Hope you all are doing great.
I wanted to share something interesting today that’s my experiment with rice water rinse. I wanted to try it from long time. But my hair care routine always comes last it seems . On and off I am also trying CG method. My hair is naturally wavy. But I have lot of unused products so first I will finish them and then will start a dedicated CG method.
So there are lot of method mentioned at many places what I did was I washed raw rice 2-3 times nicely and soaked it in filtered water. I left it overnight and morning I used the rice for Idli batter and water I kept in a jar I left the water again for almost 4-5 hours. So total time taken was 14 hrs soak plus 4 hrs strained total 18 hrs. Smell was little funny but tolerable though I read at most of the places take 3-4 spoon rice in a litre of water and leave it for 24 hours the water will become little milky and frothy. Truely speaking my nose too sensitive to bear that smell hence I went with milder one. You can increase or decrease the tine depending upon your smell sensitivity.
Coming to the water. I filled the spray bottle with rice water and sprayed on my hair covering almost all hair root to tip. Left it for 30 mins. Took a headbath used mild shampoo and conditioner.
Any changes I saw …yes my hair felt a bit shiny n it was nice to touch them kind of soft. I have used it two times as of now. And planning to continue.
Also the second time I used it was third day from the hair wash day and I didn’t shampoo my hair as I felt my scalp was clean only and didn’t used conditioner either as I thought to use leave in conditioner. Well the hair did felt much better. Shiny n soft. Below is the pic I clicked on 3rd day from hair wash day using the above techniques. Kindly ignore the frizziness.
With lots of ♥️
