Additional Tips

  • You can use any variety of rice like white rice, brown rice, jasmine rice, etc.
  • Always rinse the rice once with water to remove dirt and other particles.
  • Try to use organic rice, even though it is bit more expensive than regular rice as the organic produce does not contain pesticides.
  • Do not use undiluted rice water in your hair, as it can result in lumps and may build up in your hair over time.
