Rice Water for Curly Girls

Rice Water for Curly Girls

For: Wavy or Curly Hair Girls as a Protein Treatment
Yields: 3 cups

  • 3 cups Water
  • 1/4 cup Rice (any variety*)
  • 1 Orange Peel (optional, but recommended)

  1. Soak Rice in Water, with Orange Peel for 30 minutes to one hour
  2. Drain Water into a seal-able container or spray bottle & let sit overnight at room temperature
  3. Use as a leave-in treatment 20 minutes to overnight or as a rinse after you shampoo; shake well prior to applying
  4. Use as needed (but consistently to see results), about 1-2 times per month

Hoff Thoughts: Rice Water can be used immediately after soaking, but it more beneficial if left to ferment.  The "Scent" will disappear after hair is washed or you can add an essential oil or orange peels if desired while it sits overnight.  Decide how much protein you need, Brown Rice has the least amount of protein, White Rice has more protein and Wild Rice has the most protein.  If hair becomes brittle, you're using too much protein.*
