I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects. I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun. Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer. Nice of him to give me a heads up though. I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe. I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac. As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating. That is Celiac 101. You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips. Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut.
Hair salons........no, never had a problem. If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component. I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years. You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have. It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten.
I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
