I spoke with the company today and she confirmed that all the shampoos and conditioners were gluten-free. most of the hair styling products are too, but not all...she said that those would have to be called on.

I thought I also read somewhere that pantene was not safe anymore...can anyone confirm that?

This dictionary lists FDA-approved names.

John Frieda told me this week too that they can not say whether anything in their line is gluten free. I'm givng my products to a freind Sat.

Also, since I have to color my hair about once a month I found out that Nutrisse hair color is gluten free. Yea! No other companies I contacted regarding hair colors could tell me if their products were gluten free or not.

I contacted Loreal by phone about 2 months ago--they told me that the Feria Haircolor (the one I use) has no gluten ingredients whatsoever. I used to use John Freida--loved their straightening balm--but after getting the same response, I got rid of it all, too :(

Patti - thanks for posting about Feria being gluten-free as well. Mine isn't always in stock so I get several boxes at a time but it's good to know I have a back up if need be. The biggest thing that frightened me last fall about gluten was several people posted about not finding any hair colors that were gluten free. Being gray at 30 and now white, I was wondering if I could afford a good wig if I had to stop coloring my hair at this age. Sorry for me white hair at 42 is not okay....dont wont to look like my hubby's mother. He often mistaken to be much younger than he is.

L'oreal and Lancome are owned by the same parent company. Estee Lauder, Inc. owns Estee Lauder (of course), Clinique, Mac, Bobbie Brown, Prescriptives, Jane, Origins, Stila, Aveda, Jane, Tommy Hilfiger and LaMer. That's according to the book, "Don't go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me". When I contacted Estee Lauder, Inc. Their blanket statement for ALL of their products, including subsidiary company products, is that they would not guarantee that any of their products are gluten free due to the different companies from which they purchase their ingredients . . . (or something just as hokey as that -- I can't remember :( ). At any rate, thought that might help.

I did mention that the Pantene shampoos for different colored hairs are not gluten free, the ones for blondes, brunettes, or redheads contain gluten. The regular types do not contain gluten. I have used Pantene for years now and I react very quickly to gluten, they have never given me a problem and they are wonderful for my hair.

I use Garnier Nutresse haircolor too and it's great.

I have a reaction to Pantene..Actually I just figured that out! (slow learner?) Suave, Dove products are gluten free products, too! I was diagnosed 5 years ago w/ Celiac..I have had the dermatitis for years..Never figured it was the Pantene until I stopped. Is there a hair coloring that is gluten free?..

Does anybody know about herbal essences?

All the info on this thread is really old. I would re- verify the ingredients or check the more recent threads about this topic. Shampoos and beauty products change constantly with whatever the latest fad is. Read the ingredients.

Unless you are swallowing huge amounts on shampoo on a daily basis, you need not be concerned about this.
 
"There is no scientific evidence that the use of gluten-containing products
that are not ingested is harmful to persons with celiac disease. This includes individuals with
dermatitis herpetiformis.
According to Dr. Alessio Fasano, Medical Director of the Center for Celiac Research, University
of Maryland, "If you have celiac disease, then the application of gluten containing products to
the skin should not be a problem, unless you have skin lesions that allow gluten to be
absorbed systemically in great quantities.
"The reason why this should not be a problem is that, based on what we know right now, it is
the oral ingestion of gluten that activates the immunological cascades leading to the
autoimmune process typical of celiac disease."
There aren’t too many individuals on the planet who know more about celiac disease than Dr.
Fasano, so please, do not let anyone, including medical professionals convince you that gluten
protein can be absorbed through the skin and cause a celiac disease reaction. It simply isn’t
true.
If you still need more convincing, check out what Cynthia Kupper RD, Executive Director of
The Gluten Intolerance Group, has to say.
"While investigating the possible absorption of gluten through the skin, I have talked with
many regulatory organizations and research and development people in the cosmetic industry.
They all agree that gluten and all proteins are too large to be absorbed through the skin.
Therefore, topical care products that contain gluten do not need to be avoided by persons with
celiac disease and DH."

I spoke to both Garnier and L'Oreal reps today about their color lines. I was looking for something less expensive than going to the Aveda salon.  ...(turns out same company, Garnier & L'Oreal). They were not very nice. The L'Oreal rep was nicer than the Garnier people. They have changed their policy I was informed. They are no longer willing to discuss gluten over the phone at all. They offered to snail mail me a list of ingredients and I was told to look it over with my doctor. I said some things after that that I'll not repeat here. I got a supervisor on the line, bc I thought the girl was just being a smart@ss. Nope. Turns out they had a recent meeting and that is their new policy. They simply won't discuss it. I got super ticked. Now i needz a new phone.  :(    and I just bit it and ordered the Eco Colors home kit. Garnier can kiss my booty for good!

I have to disagree with the idea that you have to actively eat something for it to cause issues. I was having all sorts of eye allergies, and after my diagnosis, they vanished when I vetted my make-up and face lotion. As for hair products, I didn't change those out for over a year... after I figured out I as getting low-grade contamination from my hair gel, which contained hydrolyzed wheat protein! It wasn't because it was absorbed through my scalp, it was because the product got on my hands when I put it on and later when I touched my hair... which I then used to touch my mouth, my food, etc.

 

I have to admit that my scalp itches a lot less since I switched to gluten free products, and the low-grade contamination? Gone!

Allergies are different from celiac, as I am sure you know. :)

if you also have an allergic reaction to wheat, then sure,  it will cause itching.

But if you were to just wash your hands before putting them in your mouth or eating any food, the minute traces that could possibly

be in the hair gel & transferred to your hair  would not be a problem at all, 

if it makes you feel better to avoid all gluten-containing products, then that's what's best for you.

For those of you that stated that you have a reaction?  What exactly is that reaction?  Is it all dermatitis related, or does it cause other problems?

Actually, it was the Gastroenterologist who diagnosed my condition (a specialist at one of the top celiac centers in the country) who warned me to avoid low-grade contamination from products that I used on my hands and body. IgA is a form of antibody that is found in all of the mucosal membranes - eyes, mouth, GI, etc. That means even small amounts transferred to your  eyes, etc. via your hands can stimulate an immune response. It, in fact, may be why they continue to see high levels of tTG-IgA in some celiac sufferers who have removed gluten from their diet. Even thought they may feel much better, they continue to have an increased risk of developing lymphoma because of the continued inflammatory response in their system.

Just as celiac symptoms vary greatly, responses to different types of contamination can vary as well. I bet everyone has different stories. In my case, gluten-containing face products would get into my eyes and cause swelling and discomfort. My eyes only bother me if gluten gets in them - never if I eat it.  The hair product issue was different, because I would get mild contamination after almost every big event (low grade GI issues, brain fog) even when I was terribly careful. I finally realized that I usually wear my hair up with no product, but for parties I would wear it down with lots of product, and I would touch it a lot. Once I switched to a product without gluten, it was never an issue again. In fact, my mild dandruff/itchy scalp issues improved, but that may be a coincidence.  I am really looking forward to my next antibody titer, as I really hope to finally have my tTG- IgA back down to a normal level!

Once again, there is a difference between an allergy and Celiac. Are you saying that the tiny amount of gluten that might be on you hands and get into your eye is the reason people still have high celiac ? They do tell you that if you use products that might get into your mouth to make them gluten free. That is because they are going into your intestine where the reaction to gluten occurs.

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
