Best Lunar Hair Calendar for May 2014

latest6When I was a teenager my mom told me that if I wanted to grow my hair it was best to cut it during a Full Moon. At the time I didn’t believe her; however, over time, I started hearing stories that some farmers follow the lunar calendar to grow crops, that the sea tides are affected by the moon; it made me wonder, when is the best time to grow my hair according to the moon?

Ancient farmers noticed the effects the moon phases did to the crops. This is called agricultural astrology and is one of the oldest forms of astrology. It was probably the first use humans made of lunar cycles. They believe that:

  • The Waning Moon brings fair weather (dry environment)
  • The New Moon and first quarter, or waxing phases, are considered fertile and wet
  • The new and first-quarter phases are considered good for planting above-ground crops, putting down sod
  • From full Moon through the last quarter is the best time for killing weeds, thinning, pruning, mowing, cutting timber, and planting below-ground crops.
  • The time just before the full Moon is considered particularly wet, and is best for planting during drought conditions

So how does the Moon relates to hair: Because our bodies are made of 60% of water, it is believed the moon also has some effects on our body; especially hair. The moon phases affect he hair like this:


  • The New Moon phase is best for accelerated hair growth, the body is replenishing its resources, expending less energy and striving to obtain its optimal health peak.
  • The Waxing moon period will promote hair growth, trim, cut hair
  • During the full moon, trim ends to grow thicker and fuller hair
  • From Gibbous phase (after full moon) to the last quarter, Waning phase, is best to remove unwanted hair and retain hair shape as hair grows slower, but beware of cutting too much the body begins to discard the excess nutrients it has stored which could result in thinner hair.

There are a few websites with a lunar hair calendar; However the best one is this one:
