People on TikTok Are Discovering That Rice Water Can Be Great For Your Hair
When it came to showering, I thought I had everything figured out: rise, lather, repeat. But as it turns out, making a small tweak to your hair routine, like adding a rice-water rinse, can add a lot of benefits. The tradition of rinsing your hair with rice water originates in Asia but is recently gaining widespread popularity thanks to TikTok. In this special beauty ritual, the water left behind from rinsing rice is used as a soak for your hair.
The idea is that after shampooing, you pour rice water over your hair and let it sit for two to three minutes. Then, you rinse the rice water out. It leaves your hair looking shinier and feeling stronger, and some people even say that rice water is good for hair growth. Because of the recent spike in popularity, the hashtag for #RiceWater on TikTok has gotten over 350.3 million views.
