    I got back in the wave game to show my son how it's done. The problem was I am now 80% gray. A whole new ball game. Before it was all about heat and compression but this gray hair would suck up everything I applied and I would un rag to a dry brittle desert. After wash and styles and before a session I apply cold water to kepp my hair laid then apply oil and whatever else. I was a game changer and I see progress!

    Wow. This knowledge from the dr. Is so detailed. Look at it like this. Since were already washing our hair 2 to 3 times a week, I say alternate betweeb the warm and cold water. That way you get all the pros and a minimum of the cons.......

    The Effects Of Hot Water And Cold Water

    Now ever since i started doing the hot towel cold towel method i felt much improvement in my hair and transferred that knowledge to how i wash my hair wetting with hot water shampooing then rinseing with cold but i just dug up some info for errbody

    Hot Water

    PRO: Rinses Away Dirt and Oil

    Hot water and steam naturally open the pores, which is great for exfoliating and removing the oil from your skin. If you have a very oily scalp, washing with hot water can be beneficial. Warm water allows the dirt and hair product that has accumulated on your scalp to escape the pores and be rinsed away. It’s especially important to cleanse your hair of all hair products for your next styling. Overall, warm water might be more beneficial for washing your hair.

    CON: May Result in Overly Porous Hair
    Aforementioned, hot water opens up the pores and the cuticle of your hair shaft. That being said, rinsing your hair with hot water too often can leave the hair overly porous, causing it to be dry and brittle. Unfortunately, hot water seems to be a double-edged sword. Just as hot water helps to rinse away oil and dirt, it also strips your hair of its natural oils. The sebaceous glands in your skin produce natural oils called “sebum” that are essential for your hair’s health. Sebum gives the hair shine and strength, both of which are vital for beautiful hair.

    CON: Causes Frizz

    Heat causes frizzy hair, and hot water is no exception. No matter what your hair type, the hair needs moisture to stay frizz free. Because hot water can strip the hair of natural oils, moisture escapes the hair shaft and results in frizz. If your hair is especially prone to frizz, you might want to turn off the hot water.

    Cold Water

    PRO: Seals the Moisture in Your Hair

    Just the opposite of hot water, cold water closes the pores and prevents dirt from entering and accumulating on the scalp. Not only does it close the pores, it also closes the hair cuticle, sealing in moisture from the conditioner that you applied to your hair. Whereas hot water can remove the moisture from your hair, cold water retains the moisture and the natural sebum that’s so beneficial. Don’t forget, more moisture means less frizz. Cold water retains your hair’s moisture, leaving your hair less prone to frizz.

    PRO: Increases Shine

    Sometimes stylists like to finish blow drying with a blast of cold air because it leaves the hair shiny. The same concept can be applied to a cold water rinse. Cold water is known to smooth the hair by closing the scales of your hair cuticle, which in turn prevents frizz and adds luster to your locks.

    CON: Flattens Hair

    Because cold water leaves the hair smooth, it can also flatten your hair if you have a naturally thin texture. If your hair lacks in volume, or if you live in a particularly arid environment, rinsing your hair with cold water might result in flat hair and curls with no bounce.

    I dont see this last one as a con but yep test this for your selves do 2 washes and rinse once with warm water and again with cold and see if u feel the difference
