. one-hundred and sixty-one (HAIR TRIMMING & WINTER PROTECTION)

10/28/2009 05:07:00 PM

I've started to think about my hair needing a trim, mostly because I find SO MANY knots in them, and I do end up snapping them off during class. Then I feel guilty, cause I know I just really hurt my hair, and even gave it more of a pathway into MORE DAMAGE and SPLIT-NESS.

So I've been searching a lot of videos on trimming hair, and many of times, I come across the idea of "trimming hair according to moon phases". I thought this was interesting and many people said it works IT REALLY WORKS!! So I thought, maybe I should try it and see what happens. It seems sort of silly, however I'm willing to try almost everything, on account of it feels as if my hair isn't growing to it's full potential.

So I went to www.hairboutique.com and read a bit about how trimming accordingly to moon phases helps you hair, and what exactly it does.


To Grow Your Hair Faster

Trim ends during the New Moon or during the First Phase of the Moon when the light of the moon is increasing.

The best astrological signs for faster, longer and healthier hair is the New Moon in Taurus,Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces.

When possible start a hair growth program with the New Moon in one of the most beneficial signs. Start by trimming a tiny bit of hair from your ends during the New Moon or First Phase of the Waxing (increasing) Moon.

These dates are also helpful if you are starting a specific hair growth program and want faster results. This would include starting a hair vitamin program (HairTopia Hair Vitamin Facts) or a new hair healthy diet, exercise, scalp or other hair care program designed to get your hair stronger and longer as quickly as possible.

Trim or cut your hair during the New Moon Phase

To Grow Your Hair Thicker & Fuller

Trim ends during the Full Moon especially when the Full Moon is in Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio,Capricorn or Pisces. The Full Moon in Leo is especially beneficial since Leo is the sign of the Lion which is born with a full lush mane.

Trim or cut your hair during the Full Moon Phase

To Grow Your Hair Slower

Trim ends after the Full Moon when the light is decreasing. This is true during the 3rd and 4th quarters of the Waning Moon. This is especially true when the Moon is in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius, which also slows growth.

To Grow Hair Bushier

To Treat Your Hair Chemically (Color or Perm)

Have chemical applications (straightening, relaxing, color, perm) applied during the Moon in Aquarius for the absolute best results.

There are other Moon phases that you can use for hair care. However, at this point I only want to cover the very simple process of cutting the hair for faster, thicker or bushier growth. I have thrown in the chemical processing as a general reference point.

*Greenwich Mean Times

The times provided in this article for the Moon Phases are listed in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

To adjust for your local time refer to a Greenwich Time Table.

As an example during non-Daylight Savings Time in the USA, New York time is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) minus 5 hours. During Daylight Savings, it is GMT -4. For Dallas, during non-daylight savings hours it is GMT-5 and GMT-4 for daylight savings times.

To find your exact local time, adjust accordingly.

Seeing as winter is approacing, I'm going to stick to what I know and try not to buy anything new and keep to my staple products. Though i did buy a different moisturizer last week for five bucks, when I should've gotten Olive Oil hair lotion, but oh well. Too late.

So my staple things for the winter - if I don't weave it or extension it up.

Olive Oil Moisturizing Hair Lotion
Castor Oil
Olive Oil (pure)
Shea Oil
Almond Oil
Glycerine&Castor Oil Spritz
Africa's Best Herbal Oil (it's iight.. smells funny though)
Fineese Conditioner for Co' washes
Mane and tail Shampoo&Cond.
Olive Oil Shampoo if I end up getting calcium build-up.
Yeah I think thats it, and Aphogee for deep cond.

Protective styles - if i dont weave it up or extension:

Twist Outs
Braid Outs
Flat Twists (which I have in now)
Single Braids

But this winter I'm leaning more towards extensions or Weaves only because, I can let the hair just be... by itself.
I was thinking of a cute style for extensions:
I would do a sort of french braids going back and making two pigtails down my back with he kind of hair you'd you for kinky-twists.
I think it would be cute, I don't know.

(Anyone have ideas for protective styles or winter protection/hair care may share.)
