The farmer's almanac can be purchased from the grocery store for a relatively cheap price. The website, however, also features the "Best Time To" dates, with guides on when to cut hair, mow your lawn, et cetera. Still skeptical? Think of it this way: The moon affects the ocean tides through the creation of stronger waves. Its effect on water is undeniable, and farmers have used lunar planning for gardening for centuries. Plants are not the ocean, but they are comprised of great percentages of water. The human body is also comprised of at least 60% of our body weight.
Furthermore, women should also look into the effects the phases of the moon have on our menstrual cycle and fertility, which is something women have known for thousands of years. According to this theory, women are fertile two times out of the month/cycle, when she is actually ovulating and according to her lunar fertility phase.
I myself don't know yet if I will take heed to the idea of a best time to cut my hair according to the moon phases, but for anyone who is interested, considering a trim or big chop soon, the Farmer's Almanac lists the following days in the next sixty days as the best days to cut your hair to encourage growth.
