    I fermented black and mahogany rice for a week. It smells sweeter than brown rice, even at the beginning of the process.

    A question about the protein in the rice: Are people feeling the affects of protein or is it the starch that is stiffening their hair?

    Me neither, but people have warned me to be careful and that they had soft hair at first then it changed. I feel like thr black rice may be stronger than the brown, but I have to use it a few more times before deciding which one I like better.

    I add fenugreek seeds to my rice water and then saturate my hair with it and my DIY flaxseed gel. my curls are popping literally and hair is super moisturized.

    Just wondering if there are any more testimonials since this thread started.

    I'm still using it but because I'm always in protective style mode I haven't really checked/noticed any growth. After this batch of black rice rinse, I think I'll switch back to brown rice.

    Becareful ladies, it made my hair brittle and dry. It was my fault though. I used it twice in one day, as a pre-poo and after washing my hair, I used it with my deep conditioner. My hair is relaxed and I could not comb it properly. It got tangled and the texture felt weird. I lost a lot of hair. My hair is feeling a little better after three weeks. I only use it once per wash day and on my roots only now. I would have stopped using it but I like the anti-shedding benefit of it.

    Almost done with my first bottle of APB Rice Water Spray. I loved it! Already repurchased it.

    Will be moving on to the Sirod Naturals Black Rice Spray next. Also incorporating Curls and Potions Chebe Mint Growth Stimulating Rice Water on my scalp on wash day and occasionally throughout the week when I'm in twists.

    So recently I have been adding fenugreek seeds to my rice water mixture. Like you, my curls are popping and I've noticed higher moisture retention throughout the week along with increased slip when detangling! Rice and fenugreek have been game changers!!

    I think moving forward I will start making my own DC using the rice/fenugreek water and adding some bentointe and rhassoul clay to it! Right now I am using it as a pre-poo and a hair rinse, but I think I will start experimenting with it being part of my DC routine (just to speed things up and to have fewer steps in my hair-wash routine.

    I haven't read the last few pages, but can you tell me what a clay and rice water DC would do?
    I did that by accident a few weeks ago, and slept in a clay and rice water mix over night.... my hair was popping for weeks.
    I think I want to try it again, but now, I kinda want to know the science behind it.

    i ordered from sirodnaturals & i ordered the orgnaic fermented black rice water.
    is the spray for everyday use, or does it need to be rinsed out daily (has a strong smell)

    Do you ferment the fenugreek with the rice or you add the fenugreek after the fermentation?

    Growth, I cannot say. Ive have maybe half an inch but Im guessing thats normal. For me, the main thing is easier to manage hair and less shedding. My scalp has been better and I notice when my scalp in maintained (exfoliators and black soap) I have less shedding. I dont look to reduce shedding, but since taking better care of my scalp, I notice shedding has decreased a bit. I just took a week off of using it, but so far, not ill effects.

    I'm currently in crochet twists and I can't wait to take them down so I can treat my hair with rice water.

    I used the Lundberg brand and I got it in the organic section of Fortinos. I'm pretty sure that I've seen this brand in a bunch of other places.

    I've used the red rice a few more times since my last post. Even diluted, I find it too strong. So I'm going to throw the rest of that batch out. (It's been in the fridge for over a month.)

    I'm not sure if I'll continue using rice water, though.

    I’ve been lurking for a while, checking out the available resources as well as the research.
    I think I’m ready to step into this but not on the DIY side. I have a cart on Etsy ready to go through with Nature’s ego:
    • Rice milk & fenugreek moisturizer
    • Rice water rinse
    • Rice water spray
    I really want to try the fenugreek products too but the majority have coconut oil.... I’ll keep considering it.

    Scent (and now Price + Shipping Cost) is a real deterrent.:nono:

    Glad I have no interest in this line, at this time.:ohwell:
