If you need to pass a hair follicle drug test be prepared for the time and, or money commitment it will take to pass. There are a few different methods that people use to pass a follicle test. No method is guaranteed except abstinence from drugs. However, there are other methods used some have claimed produce drug-free strands.
Even when you abstain, certain drugs will stay in your hair for up to 90 days. Abstinence from drugs only produces guaranteed results if the duration of abstaining is more than 90 days. Test samples are typically taken from a section of hair that will produce results from the past 90 days. Certain drugs will stay in the hair longer than this, but the selection area is typically taken higher on the shaft.
If there is not sufficient time for three months of abstinence there are a few other methods. Getting rid of all your body hair is one solution. It is a quite obvious evasion tactic that will be noticed by the testing facility and your current or future employer. Typically a testing facility will request a urine sample if there is nobody or head hair present. For the most part, this is a fairly poor idea, but believe it or not, there are even worse methods.
An even worse idea than epilating is the dreaded home detoxification hair wash. One of the most common home washes involves creating a noxious concoction of vinegar, salicylic acne treatment, liquid detergent, and powdered detergent. You are to put this concoction on your hair in stages and then leave it on for up to an hour. Once you have rinsed this foul tincture out of your hair you are then to dye it. Some methods direct you to repeat the dying while others claim once is enough. This method seems reminiscent of epilating.
If these home methods are not suited for you there are some over-the-counter products that are made by various companies whose repute is rarely verifiable. There are several different brands all with the same claims of drug metabolite free locks. There are plenty of reviews from both sides of the argument, so the true efficacy is questionable. The best option seems to come from the pharmaceutical world. Try to procure the medical grade hair detoxification shampoo used to strip chemical contaminants left behind by medications. The over-the-counter products are typically expensive.
Obviously, the best way to pass a hair follicle drug test is to not do drugs, but there are other solutions.
