  1. Another update: they stopped selling it labeled gluten free. They have also removed the hydrolized wheat protein. After several complaints and several weeks, they sent me a bottle of shampoo and a bottle of conditioner with the new formula and none of the ingredients are gluten-y that I can recognize.
  2. Update: I have tried calling the company several times and have emailed twice. I have yet to talk to a person on the phone and no one has emailed me back. I did a little research and they were are already involved with a class action lawsuit about being labeled as salt free and one of the first ingredients is sodium chloride. I am done with this shampoo because this whole company seems a little shady now!
  3. It's so crazy though because it's labeled gluten free! It makes me so angry! I reached out to the company and didn't get a response. To be safe I'm going to chuck it I think but it was expensive and it's the only shampoo that make my curls dry nice. Looks like I've got some research to do!!
  4. I am recently diagnosed with Celiac and I have used the Big Sexy Curly shampoo and conditioner for the last three years. I was happy that it had "gluten free" in big bold letters on the front... only to turn it over and see "hydrolyzed wheat protein" in the ingredients! The FAQ on the website says: "Sexy Hair’s products may contain Ethyltrimonim Chloride Methacrylate/Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein Copolymer. During the manufacturing process, the wheat starch is converted to wheat protein, which results in the removal of the gluten. All formulas have been tested to show less than detectable levels of gluten." Can anyone explain this to me? Is this akin to Omission once being labeled as gluten free beer and now it has to be labeled "crafted to remove gluten" and turns out it isn't safe for Celiacs?
