Gluten Free Natural Shampoo

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone know of a good gluten free shampoo that is natural? Something my current shampoo is making me itch (Head and Shoulders), so I need something else (btw, I am a guy). And also, looking for something that is actually more natural vs. labeled natural with a bunch of chemicals.

Thanks

In addition to gluten intolerance, I'm also allergic to dairy, soy and vanilla (which are often ingredients in shampoos). No matter how careful I am, I sometimes get shampoo (and/or creme rinse) in my mouth. I always have gastrointestinal reactions to my allergens. So I needed to find a shampoo which was free of my 7 allergens.

I now use ShiKai naturals shampoo (also available in a version for color treated hair) and everyday conditioner. I haven't had any reactions for over a year now. I buy Shikai hair products at Whole Foods, but noticed several other chain drugstores carry Shikai (but not always the shampoo for color treated hair).


Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.

I also would suggest Shikai. Giovanni is another that might be a good one for you.
