Alba Shampoo Has Wheat In It Now
1 1

4 posts in this topic

Alba has added Hydrolyzed wheat protein to their shampoo/cream rinse. My daughter pointed it out just a few hours ago. I bought this a week ago and have been sick all week, and also have sores that have formed on my head. Now I know why....GGGGRRRR.

I went to the Alba website and their shampoos/cream rinses do not have wheat in the ingredients list. This must be a new formula and the website is not yet updated. But all 5 bottles that I purchaed clearly state "hydrolyzed wheat protien" in the ingredients list.

The ones I have are "Alba Botanica plumeria replenishing hair wash" and "Alba Botanical gardenia hydrating hair conditioner". I've used this shampoo and cream rinse for for over a year, and it was gluten-free. Periodically, I have checked the ingredients to make sure it was still gluten-free, but didn't read it on this last purchase. I am soo unhappy, and they ARE going back to the store! I have 5 ickey big sores on my head from using the shampoo/cream rinse for one week, and I have felt crummy all week as well.....live and learn!!! GGGGGRRRRRRRR :angry:

The rule is to always read the ingredients list, no matter how many times you have purchased a product. <_<

I just bought some labeled in 2013 and there is no longer hydrolyzed wheat protein, they have replaced it with soy protein. . I have had no reactions so far so good.

    • Welcome!   Sorry to hear that you had been gluten free when you were tested for celiac disease.  The only way to get an official diagnosis is to do a gluten challenge under a doctor's care: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ As far as recovering from a glutening?  Everyone is different.  It can take a week or months to recover.  There is no speedy way...rest, stay hydrated....  
    • 🤗.  Okay.....but what is the cause for the low ferritin?  A glutening?  When was the last time you had a celiac antibodies test or do you use DH flare-ups as a gauge?  
    • Ok... drum roll.... Cyclinglady wins! I am just anemic - ferritin is quite bad (10ng/mL), but hemoglobin still intact. Didn't get a look at the full results (Canada problems - doctors only give you the full print-off if you harass them for it), but everything else was apparently ok. I'll be downloading the full results for my file tomorrow from the lab. Not too worried about this, as I've been much more anemic in the past and managed to recover pretty quickly via supplementation. I'll be back for a second blood test in 6 weeks to check it's worked. So while this certainly answers the question of why I've been feeling so crappy for the last few months, the iodine thing still remains a bit of a mystery. I have been avoiding large hits of iodine for about a week and will probably keep at it for a few more to see what (if anything) happens. But for now... more steak and liver haha.
    • I only test positive to the DGP IgA (even in follow-up testing) and my biopsies were a Marsh Stage IIIB.  Thankfully, my GI ran the entire panel!  Most doctors prefer the good, but cheaper TTG IgA test, but it does not catch all celiacs like me.   In fact, it often does not catch young children and really old people based on a few pretty recent studies.  I would also suggest requesting the rest of the celiac panel.   Keep advocating!  😊
    • Just search for GIs in your area.   Usually doctors post biographies.  Look for someone who mentions celiac disease in his/her bio.  Then call the office to confirm.   Sacramento is a pretty big city.  If you are not successful, there is a celiac disease center at Stanford University.
