Rice Water for Hair: Why you should use it

The popularity of using Rice Water for Hair is on the rice. And there is a good reason for this. Rice water is known to bring many benefits to your hair.


The trick was first used by a tribe called Red Yao in a Chinese Village called Huangluo. It was known as the land of Rapunzels. The Village has a certification from Guinness Book of Records as the ‘World’s Longest Hair Village’.

And if you haven’t guessed already, the women in the village use rice water on their hair. The presence of Inositol is what does the trick.
