Do you love to wash hair at night?
So, what exactly happens when you sleep with wet hair?
The simplest answer is that you are not allowing natural drying and lifting of hair roots. You may know that tip where you put hair in the bun to lift the hair roots; to gain more volume. This won’t happen with wet hair follicles. Instead of drying and lifting of roots, the follicles will get flattened and greasy in the morning. That’s why in morning your hair style will look like a bunch of limpy hair!
If still, you have to wash hair at night, you gotta be extremely careful. As you cannot tug or pull or brush the wet hair. Similarly, while sleeping you should toss or turn in the bed. Otherwise, you are increasing the risk of over-stretching the hair shaft, which leads to severe hair damage.
In Asian countries, where in hot weather, heat goes on its extreme and due to less resources or electricity shortage, lower class or lower middle class suffer the hot weather more than others. In such situations, thousands of people adopt the habit of washing hair at night or taking bath at night to lessen the heat. Maybe, it can be best solution for the timely heat problem but it is really worst for your hair.
And the saddest part, this result is guaranteed with any kind of shampoo. So, don’t think about trying newer or expensive branded shampoos. Whether it is volumizing shampoo or skin conditioner, you will end with greasy hair in the morning if washed the night before, and slept with wet hair. This condition becomes worst in the case of long hair! So, crucial warning for long hair ladies and gents.
You must be thinking, there should be the way to deal with it! Honestly, you should avoid it. But in desperate times, make sure to dry the hair before going to bed. If blow dry is not possible, at least towel dry them!
