Favorite Gluten Free Haircare Products?
0

23 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone! I haven't had much time to really look into various gluten free haircare products, so I was curious to know what everyone uses or recommends? I've resorted to some of the cheaper products that don't really work well on my hair. Right now I'm using L'Oreal's EverStrong shampoo and conditioner. I also use Garnier Fructis mousse and sometimes Pantene's detangler spray (which I'm not 100% sure is gluten free). Any suggestions would be appreciated! I'm willing to buy expensive brands as long as they work! :rolleyes:

I use Garnier Fructis only. They are gluten free, easy to find, work well and inexpensive. :)

I use Dessert Essence Organics shampoos as well as EO shampoos from time to time. EO is made with essential oils and can be found at places like Whole Foods.

I use Bubble & Bee Organic shampoo (You can find her website by typing in the name.) I got the set of two shampoos, a rinsing bottle, and a free lotion stick for $30. I have very long, thick, and easy to tangle hair and her products work wonders. My hair is soft, shiny, and easy to comb through. Bubble & Bee is 100% natural, organic, and gluten free. I find mixing her shampoo with baking soda works best if you have hard water (but I use it in soft and hard water just because.) The lemon scent is my favorite so far but the peppermint is to die for for the scent alone!

You can pick up her products if you live in Utah but otherwise you have to order them online but everything ships really fast, I usually get my stuff in two days.

I was disappointed at Aveda. There is hydrolyzed wheat protein in a lot of Aveda hair care products. They do have allergen information in the store to help find the wheat-free ones.

I like Aubrey Organics Chamomile shampoo. I've been using Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner most days, and Enjoy Reconstructing Conditioner once a week. Giovanni and Aubrey Organics are nice because they're paraben and SLS free.

I also like Garnier Fructis Mousse and would like to try their shampoo and conditioner (using Suave now).

Also in the Garnier line is their Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Moisturizer, which I like a lot better than what I used before. They also run a lot of coupons and their products are easy to find, which is important to me. I'll definitely be buying more of their products after having tried just these two.

Sylvia, you will love the shampoo and conditioner. It smells great. Walmart sells huge bottles and most of the time the Sunday paper has a coupon.

Paul Mitchell will send you a list of what products of theirs are gluten free. Their hair color is gluten free too! Joico has a list of gluten free products and you can search under KMS's website and it will give you a list. Dove is great about listing wheat/gluten products too.

Burt's Bees Dandruff shampoo (they don't make it anymore, but I only wash my hair about 2 times a week, so my stuff lasts and lasts); 365 fragrance-less shampoo from Whole Foods; Head and Shoulders; Nizoral (not 100% sure that is gluten-free); Dessert Essence like someone else said; Suave naturals conditioner (lavender).

From the hair salon - Pureology antifade complex rootlift. I called the number on the cannister and they said it was gluten-free.

I use Dove Products and they seem to work well for me. I believe most off them if not all are gluten free. They clearly label any allergens on their products.

Did you experience any issues with the Aveda products? I have been using them for years, and I love them. I was recently diagnosed with celiac and am trying to figure out if I need to find new hair product or not - I keep seeing conflicting information regarding the presence of gluten in hydrolyzed wheat protein...

I also like the Garnier shampoos and conditioners. Right now I am using Wen. The Pomegranate and Six-Thirteen are gluten-free (soy based), as are the seasonal ones. At this time, all other varieties are wheat based and unfortunately out for us.

I have dry, naturally curly, color treated hair and this is the most moisturizing shampoo (they call it cleansing conditioner) I have ever used. Expensive but worth it, in my opinion.

I've been happy with Neuma. I buy it in a salon and it's salon pricey, but works very well, and is an all vegan and gluten free line. They also list all product ingredients on their website.

The L'Oreal Everstrong line is gluten free per an email I received from their customer service a few months ago.

I loved my Aveda 'be curly' product line, but they all have hydrolized wheat protein. I have since moved on to Onesta (for shampoo/conditioner) and Beautiful Curl for styling products (leave-in conditioner and curl activating cream). I don't like they as much as Aveda, but they seem to work reasonable well, and are much less expensive. I get the Onesta on-line, and the Beautiful Curls at whole foods. Beautiful curls also has a shampoo, but I have not tried it yet...

Not all of the Aubrey line of products are gluten free so make sure to read the label. Same with Giovanni (most of there's is but not all).

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it. 
    • Gardasil
      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
