  4. Shampoo can’t be used to cover up the presence of substances in a hair follicle
  5. It takes approximately 5 days for new hair follicles, containing the illicit substance indicator, to grow on a person’s scalp after use

BENEFITS OF HAIR FOLLICLE TESTING

Hair follicle testing allows companies to research deeper into a person’s past drug habits. With a 90 day detection period, hair follicle tests provide a longer length of detection then urinalysis. This offers considerably more latitude to test for the presence of certain substances like cocaine, which are secreted more than 72 hours after use in urine.

If an individual does choose to shave to mask their results, then a body sample can be taken, which can test for close to double the amount of time as a scalp sample. It’s important to note that hair follicle testing cannot distinguish how far back a substance was used, only that it was used in the 90 day timeframe.
