  1. I’ve been doing this for years…think I read about it first in a Linda Goodman book (probably Star Signs). It definitely works for me; my hair grows from 1/2″ to 3/4″ every month. 😉

  2. Yes! I have also done this and recommended it to other people for a long time. I am lazy and don’t like to get haircuts so I try to get them when the Moon is waning so my hair grows more slowly.

    Also I read something recently by Dana Gerhardt, that she always colors her hair when the Moon is full because the hair is more absorbent at that time.

    Thanks! I knew there was a trick that I’ve been missing. I’ve noticed that my fingernails grew a lot during this last Full Moon. Don’t even try to ask for a conventional haircut during a Uranus transit!

  4. To grow thicker hair, the site says to “trim or cut your hair during the Full Moon Phase”. QUESTION: doesn’t a full moon occurs at a specific time? So should this be done “leading up” to the full moon… or “right after” the full moon? THANKS for any help! REALLY want to try this! =)

  5. It’s interesting but I don’t understand how that works, because hair grows from the root so it doesn’t seem like cutting the ends which are technically dead should have an effect. Maybe it’s the ritual aspect of getting hair trimmed at those times. The intention plus timing is causing the results?

  6. Hi Elsa,
    I have cut my hair this morning…myself…I have recently discovered that it is not worse than going to the hairdresser…even better…and far less expensive…and I really enjoy my new hairdresser skills…
    I have Venus and Jupiter trine my ascendant: this must help…I always try to cut or tan my hair while Moon is trine to my natal Jupiter (and then to venus)(I don’t look at phases of the moon: a good job is worth lasting a long time…)and it usually works: I am always happy with the result…lol
    But this morning the moon was transiting my 5 House (using placidus system)trine to my Saturn: it finally went well…well… I am waiting comments of my colleagues right now…
    Greetings from Paris…the city of fashion…!

    1. Monica – do you have a website you recommend going to that shows when the moon trines your natal Julpter/Venus? 🙂

  7. Dear Elsa,
    Im curently struggling to grow my hair, I’m only 20 years old, but my hair growth rate is about 1/4 to 1/2″ per 2 months, probably due to the troumendous chemichal toture, it became very brittle and prone to breakage, fortunatly I’m following a healthy regime for my hair. I was just wondering wyn would it be best for me to cut my hair in order for it to grow longer healthier faster ( I know I’m asking for a lot, but its very frastrating to see it grow an inch every 4 months and see 3 inchs break everyday), knowing that I was born on 12/14/87 at around 6am, please let me know if you ate able to help. * i love your site, keep up the great work!
    your help is greatly appreciated.
    forever greatful,

  9. Haircuts via moon transits?? no thanks, I have control over when I cut my hair, not the moon. I’m much to Saturnian and earthy for that! lol.. 🙂
