I’ve been experiencing some hair problems for the last couple of weeks/months. My hair looks dry and frizzy and it does not look very healthy and beautiful anymore. I was so desperate last week, I decided to google for magical cures. And one day I came across this rice water hair mask and it was so easy to make, that I decided to give it a go. I also found a lot of videos on YouTube about this topic and some people really love this hair mask.
So yes my hair was really a problem area at this moment as you can see. I tried different shampoos and conditioner but nothing seemed to work. And I only washed my hair 2 – maybe 3 – times a week. I already knew that washing your hair daily would damage it more.
But this time I decided to use a hair mask. I have to admit I never really use hair masks. It takes a lot of time to use a mask and I prefer to do something else with my precious time. But now I decided to take the Sundays off from work, I have more time for myself and my hair. And then I found this rice water hair mask.
All you need it a container/bowl with water and rice. Some people let the rice soak for 30 minutes but apparently for the best results, you let the rice soak for 24. Warning: it can smell bad/sour after 24 hours. So wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner after using this hair mask. I have to admit I let it soak for 12 hours, not 24 hours.
You basically wash your hair with the rice water and you leave it in for 20-30 minutes. And you wash it out with cold water because that is better for your hair. And let it dry naturally so you can’t damage your hair again with your blowdryer.

And this is how my hair looks now. I have to say that it looks less frizzy now. I have to say that I didn’t brush my hair before taking this photo. So it looks better now. But I am still not convinced by this ‘magical ‘hair mask. I saw different results on Google. Their hair looked so soft, shiny and healthy after using this hair mask. And while I was seeing a little bit of improvement, I am not convinced that this mask does wonder. But maybe my hair is so damaged that I have to use more hair mask until it looks better.
The next step is to cut off my own hair first. My hair has gotten pretty long and I want to cut it off just a little bit.
