Think of how many times when you shower you have gotten shampoo in your mouth. Everytime you do this, you could be getting gluten posioning, slowly but surely. I would change it, but for me even a crumb send me into anaphalytic shock.

I had this too. thought I was just strange, but apparently a lot us are! :P



I'm just beginning to sort out if I'm gluten intolerant. But speaking of rashes, I've had one in my scalp, forehead, checks, neck, chest and upper back that my Dermatologist doesn't know what it is. Thought it was acne and I tolk Acutane. It went away but came back as soon as I went off it. Of course I didn't know about gluten at the time. I've been gluten free for about 2 weeks now and I think it's getting better. It doesn't itch, but I can scratch little grains of sand like "things" off my skin. Does this sound like the rashes you guys are talking about? I haven't checked my shampoo and conditioner but I will now. Please let me know...I have to get rid of this rash. Summer is comming and it looks nasty. Thanks for your comments.

that sounds a lot like a celiac reaction to skin products. you should check all your products, probably at least one of them has gluten.

I was using Pantene Volumizing Shampoo and Lever 2000 body soap. I didn't have a rash, but started itching all over my stomach and sides. I figured it had to be either the shampoo or the soap causing this. I switched to Suave BioBasics shampoo and Suave Naturals Ocean Breeze soap. After about 3 days, no more itching. It's a lot cheaper too!.

I have always used Pantene and I just read the ingredients on the bottle, no wheat. Maybe the newer products have wheat, the Pantene for different colors of hair, for brunettes, redheads, or blondes--I stick to my old favorites. I do not find any wheat in the ingredients. Fruitis is made by the makers of Pantene. Now Tressemme has wheat in it and I do react to it. Pantene is one of the only conditioners I can find that work with my hair--it's very thick and waist length. Aussie products work too. I am not giving up my old Pantene until I have further proof.

I am in the process of trying to use all wheat/gluten free shampoos and bath gels. I thought I was the only one feeling that way. I was using Druide lavender bath gel, it contains wheat protein, which I only realized after I experienced increased itching and dryness all over, after my showers.

I also share the feeling that it's better to eliminate all gluten, even in soaps.
Anyone have a suggestion for organic, chemical-free shampoo?

Have you tried the Giovanni brand? Even thier 'golden wheat' shampoo is Gluten free. I find their products in the health food section of my regular grocery store and in my health food store.

California Baby and Aubrey Organics (only certain scents I think) are both pretty good.

I've been using California Baby Super Sensitive lately, and I really like it. It also contains no sodium laurel sulfate--which I like. :)

Thx for the tips. good to know that Giovanni is gluten-free, I'll had that one to my list. California Baby , didn't think of using baby shampoo, good idea. I love the Aubrey skin care line, shampoos look good too.

A general question: I find that my skin was particularly dry, before going gluten-free. Did anyone else find that?

I used to get itchy bumps on my head and my scalp itched really bad! My hair also was starting to fall out. I then noticed that there were 3 wheat ingredients in my shampoo! Once I stopped using it it all went away!

I get a rash on my scalp from shampoos with wheat. I also get blisters near my hair and on my neck. They're not quite blisters, but not pimples either. I don't know whether they're DH, but since being gluten-free and switching shampoos, they've gone away.

I also get those little bumps that can be scratched off, separately from the rash and blisters. Some are deep under my skin on my chin and I don't know how to get rid of them. Sometimes they're there for months before they finally surface.

I know what you mean! You should really try the new shampoo and conditioner that comes in the bright green bottles and is called something related to sugar....... :unsure: nope still can not remember he name. But it is awesome stuff. If you have a Sam's card they sell it at most Sam's.
