Does your employer or potential employer require a hair drug test? Are you worried too much hair will be collected and it will look like a weird haircut or even a bald spot?
We understand these worries as rumors abound about exactly how much hair is needed for a hair drug test, especially if you are bald or have a beautiful head of hair.
But, for best-in-class testing sites and professional collectors like CleanFleet, the opposite is true. At drug test collection sites like ours, the collector will only cut a small, specific amount of hair needed for the laboratory to perform the test.
Hair testing is the only drug testing method available that provides a 90-day drug use history window (urine drug testing has a 2-3 day window). When compared with urine testing, hair testing provides nearly twice the number of positives due to its longer detection time-frame. This makes hair testing an ideal solution for a number of drug testing programs, such as pre-employment testing.
So, how much hair is actually needed for a drug test?
Hair testing requires a small sample of hair, about 100-120 strands of hair (around 100 milligrams made up of the first 1-½ inches from the root), that is collected under direct supervision without any invasion of privacy. The hair is cut as close to the scalp as possible, so only the strands of hair above the scalp are tested and not the actual hair follicle.
Typically, hair is cut from the crown of the back of the head in a manner where it will not be as noticeable. If the donor has no head hair or hair shorter than ½ inch long, the collector can use hair “from top-down” that includes facial hair, chest, underarm, leg, etc.
According to Quest Laboratories, since the weight of hair varies by individual and because drug testing collectors do not have access to highly sensitive weighing scales, it is easier to visualize the required quantity in terms of the width or diameter of the hair specimen collected.
If the hair is more than four inches long, the laboratory requires approximately 120 strands, or the width of a pencil (or a normal cotton ball size if curly hair). If the collected hair is shorter than four inches, but longer than a ½ inch, additional strands of hair (in addition to the first 120 strands), may be required to complete testing.
The collector should always note the source of the hair sample on the hair collection envelope. If body hair is collected, the collector must make sure to collect as much hair as possible. Body hair is usually lighter in weight and more hair is needed for testing, according to Quest Laboratories.

How to pass a hair follicle test for coke
There are a couple of ways to pass a hair follicle drug test, the most popular and probably the most effective one called the Macujo method. I was in the same situation like you now, I had an upcoming drug test and I kept asking the same question, how to pass a hair follicle test for coke and THC.
So I have found a youtube video, the guy who make these „how to pass a drug test videos” called Michael Boron. In one of his video he mention he macujo method, how to do it step by step and how does his girlfriend pass her hair follicle drug test for coke.
I saw this comment on the youtube video:
„Has anyone ever tried to just superglue another person’s hair to their scalp? I’ve heard they will pull the follicle out but I had a test once before where I did the macujo method and failed me. They only used scissors to trim / cut my hair from the scalp and placed it in a foil.
I failed. Weed is the only thing that is closest to impossible to get out of your fat cells and hair. Anything else is easy peezy.
However I was thinking who has tried to just use another person’s hair? Just make a whole wig on your head or at the collic and then once dry I figured to use my shaver and make everything even and then go do the test.
If you are given an offer letter and have to take the test right then and there you don’t any any time for the Macujo process even if you are given 72 hours. Soo who has tried to just put someone else’s hair on their own head before?
I am not sure about THC, but as far as I know getting cocaine out of your hair is the same process as detoxing from THC or any other drug.
When you do the macujo method, its really important to wash your hair and SCALP at least 8-10 times, the more the better. Cocaine, THC and other drugs stays in your hair follicle for up to 3 months, so you need to do this cleansing process a carefully.
Its also very important to use the right ingredients, Aloe Rid detox shampoo is the main component of the macujo method, I know its expensive, but you can not cut corners here. If you want to pass a hair drug test, you will need to invest time and money as well.
There is another option for hair detox, and its called the Jerry G method, Honestly I wouldn’t recomend it because its not safe, nor shaving is safe, so keep this in mind. If you try to shave all of your hair, they will fail you immediately or tell you to come back a few days later with some hair on your body. If you want to pass a hair drug test for cocaine, then the Macujo method is the way to go.
Nexxus Aloe Rid old formula: The Key Ingredient
Keep that in mind guys that you will need to use Nexxus Aloe rid old formula for the Macujo method, its something what you can not miss from the method. There are other hair detox shampoos on the market, but non of them are as good as Aloe Rid.
You can buy Nexxus Aloe Rid detox shampoo in hair salons or order it from ebay or amazon, the only problem with these that they are not the old formula. There are tons of different Aloe rid versions, they all have different ingerdients, thats the problem. The newer batch is not as effective as the old one, its missing some key ingredients what makes Aloe Rid detox shampoo so good and effective.
The Macujo Method: Three things to remember
So once again, the most important parts of the macujo methods are:
Get the rid Old version of Nexxus Aloe Rid
Do not skip using Zydot Ultra clean shampoo (there are many websites skip this very important part of the method)
Use the Macujo method 7-10 times before taking the test. Its recommended to the the whole cleansing process twice every day. 7 times is the minimum what I would recommend. If you have one or two days only, you can still give it a try and wash your hair and scalp like 3-4x a day, but the resulsts are not guranteed.
