Shea Moisture Hair Care

4 posts in this topic

So my hair had been getting really dry, and I decided it was time for a shampoo change.  I went in search of finding gluten free products, and ended up in Target looking around and found Shea Moisture products, which are labeled gluten free.  It's only been a week of use, but my hair is already softer and my scalp is not as dry.  Before spending the money at Target, I went and read reviews first, and then made the purchase.  I bought the moisture retention shea shampoo and conditioner, but they have one for curly hair and several other hair types.  They are on sale BOGO 50% on Walgreens.com this week, but I think today is the last day of that sale.  I would recommend these!

 

PS-I've always had fine, stick straight hair that never holds curl.  Some peoples hair poofs up in humidity, and mine goes even straighter.  In fact, when I was younger, my Mom took me to get my hair permed at a nice salon, and much to her disappointment, the expensive, supposedly permanent salon perm came out within a few days.  that's when she stopped suggesting I always curl it  :P

Thank you for the idea. I was looking for a good shampoo and my hair and scalp is very dry, too.

I read on another website that gluten can't be absorbed through the skin as the molecules are too large. Is this not right?

hi dozey,

 

it seems to be a personal choice whether to use gluten free hair, skin and makeup products.  I've also read that the molecule is too large to be absorbed through the skin, but especially with hair care, what if some happens to run down your face and get in your mouth, or you don't wash your hands after touching your face with makeup containing gluten and then use your hands to touch food going into your mouth?  I'm trying to cover all my bases, but in the end you've got to make your own choice about using gluten free hair and skin products  :)

I read on another website that gluten can't be absorbed through the skin as the molecules are too large. Is this not right?

    • Any good Doctor/nurse will notice the symptoms to gluten allergies.  Weak knees, weak ankles.   Check out if  you need to take more vitamin D. And any other vitamins/supplements.
    • now thats  deal for there.  My wife just  bought the big two jar set yesterday forgetting they  we bought one set together last week. Going to be having a lot of them over the next few months!  
    • Hi all!  Been coming to this forum since my diagnosis in October of 2016. Since my diagnosis it's been an up and down fight but I have more good days then bad ones now that I've been 5 months gluten free. Had a few accidents along the way but we keep going!  Recently I noticed a black vertical line that comes from the middle of my nail shooting straight up to the top. It appears to be in the thumb nail. All my other nails on my toes and hands are clear.  I did some research on this and it says it's called a splinter hemorrhage. These can be associated with many different issues ranging from endocarditis to a trauma to malnutrition. Has anyone else experienced these?  I would attach a picture of my right thumb nail but for some reason it says the picture is to large to upload. 
    • Universal testing should start in all schools as early as possible.  I was diagnosed  in 7th grade from a basic sports examination by a Dr.   My Father basically turned a blind eye and said nothing wrong with my son.  A basic examination by a Doctor or good Nurse can see the signs of Gluten allergies. Just need the direction to do so. 
    • Thank you all so much.  It's so great to know there are people out there that have shared my experience. I was feeling quite alone in this. I could never believe that I just had anxiety, and that was that. There has to be a reason for my body to act this way. I feel validated,and hopeful and that's a huge thing for me. I'm going to see my doctor next week, and see what she thinks. I'm hopeful that with all my symptoms (anxiety, skin rashes for months, sensitivity to light|sound, headaches, vertigo, temper) she won't shrug me off. My mom has Crohn's disease so maybe a connection. Thanks again for your advice and your ear, it truly helps.
