How to Use Rice Water for Natural Hair
Rice water has several uses, and they will all benefit your natural hair if you do them regularly.
Here are some ways to incorporate rice water into your natural hair regimen:
Rice Water Rinse.This is probably the most common way to use rice water. First shampoo and condition your hair with your Mango Moringa Moisture Max System. Then apply the rice water with an applicator or spray bottle, and leave it in your hair for 45-60 minutes. Then rinse in the shower.
Rice Water Spray.Rice water contains many helpful vitamins that your hair can use throughout the week. An easy way to work rice water into your regimen is to spray it on your hair mid-week.
Try using your favorite aromatic essential oils for this spray, or use growth oils like lavender or rosemary. To make this spray, use distilled water and store the rice water spray in the refrigerator. Using distilled waterand the refrigerator will cut down on bacteria and mold from collecting in the container.
Rice Water with No-Poo. Have you been experimenting with using no shampoo? Rice water will be more effective than using plain water because it has nutrition that can feed the hair shaft and a special yeast (pitera) that can rejuvenate the scalp.
Before a Co-Wash. Applying the rice water after using Mango Moringa Moisture Max Conditioner in the co-wash method will help to cleanse the scalp before you apply the conditioner to your strands. Rice water will also help with follicle repair and hair growth.
Rice water will last for up to one week, but you should always store any leftovers in the refrigerator and never leave them in your bathroom cabinets.
Using rice water daily in a spray bottle, or weekly as a rinse does a lot for natural hair. Plus, it’s inexpensive—something that is super helpful for naturals on a budget.
Use it regularly, and expect to grow longer, thicker, and healthier natural hair.
