How To Use Rice Water To Make Your Hair Longer And Fuller

Rice water has a lot of nutrients that are good for hair growth. It consists of a number of chemical elements like magnesium and vitamins like niacin, thiamine, and so on

It help to grow hair faster than taking these nutrients orally. 

How to use it 

After applying your shampoo and your conditioner as usual, add the rice water to your hair and leave it for about an hour. You can cover it with a cap .

How to get the rice water, soak a cup of rice in a cup of water for about 8-24 hours, as long as you want. Then sieve the rice out. It's the water you need. Or cook the rice in water for a number of minutes, when the water colour changes to white, you can take the water you need.

Personally, i have tried it. And it works. When I heard people say it, I wonder that which one is this one again, using rice water. I didn't know till I tried it

Try it and you would not regret it.

  • I have used this treatment before it helps the growth of your hair and prevent it from dandruff. It's also need to ferment the water in a bottle for, 24hours before use. Cover for like an hour or according to your time you can. No adverse effect. Thanks

  • this is a nice tea and rice has a very good side effect cause if your phone got wet then you can put it inside the rice don't own me to don't off it's just if it won't say what I just put it inside the rice for like 8 or 4 hours after the water is train then you can remove it and driving so nervous or maybe I'll blow it with your blower I guess that will work and it's very good I really love it

  • Regular use of rice water has many benefits for hair – it helps to remove dandruff, strengthen the strands, stimulate their growth, give vitality, and significantly improve their appearance. The composition  of rice water is rich in vitamins, especially b and c.. There is no much side effect to it but women with dry scalp should not over it because the decoction have drying effect

  • This is really amazing. Rice water now turn to hair fertilizer. If it could be this nutrition to the hair then why is it that we do use to pour it's water away when we are cooking it. Is it not that we are pouring the vitamins that use to do us good from the rice all because we r preventing not to have pile.?

  • Ohh.. thanks very much. But am wondering, is there any particular type of rice that need to be used. Because obviously, not all type of rice can be used. Maybe there is a type of product that can be used

    - Ealefoh Adesuwa - 2019-10-02 21:17:58 Quote

  • Doesn't it has any side effects? Well eating the right food also helps hair grow longer .having long ,strong hair doesnt just depend on which product you put on your hair ,it also depends on What you put into your body.To promote hair growth,you need to feed the hair from the inside.Try improving your protein intake with foods like fish,beans,nuts And whole grains

  • I personally used this for my hair and not only did it make my hair longer but Fuller and softer.

    I always had issue with my hair. It hurts a lot anytime I braid it to the extent that i cut it twice. I was going to cut it when I someone told me to try rice water and I did. It worked like magic before I knew it my hair was so soft to the extent that I could leave it for days and it wouldn't hurt when I eventually try to comb it.

  • I don't think this has been scientifically proven and may have some negative influence. For those that may want to try,please be careful. Maybe you can get a hair sample and try it on it and see the result it will produce.

  • Wow, I've never heard of this before...but I'll be more than willing to try it because my hair doesn't seem to be growing as fast as I want it to...I hope it works for me, thanks.

  • Well, I have heard about this rice water treatment but I never took it serious, but with your detailed explanation now I will like to try it

    i hope it doesn't have side effects e.g changing of hair color 

    Thanks for sharing the tips

    - Lims Jr - 2019-10-02 21:47:39 Quote

  • This is amazing

    But first things first, I just hope it has no side effect, because I believe if it does, the side effect on the hair won't be friendly

    Secondly, If it does not have any side effect on the hair, then I just hope an entrepreneur gets to see this new hair innovation, he/she is gonna capitalize on this opportunity and make a huge living form it, am very sure of that.

  • Using such water for a purpose discussed, does it not have a later effect on the hair, and I stand to also challenge the opinion, cux all hairs has no same texture and may not work for all, but few ones. Alovera still remains a very vital hell that encourages hair growth and I know people who  use it, it works for them. 

    - PETER MMADUEKE - 2019-10-02 21:55:54 Quote

  • I really hope, this remedy works, cause there are lot of things that can damage the hair, so we have to be be very careful trying apply anything on our hair, but I will try this remedy and see if it's going to work.

  • Wow!. Thank you for this useful information. I would have to give it a try and to think that it is a natural solution without any chemical to be added makes it very less prone to bringing up side effects.

  • I hopes  this those not have a side effect on the human hair because I have not heard it flares anything like this but I will give it a try and also let people know about it who know where the money will come from

  • I pray it works out without side effect, though I have heard about the use of rice water to grow the hair, but won't it effect my hair or cause my hair to start cutting while combing

    Secondly is it before the rice gets cooked is when we should use the water or the waste water after cooking

  • Really long hair is beautiful and all, but it can be hard to get. Either you shell out for removable fake hair, or you undertake the painstaking process of growing your own out. The latter is more cost-effective, but requires a lot of willpower and a comfort with the passage of time — both of which are usually in short supply.
    If you want to be rid of your Chalamet haircut or own an all- natural ponytail that skims your butt, there are a few things you can do to help the process along. First, mentally prepare yourself do a lot of waiting. Seriously — hair grows up to half-an-inch a month max, and that’s if it and you are both in prime condition. It’s gonna take a while. Next, follow these 15 hair-growth tricks that will nudge those leisurely hair follicles in the right direction.
    1. Stop demonizing scissors
    2. Study your shampoo bottle
    3. And maybe spend less time with it
    4. But keep conditioning
    5. Stop doing that towel thing
    6. Brush up on how to brush
    7. Then give your hair some space
    8. Learn to love low ponytail
    9. Sleep on silk
    10. Chill out
    11. Try massaging your scalp
    12. And treat your scalp like your face
    13. Eat some gummies if you want
    14. But eat regular food too
    15. Consider outside forces.

  • I have a younger sister that I long saw, when I went to visit them I just saw her keeping the water we used to perboil rice while I expected her to pour it away 

    it was then I had to ask her what she was keeping the water for then she told me it’s for her hair, she uses it to wash her hair and it’s been working for her.

    it was funny as I laughed at her but since I’ve been trying it it’s really been working for me. 

    It’s something ladies should tryout especially those of us that our hair isn’t growing
