Rice water may not be a new concept in some Asian countries but it definitely is and still finding its place in many homes in India. The water from strained rice is in fact a holy grail for many beauty treatments when it comes to glowing skin and nourished hair. On my hunt for products that are based on rice water, I got my hands on an entire hair care kit made using fermented rice water by WishCare, and here is my detailed review of the same.
The brand claims that this nutrient-rich hair care kit is infused with fermented rice water which helps in providing strength and growth to damaged hair. It has been formulated to provide intensive conditioning and provide Strength and shine to your hair. It is suitable for all hair types.
The hair mask, shampoo, conditioner, and hair oil have natural ingredients like rice water, vitamin E, coconut oil, almond oil, soy protein, etc.
All four products in the hair care kit come in sturdy plastic bottles and tub. The pumps of the shampoo and conditioner are good and it does not pump out too much product there are no spillage issues.
The hair mask tub has a pretty golden lid with a stopper cover. It is not transparent but translucent which is enough to see how much of the product is left.
The consistency of the shampoo and conditioner is semi-flowing, one-string. The hair mask is creamy but easy to spread on your hair. The fragrance is very mild like a baby powder and is quite calming.
The entire set costs Rs 1599 with the hair mask being 200 ml, shampoo and conditioner are 300 ml each and the hair oil is a 200 ml bottle as well.
Before you use the shampoo, do remember that it is an organic product so it is bound to lather much less than what you expect from other products off the shelf. Since I have thick and waist-length hair, I needed around 6 pumps without oiling my hair but when you oil you may need 2 more. It cleanses very well and leaves a very light and pleasant fragrance.
The conditioner is not runny and neither too thick so the application is easy. The bottles come with the directions to use and it is best to stick to them. As for the hair mask, I follow a reverse routine. When I am not using a hair oil, I apply a hair mask on my dry hair and wear a shower cap for 30 minutes. This makes my hair really soft and gives it a shine. So the fermented rice water mask worked beautifully and I loved the outcome for sure.
- Contains no sulphates
- Free from mineral oils, salts, sodium chloride
- Mild fragrance
- Comes with tips, direction and ingredients list printed on the bottles and tub
Lathering may be an issue for some.
My hair has become softer with over a month's usage where I have been shampooing my hair twice a week. You must give this kit a try.
