Gluten Free Curl Enhancer?

I'm looking for a gluten free curl enhancer for my hair. Does anyone know of a product like this? Thanks!

You could make your own. I found this recipe on one of the Delphi forums. Boil/simmer about one tablespoon of whole flax seeds in about 1/2 cup of water for about three minutes, strain the mixture. Combine equal parts of flax seed gel with aloe vera gel, store in the refrigerator. Use in place of regular hair gel. I bought the dark flax seeds. I store my gel in a Sally's bottle made for applying hair dye. This recipe does not work with ground flax seeds. You can change the proportions of the flax and aloe vera gel to change the holding power. I think more flax gel gives more hold. The flax gel also helps with shine.

Seriously ? Wow! That is cool :D

Well, not as cool at Kathy's ! but the Frizz Ease mousse has worked well for me, and now I'm using Pureology Real Curl (have to get in a salon). A lotiony styler that smells amazing! I wasn't sure how it would work at first, since I have fine hair--but it promotes great curls and doesn't weigh down my hair at all. http://www.pureology.com/

When I wear my hair curly, I like Dove Anti Frizz Creme. The curls stay soft, not "crunchy" :)

If this was not a gluten free forum, I would've suggested eating your crusts. That's what my dad would say when I left my crusts behind. Apparently eating crusts gives you curly hair!

Thanks for the info...unfortunatley I had contacted PureOlogy a few months ago and was told that none of their products are gluten-free. I had this confirmed again today. I'm checking to make sure though because they always say their products contain wheat, oat, and soy protein. So I want to find out if that means they ALL contain all three proteins OR if some may just contain soy, which would be safe...I'm waiting to hear back again. I'll post when I get the answer!!! Thanks again!

Yeah, let me know what they say, b/c there aren't any gluten ingredients in the product I use. Maybe its their cya. I know some definitely have wheat etc...don't use any of those.

All of Giovanni hair products are gluten-free (even the golden wheat shampoo). I use their mousse off and on and it works pretty well with my curls.

Dear Lima,

Thank you for your quick response. Do all of the products contain wheat, oat, AND soy proteins? Or are there some products with only wheat, only oat, or only soy? I ask because if there are products that contain soy proteins, but not wheat, barley, rye, or oats, those would be "safe" to use. Thank you again for your time.

My daughter has a medical condition which requires that she only come into contact with gluten-free products. I need to know if your product Real Curl contains any gluten from wheat, barley, rye, oats, or any ingredients derived from these grains. Thank you.

I really like fructis curl cream. I called the company to confirm that it is indeed gluten free. There are a couple more fructis products for curly hair that I want to try so I'm going to call about them, and I'll let you know :)

I use frizz-ease the pump curl enhancer and that is gluten-free. Check the labels but they have a lot of gluten-free products. I also use the regular frizz ease serum for frizz control.

I contacted Garnier and their hair care products are gluten free... I've been using the curl conditioning creme and curl gel with no problems...

I use the Fructis spray gel and I can highly recommend it -- it does dry crunchy, but then you just have to gently scrunch it (maybe with a little pomade in your fingers or not) and it softens and spreads into really beautiful curls with great hold.

I hate to say this but eating ones crusts does not curl your hair. In my gluten eating days I always ate crusts and had poker straight hair. Now, I have curly hair, the only good thing I got from Hypothyroidism.
