I use Clairol Nice and Easy, which reads gluten-free according to the ingredients, and I've used it 4 or 5 times without problems.

I used Garnier Nutrisse last time and really liked it, and it reads gluten free, too.

I use Feria by Loreal. I contacted the company and was told there was no gluten whatsoever in the product.

Thanks
Another forum, they are telling me that it is ok to use the color with wheat, because there is almost no chance you'll ingest it. And it will eventually wash off cause its just the protein that makes it stick...
im confused?!

Believe me, I'm no expert on this, but I was under the impression that the wheat was used for conditioning purposes. Some companies use silk or soy proteins instead. I don't see how it would make the color stick--my color lasts for a good 8 weeks.

I also think that the wheat would be washed away. If you do decide to try it out, just make sure that the shampoo or conditionor doesn't get into your mouth after the first week or so of washes.

Since you're darkening your hair and it's already been lightened previously, you might want to consider using a demipermanent color, which doesn't contain lighteners (bleach or ammonia) and is gentler.

Well, I did have my hair highlighted last summer, and the dye/toner had wheat protein in it. This is coming from a person literally never eats out and worries about CC constantly, so doing this was a *huge* leap of faith for me. And I was fine--I told my hairdresser the situation, and I kept my mouth firmly shut as she rinsed out the dye in case any splashed up in my face when she rinsed my hair. When I washed my hair at home afterward, I did the same thing and was very careful. I never got sick, and I'm micro-sensitive.

However, as nervous as it all made me, I don't know if I would do it again, but I know it's possible to do it safely.

yeah, I do... I don't worry about what's in my hair color... I used to be a hairdresser and I do my own color, but I buy the pro stuff at Sally's...

I have had some mysterious accidental glutenings, but I don't think they had anything to do with hair color.

Never thought about hair color ... and I thought I'd checked everything! :blink: Most of the time I just get bleached highlights ... my hair's pretty light anyway, but occassionally get lowlights, too, so I'll have to check them out next time; but just to be aware to be careful for some time afterward as I'll still get them. I would think the bleach would be okay. I've already checked all the other stuff she uses. Gosh, this list of things to check seems never-ending!

I don't trust myself with doing my own color. I only go to Aveda salons, and I know most of their stuff has wheat, but I haven't gotten sick. I'm just careful for a few days.

You don't have to avoid wheat in hair color unless you have a topical allergy to wheat. No one should ever get color into their mouths anyway and unless you are a hair chewer, it should not be a problem...as you have discovered. Color does not absorb into the skin as peroxide is used and that burns off quickly once it hits air.It's a chemical reaction.

I have colored my hair for years and use Framesi hair color. I have no idea whether it contains wheat or not because I don't ingest it. I have never, ever had any problems with it and I am super sensitive....I don't eat from shared lines as I have gotten sick from doing that. Hair color is not a worry unless there are other allergies at play.
