I am sure by now a lot of us have heard about the new rave for hair growth…… the rice water rinse.
I came across it when I had my “Big Chop” last year January while I was trying to make my hair grow faster.
I was just going through a phase in my life, where I needed a fresh start, and cutting my hair gave me that. I was excited about it because this was the first time I would be cutting my hair since I was a kid. I wanted to experience the chill of pouring water on my head everyday while I have my shower, I mean having it hit my skull. Its the best thing since sliced bread.
Seriously guys, If you have not experienced that feeling then you are missing out on something good. Maybe you should consider cutting your hair too?
Its just hair…it would grow back…..longer and healthier at that.
So after I had cut my hair, I was happy styling it at different stages (length). But then, I got to a particular length (everyone has it), that’s difficult to style. Plus my hair wasnt growing as fast as I expected. I then decided to do my research.
And I discovered the rice water rinse.
I was eager to try the rice water rinse because of the massive positive reviews I heard from people and also because it’s very easy to prepare. And after I did, and loved the result. My hair was shiny, soft and longer after a few months of use. And like I said…its easy.
See the steps below.
- Boil your rice: I usually wait for when I want to have rice for lunch to avoid wastage. And since I normally pre-boil my rice and drain the water before putting little water till it dries, it was perfect……No more wastage. The water I would typically throw away now helps grow my hair…*wink
- After boiling for about 15 mins, i drain out my rice water into a bottle or jar (whichever is convenient for you when washing your hair).
- After the water cools down to you comfort level, you can head straight to the shower to apply as a conditioner, let it sit in your hair for about 5mins while you massage before you wash up. And if you have the energy guys you can wear a satin cap for up to 30mins to let your hair soak it all in before you wash off…but I dont have that time…lol…plus 5mins works just fine.
- Ill like to add that, if you would like to use the water after a later time, you can either choose to preserve it in your refrigerator or just let it ferment for no longer than 24hrs. I prefer it fermented because I feel like it does more for me…you can too if you can stand the strong smell it emits after it ferments.
Thats it guys…so easy.
Let me add, just like conditioners, the rice water rinse is not for daily hair use. Twice a month should be fine.
Would love to hear your views if you have tried it out already or planning to do. Leave your comments below.
