Dear Curly Suzy: I am an African-American female with Type 3/4 (3 in the front and 4) in the back. I have developed a wheat/gluten allergy recently (found this out when I broke out in hives from Miss Jessie's Stretching Silkening Creme. Can you suggest shampoos, conditioners and finishing cremes to take away the frizz? I wish I could still use Miss Jessie's (been buying for 6 years) but my allergy will no longer allow it.

Dear Natalie: I am sorry that you have to switch from a product that you have been using for so long. I hope I can help with some new ideas for wheat- and gluten-free hair products.

Wheat- and gluten-free cleansers

Wheat- and gluten-free conditioners

Wheat- and gluten-free leave-in conditioners

Wheat- and gluten-free finishing cremes

I hope these or some of these look good to you. Please email me if you have any questions about this.

Piggyhound, I don't know if you'll get this response since I see you commented a while back. Thought I'd answer just in case you or someone else is still interested. I've been dealing with the same issue for about 6 years now. I just recently found a protein shampoo and conditioner that I love. It's a little pricey but I've been using it for about 4-5 months now and just love it. It's called "Trinity" and is made by a company called "Surface." They tout the entire line as being gluten free, sulphate free, paraben free, and vegan. I've tried a few of their other products. Personally liked the moisturizing conditioner but not the moisturizing shampoo. Didn't care much for their hairsprays. Anyway, just thought I'd pass that on. I know re-vamping your hair routine to suit allergies is no fun. Good luck!
I use Max Green Alchemy Scalp Rescue Shampoo, which is gluten free. It is more difficult to find gluten free conditioners that work. I use the Alba leave-in conditioner after shampoo conditioning and that works well. I also like Honey Girl Organics Hair Oil. I hope more and more companies will go gluten free!
Hi there Curly Suzy! when will the online store have heat therapy wraps again? Thank you in advance. CoCo
Thank you so much for the list of wheat-free products. I have celiac disease and have been dealing with small bumps on my neck and shoulders that cleared up once I stopped using products with wheat proteins in them. However, my hair LOVES protein and I need to find a protein treatment that has no wheat proteins in it. Can you suggest anything?
