DOT Drug Testing: Urinalysis or Hair Follicle?

If I was a person with shoulder length hair who had not consumed cannabis for the past year, I'd shave my head, break out a bottle of Nair, and hop in the shower. My attitude is, when your employment is at stake, don't take any chances.

Hypothetically, would a person with shoulder length hair who has not consumed cannabis for the past year need to cut their hair?

Thank you for your reply. From what I understand, many/most companies do not go past 90 days (the 1.5 inches of hair closest to the scalp).

However, with long hair it would be possible to check back farther should the company choose to (and apparently those tests are more expensive).

I'm in agreeance with you about not taking chances with respect to one's career. With that in mind, the hypothetical long hair who hasn't consumed cannabis in 365+ days could theoretically cut all but about 5 to 6 inches of their hair and be good for the test, if I'm understanding everything correctly (hopefully this can be confirmed in the thread).
