Buying your detox products from GNC seems like an ideal solution. After all, they have stores all over the country, as well as an online store. At the moment, though, they don't seem to sell a detox shampoo for hair drug tests. Here are some other solutions to get you through that drug test.
Will Normal Shampoos Work?
GNC sell a range of normal shampoos, so won't one of these work? In short, they won't make any difference at all.
Any drug metabolites in your hair are stored deep in the core of the hair shaft, which is protected by a hard layer called the cuticle. When labs test hair, they dissolve the entire hair sample to release the various toxins contained in the hair. Shampoos, however, just clean the outside of your hair strands and never penetrate the cuticle. If they did, even slightly, it would make hair drug tests pointless, because the vast majority of people wash their hair regularly.
Some people try to detox their hair by bleaching it multiple times before dyeing it back to its natural color. This might be more effective, but using harsh products like bleach over and over will do a lot of damage to your hair in the process.
What Detox Shampoos Are There?
The most popular detox shampoo is Zydot's Ultra Clean Shampoo and Conditioner. Rather than just containing agents to mask the presence of drugs, this actually penetrates deep down to dissolve drug metabolites. The shampoo first removes any external barriers like hair spray, gels, or built-up grime, and then you apply the purifier to cleanse deep into the hair. A second shampooing then rinses it all away. Zydot even include a conditioner to keep your hair shiny and tangle free.
One kit is usually enough for people with shorter hair, but if you have hair longer than six inches, unusually thick hair, or a history of sustained drug use, you'll need two kits. Always make sure you follow the instructions closely.
It's also important to avoid recontamination. Over time, drug residues can accumulate in things like hats, hoodies, headrests, pillows, and even eyeglasses. Make sure that anything that comes into contact with your hair is clean, or you'll risk failing the test anyway.
Other hair detoxing products include the Ultra Cleanse shampoo and conditioner from Ultra Kleen, the Folli-Kleen Intense Hair Cleanser and the Test Pass Detox Shampoo. Many of these products come with guarantees.
Is There Any Way to Avoid a Hair Drug Test?
Yes, there is, but you probably won't like it. The only surefire way is to shave all your hair. This includes your body hair, because they will take a sample of that if there's not enough head hair. This will only get you out of the hair test, and it might trigger some suspicions. It's also quite likely you'll need to take another test, probably a urine drug test, instead.
On the other hand, if you've been clean for a month or so, you could try getting a very short haircut (let's say half an inch long) combined with a full body shave.
