Unhappy Hair follicle test

Used to be a heavy drug user. Got clean and had a slip up a month and a half ago. Had 4 hits off a joint and a quarter gram of methamphetamines. Now I have to take a hair follicle test for a great job. Will I pass the test? And what can I do to help ensure it doesn't show up?

Hi Nebraskaman, I found this:

6. How soon after use can a drug be detected in hair?
It takes approximately 5-10 days from the time of drug use for the hair containing drug to grow above the scalp where it can be collected.

I'm not sure what can be done, if anything, for it to not show up - short of shaving your head and that could raise suspicion itself.

When do you have to have the test?
