Spears' Shears: Conspiracy Theory Forms

An urban legend is already forming around the idea that Britney Spears shaved off her hair to avoid detection of her prior drug use. My first thought on hearing this was, but doesn't she have other hair? Yes, of course, but The Explainer of Slate explained it to me.
Head hair grows about half an inch every month, so a woman with shoulder-length hair carries around a two-year record of her drug use.
So, presumably, Brit didn't need to shave off her "eyebrows" as her drug use was in the past, and eyebrow hair is not so long, or at least we hope it isn't.
