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.

    • Hello! My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac non-biopsied about 6 months ago. When I recently went for my physical, I mentioned to my PCP that my daughter was Celiac, she said that I need to be tested. I took a blood test that day and here are the results: Anti-Gliadin IgA                     Gliadin Ab(s) IgA - 18.23U/ml    -      Standard Range: 0-15 U/ml   - Result: Positive My PCP told me to start a gluten-free diet right away and she will re-test again in 6 months. I was expecting a full panel, like my daughter had, not sure if it is necessary or not. We elected not to put my daughter through a biopsy, as she was just recovering from a ruptured appendix and her GI Dr. agreed that he numbers were so high that she was fairly certain w/o biopsy that she was Celiac. My DD feels so much better. Do you think this test is enough for me to start the gluten-free diet? I actually have cut way back on gluten, as I somewhat eat what my daughter eats. So my test may have reflected that decrease. Should I ask for more testing? Is this test sufficient? Thanks for any assistance!!  
    • That's hard.  You can try the "I come to be social,"  "I have serious food allergies", "I only come to drink"...... whatever might feel comfortable.  I know celiac is not an allergy but more people understand if you say celiac is like a severe food allergy.  Do go, have fun.  Don't let food stop you.  Yes, people give looks but honestly they get to know that this is just you and hopefully they will come to accept it. 
    • I thought it had all died down too so I started buying them for my celiac daughter. 4 boxes were fine. The 5th made her very sick for over a week.  Beware!
    • Agree!  That is a difficult spot to be in.  I have a friend who insists she can cook for me.  I have tried the "I come for the company, not the food", "I am celiac.." etc.  I finally gave up and said "I love you but no!".  It's very hard.  Very hard!  But stay strong.
    • I never ate at the fair but always "rewarded" myself with a nice glass of wine at the wine and beer patio!   The corn on the cob might be ok but I have to agree with the poster who mentioned that stuff at the fair probably isn't terribly clean.  Stuff your purse with snacks and enjoy.  My partner would feel bad about eating in front of my and I would just - I don't feel bad so that's your problem, not mine! lol
