    Wink farmers almanac . growing your hair

    Hi
    my grandma would use the farmers almanac to trim her hair every month .
    she had hair that went past her butt . she wore it in braids wrapped around her head .
    I remember sitting and brushing her LONG hair when I was a little girl .
    I just got my hair cut and it is SHORT . she had to cut off so much because my hair was so frizzy and the dead ends were awful .
    I just went on line and checked the farmers almanac and i had it cut on the day that you want NO hair growth ! ~ figures just my luck )
    does anyone here use the almanac " best days " for tips on your hair .
    I am going to give it a spin ..
    what the heck ..
    debbie

    Your hair only grows as fast as your fingernails. Trimming it only gets rid of the breakage from split ends. It does not make your hair grow faster. That is an old wives tale. Start using a good conditioner after you wash it. This will help the hair stay elastic and help with breakage.

    Although hair, skin, and nails have a similar composition, hair grows the fastest, then skin, with nails growing the slowest of the three. Even though trimming the hair does not affect the actual growth rate, hormone surges do, and grandma's hormones and the almanac were probably in sync.

    Only vegetables and plants grow well due to new/ full moons because the light reflection of the moon gives the plants extra light during clear nights. It has nothing to do with hair growth.

    Shaving doesn't make hair grow thicker nor faster. It's an optical illusion. Hair naturally grows with a tapered end. When you shave, you cut off that fine tapered end, leaving a blunt stub, without it's tapered end. The diameter of the hair didn't change, just the length.

    I'm beginning to think nothing has an effect on hair and it's all pretty much genetic. I knew a girl who had anorexia and she looked like the walking dead, yet her hair was long, thick and shiny. Right now i work with two people who both have very bad diets, smoke like chimneys and drink loads of coffee and don't bother to look after themselves, yet their hair isn't falling out and they manage to have nice hair.
