used cocaine 5 weeks ago. will have a hair test in 2 weeks. I am not a chronic user. used 5 weeks ago and 4 months prior to that. is there anything I can do to reduce the levels. i am a male with short grayish hair. Thanks
I understand your concern and it's my first priority to serve you.
Generally, the detection period for hair tests is approximately 90 days (3 months).
Cocaine is usually detected in hair samples in the case of a person who has been a long time user.
However there have been some cases where cocaine was detected in a hair sample after a one time use of the drug.
And unfortunately there is absolutely no evidence that anything including drinking water, herbal products, or saunas are going to do anything to remove the drug metabolites from the hair.
The drug metabolites are incorporated into the shaft of the hair as it grows.
So there is chance to get a positive drug test however less.
Hope this helps.
If you have any further query then feel free to ask.
