Default Protein treatment that's wheat free?

Anyone know of any?

I took wheat out of my routine (eliminating nearly ALL of my formerly loved products) and my tangles are not as intense, but still fall-out.

Hope it calms down soon. I'm using SheaMoisture products now and low-pooing and using KC (custard) and smoothing lotion to comb through knots, but I think I need a protein treatment or LI here and there....

Any ideas for ones that are wheat-free/gluten free?

Thanks

Oh, I was also eliminating keratin and yeast. So I'm not sure!

Are you totally wheat free?

I was for awhile. Not so much now, but I definitely limit its use. Keratin is not wheat based, a lot of the time they get it from Sheeps wool. Yeast never bothered me at all, so I never eliminated it.

Well it's hard to know if yeast does since it's not in any products alone (usually with wheat).

Why did you go wheat free? What were your symptoms?

My hair has been less tangly but still a little weird and falling out.

I'll try introducing repair me back - That's good to know about keratin (though I think someone at CJ said it's a "vegetable source so may contain wheat") - IDK.

Also, I had to get rid of my redken hair coloring and processing solution and glaze! Any ideas for hair color/glaze that I can use????

I have family members with Celiac and was tested but it came out negative. I think I'm still gluten sensitive though.

One of Paul Mitchell's color lines is gluten free; I don't remember if it's The Color (permanent but can be used as a demi too) or PM Shines (similar to Redken Shades EQ). You could always email them to find out. I use PM color and have no issues with it. Redken BURNS LIKE HECK...ESPECIALLY Shades.

I've been using Shades forever! But can't anymore. Great! Will try PM!
