Asian cultures have long been reaping the benefits of rice and even consider it to be a symbol of “women and fertility.” But its powers go beyond nutrition. For example, researchers discovered that women in Asia have been using rice water to grow long and healthy hair for centuries. And even though Western women are a bit late to the party, they’re now also enjoying the transformative magic rice has on their hair (and other things too, but more on that later).
