Haircare Tips For Holi:
1. Proper Oiling
Make sure that you apply sufficient oil. It has to be mixture of warm Coconut oil & Castor Oil. This will help your scalp and hair stay nourished and save your hair from dry chemical colors.
2. Shampoo Routine
You must avoid doing shampoo a day before going to play the Holi. By doing this your scalp would not loose the essential oils present on the hair and on the scalp. This will be a natural way to avoid hair fall.
You can always put up a bun by bringing all the hair tied up. Else you can always go for the tight braid as keeping the hair loose might weaken your hair.
4. Hair Wash
Use plenty of water and wash your hair with mild soap or make sure you firstly wash your hair with only plain water and then wash it with mild shampoo.
5. Oiling Post-Wash
Apply hair oil after the hair dries. This is to ensure that the hair remains hydrated and do not lose its moisture. On the other hand applying oil would nourish the scalp.
Skin Care For Holi
1. Outfit Precaution
Wear long sleeved t-shirts, & ankle length clothes to cover your skin from direct contact with colours.
2. Nails Precaution
Apply translucent nail polish to cover your nails from colours.
3. Apply a layer of moisturizer or oil, 10 mins before you step out to play.
4. Apply a coat of petroleum jelly around your eyes, ears, nose, lips so that colour doesn’t remain for long.
