Another 'does This Happen To You' ?

Recommended Posts

I am knocking on the door of 50. Other than the Celiac disease and other auto-immune related disorders, I am very active, healthy and fit. I have never in my life had problems with oily hair or skin. Not dry, just normal (if that word can be applied to me, this would probably be the only place! :D )

I have been gluten-free since November and have enjoyed a relatively good past month of not too many stomach related issues. Starting to get the hang of this lifestyle and starting to enjoy life again.

However, I have noticed a little oddity. Where I once used a normal amount of moisturizer for my skin and conditioner for my hair, I have had to cut Wayyyyy back on both because now I am tending towards the oily side. No breakouts or anything. Just shiny more often than not and the hair is positively limp if I use much conditioner at all. I have switched to conditioning only a couple of times a week, which does help. I haven't changed brands so I don't think that could be an issue.

My question: Has this happened with anyone else? Is it related to nutritional absorption because my gut is healing? I don't eat oily or fried foods. (Can any Celiac actually do that and get away with it without serious stomach issues to follow?) Or could it just be that good old standard for everything else that goes to hell in a hand basket...AGE?

Just curious.

I am a hairdresser. And your hair and nails are the last place to get nutrients. So if you have a malnuricment disease your hair and nails will suffer. but if your hair was dry and damaged it could mean you live in a dry area, your hairs not getting enough nutrients or you have dameged it by coloring or highlighting it to much.

Oily hair is not that bad, it means you are getting nutrients that you need and healthy hair tends to be oily. Aquauge has a great line of products that are gluten free. The equalizing shampoo should help with that Hopefully that helped

And i got diagnosed in September and my hair sucks right now. Its not healthy

Thank you! That does help. Guess I must being doing something right with my nutrition then. Can you purchase those products at a beauty supply store or are they something you have to order from a specialty store?

Thank you for your help.

The sell them at exclusive salons you may have to call around to find it, but the color care shampoo, healing condition, equalizing, the working spray, straightning gel, volumizing spray. When i contacted them they got me in touch with there scientist who also told me anything with sd alcohol could contain wheat. Most arosol hairspray is bad. But there beyond thermal and shine spray contains gluten but theres no cross contamination
