Hair is one of the best specimens in certain cases of hair follicle drug test. Though hair drug test is quite expensive it is the only sample by which drugs can detected even after 90 days of drug addiction. Drugs when are exposed to the human body will get metabolized in to their active metabolites. Metabolites will get dissolved in blood or excreted in the urine. Some of the drug metabolites will get deposited in the fatty substance, in the hair shafts. Drugs which are accumulated in the hair shafts will persist for long time and mixed with it. Drug metabolite becomes one of the nutrients for the hair growth and grows along the hair. Hence it is quite tough to remove the drug metabolite from the hair specimen. Even if you shave or shampoo your hair it does not work. For this reason hair drug test is considered as the effective method compared to other methods of drug testing.
