Best Days To Cut Hair For Growth | Moon Phases

Did you know there are days in a month that you can trim your hair for maximum hair growth? And it’s all according to the moon? I didn’t know until I ran across a blog post by Vee Mack of Coily Queens Rock! . In her post she suggests cutting your hair during certain moon phases to increase hair growth.

Since I’m do for a trim, I decided to try this out to see if it actually works.

Over the next few months I’ll be testing various methods to grow my hair longer. As an adult I haven’t been able to grow my hair longer then bra strap length (and that’s just in the back).

I do have a bad habit of cutting my hair too often and that’s why I decided to cut my hair only once a year from now on. I will have completed my first year next week, October 5th 2014!

This year I plan to do my yearly trim according to the moon! Hopefully, I’ll get awesome results like Vee did! To the left, you’ll find the remaining days in 2014 that are beneficial for hair cutting in order to increase hair growth.

Below you can watch a video that goes into great detail about how and if the moon effects hair growth. She gives both sides of the debate and suggests that there’s no scientific evidence that the moon effects hair growth in any way.

This was a bummer but like she said at the end of the video, there are some things that science can not explain so it couldn’t hurt to try!

What are your thoughts about this method? Do you think it’s a myth or are you willing to try it yourself? Leave your thoughts in a comment below!

9pm September 27th 2014. 

I trimmed my hair and took off approximately 1/2 inch from each of the four sections I put in my hair. It took me all of 10 minutes to do, unlike in the past when I would attempt to get each and every uneven or split hair. I just grabbed the section and ran my fingers to the very ends and clipped away all of the unruly hairs.

I followed up will my new Bringraj Hair Oil and then massaged my scalp. Tomorrow I plan to shampoo, deep condition, and then set my hair on rollers. I’m still working out my hair growth ritual but hopefully I’ll have something solid to document soon.
