Hair Test Scheduled (African Descent) Please advice, am i clean????
Posted 06 April 2012 - 01:25 AM
I made the mistake of smoking this year on January 10th (I smoked quite a bit, I took about 20-40 puffs, I don't know how potent it was, I was high but nothing I couldn't handle), it's been 88 days exactly. I'm worried. I have a hair test, it is the Quest Diagnostics Hair-5 test coming up for a job.
Like I pointed out, I'm of African descent, right now the hair on my head is less than an inch, my facial hair is about 1.5 inch and my body hair is normal.
What are my odds of passing this test? What precautions can I take? I heard body hair can be used also, but is more likely to be tested as positive.
Should I just cut all my hair off, including body hair? It is pretty normal for black guys to have low cuts and I'll just say I have sweating issues, so I have to cut my body hair off...
Will this be a red flag, I'm just trying to buy more time.
What do you think?

i'm not 100% sure as i have no experience with a hair test, but if you have no hair anywhere i think it might raise a red flag. not to say it'd get you fired, but it might prevent you from getting hired.
I "trimmed" most of my body hair below 1 inch and cut down my armpits. I did this a while ago so when I go in to test it wouldn't look like a "fresh" cut. I mean, there are guys that cut their armpits, it wouldn't look completely suspect, right?
The only hair I have really is my eyebrows and the hair on my head, I plan to push the test date to the best of my ability. Maybe I can get 105days clean at that point.
I've read that if they cannot collect enough hair, they sometimes supplement with a urine test. My hair is very short, that's not me hiding anything, I just like low cuts.
What do you guys think. I'm not a regular smoker by any means, like I said, I smoked first time in my life summer 2006, I put it down and smoked this year (a few puffs)
What is the consensus? I want to put some money together and do a private hair test before the company appointment, but I'm broke it's pretty expensive.
Logically, I know 1.5 inch dates back to 90 days and I have less than 1.5 inch of hair and I've been clean for more than 90 days.

I've found that legally they can only go back 90 days.
