Okay, I Am Confused...

I don't quite understand why we have to be careful about hair dye.... Does the dye absorb through our scalp? It can't be because of the hands, because we wear gloves when we apply it..... Is it only celiacs with DH that have to worry, or all of us?

Thanks for any input.....

Well, I know that the gluten would not be absorbed through the scalp. Gluten molecules are too large to be absorbed through the skin. Obviously, a shampoo should be gluten-free.....after all, it could get in your mouth, eyes, etc. I had actually been thinking about that lately, cause I thought I had read to be careful about it, but didn't remember why. Hmm.....could it be something about if your hair gets in your mouth? I don't really know, but I had been thinking about that the past few days.

I cannot imagine why hair dye would be a problem. However, some people want to make sure EVERYTHING they use is gluten-free, which is OK.

I'm not an expert, but I have experience with the hair dye sensitivity. I have celiac disease and DH. Most hair dyes leave me with DH blisters in my scalp and on my face. It doesn't bother me on the inside, just on the outside! (And I hope no one is getting dye in their mouth. I don't think that's very tasty!)

Hi,

I don't have DH, but after I went gluten-free my scalp started to itch,

so i stopped using shampoos with wheat, but it still itches.

I use scalpicin for the itch. I am terrified to use any coloring

or perms. One time I had a perm and my scalp burned

for weeks. That was before I went gluten -free. My theory is that

I have a skin sensitivity to a lot of products and have to be careful.

I get my hair colored too, no problems with that in the past. But I think my shampoo may be affecting me??? I thought I'd read somewhere that those with celiac disease may become sensitive to other products down the line (such as hair color, shampoo, detergents, etc...) Can't recall where or when though. I'm gonna have to look through some old celiac disease research stuff. I have binders full. Maybe speak to a stylist regarding your sensitivity and see and he/she can recommend anything. Perhaps speaking w/ a dermatologist would be beneficial too.

    • MK4800 I had it on a trial/rental for a bit trying to purchase one now. Things pretty good, and the cheapest on the market. If you order from the factory it cost $995 ($650+$345 s&H) I started a fund raiser from my bakery for it.   As for retail if you order on Amazon or Ebay your looking to pay $1100-1400 for it.    If your really interested I can give the sales rep your email and she can contact you about getting one. https://www.mkkchina.com/product/ice-cream-making-machine/ My plans when I get my own is to use it for catering, markets, and events. I found it on rental from a company out of Houston and tried it. Then looked into purchasing one.  
    • Ennis, Egg yolks are what make custard based ice creams. But you have me thinking. I make a frozen peanut butter pie where I make a Swiss butter cream frosting with added peanut butter. It tastes amazing. For my kids with lactose issues, butter isn't a problem (just fresh milks and cheeses), so I add butter to the whipped cooked egg whites then room temperature natural peanut butter. So I think that heating the honey and whites in a double boiler, then whipping and adding any solid fat would work. Then freeze (no need to churn because the whites and fat provide you with structure).   For Father's Day I made a chocolate brownie (cashew butter base) in a spring form pan, scooped out the center of the brownie leaving just a shell, added the peanut butter filling described above and topped with reserved brownie bits, froze that, then added a chocolate avocado ice cream and topped with chopped homemade dark paleo chocolate chunks...It was terrific! What industrial ice cream maker do you use?  I'm tired of making small batches of ice cream. 
    • Hello and welcome to the forum! i don't have a solution for you but I can tell you I had the same thing happen. After going gluten-free I was so extremely sensitive and the issue I had was the dh. I think I've read you can have flare ups even without gluten for quite a while. I certainly did! How long have you been gluten-free? I had flare ups and itching when I would even have foods that were supposedly less than or equal to 20 ppm. This went on for maybe a year? Something extremely ridiculous like that. Then one day my dh turned purpley and flattened out. Then one day it was a bit more skin colored and disappeared. Never had the problem since. good luck with it. I'm sure some others will chime in with their advice and great knowledge as well. You found a great place to be! It's my safe haven.
    • Victoria - Thanks for reply, man last night I was so itchy, and on a spot that hadn't been itchy for months! I'll keep an eye on gluten-free foods too

      artistsl - My hand was itchy yesterday and I ended up putting some off-brand neosporin on and it did help, so I'm glad we both had the same idea haha. Also I can't believe I forgot about hand soap! I've checked my shower bar soap (Dove) but for some reason I completely forgot to check the hand soaps here and at work, thanks! Oh and I don't need to see the pictures, I think I'm getting a better handle on what my body is doing now, but thanks! I've also stopped taking ibuprofin at night as a 'test' and I was itchy as hell like directly at midnight, but that might have been a coincidence so I'll keep going without that, and once a week I would put on that steroid cream I got from the dermatologist to help the really bad itching but I'm stopping that too.

      Thanks again everyone, man am I glad this forum exists!
