Keep your hair healthy and safe this Holi!

Each year you wait eagerly to drench yourself in the most colourful, vibrant festival – Holi. Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have that nagging worry about hair damage after playing Holi? After all, spending the next day rigorously rinsing off the colour from your hair isn’t the best end to your celebrations.

Wash away your hair worries as we show you how to keep your tresses healthy and protected this Holi.

How does Holi affect your hair?

  • Colour that settles on your scalp causes irritation, leading to itching and rashes
  • It aggravates dandruff
  • You tend to overuse your shampoo, trying to get rid of the stubborn colour
  • Your hair becomes dull, dry and brittle

This year, be sure to make your hair Holi-safe, with these tips for healthy hair:

Oil your hair: Massage your favourite natural hair oil into your scalp and along the length of your hair. This will ensure the colour doesn’t get too stubborn to wash off.

Get cover: Wearing a scarf or a bandana over your head will cut down on the amount of colour your hair comes in contact with. You can also opt for a wide headband.

Tie it up: Keeping your hair tied and secure will leave lesser surface area open to Holi colours.

Wash wisely: First rinse off the colour with plain water, to get rid of chemicals and particles. Follow it up with a mild clarifying shampoo.

Natural shampoo: This herbal tip remedy for healthy hair will double up as an effective solution to get that colour off without harming your hair. Mix 5 gm of Amla, Areetha and Shikakai (found at your local grocer) in water and let it soak overnight. Next morning, strain and massage into your hair. Rinse it off with water.

Deep condition: If the colours take longer than two days to wear off, excessive washing will strip your hair of its moisture and natural oils. It will be wiser to opt for a good hair spa treatment that will restore its moisture and repair hair damage too.

Home-made hair pack: If you are an ardent believer of home remedies for healthy hair, we recommend the fenugreek seeds + curd hair pack. Soak fenugreek seeds overnight and mix with four tablespoons of curd. Apply this to your hair and wash it off with a gentle shampoo.

Go natural: Finally, it would be great if you can avoid chemical colours and play with natural or organic colours instead. With environment issues taking the limelight, you will easily find organic colours being stocked at various stores, before Holi.

With these few simple hair care tips and tricks, you can be sure your hair enjoys the Holi festivities as much as you do! In addition to these tips, you can further browse through our website to read about tips to maintain your hair health.
