To wash your hair with rice water, start by shampooing your hair as usual and rinsing thoroughly with warm water. Once all the shampoo is out, use a cup or a squeeze bottle to apply the rice water to your scalp. Then, apply it thoroughly on your scalp and the length of your hair. Leave the rice water on your hair for 20 to 30 minutes so that the inositol can fully coat each strand, which helps protect it from damage and breakage. Finally, wash off the rice water from your hair with cold water and style your hair as usual. Keep reading to get more tips from our beauty co-author, including how to make your own rice water!
