Hi everyone! I was just wondering if anyone knows if Revlon Colorsilk hair dye is gluten free? I am new to this and there are so many ingredients, that although I went through all of them, I am still confused. Some are definitely questionable. I can NOT stop dyeing my hair. Gray at 35 is not cool. :-/

I don't know what the ingredients are but I wouldn't worry.  Dye your hair, just don't eat it.   :D

You don't have to stop dying your hair. I dye my graying hair all of the time!

Not sure that any hair dye products would be an issue since you are not ingesting them. 

I was gray at 30 (I know, not fair!) lol and started dying it then. Not gonna be white. Nope, no way! lol

Garneir will clearly label gluten ingredients. I use their shampoos and conditioners and back when I was still concerned about getting rid of gray they were the brand I used.

Thanks everyone. My doctor said that I need to watch everything I put on my skin, breathe in, etc... I am HIGHLY sensitive and in the most progressive stage of Celiac's at this point. He pretty much told me to not even look at gluten. Ha! That is why I am so concerned right now.

Thank you Ravenwoodglass! I will go take a look at their products. I already have a box of Revlon though, and I've given away enough crap already. I am also wondering if the hair dye is what is causing my hair to fall out so much. Did anyone else have this problem? I am using organic, gluten free shampoo and conditioner, so it can't be that.

I never heard of "progressive stage Celiac".  If you go gluten-free, it shouldn't be "progressing"

 

Here is some info from Celiac experts.  If you are not ingesting it, it should be fine.

 

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/is-hair-loss-associated-with-celiac-disease

Is hair loss associated with celiac disease?

Hair loss can certainly happen, especially in young adults, but more so as a result of nutrient deficiencies than through association with celiac disease.

 

 

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/what-ingredients-should-i-avoid-in-cosmetic-products

What ingredients should I avoid in cosmetic products?

Gluten is only toxic to celiac patients and patients with dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) if ingested. Because gluten cannot be absorbed through the skin, the use of cosmetic and shampoos containing gluten has not been shown to be detrimental to patients with celiac disease or DH. However, we do recommend gluten-free lip products, hand lotions and other products that may end up near the mouth. And, in the case of children, a gluten-free shampoo would be wise.

There're stages 1, 2, 3, 3a, 3b, and 3c when it comes to how far the disease has progressed...meaning how much damage it has done. I am at stage 3c. Maybe I worded it wrong. Sorry. Also, I live in Germany, so I don't see a US doctor for this. They may have a different way of "classifying" the damage that gluten has done to the body.

Thanks for the information! I am going to pick up Garnier today. Looked at it online and they have my color too, so that's great! :-)

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
