Do not wash baby’s hair on rainy days.
Reason: Baby will catch cold easily.
True or False?
I did not believe in this tale until I had Marie. I always argued with my mother over this issue and every time I was wrong. Over the years, I have tested this tale and it is true that children, especially those under 2 years old are more likely to catch a cold if they have a hair wash on very cold rainy days. This does not happen if it is a warm rainy day. Nowadays, I also do not wash the children’s hair if they have a cough and cold. This helps them get over the cold faster.
