Hair Follicle Testing

Altering the results of your hair follicle test is not as easy as you think.

So, you have decided to join the military and just found out they do drug testing. You are a little worried but know that you have ways to alter these tests so you pass them. Then, imagine your shock when you are told they are performing a hair follicle drug test. You didn’t even know there was such a thing. You should be afraid, very afraid.

Hair follicle testing was developed in response to the ease at which other drug testing could be altered. Hair grows slowly and drugs are retained in the hair follicle sometimes up to a year. Most tests cover a 90 day period of detection. Get the facts about hair follicle testing today by completing the online form in addition to receiving a free consultation.

You may be thinking, “Phew, all I have to do is shave my head. I am entering the military after all.” Not so fast. Hair follicle testing can be performed on body hair. That’s right, body hair. It can be performed on chest hair, back hair or underarm hair. Sure, you could wax it all off. Would it be worth the pain knowing that your military division will not allow you in until it all grows back? Probably not.

It’s not only the military choosing this non-invasive alternative to drug testing. Hair follicle testing is being required of social and family services, government agencies and school districts as well. That’s not all. Parents have been known to use this type of drug testing. We have heard stories of moms entering their kids rooms while they are sleeping and snipping off just enough hair that it’s not noticeable to their child. It is however, enough for the hair follicle testing.
