To sum up the Moon Maintenance Plan:
Coordinating your hair activity with the appropriate moon phase and sign will have you working with the cycles instead of against. Since certain activities are better suited to certain times, take advantage of the energy that will make the task flow easier.
If you choose to grow your hair long, cut hair during the first phase of the moon when the light is increasing. To further enhance the growth of your hair, cut it when the moon is in Cancer, Taurus, Scorpio, Capricorn, or Pisces. To increase thickness, cut during these times but also during the Leo moon. If you hate cutting your hair every 4-6 weeks then choose the second phase of the moon when it is decreasing in light. Cutting when the moon is in a fire or air sign like Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius, also prevents excessive growth.
my mom's side does it by the new moon. as they always cut for length, this is supposedly to help your hair grow as the moon waxes. i've never heard of cutting by astrological phases before, but whatever floats your boat!
i'm really not too sure how well either of them work... i just know my family swears by it...
i stick with the description "OS thready thick"
my curly fro now is at collarbone when straightened.... basically the length i had when i started transitioning! hooray for growth!!! =)
