I only use shampoos and conditioners from Desert Essence Organics and EO (Essential Oil). Both are made with organic essential oils, and there is NO gluten to worry about. I get Dermatitis Herpetiformis on my face, so it's essential that my shampoos be absolutely gluten free.

I am waiting for a blood test to tell me if I have Celiac Disease. But I am pretty sure what the result is going to be. I already have two other auto immune disorders. I have had to use Dove products for body wash for years. I have been having problems with my hair falling out and my head hurting and I had no idea it could be caused by the products I was using on my hair not being gluten free. Are there any other brands I can use for hair stuff and how do you tell?

The Dove products are okay (for gluten). The celiac itself can cause you to be losing hair, and the resulting non- absorbing of nutrients because of damage to the lining of the gut can play havoc with skin and hair quality. Thyroid problems can also cause hair loss. Going gluten free can result in your hair coming back in thicker (mine did).

You can get a rash from ingredients other than gluten (or cross contaminated oats used in some brands), it is not always the gluten. I have to be really careful because I have super sensitive skin, and a sensitive pet with allergies who can react to licking my hand if I use the wrong lotion. This is why I tend to not use commercial hair conditioners, which can leave a residue. Instead I use water and pure apple cider vinegar for a detangling rinse, followed by a bit of pure coconut oil or shea butter.

People tell by reading the labels for the obvious, checking websites for updated information, (doing a search on "gluten free name of product") and contacting the manufacturer and then posting results .... some companies are good about calling out allergens on the labels.

I use Live Clean products including shampoo, conditioner, handsoap and moisturizers. Their website claims that all of their products are gluten free, despite nothing on the outward label. I have only seen them on the market where I live, Eastern Canada, for a couple of years. I was surprised to see that WalMart carried a whole slew of their products, but I originally bought their pump handsoap because it wasn't antimicrobial and was vegan. I found it at Sobeys.

I just bought Green Beaver shampoo and conditioner to try out (the cranberry smells so nice, which is a plus since I dislike or get nauseated by so many other smells) as it is labelled gluten free as well. This brand I could only find at my local organic store however. But it's canadian and also appears to create a bunch of other products including gluten free toothpaste.

I don't usually think of myself as having sensitive skin, but the most recent lip balm that I bought (gluten free of course) made the area around my lips break out, and the very natural deodorant I just bought to try out (smells nice) make my armpits itchy. The only ingredient I can fathom that I react to in that deodorant is the shea butter.

I've had dandruff issues since I was about 10, and I still have dandruff although I was hoping being gluten free and using gluten free shampoos would have resolved that. It's the really itchy kind that makes scabs that sorta stick to the scalp and feels much worse if my scalp is oily. It hasn't improved in 6 months. I have to occasionally use Nizoral (the only antidandruff shampoo to have ever had any noticeable effect to me) to keep it at bay. I haven't checked the gluten status of Nizoral.

    • Yeah someone else said a few weeks ago that there local manger was very antimate that NONE of their shakes with celiac safe....as pointed out if one shake has gluten.....they use the same shake mixing machine...so THEY ALL will have gluten at that facility.....
    • I just saw your profile says thalassemia. My doc blames part of the microcytic anemia on thalassemia trait even though all my thalassemia gene tests have come back negative (and I don't have the right ethnic background). In a way I am hoping it is a FODMAP (carbohydrate) sensitivity instead of a gluten allergy because at least with the FODMAP you just have to stay low FODMAP and don't have to worry about crumbs and gluten cross-contamination like with celiac. I will check back in in 6 months once I see whether there are specific foods I can't eat or if it really does come down to gluten  Thanks for your support!!
    • Good for you for trying to manage your health.  My only suggestion would be to find another doctor.  Obviously, he does not even follow standard recommendations for screening.  I would worry that he overlooks other things too.  It never hurts to get a second opinion.  Second opinions have saved my family from unwanted surgeries and incorrect treatment.   The IgA (Immunoglobulin A) Test, in the case of celiac disease testing,  is a control test.  If he had ordered it, you would have known if the results are valid or not.  Now you are left in diagnostic Limboland.  Again, my TTG was negative it has never been positive even in follow-up testing.   You can go gluten free for life.  My hubby did that 17 years ago some 12 years prior to my diagnosis (per the advice of his GP and my my allergist).  But he will be the first to tell you that I get way more support from family, friends and medical. I wish you well!  
    • Okay so I had a peanut butter milkshake from steak n shake last night. I'm nearly positive that every thing else I've had recently has been gluten free. I have been feeling like my stomach is acting up a bit lately, but after this milkshake it is so much more intense. I considered maybe I'm sensitive to dairy too, but in the last few days  I've had plenty of dairy that didn't make me react  like this. The steak n shake website didn't list any real specifics on ingredients for milkshakes. I read in other forums that some shakes use a malt mix or syrup ( which I didn't see mentioned on the site), but it is corn based. I called the my local steak n shake and the guy said he is "pretty sure" it's corn based.  I called the customer service line and they couldn't tell me if it was gluten free or not. I found ONE listing on a website that said all shakes were gluten free expect peanut butter and one other flavor. I know this seems like a lot for one shake, but I'm so tired of not knowing what makes me sick. Has anyone else had an experience with this or has anymore knowledge about steak and shakes products?
    • So my tTG-IgA result came back negative. Doc did not do the total IgA so I could be in the 2% false negative. However my ferritin continues to fall (at 25 now so getting borderline to need another iron infusion, 6 months ago it was 50) and reflux was keeping me up at night so after the blood test I went on a gluten free and low FODMAP diet. 6 days later my reflux is gone! I had no idea it could work that quickly. I still feel like there is a lump in my esophagus and have a bit of difficulty swallowing (think I still have irritation in that area) but no more acid and regurgitation! Also have not had a single episode of gas or urgency or days with 8 BMs.  It has only been 6 days so maybe I am just having a good spell but am going to continue gluten free and low FODMAP for a month and then see if there are any FODMAP foods I can eat (but not gluten unless my doc decides I should have a biopsy) (I miss pears and apples). I guess the real test is to see if my ferritin levels start to go up-testing again in 6 months. The diet is very restrictive but worth it if it gets rid of the reflux and other symptoms. BTW post-menopausal (and before that I had an IUD for 10 years TMI) so no periods to blame for chronic microcytic/hypochromic anemia. Doc says "that's normal for you, you just don't absorb iron very well".
