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.

I just read in Clan Thompson list of gluten free drugs that pantene pro v was unknown and that gluten was in the frangrances. Cb <_<

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. We offer lush, natural scents like sweet lavender, rich vanilla chai, lush almond, and tropical coconut. All of the Desert Essence Organics products are free of parabens, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, phthalates, artificial colors, silicones, EDTA, glycol, and petroleum-based ingredients.

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.

      I hear you Gemini. It's nucking futz!

      I went gluten free & never looked back! I have dh, the celiac rash. That makes it pretty darn easy to go gluten-free the moment you figure it out. I was not about to continue eating gluten for even one more day just so the medical establishment would be satisfied in my dx. There was not a moment of doubt in my mind that I had dh & therefore celiac. As it turns out, weirder than weirder than weird and the odds I can't even begin to imagine.... I have since, by sheer accident, had 2 docs officially dx me. Is that crazy or what??!! I did not go in asking for a dx nor even hoping for one. Frankly, I just plain didn't care what they thought. The medical community has failed me numerous times throughout my life so I don't have the highest regard for them. You are 54, I was 54 when I figured mine out. I have no kids so did not need to consider them in my decision not to go for an official dx. My parents had already passed away so that was not an issue. My brother had passed away so that was not an issue either. I did contact my nephew & tell him to let my sister know so she could get tested. So I have done my duty by her & she's an adult and a nurse & can make her own decisions. I do urge people to go for an official dx whenever possible, especially when they have kids or other 1st degree family members. If it's doable for them I think they should make a good effort at it. Also, there are certain people who express they don't think they can stick to the diet without the official dx. I think those people should pursue a dx with all their might. I have never had the slightest problem sticking religiously to gluten free eating. I have never doubted myself. I know you have tired HARD! Super, super HARD. I commend you for your dogged pursuit. I would not, could not blame you for giving it all up & just going gluten free this instant. That is a choice only you can make but I fully support whatever decision you make.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Your brother sounds like mine, Squirmy.  He was a Type 1 diabetic and had flaming celiac symptoms to boot but his docs always, always blamed his diabetes on everything.  He lived in the country and the docs in his state just were so far from being Celiac savvy.  I doubt they ever diagnosed one. His health was failing so badly that in the end, with the 3 MONTHS of non-stop diarrhea going on, he became so dehydrated that he had a heart attack and died last August 4th. His biggest mistake was trusting these idiots completely.  I think his brain was so messed up and confused that he just couldn't understand what I was trying to tell him.......that good ole brain fog.  He did what celiac's may do when left untreated for years and years.....they slowly fail and then die.  It still is extremely painful for me to think about because I was close to him.  I still see many people in my life that I think have it because of their extreme symptoms. Listening to them complain that the doctors aren't helping them. Try suing them for malpractice too......it would be too hard to prove. And then we have those who know there is something very wrong but won't give up wheat bread because that is unfathomable to them.  This disease can drive anyone crazy, for many different reasons.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
