Looking For Store-Bought gluten-free Shampoo And Conditioner
Posted 27 November 2010 - 12:37 PM
I've seen where you can order things online but surely there are products out there that work well and are gluten-free already on the shelves.
What do you use?

For facial moisturizer I use Loreal Skin Genesis, which I have no clue is gluten free or not but I've had no problem with it. And it's readily available, too, at Wal-Mart or drug stores.

"Green Beaver" is coming out with a line called Gluten Free. We are using the Mint Apple shampoo and conditioner and we love it. They have whole lines of products which are clearly marked gluten-free, not tested on animals, organic. I can buy them at my local gluten free shop, but you can order them online and they won't break the bank.

Ok I'm pretty new to this and this may sound like a dumb question but why do we need to used gluten free shampoo's and soaps? I never thought of that and was never told that.
You don't "have to," but some of us do react, especially if we have longer hair or are super sensitive. We have a well, low water pressure, and hard water, and I don't want to spend a half tank of hot water trying to get that stuff rinsed absolutely completely off of me. I was especially concerned about conditioners, which frequently have wheat and oat products in them, when they leave an oily residue over your hair, and then it gets into your towel and the rest on your hands if you tend to play with your hair. Think about how you can sometimes taste soap shampoo residue when showering. Same with moisturizers. I have gotten glutened from my spouse using hand lotion, and then bare handing ice cubes into my glass. If I can smell it, it's there- and if I kiss somebody on the top of their head, for example, that is the LAST thing I want to be kissing.
A lot of these "moisturizing" bar soaps leave an oil scum on your hands, too.
I use water with apple cider vinegar (8 parts water, 1 part vinegar) as a final rinse, or spritz it onto my hair from a spray bottle, then put a tiny dab of coconut oil or pure shea butter in my palm and massage it over my wet hair.

I love their Coconut line of products....shampoo, conditioner,body wash, lotion, hand soap!!
Most of the ShiKai products are gluten free as well. I use their shampoo and conditioner.
<Thank you for your interest in ShiKai Products. All of our products are gluten free except for our moisturizing shower gels as they contain colloidal oatmeal and our borage moisturizer with SPF 15 as the starch in it is derived from wheat. Thank you and have a good day.>
A good hair product has been hard to find....most that I try make me have a reaction but I have found that Jonathon has good hair products that are gluten free such as Dirt Paste or Silky Dirt styling cream.

I use the body bar on my daughter, who is the one who actually needs the gluten free stuff. I keep her bath products gluten free because you never know what a kid is going to do with the bath water when you have your back turned for a sec.
