Independent – March 2023

Dr Natalia Bogatcheva, private GP at Harley Street’s The London General Practice, contributes to an article discussing some of the common myths our mums may have told us.

Dr Bogatcheva advises that common colds are generally caught if someone coughs or sneezes near you or via the transmission of bodily fluids, but wet hair has nothing to do with it. Whilst it does not result in a cold, going to bed with wet hair or having wet hair for long periods, may however be damaging to your hair or scalp.
