    Incredibly uncomfortable and will make your pillows and stuff damp which could mean you'll have to change them :yep: — I'd say it's a no-go imo

    I do it when it's not fully wet and a little dry to save time before school and to save my hair from heat (I used to dye it a lot, but I have naturally very straight hair so it didn't bother me, and I tend to do things late at night) and it hasn't made me ill or anything, just prepare to wake up with bushier hair. I also plaited it to make it wavy for the morning

    Just uncomfortable I guess.

    The whole 'catch a cold' thing is a bit of a myth I think.

    Do it. Live dangerously.

    Well you will end up with a wet pillow, and you may be a little colder and more uncomfortable, but hey, why not step over to the wild side for a change?

    There's an old myth that wet hair leads to colds but it doesn't, so there aren't really any genuine cons, or pros to sleeping with wet hair!

    I do all the time and I'm frequently told by people (including hairdressers) that my hair is super healthy because of it! It might be a little uncomfortable but I usually put it in a really high pony tail and then its fine! It also gets quite a nice wave by the morning too!

    You tie it up and put a towel on your pillow.

    Compounding is when you find the Future value of money and discounting is when you find the value of future money in the present I think.
    What a weird question lol

    Such as in the year 2018 you have £100 how much does that actually mean in terms on the present value as money X time = change in value.
    As such you would say the current rate is 10% and the equation would be £100x(1+10%^-years)= £83 which is what £100 in the future is worth in terms of the value of money today and then compounding is just the opposite so the equation would be £100x(1+10%^years) = £121
    Or something like that lol

    It's basically used to decide wether you should invest money or spend it now depending on interest rates and market rates.
    I hope I didn't confuse you lol
