When it comes to hair care, there are thousands of theories swarming around salons and beauty blogs.
Some of these theories are simply myths, “solutions” created by women in desperate need of an answer to their hair problems. Others, though, are scientifically sound.
One such sound theory is that of cold water being better for hair health. But before you drench yourself in a frigid shower, you probably want to know how this theory works — and if it’s worth freezing for.

The Healthiest Temperature For Your Hair
The best way to get salon-perfect tresses is to utilize cold water. We recommend staying away from piping hot water temps as much as possible, since the damage far outweighs the reward. Not only does it dry your hair out, but it also dries out your scalp.
That said, to improve the condition of your hair, rinse with cold water. Every time your body is screaming at you, your hair will be thanking you!
