    Hi!
    So, I cut 6 inches 4 months ago. Ive got about 3 back. I was surprised. So, I definitely think the rice water works. Just to go back to what Ive been doing:

    -Leave rice in water at RT for 4 days. Then refrigerate for 2.
    -Remove some water on wash day and heat it a little for use.
    -Place water on mostly the scalp and then the hair with deep conditioner for at least 10 minutes.
    -Remaining rice water from the fridge sits in the fridge until next wash day.
    -Once rice water is depleted, refill the same rice with more water and leave at room temperature to start process again. Only reuse actual rice twice (so for me, it takes about 2 months to use one batch of rice).
    -Rinse 4 weeks, rest one week.

    That's about it. I want to stick with it until the end of the year. Ill be back on Shea Butter next month.

    Used Natures Ego Fermented Black Rice water leave in for the second time since I purchased it. Nice ingredients.

    Thanks for recommending this, as I'd prefer not to make the rice water myself. Not sure why, but I think I'll spring for this product and see how it goes. How did it make you hair feel after first use? Have you witnessed any hair growth as yet? What about the texture?

    Ive been retaining my length overall since incorporating rice water period. This product is fairly new for myself. Its the second time Ive used it. It smells nice. Its a pink color with a wet creamy texture. No grit and smooths into the hair really well. I like it more for refreshing and maintaining the hair. Its light after washing so you might have to pair it with something else for a deep moisture but its very silky in texture @awhyley

    I think I'm looking at the wrong thing then. I'm looking at purchasing the below;
    (eta: I'm seeing that they're selling this as a 'bulk product' but I'm not intending to spend $175)

    [Correction: Found it at etsy for $9.50 (12fl oz), so we're back in business. Scrolled down a bit further on the esty site, and found the product that you're using. Thanks!]

    Yep, that's it. I appreciate that. Not sure whether I want a leave in or a rinse, (cause it might be easier for me to spray as needed), but now I'm seeing a whole slew of products that have me :spinning:

    I can feel my product junkie side awakening :angeldevil:
    (and I was doing so well) :laugh:

    P.S. I saw that you purchased 'Chebe Rice water' from another company in another thread, and wanted to know how it compared.)

    Im using Stunnababez rice water leave in spray frequently. Just added Curls and Potions Moisture mist in and used this Natures Ego rice water leave in for the second time.

    I've tried Sirod Naturals Black Rice water spray but prefer Stunna babez and Curls and Potions over that because of the moisture I get from those two.

    I wont repurchase the Sirod or the Natures Ego @awhyley

    I'll make a decision and purchase on the weekend. Since I don't live in the States, I don't know when anything will arrive, but hopefully by Christmas I'll see some considerable growth/retention.

    (Popping out to a quick meeting, will check on this thread periodically).
