Gluten Free And Eczema Shampoos

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a shampoo that I can use that won't irritate the eczema on my scalp that is also gluten free. I have heard that I can use Dove bar soap as a cleanser for my hair. Are the Dove shampoos fragrance free as well? Are they gluten free? What about the Aquaphor body Wash? Is it gluten free? Any other shampoos anyone know of that are gluten free and good for eczema?

You may want to try a sulfate-free shampoo to see if it helps. I use Mastey Traite cream shampoo, which is sulfate free, and has no wheat or gluten ingredients that I can see on the label (I have not called to confirm with the company about it's official gluten-free status). It has been very gentle on my scalp and hair, and doesn't aggravate my skin like some other shampoos do (Dove is not good for me.) The bonus is that my colour lasts longer too. :)

BTW, there is some question about the safety of tar shampoos, as the tar is carcinogenic in large doses.

Also, there has been recent info released about the effectiveness of bleach baths on eczema:

I know that my own dd's eczema improved greatly when she was swimming in a chlorinated pool on a regular basis too. That said, it works well as long as you're not sensitive to chlorine like I am (my skin reacts when I swim on a regular basis.)

My daughter uses the Dove with no problem but she doesn't have skin issues. I can't speak to any of the other brands. Before being dx'ed I used to have to use Pantene Dandruff or the back of my scalp was awful. Then I went semi-organic and try for unprocessed. It's not as "natural" as I'd like but now I use Organic Excellence, after trying many it was the only one I found that didn't make my head itch/burn. However I have scent issues, so there are many I can't use. Organic Excellence did not work for my son. I did find oddly enough, that the less processed corn products I eat, the less I itch.
