In Topic: Gluten Free Mousse For Hair

I am sorry everyone, but I need an answer to my question and so I am bumping this back up.

We have over 29,000 members. Someone must be using a gluten free mousse. I don't need a gluten free jell, but a mousse. I have emailed Giovanni, like a member mentioned and I have not heard back. I called Ultra and they don't know. I have called Avon and no answer there.

I am hoping someone is using something that is gluten free that can be bought at Walgreen's or can be ordered online. Maybe someone else knows the name of a gluten free hairspray that is good.

I would change my hair style, but that is no longer an option. My hair is super fine and I have lost over half of my hair, because of the diagnosis of celiac being so delayed for years. If I wear my gray hair short and spiky, then I can hide how little of my hair is left.

So, I really hope someone knows of a mousse and maybe hairspray.

Thanks a bunch.

Since I have been gluten free, I am much calmer, so I would handle it a little differently.

I would put a nice smile (not a laughing one) on my face, shaking my head at the same time, Then say "sometimes Tim (or whatever his name is), you say the darnest things. But, I love you anyway". Then walk away and still with a nice smile on your face. He will give up and probably be proud of the maturity you have shown, in handling a very dificult time.

Good Luck.

Until someone responds with the answer, you might want to do what I do, when I am eating at friends' home and they are grilling. They always put mine on foil before placing on the grill and use separate tongs for turning.

I do know that in our last home that we had a built-in grill and I did get sick when my husband grilled on it. But, that could also be because we did not use it often and so some gluten was probably still sticking to it. I really don't know. But, when we built this townhome, we bought a new grill and no one is allowed to put anything with gluten on it. They don't get to toast the hamburger buns LOL. If they are that despirate for toasted hamb. buns, they can put them in my husbands toaster. They also know that the buns stay in the kitchen and don't come to the table as I have been cross contaminated by people being careless about passing the buns around. They have to make their sandwiches on the counter and then bring the plate to the table.

Boy, was I a rude hostess - hee, hee.

In Topic: What Happenes When You Are "glutened"?

When I first was diagnosed (5 years ago), I would get sick within 10 minutes of eating gluten. Which made it easy to figure out where I slipped up as I was just learning. But, after I was gluten free for a long time, the symptoms took longer to show. Like sometimes an hour. Now if I get accidentaly gluten, I get severe (and I mean severe) heartburn. Then the day after, the neurological problems kick in. I stagger around like I am drunk, hit the walls, because I can't judge the distance and wind up with a black and blue body. I have even fractured my arm during one of these episodes. I have had them last from a week to 3 months. So, for me, the recovery time depends on how much gluten I have accidently ingested. The neuro problem that lasted 3 months, was from one pill that was suppose to be gluten free.

I am so sorry that you got glutened Patty. May you feel a lot better real soon.
