I use mostly the Garneir Nutritioneste line for hair and skin care. I have used Giovanni hair care in the past but had to stop when I realized I had issues with soy. I haven't checked their skin care. I tried California Baby, ordered some shampoo and conditioner on line but I didn't care for them. Not a gluten issue just not the stuff for me.

Recently my local health food store has gotten some stuff called Himalaya brand. I tried the conditioner and it smells heavenly. The bottle is really stiff though and I had such trouble getting it out of the bottle I haven't bought it again.

I have also used Suave products with no issues when the budget is lean. Suave and Dove will both clearly label gluten ingredients.

I also use Suave products...not necessarily because my budget is lean but rather because I am cheap! laugh.gif I used to be a product snob but now I just want clean hair and frankly, I can't tell the difference.

I also like Soft Soap and use it in my shower as well as at my sinks in the bathrooms and kitchen. I ditched my Bath & Body Works products.

ETA: I bought some Garnier mousse yesterday...hope I like it!

I too have used Suave when I didn't feel like shelling out for the good stuff, but I have a HUGE issue with paying money for ingredients I can't pronounce or don't know the sources of. I'm not washing my hair with something that contains the same chemicals as furniture stripper. So when I can, I get Shikai shampoo and conditioner. I get my soaps from a little Mennonite herbalist near me who hand-makes them. :)
