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. :(

    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      I can not say as I have never gone to one or researched the topic.    I would bet that an acupuncturist would be a better choice.  I found it helpful with pain management for a shoulder injury.  It allowed me to heal faster and to do all the things physical therapy therapist wanted me to do without using drugs.  But, finding the root cause of your pain is more important in the long run.  
    • Teeth And Gum Problems
      At age 32, I was told I had severely receding gums and my dentist thought it was very odd. I had the burning mouth syndrome. I could barely eat anything with salt. Then I grew ill. I started to eat soda crackers and water and even that was causing pain in my stomach. One day my boss said, "maybe you have celiac disease."  I'd never heard of it. I stopped eating gluten and got tested. Of course, my tests came back negative, probably because I had not been eating gluten. My gastroenterologist couldn't figure it out and told me to stop looking at the Internet. Over time and without the gluten my inflamed gums, sore mouth and overall mouth sensitivity disappeared, as did my pain in my stomach, my joints and even my dry eye disease. Years passed and I started eating gluten again, ended up in the hospital with severe asthma. The allergist suggested another round of tests and we found I have celiac disease. Recently, I've been under a lot of stress and reached for my go to comfort food, bread. My gums are so inflamed that they even broke open. How stupid of me. But yes, gum inflammation is definitely a severe side effect of gluten for me. My whole mouth hurts and my teeth are now beyond sensitive. My tongue is getting that burning sensation back too. I'm pretty sure my throat is swollen as it is hard to swallow. I'm not quite sure why in the world I would do this to myself when I know what happens. Stay away from gluten folks!!! I know better. Shame on me.  
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      UPDATE: I got my Celiac Disease (celiac disease) tests back and they were all negative which comforts me and also kind of confuses me more. They ran several Celiac tests and are mailing me all the paperwork. Next visit is with the Gastroenterologist at the beginning of March. I kind of feel so discouraged that I don’t have a diagnosis yet but relieved and selfish at the same time. Ironically a few days ago I ran into an old friend/colleague of mine and she has Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) and had the exact same symptoms as me, which was a ray of hope that this might be the issue, but I’ve still not been “officially” diagnosed.  Eliminating the gluten from my diet has helped in eliminating almost all of my bloating and most of the other random pains too, but this lower left abdominal dull ache is still bothering me. My friend/colleague expressed that her aches in that location took several months to eventually feel better. I think I’ve also noticed that dairy and a few other of the cross-reactive foods do actually bother me and I will be needing to cut them out till I heal as well. My friend/colleague thought that after a month, at which point my GI Doc appointment will be, that I should notice some sort of pain difference in my lower left abdomen as long as I don’t get cross-contaminated by accident if I am actually suffering from NCGS. Since I still seem to exhibit some occasionally bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation and my lower left dull ache but nothing else still makes me wonder. No fever. No blood in stool. No acute pain. No vomiting. No nausea. No shortness of breath. No loss of appetite. No headaches. Not tired. Don’t drink nor smoke. And when I sleep on my back the dull ache seems to vanish. And the PCP ruled out other organ issues that they normally check for. Hoping the GI Doc will do an ultrasound or sonogram, upper GI, endoscopy or colonoscopy or whatever, but I’m confused because if I don’t have celiac disease isn’t it true that none of these tests will detect NCGS? After taking my wife to the ER recently for what she thought was a heart attack which was, thankfully, only a hiatal hernia, that has left us with over a 10k hospital bill. Not sure how much insurance will cover yet and our money tree burned down years ago. So disappointed that there’s still no test for NCGS. My aches all seemed to have reached a pinnacle within a week or less last Thanksgiving. Is that how fast everyone else’s symptoms manifested as well? Thank you.
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      Completely agree.  Wait to get all of your celiac testing done before you try something like this.  If you test positive for celiac then the treatment is a gluten free diet.  It takes a while to feel better, especially if there is a lot of damage.  But, it does happen with time.  Your blood tests should be back soon?  Though it's hard to wait when you don't feel well, try to be patient through this.
