How you style your hair can change the shape of your face. And for many women, hair is also a source of pride and even identity.
Rice water has long been used in Asia for clear skin and long, luscious hair.
The Yao minority ethnic women from Huangluo Village, in Guangxi Province, in southern China, have one striking feature in common—their extraordinarily long hair that stays black until they are around 80 years old. via EpochTimes
With their average hair length of about 6 feet, the Yao ethnic women made it to the Guinness Book of World Records as the “world’s longest hair village.” Part of their secret to having such long hair lies in washing it with fermented rice water.
What Can Rice Do For Your Skin and Hair?
This grain is rich in antioxidants, minerals, vitamin E, and traces of pitera, a substance produced during the fermentation process.
These nutrients in the rice water help to heal scars and reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and inflammation, leaving the skin with a healthy glow (1).
Rice also contains iron, zinc and B-complex vitamins (2) that are essential for hair growth (3).
