Topic: do it yourself haircut really works
Hi everyone...I've been following the lunar haircutting chart - getting my haircut every month on the lengthening days. (I used to have hair down to hips, but got it cut last fall, sold it, and donated the money to a charity that restores vision to leprosy patients....Unfortunately, I didn't know about MM or lunar haircutting when I got it cut. Though it was something that I wanted to do, I really missed my long hair - it truly was a sacrifice to give it - and now for the past year have been totally committed to optimizing my hair growth (I detox weekly, use only MM and follow all instructions to the letter!!). SO, on the proper dates, I was going to the hair salon and getting it cut. This past August 2nd I decided to try cutting it myself. It is now past my shoulders (!!) and I want to tell everyone how EASY it was to cut it myself.
I got my hair completely wet and combed through it (its very thick and wavy), I then parted it in the middle, brought both sides around to the front of my shoulders and took haircutting scissors and did a cut on each side. I had to "work" the scissors a little to get through the thickness, but I really felt like it was done right this time. At the salons they make a big deal of bringing up sections of hair then cutting, then letting down section, cutting, etc...I did two cuts and my hair has never felt better.
Anthony, maybe you can shed more light on why it makes such a difference to cut ones own hair, but I really noticed a complete difference - contrasted to the times I was at the salon. I took off a little more than 1/2".
So just wanted everyone to be encouraged to try it. I like the fact that I felt so energized after the cutting. Hopefully it will continue to encourage a fast growth - looking forward to the next snip in September.
