I stand corrected the hair loss disease is called alopecia universalis

Does it say how long the hair has to be? It grows around 1/2 inch per month. Better than waiting 5 years, or whatever.

Yes at least 1.5 inches. They can and will take hair from any place. Cause I keep my hair cut short the nurse at Concentra actually shave my arm pits for me.lol no kidding.

I'm a competitive swimmer so I had to shave all my body hair so I don't lose any time. Think they'd buy that? Granted at 250 lbs I'm sure they'd question what kind of competitions I enter. But I could tell them I'd prove it by putting on my speedo. No one wants to see that. Haha

Really, so someone fresh out of the military (or a competitive swimmer) would be quarantined until their hair grew out?

I don't know, it just seems unconstitutional to say "you can't be hairless" as a lifestyle choice, but I digress.

You can be hairless all you want but if you can't take a hair drug test then you have to wait till its grown out THEN apply for trucking.

That's what I mean, corporations can set anti-american double standards all they want.

Not that I'm rooting for drug use, it's just the principle of hairlessness being micromanaged.

Not going to keep into a topic about the right to live the way someone wants. Arguing the rights of someone to live outside of a hair society would be like me arguing that if I applied to be a doctor and was refused employment cause I have no medical background then by right of the this threads logic I could scream discrimination.

Does not work that way.
