Soy Intolerance-How Risky Are Shampoo And Conditioner?
0

4 posts in this topic

I don't know if this is the right forum for this...but I'll give it a shot.

I recently learned that the shampoo and conditioner I've been using, while gluten free, includes soy protien in its ingredients (they aren't listed on the label but when I inquired with the company they told me that they are used in the product). I have blood and stool test confirmed sensitivities to both gluten and soy. Do I need to get rid of these products?

FYI. I have very dry, curly hair and the products I'm referring to are Kinky-Curly Shampoo and Kinky-Curly Leave-In Conditioner. I've NEVER had products work so well on my hair so I'm very sad about the fact that I might need to eliminate them.

In an email from Kinky-Curly they stated:

"Our shampoo and deep conditioner contains Soy Protein but no gluten."

The trouble with shampoo and conditioner is that it can run down your face and get in your mouth. If you really don't want to change (and believe me I understand. I sobbed like a baby over Redken all being full of wheat) then you need to make sure that you keep your head back when you wash your hair and then if you leave the conditioner in for a few minutes, put a headband or something else to keep it from running down into your mouth.

I guess it would also depend on the severity of the intolerance because I'm sure that it's teeny weeny trace amounts that are into shampoo.

I just wanted to empathize because I'd have fits if I had to give up Kinky-Curly. I hope you find a way to keep using it. It's a shame that us curly-girls have such a limited number of products that actually work for our hair, let alone weeding through them if we have intolerances that narrow down the list even further. BTW, I love their curling custard.

Yup, I'm a big, BIG fan of their products! The curling custard is AMAZING and I am continuously amazed by the fact that I only need to use three products (sometimes hairspray too if it's really windy, or humid) and I'm out the door. Before I found Kinky-Curly stuff I was using loads of different products with tons of chemicals in them and I was still having hair issues. So far I'm just waiting it out until I'm done with the bottles of shampoo and conditioner that I have. Since the customer service rep didn't mention the curling custard as including soy I'm thinking that, at the very least, I'll be able to keep that part of my routine and possibly switch to another herbal/organic alternative.

I'm only recently on the diet (this is day 125 for me) but I'm doing much, MUCH better. I figure that if I get everything else figured out and I continue to feel good then it's not a problem. If I stop using the products for a while and feel even better then I guess that will be my answer. Even though it sucks.

Yay for the curly girls!

    • Designed to reduce or eliminate symptoms of gluten contamination in gluten-sensitive individuals, the product known as AN-PEP, marketed in the U.S. as Tolerase G, is a prolyl endoprotease enzyme, derived from Aspergillus niger, that has shown promise in breaking down gluten proteins. The latest news comes in the form of a small study that shows the enzyme to be effective in the stomach itself, where harshly acidic conditions render many enzymes ineffective. View the full article
    • I can not help you with a cheaper price (google it), but if you have celiac disease, I would make sure the alternative gluten free flours are not milled with gluten flours by calling the manufacturer.    I personally make sure that my gluten-free flours are certified gluten free.  I do not worry about a can of tomatoes.  Odds are the contents are just tomatoes and have not been exposed to gluten during the manufacturing process.   Be careful about buying from open bins in a store.  Chances for cross contamination are great!  We had a member here who smartly requested access to unopened bags each time she went into a store and bypassed the open bins.  The store was really nice about it.    
    • I think that your villi are intact.  So, normally that would mean no evidence of celiac disease.  But Victoria is right, that they should have run a celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  Why?  The small intestine is vast.  If spread out, it is larger than a tennis court!  The biopsies may not have captured the damaged areas. Consider asking your doctor for a celiac blood test and continue to eat gluten daily until the blood draw or better yet, until you get the test results.  A negative on the blood test will really help rule out celiac disease. A small price to pay for piece of mind.   i hope you feel better soon!  
    • Yes, it is the same test. When used in conjunction with  celiac testing, it verifies that the celiac IgA  test results are valid.  Used alone (not running the celiac tests), if  the Immunoglobulin A result is above or below range....then you are dealing with another set of problems.  For example, my result was above range.  This can be attributed to my having more than one autoimmune disorder and at the same time, it validated the IgA celiac test results.  
    • Grass fed is just the natural, traditional way of cattle eating -- eating grass on the range.  People now pay a higher price for this kind of meat.  It is a leaner meat because cattle do a lot of walking around to graze.    Cattle,  in feed lots or a combination, fatten up fast on a grain diet (e.g. Corn, sit, etc.), plus, we seem to be running out of land and cowboys!
