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. Read more

Will Perming your hair twice before a hair strand test for alcohol remove etg? I have had 2/3 binges over 3 months.

Will Perming your hair twice before a hair strand test for alcohol remove etg? I have had 2/3 binges over 3 months.

I wouldn't: "depend" upon it!!! The Perm may break the sulfhydryl bonds (Sulphur containing bonds holding the protein "together" ( (THUS the "rotten egg" smell when the Perm is happeninv) but there is no reason to expect the follicles will "loose" alcohol/drug deposits!
Best bet......stop the binges. Admit you have a problem. And get help! Read more

How long does alcohol stay in a hair folicle test?

Alcohol Detection: For a very long time. That is the simple answer. Of course, it depends on how much one has been drinking, how long the hair is; etc.

You probably should assume that if your hair has not been cut since your last drink it will be positive. Read more

Likely that two single pour scotches 1 month prior combined with a single pour 2 weeks prior to a hair follicle analysis test positive for alcohol?

Likely that two single pour scotches 1 month prior combined with a single pour 2 weeks prior to a hair follicle analysis test positive for alcohol?

Very unlikely: If I'm reading things correctly you are referring to three drinks in a months time. Hair testing is much more sensitive for chronic moderate-heavy drinkers. Even the best hair testing would have less than a 5% chance of picking up a (+) test with your quantity of drinking. Read more

How long does alcohol stay in hair? (Hair follicle test) And does frequency of use have an effect? I go out for a few drinks one day a week.

How long does alcohol stay in hair? (Hair follicle test) And does frequency of use have an effect? I go out for a few drinks one day a week.

The hair test: Can give a "look back" up to 3 months! HOWEVER it is only of use for agencies/employers with ZERO tolerance for alcohol use. IT'S TOO SENSITIVE!!!!!
If you drink AT ALL and a potential EMPLOYER is requiring a PRE-PLACEMENT hair test FORGET ABOUT THAT JOB untillyou have had NO alcohol for 90 days!!!!!

MY opinion Only
Hope it helps!

See below: Hair loss can be seen in liver disease, probably not the most common symptom though. This is common in iron deficiency and hypoactive thyroid, which I presume was done by your doctor. Read more

Can a hair follicle test for alcohol provide proof of complete abstinence?! I had a couple of beers and a little tequila 2 months ago.

Won't show: If you're in an abstinence-based program, this kind of "slip" isn't worth it, though. I'm glad you're doing well overall and wish you continued success. Read more
