I’ve heard of the saying about cutting your hair with the New Moon for growth so I’m thinking about waiting to start my next latching session with the first day of the New Moon which is the eve of Feb 24. I had been starting around the 14-15th of the month. Why not? This I think will be another step in aligning my life more in tune with natures cycles.
I’ve been latching on a 4 week time frame since I seem to have too much (Universe, please don’t think I’m complaining…I’m ecstatic that it’s growing way faster than when it was loose!!) new growth for just one rotation. ‘Been using the 4 point rotation but I’m thinking of switching to the 3 point. Anyway, with more new growth (yay!!) it takes twice as long to do each row. My reasoning is that the least amount of entries that need to be made the better. thereby decreasing the chances of entering the same hole twice or more. Also the more area I can move through when I work on it helps my patience level and sense of accomplishment.
Though I am low maintenance, I do prefer a more tailored/manicured look, hence my choice of latching my new growth instead of twisting or freeforming. By DIYing I save money and I can work on my own schedule. It takes me about a week to finish once I start but I bet I could get it done in 2-3 days. I’m usually not in the mindset to work on it more than 2-3 hours at a time though I have gone longer some days and even shorter on others.
Until next time,
Peace, Love & Laughter 😉
My grandmother was a large believer of moon phases, and cut her hair, made investments, planted flowers, etc according to it. I wish I had paid more attention when I was growing up. She was so intelligent on so many different levels. She would cut my hair also during certain times and my hair was always long and thick. You are doing a wonderful job on your hair and I enjoy your blog as well. I’ve learned a lot from it.
With channel cats I use a lighted bobber and you can use either a chemical light
attached to your bobber or there are several battery operated
lighted bobbers that work well too. It does not require acidic
agent for the reaction to take place and is commonly used with neutral-tasting ingredients,
such as milk. The articles and segments written on its pages are written by fishing aficionados and specialists themselves.
