Gluten-free Hair Gel For Curly Hair?
0

8 posts in this topic

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.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
