Default "water will make your hair rot!!!"

was what i was told by my beautician in regards to braidout or airdrying. Now i never fell for the hype but always wanted to know if there was some truth behind it now that i'm co-washing and doing braidouts this summer
what are your thoughts?

TIA

I never heard that before; I have heard water dries hair out, though. I assume it has to do with people mistakenly blaming water for the bad things really harsh/ineffective products do to hair.

I could be wrong, though.

Honestly I would have probably bust out laughing

I've heard make your hair dry... which is just a common misconception.

but make your hair ROT? Makes no sense. Sense when does water make things rot? You take a shower everyday, does water make your skin rot?

I burst out laughing upon reading that. You shouldn't let your hair get mouldy...bit beyond that...I don't see how it would.

I dont believe water will make your hair rot.

But when my neice and I were 13 years old, my sister use to put grease and water on my neice's natural hair to make it curl up. I wouldn't let her near mine. But anyway, my neice's hair turned hard like wool and started breaking off. I think that's what she means by it rotting.

My neice had pretty natural hair, and for some reason that grease and water destroyed it.

Water making your hair rot? I guess plants rot if you water them as well.

The grease dried your niece's hair out. Apparently, the hair wasn't being washed and the grease and dirt built up on the hair. I wouldn't call that rotting that sounds like lack of care.

the only way i could think of water making hair rot is if its wet everyday and never dries... maybe that could cause some problems?

actually a friend of mine said her stylist told her that her daughters hair had dry rot.....we just ignored it because dry rot is a condition wood gets but here is a definition so i can see why someone would put the two together

Dry rot is a condition of wood in which a fungus breaks down wood fibers and renders the wood weak and brittle. Excess moisture is the root cause of dry rot.

Maybe she was referring to the possibility of mildew/mold growing on hair that stays wet for too long too often.

Tires can dry rot too.But nah...it's not going to make your hair rot unless you put it in like a bun or something for days w/o taking it down and it doesn't get the chance to dry out...then fungus and mold grow on it. I don't think anyone here is that nasty. (Speaking from observer's experience...saw a girl do that before...was gross...)
