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.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
