Hi everyone,

Can anyone suggest a good gluten-free hair gel for curly/frizzy hair? Even though I'd initially decided not to worry about my hair gel, I've decided to try to using a gluten-free one for a while.

My hair is dry and tends to be very frizzy, so I need something that will encourage it to curl nicely instead of becoming like a halloween wig as it dries.

Thanks!

Alice

This one is really good! I have curly hair too.
Magick Botanicals Fragrance Free Styling Gel
Despite the brand name they do not use any "botanicals" in their products. They have very few ingredients and are made for people with sensetivities and allergies.
I don't think they use any soy or gluten in any of their other stuff, but I am not 100% sure.

I have extremely curly and frizzy hair. I finally found a company that deals only with curly hair. I use their products. Their shampoo and conditioner I use do have wheat in it :ph34r: , but their hair gel does not. It is a bit on the expensive side, but it is great for my curls. Even when I use a gluten free shampoo, I always use this hair gel. You can only order it online, unless you live in NYC. Its called Ouidad. www.ouidad.com check out their stuff, I know the wheat stuff is bad.. but when i went gluten free shampoos and such, I felt no different, so I save up the wheat stuff for special occasions... but the gel is completely gluten free. hope this helps! good luck!

Thanks for the suggestions, guys! I'lll check out the Magick Botanicals stuff. Also, what was the specific type of Ouidad gel you use, TinkerbellSwt? I used to use their Climate Control and loved it, but it has wheat proteins (ie, gluten) and wheat amino acids in it.

I use Dove Shape and Definition mousse on my hair. Dove is a unilever company and they clearly label gluten.

I am a member of a curly hair board since 3 years. If you are really interested in getting advice and help with products and stuff go there. They also sell stuff online (Curlmart) and have the greatest costumer service. They have tons of the top curly hair products out there, not Quidad though, which seems to love wheat in their stuff. I haven't seen that wheat free gel actually. Good to know.
www.naturallycurly.com It is a very friendly place and VERY active.

There is one brand that is gluten free, everything but 1 leave in, it is called Devacurl.

Just thought I'd mention it. ;)


I use Gluten-Free Savonnerie myself. It has proven to be just as good as any of the curly hair products I have tried (tons, I was a former product junky). They do not carry a gel though. I use their conditioer as a leave in and then I actually user their Shea Butter as a pomade.
But when I do want to use a gel I use Magick Botanicals, which is actually a little popular on the board.

Dove's Smooth and Soft Anti Frizz Cerme is also very good.

Well, I haven't ever needed anything like a conditioner, but I've read a lot of people find coconut oil (same as coconut butter) does a marvelous job. Apparently it only takes a tiny amount too, so you'd probably save money. You can get a sample before buying a whole jar, to test how well it works first. The sample would probably last quite awhile too. CoconutOil-Online offers samples of a high grade dietary oil (great for cooking and baking). Smells wonderful too :)

When I Googled it, I found coconut oil has been used for hair care for generations.
