So just make sure you clean them properly And peel them and we will be using them in our rice water Now that we have all our ingredients we are going to pour our rice water into our pot You need only the water not the rice. Now you can discard the rice But I cook this rice and I ate it because I don’t love to waste anything we are now going to add in our Orange peels into the water And you will cover that up The moment it comes to a boiling temperature You can turn your stove off and wait for it to cool down Keep them in a big barrel for half a month or months then after that we use them to wash our hair What she is saying is that after they have prepared their rice water Exactly like the way I show you how to prepare it they now Transfer that water into a big barrel like this. Yes, at least I got something similar to theirs right, and then they allow the water to ferment for about 15 days or 30 days And then they proceed to use it on their hair Like in the summer every 3 or 4 days and in the winter once a week Yeah How long would it take when you wash your hair We apply the rice water on our hair for 20mins 20 minutes later, we wash our hair, you know in the river What’s the benefits of using rice water on your hair It is good for the hair after washing the hair It will become very soft and black and no white hair, even the very old grandma You know in the village she has no white hair This way of washing hair has passed down from generations to generations Okay family, so this is the end of the video now that I have shown you the original rice water recipe Directly from the Yao women in China if you would love to see how I make my Version of the rice water because I use it differently from them I will leave those video down in the description box for you And since I made this rice water, I will leave it for 15 days And then I will also use it on my hair If you would love to see how I use it, then subscribe to my channel if you like this video Please don’t forget to give me a like leave a comment down below and subscribe I will see you in my next video Bye.

  3. 15days! Its a lot. I suggest you to store it in something tightly closed. Hermetically. Otherwise you will run away to leave your house lolllll it will smell like …. lolllll

  4. Hi Selina, I definitely don't wash my rice this well so thanks a lot for letting me know to use my palms. Also, I didn't know you had to add something acidic but that is great to know! Wow!!!! I was clearly doing it wrong LOL. I did hear about the grays and I do think that is very true b/c I don't have that many and I had grays since I was in my teens. LOL. GREAT VIDEO AND THANKS A LOT FOR SHARING. FW.

  5. This is wonderful, Selina. Thank you very much for this information , that means we have been using rice water badly. Thank God for this secret, and thank you for being open, may God bless you my dear.

  6. To boil or not to boil? That is the question LOL Ive seen so many variations, I'm not sure if boil method is best or worst…

  7. Hi Sweetie, have been following your videos, have bought your products and now using them. I thought your suggestion was to use Black rice for better results? I am trying to keep to same regime so I can see what really promotes my hair growth. Thank you.
