I don't quite understand why we have to be careful about hair dye.... Does the dye absorb through our scalp? It can't be because of the hands, because we wear gloves when we apply it..... Is it only celiacs with DH that have to worry, or all of us?

Thanks for any input.....

Well, I know that the gluten would not be absorbed through the scalp. Gluten molecules are too large to be absorbed through the skin. Obviously, a shampoo should be gluten-free.....after all, it could get in your mouth, eyes, etc. I had actually been thinking about that lately, cause I thought I had read to be careful about it, but didn't remember why. Hmm.....could it be something about if your hair gets in your mouth? I don't really know, but I had been thinking about that the past few days.

I cannot imagine why hair dye would be a problem. However, some people want to make sure EVERYTHING they use is gluten-free, which is OK.

I'm not an expert, but I have experience with the hair dye sensitivity. I have celiac disease and DH. Most hair dyes leave me with DH blisters in my scalp and on my face. It doesn't bother me on the inside, just on the outside! (And I hope no one is getting dye in their mouth. I don't think that's very tasty!)

Hi,

I don't have DH, but after I went gluten-free my scalp started to itch,
so i stopped using shampoos with wheat, but it still itches.
I use scalpicin for the itch. I am terrified to use any coloring
or perms. One time I had a perm and my scalp burned
for weeks. That was before I went gluten -free. My theory is that
I have a skin sensitivity to a lot of products and have to be careful.

I get my hair colored too, no problems with that in the past. But I think my shampoo may be affecting me??? I thought I'd read somewhere that those with celiac disease may become sensitive to other products down the line (such as hair color, shampoo, detergents, etc...) Can't recall where or when though. I'm gonna have to look through some old celiac disease research stuff. I have binders full. Maybe speak to a stylist regarding your sensitivity and see and he/she can recommend anything. Perhaps speaking w/ a dermatologist would be beneficial too.
