Do you want stronger hair? Longer? Thicker? Follow the moon! Just as there are ideal times to plant, weed, and reap, there are best times to cut, or “harvest,” your hair to achieve your hair goals. The Lunar hair chart was created by Morocco Method founder, Anthony Morrocco, who has devoted over 50 years to the art and ancient hair care techniques.
Following the lunar hair chart means scheduling haircuts to align with moon cycles, giving your hair a boost towards your desired outcome. You can time your cuts to benefit your hair in several ways: lenghtening, strengthening, thickening, beautifying (body/volume), or root work. By following the ebb and flow of lunar astrology, you can harness the moon's energy to have a powerful effect on the growth and maintenance of your hair.
You shouldn't be intimidated by the lunar hair chart, nor do you have to visit your salon or barbershop to take advantage of the moon's timing. With Morrocco Method's all-natural products and tools, you can accomplish your hair goals right from home.
get the right tools
You can order your lunar haircutting kit from Morrocco Method to insure that you have all of the necessary items. Each kit includes haircutting scissors, a rattail comb that doubles as a tool to section off your hair, and a copy of the lunar hair chart. You'll also receive access to a video series that features a holistic hair expert teaching you how to practice sustainable haircutting.
use the right technique
Doing your own lunar haircut isn't as challenging as you might think. First, brush your hair out. It's extremely important to brush your hair well, and regularly. If you need a quality hair brush, check out this boar bristle brush.
After brushing, dampen your hair – not so it's dripping wet, just damp throughout.
Now you're ready to cut! Part your hair down the middle, and make sure you have a clip or hair tie to help section off your hair. Using the comb from your haircutting kit, section off your hair vertically. Take the first section, and while keeping your head level, pull the hair straight down to the floor. When you get to the end, pull a very small amount of hair and snip off the end. Repeat that for each section of hair. When you're done, you can make sure your cut is even by comparing the lengths of the left and right sections.
Remember to be patient, go slow, and make small cuts. You don't have to cut very much hair to see the effects. The purpose is not to cause drastic change, unless you want to. Even the smallest cuts (think: 1/16 inch) send a signal up your hair shaft and into your root, to start progress toward your desired hair goal.
boost your cut with the right products
To maximize the effects you want to see on your hair, you can boost your cut with the right Morrocco Method products. A day or two before your cut, you can use an elixir that corresponds to the season and hair goal. For example, if you want to beautify or strengthen your hair this spring or summer, apply the Golden Diamond Crystal Elixir or Silver Grapeseed Elixir 24-48 hours before your cut. Let it settle in overnight, adding energy to get dormant roots to produce more hair.
After your cut, we recommend following up with a conditioner that will even further boost your hair toward your goal. The Diamond Crystal Mist is a leave-in conditioning spray that will gently hydrate your hair and energize and restore your scalp. The Sapphire Volumizing Mist will add luster and shine while volumizing your hair. For a wash-out conditioner, we recommend the Pearl Essence Creme Rinse, which will reduce breakage and promote healthy, smooth hair.
When choosing products to complement your cut, make sure you are using natural products that won't damage your hair and detract from your desired outcome. Morrocco Method products are 100% natural, raw, paleo, sulfate-free, and gluten-free, with wildcrafted ingredients you can actually read. Their goal is to take the worry out of your hair care routine, and keep your hair and body healthy.
