DIY LOUNGE - Rice water as hair treatment
Do you know rice water has amazing hair benefits, it has inositol, a carbohydrate that helps repair damaged hair and also protects your hair from damaging. Inositol stays inside the hair even after you must have rinsed and it continues to protect your hair after styling..
Rinsing your hair with rice water after shampooing helps strengthen hair roots, adds shine and makes hair silky.
The rice water is more effective if left to ferment,fermented rice water is rich in minerals, antioxidants,vitamins A and B.
HOW TO MAKE RICE WATER::::::
: 1/2 cup of raw rice
: 2 cups of water
: rinse rice wit cold water
: pour the rice into a bowl and pour the water
: let the rice soak for 15mins
: knead lightly until the water turns Cloudy
: sieve out the rice water and your rice water is ready for use.
Fermented rice water
: after you must have sieved the rice water ( as stated above), cover and leave at room temperature for a day or two.
: boil the fermented rice water ( this is to stop the fermentation process)
: let it cool and your fermented rice water is ready for use.
HOW TO USE
after shampooing, add two tablespoons of lemon juice( this is to clear all build ups)to your rice water, pour on your hair and leave it in for about 10 mins, rinse out and you are done. This should be done twice a week!
