What is a hair follicle test?
A hair follicle drug test is designed to detect heavy long-term drug users. Sure most employers aren’t sreening for LSD, shrooms, mescaline, peyote or hydrocodone drugs like oxycodone, vicodin, AN627 or Watson 3202. And unless you play pro football or run Olympic track drug testers aren’t looking for anabolic steroids—they’re looking for Marijuana. Actually they’re looking for the metabolites your body makes when you smoke weed.
How long does weed stay in your hair? THC traces tend to appear about 5 days after you smoke weed. They remain in your hair until you cut it. What’s worse is that a hair follicle test can be performed using hair from anywhere on your body—even pubes.
You could of course shave your head and your entire body including your eyebrows. Or you could try these two home remedies; the Jerry G method or the Macujo/Growman method. Like using a hair follicle detox shampoo, these home treatments will strip THC metabolites from your hair and help you pass a hair drug test. Both processes rely on harsh chemicals, but many people have claimed they work including this dude, this dude, this dude and this dude. However they’re hard on your hair and slightly dangerous. So be careful.
One thing you should consider, however, is purchasing a home hair follicle drug test kits like Hair Confirm, or Psychemedics PDT90. That way you can treat your hair using one of these two methods and test to see if it worked. If it didn’t? Try washing your hair a few more times then test it again. Testing yourself before you actually get a hair drug test is the only way to really know if you’ll pass. Why leave shit up to chance?
The first home detox remedy is called the Jerry G method. In 2008 “Jerry_G” posted a thread on Cannabis.com saying a new bleach-and-clean method he tried was “90% effective” at beating the hair follicle drug test. He says it works because bleaching opens the hair cuticles making the metabolites easier to clean. Many people have backed Jerry’s claim that this is one of – if not the – most effective way to strip THC metabolites out of your hair. The process is simple—bleach and re-dye your hair, twice. However repetitive bleaching destroys your hair. And unfortunately many stoners have to cut their hair after this procedure.
What you will need:
- SynergyDetox Toxin Wash shampoo
- Zydot Ultra Clean Shampoo
- Peroxide bleach
- Hair dye (try to match your hair color)
- Baking Soda
What you will need to do:
- Stop smoking weed then bleach your hair following the directions on the package
- Dye your hair back to it’s original color following the directions on the package
- Don’t smoke weed for ten days and repeat. If you have little or no time do this as close to the test date as possible
- On the day of the test make a thick paste with baking soda paste and water and massage it into your hair
- Following the directions on the box treat your hair with the SynergyDetox Toxin Wash shampoo followed by a full Zydot Shampoo treatment.
- Perform a hair follicle test on yourself using Hair Confirm, or Psychemedics PDT90 and repeat the five steps above if needed.
Pass a hair drug test method 2
The second method is called the Macujo/Growman procedure. It’s a little less harsh on your hair, it’ll cost you a bit more becausae it uses more expensive products. But it’s also considered the most effective way to beat a hair follicle test The Macujo procedure was first posted on Marijuana.com in the early 2000s. However in ‘07 a Grasscity.com user named Growman talked about his success using the Macujo method and it quickly gained a ton popularity. Apparently the Macujo/Growman method is the most frequently discussed THC home remedy on forums and social networks like Reddit/trees.
The Macujo process deep-cleans your hair using Nexus Aloe Rid shampoo (the old formula that uses propylene glycol); acetic acid (vinegar); salicylic acid shampoo; and laundry detergent. The method works for many people but it’s obviously hard on your hair and may chemically irritate your scalp.
What you will need:
- Nexus Aloe Rid shampoo
- Salicylic Acid Shampoo
- Tide Liquid Laundry Detergent
- White Distilled Vinegar
- Shower Caps (at least a dozen, dude)
- Swim Goggles (protect them peepers, man)
What you will need to do:
Follow the cleaning procedure detailed below at least 5 times over the 3 days prior to your hair drug test. Choose a deep sink where you can rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water.
- Stop smoking weed
- Put on your goggles and wet your hair thoroughly with warm water
- Hold your breath and massage the vinegar it into your hair all the way down to the scalp
- Massage the salicylic acid shampoointo your hair then wipe and clean all exposed skin—especially your ears, eyebrows and forehead
- Put on a shower cap and rock that shit for 30 minutes.
- Remove the shower cap and rinse your hair thoroughly
- Wash your hair twice with the Nexus Aloe Rid shampoo making sure to rinse thoroughly in between
- Massage a very small amount of Tide into your hair and rinse using lots of warm water to rinse until your shit’s squeaky clean
This procedure is hard on your hair and will remove all essential oils. You may want to follow with a conditioner but wait at least an hour.
