I use Clairol Nice and Easy, which reads gluten-free according to the ingredients, and I've used it 4 or 5 times without problems.

I used Garnier Nutrisse last time and really liked it, and it reads gluten free, too.

I use Feria by Loreal. I contacted the company and was told there was no gluten whatsoever in the product.

Another forum, they are telling me that it is ok to use the color with wheat, because there is almost no chance you'll ingest it. And it will eventually wash off cause its just the protein that makes it stick...

im confused?!

Believe me, I'm no expert on this, but I was under the impression that the wheat was used for conditioning purposes. Some companies use silk or soy proteins instead. I don't see how it would make the color stick--my color lasts for a good 8 weeks.

I also think that the wheat would be washed away. If you do decide to try it out, just make sure that the shampoo or conditionor doesn't get into your mouth after the first week or so of washes.

Since you're darkening your hair and it's already been lightened previously, you might want to consider using a demipermanent color, which doesn't contain lighteners (bleach or ammonia) and is gentler.

Well, I did have my hair highlighted last summer, and the dye/toner had wheat protein in it. This is coming from a person literally never eats out and worries about CC constantly, so doing this was a *huge* leap of faith for me. And I was fine--I told my hairdresser the situation, and I kept my mouth firmly shut as she rinsed out the dye in case any splashed up in my face when she rinsed my hair. When I washed my hair at home afterward, I did the same thing and was very careful. I never got sick, and I'm micro-sensitive.

However, as nervous as it all made me, I don't know if I would do it again, but I know it's possible to do it safely.

yeah, I do... I don't worry about what's in my hair color... I used to be a hairdresser and I do my own color, but I buy the pro stuff at Sally's...

I have had some mysterious accidental glutenings, but I don't think they had anything to do with hair color.

Never thought about hair color ... and I thought I'd checked everything! :blink: Most of the time I just get bleached highlights ... my hair's pretty light anyway, but occassionally get lowlights, too, so I'll have to check them out next time; but just to be aware to be careful for some time afterward as I'll still get them. I would think the bleach would be okay. I've already checked all the other stuff she uses. Gosh, this list of things to check seems never-ending!

I don't trust myself with doing my own color. I only go to Aveda salons, and I know most of their stuff has wheat, but I haven't gotten sick. I'm just careful for a few days.

You don't have to avoid wheat in hair color unless you have a topical allergy to wheat. No one should ever get color into their mouths anyway and unless you are a hair chewer, it should not be a problem...as you have discovered. Color does not absorb into the skin as peroxide is used and that burns off quickly once it hits air.It's a chemical reaction.

I have colored my hair for years and use Framesi hair color. I have no idea whether it contains wheat or not because I don't ingest it. I have never, ever had any problems with it and I am super sensitive....I don't eat from shared lines as I have gotten sick from doing that. Hair color is not a worry unless there are other allergies at play.

Is the Goldwell hair color gluten free? I don't want to take any chances!!

Thanks!

This thread is from 2006. As the pp mentioned if you don't have a topical reaction you probably don't need to worry about it. I have topical reactions however (due to a wheat allergy) and do try to look into everything so I understand why you would ask. You will probably get better (and more up-to-date) answers by contacting the manufacturer directly.

Garnier Nutrisse original with avocado/grapeseed oil (2011) is gluten free.

I have very sensitive skin and haven't had any problems.

I do not use any sort of conditioner with any sort of wheat/gluten/oat products, I refuse to get that oily residue smeared all over the place.

While it is somewhat controversial over whether or not topical applications make a difference, those of us who have had longer hair and past problems with shampoos/conditioners are happier with the results of careful avoidance. Soy (why, oh why do they put this in shampoo) makes my scalp slightly itchy now, also, but in the past I've had some real intense reactions to shampoos and could never figure out the common allergen chemical.

edited to add if you want natural hair care tips you can check out the Long Hair Forum (even if you have short hair) for ideas.

Apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, and shea butter are your friends!

Ok, it's way expensive to start but after the initial cost, I cannot recommend dreamcatchers hair extensions enough! My hair was so dry from all my deficiencies, & I splurged (when I could affORD it, & got them). They stay inyour hair like your own normal hair & u can wash it less often & they always look great. U never have to color them. You just get your roots touched up every so often & I have a stylist who knows my health issues. So I get the roots (but my extenstions blend so well that I hardly see my roots until it's a disaster (which it never really is). Then I just get partial foils. My hair looks luxurious all the time. I wash it and let it air dry. I barely do anything to it. I can sleep in a braid & wake up with spiral curls. I can brush it straight. Instead of haIr cuts, I go every other month and have them pulled up. I'm seriously Ill (that's another story) so the extensions have been a great investment & it's nice to have pretty hair when ur sick & cant deal with worrying about it. Aa for conditioners, I used to search for the perfect products but I dont need them now! It's expensive, I warn u, but only for the initial hair.

    • Positive biopsy and blood work?  It sure sounds like your doctor made the right diagnosis.   Let me tell you my story.  Diagnosed after going for a routine colonoscopy because I am over 50.  GI saw my chart and noted that I was anemic.  I have a genetic anemia and I was iron deficient as well.  I lived like that my entire life.  But my wise GI ordered a celiac blood panel and it was considered mildly positive.  So, he ordered an endoscopy to my colonoscopy.   I had been dairy free since I was young.  Was told that I had an allergy.  I had not any GI issues with gluten.   I was an avid baker.  I had nut issues and also mushroom, garlic/onion, and egg intolerances.  I had some pretty severe allergies to medications (anaphylactic) and some seasonal allergies along cats and horses.   I was shocked.  My husband had been gluten free for 12 years prior to my diagnosis.  There is no way both of us would have gluten issues.  But...the tests did not lie.  My iron deficiency anemia resolved within months of my going gluten free.  Two months into the diagnosis, I fractured my back doing NOTHING!  I have osteoporosis as a results of having celiac disease.   Grief is completely understandable.  Denial is a part of grieving.  But the proof will be in follow-up blood tests and how you feel.   So, now I can eat nuts (not almonds), eggs (two a day every single)  and dairy.  Yes, ice cream!  I have yet to get back garlic and mushrooms, but I can live with that.   I have Hashimoto’s too.  .  Once you have one autoimmune disorder, you can develop more.  The gluten-free diet may help, not only your celiac disease, but your UC issues as well.   Try the diet.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised!  
    • Hi Sofie! Listen to KarenG.   We both had iron deficiency anemia when we were diagnosed.  Plus, I have Thalassemia which is a genetic anemia on top of the iron deficiency anemia.   Dumping iron into your system is not the solution.  You need to be seriously gluten free.  You are probably unknowingly damaging other parts of your body....like your bones.  Two months after my diagnosis, I fractured my back doing NOTHING!  Think you are just not getting enough oxygen to your brain?  Think again!  It is probably related to celiac disease.  Celiac disease is systemic.  It is not just about villi damage.   But why am I telling a college student this?   You should be researching your autoimmune illness and ensuring that you do not develop Cancer (rare) or another autoimmune disorder like lupus, diabetes, thyroiditis, MS, Crohn’s, or one of the almost 100 other Autoimmune disorders (common).    Get your antibodies down.  Your mild anemia is the least of your problems.  Raising  your ferritin level may help a little, but healing from celiac disease will help you a lot more!    
    • Let my start by giving a brief summary of what I’ve been diagnosed with. Just over the past year I’ve been diagnosed with Celiac, EOE, lactose intolerance, soy allergy, tree nut allergy. Most recently diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. The Colitis came 8 months after having found out I had celiac. I have never had problems with gluten in my life. Dairy was something I had to eliminate because of the excrutiating stomach pains I would get from it. But I can have gluten any day and not have a problem.  I was diagnosed with a biopsy and followed by bloodwork. But who’s to say that dairy wasn’t the cause? I just feel like the GI was very quick to jump on the diagnoses without fully understanding my medical history, prescriptions I’ve took in the past ie long term antibiotic use, accutance, and 7 years of constant NSAID use.
    • I think she wants you to be strictly gluten free and heal.  Not give you things to patch up the damage you are causing by not getting your antibodies down and healing.   I am sure  she expected that you would take your diagnosis seriously and eat gluten-free.  4 months after your diagnosis, your antibodies would have gone down better.  But you weren't eating gluten free.  Eat gluten free. Take your supplements.  Read about the correct way to get your iron up - B12, vitamin C, don't take with calcium foods, etc  
    • Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice from y'all about iron IV infusions. First, some background: I was diagnosed with celiac disease at the beginning of June this year (2017).  I had labs done in March and my serum ferritin was 5 ng/mL. Hgb was 11.1, which isn't all that low, but is still flagged as below the normal range. I took 325 mg ferrous gluconate supplements daily for two months, and when my ferritin was rechecked, it was down to 4. The doctor ordered a celiac antibody panel and all of the levels were high. Confirmed with endoscopy at the end of May. A month later, I left for a 2-month study abroad program in France (aka the land of bread and pastries). After returning to the US at the beginning of August, I finally went gluten-free.  At the beginning of September, I returned to my University. Almost immediately, I realized I was really tired and was having a hard time making it through the day without a nap. I finally had a follow-up GI appointment around September 20th with the PA of the doctor who performed my endoscopy (not the same doctor from March). During the appointment, I asked her what we would do if my labs showed an iron-defiency. She told me that we would either do oral supplements or IV infusions, depending on whether or not she thought I'd absorb the supplements. When the lab results came in on the online patient portal, she made no comment on any of the iron-related results, just sent me a message that my antibody levels were still quite high, that I needed to keep up a strict gluten-free diet, and that we would recheck everything in six months. My ferritin was down to 3, Hgb was 10.3, iron saturation 6%, etc.  I was concerned about those results, so I called the PA's nurse and left a voicemail asking what the plan was for getting those levels up and got a portal message back from the PA saying that my hemoglobin was slightly low and will get better over time as I cut out all the gluten in my diet, but that I can start taking supplements if I want to speed up the process. I know that the Hgb still isn't that low, but it seems like the ferritin level is more serious. I went back for an appointment with the doctor who first found the iron-deficiency back in the spring and she seemed a lot more concerned. When I brought up IV iron therapy, she seemed to think it was a good idea. However, she's a primary care physician through my school's clinic, so she can't give me infusions. She called the PA with the intention of finding out whether or not she would change her mind about infusions, and had no luck. Interestingly, the PA's nurse informed her that they don't expect me to be able to absorb the supplements right away, and would consider IV infusions after I've been gluten-free for another six months.  I've done a bit of research on the IV infusions and it seems like I fit the criteria. Based on my antibody levels, I'm clearly not able to absorb iron any better than back in the spring, when the oral supplements did nothing for me. I understand that once my intestines heal more, I'll start being able to absorb iron better and should be able to boost my levels with oral supplements. However, I feel like I need a solution that will help me much sooner. I have a very demanding course load this semester and I'm constantly exhausted. I fall asleep doing homework at least twice a week. My grades are suffering, my mental health is suffering, and my relationships are being tested. I still don't have an explanation for why the PA doesn't think IV infusions are appropriate and I don't understand it. I really don't know what to do next because I'm afraid if I try to talk to the PA again, she'll get annoyed. I know that was super long, so for anyone still reading, thank you for bearing with me!! Now for the questions: 1. Do you think iron IV infusions in the near future would be a reasonable treatment for me? 2. Do you have any advice on how to make them happen? And if you have any other advice that's relevant to my situation, I'd love to hear it!   Thanks so much, Sofie
