Gluten-Free Shampoo/Hair Products

So as we know, for those who color their hair, using salon products is most likely the best way to go. Does anyone know of a good shampoo/conditioner that is gluten-free, and great for color treated hair? I used to use Pureology, which I loved, but it makes me break out and I found out that there is wheat-protein in some of their products. My skin is SO sensitive to this and I break out for weeks when I use anything that has wheat/oats/etc. in their hair products.

Any suggestions? :D

I use Garnier Fructis shampoo and conditioner. They even have one for color treated hair. I also use their styling products, hairspray and hair color. When I spoke to their rep on the phone, she said ALL their shampoos and conditioners and gluten-free, but you should call about each individual styling product. Since everything I asked about WAS gluten-free I wondered if they have any products with gluten. She said she didn't think so, but couldn't make a blanket statement like that. Hope this helps.

Funny you say that, my sister bought a bottle of it and I used it last night and noticed how soft my hair felt! Thanks!!

I have heard the professional line ALTERNA is safe (though I haven't looked into this...)

I too am on a mission for a professional grade shampoo/conditioner. If I find one, I will let you know--please do the same!! :)

I was also using the Pureology line and started to break out at my hair line....perhaps they changed something.

I am looking for new skincare too--and suggestions??

Thanks

Hey Amy,

Yea, I would stay away from Pureology. Some of their items say that they are vegan, but they still make me break out. I think that they are just heavy products and clog pores easily.

I've been using the Garnier for the past few days and have been almost waiting for something to happen but nothing yet! And it makes my hair soft. I just wonder how good it is at preserving hair color.

As far as skin care goes, there are a few things that I can recommed. Anything Neutrogena seems to do the trick; they are all hypoallergenic and seem to be faily mild, I have never had a problem with them. However, I do see a dermatologist and my cleanser is a prescription. I do use a topical serum before my daily moisturizer (Neutrogena spf 15 daily facial moisturizer) and it's from Skin Ceuticals. This is the brand that my dermatologist carries in her anti-aging spa as well, check them out online. I have never had a problem with them. Also, for spot treatment I use this great stuff from Dermalogica, I can't remember the name, but if you search around on their website it's a tinted serum that has sulfer in it I believe and it dries up pimples within a day or two, it's great and there is nothing gluten about it!

I wrote to Korres and Johnathan product-- I got replies from h20+ (no!) and RUSK, as well as L'occitane-- see post. Caudalie shampoo and conditioner is gluten-free. I hope to hear back from more companies soon and I will post the results.

I still swear by my Pantene. I get remarks about how pretty my hair is all the time. How thick and shiny it is, how good it smells! I must be doing something right. I have used Garnier too, but much prefer Pantene. I was told Dove is just as good, but I really do not agree. Aussie products are good too, their 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner is great.

Hi,

I called Victoria Principal and was told all products gluten-free. I've used it for over two yrs and love it! Also, called Kenra and they said the clear styling paste is gluten-free. I use on wet hair, blow dry, then style w/ small amt. No need for hair spray. Hair has definition, volume and shine not to mention still touchable!

If you're looking for something high end, Origins says their shampoos and conditioners are all gluten free too. Haven't try them, but if they're anything like their skincare line (also mostly gluten-free) they would be awesome. :rolleyes:

Margaret, how did you find out about origins? I sent them three emails asking about this and I got no information.

I am so frustrated! I wrote to over 40 companies and only heard back from about half! For hair I also wrote to:

Johnathan Product

Korres natural products

Phytologie

Does anybody know anything about these brands?

I forgot to say that I also wrote to Bliss. Nothing. <_<

Origins sent me an email requesting specific products names. I sent a list to them twice, but I kept getting the same email back. I just give up on that one. Too bad... they also had a big scary bold caps paragraph about how any information in the email was not to be disseminated in any form.

:angry:

I know this is a very old post, but today (April 6, 2012) I called Pureology before I bought their DryShine Hair Styler (Shine & Control).

They said it was gluten free.

The ingredients are below. As always, the key is that tocopheryl acetate. It can be derived from wheat, but it may also be derived from something else.

Water (Purified), PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, C12 15 Alkyl Benzoate, Oleth 20, Oleth 10, Sorbitol, Glycerin, Polyurethane 14, AMP Acrylates/Ally Methacrylate Copolymer, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax (Carnauba), VP/VA Copolymer, PPG 5 Ceteth 20, Kaolin, Cyclomethicone, Panthenol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Extract (Heliogenol), Polyamide 2, Cinnamidopropyl Trimonium Chloride, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Ascorbic Acid Superoxide Dismutase, Melanin (Antioxidants), Amodimethicone, C11 15 Pareth 7, Laureth 9, Trideceth 12, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, PEG 7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Aromatherapy Fragrance

As I have said many times before, the Canadian Celiac Association considers all tocopherols to be safe in food for people with celiac disease. If is is safe to eat, it is safe to put in my hair. Even if the original source was wheat, there is no detectable gluten in the resulting ingredient.

The tocopherol then becomes a minor ingredient (the 18th in order by mass, in this example) in something else.

This product is gluten-free.

tocopherol

 

 

i was just wondering about this very subject!  what ARE the specific ingredients (in all beauty products)?  reading the whole loooong list of ingredients just blows my mind...can't even pronounce them! do we have to be scientists??

 

what i'm asking is if there are 1, or  2, or 3, or more SPECIFIC ingredients we should look for on all products labels? the list looks extensive, so as mentioned in the post, it's the TOCOPHEROL that MAY be a problem...even that is questionable though.

 

i hope my question is clear....

Did you read psawyer's repsonse?

 

I just look for obvious things like - wheat germ oil.  Even then, with the exception of lip products, I'm not eating them or getting a significant amount in my mouth.
