    I do the same. Actually I've never fermented it without the rice still in. No reason, just being lazy.

    :lachen:Yeah girl we found some stuff out! Snoop posted a lot of good info. Apparently the tea seed the Yao women add is the cleanser. That's how they can use rice water to actually cleanse the hair. We're having a hard time finding tea seed powder for a reasonable price so Snoop suggested using soap nuts instead. That's where the ayurvedic stuff came up. :D

    I received my Sirod Naturals Fermented rice leave-in conditioner on Monday. The smell is definitely herbal o_O
    I will report how I feel about it at the end of the month.
    I jumped on the bandwagon in the hopes of stopping my excessive shedding.

    Interesting... I find Aritha to be a bit drying for my hair. I’m after the conditioning and detangling benefits others have reported getting from the RW rinse. I don’t think adding Aritha is going help facilitate that. But y’all let me know how it goes. :look:

    Yeah probably not which is why I'm starting with shikakai. I've never used aritha before, just read a ton about it through the years. I'm looking to ditch my shampoo though (have been for a while) which is why I'm looking to mix a cleanser with it but yes certainly skip that part if it's just the conditioning you're after.

    I found out I’m extremely deficient in Vitamin D and was prescribed 50,000IU capsules that are taken weekly. I wonder how long it will take to see a curb in my shedding...hmmmmm.

    Applied the leave in to the little one and sealed it in with Afro Whisperer sugah foot shortening. It detangled slightly and sunk in.

    Used the leave in on my scalp and it’s tingling nicely. This is my twists after being in 3 weeks. Headed to 4 this Sunday.

    I just put mine in the fridge. The rice is still in it. I’m trying to figure out how to make this into a leave in.

    Mine has been in my cupboard since Sunday. I'm planning on using it today. I've never used this stuff before but based on the description of the smell, DH says I need to open it outside.

    My math skills are lacking, but I started off with 2 cups of water. I was thinking of diluting it 3:1 (plain water: rice water) based on other people's recommendations from online, which means that by the time I finish the jar it will have been fermenting for quite some time (I wash once per week). :(

    I also just realized the random Face Shop face toner I bought on a whim last year has rice water in it. So I'm more open to the idea of trying it on my skin now.

    I took a long hideous and have some catching up to do in this video. I’ve watched translation videos to the Yao women, reading comments, etc

    To my best understanding:

    1) The pick the rice from their rice fields and hand remove all the impurities.

    2) Fill the rice w/ water and let it sit and ferment for 7 days.

    3) After the fermentation for 7 days, bake (the video doesn’t show the water boiling) the rice water with orange peel, tea biscuits, and a Yao secret.

    4) Pour it into the hair. Let it sit for 10-15 mins and rinse ALL of the rice water.

    That’s all I gathered. I used about 2 tbsp of rice* to 6 oz of water. I can ferment for a minimum of 48 hrs with little smell. At 3 wks, I didn’t notice a terrible smell either.

    *premade rice

    I’ve used 3 week old rice water on my face. I just knew my pores would disappear. They didn’t though. Most high end beauty products add fermented ingredients to aid in cell turnover.

    I mixed the rice water with glycerin and less than 2 ounces of oil and used it as a leave in and sprayed some on my scalp. It’s about 8oz of glycerin and 6 ounces of rice water. It smelled like vomit but I’m sure that’s the neem oil :look: my scalp feels calm and I’m going to wait to see how the leave in works.

    @Saludable84
    Not sure how long your RW has been fermenting, but that's exactly how it smells.:look:

    Moreso, like Baby Vomit.:look:

    No one has commented about any fouls smells :look: so I guess im ok. My scalp was in flames from the press, but now it feels really calm after the rice water.

    My hair is also really soft. It is glycerin season for me, so I need to make this work with the rice water. I am going to try for fermenting for 5 days this time and use it as a rinse this weekend. Im going to be honest, leaving the rice in the water to ferment works with my laziness setup and now Ill do this more often. Ill have to get a cheap bag tonight.

    Wow isn't that the one @Lita said they ferment for 30 days or something? And it smells good? They must have some very potent fragrances to mask that smell.:scratchchin:
