Hair testing for meth

Can anyone -- someone tell me how a hair sample can come back negative for meth when you know the person has used within the last 60 days?

Addicts are oh-so-clever ,if there's a test, there's a way to beat it! I know what someone looks like when they are using and thats the only test I now use-my own 2 eyes

It wasn't their hair?

Not sure.

Either way, let their behavior speak for itself. With or without the "proof" of the drug, is their behavior unacceptable?

I hope you find some peace in all of this, hon.

Unfortunately meth only stays in the system for a very short time. A few days from what I've been told. It's not like marijuana which clings to body fat.

A friend of my xhusbands had his wife tested...she called me and told me she ordered something on net and was able to beat the hair follicle test. We all know for a fact she was using, she beat the test. She was able to keep custody of her four girls. If she had failed test, he would have got custody.

I googled (with how to beat hair follicle test) and found a few things...this was the first link hair follicle detoxification

YES. You can order kits online that will strip your hair of drugs [incl methamphetamines] in 48 hours I believe. Or less.

My husband managed to pass a hair test this way.

There are expensive shampoos that you can buy that will strip the hair follicles of drugs. My next question is why do I know this? I agree with the others. An addict can beat it in most cases.
