Astrology: Cutting Your Hair By The Phases Of The Moon

You may not be a believer, but astrology is my passion. Thirty plus years ago I discovered Linda Goodman's Sun Sign Astrology book quite by accident.

I was instantly addicted. I could not put that Sun Sign book down until I had read every word about every sign. I don't impose my astrological beliefs on anyone else. If you don't believe in astrology or agree with my theories, I respect that.

However, I've devoted many years to the study and practice of astrology. I have learned that, for me, astrology touches every aspect of my life.

I use astrology whenever I can. I have been performing astrological readings and charts for many years which only confirms my belief in this ancient science.

As many of you know, I have been growing my hair long for over 20 years. My hair has grown to hip length and is holding steady. Pictures of my long blonde mane are included in the Gallery section of this Web site.

With everything else....I try to use astrology to give me the "edge" or the advantage. Many years ago I researched the impact that the Moon might have on helping my hair grow thicker or faster or stronger.

I researched the published astrology literature to find out the theories behind the Moon and how it is supposed to impact the hair.

Some astrologers believe the Moon has marginal impact on hair growth. Other astrologers believe it has a major impact.

I personally have spent over 24+ years experimenting with the moon and recording the results.

I have no doubt in my mind that using the phases of the Moon for growing your hair works. I have personally used the theory and have experienced measurable results.

I have received a lot of email from visitors of this site asking about the theories behind the moon and hair growth.

I hope you all enjoy the information. Of course I can't guarantee you any results. I can just share my findings and theories with you.

Rules For Using Moon Phases For Hair Care

Listed below are my personal Moon rules for hair:

To Grow Your Hair Faster

Quarter Moon by Maxpate All Rights Reserved.

Trim ends during the New Moon or during the First Phase of the Moon when the light of the moon is increasing.

The best astrological signs for faster, longer and healthier hair is the New Moon in Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces.

When possible start a hair growth program with the New Moon in one of the most beneficial signs. Start by trimming a tiny bit of hair from your ends during the New Moon or First Phase of the Waxing (increasing) Moon.

These dates are also helpful if you are starting a specific hair growth program and want faster results.

This would include starting a hair vitamin program (HairTopia Hair Vitamin Facts) or a new hair healthy diet, exercise, scalp or other hair care program designed to get your hair stronger and longer as quickly as possible.

To Grow Your Hair Thicker & Fuller

Trim ends during the Full Moon especially when the Full Moon is in Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces. The Full Moon in Leo is especially beneficial since Leo is the sign of the Lion which is born with a full lush mane.

To Grow Your Hair Slower

The Moon Covered By Clouds by Code1name All Rights Reserved.

Trim ends after the Full Moon when the light is decreasing. This is true during the 3rd and 4th quarters of the Waning Moon.

This is especially true when the Moon is in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius, which also slows growth.

To Grow Hair Bushier

To Treat Your Hair Chemically (Color or Perm)

Have chemical applications (straightening, relaxing, color, perm) applied during the Moon in Aquarius for the absolute best results.

There are other Moon phases that you can use for hair care.

At this point I only want to cover the very simple process of cutting the hair for faster, thicker or bushier growth. I have thrown in the chemical processing as a general reference point.
