How can drugs be detected in hair?

When a person consumes drugs, they are broken down by the liver, and some of the drug and/or its metabolites (breakdown products) are absorbed into the bloodstream.

Through the bloodstream, they then enter the hair follicle and become trapped in the innermost layer of the hair shaft. This makes it possible to detect them during analysis at our toxicology laboratory.

It is possible for drugs to remain detectable in a hair sample for up to 12 months, depending on the type/length of hair available for testing.

Which drugs can we test for?

Home hair drug testing can be used to test for the following substances:

Amphetamine Mephedrone
Benzodiazepines Methadone
Buprenorphine Methamphetamine
Cannabis Opiates (e.g. Heroin)
Cocaine PCP (Phencyclidine)
Ketamine Zolpidem
MDMA (Ecstasy)

Sample collection

You should submit ONLY ONE type of hair sample from the following:

  • Head hair
  • Body hair
  • Facial hair
  • Hair collected from a hairbrush

If you are submitting head hair, we will need a minimum of 200 hairs. When twisted this will be the approximate width of a pencil. Ideally this should be cut from as close to the scalp as possible.

If you are submitting body hair, it can be taken from any part of the body and from different parts of the body.

When loosely clumped together, the body hair, facial hair or hairbrush hair sample should be at least the size of a golf ball.
