Hidden Gluten/wheat In Hair Dye Powder

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Last week I did my usual root touch up with a water soluble hair dye; but in the mixing process I accidentally spilled it and I accidentally inhaled the powder. Later that day I noticed the familiar gluten contamination symptoms. Feeling sick, stomach cramps, extra trips to the bathroom. I am wondering whether there was any wheat derivatives in the hair dye. (I am still suffering).

In the past I have had gluten contamination through eye drops and eye ointment that has drained into my stomach, so I am presuming this has happened through the hair dye. Has anyone else had these kind of problems?

Usually, hair products are pretty proud to proclaim that they have wheat germ oil in them.  Maybe you could email the manufacturer and see?

I didn't realise they all had wheat germ oil in them. I will email the company though. Thanks.
