The Lunar Hair Chart
For centuries humans have followed the moon’s cycles to determine when to plant and harvest crops; this same practice can be applied to your hair with the Lunar Hair Chart. The full moon, in particular, is the most powerful day to your hair for a particular cutting goal. This month’s cutting goal is lengthen.
How Does it Work?
Overtime, the ends of your hair becomes frail or damaged, resulting in split ends that stunt hair growth. Cutting your hair on regular intervals removes these split ends and allows your hair to grow at a faster rate. We recommend cutting your hair at least four times a year–on the equinoxes and solstices. Some may even want to cut their hair every month or every other month if they want to follow a particular cutting goal. Check our our previous blog post on how to cut your own hair using the blunt snip method.
- Avoid using blow dryers or heated styling tools as these further damage your hair and result in more split ends.
- Avoid any silicone-based shampoos. Normal shampoos are filled with plastics that coat hairs and stunt growth. Instead, choose a silicone and sulfate free shampoo.
- Condition your ends using a natural conditioner to moisturize, strengthen and reduce breakage.
- Drink lots of fluids. Water naturally detoxes the body and scalp and a healthy scalp allows for healthy hair growth.
