Can walking out of the house with wet hair actually get you sick? Random question but I would love to know the truth on it.

In brief: Wet Hair Outside

Walking out of the house with wet hair cannot make you sick.
If you were developing a cold or upper respiratory infection before you went out, the cold, wet hair may hasten some cold symptoms.
