Cutting hair on Full Moon - For the perfect cut ✂️

Many legends exist about the full moon, including the one that says its effects will enhance your hair. It would therefore be beneficial for you to have a "moon cut". This consists in sacrificing a few centimeters of your length, during a night of a full moon. And the promises are tempting: your hair would then grow faster, stronger, and more numerous. Moreover, there are a handful of convinced hairdressers in the world. These hairdressers even offer nightly sessions at these times of the year, which are always performed outdoors.

Even if the cutting hair on Full Moon thesis remains very attractive, it has never been scientifically proven. The positive influence of the moon on your hair remains an unverified belief to this day. For the majority of hairdressers, there is no ideal period! It is only recommended to cut your lengths by a few centimeters every 3 months or so, in order to avoid split ends and to give a boost to your hair.

On the other hand, it is recommended to cut them just before your summer vacation. The reason? If your ends are already damaged, they will be even more so when they come into contact with the sea, sand, or sun. But this advice is still for aesthetic reasons... Generally speaking, human hair that is in good health grows from 0.5 to 2 cm per month. And no phenomenon can change that!

A recap of the best tips for cutting your hair on a Full Moon

  • The Full Moon would be the best time to cut your hair.
  • Cutting your hair during the full moon gives it strength, thickness, and vitality.
  • The full moon is also beneficial for scalp care: hair masks, and conditioners.
  • To benefit from its effects, you will have to work on your hair between 6:00 am and 12:00 pm.

Cutting hair New Moon - Avoid getting the chop on these dates ❌

It is generally not recommended to cut your hair on a new moon day because during this phase your hair would be more fragile, thinner, and more likely to fall out. Therefore, if you want to avoid damaging your hair, it is best to avoid new moon phases. According to astrology, new moons are favorable to new beginnings, so if you want to try a new color or get a drastic haircut the new moon would be a good time to make a radical change in hairstyle.

A round-up of the essential tips for cutting your hair on a New Moon

  • The New Moon would be an unfavorable time to cut your hair.
  • Cutting your hair during the new moon would weaken it and encourage hair loss.
  • However, the new moon would be beneficial for radical changes in hairstyle: new coloring, new cut.

Do your hair mask during a crescent phase

The crescent phase of the Moon, which occurs every 2 weeks, is a regenerative phase and is the right moment to do a hair mask! It’s suggested to color your hair during these periods as your body and hair will be in its best possible condition and so your color will take noticeably better if you dye your hair during this phase.

How do you make your hair grow slower?

If you’re happy with your current style, and you’re looking to cut your hair in order to keep it at a desired length for as long as possible, you’ll have to do so during a waning period. This phase is in fact known to slow down growth. The waning period is the phase between the Full Moon and the New Moon and is said to be the calmest phase. If you cut your hair during the waning moon, it will grow back less quickly. This lunar phase is therefore ideal if you want to keep your short or plunging bob longer. The waning moon is also the best time to treat and moisturize your scalp.

Susan Taylor’s insights: When to cut your locks

To summarize briefly:
Full Moon: excellent time to cut your hair
New Moon: don't cut your hair
Rising Moon phase: haircut for long hair
Waning Moon phase: haircut for short hair
