hello, I have recently been diagnosed with DH. How do I get a list of safe shapoo's, conditioners, cosmetics, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been being very careful in what I eat, and still breaking out. I called Pantene today, and the said they hide gluten in thier fragrances. Now I don't know what to use. HELP :blink: Thanks

Gluten isn't supposed to cause DH outbreaks unless you swallow it. My DH has never come back from gluten on the skin.

Two things come to mind. First, DH can take months to disappear after going gluten-free. And even small mistakes can bring it back.

Second, until you heal and get rid of the Iga deposits that are triggered into outbreaks, iodine can cause them. You need to avoid iodized salt and seafood with iodine. This is not permanent. You can resume iodine after a while.

Hi,

I don't have DH but I am gluten intolerant. I used to use Nexxus

shampoo but my scalp got increasingly itchy after going gluten-free.

I tried Johnson's Baby Shampoo but I still itched. I finally

heard on this board that Garnier Fructis (sp?) is gluten-free

so I tried it this week and my itchy scalp is almost gone.

I also use Dove soap, company said it would list wheat as an

ingredient so I felt ok by using it. I used to use Estee Lauder

makeup, I noticed that my eyes felt funny after putting it on, this

is always a clue for me, I don't know if anyone else has these

symptoms. Now I am using Cover Girl with 0 problems.

Anyway don't take my word for it because ingredients can change

so please call the company first and good luck finding something that

works for you..

It's hard to find a list of gluten-free Shampoos, etc. because so many believe that you have to eat gluten to be affected by it. I think this varies from person to person. I do get DH from contact (external) with things that contain wheat. I feel like you are better off just checking ingredients. Garnier Fructis works really well for me. Cheaper shampoos seem much safer- look at Target or the grocery store instead of a salon. Salon shampoos almost always have wheat protein or HVP Hydrolized Vegetable Protein which can come from wheat. And since everyone is different, you may not even react from wheat in toiletries- it certainly won't damage your intestines unless it gets inside you! My skin is just super sensitive so I have to check everything I use (detergents, hand soaps, hair color, etc.)

Thank you for the advise, I am going to do the trial and error thing. I have been trying to do a lot more reading, and learning. Does anyone know where I can get a list that tells me what ingredients are derived from? On the cosmetics, and shampoo's etc. they have all the ingredients, but they are a foriegn language to me. I have been diagnosed with DH since july 2004. It has been a long road for me, but I am learning :D Thanks for all your support.

Do any of you dye your hair? Which products work for you? I don't have DH, but I keep having problems when I dye my hair. The gray is overwhelming and depressing. Any suggestions? I have not found any of the henna dyes in my area.

Tiny86: If you find a list of chemical names and what they mean to celiacs, can you send it to me?

Thanks!

I am a hairdresser and my opinion is you should go for highlights/lowlights. As a person ages the skin tone lightens and you should go for a lighter color for your hair. You don't have to go blonde! Highlighting/lowlighting services stay off the scalp and touch-up time is a few more weeks further in between. The price is usually adjusted for three times more than all over color (6-8 weeks touchup), and is expected to last that long (18 - 24 weeks touch up for highlights).

My hairdresser uses a brand of hair color called "Framesi" and I looked carefully at the ingredients and didn't see anything that looked like wheat protein. It is like reading a foreign language isn't it.?

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
