Fermented rice water: A hair care secret from the Yao Women!

Yao women in the ancient Chinese village of Huangluo have hair as long as 1.4 meters and don’t grey hair until their 80’s They have been using fermented rice water to wash & nourish their hair for centuries

Blending science with the Yao tradition…

Kopryza is an exclusive hair care ingredient made from the fermentation of Black Kavuni rice,

a rare variety of rice from South India using Bacillus bacteria

Why Black Rice ?

Black rice is not only loaded with iron, fiber as well as protein content but also with the best antioxidant element called Anthocyanin. This Phytonutrient makes the outer skin of the grain look darker with a hue of purple to black, an indicator of an antioxidant factor.

The content of Anthocyanin is higher in black rice in comparison to other rice types like rice, brown rice, or whole grains.

The scalp and the hair are nourished with essential nutrition from the fermented rice water. After exposing hair to heavy sunlight and dust wash the hair with a nutrients-filled extract of black rice.

Fermenting rice water enhances the existing vitamins and nutrient levels in it, which nourish your hair follicles. It promotes healthy hair growth and improves the overall condition of your hair.

Fermentation impact

The microorganism feeds from the rice starch and creates an array of new components

Fermentation brings down the pH levels of the rice water to that of your hair and helps close the cuticles, thereby protecting the hair.

The heavy amino acids present in rice water, in particular, help in the regeneration of hair and aid in faster growth of your hair

Rice water contains inositol, a carbohydrate that repairs damaged hair. This inositol stays in the hair even after the rice water is rinsed off, acting as a shield and protecting your hair from damage.
