    Be careful. It can be too much protein for MOST. I'm helping a friend who's hair shredded to pcs after using rice water. It became dry and brittle. It's not for everyone.

    Be careful with YT advice for hair.

    Rice water is just the newest iteration of faddish concoctions to try and improve the condition of your natural hair.

    I do not recommend anyone use this homemade concoction on their hair. You cannot regulate the amount of protein, you cannot regulate the bacterial content that blooms over time that can cause infection on your scalp, or impurities present in the water. Also, the protein content can be extremely high and can cause breakage if you overload your hair with it, especially coily hairtypes. If you want to use rice water, just buy a rice water product off the shelf. It will be safer for your hair that way.
