I only use shampoos and conditioners from Desert Essence Organics and EO (Essential Oil). Both are made with organic essential oils, and there is NO gluten to worry about. I get Dermatitis Herpetiformis on my face, so it's essential that my shampoos be absolutely gluten free.

I am waiting for a blood test to tell me if I have Celiac Disease. But I am pretty sure what the result is going to be. I already have two other auto immune disorders. I have had to use Dove products for body wash for years. I have been having problems with my hair falling out and my head hurting and I had no idea it could be caused by the products I was using on my hair not being gluten free. Are there any other brands I can use for hair stuff and how do you tell?

The Dove products are okay (for gluten). The celiac itself can cause you to be losing hair, and the resulting non- absorbing of nutrients because of damage to the lining of the gut can play havoc with skin and hair quality. Thyroid problems can also cause hair loss. Going gluten free can result in your hair coming back in thicker (mine did).

You can get a rash from ingredients other than gluten (or cross contaminated oats used in some brands), it is not always the gluten. I have to be really careful because I have super sensitive skin, and a sensitive pet with allergies who can react to licking my hand if I use the wrong lotion. This is why I tend to not use commercial hair conditioners, which can leave a residue. Instead I use water and pure apple cider vinegar for a detangling rinse, followed by a bit of pure coconut oil or shea butter.

People tell by reading the labels for the obvious, checking websites for updated information, (doing a search on "gluten free name of product") and contacting the manufacturer and then posting results .... some companies are good about calling out allergens on the labels.

I use Live Clean products including shampoo, conditioner, handsoap and moisturizers. Their website claims that all of their products are gluten free, despite nothing on the outward label. I have only seen them on the market where I live, Eastern Canada, for a couple of years. I was surprised to see that WalMart carried a whole slew of their products, but I originally bought their pump handsoap because it wasn't antimicrobial and was vegan. I found it at Sobeys.

I just bought Green Beaver shampoo and conditioner to try out (the cranberry smells so nice, which is a plus since I dislike or get nauseated by so many other smells) as it is labelled gluten free as well. This brand I could only find at my local organic store however. But it's canadian and also appears to create a bunch of other products including gluten free toothpaste.

I don't usually think of myself as having sensitive skin, but the most recent lip balm that I bought (gluten free of course) made the area around my lips break out, and the very natural deodorant I just bought to try out (smells nice) make my armpits itchy. The only ingredient I can fathom that I react to in that deodorant is the shea butter.

I've had dandruff issues since I was about 10, and I still have dandruff although I was hoping being gluten free and using gluten free shampoos would have resolved that. It's the really itchy kind that makes scabs that sorta stick to the scalp and feels much worse if my scalp is oily. It hasn't improved in 6 months. I have to occasionally use Nizoral (the only antidandruff shampoo to have ever had any noticeable effect to me) to keep it at bay. I haven't checked the gluten status of Nizoral.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
