Not blow-drying hair... a cause of arthritis?

I've heard that not blow-drying your hair can cause, or lead to possible arthritis. This is due to the pores in your skin soaking in the excess water from your hair, and then deteriorating your joints/bones, or whatnot.

Is this true?

Re: Not blow-drying hair... a cause of arthritis?

NOT!!

Where do people get this stuff from? Actually, I know....it's to instill fear so that a particular behaviour will be discouraged or stopped. And with every generation, it continues with a few other goodies attached so that it keeps the fear "ALIVE".

There are different types of arthritis, most of which are autoimmune disorders usually caused by a virus, or bacteria or is secondary to another disorder that triggers it. There is also osteoarthritis which is caused by excessive wear and tear of the joints.


All equally painful and potentially debilitating.


Hope this helps clear it up a bit.

Why do people make stuff like this up? We have enough to worry about besides all this foolishness.

Arthrtis can be caused by dampness, right?
So, wouldn't the not-blowdrying-hair concept make some sense? if not true, that is?

Re: Not blow-drying hair... a cause of arthritis?

Arthritis is NOT caused by dampness. Not at all.
Please re-read quincy's post above. It is a very good explaination.

Re: Not blow-drying hair... a cause of arthritis?

Quencher, Do not depend on the info from any heath herb sites. Those herb sites have only one goal..to make a profit convinceing you to buy a product.

goto Medlineplus (US National Library of Medicine and National insititute of Health) and read the real medical facts on arthritis.

Here's a medlineplus link and alot of links there to info.

NOPE, not at all. Just the things that are not backed up by medical facts.

Re: Not blow-drying hair... a cause of arthritis?

That's a legitimate question.

No, dampness does not cause arthritis. Sometimes it can make your joints feel worse, but it won't bring on arthritis.

Cheers,

That is totally false, water soaks into your skin or evaporates. There is no way that arthritis can be caused by that. It was to do with your immune system or other factors with you genes.
