Is Rice water a perfect pre-poo treatment for Type 4 Hair.

Your girl is on the rice water hype & I might be hyping you with the rice water for growth post lol. Catch up on my first rice water trial post here. I noticed a decrease in shed hair after taking down my 6 weeks mini twists & am thinking maybe just maybe rice water might be a blessing to my hair, will keep you updated.

Hello ManEmbracers, how are y’all doing. I hope your hair is growing and skin is glowing. Welcome to my blog.

So, I did try using rice water as my pre-poo treatment product on my wash day & lemme fill you in about it but first, have no clue what pre-poo is? Read about it here & a detailed post on rice water here.

Rice water as pre-poo

Let’s get back to my rice water pre-poo. I fermented the rice for a week, added lemon peels to curb the smell cos it stinks. Other than lemon, orange peels you can add essential oils(lavender, tea tree, rosemary)

Pre-poo process.

  • Sieved rice water into a spray bottle
  • Added shungi oil to the rice water
  • Sprayed the rice water, a section at a time, finger detangled then twisted each section.

I didn’t wash my hair in twists as I do because I had to give my scalp thorough cleansing after 6 weeks of mini twists. After cleansing, my hair felt super dry. You would think I didn’t pre-poo. Side note, I didn’t use a clarifying shampoo.

Will I try pre-pooing with rice water again? Am not sure, simply because I didn’t like the “dry hair” feel after cleansing, the moisturizing deep conditioner restored the moisture though.

Have you tried using rice water as pre-poo? How did it go?
