WHY RICE WATER IS GOOD FOR YOUR HAIR
Rice Water Protects hair from damage and promotes growth:
Research shows that rice contains a carbohydrate substance called ‘inositol’. Inositol is the
singular substance in rice that promotes hair growth and stays in the hair even after it has
been washed out, leaving the hair protected days after use. To see proper results from the

Should you use fermented rice water or not?
Fermented rice water please! In case you are wondering why? It is like drinking fresh palm wine and drinking fermented palm wine, if you have been there, you should know how much more potent palm wine is after it has been left to ferment. Liken it to the rice water situation, that is what it is like.
When the rice water is left to ferment, it produces more nutrients than the fresh rice water
and this nutrients cause the rice water to be more effective.
How to Make rice water
Rinse!: You do not want your rice water to have any dirt that may damage your hair.
Boil water: While you rinse your rice, set clean water on a burner to boil. Add your boiled
water to the rice and stir occasionally for 10-15 minutes till the water is whitish.
Sieve: Sieve your rice and set the water aside either overnight (for the fermented method)
or just to cool so you can use it fresh. If you are not ready to use your rice water
immediately after it has cooled ensure you store it in a fridge.
Dilute: Dilute your rice water with fresh water before use. Using it without diluting can
cause damage to your hair.
Storage: If you have excess rice water after use, you can store it in a fridge but it would have
lost its nutrients if left for more than a week.
PS: Your rice can still be boiled to eat after this process, the method does not
render your rice a waste.
Only a handful of rice will do the trick, you do not need a lot.
