I don't check my hair color. It's a personal choice and goes along with the TP, lotions, shampoo ect.

I have been gluten-free since April and my blood work was clear at 6 months and haven't had any flare ups either. So I don't think it(hair color ect) affects me.

That said I do not have DH....I think that people with that tend to be more sensitive to topicals.

I get my hair professionally colored, and my hair dresser uses Paul Mitchell hair color. I think they're all gluten-free (I don't know how many types they make...), but I would double-check (everything she's ever used on me is gluten-free). She called the hotline for me and asked about which of their products were gluten-free, and she said their customer service was extremely helpful. I also use some of their hair products that are gluten-free (there is a list somewhere on this forum of those).

Good luck! I hope your hair dresser carries Paul Mitchell!

I have my hair professionally colored with Wella products. I called and they are gluten free but they can't guarantee they are free from cc because they don't know what was bottled right before their products.

I use Herbatint and love it. It is an herbal tint and comes in both permanent and temporary forms (note: I have not checked the temporary forms for gluten statis). The thing I like most about them is you can mix just what you need and safe the rest for later use. I found the tint at Wegmans and also at my local health food store. The health food store doesn't carry it regularly but they order it when I need it so even if you don't see it in yours ask and they may be able to get it for you.

One last caution, the tint has a sample of their conditioner called Royal Creme that sample is NOT gluten free, I just toss it into my 'donation bag' for my local thrift store.

Sorry jmengert--every Paul Mitchell product I touched at the hair dresser a few weeks ago, contained gluten, it was listed clearly on the product, such as: wheat germ! Paul Mitchell is not safe for celiac's.

I use Garnier Nutrisse and have for several years. I have used L'Oreal and Herbal Essense, but prefer Garnier Nutrisse, but then I stick to the same color all the time, I just like to keep the gray covered.

Oh, there are a lot of Paul Mitchell products with gluten, but they also have many without, and the gluten is always clearly listed. I've been using them for a year without problems, and I am super sensitive, so the ones I'm using are fine.

Not all Paul Mitchell products have gluten.

Awaphui shampoo and contioner and styling products don't have gluten.

Shampoo One does contian wheat germ oil.

I use both but there are some P.M. products that don't contain gluten for those who still want to use it!

Ok, I stand corrected about some Paul Mitchell Products, all the ones I checked out had gluten in them. I'm glad your haircolor is gluten free.

    • I didn't mean my world fell apart because of celiac but because of something else. Finding out about celiac disease actually gave me hope.
    • @PosterboyOne thing is though I never get heartburn. And this only happens when I've consumed something for consecutive days, like I had the bananas and too many nuts. But if PH has something to do with it then maybe when I'm eating more vegetables and broth that's why I usually feel much better, it's more alkaline. On a ph urine test whenever I'm feeling like this I ALWAYS have a reading towards the acidic part. When I feel better it always goes towards the alkaline level and usually in the ideal level. Part of it started when I was under high stress in the first place. A few years ago. I couldn't eat as much/well because I was very worried about things. The realization about celiac came later but basically my world fell apart and I've fought but never felt really okay again. Then at the worst before I knew about celiac disease I was vomitting for days. Now I can eat many more foods but it's still very touchy if I don't strictly eat vegetables, broth, lots of water and small amounts of fats and protein. I'm scared to take anything artificial. I've only recently been able to take very small amounts of probiotics. Is there no way to repair your stomach acid without taking pills? Would going on a strict alkaline diet help?  I read everything you wrote except the link which I don't know if I can concentrate right now. If you are religious would you pls say a prayer for me? I'm pretty scared and about at my lowest.  I wouldn't normally ask on here, I guess I'm just scared. Thank you.
    • I have seen this a few times....run a gluten free bakery....one of my previous customers has the disease, but he gawks at my prices and then goes eats from other stores and consumes gluten products.....I tried offering freebies left over items to get him to switch....been watching him degrade over the past 3 years. He now walks...odd like Frankenstein with locked knees and a wobble and seems be much less active not appearing at this job few days a month now....I do worry about these people. Celiac effects everyone different some violently, others do not see the damage or have grown so use to the issues that they consider them normal. It is a sad thing to see. I have seen improvement in my own body following a strict diet and regime and see major consequences when I trip ......I can not imagine anyone cheating but my reactions are bad with many side effects. Celiac being a AI disease can cause other secondary complications I am all to aware of if  you cheat, mess up.
    • I don't know, it's probably best described as a lot of bile, sometimes yellow, sometimes green (sorry) and a lot of mucus (sorry_) and when I eventually throw it up  (if it gets to that point) it's burning in my throat, so I equate it with acid. Also because of the term "antacid" I think of it as a lot of acid but I guess it's a lot of bile, mucus and I thought the extra stomach acid produced dealing with whatever food I ate. I've done the wrong thing though because now I'm in the pain I was dreading, with swollen eyes and everything and really bad depression now and hopelessness. I keep feeling like it's all futile and too late. That however hard I try I can't figure everything out in time to be well.
