Gluten Free Hair Dye

Recommended Posts

talk about late...I walked into this thread and started with the last post

 

doh...I use whatever is on special at Target -- no problems to date -- and I might add I am not in need of dye nearly as often as prior to dx :D

 

you know, Ski...some women say they are "less gray" after Dx and I think that's fascinating. That their re-growth is slow is very interesting to me..

I wish I could say the same. I started going gray in my 30's, like my mother, my sister and every other female in my family.

 

Ah well, I enjoy my stylist Marshall's stories at the salon (his mom is a celiac--go figure) and my hair looks thicker when it is colored, (and many years

of being UNDxed left me with a pretty slim mane, )so

I will continue to be a "dy-er". 

 

Frankly, I think we should all be more concerned with the amount of chemicals in this crap than the remote possible "gluten" that may or may not be in it.

IMHO

I appreciate the info on hair dye as I obviously do have a "topical sensitivity".  I've been going to my stylist and using Aveeda hair dye and shampoos and like someone in the forum....I have scratched my head off!!!!  I cannot stand it....so itchy and is there until I stop using the wheat products.  So my stylist researched Aveeda and sure enough it does have wheat in the hair dye and in some of the shampoos....only Aveeda shampoo that doesn't have wheat is Brilliant(only the Brillant products do not contain wheat).  So back to Loreal for me.  It doesn't bother me.  (The only symptom I had was the horrible itching).

I react to products used in my hair and skin but when I switched to gluten free ones I stopped getting sick . I don't know why but my best guess is that I have longer hair and it gets in my mouth, or if I work out sunscreen/moisturizer /makeup may run into my face?

That's just a guess! All I know is I get sick when personal care products aren't gluten free. I can tell you the story of how I figured it out cause to be honest, I didn't believe that I am as sensitive as I am for years .

Anyway I totally understand wanting gluten free hair dye. I usually use light mountain natural henna. I buy it from amazon. It's kinda messy though but it's worth not feeling sick!

I also used garnier a few weeks ago without any problems at all. I had bought it about a year ago and was scared to try. However I was really careful to keep my hair away from my mouth while rinsing so that's not a guarantee!

Hope you find something good in Dubai. I know this isn't the forum for it but I'm so curious about what it's like to live there!

I would imagine that most people do not get hair dye in their mouths because it wouldn't be any potential gluten in it that would worry me.  Hydrogen peroxide is not something to

ever get in your mouth and the other chemicals, if ingested, might land you in the ER or placing a call to the poison center.  So, if people think they are being glutened by their hair dye without landing in the ER, I think the odds of a pole shift are much greater than being glutened from it.  If you are ingesting enough of a wheat filled hair dye to feel sick with celiac symptoms, it is more likely from the chemicals and I would stop doing that or go to the hospital.

 

The second issue is that any gluten component from a shampoo or hair dye might be from tocopherols. Here is some reading on that subject....http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/newsletter/vitamin-e-from-wheat-germ-oil/.  Tricia Thompson is a very trusted source!

    • The distillation process does prevent the gluten protein from passing through the filtration process.  However for people who are gluten intolerant like I am, the cross contamination that occurs prior to distillation is still present after distillation.  Therefore while the protein molecule isn't present, the distilled liquid is cross contaminated by containing the gluten protein molecule prior to the distillation process.  I get very ill from any distilled alcohol that contained gluten prior to be being distilled.  For those of you that are gluten intolerant, please be exceptionally careful. Extracts are another thing to stay away from for the same reason.  We have to make our own.  It's a long process but worth not getting sick.
    • I just do a variety of gluten free foods.  Many because someone doesn't like cheese on his potatoes or someone won't eat something else.   I figure they won't starve if all they like is the turkey and the canned cranberry or the sweet potatoes and the apple sauce.  
    • Did the doctor diagnose you with anything?  It sounds like diverticulitis.  Usually treated with 10 days of antibiotics.  Infection can improve, but if it isn't 100% cleared, it can flare up again.  I just had a flare up that didn't improve after 10 days on meds.  Ended up in the hospital for 5 days of IV  antibiotics.  This condition is not related to Celiac.  Let your doctor know you are still feeling pain.  In the meantime, take it easy (eat low fiber) for a couple of weeks and see if that helps.  Call doctor if you develop sharp pain, fever, or blood in your stool.  
    • People who do not have celiac disease, but who have celiac-like symptoms that improve on a gluten-free diet are prime candidates for a condition called non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). Researchers don't know much about the condition. There are no biomarkers, so they can't just do a blood test. People with this condition often experience celiac-like symptoms. Many of people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity see their symptoms improve on a gluten-free diet. However, these people may also have puzzling sensitivities to other foods that just don't seem to add up. Interestingly, foods with gluten often contain fructans, a type of fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols (FODMAPs). Fructan is one such compound. Could fructan be the culprit?

    • Well timed Pep talk Admin. I am trying to accommodate all my intolerances this year to make dinner. Last year  I will admit I was so ill, I didn't bother doing a holiday dinner. My spouse (bless him) handled creating a small safe meal in 2016 as I sulked in the corner miserable as T-Day was my favorite holiday. I was still eating blender foods back in Nov 2016 post gluten challenge, so I sulked, pitied myself, and felt very far from holiday spirit and quite honest was not very thankful despite some long overdue medical clarity.  Ahh so here we are 2017,  I can have potato's again, thank goodness my daughter wants garlic mash.  They are back on the menu! Now I just have to try to convert my pumpkin ice cream pie to coconut milk style ice cream vs cow milk ice cream and master gluten-free crusts. Fingers crossed. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and if you are in the Celiac newly diagnosed pit the sun will rise again -stay with us.
