I experimented with some of these beauty care routines before publishing this article and this is what I found… Firstly, I just want to point out that the mind is a powerful thing and sometimes it sees what it wants to see, so I will admit there could be some bias in my results but I do feel that it worked! When I shaved my legs during the waning Moon (after the Full Moon) I didn’t really notice much of a difference, however when I waited till the waning Moon entered one of the “slow growth” astrological signs, I really noticed a difference. I feel like my hair grew back much slower and came back finer. The only problem with this is having to wait for the Moon to enter one of those signs! This doesn’t always work out so well and would probably take some serious planning. I also experimented with cutting my hair during the waxing moon (after the New Moon) however, it was really hard to tell how fast it grew back. One thing I did notice however, was that after getting my hair cut during the waxing Moon, it definitely seemed to be shedding less and I wasn’t seeing as many clumps of hair in the drain after my shower. I know people who swear by this method and it definitely is worth trying. I am not sure if I personally would bother using it for my hair cut or nails, but for shaving, waxing and plucking, I am hooked!
