We’ve probably been warned before by our mothers that sleeping with wet hair isn’t good for us but sometimes we just can’t help it and are just too tired to dry our wet hair. Especially for girls who have super long hair, it can be a pain!
However, you may want to reconsider this because recently, a 32-year-old woman from Wuhan, China suffered from facial paralysis apparently due to wet hair, according to China Times. Known only by her surname, Xiong works in a shopping mall and because of her busy schedule, she often falls asleep before her hair is dry.
However, she got the shock of her life one day when she woke up from a deep sleep and discovered that the left side of her face could not move. Xiong looked into the mirror while brushing her teeth and found that her mouth was crooked as well. That is certainly scary!
A panicked Xiong rushed to the hospital where a doctor diagnosed her with facial nerve paralysis and deduced that it may have likely been caused by her habit of sleeping with hair that was dripping wet. He explained that the paralysis was possibly due to temperature changes in her body due to her wet hair that can trigger pain and cause her face to experience spasms.
Consequently, this could lead to facial paralysis especially when the body is in a relaxed state when sleeping. He also said that sleeping with wet hair on your pillow would make it an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, which could cause infections. You don’t want a viral infection, do you?
Luckily, Xiong managed to recover after 10 days of comprehensive treatment. What a relief!
Remember to dry your hair before sleeping everyone!
