Favorite Gluten Free Haircare Products?

23 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone! I haven't had much time to really look into various gluten free haircare products, so I was curious to know what everyone uses or recommends? I've resorted to some of the cheaper products that don't really work well on my hair. Right now I'm using L'Oreal's EverStrong shampoo and conditioner. I also use Garnier Fructis mousse and sometimes Pantene's detangler spray (which I'm not 100% sure is gluten free). Any suggestions would be appreciated! I'm willing to buy expensive brands as long as they work! :rolleyes:

I use Dessert Essence Organics shampoos as well as EO shampoos from time to time. EO is made with essential oils and can be found at places like Whole Foods.

I use Bubble & Bee Organic shampoo (You can find her website by typing in the name.) I got the set of two shampoos, a rinsing bottle, and a free lotion stick for $30. I have very long, thick, and easy to tangle hair and her products work wonders. My hair is soft, shiny, and easy to comb through. Bubble & Bee is 100% natural, organic, and gluten free. I find mixing her shampoo with baking soda works best if you have hard water (but I use it in soft and hard water just because.) The lemon scent is my favorite so far but the peppermint is to die for for the scent alone!

You can pick up her products if you live in Utah but otherwise you have to order them online but everything ships really fast, I usually get my stuff in two days.

I was disappointed at Aveda. There is hydrolyzed wheat protein in a lot of Aveda hair care products. They do have allergen information in the store to help find the wheat-free ones.

I like Aubrey Organics Chamomile shampoo. I've been using Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner most days, and Enjoy Reconstructing Conditioner once a week. Giovanni and Aubrey Organics are nice because they're paraben and SLS free.

I also like Garnier Fructis Mousse and would like to try their shampoo and conditioner (using Suave now).

Also in the Garnier line is their Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Moisturizer, which I like a lot better than what I used before. They also run a lot of coupons and their products are easy to find, which is important to me. I'll definitely be buying more of their products after having tried just these two.

Sylvia, you will love the shampoo and conditioner. It smells great. Walmart sells huge bottles and most of the time the Sunday paper has a coupon.

Paul Mitchell will send you a list of what products of theirs are gluten free. Their hair color is gluten free too! Joico has a list of gluten free products and you can search under KMS's website and it will give you a list. Dove is great about listing wheat/gluten products too.

Burt's Bees Dandruff shampoo (they don't make it anymore, but I only wash my hair about 2 times a week, so my stuff lasts and lasts); 365 fragrance-less shampoo from Whole Foods; Head and Shoulders; Nizoral (not 100% sure that is gluten-free); Dessert Essence like someone else said; Suave naturals conditioner (lavender).

From the hair salon - Pureology antifade complex rootlift. I called the number on the cannister and they said it was gluten-free.

I use Dove Products and they seem to work well for me. I believe most off them if not all are gluten free. They clearly label any allergens on their products.

Did you experience any issues with the Aveda products? I have been using them for years, and I love them. I was recently diagnosed with celiac and am trying to figure out if I need to find new hair product or not - I keep seeing conflicting information regarding the presence of gluten in hydrolyzed wheat protein...

I also like the Garnier shampoos and conditioners. Right now I am using Wen. The Pomegranate and Six-Thirteen are gluten-free (soy based), as are the seasonal ones. At this time, all other varieties are wheat based and unfortunately out for us.

I have dry, naturally curly, color treated hair and this is the most moisturizing shampoo (they call it cleansing conditioner) I have ever used. Expensive but worth it, in my opinion.

I've been happy with Neuma. I buy it in a salon and it's salon pricey, but works very well, and is an all vegan and gluten free line. They also list all product ingredients on their website.

The L'Oreal Everstrong line is gluten free per an email I received from their customer service a few months ago.

I loved my Aveda 'be curly' product line, but they all have hydrolized wheat protein. I have since moved on to Onesta (for shampoo/conditioner) and Beautiful Curl for styling products (leave-in conditioner and curl activating cream). I don't like they as much as Aveda, but they seem to work reasonable well, and are much less expensive. I get the Onesta on-line, and the Beautiful Curls at whole foods. Beautiful curls also has a shampoo, but I have not tried it yet...

Not all of the Aubrey line of products are gluten free so make sure to read the label. Same with Giovanni (most of there's is but not all).

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
