Sticky, Gummy Residue from Using Oyin Juices?

Actually, I've only used the Greg Juice, and, it left a sticky, gummy residue on my hair, which left it feeling rather tacky.

Anyone else experience this, and, can someone give me a reason as to why this possibly occurred? I cleanse my hair every other day, and clarify about once a month. So, product build-up isn't really an issue with my hair.

    How much did you spray on? Did you saturate your hair? The Juices have a lot of glycerin, so too much can be sticky.

    I agree. I do the "spray'n rub" method.
    Spray a section, rub it in, spray another, get the rubbin' etc...
    Helps me out everytime

    Thank you, Ladies!

    I didn't saturate my hair, and, therefore, I didn't think I actually sprayed a lot. However, apparently, it was too much, given the sticky, tacky, gummy feeling. I will also try the spray and rub method. That had not occurred to me.

    I used those juices when I had kinky twists, and it can get sticky. I find that if I use too many glycerin containing products during this rainy, somewhat humid time we are having in NYC, my hair feels gummy as well. When I used the juices, I actually sprayed them on my hand, and fingercombed my hair.

    IDK but it must be something with that Greg Juice, I had the very same sticky tacky feeling with it...had to give it away. Had absolutely no problems with the Juices & Berries and the Frank Juice (which is my fave)....*shruggs shoulders*
