    Hair Dye and False Positive Urine test

    I came across a few articles relating to dying your hair. Some hair Dyes have a lot of Ammonia in them as well as Alcohol. Which in turn is leading to false/positives with urine tests. Scientists have shown that if you dye your hair within 72 hours of taking a urine test you are likely to show positive for Methamphetamine and or Alcohol. This is because the chemical is absorbed through the scalp into the follicle which has blood supply and fed throughout the body. Now these results may not be significant but it could cause you to retest or in some cases with companies be barred from employment for having a questionable specimen. So now what do you do? Well for starters avoid dying your hair during the time you are seeking employment.

    In other cases you can simple show the employer that you recently had your hair done and offer an alternative drug test i.e. saliva, urine at a later date.

    Another bump people sometimes run into is makeessay hair follicle testing. Dying your hair right before a hair follicle test does nothing but up your chances of failing due to the chemicals that will react with the test not to mention show the lab you recently died your hair before a follicle test when it clearly explains not to. So in this situation you can save your butt by purchasing a hair follicle shampoo that will cleanse it of as many toxins as possible even the unwanted chemicals from the hair dye. There are numerous products out there for example Folli Klean, Ultra Cleanse, and the markets top seller right now Zydot Ultra Clean Shampoo. These products usually range anywhere from $29.99 to $35.99 on legit websites. Now remember each of these products only cover up to 5 inches in length of hair. Example if your hair is to your shoulders the manufacturer recommends that you get 2 to 3 bottles and follow the directions on the day of the test.
