No, it is not harmful to sleep with wet hair. However, you might wake up with wispy locks in the morning and it could take you longer to style your hair. Your pillow will also get wet which may disturb your night's sleep.

What happens if you sleep with braided wet hair?

If you sleep on wet, braided hair and your hair dries while you are sleeping (it may take longer, depending on length, thickness, etc.) your hair will be wavy when you unbraid it. The waves will stay in your hair until you wet it again, although they will become looser over time. If you hair is still damp when you unbraid it, you will be able to comb the waves out quite easily, although if you do not comb your hair immediately after unbraiding it may still dry with waves. Add on: The wavy hair after you take the curles out is very pretty. although it may not work out, if your hair is a little bit wet still, you can scrunch it with moose. this is a good, way to get nice, strong hold curles without applying heat to your hair.
