HOW TO PREPARE RICE WATER
You may think that the water you rinse rice with is rice-water, but you’d be wrong. While it’s perfectly fine to use it, you’re not going to experience the same health benefits as you would if you use original rice-water (something you get from water that has had rice boiled in it.
It’s a good idea to pour more water into the rice-water mixture than you normally would when making it for a meal.

Or, you can apply the water to your face and hair.
