How to Pass a Hair Follicle Drug Test

By Bryan R.

There are many reasons why you may be asked to undergo a drug test: you may be joining a new company, and it is common for employers to check new – and existing – employees for drug use. You might be entering a school or college that requires drug testing, or – and this is where the hair follicle test is most likely to be used – you may be due up in court.

Why a hair follicle test? There are benefits to using the hair drug test that others – such as urine test and blood test – do not provide; the main benefit is that the signs of drug use can remain in the hair follicles for as long as 90 days, which is far longer than any other type of test.

Before we tell you how to pass a hair follicle drug test, let’s consider how it’s done, and what it can detect.

What is the Hair Follicle Drug Test?

The test is simple and painless. A medical professional will take a sample of your hair, and it will be tested in a particular way in a laboratory. This is one reason why it is not used for instant results, as it can take some time for the results to come through.

The hair follicle test can detect many types of drugs that are used recreationally, as well as some that are prescribed. It is a thorough test, and one that can even determine how much of a particular drug you have been using.

There are some products that can confuse the test – poppy seeds, for example, may show up as opiates, and some nasal sprays can also sway the results – but in general, it is an accurate and specialised test that will give results as required.

But, you came here to learn how to pass it – so let’s have a look at the best ways to do so.

Passing the Test

The best way to pass a drugs test – any drugs test, not just the hair follicle test – is not to take drugs. The problem with this option is that you are already reading our article, so the chances are you do use drugs for your pleasure. So, the next option is to try one of the many ideas that your friends – and the internet – swear will get you through the test, but believe us when we tell you they will not work.

That leaves us with a couple of ways to pass the hair follicle test that will actually do the job. The first is to stay clean for 100 days and a bit more, and let the drugs clear from your system. This is an option if you have the time and know the test is coming up, and it will help if you also have your hair trimmed!

The second option, and by far the best one, is to use one of the many products you can buy that claim to perform a full detox on your hair. Beware, however, that some do not do a very good job – read this great article at for information and advice on which products do work, such as Ultra Clean Shampoo. They also have advice on a kit you can purchase that allows you to check if the shampoo has worked, and it’s one used in official capacities, so is a must-have for added peace of mind.

The hair follicle test is one that will be used in some cases, but it can be passed if you follow our advice, so check out that information and make sure you are fit to go!
