Yes, they heal: Hair falls from follicles normally. When hair is accidently pulled out, it can become red and inflamed, however no permanent damage results. The follicles are a permanent part of your scalp and all of your skin. After a few days, or a few weeks, the hair follicle will begin to regenerate a new strand of hair that will grow like before. Think of people who pluck or wax unwanted hair, it regrows. :) ...Read more

Different answers: I have read that one time use might not even show up. Most answers say that if use is regular, then it will stay for about 2-3 months. One person said that his parents, both of whom are police, told him that it could stay for a year. Hair grows at 0.5 inches per month, so they usually cut off three months of hair growth (1.5 inches) for the sample for detection. Why not just not use the stuff? ...Read more

Avoid if possible:
At least one study says no. Note: hair always gets a little damaged when applying color, even if you're going back to your natural hue. Both permanent and semi-permanent dyes contain hydrogen peroxide, which chemically changes the color of the hair pigment.

Depends: Depends on how long your hair is, and how long ago you drank. Hair-testing looks for ethyl glucuronide, and every time you drink, there is a band representing ethyl glucuronide laid down in the hair follicle. Hair grows about 1/2- i inch per month, so if your hair is 8 inches long, the hair furthest from the follicle will give anywhere from 4-8 months of info. Other hair grows slower (body hair). ...Read more

Few options: Topical antibiotics may be of help with infected hair follicles (folliculitis). If there is an ingrown hair problem, try not tweezing or pulling the hairs out and don't shave too close to the skin. Also, avoid pressure or traumatizing the area of concern. Laser hair removal is also very effective in that it eliminates the hair follicle and prevents the inflammation. ...Read more
