I have the same question, right now I am using sunsilk extra body shampoo and conditioner, I am still losing hair, but not nearly as much as I was when I was using Tresseme...

I use ShiKai's shampoo and conditioner, and am quite happy with it. Definitely need the conditioner in the winter, though. :)

I also like ShiKai very much. I've used the Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner.

Dove is good, and will list any gluten on the label. I'm currently using Desert Essence.

Garnier has many gluten-free products--their Long and Strong Shampoo and Conditioner are gluten-free.

I am using the Dove pro-age products (for people over 50) and love them.

My youngest daughter uses Dove as well, and did by choice before knowing about being gluten intolerant, because their shampoos, conditioners and gels are great. The same goes for the soap.

I just started using Burt's Bees shampoo and conditioner (the grapefruit scented one). I really like it.

Some scents have wheat protein, so check the label.

I use Ecover dish soap for shampoo, and Nature's gate conditioner. I'm cheap. But it works really good! My hair is so manageable now. And shiny. But I have lots of fine, light, long, fluffy hair. Might not work for different types of hair.

I think it does too, But thats why I was asking what other people used, I am def. not going to go out and buy anymore shampoos and conditioners till i know for sure it has no gluten, and since my hair isnt falling out too bad, i figure ill use it till i get a brand, And thanks to all of you on here, I can finally go out and get some gluten-free shampoos!!!!!

I am new to the whole label reading thing, and sometimes Ill see something, and think its okay, but then find out its not.....

Thanks!!!!

Read the label because I know I ended up giving mine away after checking the label. I know the Neutrogena clean shampoo is gluten-free but wanted a change. I did go and buy the Garnier Long and Strong and am having a good hair day today :D (thanks jerseyangel) L.A.

I use Pantene. Never had a problem with it. I can't do most of the "natural" or "organic" hair care products on the market because everyone seems to want to put sunflower oil in them. Whatever. If it's isn't one thing it's another.

I dont remember which thread it was on, but I want to thank the person who told me about everyday minerals, I got my free samples in yesterday, and am wearing them today, which is a great pick me up, since I have been down the past 2 days. I love how light weight the makeup is, it looks flawless! Thank You!!

Isn't that stuff great? I like it too. I don't usually wear makeup, but I need good stuff for the rare occasion when I do, so I got some of their stuff and I love it. I wish they made mascara. But if you're feeling the pocketbook pinch for shampoos, the Ecover dish soap idea might work for you, because its so much cheaper than shampoo. It's expensive for dish soap, but awful cheap for shampoo. And if you hate it for your hair, at least you can use it for something else instead of having to give it away. It works for shampoo because it's a lot more liquidy than normal dish soap, it pours like water instead of goo. It's very gentle. Doesn't last as long as normal dish soap for washing dishes though, it dissolves fatser and you have to use more. It also smells a lot gentler, I'm so tired of shampoo that makes me sneeze.

hi,

I was just diagnosed in december.... at the time my scalp was a mess (now I know why). I just switched to Dove and my hair and scalp are really healing.

Good luck with your search!

I also had noticable hair loss before gluten-free and after a few months began using lotions and shampoos that do not have wheat. It made a dramatic difference with my skin, scalp and hair problems.

I recommend Pureology zerosulfate purifyshampoo (pale green bottle) expensive but you use a very small amount so it lasts. It has tea tree oil in it also. Check carefully because not all of the pureolgy products are wheat free.

Neutrogena Clean Replenishing shampoo and conditioner are also great.

I just had my kid retested for celiac disease and we are waiting for the results.  Her doctor does not hesitate to test since I have a firm diagnosis.  I can also say that my PCP and GI  never hesitate to check for other AI issues either.  They know that you can develop more than one autoimmune disorder.  Better to catch it early before damage!   If you get an endoscopy, be sure to do a gluten challenge 2 to 4 weeks prior or your result will be negative!
