What is the reason for this? Do you practice?
I don’t remember exactly, but the meaning is approximately the same that menstruation is associated with the moon and hair also grows with it (there is an opinion that you only need to cut your hair during a certain phase of the moon, I don’t remember which one, I don’t adhere to all this ) and supposedly, after shearing during critical days, hair does not fit, grows, etc. Do not look for logic in this, it is not here.
I do not adhere to me, I don’t see any connection here, and in general I don’t care about such superstitions. It’s not the stone age in the yard.
Yes, I adhere to this recommendation. Even if you do not pay attention to superstition, and reasoning from the point of view of logic, then during menstruation, the immunity of women is weakened (this is a scientifically proven fact). Therefore, during this period, it is generally better for a woman to visit various shops, salons, etc., less so as not to catch any virus.
Also, during the haircut, the hairdresser soaks the client's hair with water, and after the haircut, it does not always dry well, therefore, due to a temporary decrease in immunity, the woman is at risk of catching a cold. And not necessarily in the winter: in the summer in some salons the air conditioners are turned on at full capacity, and the visitors sit under a stream of cold air with a wet head. I saw it myself personally and it upsets me.
In addition, many women feel unwell during critical days. What can be the joy of visiting a beauty salon, if during this period you want to curl up on the couch, do not see anyone and do not go anywhere?
It’s not for nothing that in the customs of some nations - to liberate women these days from physical labor. Well, "as a bonus," it is also prohibited for them to entertain themselves at this time.
Another point: the critical days for most women fall on either the full moon or the new moon. During these phases of the moon is better not to cut. It is recommended to do the haircut either on the growing Moon (so that the hair grows better in the future), or on the decreasing one (so that the hair grows more slowly and the hairstyle keeps the shape longer). The influence of the moon is also a scientifically proven fact, because it affects all life and even lifeless on the planet.
