Organic gluten-free Black Hair Dye
0

9 posts in this topic

Greetings,

Does anyone know of an organic gluten-free hair dye for black hair. My allergist thinks I may be allergic to the black dye that I am using on my hair I have really black hair and a very large white streak! Since I am toooooooo young for white hair I dye the roots about every 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. I am Italian and my hair grows so fast.

HELP!

Greetings,

There is a Sallys about an hour away from here. I will have to check it out. I just found out that Henna is also gluten-free. I have never used it, but am willing to try anything at this point. IS Whole Foods then name of a Store or Product Line?

Thank you so much

DON'T USE HENNA You can not use henna over a regular hair dye, it will actually say this on the box. It will cause your hair to break off or worse. If you want to use henna you will need to let your hair grow out completely and then cut off the dyed part.

Oh no! Thank you for the heads up! I have really long hair and that would be bad if it broke off! I just don't know what I am going to do!

I finally got so frustrated with sores and losing hair that I stopped coloring at all. I still have days when I stand in front of the hair color in the store and look wistfully at all the pretty colors. I tell myself every morning that I like my salt and pepper, that people pay good money for highlights that I have for free, someday I might start to believe it. :D A white streak can be quite dramatic, want to trade for my all over whites? Just kidding of course.

All the natural dyes at Whole Foods and every other natural store I have been to all have wheat. What is up with this. Only the Henna products don't. I think Garnier might be ok. It is not natural though.

You are so funny. I am 33 and teach 6th grade. The white streak may be a bit too dramatic, hehehe.

I will post more information if I find it.

    • sorry i did not see this until a year later.  i changed all my cat food to gluten free products.  right now i'm using a dry food made by Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost.  it has both dry food and freeze dried meat.  since my cats lick my face i had to make the switch.  i did not mean to remove your pets from your home.  they are loved ones and they can be eased into the diet if you have not already tried.  the wet food for my other cat is easier to find gluten free but it is expensive.
    • You might want to check out the Gluten Free Watchdog - just google it - and join. Very smart lady there who also has celiac disease. She's gone to the mats for us many times. She knows her stuff! 8 products are tested per month and there are many great articles and videos as well. She's the same lady who does the Gluten Free Dietician but on the Watchdog site, you get the test results of products as well as faster info. on breaking news.
    • After reading these few posts, I really think it all depends on where you live and the doctors attitude about the whole process. I think a biopsy is not always needed.  It depends on the circumstances and symptoms, etc.  Sometimes it is harder to piece together a proper diagnosis while other times it's so obvious.  Many people now do not even have GI issues, which used to be the hallmark of Celiac. This is why it is so difficult for some.  It would be nice if there was a very definitive test that was either positive or negative, with 100% accuracy!
    • Not to beat a dead horse here but I looked at the linked article you provided and it talked about exposure to animal feed in enclosed spaces, not driving or walking near wheat fields on a windy day.  Unless you are a farm hand, feeding cattle or horses with gluten containing feed in an enclosed, non-well ventilated area, it's not an issue. The Fasano diet is a short term diet for those who are slow to heal. Some people do have problems with grains and they found that putting them on a whole foods diet only, many of them went on to heal and could then consume processed gluten free food items like bread.  Lots of people do this in the beginning for faster healing. But it only works for people with Celiac Disease and you aren't even sure that is what the problem is. I posted this so anyone new to the diet reading these things will not become confused and think you cannot walk past a wheat field or a bakery. Inhaling visible wheat flour in a bakery is not a good idea for anyone with Celiac Disease and will make you sick/react and you won't be able to work in one but walking past bread or any gluten containing food is not cause for concern.
    • I react to certified gluten free breads, but it is NOT a gluten issue.  I react to Xanthan Gum.  I do just fine making my own baked goods from scratch subbing out the Xanthan Gum for guar gum.  My gluten-free hubby does well on commercially gluten-free baked goods.  It is just a food intolerance issue in my case.   Look to other ingredients.
