    Default Morrocco's Lunar Haircutting Charts

    Does anyone use that chart to trim their hair? What do you think about it? I figured it can't hurt to try, eh? What does "root work" mean? If I want to reduce shedding, do I go for "root work" or "thicken"?

    Oh here's the link: http://www.morroccomethod.com/lunar.shtml

    Hmmm...

    Well, I don't really understand how cutting your hair on one day opposed to another could thicken it or beautify it, or cause it to behave differently. But, people have believed it can for a long time; in the Farmer's Almanac, there's a hair cutting chart modelled after moon cycles. There's no way it could hurt, though! I'd say give it a try. I may as well.

    that's pretty cool! What can it hurt? I'll give it a try.
    I know that there are many people (myself included) that follow the lunar/solar phases for the rest of their daily lives. What can it hurt to add one more?

    Sapphire-O, I have used the Morrocan cutting chart, but I did not notice any change.
    (The days that I trimmed were on the "lengthening" days.)

    But if you need a trim, you could definately go ahead and use one of those days.

    As far as the "root work" days, I always understood that to mean if you were wanting to thicken your roots, in case you've had some thinning going on.

    I did it once on a trim hair for length day. Needless to say it didn't work. Unless it takes a few months, because I started growing like nuts when summer hit. I chalk that up to the hot weather though

    sapphire-o, thanks for posting this link. I am long overdue for a trim and I think I may follow this chart and see if it helps with my thinning.
    I will be watching the thread to see if you got a response to your question regarding "root work".

    Good luck.

    Even if it doesn't work it helps stop the impulse cutting, you have to wait for a certain day or risk cutting on a retarding day ! Nobody wants that!

    in my country there's the belief that if you want your hair to grow fast, trim it in waxing moon. if you want your hair to grow slow, trim in waning moon. old wives' tale, sorta, but everyone I know follows that

    My hairdresser swears by this. She's been in the business for over 20 years, and is adamant that she sees a difference for her long term clients that follow it vs those who don't. I indulge her, as it makes her so happy.
