Growing your hair and keeping it healthy can be a slow and frustrating process. With countless TikTok videos racking up millions of views claiming miracle results, hair growth can be confusing. Let’s explore the hype around rice water for hair health.

Rice water has been used as a hair treatment for centuries in China, Japan, and all over Southeast Asia. It is rich in starches and contains B and E vitamins, magnesium, antioxidants, amino acids, and minerals that help to strengthen the hair, increase shine, and detangle. However, there is limited scientific research on the effects of rice water in terms of hair growth. Some evidence suggests that inositol, a component found in rice water, may promote hair growth by penetrating the hair shaft and repairing damaged hair, but more research is still needed to fully understand its effects.

While rice water may not be a miracle hair growth treatment, it can still be a natural and affordable way to improve the health and appearance of your hair and scalp!
