Getting a haircut during the full moon phase - fact or fiction?
Want to have Jason Momoa's mane but your hair doesn't grow fast enough? Don't despair! Maybe the moon is the ultimate solution to grow your hair faster.
At first glance, it may sound a little strange to you that the moon has something to do with with your hair growth. Well, let me tell you, it's not as crazy an idea as it sounds!
Although to this day it is still there is still no scientific study that confirms the influence of the moon on hair growth, there are studies that try to prove it.
However, it's not the first time I've heard people tell me when to get a haircut according to the phase of the moon we are in. In truth, the influence of the gravitational force of how the moon affects both humans and animals is more of a social belief. Therefore, it can be said that (for now) it is a MYTH.
Anyway, I am going to explain to you what this theory that many people believe in consists of. After all, what have we got to lose by trying it?
According to the people who believe in this theory, although the moon is 384,400 kilometers away from the Earth, it is not far enough for us not to be affected by its gravitational force. That is, according to this social belief, the moon affects both humans and animals in our character, in the state state of mind, in our ailments and even in the growth of the nails and hair. Weird, isn't it?
So, if you have damaged, dull and dry hair cut it off in the phase of full moon to get a full head of healthier, stronger and shinier hair. If your goal is to make your hair grow faster and not healthier, let me tell you that the best moon phase to cut your hair is the crescent.
However, avoid cutting your hair in the new moon phase, since during these days the moon is between the sun and the earth, so it is not seen. According to this social belief, this means only one thing: absence of energy, lunar energy. Or to put it in a different way: that it brings no benefit to your hair!
What do you think of this social belief? Although I still don't believe 100% in this theory, the next time I make an appointment at the barber's I'll look at the lunar calendar just in case, lest I cut my hair during the new moon phase and it doesn't grow at all! Anyway, what have we got to lose by trying? Hair of course not!
