How to Have Longer Thicker and Straight Hair With Starchy Rice Water Along With Other Herbs
Hair is a very thin structure which is made up of protein called Keratin. A hair follicle anchors each hair into the skin. Little heat can damage our hair. Girls use several hair products like shampoos, conditioners, oils and serum etc. to keep their hair shiny, long, thick and straight.
Nowadays, girls have the greatest desire of having thick, long and straight hairs, for this, they are going for smoothing or hair straightening procedures, in which heat and various chemicals are used. These smoothing or hair straightening procedures lead to permanent damage of hair such as dry hair, hair fall and decreased hair strength.
What is Starchy Rice Water?
Starchy rice water is the leftover water after rice is cooked. This water is very beneficial for our hair, as it makes them thick, shiny and long. Rice water has been used from ancient times to get long, shiny and healthy hair.
Composition:Rice water contains 70-80 % starch, amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals.
How to Make it
It can be made by different way’s some of them are as follows -
- Fermented Rice Water
In this method, first of all we will prepare the rice by taking half glass rice and we will take 1 glass of water. Now we will cook the rice in the boiling water for some time and after that we will filter the rice from the water and this residual water is the starchy rice water.
In this method, we will take about half a cup of uncooked rice and wash them thoroughly, now we will take 2-3 cups of water and pour it into the bowl containing rice. We will soak the rice into this water for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, we will strain the rice water from the rice and we can use it.
3. Fermented Rice Water
Rest of the method is the same as the soaking method, but in this method, before filtering or straining, we will keep the rice water at room temperature for 2 days and allow it to ferment. After 2 days, we will strain the rice water from the rice and we can use it. It is said that fermented rice water contains more minerals than plain rice water.
How to Use It
First of all, wash your hair by using shampoo and after shampooing the hair, wash your hair thoroughly by using normal water. Now apply Rice water over your hair and scalp and massage them properly and leave it for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, wash your hair by using lukewarm water.
