However, I do understand and believe that certain occurings in nature, and that includes the moon, DO have effects on us humans. Just the power of these effects is debatable..we know the moon can make you sleep badly, but can it fix your hair??
Here is what I think:
Our body's cycle responds to the moon much like the sea responds with tide and flood or the earth responds to it. Hair is also on a cycle, for example the growth cycle - it is known that on some days your hair can have a growth spurt, while on others it may be a bit slower. If you measure monthly it should still be the same amount, but you may find that by mid month..you have not yet grown half of your average amount.. or the opposite, more.
So thats where I can see trimming at a certain time being beneficial. If your hair is having a growth spurt it can get uneven easily, trimming at that certain time will take care of that asap and help you grow more even.
Those are just speculations, because really noone has ever explained scientifically how the moon affects hair, but I am working on providing a more realistic look on this method than your average "moon witch" ;)
What does the moon calendar say about hair?
~"Hair is only to be cut on Leo-Days.Comment:
If this happens during the waning moon (reducing) the hair will grow back more even.
If this happens during the waxing moon (gaining) the hair will grow faster.
Full Moon Days are also good.
Over time hair will be more at balance, the hair texture betters and hair loss is reduced when following that method." *
As far as "more even" and "faster" growth goes, I would say that you could just be working with the bodys cycle trimming on those specific days.
A full moon day could be the perfect balance of both.
And the last sentence could be explained by faster, more even growing hair giving the impression of overall bettering, plus..I do believe it is a smart approach to keep the balance by going with your bodys cycle, which can be affected by the moon.
I have been trimming according to the moon since january and will further observe of course.
Upcoming lunar days for hair are*:
25, 26 - Trim
27, 28 - Care
