Holi is the festival of colours when people let go of all the restrictions and bindings and let their hair down to play with colours. Originally, as far as folklore goes, people used to extract original colour from the flower petals and play with that organic colour. But these days when commercialisation has reached its peak it is foolish to expect that Holi will be played with organic colours. Many a times the colours that are used during Holi have caused extensive harm to the hair and skin. There are people who have experienced hair loss after they have played with colours during Holi. So given are the points you need to remember if you have to save your silky tresses from the harmful effects of the chemicals used in the colours in Holi.
- Apply oil on your hair the night before you go out to play Holi. This will become like a mask to your hair and will prevent it from damage because of the colours. If oil is not applied the hair is more prone to the damages and will become drier as a result of the exposure to the colours.
- Just before you are stepping out to play Holi, add a generous dose of vinegar on your hair and ruffle it evenly into your hair. Your hair will get a protective coating that will ensure your hair retains the shine even after it is exposed to the harsh chemical effects of water colour. After you have shampooed off your hair you will find that your hair will still remain shiny even after you have played extensive Holi.
- After you have returned home make a hair pack and apply it on your hair. In the hair pack you need to add two eggs, juice of a lemon, some amount of curd and amla powder. Mix it well and apply on your hair after an initial wash. Keep for an hour and then shampoo off. Your hair will get the bounce and shine it always had and you will not experience that dry roughness in your hair that you always did after playing Holi.
- Add a serum after the hair wash so that the nutrients in your are not lost and your hair has the same beauty and bounce that it always had.
Try and follow these simple things and you can play Holi without the tension of damaging your shiny tresses.
