Since I'm losing my hair, I probably need to buy a gluten free shampoo. Can anyone tell me what brands are safe to use?

I use Garnier. Dove and Suave will also label gluten ingredients. If you prefer organic good labelers are Shikai and Giovanni and Himalaya even says gluten free on the bottles. There are others but those are the only ones I am familiar with. I like the Himalaya but have trouble with getting it out of the bottle since the bottles are very stiff. They have redesigned the packages to make it easier to dispense but I haven't bought it since the change so don't know how much improvement there is.
I lose hair with either soy or gluten and find extra biotin to be helpful in regrowing.

oh my gosh! I've been concerned about my hair falling out too. I even cut it pretty short so that I wouldn't have to watch it fall out anymore. I never thought my shampoo could be contributing. Now I feel dumb for not thinking about this.

Do you have wavy or curly hair? I went "no 'poo" (I use an occasional surfactant-free soap like dr. Bronner's, and lots of regular conditioning, the book "curly girl" or the Internet has lots of info), and my hair felt a lot better and shed less. That was pre-gluten-free, and now that I'm gluten-free, my hair feels amazing and I'm shedding a more normal amount.

glutenfree since 6/2011. sick for 30 years.

borderline blood test, negative biopsy.

SEVERELY sensitive celiac with DH. sensitive to contact and ingestion.

asthma (was severe; improved exponentially after 6/11)

Owning a salon, the shampoo thing has been an issue for me too. I just can't seem to wash my hair without the shampoo running down my face no matter how hard I try. I know how damaging store brand shampoos are to hair ESPECIALLY if you get your hair colored or highlighted. Paul Mitchell is by no means the best salon brand but the Awapui shampoo smells great AND is gluten free. No itchy scalp or worries about accidental ingestion!

We use JR Ligget shampoo bars. Very gentle.

I do have to use something to shake it up every few weeks - remove residue / mildly strip but had to do that with Aveda, too.

Costco Kirkland brand shampoo and conditioner. Both gluten-free and surprisingly good. Also Aveda products.

Hi everybody...
I'm quite new to this, but it bothers me that everyone seems concerned with ingestion only...when talking shampoo, but if everything I've read so far talks about wheat contamination and so on...what about absorbsion?
can't it be absorbed into your skin? why isn't anyone conserned about that!? We just bought this lovely bottle of Nexxus at Cosco...My family loved it. Everyone liked the way thier hair felt...except me!I was ok at first... then my hair just went limp and raggy,dirty looking within an hour(sorta wilted). I wasn't feeling that great either...then my 12 yr old pointed out that it had (Wheat) in the ingreadiance(I hadn't thought to look..being new at this, but he did...great kid!!!)
Also in the past I have mysterous tender sopots in my scalp(like bad sun burn without the sun burn!) I'm wondering if its ben shampoo related all along (and no...I ussreally don't get shampoo in my mouth) but notice my arms and back itch alot after shampooing!
Thats what I have to say about that!
So what does anybody hear about panteane??? I know the ingreadiants have changed over the years...several times...but I just bought some and couldn't find wheat on there any where..is it under a differant name? someone mentioned on a past blog that it had gluten( I read this after googling the question this morning and this cite popped up!)
This cite has been heaven sent by the way...thats why I desided to join!!!
THANKYOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR EXPERIANCES AND ADVICE!!!

(I'm speaking purely for celiac here - not for anyone who has any other types of issues with gluten)

For celiac the damage comes when gluten enters the small intestine.

You picking up a handful of wheat gluten isn't going to hurt you unless you ingest it.

I doubt a shampoo makes your hair directly fall out. I'd say it's either a different issue or the malabsorption of nutrients is what is causing the hair loss. I had big issues with it before diagnosis and it's just now getting better.

I think it was the Australian research with vaccines that does it by injecting gluten, yes?

Once again - I'm not referring to anything regarding a wheat allergy or some other type of gluten sensitivity. I haven't done my homework on what reactions can or may be caused by direct contact, etc.

Well, my dog's shampoo had wheat germ oil in it and it made my hands hurt like I'd been pruning Acacia trees (made them swell, sore, achey muscles).

My facial moisturizers have "gluten sensitive" wheat in them, meaning gluten has been separated and removed and I dont have an obvious problem with it but I will not buy more.

Some people have issues with gluten cosmetics, body care. Others don't. I wouldn't use gluten toothpaste...in a bit pickier since I have DH.
