Cranberry Juice on hair??

I saw a segment on Dr. OZ that said to get shiny hair, use Cranberry juice (not oif you're a blond, you might get orange). So, I put some watered down Cranberry Juice in my spritz bottle. It made my hair extremely stickY What results have you guys had? Perhaps it was more intended for straights as oppossed to curlies.

Never heard of doing that. I would think spritzing it on might not be the best way to use it. Perhaps using it as a rinse might be better? My hair's too light to try that anyway.... no need to risk an orange tint!

Sounds like nonsense. Cranberries are a VERY tart fruit, so most cranberry juice drinks would be very high in wonder your hair was sticky.

I tend to keep food out of my hair.
I could see using it as a rinse (like vinegar to seal the cuticle or herbal rinses to add color). If I did want to use it I would be sure and buy the kind without added sugar.

Sounds like a very expensive alternative to vinegar as a hair rinse. Pure cranberry juice is really acidic. It's good for your kidneys, though.

Wash: DevaCare Low Poo
Detangle & Rinseout: Walgreens or Sally's Conditioning Balm (always)
Leave-in: DevaCare OneC (budget choice is GFTN)
Style: ReCoil & DevaCare Arc Angel (budget choices are HESMU or Got2BSpikedUp)

Yes, vinegar rinses make hair shiny because of the PH levels of vinegar. I'm sure a pure cranberry juice rinse would have the same effect, but at many times the cost.

I'd stick with a vinegar rinse — 1 part white or apple cider vinegar to 5 parts water is how I do it, after cleansing, before conditioning.
