WET HAIR AND COLD AIR
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
An old wives tale that has been
around as long as the common cold says that if you go outside with wet hair
youíll catch a cold. For hundreds of years people have believed that they cannot
go out, and still dry their hair before leaving the house for school or work in
the morning. This is believed to be even truer during the winter months when
itís cold outside.
This is an old wives tale that holds absolutely no
truth. Colds are not caused by cold air or wet hair because viruses cause colds.
The reason that wet hair and cold air have long been associated with colds is
because more people get colds during the winter months. Viruses are more
prevalent during the winter months and dry air lowers the bodyís resistance
against these viruses.
So, if you like to go out with wet hair, you
neednít worry about catching a cold, although you might be a little chilly!
