Professional Hair Color

Recommended Posts

hello all,

I just moved to a new state & really need to get my hair colored. The salon I was referred to says they use the following for color

Wella Colortouch

Wella Koleston Perfect

Matrix Prisims

I'm trying to get to the companies now but if anyone has any info I would really appreciate!!

They're ok with me bringing in my own shampoo/conditioner & styling product....so that's a plus!

I called Wella recently and was told that their products are gluten free. However, they can't guarantee there is no cc because they are bottled at a place that bottles other products that may contain gluten.

I have noticed 2 out of maybe 12 times that my head is itchy for a few days after having my hair colored. I'm guessing there was some cc in those batches.

Greetings,

I color my own hair. My hair grows so fast that I would have to be in the salon biweekly. I just contacted Garnier and their hair color is gluten-free. Good luck

After going to a new salon and taking a chance on an unknown brand, my hair started falling out in clumps. I just had my color redone and went back to Wella (which has always worked great for me in the past), and my hair is finally happy again...HOORAY!!!

Greetings,

Look up the morrocco method on the net. They specialize in gluten-free and organic hair care products and henna dye.

I am not sure if there are any salons in your area

Good luck.

Thanks all! After I got the following response from Wella, I got nervous so I found a salon that was more able to accomadte me And YAY! Grey hairs are gone!

Thank you for contacting P & G Professional Care Exclusive Line. Below is the statement regarding Gluten.

Gluten statement

Thank you for contacting us about Gluten in Wella Color Touch and Koleston Perfect.

We do not intentionally add Gluten to our cosmetic products.

Cosmetic products can feature a variety of ingredients extracted from grains. As Gluten too is a grain derived ingredient, it cannot be excluded that trace amounts of Gluten may come along with common raw material supplies.

It is generally believed that Gluten needs to be ingested to produce sensitivity and therefore use of hair and skin products is not likely to trigger a reaction. However, the degree of sensitivity varies from person to person; we highly recommend that you consult with your physician before using any products.

We also refer you to online websites such as celiac.com or celiac.org for further information. One of the questions asked on the website celiac.com is "Can products which contain gluten but only touch the skin affect celiacs?" and the response is "Very few celiacs are likely to have any reaction to topical gluten contact. In order for a gut reaction to occur, it is likely that direct contact with the gut lumen is required. Many people with celiac disease have everyday contact with gluten (for instance, bakers with celiac disease who have contact everyday with wheat flour), and do not have any reaction to it. However, there are, on rare occasion, people who have had an anaphylactoid response to gluten, and these people should avoid gluten in all forms. Also, topical gluten breathed into the upper airways may cause symptoms of allergic rhinitis in rare instances. If there is a simple alternative to a shampoo, cosmetic, etc., you may want to use the non gluten containing product."

Kind Regards,

I stopped bolding afer I got irritated! For a company to be so misleading when replying to someone who has intestinal, topical and neurological rections, that just made me want to run away!
