Rice water has been lauded as a wonderful skin care treatment but did you know it could also be used on hair? It's true, rice water for curl growth is a thing! If you’re struggling to grow out your curls, consider using this DIY rice water treatment for curl growth. Rice water serves as a conditioner for curls and leaves hair feeling soft, and shiny. Helps reduce the friction of curls rubbing together, which can loosen elasticity and create breakage over time. Finally, the rice water strengthens the roots of your curls, encouraging growth.
You can make this rice water treatment right at home. One of the best parts is that you probably already have everything you need (which isn't much!) Make up a batch and use it for several weeks to see results.
Rice water for curl growth:
What you need:
I clean, empty spray bottle
1/2 cup white rice
What to do:
Place 1/2 cup of white rice in a bowl. Rinse with cold water until the water run clear; make sure to remove any dirt or impurities. Once the rice is clean, allow it to sit in 1 cup cold filtered water for 30 minutes. The water should become cloudy or opaque. This will let you know that the rice has sat in the water long enough and is almost ready to use.
After the rice has sat for the full 30 minutes, strain away the water into the spray bottle. Throw away the rice.
How to use:
Wash, condition, dry, and style your curls as usual. Spray the rice water into your curls, focusing on the scalp. Allow it to try naturally and enjoy the benefits!
