Lately, I’ve been hearing about using Rice Water to strengthen hair…Apparently, the cloudy water holds nutrients that repair the hair cuticle….I’m not gonna get all sciencey about it but I will tell you what I did and the results…which I am very happy with.
I’m always looking for budget friendly at home remedies to recommend to my clients. All beauty industry professionals will tell you that at home maintenance extends the life of any salon and spa services, giving you the best bang for your buck.
So firstly, my hair strands are thin & curly, but I have a lot of it! Also, I round brush it aka blow dry with my ion Ionic Conditioning Hair Dryer & finish it off with with my ion Magnesium Flat Iron during the winter and wear it natural during the summer…I wash my hair with castle soap or vinegar one a week and I condition with Aloe Vera + Jojoba a few times a week…just to give you an idea of my “hair history”….
But moving right along….
I added 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice and let it sit over night.
I poured the cloudy water my hair, covered it with a plastic cap
I towel dried my hair afterwards and added aloe together with jojoba, lavender and frankincense…I have a pre-made hot oil mixture that I have on hand.
My hair feels SO SOFT!!…and the rice water help repair a lot of heat damage. My scalp feels clean and free of build up. I noticed my curl patterned returned and my hair felt fuller and thicker, especially at the ends. Super rejuvenating and refreshing.
Has anyone else ever tried this? Let me know your thoughts and experiences!
People are always complementing my skin and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve shared this D.Y.I. detox face mask recipe…so here it goes:
Non-Metallic Mixing bowl
Spoon or Facial Spatula
Wet face with warm water or use facial steamer to open pores. Next, mix paste with 1 tbsp. of water and 1 tbsp of water and add 6 drops of Tea Tree Oil. Apply baking soda paste mixture to face and scrub gently to remove sweat and skin residue. Finish this step by swiping away all left over paste with a Rose Water moistened cotton ball.
Be sure to clean and dry bowl for use in the next step.
Detox Face + Clean pores
Now mix together 1 tbsp. of Bentonite Clay, 1 tsp. of Turmeric along with 1/2 tsp. of Activated Charcoal. Add 1 tbsp or 2 tbsp of water to the dry ingredients and mix with spoon or facial spatula until smooth and apply directly to face and neck.
