Rice is rich in vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants that support healthy hair. Extracting these nutrients into an infused rice oil allows deeply nourishing strands from root to tip. But what’s the best way to make rice oil for optimal hair growth results?

How to Make Rice Oil for Hair Growth

Making rice oil for hair involves steeping uncooked rice in a carrier oil for 4-6 weeks to allow the oils to fully draw out rice’s beneficial properties. Straining yields a nutrient-dense oil ready for applying to your scalp and strands.


- 1 cup uncooked rice (white or brown)

- 2 cups carrier oil like coconut, olive or sweet almond

- Cheesecloth

- Glass jar for infusing


1. Fill a glass jar with uncooked rice, pressing down firmly.

2. Heat carrier oil slightly until warm, not hot.

3. Pour warmed oil over rice to cover completely.

4. Seal jar, store in cool dark place, shake gently daily.

5. After 4-6 weeks, strain oil through cheesecloth into a bottle.


Massage rice oil into scalp and hair, leave on 30-60 minutes before shampooing out.
