Question: Can you wet natural hair every day?
You can wet natural hair everyday by spritzing water over your hair to maintain moisture, but not washing it. I like to dilute 1:1 ratio of water and aloe vera juice in spray bottle and spritz my hair when it's dry and tangled. It will condition, soften, and hydrate your curls.
