Lunar hair care principles for conditioning call for specific astrological signs.
Not everyone agrees exactly on when to condition hair with a lunar hair chart. Some say to apply moisture when the moon is in a fertile or semi-fertile class of sign presumably with the theory of “like begets like” with the property of absorption. However, many more experts on lunar hair care vote to add the wetness during barren and semi-barren signs.
Two semi-barren signs stand out for their dry, hot classes with the quality of Fire: Aries and Sagittarius.
The next two barren signs of Gemini (wet, Air) and Leo (dry, Fire) are added. Both are classed as hot.
Aquarius is added for classes of semi-barren and hot.
You may wonder, as I did, why not Virgo? While it is in the barren class, its Earth quality leaves it out. Virgo is also classes as cold which does not fit with the other hot astrological signs.
Why not Libra? It is Air like Gemini, but is semi-fertile and already classed with moisture. Libra does not offer the required qualities of the other signs.
One thing that all agree on for lunar hair care is that the best phase is the waxing moon as the right time of the moon cycle to condition hair.
Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius are the qualified astrological signs to choose during the waxing moon for conditioning hair.
Specific dates for conditioning hair with these signs are in the Lunar Hair 2017 book on Amazon.
