Is It Bad to Sleep With Wet Hair?

Q) Is It Bad, Like Really, Really Bad, to Sleep With Wet Hair?

I increasingly hate using my hairdryer. I try and be all good and beauty editory, saying I just don't want to do too much heat damage but that's a lie. Gasp. It's because I'm lazy and canne be arsed blow-drying, straightening and then put a loose wave throughout so I cut out the first man (middle man gets to stay) and just straighten/wave produce instead. I wash my hair in the night and leave it to dry naturally but — and this is where my point comes in case you were wondering — I often sleep with it wet. When I told somebody this the other day they looked as though I'd confessed to handing over my *first-born to a pack of goats. I thought it was always fine to do so, but then I started to question myself so I put an email into Man in the Know: Mr. Brad Ngata, hairdresser to the stars and well, me. He was all "Chillax, Bells, it's fine. Your hair will dry softer and just think of the less thermal damage you're doing." I was still freaking out so he did conceed that I might catch a chill in this cold weather. Whatevs. If that's all, then imma stick with my towel-drying. Thanks Bradoodles. Do you sleep with wet hair or never ever?

*There is no first-born and there are no goats but I really wanted you to be right there with me.
