Does anyone wet their hair daily?

It is good to hear that it gets easier over time. How long does it take you and how many twists do your normally do?

@NoodleNaps
After oil rinsing multiple times this week in braids I took the braids down and found tangles, lots of them. It took some time to work out all of the tangles. I then conditioner washed my hair and put it in chunky twists and set it the next day. The next day I also had a time consuming detangling session. I am going to try conditioner washing the hair while in twists in order to avoid matting and tangling this time. On another note my hair is really soft and sheeny. I love how it feels and I don't have to worry about reapplying product in between wetting sessions except to use coconut oil the night before. I will continue to use sulfate free shampoo once a week as my scalp needs that to feel clean. I may see about switching to a conditioning cleanser once a week so that I may move shampooing to once every two weeks. If I get the hang of this I may be able to kiss itchy scalp goodbye.

Also I'm not one of those people who can do a once a week detangling either because of the tangles I get from shed hair.

This week was test/presentation week. I just didn't have time for conditioner washing and the possible detangling aftermath since I haven't gotten my technique down yet. I'll get back to it next week.

Ok so I'm so over this now, lol. I just can't be bothered with the constant wetting. I started to think maybe I should switch to steaming instead, but can't be bothered to wheel my steamer out more than once a week, so I'm going to look into handheld steamers of some sort. Will report back. Let me know if you're still doing this ricot!

That means the minute I go under water I have a detangling situation. What I have noted is how incredibly soft my hair feels with wetting my hair more. The results were similar if not the same with when I used to baggy twice a week. That being said I think I will turn to using my bathroom as a midweek steam room for my hair, either that or do a midweek baggy session. I think that should provide the same results without fighting with wet hair. As for my scalp I got a spray that takes out the itching, and I have realized finally that cowashing is not for me and trying it over and over is not going to change that.

@NoodleNaps: My personal opinion is that wetting/re-wetting should be done if it can be done fairly easily and appears to be genuinely helping your hair. My hair loves water and like you, I used to wet it very often. The only reason why I have stopped is b/c its too long to wet (without washing/conditioning) and I don't really have the time or energy to go through that more than every 5-7 days max. I can't say for sure whether or not my hair was in better condition when I was wetting it daily/every other day. There are so many variables involved. I do feel like my hair was softer then, but I was also DTing sometimes 3 times a week at that time. In any event, I'd love if you keep us updated on the handheld steamer. I didn't even know there was such a thing!

I wet my hair every other night. Rather it be a spray bottle or co wash. I co wash once a week. But I spray and oil my hair every other day mostly to style. I can barely get 2nd day curls let a lone 3rd day.
Unless I'm wearing a protective style like kinky twist or braids or a weave. Then I don't touch my hair.
Shampoo: Terressetials Mud Wash (lavender or lemon)
Co-Wash: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Conditioner
Deep Conditioner: Anita Grant's Rhassoul Deep Condish
Leave In: Kinky Curly Knot Today
Creams/Oils: Raw Shea Butter, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Jamican Black Castor Oil and Jojoba Oil
