Here is how you can make a rice water spray
Take ½ cup of organic white or brown rice and rinse thoroughly. Transfer the clean rice to a separate bowl and soak it in 2 cups of water for about two hours.
Now strain the rice and store the water in an airtight container or bottle. Let it ferment overnight. Transfer it into a spritzing bottle and add a teaspoon of castor oil, which is known to accelerate hair growth.
