Looking For Store-Bought gluten-free Shampoo And Conditioner
0

10 posts in this topic

I'm having a hard time finding gluten-free body care products like: shampoo, conditioner, facial moisturizer, lotion, etc...

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?

I use Suave shampoo and conditioner. I also love Soft Soap in my shower and have at all my sinks, too (I buy the big size to refill smaller pump bottles). All are inexpensive and available everywhere. I also bought CeraVe Moisturizing Cream at Wal-Mart, which someone here posted is gluten free. I ditched my Bath & Body Works products. sad.gif

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.

I use EO products, which are made from essential oils (hence, the name). The line is gluten free, and I've been very pleased with it. I buy their shampoo, conditioner, and hand soap. If you go to their Website, you can find out where their products are sold.

Desert Essence Organix also carries a line of gluten-free shampoo and conditioners--it says it right on their products.

Most of the time I use Garneir Nutritioneste. I use their shampoo and conditioner and also their skin care line. They will clearly label gluten ingredients. Until I developed a soy allergy I used the organic Giovanni line. Their smooth as silk conditioner is great but the soy allergy makes me itch to much to use it anymore. Suave and Dove will also clearly label gluten ingredients. There is also a new line at my local health food store called Himilaya (I think I spelled that right). The labels say gluten free on them and they make a nice smelling conditioner and shampoo. Unfortunately the bottles for the conditioner are a thick plastic that I had to practically jump on to get the conditioner out so I won't be buying it again but if you have strong hands you may want to check it out.

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.

Hi there,

"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.

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.

Dessert Essence Organics products are all vegan and gluten free! www.desertessence.com/organics

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 Fructis line too. It comes in big bright green bottles and smells great. Dove is safe too. I use Johnson's coco butter and shea baby lotion on my face. Dove soap and softsoap for hand washing.

I use either a whole body bar from Sun Leaf Naturals, though they may be a local only company or a Desert Essence shampoo. I find the natural products work much better on my hair. Both are gluten free.

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.blink.gif

    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.
