I felt obliged to point out the obvious, the human body functions at 37 C so therefore it’s common sense that by not drying your hair in cold
temperatures you are lowering your body temperature; the water on the hair evaporates and this evaporation process is scientifically proven to have a
cooling affect, hence this drops the body temperature and this drop in the body temperature can lead to many health related problems etc headaches,
Hypothermia is most likely at very cold temperatures, but it can occur even at cool temperatures (above 40°F) if a person becomes chilled from rain,
sweat, submersion in cold water or wet hair.
SO therefore it is best to keep your body at the temperature that it functions best at, and to conclude wet hair in cool temperatures is a health
risk, and for those that are adamant that wet hair does not have any adverse effects on them, I would say it may not show any effects now but who
knows what the long term effects may be????.
