How the Moon Affects the Look and the Condition of the Tresses

Hair care and the moon phases

Tune your hair care routine in accordance with the rhythm of the moon and you will always have beautiful and healthy tresses. Many hair problems have been caused just by wrong timing. The moon affects various aspects of our lives, including the condition of our locks.

Follow this simple guide and say “good bye” to bad hair days.

Believing or not, the moon can make your hair grow faster.

Hair cutting
If you want fuller, thicker and faster growing hair, trim your tresses when the moon is waxing or on a full moon. The most favorable are the days when it passes through the zodiac signs of Leo, Virgo, and Libra.

On the contrary, if you want to keep your hairstyle longer and to slow down the growth of your locks, cut them during waning moon. Also, the waning moon will make your strands stronger.
Avoid hair cutting when the moon is in Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. When trimmed on these particular days the locks become unmanageable, the scalp gets oily very fast, and may appear dandruff. Avoid hair washing, too.
Never cut your mane on the 9th, 15th, 23rd, 29th lunar days and on lunar or solar eclipse. These are the worst days for any hair changes.

Hair Coloring
Coloring hair during a full moon ensures long-lasting color. Waxing moon and the days when the moon is in Virgo, Taurus, and Leo are good for hair coloring, too. If your scalp is sensitive, you must do this beauty procedure only when the moon passes through Taurus.

Hair curling
You will get gorgeous and long-lasting curls when the moon passes through Virgo, Libra and Leo.

Waxing moon is a good time for pampering the hair with intensive treatments and even homemade remedies. Especially, if your hair is dry or damaged, do not miss the opportunity to revive your locks the waxing moon gives us.

Full moon is the right time to make any kind of changes to your hair.
