PRE-HOLI HAIR CARE TIPS



The festival of colours is right around the corner, and everybody is excited. You might be preparing for it already, looking for organic colours, and organizing the event while gathering your family and friends to celebrate the togetherness. But are you prepared to deal with the aftermath? Do you know how to protect your hair from Holi colours yet? You must check Holi tips for skin and hair. It is essential to take a few precautions before stepping out and following certain steps post-festival to prevent skin and hair damage. Here, you can find everything you need to do to protect your hair before and after Holi.

 



1. Remove Split Ends

 

If you are wondering why do so before Holi, then let us explain this. Holi colours damage the hair and make them drier. They remove the hair's moisture and lustre, which leads to breakage and split ends. If there are existing split ends, the chances of increasing the splits also increase. Thus, if you cut them before the festival, though the hair becomes dry, splitting of hair would be less. So, get rid of these splits as much as possible.

 

2. Hair Wash

 

It’s true that you will have to wash your hair after the festival. Then why wash before the festival? If your scalp has dirt or grime, it will form residue when you oil your hair on the Holi morning. Holi colours will also accumulate in addition to this dirt. Washing this will become not only difficult but may also cause scalp problems. Thus, it is essential to cleanse your scalp and hair the day before Holi. Condition your hair as well to nourish it and prepare it for the next day. You can use a leave-in conditioner if you want. Use herbal shampoo like Lush Methi Shikakai Shampoo to cleanse your scalp well.

 

3. Oil Massage

 

No doubt it is a must-follow step. This will create a barrier while moisturizing your hair and scalp in advance to prepare it for Holi. Oiling will prevent damage, drying, and breakage of hair. You can use coconut oil or olive oil to massage. Make sure it is organic hair oil like Extra Virgin Coconut Hair Oil and not something made for dandruff or any skin condition, which usually consists of chemicals. Take your time to massage the oil to let it soak in and absorb.

 

4. Tie Your Hair Up And Cover It

 

Trying to prevent your hair from exposure to colours is another crucial step to protect it. What else can be a better option than tying it up? You can make a bun or braid it. There are so many styles you can choose to look stylish and stay safe from colour damage at the same time. Side braid, French braid, Fishtail braid are a few to name. With these, your scalp and some of the hair are well-protected. In addition to this, you can cover your hair with a bandana or a scarf. This will further protect your hair from exposure to colours. If your scalp is sensitive or has any skin problem, make sure to follow this step without failure.

 

POST-HOLI HAIR CARE TIPS

Are you wondering how to remove Holi colours from hair? These easy and must-do post-Holi hair care tips will help you.

 

1. Combing Hair Before Washing

 

What combing has to do with Holi? If you have used dry colours instead of watercolours in Holi, then there must be settled colours in your hair. Brushing your hair itself will remove so much of the powder on your scalp and in your hair. However, combing your wet hair isn’t suggested. Be sure to use combs like Just Herbs handmade neem comb to show that extra care for your hair.

 

2. Hair Wash

 

Use as much cold water as possible to get rid of most of the colour instead of shampooing hair. We suggest you avoid shampoo containing harsh chemicals as these damage scalp and hair a lot. You can use an organic shampoo like Javakusum Hair Oil. Apply organic conditioner to nourish your hair, and then rinse well. Apply hair serum if you want.

 

3. Treat The Itch

 

If the colours used are not organic, your scalp may itch if you have sensitive skin. In such a case, mix 2 tablespoons of vinegar in a mug of water and rinse your head with it. If it continues, you must consult a doctor immediately.

 

4. Hair Mask

 

Right now, your hair needs hydration and nourishment. Thus, choose a hair mask wisely. Do not choose any chemically-laden mask, as this may only harm your scalp further. Also, make sure to mask your hair roots well to nourish them well. Choose an organic hair mask instead and apply it after 2 days of Holi. This is to give your scalp and hair some rest and time to restore itself. You can also try a homemade hair mask like eggs and yoghurt mask or fenugreek and yoghurt mask. Opt for salon hair treatment only after 5 - 7 days from Holi. Try our Shirolepam Hair & Scalp Treatment Mask.

 

5. Overnight Hair Treatment

 

If you feel your hair has become very dry, apply oil or a leave-in hair mask overnight. You can wash it the next day, followed by conditioning with Kumuda - White Lily Silicone-Free Conditioner. Else, apply some serum and leave it overnight.

 

6. Haircut

 

This is an optional step. However, it is suggested because colours affect hair growth, and cutting the ends is needed for healthy hair growth. So, you can either get ends cut or choose a new hairstyle for a different look. If you have cut split ends before Holi and you have short hair, then cutting further would be difficult. In such a case, you can try trimming at home itself. If you have long hair, then there would be no issue. Make sure to follow good hair care tips for long hair in that case.

 

7. Continue Hair Care

 

Never stop caring for hair, as it isn’t a one-time thing after Holi. You must continue caring for at least 2 weeks post-Holi to get healthy and lustrous hair. If you take good care of your hair following post-Holi hair care tips for a month, your hair will look very healthy.

 

With these steps, you can prevent any damage, drying, and breakage of hair and enjoy the festival fully with your family and friends. If you opt for an organic hair care routine or multi-benefit shampoos, nothing can ever go wrong. There are so many herbal hair care products you can try.
