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 ingest it accidentally, 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 ensure that I’m headed towards the healthiest version of myself. Plus, there are tons of gluten-free hairsprays….Inhale away! (Just teasing).
Here is the list of gluten-free hairsprays
CHI Enviro 54 Firm Hold Hair Spray: According to the rep, most of the Chi hairsprays are gluten-free. Please be advised the whole line is not gluten-free, but many of the hairsprays are. So double-check the ingredients, and when in doubt, call their customer service to double-check.

So just double-check your label. Also, they ask us to keep an eye out for an ingredient called cetyl alcohol, which, if present, could be derived.
Alberto Vo5 Hairspray: 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.
