    Default Orange juice rinse?

    I'm very anxious to try a lemon juice rinse in my hair, but I don't have any lemons on hand and I happen to have an orange tree in my yard which is loaded with oranges. I'm thinking of trying a rinse with the orange juice instead of lemons. I looked it up on the web and saw a few mentions of orange juice being great for skin and hair. Anyone tried it?

    I'll be watching this thread with hope! I love using orange juice in my homemade cleaners and need to know if it would be good for my hair! I love oranges.

    I'm going to try it this afternoon, I'll let you know what happens. I figure one time can't kill me (or my hair, rather!)

    I haven't tried it but I believe I've read of orange juice being used on hair before. Good luck, I'll be interested in your results.

    I use sweet orange EO in some of my hair recipes as a added scent.That would be a great idea,to use fresh oranges as a rinse.Let us know how it goes if you do decide to do it.Oh-and lucky you for having a orange tree!! :P

    eta-have you tried to search the forums for Orange Juice? I just did for baby food and came up with the answer I needed.

    I would think it would not be totally different from lemon juice. Some people's hair does terrible with lemon juice (mine included), some does great. If anything orange I believe contains more natural sugar than lemon, so it might need more rinsing.

    I did try searching the forums and didn't come up with anything except a lot of orange eo's posts! And yeah, I am lucky with this orange tree, it is so loaded with oranges that we have oranges most of the year!

    I'm just wandering how you would do this....because in my mind i'm thinking sticky residue and wasps....but i'd love to know how it turns out.

    I tried it ages ago when all the citric acid stuff was going around. I didn't feel that it did anything really.

    In India they use Orange powder on their skin and hair, but it's different than just juice--it's powdered orange peel. I have a box, but have yet to try it.

    Well, I was planning on squeezing and straining a couple of oranges, adding water and rinsing with it. Would do a final water rinse though, I have those same thoughts of sticky sweet hair.
