Are you worried that you are going to fail an upcoming hair drug test? You are in the right place. In this article, I will share useful information on how to possibly beat a hair drug test.
Employers now prefer hair drug tests over urine tests
For good reasons, employers and government agencies now prefer hair drug test over the normal urine or blood drug tests. The main reason is the fact that hair keeps a long history of drug use compared to blood or urine. Another reason for the trend toward hair drug tests is the fact that they are much harder to cheat. Remember, a hair sample is taken in full view. So, there is no window to switch your sample with a clean one.
Why hair contains evidence of your drug use
Hair needs blood to grow. Traces of drugs are deposited on the hair shaft through the hair follicle. Note that, your hair grows only 2 inches every 90 days. Therefore, a hair drug test can detect the use of a drug more than three months before testing, depending on the length of your hair.
A hair drug test detects traces of drugs such as marijuana, nicotine, cocaine, alcohol, opiates, codeine, LSD, and many more. Traces of these drugs degrade with time. But, unfortunately for pot users, THC traces will remain in your hair until you shave.
The Best Way To Pass A Hair Follicle Drug Test
In my experience, the easiest way to cheat a hair drug test is to use detox shampoo. For a detox shampoo to work, it has to eliminate drug traces from the hair follicle. Unfortunately, most detox shampoos in the market are not able to effectively clean the hair follicles of all drug traces.
Best Detox Shampoos For Hair Tests:
The following is a list of 3 of the best detox shampoos. My personal favorite is at the top of the list.
- Aloe Toxin Rid Shampoo (Old Formula) – (The Most Reliable Option)
Aloe Toxin Rid shampoo is by far the most effective detox shampoo to pass a drug test. I have used for more than two years, and I am living testimony that it works.
The best time to start using this shampoo is immediately you get information about an upcoming drug test. However, if you are a regular drug user, especially if you use marijuana, you should use this shampoo regularly.
I have found that it is effective if you use it about 15 times before the drug test. Use a considerable amount of the shampoo and let it stay in your hair for about 12 minutes.
Please note that the new formula Aloe Rid shampoo does not produce good results. Unfortunately, the manufacturer no longer produces the old formula. The shampoo is in short supply, and it is quite expensive. Currently, the old formula is only available on Test Clear.
Clear Choice Hair Follicle Shampoo
According to the manufacturer, this product is 99.9% effective. The manufacturer is so confident in the product that it offers a 200% money-back guarantee.
This shampoo penetrates the outer layer of your hair known as the hair cuticle, to reach the inner layer. The inner layer, also known as the cortex, contains drug traces. The ingredients of the shampoo remove drug traces from the hair shaft and cortex.
Clear Choice Hair Follicle Shampoo is effective when used 8 hours before the drug test.
- Zydot Ultra Clean Shampoo
Zydot Ultra Clean Shampoo is also a detox shampoo. The product comes with a shampoo, a purifier, and a conditioner. The whole package has the chemicals to open up the cuticle and remove the toxins, and the condition your hair.
According to the manufacturer, the product is effective for only 24 hours. They support that claim by offering a 100% money back guarantee.
But, according to users, it does not work effectively on its own. Most people use it in combination with Jerry G and Growman D-I-Y detox methods. Ideally, you use these methods on the days before the test and use this shampoo on the morning of the test.
Those are the best detox shampoos in the market. Aloe Toxin Rid shampoo is the best, but it is costly. Clear Choice Hair Follicle Shampoo is your next best choice, and it works on its own.
The bottom line is that detox shampoos are the best way to beat hair drug test if you do not have 110 days to abstain or if you just cannot abstain for such a long period.
How to beat a hair drug test other ways
Like most drug users, that was the first question I asked when I first heard about the hair drug test. Most labs claim that the test is 99% accurate. That figure should not discourage you. Like any test, the hair drug test has flaws, and people have found ways around it.
- Abstain From drugs For 110 Days
Avoid drugs for 110 days before your next drug test. There is science behind the 110. It takes about ten days for traces of drugs in your drugs to drop and about 100 days to grow about 2 inches of clean hair from the scalp.
- Shave Your Hair
If there is no hair there will be no test, right? But, it is not that simple. This method will only work if you are willing to shave your entire body – not just your head. Shave your body about seven days before the test as it takes about a week for new hair to get above the skin line.
But there is a risk with this approach. Your employer might fail you as it will seem obvious that you are trying to beat the test.
- D-I-Y Detox
You can clean your hair at home using locally available products. Regular pot users abide by two hair detox method; Growman and Jerry G. The former uses shampoo, salicylic acid, and vinegar while the Jerry G method uses bleach.
According to doctors, the methods do not work. But, according to drug users they work. I have not used these methods before. However, according to most of my friends, you have to supplement these methods using detox shampoos and detox body pills and drinks.
