Black Glutinous Rice with Black Bean and Black Sesame Porridge

Postpartum hair loss. How many of you suffered from it after delivering your baby? I had it, TWICE, both with Ethan and Ayden.

postpartum hair loss

This was what greeted me every morning. It scares the heck out of me as I really thought that I’ll be going bald.

I confided in a friend about my worries and she gave me this hair growth recipe to try. She said it will help restore my crowning glory.

Delicious and nutritious black porridge. 

Black glutinous rice, black sesame seed and black bean contain photosynthetic for pigment formation. They darken hair color and provides nutrients to hair follicle cells promoting hair growth.

I’ve been eating this once a week for a couple of months and am noticing lesser hair fall.

I can have beautiful black hair again :)

    Ah that’s great. As for me, I don’t think I found a suitable shampoo until I tried this. It helps to a certain extend lah…

    Hello! How long do you soak the ingredients and boil them for? Thanks!

    [Reply]

    Merryn Reply:

    Soak for a while or you can even skip the soaking part. I like to boil for about an hour. The black bean will dry up the water really fast so you need to check on the water level from time to time.

    Hi, do you eat it or blend it together after boil please? How many serving does this make? Thank you!

    Hi JJ,

    I just eat it all like that without blending. I’m not too sure how many serving this makes though. Sorry.
