I found out all my beloved Aussie products are unsafe, which may explain outbreaks on my cheeks! While it's nice to know these things, i have very thick hair that needs help! Suave never called me back.. I need a shampoo, conditioner and most importantly, a strong hair gel. ANY suggestions?? thank you!

I recently tried and love Marc Anthonys line. They are made in Canada but I found them at Rite Aid. They don't contain either gluten or soy ingredients, at least not the moisterizing Aromatherapy shampoo and conditioner, I didn't check all of them.

Another real good one is Giovanni, if you like organics. They do have soy protein though so it is out for me. It was what I used to use.

Suave will clearly label all gluten ingredients so just read the label and look for wheat or oats and you should be okay.

Suave will label WHEAT but not gluten specifically as it's not one of the main 8 allergies. they couldn't be sure whether their fragrance had gluten in it or not as it comes from a different company... ugh

This may sound very idiotic but isnt it considered gluten-free if there is no "wheat germ oil" or wheat proteins in it? Sorry, I am trying to convert an have been using Kiehls products...some of their stuff has wheat germ but the stuff I use does not...does this run the risk of cross contamination????

I have never had a problem with Aussie shampoo's or conditioners. Just because a shampoo or conditioner has alcohol in it, does not mean it is wheat! I react to wheat in any product that touches my skin and I have never reacted to Aussie, I am using Aussie shampoo now. I use Pantene products, as a rule. KaitiUSA just told me to try Dove, which I will, she says it works very well on her very thick hair. For years I have used the Aussie 3-Minute Conditioner and never had a problem!

I had a phone discussion with a L'Oreal rep last month and she said that Fragrances in general can be suspect (of gluten) and there's no way to tell if there's gluten in a fragrance (unless of course you have a reaction). She mentioned that unscented doesn't mean that there's no fragrance in it - it has a "masking agent." And that Fragrance free has no fragrance in it at all and has no chance of gluten in it.

I guess then, unless you get a reaction from a product with fragrance, there's no real way to tell if a fragrance is gluten free ....

it's not the alcohol, it's the fragrance that contains gluten in it. i called specifically to ask. they said they could not guarantee gluten was not in their products

My response was to someone questioning the alcohol in shampoo and conditioners and not the fragrance. I did specifically ask Pantene at one time about the shampoo I use and they did state it is gluten free and I have never been glutened by it, so I have always felt safe with it. The same stands true with the Aussie products I use.

Debmidge--Pantene has always stated that the color enhanced shampoo does contain gluten--the shampoos for blondes, redheads, and brunettes--that's why I never tried the one for brunettes--I did read that at one time. I always use their Color Revival Pro-V (made special for color treated hair), without a problem and I have used it for years.

Today, I went to J.C. Penney's Salon for a hair cut. I was looking over all of their speciality hair care products. Not only was I appalled at the prices, but the majority of them contain wheat protein, or wheat germ. They were unhappy with me when I would not allow them to wash my hair, I only allowed them to wet it down, then finally I did settle on a spray on conditioner that I felt was gluten free, but still was not sure--no hives though, so it must have been ok! Paul Mitchell lists wheat on the label, as did another. Bio Tex, I think was the name. I felt very unsafe in the salon, almost like asking if I could be seated 5 chairs away from all the others, so I was out of range of all the sprays! I had 6" cut off my hair :( I am still in some shock, but it does feel much lighter. She wanted to cut 6' more off, but I knew I would :( cry for 3 months then, I can't handle that much change. If it wasn't for all this thyroid mess, I wouldn't have cut it now! :angry: Darn doctors!

Korres sent me a gluten free list that includes:

almond proteins leave in conditioner spray

soft shine yucca wax

and the conditioners with herb balsalm, achillea and silk milk

these products are scented with the actual fruits/ plants. If you scroll down this forum you can see the whole list (lots of nice lotions, suntanning products and a good face cream.)

For the shampoo there is Burt's bees grapefruit and sugar beet super shiny shampoo and conditioner. I am not reacting to this; however, the shampoo has a strange sugar based cleansing agent that makes your hair feel pretty coarse if you don't use the conditioner with it.

I'm sorry, I never use Suave products, so I can't comment on them. They just can't handle my hair. My hair is very thick, and Suave conditioners, V05, White Rain--none of them work with my hair. I have to stick with more expensive products, much to my dismay. Even Dove, after Kaiti told me how well it works for her, it doesn't work for me--it leaves my hair with so much static, I could start my own electric company!!! :P

Garnier Fructis is a nice product too, but I still much prefer my Pantene. I was reading an article in Style magazine the other day about shampoo's and conditioner's. It listed several different brands, and rated them. It spoke very highly of Pantene, said it does not build up on your hair, it's a great product, and that it's comparable to many of the salon formulas--so, it still is my #1 product!!! I know my hair is very soft, managable, very shiny, and I get compliments all the time on my beautiful hair--so I guess I am doing something right!!!!

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
