    Looking for hair test guru

    I need to find out a few things about drug hair testing. More specifically the hair testing they do for casino employment in Las Vegas. I stopped smoking pot 1.5 months ago and I need to know how long It stays in your hair. I had a shaved head when I stopped. I was wondering how long the pot will stay in my hair? If I shaved my head again now,1.5 months later, would it still show if I let it grow now?

    Hair test's....Pretty much fcked.
    They check either the 60 day box or the 90 day one (most cases the 90 day one) Same price for the company.
    They got the shampoo's etc but IMO they don't work.

    Whats this for?

    Here's what I know...

    Hair testing: When THC metabolites are in the blood, they go through
    the blood vessels in the head, and get filtered through the hair. THC
    metabolites remain in the hair as a permanent record. The hair test costs
    several hundred dollars ($150-$300) and is rarely given because urinalysis
    is cheaper (approximately $65) and more accurate. (The hair test equipment
    and setup goes for over a million). According to Jeff Nightbyrd, hair
    tests are "widely used in the casino industry." They cut 50 strands of
    hair from the scalp, and send it in to the testing lab where they liquefy
    it. "A hair sample is disolved in a series of solvents which extract the
    drug metabolites and then are analyzed via GC/MS." It can take several
    hours to days just to extract metabolites. Average hair grows 1/4 inch per
    month. Typically they just use hair one and a half inches from the scalp;
    though some labs will take enough to test for up to 3 years. The liquid is
    run through the most sensitive GC/MS machines available, and can detect as
    little as 1 ng/mL! The hair test discriminates in that detection is easier
    in dark hair. Colored people may be discriminated against further because
    melanin is in their hair, which can be mistaken for THC. However, there is
    conflicting data as to whether melanin can be detected as THC.
    Psychemedics Corporation has a PDT90 kit for $75. This home test kit is
    for parents that want to chop off a lock of their child's hair to find out
    what drugs s/he is using. Kids- lock your bedroom doors at night if your
    parents don't trust your judgment on the drug issue.

    Beating the hair test is extremely hard, and there are false positives.
    Bleaching or dying your hair is rumored to work, but it doesn't. I imagine
    you can shave every hair on your body and claim that you're a swimmer.
    According to NORML, Aloe Rid by Nexus is a shampoo that will aid in testing
    negative. Aloe Rid is available only in salons. Healthy Hair, from Sampson
    Health Products, is another shampoo designed to beat the hair test.
    Healthy Hair is sold in retail stores throughout Las Vegas. Keith Thrash
    from Sampson Health Products reccommends precleansing with Aloe Rid prior
    to using Healthy Hair. Healthy Hair is used in the morning and before
    going to bed. Each session takes 20 minutes. According to Steve at
    Sampson Health Products, two out of a thousand people failed the hair test
    when using Healthy Hair. Byrd Labs is currently developing a shampoo to
    defeat the hair test. Some have suggested treating hair with oil because
    THC is oil based and oil soluble. However, there is no proven way to beat
    the hair test, so it's all heresay and guessing at this point. (If anyone
    has any success with the shampoos or the swimmer excuse, please let me
    know). Swimming and washing your hair removes toxins, and Keith Thrash
    recommends doing both as much as possible. Fortunately, the hair test
    cannot be used alone as evidence because there are no forensic standards.
    It can only be used when substantiated by other evidence. Also, there are
    no intoxication standards. I believe if you tested positive for the hair
    test that you would probably have a good chance of fighting it.
    (BlockBuster Video uses the most up-to-date equipment, and passing such a
    test can be difficult). It takes several months of precleansing to beat
    the tests given by Psychemedics.

    I'm going to be trying to get a casino job. I was wondering though, If I haven't smoked anything and there's nothing in my system to grow out into my hair can it still be detected? I shave my head but I'm going to start letting it grow. Wouldn't that mean that the new hair growing would also be free of any THC since it is out of my system by now?

    That is the question! Does it still show up in your hair even though it's not in you blood or piss? THC stores in your fat. I've heard it can show up in your hair for up to a few years. I smoked everyday for 15 years.

    So say a person with long hair smoked pot and quit. They never got a hair cut. THat pot would still be in their hair even though new hair grew. Now me, a person who shaves his head, shouldn't have THC in his hair that he grew after he stopped smoking pot and it was clean from his system right?

    If you smoked pot 2 weeks ago shaved your head and let it grow back you would still test positive with a hair test.

    Is the casino making you grow your hair out for the test?

    Kinda, They'll tell you to come back when you have hair to get a sample from. They can take it from anywhere though. But I shave my body hair too.

    The hemp plant has no THC in it though only the cannibis sativa plant.
