Sleeping With Wet Hair Weakens Scalp, Damages Hair Growth: Expert
Sleeping with wet hair after a shower does more harm than good, said dermatologist Dr. Jushya Sarin. Jushya said wet hair soften the weak strands, making them prone to breaking and falling out due to friction on pillow. Sleeping with wet hair on a regular basis can also pose greater risk as wet hair may lead to fungus and bacteria causing inflammation, Jushya said. Besides, dry scalp helps in making hair greasy and oily.
