Hey,

I'm not sure where the best source for information about this sort of thing is, but I can tell you what celiac friendly products I use. I use Thermasilk shampoo, conditioner, and hair spray; they have no gluten in them. I also use Irish Spring soap, which I know is a gluten free. Occasionally I use Herbal Essences shampoo, but stay away from the conditioner and hair spray, as they contain several sources of wheat and I've had reactions after using both.

I went gluten-free almost a year-and-a-half ago and did not used to have a skin reaction. But after a year of being gluten-free my skin started reacting to wheat too. I went to a local support group meeting last year and met a Mary Kay saleswoman. Mary Kay manufactures their own products and she took the time to research all ingredients to all products to come up with a list that is gluten-free. She was there to let the celiac community know products were available. I switched over to their products for my face, make-up, lotions, and body washes. I haven't had a reaction since -- it's been six months.

Hope this helps :P

Wow! I love my Mary Kay products (exfoliating face wash, moisturizer, lip mask and balm, and foundation), but since I went gluten-free I haven't been using ANY facial products except plain water and tiny amounts of concealer (Maybelline--I don't know if it is gluten-free, but I take great care to keep it away from my lips and off of my hands) when I go out in public. Are ALL May Kay products gluten-free, or only some of them? Is a list available online? Any further information you have would be greatly appreciated!

I also began being very sensitive to hair and skin related industrial products, to the point of not tolerating shampoos.

As a man, I was able to eliminate fancy hair products and I currently use concentrated tea (that I prepare myself) to wash my hair: boiled nettle, mallow, bur and camomile.

Very probable women will dislike this solution, but for me it works.

After developing an allergy to lauryl sulfate, I found a shampoo, which is wonderful, California Baby Shampoo for the supersensitive. Since using it, I don't need cream rinse. Shirley

I buy mine at Whole Foods in La Jolla, because that is the only Whole Foods near us. You will find sticker shock as the price is $9.00 for a bottle. But that stuff really lasts a long time, longer than any shampoo I've ever tried and a bottle seems to last me many months. At least now my head is not broken out in a scabby rash. Good luck on Finding it. I think they also have a web site where it can be purchased. Try a search. Shirley

A week or two ago I bought from Whole Foods Natural Clarifying shampoo and Natural Lite Conditioner by Pure & Basic. Eacn 12 oz bottle is $4.69. Both are organic, no gluten among ingredients. My hair used to be dull and lifeless for years. Now it looks almost like normal hair should look. BUT... I just noticed there's citric acid in the shampoo. From this board I learned that citric acid my derive from gluten-containing grains. Anyone has any info on that?

I use pan-tene prov shampoo and I do not have any problems with it. Also for

the wal-mart lovers ; they have an equate brand that says compare to pan-tene

pro-v and it works just as good with no problems. I use Rave hair spray and it

works really well. I have to watch out when buying hair,skin, and make-up

products because I have both the digestive and the dermatolig herpetiform

reactions to any celiac products. :angry: so I pick and choose al my products

very very wisely :D

Hope this helps some of you out B) ;

Thermasilk is gluten-free? That's great! Did you ask the company? I am looking for a gluten-free shampoo that protects the hair from heat.

I'm kind of a shampoo/conditioner snob and prefer the salon quality products. I use the Paul Mitchell "Instant Moisture" Daily Shampoo & Daily Treatment. For those who don't need as much moisture as I do (living in Utah!) - I've heard that the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil products are also gluten free - but be sure to check the labels :)

I love this stuff though! :) I have found the typical brands I buy in the store to be waxy & ineffective (leaving my hair frizzy & dry), so I don't mind paying a little extra. Plus, the salon stuff comes in huge bottles that last forever - so I don't think I end up paying much more for them at all!

I am still mourning the loss of my Humectress though :( *sniff*

OH! For moistuizer - I've also noticed that the Biolage intensive moisture conditioner (the one in the jar) doesn't contain any gluten. Check the label for yourself - but that's what I'll be buying next! :)

Are any of these fragrant-free?

I would like to use a non-fragrant gluten-free shampoo.

Thanks!

I have tried the shampoo and conditioner from the Gluten-Free Savonerie and like them. I think that all of their products are free of fragrances, too. Their site is www.gfsoaps.com.

MySuicidalTurtle: The California Baby Super Sensitive is Fragrance Free. Our whole family uses it.

Judy 04: You can purchase the products directly from their website. The Super Sensitive Formula can be used on both hair and body. On the front of the bottle in addition to saying it's gluten-free it is also free of many other allergens. :)

Do you have to have gluten free everything? I mean even products like shampoos, soaps, etc. Wow, I was overwhelmed by just food having to be gluten free. Is that for everyone or just people who have the type of sprue that effects the skin?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

The concern is that the suds wash down your face and get on your mouth and hands and face and could be transferred to food or whatever and you would be exposed to gluten. So, yes, you should be careful of soap, shampoo and conditioner. Sorry. :(

    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I agree. As an adult its a little easier to withstand the rolling of eyes and exaggerated sighs from people who think you are over reacting and being too fussy.  My youngest has anaphylaxis to fish and seafood and people are incredibly understanding and careful - but it seems celiacs has become a "fad" due to gluten intolerant people removing credibility from true celiacs.  Adults can argue but kids are vulnerable. Socially its really isolating for them.    I totally relate to the waiting on endoscopy. For my very sick 12 year old the 8-9 weeks we waited for sheer hell and I felt I was feeding him rat poison. Now my 17 year old is waiting on his, booked for later this week.  Its a total nightmare waiting knowing you can start the healing if only you could stop feeding them gluten.  But I figure for future reference, having a solid diagnosis via biopsy is important. Good luck to you and your son.
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Hugs to you and your daughter. My son and I are in the same boat, or at least,  paddling alongside your boat.  At their age being scrupulous about their diet is not only incredibly hard but socially isolating. Adults consider celiac people to be a pain so imagine what their young friends think.  Feeling so unwell and having no energy adds to their distress. And the thing is - I don't think at that age that they really understand that even the slightest bit of gluten will set them back badly.  I know my son is convinced one sweet won't matter. It really really sucks.  
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      No one in my wider family gets it, although my sister is certainly trying to understand. She gets that I will bring all food for my coeliac kids when we come for meals and is okay with that.    For other social events, I will suggest the meal is at my place so I can control the gluten.  But my biggest battle is my children's father (my ex husband) who refuses to get it, and thinks I am being stupid and trying to prevent him seeing V.  I have offered that V can visit but not eat nor stay the night.  Ex does not have the means or the brains to manage gluten free meals.    At this point it looks like I may need to go to court to get an order to prevent V from being forced to go and get glutened. I really really hope to avoid this, but its not looking good. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I guess it's the "natural flavoring" which throws me off. It could or could not contain gluten and it's in so many products. I haven't been on a gluten-diet for as long as you...6 years. I may have bee undiagnosed and untreated for more than 25 years since i had signs that went back to chidhood. Yes, I have balance/anxiety/neuro issues. I know anxiety is connected to damage in intestines, but I don't know for sure if celiac causes balance/neuro issues. I was already tested for brain ataxia, but I didn't get too far on that. Well, there wasn't an exact test, but the neurologist noted that I was walking straight or something on those grounds so I must not have it. I know studies have shown Transglutaminase 6 antibodies indicate gluten ataxia, butthat test is not yet available to the public.  
    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Today is day 5 and I know it takes much longer to recover, but he is so ill today he has skipped school and is in bed asleep when he is not writing around in pain.   I will interrogate him later - there is a chance he ate something from his friends.

      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!
