Pantene.

9 posts in this topic

So before i went gluten-free I used and loved pantene.

About a year ago they could not confirm anything on their products.

When I called about a month ago, they said that they will list any gluten on the bottles, EXCEPT for the fragrance, because it is outsourced.

Here is my question would they have gluten in a fragrance??

Hey moongirl --

I use Pantene Conditioner with no problems -- on the flip side I accidentally used Aveeno products before (they DO contain gluten, and it says so right on the label, oops) and had a really bad reaction to it - never using Aveeno again.. But Pantene is OK for me.

I use Pantene with no problems. I have started adding two drops of tea tree oil to the shampoo in my hand, and my dandruff and itch problems cleared up, too.

That's a relief. I like the Pantene range and it works for my hair too. Thanks for the tip.

I ran out of Pantene and replaced it with an Avalon organics conditioner. I've been feeling worse and worse. This weekend I finally nailed down that it is the conditioner making me sick. I'm going back to Pantene!

If anyone has any good organic, gluten-free conditioners for hair in need of lots of detangling, de-frizzing moisture, let me know!! I'd like to stop putting all the artificial crap into the water supply, but can't find an organic conditioner that doesn't either make me sick or dry my hair out.

Last time I checked a lot of the Giovanni organic shampoos and conditioners were fine. I have used the Smooth as Silk conditioner which has been great for my frizzies in the summer. They have recently come out with skin care products also but I haven't tried those.

I switched from Nature's Gate Awapuhi shampoo and conditioner to Pantene Pro-V Flat to Volume shampoo and conditioner. Though I love the smell and the way it leaves my hair, the rash on my forehead is back. It's brightest right out of the shower. So I'm going back to NG Awapuhi. I experienced this once before when I switched from NG Awapuhi to the NG that contains Pomegranate, which turned out to have gluten. I don't see anything on the Pantene bottle that states it has gluten, so it should be interesting to see if the change will make the rash go away.

    • 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!
