Am eager to cover up my newly sprouting gray hairs. Does anyone know of a gluten-free hair color or highlight? Please help!! I'm graying up by the minute!

Thanks!

I don't check my hair color. It's a personal choice and goes along with the TP, lotions, shampoo ect.

I have been gluten-free since April and my blood work was clear at 6 months and haven't had any flare ups either. So I don't think it(hair color ect) affects me.

That said I do not have DH....I think that people with that tend to be more sensitive to topicals.

I get my hair professionally colored, and my hair dresser uses Paul Mitchell hair color. I think they're all gluten-free (I don't know how many types they make...), but I would double-check (everything she's ever used on me is gluten-free). She called the hotline for me and asked about which of their products were gluten-free, and she said their customer service was extremely helpful. I also use some of their hair products that are gluten-free (there is a list somewhere on this forum of those).

Good luck! I hope your hair dresser carries Paul Mitchell!

I have my hair professionally colored with Wella products. I called and they are gluten free but they can't guarantee they are free from cc because they don't know what was bottled right before their products.

I use Herbatint and love it. It is an herbal tint and comes in both permanent and temporary forms (note: I have not checked the temporary forms for gluten statis). The thing I like most about them is you can mix just what you need and safe the rest for later use. I found the tint at Wegmans and also at my local health food store. The health food store doesn't carry it regularly but they order it when I need it so even if you don't see it in yours ask and they may be able to get it for you.

One last caution, the tint has a sample of their conditioner called Royal Creme that sample is NOT gluten free, I just toss it into my 'donation bag' for my local thrift store.

Sorry jmengert--every Paul Mitchell product I touched at the hair dresser a few weeks ago, contained gluten, it was listed clearly on the product, such as: wheat germ! Paul Mitchell is not safe for celiac's.

I use Garnier Nutrisse and have for several years. I have used L'Oreal and Herbal Essense, but prefer Garnier Nutrisse, but then I stick to the same color all the time, I just like to keep the gray covered.

Oh, there are a lot of Paul Mitchell products with gluten, but they also have many without, and the gluten is always clearly listed. I've been using them for a year without problems, and I am super sensitive, so the ones I'm using are fine.

Not all Paul Mitchell products have gluten.

Awaphui shampoo and contioner and styling products don't have gluten.

Shampoo One does contian wheat germ oil.

I use both but there are some P.M. products that don't contain gluten for those who still want to use it!

Ok, I stand corrected about some Paul Mitchell Products, all the ones I checked out had gluten in them. I'm glad your haircolor is gluten free.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
