We are all familiar with the sentence- “Don’t go to bed with wet hair” that our mothers used to tell us constantly. But is this true or just a myth and our mothers’ fear?
How indeed is harmful to fall asleep with wet hair? Can you catch a cold or something worse can happen?
On the Internet you can find countless articles that refer precisely to this theme, but mostly all write about one thing.
Colds are caused by bacteria and viruses, and to catch a cold you need to be exposed to them.
When you lie down with wet hair the body temperature slightly lowers, and your pillow becomes wet thus a fertile soil for fungi proliferation.
Over time you can get a fungal infection that can lower your immunity which can lead to other diseases, but at the same time certainly you will not get sick just from wet hair.
On the other hand, if we think about the aesthetic reasons why you should not sleep with wet hair, you will realize that in this way you can damage your hair.
