Thanks!

I don't check my hair color. It's a personal choice and goes along with the TP, lotions, shampoo ect.

I have been gluten-free since April and my blood work was clear at 6 months and haven't had any flare ups either. So I don't think it(hair color ect) affects me.

That said I do not have DH....I think that people with that tend to be more sensitive to topicals.

I get my hair professionally colored, and my hair dresser uses Paul Mitchell hair color. I think they're all gluten-free (I don't know how many types they make...), but I would double-check (everything she's ever used on me is gluten-free). She called the hotline for me and asked about which of their products were gluten-free, and she said their customer service was extremely helpful. I also use some of their hair products that are gluten-free (there is a list somewhere on this forum of those).

Good luck! I hope your hair dresser carries Paul Mitchell!

I have my hair professionally colored with Wella products. I called and they are gluten free but they can't guarantee they are free from cc because they don't know what was bottled right before their products.

I use Herbatint and love it. It is an herbal tint and comes in both permanent and temporary forms (note: I have not checked the temporary forms for gluten statis). The thing I like most about them is you can mix just what you need and safe the rest for later use. I found the tint at Wegmans and also at my local health food store. The health food store doesn't carry it regularly but they order it when I need it so even if you don't see it in yours ask and they may be able to get it for you.

One last caution, the tint has a sample of their conditioner called Royal Creme that sample is NOT gluten free, I just toss it into my 'donation bag' for my local thrift store.

Sorry jmengert--every Paul Mitchell product I touched at the hair dresser a few weeks ago, contained gluten, it was listed clearly on the product, such as: wheat germ! Paul Mitchell is not safe for celiac's.

I use Garnier Nutrisse and have for several years. I have used L'Oreal and Herbal Essense, but prefer Garnier Nutrisse, but then I stick to the same color all the time, I just like to keep the gray covered.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Oh, there are a lot of Paul Mitchell products with gluten, but they also have many without, and the gluten is always clearly listed. I've been using them for a year without problems, and I am super sensitive, so the ones I'm using are fine.

Not all Paul Mitchell products have gluten.

Awaphui shampoo and contioner and styling products don't have gluten.

Shampoo One does contian wheat germ oil.

I use both but there are some P.M. products that don't contain gluten for those who still want to use it!

Ok, I stand corrected about some Paul Mitchell Products, all the ones I checked out had gluten in them. I'm glad your haircolor is gluten free.
