Sleeping with wet hair, is it bad?

I wonder how bad is it to sleep on wet hair?

I came out of the shower 3 hours ago and it is still kind of wet, but I am tired and want to go to bed, but will I somehow damage my hair?
I'd say yes. Your hair is most fragile when it's wet. If you go to bed with wet hair, tossing and turning could damage it. Braid it, if you absolutely MUST go to bed with wet hair, or put it in a bun.

I sleep with wet hair only if its DAMP and I braid it, and put a silk cap on.

I guess you would have less damage from sleeping on it since it is shorter. You could also do what I did:I took a pair of silk pajamas and cut the legs off, sew them together, and make myself a sleeping cap.
Thanks! I will try the pajama thing out!

I don't like to blow dry my hair, so I guess I will wait 20 more minutes before I drop dead!

Its about 80% dry now anyway!
I sleep with wet hair whenever I wash it. I pineapple it, so I think that minimizes the damage.

PM me if you have suggestions for my hair (i.e. product, etc.), help would be very much appreciated!
I've slept on my stomach with my microfiber towel wrapped lightly around my hair....extreme but it worked!
