Need brand name suggestions for shampoo, conditioner (not shampoo w/conditioner), spray on conditioner (for when hair is drying and needs to be detangled) ....thanks.

Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

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!

I've been using Nature's Gate Herbal Hair Shampoo. I've used Pantene also and had no problems. I also have a frangrance free hypo-allergenic shampoo by AURA. AURA also has a leave-in conditioner that is gluten-free and an alcohol-free (and gluten-free) styling gel.

I've also heard the Fructis is gluten-free. I have some in the linen closet, but haven't tried it yet!


edit to add: I believe Toms of Maine Natural Normalizing Shampoo and Original Natural shampoo are gluten-free. Also, Denorex: Advanced Formula, Extra Strength Medicated, and Extra Strength Medicated w/Conditioner, Medicated Shampoo and Conditioner (seperate), and Medicated Mountain Fresh Scent Shampoo.

I know of Neutrogena that claims to be gluten-free, but they say there is a possibility of contamination. I've tried them, and they do indeed bother me, so I personally won't recommend them.

It is up to you what you put on your skin.

Just a lot of people have allergic reactions to it on their skin or just want to be 100% gluten-free.

I know I get rashes and such from products with gluten. Plus, sometimes I get shampoo in my mouth on accident while washing my hair.
