The ultimate rice water recipe
I was a bit skeptical when people started talking to me about homemade recipes, but once I heard a comment about how wonderful rice water was, I decided to try it.
Mostly because I was regretting a haircut that I had done and I wanted my hair to grow as fast as possible.
Before taking the leap and trying rice water, I did a lot of research and I found that what makes this homemade recipe so powerful is the inositol.Inositol is a carbon hydrate that repairs the hair and gives it excellent properties like strength and elasticity.
However, while I was researching, I found one problem: the internet offered different ways to make the remedy.
What guarantee was there that they all worked?
So, I took the time to try them.
I tried fermented rice water, soaked rice water, boiled rice water… I experimented with different processes that surprised me with the results.
This is the ultimate recipe, my “secret formula.”
What do you need?
- 4 cups of water
- 1 cup of rice
How is it prepared?
- Wash the rice well with water to get rid of the dirt.
- Boil the cup of rice in the four cups of water.
- When the rice is soft, your rice water is ready.
- Strain the water and let it cool for half an hour.
Very well, now that you have the water ready, it is time to apply it to your hair.
But you should apply it correctly, because otherwise, all the work that you’ve done won’t serve for anything.
How you should use rice water so that it works
- First, you should wet your hair with the rice water, especially your scalp area, and massage it for five minutes.
- This step targets your follicles, which stimulates growth and strengthens your hair.
- After five minutes, wash your hair with your preferred shampoo. When you rinse out the shampoo, use the rest of the rice water from the middle of your hair to the ends and let it sit for a half an hour. Then rinse with natural water.
- The last step targets the strands of your hair, which will give elasticity, smoothness and shine to your mane.
Many people don’t recommend using shampoo or rinsing the rice water, saying that the homemade remedy loses its properties.
But inositol continuously acts. What does that mean? That means that even after rinsing it from your hair, the inositol continues to act.I recommend using shampoo after the first step to avoid the possible appearance of dandruff and I rinse after the last step to prevent my hair from getting hard and stiff.
As I said, I tried various ways of using the rice water, and this way gave me the best results, that’s why I wanted to share with you to keep you from wasting your time.
I use rice water once a week, but you can use it twice week if that seems better. And don’t waste the rice that is left over. I make rice tortillas!
5 incredible benefits of rice water
As I told you, the active ingredient in rice water is inositol. This carbon hydrate provides the following benefits for your hair.
Elasticity refers to how the hair acts, meaning, it’s the ability that your hair has to stretch without breaking and go back to its natural state.
That’s why, rice water will help you give shape back to your hair. If your hair is straight, it will be straighter. On the other hand, if your hair is curly, it will be curlier.
- It helps reduce friction.
With rice water, you will get softer hair, and you will prevent friction between the strands.
If there is no friction, your hair won’t tangle, and therefore, it won’t break.
If you prevent your hair from breaking, you will notice how much it grows.
A lot of times, we think that our hair isn’t growing, and what is happening is that it is breaking half way through.
Inositol doesn’t just repair the strands of hair, but it also strengthens the follicles. Your new hair will be stronger and thicker.
- Softness and Shine
The most incredible part of the rice water is that you will see changes from the first time you use it.
Obviously, you won’t notice how your hair grows until after a month, but there is a benefit that you will notice from the first application: your hair will be super soft and shiny.
- Longer hair
With healthier, more elastic, and stronger hair with less friction, the increase in hair growth will happen on its own. Don’t forget to massage your scalp while the rice water is sitting and your hair will grow faster.
Keep in mind that every body is different, so the rice water could have a different effect on you. Your hair could grow a little more or a little les tan mine.
You should also be realistic. If you decide to use rice water because you saw that a community in China uses it and their hair grew to be a meter and a half, I hate to pop your bubble.
Those Chinese women’s hair grows faster not just because they use rice water, but because their lifestyle is much healthier than ours in many senses.
So, if your goal is to get your hair to grow 10 centimeters in a month, I doubt that you’ll get that. But if you want your hair to grow a meter in length, you will get it with time and consistency using the rice water.
Like I told you, I’m very happy with the results. Not just happy, but surprised because it exceeded my expectations.
