Does rinsing your hair mean more growth?

I know it's not good to shampoo your hair everyday or co-wash, but what about rinsing your hair? I try and rinse my hair with water or spritz it with tea in everyday. Does this strip hair of its oils?

    Unfortunately, almost anything we do to our hair ruins it. Even, yes, washing with water. The pH balance of our hair is around a 5 or 6, meaning that its relatively acidic in nature. The pH balance of water is around a 7, which makes water more basic than our hair. That's why sulfates are so bad for our hair, because they're several times more basic than water.

    It's not /bad/ per se to wash your hair with water (I mean, what ELSE are we suppoed to wash our hair with?? XD), but it's okay. I guess the short answer to your question would be no, it's not that bad... haha...
    There is a phenomenal amount of beauty in self-acceptance. <3
