Cone [27] studied the time frame of drugs appearing in hair. He administered codeine to several subjects and found that some drug appeared in the hair after 24 h. This time is too short for initial formation of the hair in the root and for that hair to emerge above the skin (generally considered 10 to 14 days). A later but larger bolus of codeine did appear in the correct time frame, which would be more supportive of the binding during hair formation. While administering the drug, sweat would contain the highest concentrations.

Anal. , 27, 135–141, 2003. With permission. Banning and Heard [69] investigated the binding of doxycycline to keratin and melanin. Dose-dependent binding of doxycycline to keratin and melanin was observed and was of similar magnitude for each. Studies in human subjects with gray hair have also shown that various drugs are detectable in both the colored (melanin rich) and white (melanin free) hair shafts of these individuals. Again, this supports the proposition that keratin and hair proteins play an important role in the binding of drugs in hair.
