In my last post, Heal Your Hair: Part 1, I covered the physical aspects of healthy hair, and now today I’m going to talk to you about something that’s a bit unconventional (as if that's something new for me...LOL); the metaphysical properties of hair.
I also wanted to share a secret with you.
I made the decision to stop cutting my hair 6 months ago! It has not been cut at all since. I shared this with my Instagram community a few weeks ago, and I got so many questions about it.
So, let me explain why...
Hair was something I never really thought too much about, other than how to style it. I've mentioned on Instagram before that growing up I wanted to become a hairdresser, and I fully completed cosmetology school before graduating from high school.
I used to cut and color my hair practically every other week!
As I changed career paths, starting working on personal growth, and began living a healthy lifestyle, I became increasing more in-tune with my all parts of my body and my intuition.
During the years I struggled with chronic illness, my health was my priority.
But as these health problems started clearing up, my intuition became very clear. By then I was also working with a lot of health coaching clients, which allowed me to practice and strengthen my intuition even more. I utilized it further by really tuning into the subtle energies and messages my body was communicating to me.
One of the things I started feeling guided to do was to stop getting my hair done. I originally thought it was because of the chemicals in the hair color I was getting done, so I gradually transitioned my hair out of needing to be colored, until my natural hair color grew out. But the feeling persisted.
One day, I received these messages intuitively:
Hair holds power; it’s not just an accessory. Your hair is a part of you. It carries your history, your life experiences, and your lessons.
Hair is an energy transmitter...like a bunch of antennas. It can help raise your life-force energy, and therefore your vitality. It also enhances your intuition.
When hair is cut, it's power and energy are both diminished.
These messages really resonated with me, but I was still concerned that my hair would look unhealthy if I stopped cutting it. A few days later, this video from FullyRaw Kristina popped up on my YouTube feed. She mentions in this video a lot of similar concepts to the messages I was getting. This blew my mind, and I took it as a sign that this is something that would really benefit me! She also mentions how her hair has been extremely healthy since she stopped cutting it seven years ago. This solidified my decision to stop cutting my hair.
It has been 6 months now of letting my hair grow out, and I can honestly say that my hair has never looked or felt as healthy, vibrant, and shiny as it does now.
When you take care of yourself internally, you will have healthy hair that you don't need to cut or color. Make sure that you first heal your hair following the physical steps I outlined in Part 1, before moving on to these metaphysical aspects.
I know that this may sound super out-there, and that some of you reading this might have serious physical health problems that are of much greater priority than your hair right now.
I completely understand that, and like I said, I have been there too. But if this information is resonating with you, it could benefit you a lot!
Having a greater flow of life-force energy enhances your body's healing process.
Having heightened intuition helps you become clear-minded, decisive, and can help you feel more connected to your body, the world around you, and to a healing protocol.
Since I have a stopped cutting my hair, my intuition has been off the charts. My business has grown exponentially. I am manifesting exactly what I need. I have been super clear and focused. I have more patience. I feel so much more in-tune with myself all around. I'm actually really surprised by how good it has felt.
All of that being said, this may not be what's best for you. This is just something that has been amazing for me and I wanted to share it with you. It may or may not resonate. And who knows, I may change my mind at some point, but right now this is really working for me.
Another technique you can use to heal your hair metaphysically is positive affirmations. I wrote a whole eBook about affirmations, how they work, how to use them, and how to create your own, which you can download for free right here.
Here's a list of some affirmations you can use for your hair specifically:
“My hair is healthy, strong, and beautiful."
"I trust the process of healing my hair."
"My hair is a beautiful extension of my being, and I love to nourish it."
"When I support my physical health, I support my hair."
"I love the feeling of being in-tune with subtle energies that my hair gives me."
"My natural hair is beautiful and deserves love. I do not compare myself to others."
"I allow the true potential of my hair's health to shine through."
"I know that hair health starts on the inside, so I choose to support my body, adrenals, and liver every day."
"I release the conditioning that I need dozens of products, treatments, and other external factors in order to have healthy hair."
"My hair is the perfect fit for me. I love it just the way it is."
"I honor my hair as an extension of me by taking excellent care of it."
"My hair is a divine expression of my femininity/masculinity, and I choose to embrace that now."
