OK, I just read the label on my shampoo and it has at least 2 wheat ingredients in it...go figure. It's Redken All Soft brand and it has always worked really well for my hair :(

Will this really make me sick? It seems so crazy that you could get sick from absorbing gluten through your scalp in the shower!

The reason shampoo might make you sick is that you may get some into your mouth. Either directly, by running into your mouth when rinsing, or indirectly, when you touch your hair and then eat without washing your hands.

The same goes for soap, lotion, lipstick and lipgloss (you WILL eat some, it is inevitable) and other personal care items.

Yeah, I got sick from my shampoo (got it in my mouth while showering) once before I realized I needed to get a gluten-free one.

I use these products now. Have been for over a year and I LOVE this stuff.

Yes, I've heard of people reacting to shampoo.

Myself, I didn't realize for some months that I was using hair gel with wheat protein. That sure seems to be common. Every time I go into the salon, I have to remind my stylist that she can't use what she usually uses. Things have improved since I switched to a different product.

Not to mention that your skin is your largest organ. If people can get sick from touching chemicals, I would think you could also absord shampoo. Plus, it would be on your hair, and we always touch our hair and then our food.

Just A note to let all knowI called and found out that Head and Shoulders shampoo is gluten free.

I prefer to use a more natural shampoo called--- Desert Essence Organics----. I love their shampoo and conditioners. Go to their site and they will let you know where to buy their product.

I thought I was getting better until a few months ago. I'm gluten sensitive that seems to be DH only.

I use a few Redken products, shampoo, conditioner, sculting lotion and pomade. Just figured out they all have gluten in them and have been giving my hands horrible rashes.

No Redken for me now.

I'm currently using Head & Shoulders plain shampoo without conditioner and Ivory soap.

I read here that someone else found H&S to be gluten free, and with Ivory saying they're 99 & 44/100 pure, it was a safe guess that seems to be working.

There are a couple other threads that talk about the whole shampoo craze, I too was having problems with my shampoo, Dove was suggested, (read the ingredients) im not sure if they are all gluten free, and for the life of me i cannot remember which one i have, but after one wash, my hair felt amazing, it is not falling out as much, and everyone has noticed a change, and "how healthy my hair looks" and i have only been using it for 3 days... ;)

I wouldn't worry about it ---- (as long as you're not eating your shampoo) :D

The problem is you can't really help eating SOME shampoo.

Even if you don't get some on your lips in the shower (which is pretty hard to achieve) its all over your skin so next time you put your finger in your mouth etc.

Just to make you feel better.... I was using some shampoo and getting sicker and sicker...

Forget the labels ... when I did actually read the bottle it was right on the front "Enriched with Pure wheat protein" ... talk about not reading the Large print

edit oops I don't mean forget reading the labels... I meant Forget me being that smart to read small print as it as actually writte on the front in big letters!
