Hi...can using hair products containing fruit extracts as well as the alochols used in hair products cause a false positive for etg alcohol tests?

Hi...can using hair products containing fruit extracts as well as the alochols used in hair products cause a false positive for etg alcohol tests?

Unless U drink UR: Shampoo, you should not test positive for an alcohol test. That's when you're drinking alcoholic beverages, not using shampoo. So you are safe! Fruit extracts also don't cause a positive alcohol blood test too. Thank goodness! Or we'd have a huge public health crisis on our hands with personal care products. Safe to continue using your fruit extract shampoos.
