Shampoo & Conditioner

I've been getting little sores on my scalp recently. I think it is because of my shampoo. Maybe I am more sensitive lately. What kind do you all use? Your responses are greatly appreciated!

There are three brands that I alternate between, as I get bored easily :)

Dove will list any wheat, oats, barley, or rye, and I currently use their advanced color care shampoo and conditioner--bonus: it smells great, too.

Garnier Fructis shampoos and conditioners are gluten-free, and they work well.

Last, Neutrogena has a triple moisture shampoo and conditioner I use, as I have dry hair. They also have other gluten-free shampoos and conditioners, which they provide on their gluten-free list, and the list is posted somewhere on this board (I remember seeing it not too long ago). They are also quick to get back to you if you email them.

Hope this helps!

I use shampoo and conditioner from The Gluten Free Savonnerie. I've been using their products for several months now and love them.

I use Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi shampoo. I use the Wella (color care?) conditioner.

I like them a lot, and it's all I have since I found out my Sebastian Laminates shampoo & conditioner have wheat amino acids. :( The gel is ok though.

Pantene products are gluten-free.. I just picked some up yesterday since I'm unsure about the brands I have. And Pantene smells so good and leaves hair so thick and soft :)

Dove and Pantene. At least you can understand the ingredients. But after corresponding with the companies, just check the labels. The ingredients can change.

I use Pantene, but when I emailed them, they gave me a cya response. They said they don't add any gluten, but that they can't confirm all of their supplier ingredients. So, I'm not sure if they are totally gluten free or not.

Suave and Salon Selectives are made by Unilever and will clearly list any gluten additives.

What is everyone's favorite gluten free shampoo and conditioner?

I'm looking for something I can get at the grocery store or Target or something.

(Not Dove though....it burns and makes my head itch!!:P )

I was using Herbal Essence, but found out mine was not gluten free...

Favorites? Least favorites?

It is wonderful to use a shampoo and conditioner that is gluten free, but it is also vital to try to find a shampoo and conditioner

without SLS or SLES. A health food store is your best bet.

SLS and SLES are detergents, which are basically glorified floor cleaner :o ...yuck I know..

It is hard to find shampoos and conditioners (esp. shampoo) without them in it...

The detergents will only serve to irritate your scalp even more.....

Try these:

Desert Essence is pleased to announce its newest line, Desert Essence Organics, which includes products that are 100% vegan, wheat free, and gluten free. This line introduces innovative hair care, body care, and pomegranate-based facial care products that calm, moisturize, renew, rejuvenate, hydrate, and energize.

I ordered some of the California Baby brand a couple months ago, it is nice but really out of my budget. Someone here had mentioned Shikai and I finally found it in Wegmans last week and it seems to work well for me. I am also allergic to soy so finding a shampoo and conditioner that doesn't leave me itching has been tough.

Paul Mitchell will send you a list of their gluten free products. Not all of their products are gluten free and their only source of gluten is from wheat which is usually clearly printed in the ingredients.

I had to stop using my awesome vegan conditioner, worked so nicely on my hair! (I forget the brand) because wheat protein is listed as an ingredient. Booo.

However, just this past year ago or so there's been an abundance of Live Clean products in the grocery stores and pharmacies here in New Brunswick Canada. They are labelled vegan and free of many ingredients people are concerned about, like SLS. Their website says all their products are gluten free though too, even though it's not on the label or anything. YAY! I love their handsoap and body wash, but am dubious about their hair products. Bought some, haven't used it yet.

As to glutening yourself with shampoo, well, personally I get it in my mouth every time. I could totally see someone who generally doesn't though. Just how you wash your hair really. That said, I would still be concerned about CONDITIONER with gluten, because conditioner doesn't really wash out of your hair. It's designed to coat it, so that you could easily get gluten on your hands just from touching your hair. I guess we should all be careful to not put our fingers in our mouths without first washing them anyways, but habits like picking my teeth are hard for me to break. And I couldn't imagine never touching my hair during the day.

    • Why would your PCP go against the advice of leading celiac researchers and the American and British GI Associations?  The endoscopy/biopsy is still the gold standard for diagnosing celiac disease.     I understand your daughter's  situation, but I would get a second opinion from a GI before going gluten free.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gut.bmj.com/content/early/2014/06/10/gutjnl-2013-306578.long#T2 http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/guidelines/global-guidelines/celiac-disease/celiac-disease-english  
    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do.
