I personally have spent many years of research
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.
Here are the rules:
To Grow Your Hair Faster.
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.
To Grow Your Hair Thicker
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.
or cut your hair during the Full Moon Phase
To Grow Your Hair Slower
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
Trim or cut your hair with the Moon in Leo
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.
moon appears to wax and wane, or increase and decrease, through four distinct phases as it orbits around the earth. The cycle
from new moon to new moon takes approximately twenty-nine days. Because the moon is our closest neighbor, its movement has
significant impact on the earth and its inhabitants. In addition to the obvious changes in ocean tide, the phases of the moon
have been shown to affect planting, weight loss, growth, epilepsy, and bleeding, to name a few.
The first phase or quarter, known as the new moon, occurs when the moon's orbit aligns exactly
between the earth and the sun. The two are conjunct with one another. Because we only see the moon as it reflects light from
the sun, when the sun's light strikes the moon from behind no part of the face of the moon is visible to earth. The moon is
dark for approximately the first day of this phase. The dark of the moon is a time for reflection, not beginnings. Because
the moon orbits the earth at a faster rate than the earth orbits around the sun, within a day or two the moon will have moved
slightly out of the exact alignment and we can see the beginnings of a crescent. This is technically referred to as the new
moon. It is a time for beginnings of all kinds. The sun and the moon are in the same sign and can work together to accomplish
a task with ease.
As the moon continues to move counter-clockwise
around the earth, it will wax to a point where a quarter of the moon's face can reflect the sun's light. This is known as
the second quarter or second phase of the moon. At this point, the moon has passed the sun and has moved into a sign three
signs ahead of the current sun sign. This creates a ninety degree angle, or square, between the sun and the moon. There is
tension between the two most important heavenly bodies. The tension can be harnessed to complete whatever was started during
the first phase.
If you are observing the moon and do not know
whether the moon is waxing or waning, an easy way to tell is to determine which side of the moon is lit. If the light is on
the right hand side of the moon and the dark is on the left, the moon is waxing. If the light is on the left hand side of
the moon and the dark is on the right, it is waning.
phase, known as the third quarter, occurs when the moon has reached a point where the earth is between it and the sun. The
sun and moon are on opposite sides of the earth and are said to be in opposition. This is the full moon because the entire
face of the moon is lit by the sun's light. The sun and moon will be in signs that are one hundred and eighty degrees apart.
There is great tension between the two and the time for completion has come. Studies have shown that blood loss is greatest
during the the week before and after the full moon.
phase, before the process begins anew, is the fourth quarter. The moon has now moved past the opposition and is waning toward
the upcoming dark moon. The final ninety degree square occurs between the sun and the moon and there is a need to reflect,
draw back and restore energy before the moon loses its light completely.
