Rice Water Rince – Overview

So while I tried to keep up on the blog during the storms, I ran out of time and the farm and the critters always need to come first, plus I lost the computer for a week and bit only having limited access to the net on hubbies in the evening. None the less, I wanted to do a overview of what happened when instead of using the rice water rinse, once a month, like I do for a deep condition..

Here is my normal hair, washed, air dried and then brushed.. this was done a two weeks before the challenge started..


What o what happened when it became the main rinse for weeks.. the answer.. Volume.. Lots and lots of Volume! This is fresh washed, air dried and brushed.. after four weeks of only rice water or fermented rice water as my rinse. It also pretty much took out my color in a heartbeat.. Sorry for the bad photo, it was taken by the computer and it did something odd to it but it still shows what I want, which is the hair! LOL


“The really hard was realizing that I am one hair wash away from being out of my favorite conditioner..  (how did that happen, why is there not any extra, because it’s not been on sale for months, or more like for at least a year plus) which let me tell you did not make me happy..”

My longer hair needs to have a softener added after being washed..  but we have eggs for a deep condition and we have lots of rice.. so I will be doing rice water rinse

Did you just go.. huh, rice water rinse? The joy of this is that you just need to soak your rice in water (which also cuts down the cooking time) and instead of putting it down the sink.. it has a job to do.. or you can make your rice with extra water just for this, either way, it’s very little extra work and because it can be stored in the fridge and or fermented to a point, it does not need to be made daily and it should be diluted

What is Rice Water?

Rice water, in its simplest form, is the water that is leftover after washing off rice in preparation for eating. It can be concentrated or diluted and even fermented to bring out most of its benefits.

Rice water contains nutrients that can fortify hair and renew skin when used as a facial wash or hair rinse, and unlike many products for skin or hair care on the commercial market, it is an easy and natural way to care for your skin and hair.

    Thank you for the great idea. I had never thought of using “used” water for my hair. This just adds another element to “reduce, reuse, recycle”. Have to try this weekend.

    Your hair looks like it might be softer in that second photo. Would you say that’s the case?

    • I wish I could say its so, but alas not, it is much rougher in feeling, where with my normal, its sleek feeling after doing it moving over to a greasy feel in a matter of days, with the new, its fuller, rougher but also takes a long time before it “feel” unclean, and gets better on day 3 or 4 as it is brushed.
