Many customers call and ask "can I beat a hair follicle drug test" or "how do I beat hair follicle drug tests" or "how do I pass hair follicle tests"? For the most part all the shampoos that are sold to beat a hair drug test are not effective. The shampoos work on the outside of the hair whereas the drug is on the inside of the hair. Once the lab gets the hair specimen, they run the hair through a chemical wash that washes all external contaminates off.

There are no effective shampoos, home remedies or natural ways to pass a hair test. Once the drug is deposited in the hair follicle it is there until the hair is cut. So, in short, there is no best way to pass a hair drug test. The shampoos and home remedies used to pass a hair test are only making the companies that sell them huge profits. Instead of trying to figure out a way to beat a hair follicle drug test you would be better off to see how high a level of drug is in the hair. It is possible that you didn't do that much of the drug in question so it might not show up on a hair drug test. We can do an anonymous hair follicle test with no name or social security number necessary. All tests come with a one page report. Google © Copyright Expomed 1995-2020

Why Hair Test?

The advantage to implementing hair follicle testing for your pre-employment drug screening as opposed to traditional ways of testing is simple. A substance abuser may abstain from using drugs for 3 days to 2 weeks prior to applying for a job. With traditional testing, there is a good chance that the applicant will test negative and then start using again once they are hired in. There is also the chance of adulterating the specimen. 

Companies that implement hair testing can be relieved to know that this is not possible with hair testing. Abstaining or adulterating the specimen cannot beat hair tests. It just isn't possible. 

Companies typically see a cost savings right up front due to the donors' awareness that they cannot beat the hair test. Therefore, they won't even apply, saving you the cost of the test and additional costs of the hiring process. Those coupled with the fact that abusers cost companies thousands of dollars per year and are a great liability to themselves, your company and other co-workers.

How do you help to solve the problem? Start hair testing. Stop them before they even step foot in your business.

How far back can a hair follicle drug test detect drugs?
For every half inch (.5 inch) sample of hair you would get a 30 day history of substance use. For instance we usually require a 1.5 inch sample be sent. This would give you a 90 day history of substance use. The sample is measured from the root end out to a length of 1.5 inch. If you needed a 6 month history of substance use you would need to submit a 3 inch sample.
