    Hair Follicle Test
    Hey all,

    So I got into a nursing program I've been trying to get in for a while. It's a top program with tons of opportunities for the future. Unfortunately I'm out of the country on a service trip and could not make the 72 hour deadline for the urine test, so they are making me take a hair follicle test. About two months back I smoked 3-4 times in the span of a week because I got a really good job I've been wanting for a while, and I thought I'd have enough time to pass the drug test for nursing school... funny how things bite you in the .

    Besides that I haven't smoked at all in the past two years, and before then was an extremely infrequent smoker, maybe a couple times a year. I also am fairly lightweight and usually only 1-3 tokes gets me high, so overall consumption of weed was very light. Do you think I have anything to worry about? I've been researching like crazy, but the internet is very inconsistent and I just need someone to tell me everything will be okay haha. I'd be okay using cleansing shampoos, relaxers etc. But I don't know if I could afford to bleach/redie it, and don't know if my situation warrants something like the MacCuj0 method. Any help is well appreciated, I've worked extremely hard to have something like a drug test get in my way when I've come so far.

    Thank you all in advance!

    Hair follicle tests are generally designed to detect drug use going back 90 days, with a level of acceptance for any accidental exposure. Knowing what that cut off level is may help you, but stay away from the easy quick fixes to hide your previous activities as they themselves raise many red flags to testers and their clients. They have tested thousands and know all the tricks of cheaters. Total abstinence and a very healthy diet and drug free activities is usually the way to go to help flush your system, for the next 30 days.

    Sorry, no one can give you hugs and reassurances, but relax in the knowledge that they are looking for habitual heavy users, and you are not one from what you wrote.

    Good Luck.

    A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time. A 1.5 inch sample, cut at the scalp line, will go back 90 days. With the small amount of drug you ingested it is unlikely it will show up. My best guess is that you will be negative.
