How long will it take Rice Water to grow your hair?

With consistent use and good hair care expect to see results in 3 months and dramatic results in 6 months.

Our hair grows an average of 1/2 inch per month. Some people have hair growth rates that are slightly over this rate and some are slightly under.

Unfortunately, nothing has been scientifically proven to speed this rate up. However, the products that you use and the way you care for your hair will help you to fight off breakage and hold onto more length.

How to use Rice Water for hair growth

Many people have used Rice Water as a rinse out conditioner, by doing the following:

  • Boiling rice in water until the water becomes milky white.
  • Straining the rice from the water.
  • Some people like to ferment their Rice Water so they let it sit on a shelf in a covered jar for a day. You can do this for a more potent mix or you can simply proceed to the next step.
  • The Rice Water is then mixed with water to dilute your solution, Rice Water is very potent. 
  • You can add a few drops of essential oils for a more pleasant smell.
  • Let your mix cool and then you can apply to your hair.
  • You can put the mixture in a large bowl and let your hair soak in it for a few minutes or if you have a spray bottle you can spray the mix on your hair, let it set for a while and then rinse out.

If you try this, I promise you, your hair is going to feel super soft and buttery! It is quite delightful.

What are the origins of Rice Water?

Rice water has been used in many Asian cultures for hundreds of years, many of us are late to the party!

"In the Heian Period of Japanese history - 794 to 1185 CE, the court ladies had beautiful long hair that was floor-length. They were said to use rice water for hair daily". (Source)

Even today a group of women known as Yoa that reside in a Chinese village are known for their extremely long hair. And guess what they use? Rice Water! (Source)
