Gluten Free Mousse For Hair
0

6 posts in this topic

I wear my hair short and the top is spiked. I have to put mousse in my hair and the mousse I have been using has gluten in it. I just found out today, which certainly explains the itching I have been having on my scalp. Because I thought that might be the problem, I did not use any while I had shingles on my head and face for several months. When that healed, I went back to the mousse. Does anyone know of any that is a good product and does not have gluten in it. I really get tired of wearing baseball caps and would prefer to itch LOL. It is called vanity!

I use Giovanni products. I think (could be wrong) they have a mouse or gel. I buy at Ulta. You can buy online too.

I am sorry everyone, but I need an answer to my question and so I am bumping this back up.

We have over 29,000 members. Someone must be using a gluten free mousse. I don't need a gluten free jell, but a mousse. I have emailed Giovanni, like a member mentioned and I have not heard back. I called Ultra and they don't know. I have called Avon and no answer there.

I am hoping someone is using something that is gluten free that can be bought at Walgreen's or can be ordered online. Maybe someone else knows the name of a gluten free hairspray that is good.

I would change my hair style, but that is no longer an option. My hair is super fine and I have lost over half of my hair, because of the diagnosis of celiac being so delayed for years. If I wear my gray hair short and spiky, then I can hide how little of my hair is left.

So, I really hope someone knows of a mousse and maybe hairspray.

Thanks a bunch.

Hi Metta--I'm just seeing this now.....

I normally use their smoothing milk, but I have used an aerosol mousse from Garnier. I've found that a lot of their hair products are gluten-free, and the people who answer the phone at the 800# are nice and happy to look up the gluten status. :)

I just called them for you--the XXL Volume Thickening Mousse is gluten-free. I spoke to Irene @ Garnier--800-442-7643.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
