What is a Hair follicle drug test?
Okay, so we all are somehow or the other acquainted with urine and saliva drug tests to find out the amount of THC in the body. Hair follicle drug test is another such test which enables the tester to find out traces of illegal substances in your body. Well, now you may be scratching your head and thinking as to how a hair follicle renders such useful information. Basically, hair follicle drug testing is a procedure which is being used since years for testing the consumption of drugs. The best part of this kind of testing is that it can detect the consumption of drugs such as marijuana, MDMA, cocaine, amphetamine, etc. which may have been taken 1-2 months ago. Thus it is very difficult to fool the tester who is taking the test. It is not like urine test, where you can simply sneak in with your friend’s pee and submit that for testing. In this case, a strand of hair containing 30-50 hairs is taken as a sample and traces of drug metabolits are found in the sample. Generally it is done by a process of ultrasensitive gas chromatograph.
Shampoo for hair sample drug test:
Do you have your hair follicle drug test within a few days and have taken illegal substances a few days ago? If that’s the case, you are sure to fall prey as this test gives a positive drug result if you have taken drugs even a month ago. Trying out a drug test cleanser is the best way to avert this. Along with that, you must use a shampoo which clears out all traces of drug metabolits from the hair follicles, leaving your hair free of any kind of illegal substances. Generally these shampoos are made of herbal detox agents which keep you clean from these drug residue till 8 hours of application. Thus remember to use them 2-3 hours before you go for the test. Also, these drug toxins remain in your hair as long as you don’t cut your hair off. So it is just a temporary solution for your hair follicle test. Use the shampoo and cleanser and come out clean from the labs. That’s all you need to do before you enter the lab.
