Drug testing has also become more modern and more accurate with the emergence of the hair follicle examinations. I’m not saying that the urine tests weren’t accurate, though. I’m just saying that there is an importance difference between these two and that difference could mean that you will fail the test no matter how hard you try to detox.
To make things clearer, here’s how the hair follicle test works: https://www.healthline.com/health/hair-follicle-drug-test
Let me quickly explain this difference to you. When someone is checking urine for drugs, they can only go as far as checking whether the person has used any drugs in the last few days. Hair follicles, on the other hand, detect habitual users, which means that your usual detox tricks won’t be able to save you at all.
What does this mean for you? I could tell you that passing this test if you are a regular user is next to impossible and I definitely wouldn’t be lying to you in any way. On the other hand, people wouldn’t be people if they didn’t try to look for ways to “cheat the system” in a way, and that’s exactly what happened here as well.
People have worked hard to crack the code for passing the hair follicle test and that has led to the development of several different techniques. As you will see, some of those are more extreme than the others, but if you are in danger of losing your job, even the most extreme measures might not seem that bad. It’s time to read more about those techniques and get to know them.
Stay Clear Of Drugs For 90 Days
I am not sure if you would count this one in the extreme measures or not, but it can definitely get tricky and here’s why. Even being close to people who are smoking pot for example without taking even a puff yourself can show you positive for drugs on the hair follicle test. Staying clear of drugs for 90 days means that you need to stay clear of all your friends who use too.
It’s important to understand that, if you are not a regular user, this method is definitely unnecessary. In other words, if you just ended up smoking pot the night before your hair follicle test after a long, long time, then you have nothing to worry about. If you are a regular user, however, then this extreme measure might be your best shot, provided that you have those 90 days on your hands.
Correct Your Diet And Add Supplements To The Mix
In case you don’t have 90 days but, say, only a couple of weeks, it’s time to resort to body detox. You can speed up the detox process by starting to eat healthy and even adding some vitamin supplements to your diet. It should go without saying that you shouldn’t use any drugs whatsoever during the detoxification process.
This method is not that extreme, so it isn’t that difficult to do. However, it does come with a disadvantage. Even when you do everything right and completely detox, there is no guarantee that drugs won’t show on the test. You will just have to take your chances.
Use Detox Shampoos
When you want to pass a hair follicle drug test, but you only have a week before it is done, you should thing about investing in professional detox shampoos. These have proved to be highly effective, although, once again, it all depends on the type and the amount of drugs, so you cannot be 100% sure that the shampoos will work.
If you want to give a shampoo a try, you need to remember that it takes around 15 to 20 washes for the drugs to leave your hair. You should use it a couple of times a day and according to the instructions on the label. When you do everything right, you have high chances of passing the test.
Shave Your Head
This is the most extreme measure you can think of, but if you have no time on your hands and you are desperate, you might want to give it a try. In my opinion, if you shave your head right before the examination, it immediately makes you look guilty. It might, though, help you save your job.
