Collecting the Hair Analysis Sample: Cutting the Hair


Collecting Hair Sample

A Hair analysis sample is collected ONLY after he hair has been washed and rinsed thoroughly.  (See the instructions above for washing your hair.)  Your hair can be collected at our center in about 10 minutes at no additional charge.  If you prefer to collect your own hair, use the instructions below.

You will want to collect the hair from the crown and back of your head.  This will let the sections cut be hidden until they grow back.  Start near the crown of your head as shown in the picture.

Cut a thin sliver of hair making sure you remain very aware of the location of the part closest to your scalp.  Cut about 1 1/2 inches of the part closest to your scalp off and place it in a clean envelope.

Discard the rest of the length of the hair.  Part a new sliver of hair at least 1/2 inch below the first sliver.
