Let’s talk gluten free hairspray. One question you may have is: “should I use gluten free hairspray? Sounds kinda nutty to me.” lol, I won’t lie, it does sound extreme unless… some people react topically to gluten (ex: it really irritates my eyes), and some people live with DH (the topical form of Celiac Disease). For these 2 groups of people, gluten free hairspray is a must. That leads us to the 3rd group. What if you have gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease and have been told that you shouldn’t worry about topical products? To you, I’ll share this: I’d like to present another point of view, then you can take that information and make the decision you feel is best for you.
Every time we spray down our luscious locks, we inevitably inhale a little hairspray and whatever ingredients it’s made of. Ready for my dramatic analogy? None of us would spray a product with rat poison in it. Why? We wouldn’t want to accidentally ingest it and we know that could easily happen. For me, the same concept applies to gluten. It’s poison to us, so I steer clear. Every opportunity I have to eliminate the possibility of ingesting gluten, I snag it. For me, this is one more way to insure that I’m headed towards the healthiest version of myself. Plus, there are tons of gluten free hairsprays….Inhale away! (Just teasing)

This is the statement from Vo5: Our VO5 hairsprays do not contain gluten. Many of our personal care products do not directly contain wheat, rye, barley, oat or spelt. However, we cannot guarantee that they do not contain trace amounts of these ingredients from other products or other production lines within the same manufacturing facility.

The following Product lines either contain gluten, or say it may be present in their fragrances of their hairspray: Nexxus: (Most of their products contain wheat. The representative was very helpful though. She said if there is any derivative of gluten, it will be clearly listed on the bottle), Big Sexy, Aussie (Aussie can’t guarantee their hairsprays are gluten free due to the fragrances),Fat Hair and Herbal Essence (gluten is not directly added to Herbal Essence, , but could be present in the fragrances).
