I have celiac and I feel like my reactions are weird and different from the rest of my family. I don’t get stomach aches, I get canker sores and brain fog. My skin gets irritated. When I was 16 I got bald spots and I found out that the shampoo I used had wheat in it. Stopped using the shampoo and my hair grew back.
I used my fiance’s shampoo recently from Walgreens that looked okay. But I was horrified to find a bald spot in my hair. The shampoo looked okay, but after digging around I found out that some of the fancy chemicals in the shampoo are derived from, you guessed it, wheat.
I stopped using the shampoo and the hair is growing back. Which is good, but I hate that it happened in the first place.
It’s just frustrating and I wanted to remind people that if they’re having troubles and they’re not sure what is causing it, maybe check your shower stuff. Wheat is a super common ingredient in all those things.
