How often, and when, should I cut my hair if I am trying to grow it?

Are you thinking of trimming the ends or taking off a few inches, so your locks grow back quickly and in a healthier state? 

If so, the most opportune time to cut your hair is during a crescent moon: this is the stage between the New Moon and the Full Moon. If you cut your hair during this expansive phase, your hair will undoubtedly grow back quicker!

Crescent Moon Phase

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.

Astrologist Susan Taylor's insights:

'The effects of the Moon on hair could cause it to grow back more or less quickly depending on the care given to it in accordance with different lunar phases. Some hairdressers are convinced of the benefits of a "moon cut", despite the fact that its effects are not scientifically proven.'


If I want thicker hair, when should I cut it?

For those worried about the thickness of their hair, your solution once again lies with the lunar phases. Simply wait for the Moon to be in transit during Leo or Virgo, as these will be the optimal days to cut your hair if you’re looking for thicker regrowth.

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 - a phase 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.
