Once sent to a laboratory the hair is dissolved with organic solvents. Once in a liquid solution, the toxins are freed from within the hair follicle. An extraction is performed on the liquid, and drug toxins or nicotine toxins are removed. Once the nicotine or drug metabolites are isolated a GC/MS is performed just like with urinalysis testing.
The Hair Detox Test Shampoo works by coating the hair with an organic film much like a conditioner. When the examiner removes the hair sample, the shampoo bound to the hair goes with it. Once the hair is dissolved, the residual left by the shampoo is free to interact with the nicotine or drug metabolites, which had been trapped in the hair follicle, masking the toxins.
If you have long hair or thicker hair such as African-American hair, you will need more than one bottle.
