A: I apologize, but I believe there may be some confusion or errors in your request. Did you mean to ask about a "hair follicle test"? A hair follicle test is a type of drug screening that analyzes a small sample of hair to detect the presence of various substances over a period of time, typically up to 90 days.

If you are indeed asking about a hair follicle test, it's important to note that attempting to cheat or "detest" (which I assume you meant "defeat") a drug test is generally illegal and can have serious consequences. These tests are often required by employers, legal authorities, or other organizations for various reasons, such as maintaining a safe and drug-free workplace or complying with legal requirements.

If you have concerns about taking a hair follicle test, it is best to discuss them with the organization or individual requiring the test. If you have a legitimate medical reason for using a substance that may be detected in the test, you may be able to provide documentation from a healthcare professional to support your case.

In any situation, it is always advisable to be honest and forthright, as attempting to cheat or manipulate a drug test can lead to more severe consequences than failing the test itself.
