Hello! You would think that to achieve sleek, straight hair, it would be easy. It probably was, before you were diagnosed with Celiac Diesase/Gluten Intolerance. If you are like us, once we were diagnosed, we found that most of the hair products we used, contained wheat. Our hair was falling out, it was extremely fragile, and it lost it’s body and shine. It took us a long time after 1. ceasing gluten consumption and 2. using gluten free products on our hair. It was something that was devastating to us because we are “hair people.” Luckily though, we noticed enough improvement soon after applying gluten free hair products to hope that we could regain fullness and shine again.
One thing we were pretty sad about was the fact that we could no longer use our “swear by” hair products. We didn’t know what to use to achieve the same looks. Even though we list a small group of products in this post, we are still experimenting and trying out as many products as we can get our hands on to see which ones we like the best! If you are looking for achieving the above look, we broke it down for you! Below is a step by step guide on how to achieve smooth and sleek hair, using nothing but gluten free goodness!
Each Company’s policy on Gluten Free:
Bamboo Volumizing Gluten Free Shampoo: Certified gluten free! It’s on the bottle.
Scruples Root Lifter: Certified gluten free. It’s on the bottle!
Paul Mitchell Hold Me Tight: All products are bottled under pharmaceutical guidelines so there is no chance of cross contamination. Here is a list of their wheat free products.
Moroccan Oil Treatment: Cross contamination CAN occur, however this product does NOT contain gluten. Two of their products contain wheat germ. Here is a link to their hair product ingredient list & body line ingredient list.
Thick Hair: Try pinning up the sections you aren’t working on to make it easier, cleaner, and less likely to miss anything! You might need 2-3 pumps of oil.
Curly Hair: While you blow dry, try using your brush and blow dryer in place of a straightener. Use a brush that has tight tension and brush through your hair while the blow dryer is working through it. Start the flat iron just above where your curl begins. Also you might want to do a spritz of hairspray throughout your hair to maintain extra hold just in case your hair wants to curl up during the day.
Thin Hair: Only use about 1 pump of oil or else your hair may become greasy.
