Hair Drug Test
It used to be that the only way someone could test for drug use was through urine or blood. Now days, hair drug tests are available to both employers and the general public. This is a much less invasive way of doing drug testing and provides a much more accurate result. Companies as well as parents may ask you to take this test to see if you are using illegal street drugs.
A hair drug test is the most accurate with the longest detection time, telling someone if you have used illegal drugs within the past 90 days. Companies may use it to provide a more accurate reading of employees. Parents like hair drug tests because it can be performed without their children’s knowledge.
Any illegal drug usage in the past three months can be detected by obtaining a one-inch strand of hair. Shaving your head will not avoid a hair drug test as hair on other parts of your body can be used for testing. A hair drug test will look for traces of marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, opiates, methamphetamine, and PCP
If you know you will be asked to take a hair drug test and are afraid of a positive result, you can try a hair follicle shampoo that can be purchase online. This shampoo promises to remove all residues and toxins of drug use from your hair within 10 minutes. While some question the effectiveness of this shampoo, many companies that sell it state they have a 99% success rate of the shampoo. The shampoo only lasts 8 hours, so if you are taking a test, you will want to shampoo your hair the morning of the test. Once the hair is cut however, it remains toxin free forever.
If you are asked to take a hair drug test, remember that it can be for your own good. If you are abusing illegal drugs, testing might help you get the support and help you need.
