The authorities of WADA (world anti-doping agency) are smarter than you think. They have in-depth details of the types of new drugs used by athletes that do not show up in tests performed by them and are always updating themselves with newer technologies for determining the presence of drugs in athletes. Until a couple of years ago, the agency only resorted to blood and saliva tests. Later on, when they discovered that these methods were not enough to confirm the presence of certain types of performance-boosting drugs, they started examining urine for the presence of steroids and other similar drugs. They banned many athletes from participating in sporting events after exposing the presence of drugs in their urine sample.

It is a well-known fact that many companies offer special kits that help athletes test themselves for the presence of drugs and take evasive action to prevent the authorities of WADA from trapping them during drug tests. They started using fake urine, a powder that matches the consistency of “real” urine in all parameters such as temperature, specific gravity, and color. The athlete would conceal the pouch containing the powder, drop it in the receptacle provided by WADA for collecting their urine samples, mix water with it, and return the container to the anti-drug enforcing agent. This method was successful for several years. However, it was no longer useful when the authorities demanded that the athlete pass urine in their presence. This prevented sportspersons from passing urine drug detection tests.
WADA resorts to tests that are more stringent
Athletes know that if they stop taking drugs 14 to 20 days prior to the testing date, they would test negative in blood, urine, or saliva tests, as traces of drugs rarely remains in the system for more than 15 days. However, it does remain in the hair follicles for three months and even more. It was not long before WADA started performing hair follicle tests on athletes. In such a test, the authorities pluck a couple of hair from the athlete’s skull or chest and perform pathological tests on them to determine the presence of drugs.
How to pass a hair follicle drug test
To pass a hair follicle drug test, you first have to stop taking drugs at least a month before the scheduled date of testing. You also need to drink lots of water to remove remnants of drugs from your system. Search online for detoxification shampoos and purchase a reputable one from a reliable online store. Massage this shampoo on your hair daily for at least two weeks before the testing date. These shampoos work by penetrating your hair follicle and removing the drug toxins.
