    I've used a FRW rinse several times this year and my hair likes it as long as I follow up with a conditioner. I keep it pretty simple, I rinse about 1/2 cup jasmine rice and place in jar. Add a few cups of water and a citrus peel and let sit on the counter for 24 hours shaking occasionally. Shampoo scalp, then soak length in jar (after straining and disposing of rice) and pour remainder over my scalp. I let sit while shaving and doing shower stuff, rinse and condition. The first time I tried it, I applied after conditioning and it made my hair a little stiff and dry feeling but I had lots of shine. Reading this thread reminds me that I should use it more often!

    ^ Hmm, wonder if this works better after shampoo and followed by conditioner? I tried this with no-poo method, and got stiff and a bit dry hair as you mentioned.

    Yes, it's worth trying again and following up with a conditioner. I get lots of shine and my hair is really soft. Doing a FRW rinse this morning thanks to this thread.
