Gluten Free Mousse For Hair
0

6 posts in this topic

I wear my hair short and the top is spiked. I have to put mousse in my hair and the mousse I have been using has gluten in it. I just found out today, which certainly explains the itching I have been having on my scalp. Because I thought that might be the problem, I did not use any while I had shingles on my head and face for several months. When that healed, I went back to the mousse. Does anyone know of any that is a good product and does not have gluten in it. I really get tired of wearing baseball caps and would prefer to itch LOL. It is called vanity!

I use Giovanni products. I think (could be wrong) they have a mouse or gel. I buy at Ulta. You can buy online too.

I am sorry everyone, but I need an answer to my question and so I am bumping this back up.

We have over 29,000 members. Someone must be using a gluten free mousse. I don't need a gluten free jell, but a mousse. I have emailed Giovanni, like a member mentioned and I have not heard back. I called Ultra and they don't know. I have called Avon and no answer there.

I am hoping someone is using something that is gluten free that can be bought at Walgreen's or can be ordered online. Maybe someone else knows the name of a gluten free hairspray that is good.

I would change my hair style, but that is no longer an option. My hair is super fine and I have lost over half of my hair, because of the diagnosis of celiac being so delayed for years. If I wear my gray hair short and spiky, then I can hide how little of my hair is left.

So, I really hope someone knows of a mousse and maybe hairspray.

Thanks a bunch.

Hi Metta--I'm just seeing this now.....

I normally use their smoothing milk, but I have used an aerosol mousse from Garnier. I've found that a lot of their hair products are gluten-free, and the people who answer the phone at the 800# are nice and happy to look up the gluten status. :)

I just called them for you--the XXL Volume Thickening Mousse is gluten-free. I spoke to Irene @ Garnier--800-442-7643.

    •  Oh good luck with your challenge and I hope you're able to feel better soon!   Yes, I am well aware of Michael Marsh and his thoughts  and they are certainly in the back of my mind.  I was on gluten for 5 months when I had the most recent antibody testing. Admittedly my TTG was the highest I've ever seen it but it's still a 7 and the reference range goes up to 20.
    •  That is true most people on the board do refer for Endoscopy  and are responsible in their replies to people who are initially reaching out. But I did have experiences where some folks will tell people that  certain tests are only positive with celiac disease. Which is not the case, so I'm just reminding those folks. 
    • Yes!!!!  My best advice to expedite healing is to NOT eat out until you are feeling great and really think you have mastered the diet.  If you must eat out, use a site like "Find Me Gluten Free" and select only those restaurants reviewed by celiacs.  Otherwise pack your own food and eat at supermarkets.  I hope you feel better soon!  
    • Why?  Why bother to get tested?  A gluten challenge can be brutal and long (8 to 12 weeks for the blood test and 2 to 4 weeks for the endoscopy): http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ I just had anemia which prompted my doctor to run a celiac panel.  I waited 7 weeks for my endoscopy due to work constraints.  I ate gluten like crazy (I knew I had celiac disease in my heart).  At the end of those 7 weeks, I had all the classic gut symptoms which took over a year to resolve.  Even a glutening has triggered new  (I think) additional autoimmune issues.  I would urge you to to carefully consider the benefits of a challenge based on your current AI issues.  At least talk to a good doctor.   My hubby has been gluten-free for 16 years -- long  before my diagnosis and he does not know if he actually has celiac disease, but we know gluten makes him sick.  He chooses to never do a challenge.   As far as healing or seeing results.  It varies as we are all different.  My anemia, with supplements, resolved within three months but other issues took more than a year and I already had a good handle on the gluten free diet. Finally, reducing gluten is not an option for a celiac.  Anything over 20 parts per million can trigger a celiac disease flare-up for most celiacs. I hope this helps.  Just be sure you really research this throughly is my non-medical advice.    
    • People here are told to go to a gastroenterologist for an endoscopy if they show high on any one test. They are not told they have celiac. Weak high numbers can be other things, but strong high numbers are celiac most of the time. That's what my gastro told me. As nobody here is a doctor we can only give an opinion.
