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 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.
