Have you ever been told (by well meaning aunties and grannies) that you should not go to bed after a shower? We have all heard the old adage that if you sleep with wet hair, it will give you a cold! But is it true?

Experts say that you cannot catch a cold from being cold. This is because a cold is a viral infection speread by a virus. It has nothing to do with the temperature of your room or the condition of your hair. So if you take a shower before going to bed, don't worry about catching a cold. 

The only thing to worry about is your hair itself. If you have the kind of hair that curls up wildly if left to itself after washing, you might want to reconsider sleeping with wet hair!
