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.

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.

This thread is from 2006. As the pp mentioned if you don't have a topical reaction you probably don't need to worry about it. I have topical reactions however (due to a wheat allergy) and do try to look into everything so I understand why you would ask. You will probably get better (and more up-to-date) answers by contacting the manufacturer directly.

Garnier Nutrisse original with avocado/grapeseed oil (2011) is gluten free.

I have very sensitive skin and haven't had any problems.

I do not use any sort of conditioner with any sort of wheat/gluten/oat products, I refuse to get that oily residue smeared all over the place.

While it is somewhat controversial over whether or not topical applications make a difference, those of us who have had longer hair and past problems with shampoos/conditioners are happier with the results of careful avoidance. Soy (why, oh why do they put this in shampoo) makes my scalp slightly itchy now, also, but in the past I've had some real intense reactions to shampoos and could never figure out the common allergen chemical.

edited to add if you want natural hair care tips you can check out the Long Hair Forum (even if you have short hair) for ideas.

Apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, and shea butter are your friends!

Ok, it's way expensive to start but after the initial cost, I cannot recommend dreamcatchers hair extensions enough! My hair was so dry from all my deficiencies, & I splurged (when I could affORD it, & got them). They stay inyour hair like your own normal hair & u can wash it less often & they always look great. U never have to color them. You just get your roots touched up every so often & I have a stylist who knows my health issues. So I get the roots (but my extenstions blend so well that I hardly see my roots until it's a disaster (which it never really is). Then I just get partial foils. My hair looks luxurious all the time. I wash it and let it air dry. I barely do anything to it. I can sleep in a braid & wake up with spiral curls. I can brush it straight. Instead of haIr cuts, I go every other month and have them pulled up. I'm seriously Ill (that's another story) so the extensions have been a great investment & it's nice to have pretty hair when ur sick & cant deal with worrying about it. Aa for conditioners, I used to search for the perfect products but I dont need them now! It's expensive, I warn u, but only for the initial hair.

    • New Celiac Doctor - Atlanta/Duluth, GA
      I can't help you with finding a new GI, but I can empathize with driving the 400!   I have family in the Northern Atlanta area and visit often.   How horrible that your account was so mis-managed! 
    • New Celiac Doctor - Atlanta/Duluth, GA
      Hello! I have Celiac Disease (confirmed by blood tests and endoscopy done in 2013) and was going to a doctor at Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates until the end of last year (2015) when they started charging me for things that happened in 2013 - two years late. I had since changed insurance and was forced to pay out of pocket for the charges or be sent to collections. All in all, I loved my doctor there, but was very unhappy with the way the billing was managed.  So, I found a new doctor and have seen her once. I like her very much so far, but have recently moved and my home is so far from her office it often takes me 1-2 hours to get there with Atlanta traffic. (Her office is at Emory St. Joseph's hospital.) I should say one of the reasons we moved to Duluth was to get away from Atlanta traffic. I don't want to change practices, but I'm considering it. Does anyone out there live in North Atlanta? Alpharetta, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Suwanee? And have a doctor in the area they would recommend that is NOT associated with Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates? I would rather drive 5 hours to see a doctor than go back to that group, no matter how good the doctors are! Any recommendations are welcome!
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Welcome!  Unfortunately, you would have to go back on gluten to get tested (8 to 12 weeks for the blood test and 2 to 4 weeks for the endoscopy).  Here are the tests: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am sorry that your doctor is so mis-informed! There are over 300 symptoms attributed to celiac disease and some celiacs are considered "silent" with no symptoms at all!  I personally was anemic and had no tummy issues that I was aware of at the time of my diagnosis.   There are other forum members who have Sjogren's who might have some good advice (@Gemini).   I wish you well!  
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Hi! This is my first post here. I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. I'm in the diagnostic process for Sjogren's, which my rheumatologist is very sure that I have even though my dryness symptoms are very mild. (I am positive for SSA, the autoantibody associated with Sjogren's.)  The symptoms I initially went to my GP with are: fatigue, hair loss, irregular menstrual cycle (very unusual for me), headaches (migraines, almost daily), elevated temperature, weight loss My GP did not do the blood test for Celiac disease. She opted not to because when she asked me if I had loose stool, I said "No, actually, I've been constipated every day for the last 10 years." She said, "Ok, no Celiac then."  ???????? During the diagnostic process, I also lost a pregnancy.  When I eliminated gluten because of recommendations from the Sjogren's Foundation website, almost all of my symptoms disappeared. I still have the hair loss, but no headaches, fatigue is better, cycle is regular, and I'm back to my normal weight. Even my temperature is closer to my norm. I feel like an entirely new person. I still sometimes have mild dryness symptoms but nothing that would have prompted me to go to the doctor without the other symptoms. Should I make an appointment with my rheumatologist and try to get tested for Celiac disease? Has anyone had a similar experience? And how hard do you think it will be to get tested? (Like most doctors I've worked with, my rheumatologist likes to be the one who makes the suggestions.) Thanks for any input! Kristen
    • frustrated and not feeling well
      Hello, how long did it take to get back up? I quit the pepcid and started iron but the ferritin dropped from 74 in December, to 49 in March and 33 a couple of weeks ago.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
