    I dont have head hair, or body hair, but I have a huge beard. Will that work for the hair follicle test?

    That works. They just go over it with scissors and voila! You’ll have a new look.. :)

    They have to get a fair amount of hair so I'm not sure if you'd want to go that route.

    They actually don’t take that much. My company took about an inch in length and it was a small amount.

    The one I had a week ago seemed like a lot.

    Maybe your test engineer was a noob. Mine was off my hair and my short haircut didn’t event show it.

    It seems as though it is for new hires.
    I just had my DOT yearly physical and it was only urine. And they didn't even send it in for testing, just a strip test. The rest was thrown down the drain.

    I haven't had a random in some time, and those are sent in. I guess I'll find out at the next one if they are taking hair samples.
