Get Super Shiny Bollywood-Grade Hair


Ever watch a Bollywood film? Those Indian movie starlets have THE BEST HAIR don’t they? Yes, it’s probably in their magnificent genes, but there ARE a couple of tricks you could employ to try and achieve the same shiny and beautiful result.


Here is a crazy trick to shiny hair

According to Youtube star, INDIANGIRL Trisha you should use rice water. Yes, rice water. 


Step 1

Soak plain rice in water for 2 – 5 hours, the longer the better. After a few hours the rice water will start to ferment and smell a bit weird but she assures us that this is completely normal. Once soaked, crush the now soft-ish, rice with your hands and then strain the liquid into another container. You should probably toss the rice. Apparently, the rice water is now infused with a carbohydrate called inositol, which helps repair hair damage. The liquid is now also purportedly full of amino acids that strengthen the roots and increase volume for super shine. 


Step 2

Then you add 4 – 6 tablespoons of organic raw apple cider vinegar (apparently lemon juice also works in a pinch). The apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid that helps strip old product off of your hair for even more liquid shine. 


Step 3

Before you use your new hair rinse, get some TréSEMME Keratin Smooth Hair Oil and massage it into your hair and scalp for 10 minutes. 


Step 4

Wash your hair with shampoo as normal. But don’t use conditioner INSTEAD use the rice water mix you’ve just made to rinse your hair.


According to INDIANGIRL Trisha, if you don’t get smooth and shiny results after the first try, repeat this process 2 – 3 more times. We don’t know if it will work. But it sounds worth a try!
