I'm not a Dr but I don't think that cutting your hair will help unless you shave it. And even that is taking a chance. Your best bet if you're in doubt and they're testing is don't even show up and say you got a warehouse job or something. A failed drug test on the dac is hard to recover from


Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

To anyone who comes across this thread... shaving your head/cutting your hair will not prevent you from getting hair-follicle tested. I keep my head shaved; the tester simply shaved hair from my arm to get the hair sample they needed. If you even need to ask this question this may not be the profession for you.
