A: Test kits are mailed to you and completed in the comfort of your home. Q: How much hair do I have to cut for the sample? A: Approximately one tablespoon of scalp hair (1-1.5" long from the root) is required for the sample. A hair scale is included in each kit for assistance with measuring accuracy. Q: What if my hair is colored, can I do the test? A: The hair used for HTMA testing SHOULD NOT be dyed, bleached, or permed for a minimum of 6-8 weeks prior to sample collection. While hair growth rate varies per individual, in general, this is enough time for most to provide the 1" of untreated scalp hair required for testing. Q: How does hair compare to blood for testing? A: In comparison to blood tests which show mineral levels at the point in time the test was administered, HTMA shows overall mineral levels from a 3-month period of time. In addition, because certain minerals are INTRACELLULAR, testing the tissue provides a more accurate measurement of some minerals (e.g. 99% of magnesium is found in the tissues with only 1% found in the blood).
