Hair Follicle Tests
If you are required to take a hair follicle test, the tips listed above are not going to work. Hair follicle tests are used to test for marijuana use. When you use marijuana, a chemical called THC passes through your bloodstream and stays in your system. Not only will it show up in your urine, but it will also show up in your hair. TCH can remain in your hair for 60 to 90 days. For everyone it is different. The length of time depends on how much marijuana you smoke, the strength of the strain that you have been smoking, the speed of your metabolism, your diet, and how much you sweat.
When you are given a hair follicle test, the technician will take a small sample of your hair. Typically, it takes about three clumps of hair that contain 50 strands. If you are completely bald, the tech will take samples for the hair in other parts of your body.
If you have used marijuana in the last 90 days, there is a good chance that you are going to fail the test.
Tip #1: Detox Your Body and Wait: If you are going to pass your drug test, you will need to flush all of the toxins from your body. When the toxins in your body are gone, it won’t be long before your hair shaft is clean as well. If you have prior notice of your test, you should start flushing your body and detoxing as soon as you find out about the test. After about three months, your hair should have grown at least a half inch. This will be enough to pass the test. Unfortunately, most people don’t get three months notice before a drug test. If you don’t have this amount of time, there are a few other methods you can try.
Tip #2: Use A Detoxification Shampoo: Several shampoos on the market will not only remove the metabolites from your hair, but it will also remove the old layer from your scalp. Best of all, these products won’t do any damage to your hair. When you use a detoxification shampoo, it will penetrate to the inner shaft of your hair, and all the toxins will be flushed out. You can find detoxification shampoos online that are designed to help you pass a hair follicle test. You can also use shampoos that contain aloe or just straight aloe, Nexxus, and Rid or any other type of lice shampoo.
