---My entire story---
6'0" 185lbs male. High metabolism, blonde hair, drink primarily water and do intense workouts 3-5days a week.
Discovered that company I was on verge of signing with did HFT Tuesday night 5/20, got offer 5/23. Accepted offer 5/31
HFT scheduled for 6/7.
Full body shaven 5/23,
Last drug use a few lines of coke on 5/18, 1/2 a xanex on 5/11. Weed on 5/5 before that 4/20,
before that regular use off and on, sometimes a gram a day, some days no smoking, also used shrooms in march, 2-5i(psychadelic) in april, molly twice throughout this period.
Hair net w/ chemicals cut into back of neck,forehead, and ears and created burns,
so I put paper towels in between to protect from further damage.
--Wednesday 5/21- Thurs 5/22- Apple Cider Vinegar 30 mins., Clean & Clear 30 mins., Tide Detergent 30 mins.,Selsun w/ aloe moisturizing shampoo with wash
--Friday 5/23- Sunday 5/26- All steps above with Tsal 30mins after Tide, then baking soda mix 20mins, finished with Selsun
--Monday 5/27- Powdered bleach, did not redye due to chemical burns
--Tuesday 5/28-Washed w/ tsal twice, no further treatment to allow burns to continue to recover
--Wednesday 5/29- Received Hair Confirm Express Product that I had purchased on Amazon.com and sent it to the testing facility to see where I stood(Hoping for the best so that I could stop fucking up my hair and scalp so much!) At night, baking soda(30min.), Tide(30min), Tsal(30min), and finished with washing out with Selsun moisurizing with aloe (Hair felt like shit by this point)
--Thursday 5/30-Burns finally reached point where I thought they could withstand redye, and I got it professionally done. Washed with Tsal twice, once in morning and once at night Also, got results back from HairConfirm showing that I test negative for all 5 drugs screened, which means am clean, or so I hope. But Im still not satisfied and not wanting to put it to chance, so we press on.
--Friday-Washed with Tsal once in the morning but did not do any other treatment
--Saturday 6/1- Baking soda(30mins), Tide(30mins), Tsal(30mins), shampooed with selsun
--Sunday 6/2-Washed with TSal, no other treatment done
--Monday 6/3-Washed with TSal, no other treatment done
--Tuesday 6/4- Baking Soda(30mins), Tide(30mins), Washed with TSal twice 1 in morning 1 after treatment
--Wednesday 6/5-Baking Soda(30mins), Tide(30mins), Washed with TSal twice same as above
--Thursday 6/6- Baking Soda(30mins), Tide(30mins), Washed with TSal twice same as above
--Friday 6/7-Day of test!!! Woke up 2 hours early- Baking Soda(30mins), Tide(30mins), Washed with Tsal, Zydot treatment(30 mins). Hair burns, scalp has visible redness, and dye has worn out some due to the past few days of treatment, but its showtime now. Test is through Psychmedics. Here goes nothing. Next update will be when result come back...
Called Hiring Agency on 6/10 to see if results had come back yet. They told me the test came back negative which means I passed!!
Got the official info. from my company 6/12 confirming this. It was a very stressful few weeks, but I stayed confident, and prayed a lot. The lord has a plan for me that didnt involve failing that BS test. At the risk of being randomly tested at my new job, I have had to make the dificult decision to cease my drug use. Maybe not permanently because the thing about HFT's is that only catch consist regular drug use, so for the occasional user the odds are greatly decreased for producing a positive result. For all these people worrying about smoking only a few times over the past few months, get outta here with that!! You will be fine doing very minimal amounts of treatment to get your hair ready, so stop posting that BS, and stop worrying!! For all my habituals out there, the road to success can be strenuous and very bumpy, but if you are willing to do what is necessary in order to pass then there are options!! Don't believe all those BS websites and/or companies that tell you there is nothing you can do to beat a HFT because they don't know shit!! This website is all you need. I didnt try all of the different products mentioned on this page, and I made my own modified version of the Gman/Jerry G method, but I am sure that there are more than 1 way to skin this cat. I can only speak for my method, but do your homework. I spent a solid 12 hours researching, and wading through the bullshit on the internet to find a path that was suitable for me. If you have time before your test, I would definitely recommend purchasing a home HFT online through HairConfirm. All in all, the end justified the means, and I would do it all over again if I had to, but I hope I never have to!
Good luck to all, and always remember, where there is a WILL there is a WAY!!
