There is no way: to beat a hair follicle test for drugs of abuse. Any attempts to flush the drugs would be picked up by looking at scpecific gravity of urine.

Don't take drugs: A hair follicle test is for previous use of drugs/medications. Marijuana is typically tested for, however other drugs may be found. To pass a hair follicle test, don't take drugs!

It depends.: Hair grows about 1/2 " a month. If you've been clean for 8 months, that means that no drug can be detected in the four inches of hair closest to your scalp. If your hair is shorter than 4" long, no drug will be detected in the hair specimen. Stay clean, my man. Never drive any vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, sedating meds or illicit drugs.

Actually that: would be a miracle. There is no effective THC cleanse. The tests are designed to show if you have tried to wash it out of your system.
