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.

That's great to hear...I'll be watching for coupons so I can try them.

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...
