Gluten Free Hair Care

"Dear Angela,
I have celiacs. While my skin doesn't break out or burn when I use skin and hair care containing wheat, I do get an itchy scalp. My dermatologist told me that over time I may become more and more sensitive to skin care products containing gluten. I am having a harder time finding top notch hair products without any gluten. What do you recommend?
-Darla Charelston"

Well Darla, I am so glad you asked! There are a lot of gluten free products for your hair out there and I would love to share some of my favorites.

Shampoo and Conditioner:
All of the shampoos and conditioners from Sexy Hair are color safe, gluten free, paraben free, salt free and sulfate free. They have tons of options to choose from including purple shampoos for blondes, ones that add volume, anti-frizz smoothing formulas, hydration focused formulas, curly hair shampoos, and others! Here is link to their website where you can see all the products they offer, order online and find a salon near you that carries and sells the products. There are other gluten free lines out there too like AG and Surface.

Deep Conditioning Mask
Not to sound to one-note here, but the sexy hair smooth extender mask is seriously amazing. It leaves hair feeling hydrated and full without any sign of frizz and is (just like the shampoos and conditioners) free of parabens, gluten, salt and sulfates. Check it out here.

Leave in Conditioner
I have tried and love this product from Juice Organics. I have not tried their full line, but Juice Organics is a sister company to Juice Beauty (an all natural skin care line that I love), and Juice Organics is all gluten free! This leave in conditioner rings in it at only $13 as well! You can learn more and buy it here!

Curl Cream
Not only is this a great gluten free curl cream, but it is also one of my favorite curl creams on the market as a whole! I highly recommend this product to anyone who has curly hair. It is best for full hair that you are working to define and control the curls, as well as for people with medium textures who have a little curl that they are trying to to bring out! Click here to learn more about the Curl Defining Styling Cream from Living Proof. 

HairsprayI have three recommendations for gluten free hairsprays. For a great standard hairspray that is not aersol I like the Paul Mitchell Freeze and Shine Spray, because it dries fast, so you don't get that plastic-look. If you prefer an aerosol hairspray with a little added shine factor I prefer TIGI Bed Head Headrush. Then you have the award winning Sebastian Shaper Plus which is also a massive fan favorite all over the country and is gluten free.

Volume Builders
Surface Haircare is supposed to be a 100% gluten free line, and this texture powder is incredible! click here to see if you can find a supplier near you! As for a spray I love the Sebastian (another gluten free brand) and their Volupt Spray (pictured on the right).

Because Sebastian is a gluten free brand they are on this list A LOT. but they make amazing products! For a lightweight mousse foam, try Whipped Creme, and for a more high hold traditional mousse try Mousse Forte.

  1. Excellent read. I just passed this onto a friend who was doing a little research on that. He just bought me lunch as I found it for him! So let me rephrase: Thanx for lunch! Cocochoco keratin treatment
