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

I have found after many trys of lotions tyhat ST. IVES is the best and is within reason price wise. It even releives the terible itching

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.?
