I have been using fermented rice water on my hair for two weeks now. Omg it is literally the best thing I have ever used. I don’t have to wash my hair as often because it doesn’t get oily and after washing, it immediately feels soft. If you have any problems with hair growth, I really recommend it.
Anyways I hope this helps someone

what's your hair type and how often do you use it?
do you save the rice for eating or another purpose or throw it away and waste it?

I read about it once when I looked up more about the curly girl method, but didn't pay much attention to it, now i'm curious again

i drink rice water when i have diarrhea to make it more solid

I don’t save the rice because I let it set for a couple days to ferment. I mean you probably could, I just don’t think it’d be very scrumptious. I have really thick hair and it’s about medium length. It’s not curly but is kind of wavy. It doesn’t really make it any curlier just soft. Its a lot cheaper than buy expensive shampoos that hardly ever work.

so what does your hairwashing routine look like including the rice water thing from start to finish?

>I wash my hair every 2-3 days
>So on the day I wash my hair I put hair oil (the brand I use is called ouai) in it before I even get it wet. By doing this you help protect all your natural oils.
>I use non sulfate shampoo and then I put the rice water in and let it soak for about 20 minutes.
>after that I use a conditioner hair mask (bondi boost is the best one I found, its price effective and works)
>once I get out I use some wave spray.
>the in between wash days make sure your using hair oil and dry shampoo. If your hair feels a little dry throw some oil in, if your hair feels a little too oily throw some dry shampoo in.
>the days I don’t use the rice water and conditioner mask. I use just non sulfate shampoo and conditioner and use a leave in conditioner mask

Oh yeah here’s a big one
Do not dry your hair by twisting it up in a towel, it causes your hair to break and get split ins.

Anon, that's still way too much.

I think it depends on the type of hair you have

Anonymous 13362

Does it work?

Anonymous 13368

depends on hair type and the environment you live in.
if you have oily hair and live in a humid and/or polluted environment, you should be washing it about every 2-3 days.

Not OP but my hair would literally be dripping with grease if I didn't wash it every second day. I cannot comprehend how some people go a week without washing their hair, does your scalp not feel gross and itchy??

Anonymous 13435

Same, I have really fine hair and sometimes it even feels like it gets too greasy in just a day. I tried "no poo" a bunch of times and different ways and it never worked for me.

Because your scalps are overcompensating because you're washing too often. Yes, at first, your hair is going to be greasy and disgusting because your scalp is going to produce the same amount of oil it has to keep up with being washed every day or two. But it will get better with time.

Isn't your oil production adapting to your washing frequency a myth?

Anonymous 13514

First time I used it, I boiled it. Indeed immediant difference. But the second time I fermented it and, ew, it reeked. Would not recommend but that's only my perspective.

Anonymous 13518

No. It's the same reason that using too many drying products on your face can also lead to oil overproduction. When you dry your skin out, your body produces sebum to compensate.

Most people just don't have the patience to wait out the time it takes to see results (6-12 weeks), so they say it doesn't work. And everyone is different, so some people aren't going to ever get down to once a week, but most people wash their hair far too often.

Anonymous 13523

I did this for months, much longer than 12 weeks, and I found the the best frequency to wash my hair is definitely 2-3 times a week.

This reminds me. One time on a whim I was using a fermented rice toner with some filtered water and a tiny bit of jojoba oil in a spray bottle and spritizing it onto my still drying hair in a very hot car.

Usually I had no routine but for some reason something was telling me my hair needed more so I kept rubbing it in. It was honestly really dumb.

The entire day for the first time in YEARS people were complimenting my hair and wanting to touch it and swarming around me. Including people that had insulted my hair before. Like what?? My hair looked thicker, lusher, shinier. It looked straight out of a Disney cartoon.

And what shocked me is that normally my hair looks dead and greasy 1 hour after showering but it looked absolutely perfect all day long. Tf.

To this day I've tried similar things and etc but never have achieved the same result. Blow outs never really gave the same effect.
