Lunar Hair Tip #3 – Faster Growth

posted in: Lunar Hair Chart | 0


Are you trying to grow your hair out faster? Lunar hair cutting principles hold that the prime criteria for faster growth after a haircut or trim is the waxing moon phase.

Lunar Hair Chart: find out which signs work for faster growth.












The simple act of cutting hair according to the lunar rhythm has the longest history in folklore. From Roman historical books depicting ancient knowledge up to 19th century rural America, shared wisdom was passed from generation to generation by word of mouth and in printed almanacs along with gardening and husbandry advice for the homestead farmer. Mere superstition faded out over the generations to leave us with principles to prove out with modern experience.

History records that sheep farmers, whose livelihood depended on knowing such things, found that cutting wool during the waxing moon ensured strong growth for the next cut.

Can we compare sheep’s wool to human haircuts? One answer from this historic information applied to human hair may be that a trim or cut removes the split ends and produces a clean, blunt end. Once the breakage is gone, the hair appears stronger as it grows at its normal rate. There are strong debates on both sides of this issue.

For seeing faster growth after a haircut or trim, the moon phase is the most quoted criteria for lunar hair cutting , which is the waxing moon. Half the reputable sources then agree that any New Moon day and the beginning of the waxing phase during the week after the New Moon has the best qualification.

New Moon week is the best part of the waxing phase for

seeing faster growth after a haircut or trim.

That’s where the agreement ends.

When all of the votes for astrological signs are tallied from western folklore and reputable astrologers, the class of fertile and semi-fertile signs that are cold win out for this category of seeing faster growth during the waxing moon. These signs are Capricorn, Taurus and Scorpio.

Another semi-fertile sign of Libra is included for this category.

Choose both the waxing moon phase (especially New Moon Week) and the signs of either Capricorn, Taurus or Scorpio for the best results.

Lunar Hair Care for Spring

posted in: Lunar Hair Chart | 0

Let’s talk about lunar hair care for Spring events with family and friends that are coming soon. A special welcome to you if you arrived here from the referral in the Lunar Hair 2017 ebook.

Lunar Hair Tip #1 - Spring Events

Passover April 11 and Easter April 16 arrive in about a month and you are sure to have an invitation to a traditional family affair or a casual get-together with some close friends. Imagine that you arrive to the house and wait in the car or stand outside the door for a moment or two before going inside.

You go through the mental checklist of your outfit: shoes, colors, accessories. Yes, you think, the style is just right for the occasion. What else? Oh, yes, the crowning glory of your hair sparkles in the sunshine! You toss it or smooth it and it feels just right to your touch and against your neck. It’s a good hair day! You feel great! What happened? It may be that you picked the right day for your hair appointment by using the moon signs and phases.

Using the moon cycle for hair care is nothing new. Guided by the natural cycles of nature, men and women in earlier times lived daily with the movement of the moon and seasons throughout the year. The basic concepts about the moon cycle in the natural world are as valid today as they were centuries ago.

Both of the traditional spring holidays are timed according to the moon phase:

Passover occurs on or near the day of the full moon, which is April 11 this year.

Easter, on April 16, falls on the first Sunday after the full moon following the spring equinox.

Whether you are new to the notion of using the moon signs and phases to time a hair treatment, or a big fan of lunar timing, here are a few tips about picking the dates for an appointment to get ready for these events. Some people need a couple of weeks to let a treatment set in and others look and feel the best with a quick hair cut before an event. There is a perfect moon sign or moon phase day for either choice.

The one astrological caution for this time of year is that Venus retrograde started on March 4 which calls for conservative choices with appearance and purchases to prevent disappointment later on. Stick to familiar styles until Venus goes direct April 15. You will be glad you did not buy that new designer outfit with the bright colors or radically changed your haircut during this time.

To grow hair faster with the moon phases, choose to cut your hair on the New Moon or on one of days of the waxing phase before the next full moon. Particular astrological signs are favored as well. During the waxing moon in March, these signs occur on March 29-30 in Taurus, March 31 in Gemini, and April 4 in Leo, and April 9 in Libra.

Some people prefer to grow hair out more slowly to preserve a style or chemical treatment. In this case, have the hair cut during the waning moon phase, after the full moon. Again, certain astrological signs give a more favorable aspect during the waning moon.

The week before either holiday offers several choices for cuts and styling according to the moon phases. Happy results are almost guaranteed on Saturday April 1 with the Gemini Moon trine Jupiter for color, condition and a haircut. Color, condition, and cut hair on the most favored days of the April 4-6 Leo waxing moon, but no perm!

There are plenty of good conditioning days with the moon cycle before the spring holidays:
Time zone: PST
Mar 29 ARI before 3a–BEST
Mar 31 GEM after 12p noon–BEST
Apr 2 GEM before 6a–BEST
Apr 4 LEO after 3p–BEST
Apr 6 LEO after 4a–BEST

Special events are sometimes stressful for the emotions, especially when we see our friends or family just a few times during the year. Taking the time to make a finished outward presentation of style helps a positive attitude on the inside shine through to almost guarantee a good time at the party. Now you step through the doorway to arrive at the party with confidence, knowing that you look and feel the best that you can be for the holiday event, with a little help from the moon phases.
