While Holi – the festival of colours bring joy and happiness for all, but the aftermath makes our hair out for help. In the previous post, we discussed some Skincare tips for Holi. Like your skin, your hair also need little extra care. Here are some pre and post Holi hair care tips to ensure that you enjoy yourself without worrying about your hair.
PRE HOLI HAIR CARE TIPS
Dry as well as wet colours of Holi contain harmful toxins (even if they are organic, they do have substantial amount of constituents which may cause harm to hair) that can make your hair dry and frizzy.
Before you step out to play Holi, it is very important to apply a good hair oil over the length of your hair as well as massage your scalp thoroughly. You can use any other hair oil of your choice like Argan Oil. The oil will provide a protective layer to your hair, which will prevent colours from sticking to your hair.
If you don’t like using hair oil, you can apply a gentle organic conditioner on hair before playing Holi. Take very little amount of conditioner, spread on both palms and massage light into the hair. It will help to clean your hair easily when you wash off the colours.
Cover your hair
Open hair soaks more colours, if you have long than you should braid it or make a bun, so that not all the hair gets exposed to the colours. Covering up your hair with a stylish scarf or cap will help you to look chic while providing protection to the hair. You might also consider wearing a shower cap under your cap or scarf.
Avoid Hair accessories
Try to avoid any hair accessories while playing Holi as when the hair gets wet, they become weaker from the roots and the accessories may pull them off.
