I do. Nearly everyday.
I've been told by a previous boss that it's "unprofessional" to arrive at work with wet hair, but I'm stubborn and figured she could not fire me for this alone. So although I pony-tailed it after that, I never took a hair-dryer to it.
It wasn't till I arrived in Hong Kong that I heard that Malaysian and Singaporean girls are told not to go out with wet hair for fear that someone will think they've been up to some rumpy-pumpy. This is crazy! Why has no one ever told me this?
A colleague of mine who's a lady through and through is also deeply against it, and I admit I'm slightly swayed by her opinion. But still I persist in walking out the door when my hair's still damp from the shower.
Blow-drying damages hair
This is a BIG one for me. I already shed so much it's a wonder I'm not bald and the idea of increasing hair breakage is anathema to me, and also because...
I wash my hair nearly everyday
In summer especially, my hair just greases up so I need to wash it just about everyday. I may try and skip a day now and then, rubbing some dry-shampoo in my hair and bunning it. But fact is I LIKE washing my hair and will absent-mindedly do it even when I've planned not to.
Usually in the morning
Because at night would mean either staying up while my hair dries, or going to bed with a wet head and waking up with a funny hairstyle.
We live in a tropical country
I see how prejudices like this crop up in countries where walking out with a wet head means you'll catch pneumonia and all your hair will freeze and fall off. But we don't. The weather here is HOT, my hair dries in about an hour flat. So the fact that it's wet is really a very temporary condition. Plus..
Wet hair is harder to avoid than you think
Rain, after-gym showers, sea, pools, in hot countries these are hard to avoid and who the heck would want to? Just to keep your hair dry? Puh-leeze. Life's way more fun when you let your hair get wet.
But these are just my reasons and I'm eager to hear whether you do or don't walk around with scandalously wet hair, and why.
