How to Past a Hair Drug Test

Updated on February 12, 2010

If you are looking at this page then there is a pretty good chance you need to pass a drug test. I was once in your same situation and I can tell you, it’s very stressful. There are many types of drug test of there:

·         Urine

·         Hair

·         Blood

·         Saliva

·         Perspiration

 I know that drugs are illegal and everyone should stay away from them. But the reality is it’s impossible to stay away from all drugs out there. Drugs are everywhere you go even if you think they aren’t. I went to a youth group one time and had a wonderful time. Afterward this young man walked up to me and asked if I wanted to smoke a joint with him? Really, right after church! Like I said drugs are everywhere. This article is going to be about Marijuana and how to pass the test.

        This is going to be focused on passing a Hair Test. From all my research that I’ve done in the last six month or so, blood and perspiration are two of the hardest to pass, followed by the hair test.  Saliva and urine are two of the easiest to pass so I really wanted to focus on the hair test.

        Many people are to believe that the hair test is impossible to pass but I know for myself that it is beatable! I use to smoke all day every day. Three bowls at a time, then a bong hit followed by a blunt on the way to work. I worked at McDonalds so there was nothing to serious I had to do. The point in telling you this is because the amount of weed you smoke does depend on what will work for you. There are some web sites out there that are dedicated about passing drug test. Most are just to get your money. The shampoos and conditioners are for the most part useless. This brings me to the first method of passing a hair drug test.

·         Toxic wash shampoo/ bio wash shampoo

This product is proven to work! Not only for the causal marijuana smoker but has let heroin user pass test. This is not the most expensive thing out there to buy but it is the most expenses thing out there that works. It will run you about $80 for four ounces. The bottle says to use it all but honestly what is the point in putting all of it in your hair? Most of it will fall on the ground. I would suggest only using as much as you would to normally wash your hair, lather it up real nice. Take as many showers as you need to use the whole bottle. It’s just like an antibiotic, you have to finish it or it won’t be affective. Depending on how much you use this might be enough.  Smoking two times a week or less, you are in the clear. If you smoke more like I did then this will help but won’t be enough. Don’t worry there is hope for all! Just continue on to the method of bleaching.

·         Bleaching kit.

This is not nearly as costly in money but many more costly to your body. If you were like me, you would do anything to get the job of your dreams! This method will run you about 30 bucks and that is going to the local beauty shop and getting the mixing kits. By the way you are going to need three of them. You will also need to get your natural hair color (or whatever color you want) because after every bleach you will then dye your hair back to the original color. Yes this will hurt a bit but it’s worth it. Don’t leave the dye or the bleach in longer then necessary. If it says 20 minutes then wash it out after only 20 minute. Trust me you might not be feeling it the first bleach and dye but by the next bleach you will feel it.  You also might want to get some moisturizing shampoo but it’s not necessary to help you pass, just to help your hair. No matter how much you smoke this will take care of it.  The toxins from the substances you use are not on the outside of your hair but in the core of your hair. So bleach is the best way to well, tear up your hair to get to the center.

·         “Mac method”

This is something I found in my research that is proven to work. You will need to get vinegar, apple cider or white, clean and clear deep cleansing acne medicine and some tide detergent. Maybe a shower cap if you are around others, it doesn’t smell too good!  You have to soak your hair with the vinegar for about 20 minute. You can do it as long as you want; this won’t burn your head at all.  After that you will soak your head with the clean and clear. Again let this set for about 20 minutes. This might tingle a little bit but it shouldn’t hurt too badly. After the cleanser use the tide to wash out everything. Again it may be useful to have some moisturizing shampoo because your hair will feel like straw. This is only going to work for those who smoke less than twice a week. But it’s only going to cost you like 15 bucks! This is defiantly the cheapest way. I guess the less you smoke the more you get rewarded.

                In conclusion, my research has shown that these are the three best ways to pass a hair drug test. Although nothing is 100 percent sure, if you are a frequent smoker like myself then for best results you must do ALL three methods. I hope this was helpful and saves you some time and money and gives you a little peace of mind! I spent well over what I needed to t get the results I needed! Don’t make the same mistake as me! But for those of you who just can’t leave it to chance there are home hair drug test but they will cost you! They will run you about $70.00 to $120.00 depending on where you get it from. Well that’s it, now you have all the tools needed to succeed. Good luck on your  test

      Hi, so I just got a second interview for a casino, and I have to take a hair drug test if I get the job. On average, I'm not the biggest smoker really but I do smoke somewhat regularly. I haven't been smoking for years, but I started smoking in July and kind of every other day or maybe less up until late September. I smoked bowls really, and they were usually shared. I have smoked blunts, and bongs a few times here and there. I am not a regular smoker, but I do smoke for than twice a week. I have pretty short chin length hair, and my last smoke was about two weeks ago. I have about another 2 weeks before my hair test.. I'm really wondering what my best options would be. I'm definitely going to buy the shampoo, but I'm worried about frying my hair if I buy a bleaching kit. Also, how many times do you have to bleach your hair? Like I said, I don't want to ruin all of my hair and not allow it to grow anymore. What would be your opinion? I definitely did not smoke as frequently as you, but over this summer I smoked a decent amount.

      Hey guys thank you so much for this. I love the fact there were no people going omg you smoke or have smoked and your going to hell crap. Im going for my Cdl soon so I obviously have to stop forever... but I need to get out of my old job fast (hate it) and Im still really worried about failing even after being sober for about 3 and half weeks now and using get clean shampoo, but do you think using the get clean shampoo's would work fast and more effective if i use them like I use my regular shampoo now? And yes i realize this will break the bank but if it works and I can get my cdl it will be well worth it. Thanks for the opinions.

      I too used the Toxin Wash to pass my hair drug test. I didn't use that Mac method just the shampoo but the Toxin Wash directions also call for the vinegar usage. The cheapest place I found to buy it was @ for $59.95 plus shipping it was like $72.00 total. Worked for me too.

      Hey guys. I just got hired at a company that does hair testing back to three months. A little less than three months ago I took 2 hits of a blunt and was around a little bit of smoke. Other than that I haven't smoked in over a year and barely ever before that. I am so nervous because I really need this job. Do you think this small amount within that time frame would show up? Any tips? Thanks

      Everyweekend so that means 5 times and I took around 2-3 each time. I am freaking out because my new job required a hair test. I used bio was shampoo and purifier kit and washed my hair 4 times. Once in the morning the day before also that same night and twice in the shower the morning of the test. Will this work and since I have not done anything for so long prior to this will it help my chances? Please help.

      The real reason I came in was to give some advice to those of us who might have a month or so before we're worried about it. For example, let's say you're waiting to get a new job and have begun abstinence. Here's some pain free advice that will mainly work for men but if women don't mind going short for a month this will help them as well:

      Quit smoking for no less than 45 days. On day 14, cut your hair down to an inch and a half. For a woman to justify this at the test, it's best advised to say you did locks for love. On day 28, cut at least an inch and a half off. Do this until day 45. At day 45, your hair should be clean simply by cutting it a little more frequently than planned.


      If you smoke a joint today, it will not show up for five days. If you smoked a joint every day for the past year, every 5th day from the first joint gave new THC. The THC metabolizes under the skin at first, and doesn't even grow in until day 5 for most people. So, giving yourself 14 days abstinence before the first hair cut will give you the time needed to make sure all the new thc is in, however, it will still be in the inch and a half you have left, which is why whenever possible you MUST wait at least 30 days, but preferably 45.

      If you are screwed and have one tomorrow, as long as today was your first smoke, you're fine. Otherwise, the above methods may help, but I have never tried them.

      Hi Savana,

      It will take five days for any thc to show up in your hair, from the last smoke. Second hand smoke usually does not cause you to fail anyway.

      The mac method does NOT work by any means. You will fail, I suggest rescheduling. I tried it & a hair kit, I wasted my time and money, don't waste yours.
