    Hair testing
    I did cocaine about two months ago (august 3rd) . I did a small amount and I am not a frequent user. I have no head hair. Will I pass a hair test using body hair?

    Normally they will look much closer at your testing, if you have no head hair. ( They assume you trying to hide use)

    But, other body hair will show.

    Would I have to wait another month to complete the 90 days employeers say they check?

    Probably, but the problem with body hair is that it grows slower so it is harder to measure 3 months worth. If you want a month then you may or may not have it out of your system. If you only had the amount which you claim, I wouldn't sweat it. They look for habitual use not one or two time use.

    I agree, probably, to be on the safe side. And also agree with Cravenmorhead, that body hair is harder to measure, thus why head hair is normally used.

    But, if your usage is as small as noted, in another month you should be fine.

    It will take 2-3 months maximum and then all will be fine don't worry you will definitely pass it.

    Please don't make absolute statements when there's a chance that it could be false. The odds are that he'll pass but there is always a chance he'll fail. You can't say that he'll pass definitely. There could be mitigating factors that we don't know about or that he's lied about.

    A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time. I think you should be negative. With body hair it gives a longer time frame of about 9-12 month but recently the lab I partner with put out the following statement regarding body hair.

    "Body hair is noted as "Body Hair” with no length associated. While body hair is generally acknowledged as representing a more distant time frame than head hair, the approximate time period cannot be identified due to the high variability of growth rates and rates of incorporation of drugs. It should also be noted that the donor can impact this time frame through shaving and regrowth of body hair."
