Hair can tell us so much about the minerals in our body! Minerals and nutrients get stored in our tissues and hair is the second biggest tissue in our body. For decades people have been successfully testing the hair for toxins and minerals and getting the answers they need. We prefer hair testing to blood because it is accurate, easy to do and non-invasive. The sample lasts much longer than a blood sample. Blood only shows us materials currently in transit in the body, whereas hair shows us the mineral potential of the entire body and what is currently stored in the body over the years. Here are some easy directions for cutting the hair for accurate testing. First off, wash your hair before the test. Do not use conditioner or other products – just a simple wash to get rid of any grease and dirt. Make sure your hair has dried after washing, so take the sample anywhere from 4-10 hours after you wash the hair depending on how long it takes your hair to dry. Make sure that you take a sample from as close to the scalp as possible. I prefer using the hair at the base of the neck as it gives the most recent information. For those with short hair, cut from many different areas of your head. Those of us with long hair can easily use hairs in the most underneath layers. I tell people that are cutting hair for a hair analysis minerals test to lift up your hair like you are making a pony tail, The little straggly hairs that hang down are usually shorter then the rest of the hair, cut those. The goal is to have a tablespoon or so of hair.
