Can I use a shampoo that contains wheat proteins if I do not rub it into my head?

Thanks!

You can rub it into your scalp all you want because you can't absorb gluten that way. The real danger is that most people get a little into their mouth and swallow it.

Something else to consider--I never reacted to wheat in products that I didn't ingest (shampoo, lotion, etc.). However, now that I've been gluten-free for six months, if anything with gluten gets on me, I develop a little red itchy rash--it's not DH, but a rash nonetheless. Just something I wanted to address, so that's why I always use gluten-free products whether I will ingest them or not.

It would not bother you skin wise unless you have DH. I keep all gluten free products that I use on my hands(like lotions and soaps), and around my face because the chances of it getting into your mouth are pretty high

I get a rash whenever I use anything on my skin that contains wheat. If it does not bother you, and you do not chew your hair, then I don't see why you couldn't use it.

What brands of gluten-free shampoos and lotions do you use. My daughter needs some lotion and I am scared to use what I have. Any suggestions would be great!

I tend to use baby shampoo for her hair but she has really curly hair and I need something for that too!

I use alot of Dove soaps, shampoos, conditioners, hairsprays, moisturizers, etc.

Dove is a brand that will not hide anything on their label so they will tell you on the label if it contains wheat,rye,barley,oats.

Well makeup like lipstick is essential. Other makeup to me is essential because when you take it off there is possibilities of getting traces into your mouth..and if you touch your face throughout the day or rub your eyes, etc ...there are just numerous ways to be glutened.

With soaps&lotions, when you wash your hands and then prepare your food...if the soap was not gluten free then your food may now be contaminated

With shampoos it is very easy to get traces into your mouth.

My personal opinion is that things you put on your head, face, and hands should be gluten free to make sure that you have no possibility of being glutened from that angle.

Do you have any suggestions for the gluten free makeup? I currently us Almay foudation....don't wear lipstick.....Garnier Fructis is the shampoo brand I use and Clinque face soap, cleanser and moisturizer.

It is hard trying to work fulltime and find out all the info on this disease :(

Garnier should be ok for shampoo...I think some people on here use that..I'm thinking that was an ok brand but someone else may know for sure...also if you check the threads in the product section you should be able to find alot of this info.

Clinique only has some gluten free products so you have to check on that...I had to throw my lipstick by them away because I could not get a direct answer out of them.

Dove has new body lotions out...I haven't checked to see if they are gluten free yet but they will tell you right on the label if it contains wheat,rye,barley,oats.

The whole Bare Escentuals makeup line is gluten free.

Hang in there it's not as hard as it may seem

gluten-free toilettries is a personal call - one that I choose to answer by keeping them gluten-free. Makes me feel better, and that's what matters. I prefer Dove Shampoo/Conditioner (not combined, but the two of them), though I've also used Pantene in the past. As for lotions, I don't use a lot, but what I use is either Neutrogena products (gotta love a 26-year old's acne... most are gluten-free, check the label) and lotion that Alba Botanicals makes. Mmm... Papaya Mango body cream... smell like heaven all day! :-)

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
