For sure you have been told, at least once, in your childhood, that if you go to sleep with wet hair, you will get cold. Although the scientists claim that there are no proofs in this sense, they draw the attention that it is not healthy at all not to dry your hair before sleep.
You may wake up with headache
While sleeping, the body temperature rises. In these conditions, the increased humidity and temperature will cause you headache at awakening.
The pillows are full of mites and bacteria, taking into account that they absorb sweat, dead cells from the surface of skin, or the oils which our body secretes. When you are sleeping with wet head, even if you wrap it in a towel, you wet the pillow and create the perfect environment for the bacteria multiplication. If it happens to you to fall asleep with wet head one evening, in the morning let the pillow dry and change the bedclothes.
You weaken the strand of hair
The wet hair is more flexible and breaks easily. When you go to sleep without drying it, there are high chances to wake up with undesired results.
