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.

    • Healthy comfort food is hard to find in the supermarket—especially when you want it tasty, cheap and appealing to everyone. Rice pudding is the ultimate comfort food because it is found on almost every continent wherever rice is available (none was found on Antartica during my month there). Rice cream or pudding has many names- Arroz con leche in Spanish, Risalamande in Scandinavia, Pulut hitam in Malaysia, Riz bi halecb in Lebannon. View the full article
    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
