Cutting your Hair according to the Lunar Phase can help it grow Faster and Healthier

moon lunar phases

In my culture it is believed that cutting your hair according to the lunar phase can help grow it longer and quicker or slow down the process. The lunar phase goes through many stages from the new moon to the full moon, but the four mentioned below are the ones to take heed of if you plan on letting your hair grow or just want to improve the condition of your strands:

New Moon: It is advisable that you do NOT cut your hair during this lunar phase. It is in the most harmful stage, any cut during this period will worsen the condition of your locks.

Crescent Moon: A crescent is a thin sliver of light that forms a shape similar to a banana. It is the stage between the new moon and half moon. This is the BEST time to cut your hair IF you want your hair to grow longer and quicker. It’s recommended one day before this stage or the day of to cut your ends ONLY. On the day of you will see best results if you cut your hair anywhere from 12 noon until 6:00 pm, due to the rising of the moon, thus increasing lunar attraction.

Gibbous Moon: Almost full, about 3/4. If you have a new short style and want to keep it that length it is best to cut your hair during this time. However, if you want your hair to grow longer and faster during this phase the hair will NOT grow, it will SLOW down the process. If you enjoy having long beautiful hair do NOT cut your hair during this stage. This is the stage most of us AVOID.

Full Moon: This moon phase is favorable for those who have dry, damaged, or coarse hair, since it will help the hair grow healthily. It should be cut the day before this stage or the day of from 6:00 am until 12 noon or in the evening from 6:00 pm until midnight. This phase will improve the texture, but it will NOT help the hair grow fast.

Of course, this is seen as a superstition, but Latina women tend to have beautiful hair for a reason (and I’m giving our secrets away!). Please do a search for lunar phase calendars on the desired month and day you plan to cut your hair for optimal results. This may or may not be true, but my mother and grandmother swear by it! And of course, I’m keeping the tradition.

XOXO

    In NYC, the full moon is scheduled to happen at 11:32 PM on the night of January 15. So when should I get my trim to help it gain thickness — it’s already long, but I want more thickness??
