let me call Canada from their store to ck the ingred. (THEY ARE THE BEST) but the rep wasn't there and left # to call me back. :blink: Yeh, I know we've all heard that one before.

I don't have the name of what I bought yesterday but will post when I get back on the computer.
One other product they had there had 2 wheat ingred listed right on it (thanks for the new Labeling Law) :lol:
One of MNF employees was so helpful and told me she used it. (doesn't have celiac disease) and liked it.
Think it was the amonia that it didn't have..will have to ck ...
Looking forward to hearing from you experts out there.

Judy,
Sorry I don't have an answer for you, but I am interested in what u find out. My daughter has informed me that I need to color my hair. (Love the honesty). I was wondering how you knew your shampoo had wheat in it. Is there a listing somewhere of all the funky names for wheat ? thanks marcia

I use Nice and Easy by Clairol and have never had a reaction (and I'm super sensitive to gluten). The ingredients for all the coloring and conditioner read fine, and I've used different colors about 4 to 5 times now. It also gives a nice color.

Hi Judy--I just got back from the salon an hour ago! I went in for a cut and blow dry. I had washed my hair in the shower this morning--asked the stylist to only rinse my hair with water and not use any products at all in my hair. I do this every time and it's not a problem. As far as the color :ph34r: , I use Feria by Loreal. I do it myself at home. I called Loreal and was told Feria had no gluten ingredients whatsoever--their words. If you're trying to cover grey hair, the dyes without ammonia may not be strong enough. I have used the non-ammonia, semi-permanent products--I've tried Natural Essense and Color Spa. Those wash out after about 3-4 weeks, and really don't cover grey as well (I only have a few greys ;) ). I would ask about that when you talk to them.

Marcia--Wheat can be listed by other names, there is a list here--you can do a search for it, but on all the shampoo labels I've seen the wheat is listed as wheat or wheat starch.

Went gray at 21 -- have colored my hair for years -- went for a time that I didn't (couldn't get out to get the stuff), and saw a good look at my roots --- WHOA :blink: :blink:

I use Clairol color and use a 30 volume creme developer. It's easy to use, and cheap. All you have to do is mix equal parts, then start at your roots and go. I buy it at Sally beauty supply. Don't know if it's gluten-free, but I make sure not to get it into my mouth, and it doesn't give me the horrible rash that things that I know contain gluten have given me.

Given how gray I am, that I'm only 43, and that my husband looks about 20, there's NO WAY I'm not going to color it -- that's the only time I'm NOT gluten-freaky!!!!! (Vanity, thy name is Lynne . . . :P )

You might look into considering a natural henna dye. It won't last as long as permanent dyes, but then, you won't get that odd thing with the roots going on either. Many health food or natural food stores carry henna hair color. There's a limit on what you can do with a natural dye like henna, but it may help. (As an interesting note, henna also conditions your hair. And they advise washing the hair with coffee for dying grey hair more effectively.)

thanks to all you for answering me.
I'm printing this and taking to store after we can dig out
this is what i purchased..

Herbatint says covers gray hair no ammonia my color was 'light golden blond 8D
It says haircolor gel permanent.
I HATE TO SAY THIS but i'm so afraid to use it. I'm such a clutch and can't get my left arm to go above my shoulder becasue one of the many tumors is pressing on a nerve...Oy.

I haven't called today as it's Sat.
It's a Canadian phone #
Think it will cost me a mint to call.
Karen, or someother canadian, would you be willing to call # 1-877-699-4400 It says too free. Would that cost me.
Judy in Philly
My hair dresser could put it on for me or i could have her do one of the ones you've recommended.
Would you believe that the gal who helped me at Martindales, said one of their employees also does hair and i could call her at work and see if she'd be willing to do it...Isn't that store amazing???? :)

What happens if someone with celiac uses hair dye/shampoos/conditioners with gluten? I have been gluten free for a few months but haven't altered my hair regimen.

My stylist uses bleach ;) -- I'm wearing it a bit lighter than in my avatar .... but even before I didn't worry about the color since it's so infrequent and she washes it right after. I read all the bottles of what she washes/conditions my hair with and none have wheat. I know right away if they do because I'll break out in a rash on my scalp (wish I knew what that was!).

I am gluten intolerant and I cannot use anything with wheat as far as shampoo or coloring. It's not that I swallow it but it stays on my scalp for a long time despite thorough rinsing and it irritates it and makes it itchy, same with cosmetics, etc. I use mostly Dove products and garnier fructis shampoo, and I'm getting ready to try the Feria by Loreal which is gluten free. I don't know why this happens, I had a Negative biopsy, negative genetic tests, but positive blood work. Everyone is different. perhaps you won't be that sensitive. I also have problems at the dentist which you might not be aware of. Good Luck!

The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this,always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed on my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers-Helen Keller

It depends on the person. For me I get a rash and my hair falls out. I'd rather be gray than bald. When I did color my hair, I gave it up for now as I have a DH sore that just won't go away (5 months now), I used Loreal Casting Spa as a temporary 28 shampoo color and Preference if I wanted a permanent one.

Also a quick note as to the use of henna, do not use henna if you have any form of hair dye on your hair already. I wish I could remember what happens but the need for total grow out always stopped me from using it. I started going grey in my teens and never saw my natural color till my late 40's. :huh: :D

I am wondering about hair products because I have had a ton of hair loss over the past couple of years and believe it is related to malnutrition- I have been gluten free for a couple of months and it seems like I am not losing as much hair but am wondering if I should also change my hair care products and stop highlighting my hair. Does anyone know the mechanism for hairloss in celiac?

Also a quick note as to the use of henna, do not use henna if you have any form of hair dye on your hair already.

The henna reacts with the metallic dyes to form new and stunning colors, like deep blue-green.

And it can't be filxed, you have to grow it out.

I use Loreal Couleur Experte in France but I know they also have it in the states. Its a kit that has a hair coloring and highlighting all in one. It doesnt list any wheat in the ingredients and I have not had a reaction to it - but I am not certain its 100% safe. I just sent an email to Loreal in Paris to be certain of its contents. If I hear any information I will post it.

My scalp will feel extremely sunburned and sore to the touch if I use products with wheat. I didnt even realize that it was the Gluten until I read some information on this forum about wheat in cosmetic products, since then I read the labels carefully and have not had an issue.

If your hair products have wheat in them, I personally would change them. I don't worry about the highlighting though. My stylist does it, then she washes it, so I don't touch it. Since she foils it, it doesn't even touch my scalp except maybe a little as she is washing it out. If I had hair color that was on my scalp and I was having a reaction, then I'd worry.
