How many times have you gone to bed with wet hair?
If this happens to be your habit, read on to find out why you should go out of it as soon as possible.
1# Wet hair supports the proliferation of fungi
The pillow is an ideal place for the growth of a wide range of bacteria because it collects dead skin cells and dust mites. If you add wet hair and warmth to this, you get the perfect environment for the development of pesky fungi.
2# Wet hair results in headaches
You probably didn’t know this, but your body temperature decreases to the temperature of the room where you sleep in the first stages of sleep, while it increases in the REM stage. As your hair is wet, the temperature of your head can’t adjust to your body temperature which can cause severe headaches that can keep you awake in the middle of the night.
3# Wet hair leads to split ends
Wet hair is particularly prone to splitting, especially when it rubs against the pillow. This friction damages your hair and causes it to split.
