When you’re applying for a new job, there’s usually a mandatory drug test that you need to pass before they take you in. If it’s a urine test, it’s easy enough – you stock up on synthetic urine, prepare it, and submit a sample on the day of your test. Brands like Quick Fix have amazing synthetic urine kits that are guaranteed to help you pass your drug test!
But some employers decide to go with another type of drug test: the dreaded hair test. It’s a lot harder to pass than a urine test, especially since it can track traces of drug-use up to 3 months before your test day. A hair test is also harder to cheat than a urine test – you can’t exactly walk in with a wig and hope that you’ll pass.
Luckily for you, I’ve got just the thing to help! It’s called the Jerry G method and it only takes about two weeks of preparation before test-day. In this article, I’ll be talking about what a hair test actually is, the science behind a hair test, and how you can pass it with the Jerry G method!
What Is a Hair Follicle Test?
Similar to a urine test, the lab takes a sample of your hair (specifically 1.5 inches long) that allows them to test for drugs in your system. The only difference is that the results of a hair test can trace substances in your system for up to 90 days prior which makes them extra hard to fool.
You might be thinking to yourself: “but how can a hair test check back as far as 90 days?”
Well, your hair is connected to your blood vessels so that it can grow, meaning it absorbs anything in your bloodstream, drugs included. In a way, it’s more reliable than a urine test because of how accurately it can trace the substances in your system – but don’t worry, I’ve found a foolproof method that can help you pass your hair test!
The Jerry G Method
In taking a drug test, some people go on detox diets to cleanse their body of any illegal substances so that their urine sample is clean. While those detox diets are either a hit or miss, hair detox methods are different. There’s really no other way to fake a hair test unless you remove every piece of hair on your body (which will be more than a little difficult to explain to your employer).
One method that I’ve discovered is the Jerry G method. It became popular back in 2008 when a user by the name of Jerry_G posted the steps in an online forum. Because of his popularity among the community, the method rapidly gained traction and soon became the go-to solution for those who had a hair test coming up.
How Does the Jerry G Method Work?
To learn how to pass a hair follicle drug test, you need to open up your hair cuticles and then clean your cortex. The cortex is the thickest layer of your hair strand and contains melanin, the pigment that colors your hair. When you do this, you can strip your hair away of any substances that can be detected through lab tests.
The Jerry G method is pretty tough on your hair so it’s highly recommended that you help your hair recover after the method. You can opt to get a haircut and regrow healthy natural hair, or you can do some moisturizing treatments to make your hair less brittle. Either way, the method is focused on ridding your hair of any substances, so expect it to drastically change the texture of your hair!
The things you need for this method are:
- Baking soda
- 40 vol peroxide bleach
- 2 boxes of hair dye with ammonia
- Toxin Wash Shampoo
- Zydot Ultra Clean Shampoo
Remember to put on some safety goggles and gloves so you can protect yourself throughout the entire process. You’ll be dealing with harsh chemicals, so stay safe!
Here’s what you need to do:
- Before starting the method, make sure that you stop using any substances for this method to work.
- Once you stop using drugs; that’s when you should bleach your hair using the peroxide bleach.
- Next, take your hair dye with ammonia and start coloring your hair according to the instructions in the box.
- After waiting for the dye to settle in, wash your hair with the Toxin Wash shampoo. Always check with the instructions written on when to wash your hair to keep the dye in your hair.
- Make sure to bleach and dye your hair again ten days after the first day. If you don’t have time, make sure to do it before the day of your drug test.
- After dyeing your hair the second time, wash it again with Toxin Wash shampoo.
- On the day of testing, mix baking soda with a little bit of water until it turns into a paste. Rub it into your scalp and let it soak for 15 minutes.
- To wash it off, use Toxin Wash shampoo again to get rid of any final traces of THC metabolites.
- Lastly, finish off the Jerry G method with a final wash of Zydot Ultra Clean shampoo.
When it comes to dyeing your hair, it can be difficult to do on your own. It’s better to ask a friend to help you out or go to a salon if you feel like you can’t do it yourself. Make sure that the hair dye has ammonia and that it’s permanent. Natural dyes won’t work for this process because they simply won’t penetrate deep enough.
Letting baking soda rest in your hair allows your cuticles to open up so that when you wash it off with the Toxin Wash shampoo, any traces of illicit substances can be removed completely. This step is really important, especially since you’ll be doing it on the day of the test.
One other important thing to note: make sure that you don’t use any illegal substances until after you get the all-clear from the lab or your employer. Sometimes, the lab may ask to test your hair for a second time so it’s best to stay on the safe side and lay off the drugs for a while after you take the test.
Results: Is the Jerry G Method Effective?
Since I take my job very seriously, I’ve tried and tested about a dozen methods that claim to help you pass a hair test. Through this research I can firmly conclude the Jerry G method is really quite effective. Not only does it work like a charm, it’s also way cheaper than any other hair detox method out there. The only downside I see to it is that you need a significant amount of time and preparation.
Another thing to remember about the Jerry G method is that it’s still a little risky. Bleach and ammonia are very harmful substances and your hair will take a lot of damage when you do it. If you decide to push through with the Jerry G method, you’re going to have to prepare yourself for a lot of moisturizing treatments just so you can return your hair to its natural healthy state!
Honestly, the best way to pass a hair test is to stop taking drugs while you’re job hunting. I know it’s hard (trust me, I’ve been there) but you never really know which of your employers will demand a hair test from you, and it’ll be trickier to pass when you’re only given a short amount of time to prepare for it.
All in all; the Jerry G method definitely works, but remember the damage your scalp and hair are taking, and make sure that you have the time to fully prepare and perform this method effectively. There are no half-measures when it comes to hair drug tests, you have to do this routine exactly as written if you want to pass.
