Should I Get New Shampoo And Conditioner?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

Im in my second week of being gluten free and have already had some set-backs! :-(

I noticed in the shower this morning that both my shampoo and conditioner contain a whole bunch of different 'wheat' ingredients. One ingredient is even listed as 'Wheat Protein'.

Should I be buying new shampoo and conditioner?

I went and checked all mother other cosmetics and I think they're ok....Im not sure about my body lotion though, it has a lot of 'flower' ingredients like: Sunflower extract and Shea seed etc.

What do you think?

Will my toothpaste be ok?

Also, on a different note...what are the chances of getting contaminated from kissing my boyfriend?

eg: Would I be be more likely to get contaminated if I kissed him while he was drinking a beer?

Im new to the diet and would appreciate any advice.

Thanks

If you are just starting the diet, I would certainly recommend that you have gluten free shampoo and conditioner. It just crosses off one type of contaimination. Dove products are gluten free. Toothpaste must be gluten free, most are but always check.

And, the beer and boyfriends can be another way to get glutened. You might want to hold off until he has a change to brush his teeth before a good smooch. :rolleyes:
