The effects of rice water are further enhanced if it is left to ferment. Fermented rice water is rice water that is left to ferment and has gone slightly sour.

It is rich in antioxidants, minerals, B vitamins, vitamin E, and traces of pitera, a substance produced during the fermentation process.

The prodigious fermented rice water after several weeks of use cleans the scalp and promotes healthy growth.

Fermentation lowers the pH of the liquid, and this is similar to our hair’s pH, which is also on the lower side (slightly acidic). So, this slightly acidic pH plus the added nutrients through the fermentation process help restore hair’s pH balance, nourish hair follicles to promote healthy hair growth and improve the overall condition of hair.

The remedy comes from a population of China called Huangluo and has become quite popular in other parts of the world for being a natural alternative to achieve perfect hair.
