not heard of any hair follicle test that used hair from the head or from any 'public' area. they say that hair is contaminated by environment. they go for crotch and 'dark area' hair. cutting/shaving your hair will not beat the test - they jerk out full hairs by the roots -- hence the name 'hair follicle' test. if you are shaved clean they simply will note a suspicion about why and then ask you to come back in a few weeks to a month.

shampoo will not help either. you cannot wash, treat or clean a hair follicle. you could take a bath in Nair and they will just wait until some hair grows back; and it will give them the same result anyway.

We had a guy apply for a high security job who was also a professional body builder...they remove ALL their hair...he could not supply a sample so he was denied the job.

If they are serious enough about the job to do the hair test, you will not be able to cheat past it.

Unfortunately, that excuse will not work. What they test for is not ON the hair, but IN the hair.

I realize this is a very old thread but I'll throw in my two cents worth as it is personal experience and deals with exactly the topic.

I was told a couple of days ahead that a hair test would be administered for employment for a new job. This was my first job after going back to college at an advanced age. I had stopped smoking every day while I was in college but was still a semi-regular smoker.

I called NORML on their pay-by-the-minute advice line (don't know if they still have that) and was given the name of a shampoo. This was shampoo that life guards use to leech the chlorine out of their hair.

First thing I did was go get a haircut-very short, maybe 2 inches long-the "Spike" look. Then I purchased the shampoo ( and I cannot remember the name of if for the life of me-sorry!) and after trimming my body hair short everywhere, I shampooed the crap out of every hair on my body like 12 times or more over 2 days.

They sent me to a contracted company and the tech removed some hair FROM MY HEAD and I passed. Simple as that. I guess it helped that I was not a daily smoker at that time.

Now the tech did tell me that if head hair wasn't available they would take it from wherever they could find it. So that part is probably still true. My story is from 1996 or so. But to anyone facing a hair test, it's not a slam dunk that you'll fail. By taking some measures you can at least give yourself a fighting chance.

And to the point about "they'll know if you come in with short hair on your head and all over your body". Most likely it'll be a different company than your employer giving the test. They won't know and most likely could give a crap what your hair looks like.

I just passed a follicle test. A user of many drugs I was scared af when I was told I needed to take one. They cut as closely to the scalp as possible they don’t pluck anything out. I used the macujo method

Uhm... I think someone got taken or confused. Never heard of any head hair being taken for a follicle test because head hair is naturally contaminated by the environment. And the name of the test is a "hair follicle" because it uses just that - the hair follicle; which is the root 'submerged bulb' at the bottom of the hair. There are all sort of fake and misleading 'hair follicle' tests which claim to be accurate using just regular head hair and do not even use a hair follicle!

Remember when Britney Spears shaved all the hair off her body? She did it to ->try<- to best a hair follicle test. It did not work.

I love how Britney Spears has been used to resurrect an almost 10 year old thread. Kudos.

My neighbor had to do that. He shaved his head a month before the test hoping he would get new, cleaner hair to grow... He got the job, but I'm not sure that marijuana was the employers primary concern. No real way to beat that test that I am aware of.

Hey Chad - buddy it was not me who resurrected this old dead thread! But she is about as well known now as this thread so it was in context (smile).

I got excited when I saw the SSSC in your name and stopped there to reminisce about the Super Sativa Seed Club. Now that you point it out, I should have expected it to be the first post by a new user. Seems to be the MO. But really, the Britney Spears reference was awesome. I instantly got the image of the famous b&w photo of her shaving her head. Classic!
