As an important part of daily beauty regimes, each of us regularly uses products, typically in the
form of a viscous liquid, that is suitable for cleaning hair. This is the easiest and most conventional
way to make hair clean. However, most people notices that homemade shampoo based on the
right choice of ingredients can bring more benets than any other things from supermarket.

The majority of us possibly came across dierent sources mentioning the usage of rice in skin and
hair products. And then a reasonable question rises: Is it possible to wash hair with fermented rice
water? Yes, denitely! But if you wish to take out much of usefulness from natural procedure,

What is Fermentation? NATURAL REMEDIES FACE & BODY CARE HAIR CARE HERBS & TINCTURE OILS

Fermentation is the conversion of a carbohydrate such as sugar into an acid or an alcohol. More
specically, it can refer to the use of yeast to change sugar into alcohol or the use of bacteria to
create lactic acid in certain foods. This process occurs naturally in many dierent foods given the
right conditions, and humans have intentionally made use of it for many thousands of years.

In ancient times people did not know the process of freezing and canning, and fermenting was the
only method they could know. For example, milk could be fermented into cheese. Processed sh (a
sauce) was widely used in the diet of ancient Rome. People always appreciated the nutritional value
and the unique properties of pickled cucumbers, carrots and beets. They knew that fermented
foods could be kept longer than the unfermented ingredients used to make them. For example,
fresh milk goes bad easily, but fermented dairy products such as yogurt and cheese can be kept
longer. The Japanese use fermented (with a special mold) rice, barley and soybeans for cooking
their national dishes. And in India, dishes from fermented rice and beans are very popular.

Even nowadays fermentation is used in various ways in our day-to-day lives. But who knew that
NATURAL REMEDIES FACE & BODY CARE HAIR CARE HERBS & TINCTURE OILS
fermented rice water could be so good for hair condition and solving various hair problems?

First, lets start our talk about benets of fermented rice rinse for hair. I guess, there are some
facts you still didnt know.

Rice contains so called water-soluble vitamins and minerals and it is more abundant of
vitamins of B group (by the way, B vitamins help hair cells to produce black pigment).
Rice contains rich protein and amino acids and the process of fermentation method will make
the process of protein turn into amino acids, so nutrition value of such rice is very rich.
Rice water boosts hair elasticity and decreases surface friction. It is rich in inositol a
carbohydrate that everyone must look for. Not only it protects hair against damage, but it also
repairs it. The inositol remains inside hair cells even after rinsing. In other words, it protects a
top-notch protection over long periods of time.
Fermented rice water is acidic, our hair is suitable for acidic environments. Rice water makes
hair smooth and soft so regular wash with rice will bring amazing results and you will wonder
how this possible that rice water is much better than any commercial products you used to
apply on your hair for such long time.

It is interesting to note that in article The eect of rinse water obtained from the washing of rice
(YU-SU-RU) as a hair treatment published in Journal of Cosmetic Chemists, 2010, Japanese
researchers identied the of rice water benets if applied on hair. They took an example of court
ladies of the Heian Period, whose beautiful long hair reached to the oor, were said to have
combed their hair each day using rinse water obtained from the washing of rice. Researchers
found that rice exhibited hair care eects, such as reducing surface friction and increasing hair
elasticity.

How to Make Fermented Rice Water Shampoo?


Fermented rice water can be directly used to rinse the hair avoiding using shampoo. Long-term use
of such homemade shampoo will make your hair darker and thicker.

Here are tips how to prepare natural rice shampoo:

NATURAL REMEDIES FACE & BODY CARE HAIR CARE HERBS & TINCTURE OILS
Remember that the proportions for making rice water are not accurate. The
amount of each ingredient is not specically measured. It may be dierent
every time as it depends on the amount of rice that and water that were being
used.

Thoroughly rinse rice to remove any dirt from grains. In this step it is important to use clean
(better ltered) water because tapped water contains chemicals and other impurities. Also use
clean water while cooking rice.

First, collect water again (not the water you use on the initial rinse to get o any dirt) after you
let rice stay in water for 15-20 minutes and then drain. For example, if you cook rice two to three
times a week, you should be able to collect enough liquid for two to three hair washes.

Then leave the rice water at room temperature for a day or two until it turns slightly sour and
starts to ferment. After that most people advice to boil the liquid in order to stop fermentation
process (most of them write about this tip on their websites). It is a huge mistake. Fermented
rice water contains enough useful nutrients and once you boil this liquid you will get plain
water in which all vitamins are gone. It is the same as if you decide to drink beer but boil it
beforehand. From the other hand, liquid can be pasteurized. Pasteurization kills bacteria and
the easiest way to do this is microwaving. Exposure to microwaves delivers energy evenly and
deeply into the whole liquid, it allows for gentler and shorter heating, so that almost all heat-
sensitive substances in the rice water are preserved. So, if you prepared rice water and want it
be nutritious to your hair never boil it before application! Just place it in a fridge to stop
fermentation process. If you wish to have nice scent on your hair you can add few drops of
essential oils (for example, lavender, rosemary or tea tree oil).
Anyway the resulting liquid contains no preservatives so it cannot be stored even in fridge more
than a week. It will usually last about a 5-6 days and after that you have to prepare another
portion of rise water for hair.

water before use.

If you think that fermented rice shampoo takes much time to prepare then I suggest you to try
plain rice water for hair. Follow simple instructions below:

First rinse the rice with about a cup of water to remove any dirt or impurities.
Then, place the rice in a bowl and pour it with water. Let the rice soak for 30 minutes. Swirl it
around or lightly knead it until the water turns cloudy. This will help the vitamins and minerals
seep into the water, creating a nourishing rinse for your hair.
Now strain out the rice water into a clean bowl. Your rice water is ready to use!

Why Fermented Rice Water is Better than Plain One?

It is interesting to note that washing your hair with fermented rice water is much better than
rinsing with unfermented or plain one. Fermentation lowers the pH of the liquid, and this is similar
to our hairs pH, which is also on the lower side (slightly acidic). As a result, slightly acidic pH plus
the added nutrients through the fermentation process help restore hairs pH balance, nourish hair
follicles to promote healthy hair growth, and improve general hair condition.

Rice water is eective natural treatment not only for hair but for skin as well! If you want to learn

Tips & Rules: How to Use Fermented Water as Shampoo

to warn you that this natural recipe has nothing in common with commercial one there wont be a

dont expect immediate results after rst use. It is possible that you wont like the eect after
NATURAL REMEDIES FACE & BODY CARE HAIR CARE HERBS & TINCTURE OILS
application of rice water this is just because you hair needs time to get used to it. So thats why
rst results may disappoint you a little but keep patience.

Apply rice water on damp hair. Before taking shower, you need to do some preparations take
a container with rice water with you. Once you got you hair wet, pour rice water very slowly and
massage it gently using ngertips. You can do the massage for about 5 minutes. Make sure you
wet hair with rice water completely. Then rinse your hair with cool water. If you have long hair
and wish to take a shower immediately, gently coil it in a high bun and use a big hair clip to hold
it up.
After washing your hair with rice water, dont use blow dryer let it dry in natural way. Dont
worry about unpleasant smell of fermented rice water on your hair once your hair is dry this
scent will disappear.
It is not necessary to wash your hair every day, two times a week will be enough. After a month
of such cleaning method application of rice water on hair will give visible eects.

I have ne, wavy thin hair that tangles easily. Ive tried rice water for hair and it
surprised me with the results. It leaves my hair silky soft and untangled while taking
shower! I dont even need to use the conditioner and my hair is soft and very manageable. I put few
drops of lavender essential oil to the rice liquid. Pleasant and the fragrant scent lingers in my hair
most of the day. I cant stop touching my hair so, so soft and shiny!

Lesly, 34 NATURAL REMEDIES FACE & BODY CARE HAIR CARE HERBS & TINCTURE OILS
I was surprised to know that rice water can be used on hair care, especially as natural
shampoo. I thought its better for skin. Rice water is one of my favorite remedies. But it
wont remove build-up from your hair like any conventional shampoo. Its more of a conditioning
cleanser. So I cannot say that it is good as a shampoo. It will make your hair soft though and add
more volume to it. All you need to do is to use rice water as a nal rinse after you wash your hair.

OlimpiaSpark, 19
I like to use rice water on my hair. Ive used it after shampooing and then rinsed it out,
then conditioned my hair. After a while I decided to refuse applying any commercial
shampoo and chose washing hair with plain rice water. I feel that it doesnt leave my hair super
clean but it makes them super shiny and soft. I suered severe hair loss for several months. After
regular usage of rice water, this problem nally stopped bothering me!

I have very damaged hair. I went from dark brown to white blonde. I knew I should do
something to save my hair. So I preferred to use fermented rice water. One of my
Chinese friends advised me this traditional remedy for hair. This works wonders and oh that smell!
I dont like it though rice water leaves my hair soft and lustrous. I think rice water helped me to
reduce dandru and grow my hair faster. It is really working!

RedHairDemon
I wash my hair with rice water twice a week. The liquid is smelly and fermented too but I
dont mind it. Everyone knows that a lot of the benecial chemicals come from the
fermentation process. To avoid smell I add some peppermint, orange or other essential oils to it. I
did not smell anything after I rinsed this and the conditioner out of the hair at all. The time before
this, I did a nal rinse of rinse of fermented rice water as a leave in. That time it did smell sour on
the hair until the hair was dry. That smell is ne, at least, I feel my hair condition is much better
than before. Im happy with that!

I know that every beauty product, DIY or not, will work for everyone. But it includes
anything containing natural ingredients which are a great advantage. You never know
what works and what doesnt until you try. The same situation happened with me when I decided
to experiment with rice water for hair. Anyway, Ive been using rice water for several months now,
and its been extremely gentle on my sensitive scalp. I use it twice a week. I love using a cold rice
water on my hair, it makes my hair so shiny like never before. Since it isnt drying and has no
articial fragrances and chemicals, I can use it as often as I want without having to worry about my
skin reaction. Usually, I faced the problem of dandru if the product turns out to be not suitable for
my sensitive scalp. Im pleased with the results!

Jade, 33
I have short, color processed hair and cant go a day without washing it because it is
sticking up all over the place when I get up in the morning. Most shampoos that I have
tried dont do much to lift my thin hair while keeping it light and bouncy. So I decided to use rice
water for hair, I read many positive reviews about this natural beauty product. The rice liquid smell
sour so I was afraid my hair will get that smell. To avoid this I added few drops of patchouli
essential oil to the liquid. After I washed my hair with scented rice water, I noticed my hair became
thicker, I couldnt believe it! When I blow dry I do notice more bounce and softness in my hair on
days that I use rice water. This also doesnt leave any residue in my hair. I have a sensitive scalp and
this helps soothe it. Also, my hair feels more voluminous and thicker!

Helga Ostrid, 20
Ive tried various natural recipes for my hair. The problems is that I have sandy blonde,
ne hair. Each strand is ne, but it is really thick. My scalp gets very oily if I dont wash
my hair every other day. I never wanted to use conventional shampoo every day to keep my hair
clean. So I tried to nd a solution. I thought it will be a good idea to use rice water instead of
shampoo sometimes. Rise water didnt seem to clean my oily hair at all. But My hair felt silky and

i did try it as a mask (a clothe soaked in rice water) and as toner. after only doing this for a
day and got tiny hurting red spots ( i had to stop immediately. I dont know of any allergies, i
eat rice constantly. has anyone had the same experience? i even washed the rice three times
before soaking the rice. i always WASH RICE THREE TIMES, also before cooking. it needs to be
cleaned from all sorts of stu. (be aware that rice is stored in huge piles in big storehouses
before it gets packaged, you dont want to know what things are running and ying around
there, do you really want them running on your face? )

Actually, I already know about using rice water as face wash since long ago. But, I just found
out that rice water can actually be used to wash hair just recently. Women from a tribe in
China (Yao ethnic, from Huangluo village, usually wash their hair using rice water. The women
in that tribe is known to have beautiful-long-black hair, and rarely have any gray hair until the
age of 80. From the pictures, their hair are indeed very beautiful.
So, then, I tried to use rice water as a shampoo substitute. Well, you know, I am a fan of
fermented stu. So, this time I tried using rice water that is left to ferment overnight in a
room temperature. After leaving it overnight, the rice water will smell a little bit sour, but still
pleasant. The rice water then can be used to wash hair as usual. By the way, I also use it to
wash my face and body )
The result is amazing. This is currently my favorite shampoo substitute. Not only cleansing,
this water also makes my hair super soft and smooth. For me, its even better than vinegar.

Hi, Martha! Basically, you can use rice water as soon as it got fermented. There is no
special condition to keep it in the fridge for certain time before rst application. You
just need to stop fermentation process placing rice liquid in the fridge as it was
described. Storage of natural rice water also implies that it must be kept there for not
longer than a week.

Hi, Trista! For your oily hair fermented rice water must work great. Using rice liquid may
leave a feeling of greasy hair because it is quite concentrated and it is better to dilute
with warm water in proportion 1:2. Rinse you hair with rice water immediately after
shampooing, combine with gentle scalp massage and make sure hair solution is a little
cool so it will close hair cuticle and make it smooth and shiny after drying. If you dont
like rice water odor while washing, add few drops of essential oils (patchouli, vanilla,
rose or geranium) to leave oral scent on hair. I hope my advice will be helpful. Anyway,
let me know whether it worked for you. Good luck!

Anna Post Author JANUARY 27, 2016 10:23 AM

Hi, Samantha! I tried to answer all your questions, hope this information will be useful
to you )
1. On the one hand, brown rice has higher nutritional value in comparison with white
rice and it is possible to use it successfully in hair care. On another hand, brown rice
contains more amount of arsenic which is accumulated in the outer layers of grains.
This element is known to be toxic and poisoning with its high doses may become the
main reason for hair loss. Nevertheless, level of arsenic in brown rice itself cannot
provoke intoxication or other unpleasant side eects but if applied on hair too often
then some doubt may arise. So, the choice of white rice for hair rinse would be better.
2. If you are afraid that rice water may change dyed hair color or wash it out
signicantly dont worry, it wont happen. After fermentation process is nished, rice
water becomes a little acidic and acts as conditioner on hair tightening its cuticles and,
thus, making hair shiny and silky. Logically, dye pigments penetrate and remain deep
into the hair structure, so since rice water smooths the outer layer of hair, the dye
cannot be washed out so easily.
3. For long hair you can prepare a container of fermented rice water (500 ml) and then
dilute it with clean water until you get enough amount of liquid to rinse the whole
length of hair.
Good luck!

Hi Deb,
I made several cups of fermented rice water to use for my hair and as a nal body/face

painful and started producing discharge within a couple hours. I ended up rinsing my
eyes with cool water and used a cleansing/disinfecting contact solution rinse
(Thankfully had it in the cupboard. The swelling and pain went down and I was left with
a little redness.
I really liked the the rice water and would like to use it in the future, but will be much
more careful not to get it in my eyes. Hope this helps!

Actually I oil my hair before washing it as my hair is very dry. So can I use shampoo and then
use this rice- water?

HI. I am trying to wash o a keratin treatment. And I have had really good success with this
but, I think that a little of the keratin is still left in the ends of my hair. Will rice water help rid
the ends of my hair from keratin.

Hi
I have started using rice water. I see that my hair has gone very dry and since I also apply it
on roots, there is a lot of build-up leading to dandru. Because of this and the fact that hair is
getting dry and damaged, my hair has started falling recently. Its so dry and tangled that it
becomes dicult to brush as well.
Here is how I use it?
I read at some websites and they say that I can boil the rice and then collect the water
instead of using just the rinsed water. I have been doing that.
I apply it on my roots and length of the hair and leave it for 15 minutes or so. Then I wash it
out.
Am I doing anything wrong? Or is there any any reason besides rice water that may be
causing this problem in my hair?
Appreciate your guidance.

Ive seen such eects when people used not diluted rice water. First of all, check pH
level of solution; add some clear water to reduce pH.
You can try boiled rice water as well.
From the other hand, depending on your hair properties, maybe rice water is not
suitable for you all. If you still experience your problems after using boiled or diluted
rice water, just stop using it. Some time ago a young lady turned to me with exactly
same problem and our decision was to change her daily hair routines and eliminated
masks with high pH level.
