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

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
