I've heard that if you cut your hair on a full Moon, your hair grows healthier and faster. Is this true?

Question: I've heard that if you cut your hair on a full Moon, your hair grows healthier and faster. Is this true?

Answer: According to folklore, if hair is cut during the Moon's waxing phase (between new and full), growth is encouraged. The opposite will occur if hair is cut during the waning phase (the day after the Moon is full to the day before it's new).
