There are so many myths out there in the beauty world that we are constantly trying to figure out what the difference is between fact and fiction!
If you are the kind of person who tends to go down the easier route when it comes to hair maintenace and opt to head straight to bed when you have washed your hair, you may want to rethink that...
Mic has uncovered with the help of a cosmetic and medical dermatologist just the effect that going to sleep with wet hair does.
"Sleeping with wet hair doesn't do any particular damage to the hair shafts themselves, but it does make it more likely your hair could be flat, frizzy or generally dull-looking when you wake up," says Dermatologist Jessica J. Krant.
But don't rejoice just yet...
"Each hair shaft is almost "like roof shingles" that stand up in one direction. However, when your hair is blowdried with gentle smoothing they lie flat (as long as it doesn't overheat them, of course). When you sleep with wet hair, your cuticles end up lying in different angles, thereby "reducing the reflective shine and seal of any given shaft and making it seem dirtier."
So basically if you want to maintain stunning summer locks, it's a NO from us!
