One of the most commonly asked questions anyone facing a hair follicle screening asks is, “Whats the best hair follicle detox shampoo?“. Unfortunately the answer is not simple. In order to totally strip THC from your hair follicles, your going need more more than just a standard shampoos.
Zydot Ultra Clean Works
For only a fraction of the cost of the Mac orJerry G method. You can pick up Ultra Clean, recognized as a Medical Grade Hair Detox Shampoo kit. If you cant spend the money to do the Macujo Method, this is probably the best alternative to Nexxus Aloe rid.
How it Works
This product uses a three step cleansing method to get deep into the follicles and strip out THC from hair shaft.
The first step is a deep cleaner. Used to remove buildup from the hair shafts outer most layer. Making easier to penetrate through the cuticle and get deeper into the follicular layer.
The harshest compound your going to use in this kit is the purifier. After the detox shampoo has cleared out build up from sprays and styling products, it softens the shafts exterior.
Leaving it vulnerable to the purifier. Allowing it to dig in deep, neutralize toxins and drug metabolites from the hair strands.
A basic conditioner use to try and minimize the damage done through stripping. It’s an important step to protecting hair between cleanings. But, don’t expect any miracles, detoxing hair shampoos will damage your hair.
If your planing to use Zydot without Aloe Rid, you have to know this!
One Ultra clean kit is equal to one use. The manufacturer suggests using the product once before getting tested, but that will not work for regular users. We suggest getting 2-5 kits for use over 2-5 days before testing. The last kit to be used an before getting tested. You can save money by splitting the kit into two uses.
This is why people fail with Ultra Clean
Three uses in the minimum amount of times you should cleanse your hair with Ultra Clean. It can be spread out through three days, or repeated in one day, but only in a real pinch.
Zydot has proven to be the a real medical grade hair detoxification shampoo, for the price. A good track record and a fair reliability rating.
There are two things you should keep in mind:
- Even though its safer and may not be as damaging as the Mac Method. A full cycle with this kit will cause split ends, dry brittle and damaged hair.
- Mac Method with Aloe Rid is still more effective and reliable. It also will cause damage to the hair and scalp.
So, it really comes down to weighing your risks and deciding how important it is for you to cleanse out drug metabolites form your hair.

What is a medical grade hair detox shampoo?
Even though some over the counter hair cleaners are considered to be very strong. They wont be able to penetrate through the hair cuticles to rinse out THC or any other metabolites.
To do so, you would need to break through hair fibers, penetrating the cuticle wall and get into the follicle. The only way to do so is the Mac Method, and that requires repeating cleanings.
Whats the best hair follicle detox shampoo?
Lets say you don’t have the time or money needed to do the mac or jerry G method. There are other options that may help you out.
Some companies have created hair cleansers that are cheaper and easier to use. But they still may require a few cleanings and 2 or more steps to complete.
The reliability of some of these shampoos is fair, but not as good as the methods mentioned above.
I would suggest using these types of cleaners for getting THC out of your hair, only if you are an occasional, or light smoker.
Heavy long term pot smokers would probably need to use the mac method to strip out THC.
THC is binded to follicle
The reason its so hard to cleanse out THC from your hair follicle is because of the way hair grows.
As your hair grows, it uses minerals in your body as building blocks. As metabolites from drug use flow through your blood stream. They are picked up and used to form hair, bones and nails.
This means that your hair, bones and nails can be used to detect drug use. The rate of growth would determine detox times for each.
Heres an example:
- Hair grows as a rate of about 6 inches per year. That means 6 inches of hair will give you a years worth of information
- Nails grow at faster rate on average. but because they are kept trimmed. Its not possible to get more than a month or so of history.
- Adult bones don’t grow, but they do collect minerals for repair. Making it possible to collect a life times worth of information.
Breaking the Follicle
The only way to possibly cheat the hair tests is to break open the follicle to get rid of THC. This is not easy at all and requires time, patients and chemicals.
Chemicals like Salicylic acid, a powerful and potentially dangerous chemical. Which may not sound familiar is probably in your medicine cabinet. Aspirin or acetylsalicylic acid is is a common over the counter medicine, used to treat aches and pains. Its also the precursor for Salicylic acid.
This chemical can be used to treat acme and break open hair follicles. Allowing you to use other powerful shampoos like OG Aloe Rid to get rid of marijuana from your hair.
